A Boy! Our appointment was Friday at 2pm and I wanted to tell you all, but then you would have spent the past 24 hours with baited breath looking for my post. It was so much fun spending the night talking about future Mr. Nugget and knowing that Andy and I...okay and the ultrasound tech...were the only ones who knew. The phone wasn't ringing off the hook from parents and friends because everyone was still expecting us to find out next Friday. And it was fun getting everything ready to surprise our parents. For Andy's parents in PA I ordered an arrangement of all white flowers and then called them back as soon as we knew so they could put a blue ribbon on the vase and write "It's a Boy" on the card.
For my SMIL and SSIL, I gave them the cupcakes this morning, I didn't quite have the energy to die the icing blue or the batter....because I wanted to make chocolate cupcakes mmmmm, so I put blue sprinkles on the top. I gave each of them a white chinese take-out box that I got at Michael's this morning before we went to the consignment sale and told them they needed to open it. Sure enough my SMIL opened it and asked 'hmmm why is it blue?'. They were really excited and I was super excited to be able to pick out lots of little overalls for Nugget. Don't worry I will take lots of pictures and show you the cute stuff I found!
As for everyone else, I let Andy go nuts. He called his dad and sister and pretty much everyone else we know. I called my Grandpa Gumbo, who after saying hello said 'How's my Great Grandson?' when I told him it was indeed a boy he was like 'yeah like I said'. Hahaha so sassy. I also called my Grandma and had to spend 15 minutes "mmm hmmm"ing while she talked about getting stuff ready to go to Good Will. Finally I was able to tell her it was going to be a little boy. Then I spent the next 30 minutes listening to the same stories she always tells me. I promise to post lots of pictures from the ultrasound soon. But right now I need to sleep :).
But if you are wondering, yes, now I am thinking back about having a penis growing inside me . hahaha.
