Gender Reveal - It's A ...........!!!


We spent the day with smiles plastered across our faces - giving so much thanks for our beautiful, healthy baby - our anatomy scan was incredible and yes, so SO neat!  The brain, heart, everything -  all checked out perfectly.  We feel so blessed.  And after two hours of making phone calls, crying, screaming and jumping up and down with joy...
It's time for the reveal.

P.S. - The reveal is not until the very, very end of the video.  Oh, and Steve thought he turned the camera off.  He didn't.  So the end is super hilarious - it's in the process of being cut but I can't wait to post any longer.  On second thought, I'll post the edited and unedited version
 because we both kinda like the extra stuff. :)

Thank you for all the love and all the fun and sweet comments on my last post! <3
