The Big Reveal

I will go into detail another time about my shower as I would really like to wait to get all of my pictures from that day together (we had professional ones taken by a wonderful friend), so I am going to keep this post about one thing, the big gender reveal. I will, however, share a picture of myself and my belly that my husband took the day of my shower.


As most of you know, I found out what I was having during one of my weekly scans when I was 15+3. My husband and I decided to keep things a secret until the shower. It was so difficult keeping this a secret for so long. I was so afraid of slipping but it all worked out in the end. For the reveal I decided to put gender specific balloons into a large wrapped box and have my mother and mother-in-law open it at the shower. I guess I didn't realize how much excitement there was about this. I figured that a few people would be excited, but I never expected the reveal to be the focus of the shower...it was great! Once we finished eating and dessert was being served, I brought the box over to our moms and they cut the ribbon. This is what they saw...


Yup, it's a boy!! His name is Giovanni Luca. We are very excited to finally be sharing this news with everyone. Now I can't wait to share pictures of the nursery (currently in progress). I love my little man so much!!!!
