This was such a fun day for our family. We have waited in anticipation for THREE weeks for this time to finally get here- what will this sweet baby bee??
So many people were involved in this event – and an extra special thank you and shout out to our sweet friend, Sarah
and hubby Chris for keeping the huge secret under wraps so that we could be surprised! On the day gender was determined, she was given permission to call my doctor and be the first to know the gender of our little miracle baby.
Don’t you know everyone asked who and where she was!
They all wanted a crack at her to see if she would spill the beans.
Stone-faced Sarah, I’ll call her.
I was so very pleased with how well all this came together. I was panicking on Tuesday last week feeling so unorganized, but honestly on the day of the party it was done and I was NOT stressed at all.
Ok, so. There may have been a wig-out session around 9am on Saturday morning, but after Jordan told me to cool my jets and put me in my place for the day ahead, all was well.

Truth be told- I was absolutely exhausted from everything this party entailed, and so when it was time to pop those confetti poppers, everyone was looking at me, everyone was ready and waiting with anticipation..and all these people were there to celebrate this baby (girl).
So, I cried a little.
..and then I just couldn’t stop screaming..
(Amber close your mouth..)
Parker and Jolie were SO confused!
But there was pure joy on our faces.
Another baby GIRL it is!
I didn’t realize until I could hardly walk through my house that there was literally NO ONE missing.
So very thankful for each one of these special people in our lives!
