What will it BEE?

After much anticipation and waiting, we finally were able to go in and have our gender reveal ultrasound! We did this while pregnant with Hattie and didn't even think twice about doing it again--I mean, who doesn't want to find out ASAP right?! After much discussion and debate (and perhaps a little arguing) Mr. Pack and I agreed that we would have the tech put the results in a sealed envelope instead of us finding out while we were there. A few days before, I had called our favorite bakery and ordered the cake according to the theme of our party. Then, that day we just delivered the envelope to the bakery and they assembled the cake with the right color frosting inside for us to cut into later and reveal the gender of our little baby!

I'll be honest, having to close my eyes during the ultrasound AND not being able to sneak a peek in the envelope was harder than I thought it would be. But I am an honest woman and knew better than to cheat! Ha! Plus knowing that we would find out only hours later definitely helped too.

We had so much fun having everyone come to our gender reveal party. We feel so blessed to have so many loved ones near that support and love our little family. Here are some pictures from the grand event :)

It's a girl! Holland Claire Pack
