baby jowett - we can't wait to meet you!!!

last tuesday i went in for my 20 week ultrasound - ummmm, how did i hit 5 months already?!!?

everything tested normal and healthy and during that time they were also able to determine the gender of the baby...instead of finding out then and there, brian and i asked the ultrasound technician to write it down and place it in a sealed envelope, which i then gave to one of my dear friends, melody from sweet and saucy shop...she baked us the most adorable cake that was going to be either pink or blue inside...i honestly don't know how she was able to keep the secret but she did!

since no one is going to be in the delivery room with me and brian when our baby is born, we thought this is the best way for our friends and family to see our genuine and true reactions to finding out what we are having...a way for them to experience our emotions as we get one step closer to knowing this little person we have created...

as soon as we cut the cake, i was trying to contain myself but hormones and emotions got the best of me and of course i starting crying...thats why you see me waving my hands around non-stop, trying to hold back the tears...yeaaahhhh, didn't work ;)

here's a peek at how our lives are about to change forever!

ps. and that's NON-alcoholic champagne i am drinking ;)

Yay. Sad I missed the big cake unveiling, but happy to know that a bouncing baby boy is on his way. Can't wait to hold him and sing to him and watch you squeeze him. Hey and a sip of real champagne would have been ok in my book too ;) xo
