This year we added an egg for Baby Bum!
We were so excited to find out during our ultrasound a few weeks ago that Baby Bum is a girl! Of course, we would have been happy with either, but it's fun to put a gender and a name to our baby. We do have a name picked out, but we're not sharing with anyone until after she's born. And I'll actually be honest with you guys: I haven't decided if I feel comfortable sharing her name at all on the blog or if I'll just give her a nickname.
Of course, I don't mind if YOU know, but for some reason the whole Internet creepster thing takes on a new meaning when I think about my children. I don't know. I guess we'll have to wait and see how I feel about it later. But for now, I'll just keep calling her Baby Bum. (And don't worry: even if I do decide to keep the name private on the blog, I will totally tell you if you want to know. It will just be more of a private email type of situation. I'd be interested to know your personal feelings about this type of thing. I know bloggers who do it both ways and definitely see both sides.)
We told Jordan's family the night after our ultrasound, and it worked out well that I was planning on going to Texas that weekend anyway for my half marathon, so we were able to tell my family in person! My brother took a video of our fun reveal, and you can check it out below. My mom takes full credit for the balloon idea, by the way.
Jordan and I each had six balloons--three of each color--and we took turns popping them until there was just one balloon left. My family didn't know exactly what we were going to do, and they all thought we were going to pop until just one COLOR was left, so that's why in the video there's a huge cheer and then a pause and then another cheer. Cracks me up every time I watch it.
Thank you all so much for your excitement about our announcement and your prayers for a healthy pregnancy. It's been fun sharing this with all of you!
