Gender Reveal in Pictures

Frijole is officially a boy (although I still want the visual confirmation at my next appointment). Our original plans for a gender reveal got screwed up. Easter weekend tends to get me in one way or another. Either by it being the same weekend as my birthday or the weekend after my BIG ultrasound appointment thus leading to the bakery that I wanted to use for the cupcakes not taking any special orders. Ugh. Of course I found this out at almost the 25th hour and despite some of the bakery employees thinking my idea was adorable, it did not sway them in any way to help a pregnant sister out.

So on to plan B! I decided to make cupcakes and luckily found the mini egg cartons I wanted to use (and the WHOLE REASON I chose this particular bakery) at World Market. I knew of a giant field of bluebonnets at McAllister Park and since this kid will be a certified Texan, he should begin with his official pictures in a field of bluebonnets. It's a travesty for any Texas born child to NOT have 80 million pictures of them in a field of bluebonnets. It's how we know you're a card carrying Texan after all.

Since we moved our location to a field that was nearby we decided to text all of our friends and family to come out and join us since everyone was just as anxious to find out if Frijole was a he or she.

Excuse John's squinty eyes. I was mean and horrible and made him take his sunglasses off for our pictures.

My mom was the secret keeper for a whole 2 days following my appointment.

Yes, I know my blue cupcakes look green. I swear the sun bleached these out because the ones I had at home were more blue. Plus 25th hour folks! I didn't have time to buy/find the non-liquid blue food coloring. Also, the dog kept getting onto the counter and eating cupcakes.

  3. It was very fun! Glad to be a part of it. And, for the record, I've NEVER previously had any inkling of what variety of baby anyone is carrying so the fact that I thought "male" prior to the reveal should say something. Sorry Friend, it's snails and puppy dog tails for you!
