Remember my big announcement on Friday?
Well, we had the ultrasound and found out that we're having a little girl! I was so convinced that it was going to be a boy that it is taking awhile to sink in. I am so thrilled. And I think hubby is too. After the ultrasound, we had to sit in the waiting room again before meeting with my doctor, and I looked over at my husband and said, "I just want to go home now so that I can cry!" He told me to wait. Haha. I still haven't had my good cry yet, but every time I really think about the fact that I'm going to have a daughter, I tear up a little bit. :)
Since my in-laws live in town and were so excited to hear the news, we decided to have a little gender reveal party just for them.
I baked an [amazing!!!] pink cake - it is the Summer Strawberry Coconut Cake from the blog Candy Jamamas. Then I covered it in white buttercream frosting (from the same recipe), using the Rose Cake Tutorial from i am baker. Soooo yummy!
And I think it turned out rather lovely, if I do say so myself. I should have snapped a photo before it got dark out, because this picture just does not do the cake justice.
Then we let my mother-in-law cut the cake!
She was so excited.
And even more so when she realized it was pink!!
She had been expecting a boy the whole time, too!
This was such a fun way to announce our news. I only wish my family had been able to be here too.
Looking forward to everything about having a little girl!
