It’s A………….!!!!!

I interrupt the Guilty Jean jewelry series for a very special announcement!!!  The hubby and I went to the doctor on Friday for our anatomy ultrasound for Little Monkey.  We opted not to find out the sex of the baby that day.  However, we decided to plan a little surprise reveal for ourselves.  We had the nurse write down the sex and place it in a sealed envelope along with the ultrasound photograph of “the goods.”  We then took the envelope along with a large empty box to Hallmark and asked them to fill the box with either pink or blue balloons depending on whether Little Monkey was a girl or boy.  Yes…the Hallmark employees knew before we did!  They wrapped the box up beautifully, and when we opened it…SURPRISE!!!  Our friend, Justin, was gracious enough to spend the day with us and document this special moment.  We are so thankful for the many photographs he took and time he spent working on them.  I think they turned out fantastic.  Scroll down to see the big reveal for yourselves!

Were you surprised?  Or did you “know” already?

As you can see by the photos above, Zack and I were clearly shocked!  It was such a magical day, and I’m glad we decided to do something fun and a little different to reveal the sex of Little Monkey.  We are so excited for our little bundle of joy, and cannot wait for our Baby Boy to get here in September.  I already ended up buying him his first onesie today at Brooklyn Flea.  I mean, come on.  There was a panda on it.  You can’t blame me.

We had such an amazing weekend, and it is definitely one we will remember.  We are so glad we have these photos to capture our surprise and excitement of this day, and I look forward to showing them to our Little Boy one day.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

XO,

Gina
