Surprise...we found out!!!

Surprise folks (no, this is not an April Fools joke!)....we found out the sex of baby #2 at my 20 week appointment this past Friday! It took a lot of nagging convincing Josh to let us find out, but he is so good to me and eventually gave in to my request! Josh really wanted to keep this baby a surprise like we did for Lucy, but momma here just had to know! It really was so much fun finding out on Friday, and tonight we had our families over for the big reveal....

This darling banner (from my nursery rhyme themed baby shower for Lucy) worked perfectly for the party...so glad I kept it!
The cake I made...
I asked everyone to wear blue if they thought it was boy, and pink if they thought it was a girl. Right before the ultrasound, Josh guessed boy and I guessed girl....Lucy wore purple since blue and pink mixed makes purple!
Team pink...
Team blue...
The grandmothers had the honors of cutting the cake!
My favorite picture of the night...
It's a GIRL!!!
I had Dad and Corinne on FaceTime, so we were making sure they got a good look at the PINK cake!
Lucy did not like all of the screaming...
Look at that sweet tear...poor girl! She already knows that she's going to have to share her clothes!
Josh and Lucy made a quick wardrobe change so we were all wearing pink!
Sisters they will be!!! I'm so excited for Lucy!

Here is the video Josh took from tonight...



20 weeks...growing fast and feeling lots of kicks!
We are so excited to welcome another sweet baby girl into our family!! What a blessing....thank you Jesus!
