Gender Reveal | What Will Baby Bee?

January 27, 2015
This was such a fun day for our family.  We have waited in anticipation for THREE weeks for this time to finally get here- what will this sweet baby bee?? 
So many people were involved in this event – and an extra special thank you and shout out to our sweet friend, Sarah and hubby Chris for keeping the huge secret under wraps so that we could be surprised!  On the day gender was determined, she was given permission to call my doctor and be the first to know the gender of our little miracle baby.  
Don’t you know everyone asked who and where she was!  
They all wanted a crack at her to see if she would spill the beans.
Stone-faced Sarah, I’ll call her.
The DETAILS
I was so very pleased with how well all this came together.  I was panicking on Tuesday last week feeling so unorganized, but honestly on the day of the party it was done and I was NOT stressed at all.
Ok, so.  There may have been a wig-out session around 9am on Saturday morning, but after Jordan told me to cool my jets and put me in my place for the day ahead, all was well.

The REVEAL
Truth be told- I was absolutely exhausted from everything this party entailed, and so when it was time to pop those confetti poppers, everyone was looking at me, everyone was ready and waiting with anticipation..and all these people were there to celebrate this baby (girl).
So, I cried a little.

 ..and then I just couldn’t stop screaming..

 (Amber close your mouth..)

 ..really..

 Parker and Jolie were SO confused!
But there was pure joy on our faces.

Another baby GIRL it is!
The GROUP
I didn’t realize until I could hardly walk through my house that there was literally NO ONE missing.
So very thankful for each one of these special people in our lives!

    LOVE SO MUCH! Those pictures of you and Jordan at the end of the day made me tear up! Acrually, just thinking about his prayer that night makes me tear up ? I'm a big ol' bawl baby. Everything was so beautiful. I'm ashamed I guessed wrong and wore the wrong color ? Sarah is the best friend ever for being so great about holding the exciting news in. I'm sure that was so tough for y'all lol

    Love y'all! So so happy!
