Our newest family member

Last Tuesday Zach and I met for a lunch date and immediately after went to our 20 week anatomy scan! We saw our sweet little baby rolling around in my tummy like a wild person. We were just about two minutes in when the tech was able to tell us what kind of baby we would be welcoming in June.

I wanted to do something fun to tell the kids. I really liked the idea of doing the balloon pop with confetti but wasn’t sure how to make that work since I wouldn’t know until that day what color I needed. I found this awesome etsy shop that shipped the big black balloon, plus pink AND blue confetti. I just had to put the right color in the black balloon. The kids were SO excited about getting balloons to play with. IMG_4735

Reed held the balloons and Ava did the popping!


And when she finally was able to get the balloon popped, they found out we are having another little baby BOY!   IMG_4776

I was a little surprised. Almost everyone thought I was having a girl, even though I couldn’t really tell one way or the other. We have a video of the popping but I hate to share it because Ava was so upset. She had her heart set on a baby sister. It was funny though b/c as soon as she saw the blue, she said “NOOOOO!” And Reed said no, also, I think just because he didn’t know why she was saying it. Then she said “Not a boy!” Reed just kept telling her to pop another one! Also a funny thing: Reed kept calling the confetti his boys. He got upset when we tried to vacuum it up so we waited until later when he wasn’t around.

My mom was in town and after dinner, she took Ava to get a treat to cheer her up and of course Reed went, too. It took a day or so but Ava is finally coming around to having a brother.IMG_4793

We are excited to add another little boy to our family. I’m excited to see his face and see who he looks like and how he’ll fit in! Just about four months to go!


  1. Congrats!! What a cute way to announce the gender!

  2. Congrats!!! This is sooooo exciting! Another wild crazy boy! We are going to do the balloon pop thing on Friday! I am glad to see someone I know do it to see it really works!!!
