In India it's illegal to find out the gender of a baby before birth, so we had to wait till we got to America to have an ultrasound to find out. It was such suspense!
Finally on my birthday, we got to go to the doctor and have the sonogram. Thankfully, baby didn't keep us in suspense any longer to find out. It was obviously a BOY!!
I was shocked beyond shocked. I would have sworn we were having another girl, because the pregnancy was sooooo similar to my pregnancy with Layla vs. being pregnant with Landon. He's just a sneaky little guy I guess :) I'm super glad we found out though so I didn't continue on being convinced it was a girl...that would have been REALLY shocking in the delivery room!
Here's the photo gender announcement that we sent out to our family and friends:
We should have put a question mark between the third set of blue and pink sugar packets in the top picture, because apparently it confused some people thinking we were having twins or something. NOT!
Actually, the picture is from a funny origin...I wanted to create some sort of fun announcement, but we had driven for the day to Manhattan to see the doctor, so we were getting texts from family like crazy anxious to know if it was a boy or a girl, because they knew we were having the ultrasound. However, I was also having to do my glucose test that day, which meant I hadn't eaten all night and was miserably hungry. So we still had to wait at the doctor's office for about an hour even after the ultrasound to finish out the glucose test. In that time Kyle and I were brainstorming ideas of pictures we could create with balloons, or outfits, etc. but after we were done at the doctor, my first priority was FOOD. Did I also mention it was my birthday? So we went to my favorite breakfast restaurant to eat brunch as soon as we were finished at the doctor's office, and decided we wanted to do something quickly to respond to our
impatient curious family members. We were sitting there sipping coffee, Kyle pulled out the pink and blue sugar packets, and we went from there :)
So excited to meet this sweet little boy in just a few weeks!
