our gender reveal!

Yesterday was one of the most exciting days so far in the pregnancy. Not only did we get to see the baby for the first time since it was seven weeks, but we found out we are having a BOY!! We could not be more thrilled with the news. Of course, we would have been equally as excited with a girl, but it’s just being able to call ‘it’ a ‘he’ now is the best feeling ever!

We knew we wanted to find out the gender before the baby came, but we didn’t necessarily want to find out at the doctor’s office. We didn’t want  to do a gender reveal party, but we still wanted to do something fun and (somewhat) original. We think we came up with this idea, but I’m sure it’s been done.

Before the appointment we purchased two tubes of acrylic paint (light pink and light blue) and a baby pumpkin. We had the doctor put the paint color of the gender in a box we painted up all cute. After the appointment we went to a nearby park and opened the box to reveal the color and painted our pumpkin! We had so much fun doing it this way and we even got to capture our reactions on a video!

Here are some pictures:
