Then we had the ultra sounds and found out.................
So this weekend we did a lot of stuff focusing on the new baby. Even though we are having another boy and have no need for another baby shower we went and registered for a few things. It's more for ourselves a kind of "Wish List" if you will that we will purchase off of and if any family were to want to they could too. Registering also means free goodies and coupons in the mail!!! I also bought him a little outfit but failed in finding a blanket I wanted to buy for him...hoping to find one this weekend. We kept pretty much everything from our first son so we don't really need anything but Zachary needs a few of his own things too!
Sunday we had a Gender Reveal Party planned for close family and super close friends. A little craftiness went into it so figured I would share some stuff we did. Most ideas picked up from Pinterest of course!
First off I didn't get a picture of the boxes I made so I'll try to explain. I decorated 2 empty baby wipe boxes. One saying "Team Girl" and one saying "Team Boy". Everyone was to write their name on a slip of baby and put it into the box that went w/ the gender they thought the baby was. Of course 90% of everyone thought girl!! So we had our son Gregory draw a name out of each box. The name from the "Team Boy" box was Greg (stepdad) seen above and the name drawn from "Team Girl" is Norma who is my MIL. They each received a balloon of the color that went w/ their gender guess. The balloon that expanded was the winner! As you can see the blue balloon shows it's a boy.
Anyways....... so that is what I've been up to since I posted last. It's been a few days too long so I do apologize for that but at least this time I have pictures to share and in that is some craftiness on my part since I've horribly lacked in this department!!!
