We Caved!










When I say "we".... I mean Jeff. See, almost 4 weeks ago we decided to have the US tech put the gender of our baby in an envelope. We weren't quite sure if we were going to wait for the surprise or not. Earlier in the week Jeff told me he wanted to find out.
So a few days of planning brought us to today.... November 12, 2011. The day we found out boy or girl? It was a gorgeous afternoon. Surrounded by our close family, we cut open a box which would have either pink balloons or blue balloons. Neither of us knew.. or those in attendance.
It was so exciting. And I got more emotional than I thought!! Its a BOY! Really! I know I have been saying it all along, but really... its A B-O-Y!

Couldn't be more excited :)
