One might think that we could have waited to find out what we were having this time, seeing how we have one of each already....but we just aren't that patient. On top of it we are so over the moon excited for this baby that we couldn't wait to know what it was going to be. We went for an early reveal at 16 weeks and Bebe Tres was showing off in every way possible. We decided the night before we were going to invite a few friends and family to come celebrate with us. I wasn't quite sure if we should make it a big thing or not since it IS our third baby, but a reason to get together and rejoice over this little blessing seemed like a good decision.
We met at Graeter's, I whipped up a chalk sign, and had everyone choose pink or blue sprinkles to place their guess in their ice cream bowl.
Henry and Mallie Lynn decided over the past week to switch teams as Henry rooted on a baby brother and Mallie Lynn wanted a sister. So Mr. H was beyond thrilled to have "won" and guessed he was having a baby brother, and Mallie Lynn was just excited to have an ice cream cone. (She would later ask me where the girl was?) :)
We are so excited to be welcoming a baby boy to our family and know that everything about this plan for our family is perfect. Henry can't wait to teach him how to throw and catch a ball and Mallie Lynn can't wait to help feed him! This little man is so loved already and sure has a lot of people talking to him in the womb. God is so good!
