Well it’s been 20 weeks in the making and I mean that literally. Finally Brittney and I were going to find out the sex of our baby. We have been so excited for this moment and could not wait to call our kid by their real name instead of referring to them as “IT” all the time.
When we got to the doctor’s office we just could not wait to get back there and found a since of relief as the girl called our name. We went back in a rather large room and Brittney jump on the table and pulled her shirt up like a pro. As the technician was performing the ultrasound we held hands and smiled at the glimpse of our baby’s growth. It is amazing watching it move around. When the technician finally told us what we were having, we both looked at each other and smiled.
Before Brittney got pregnant she told me that she wanted to do a Gender Reveal Party. I have never heard of these and if I am being honest here, I thought that it sounded stupid. I did go along with the idea.
For anyone who does not know what this type of party consist of, please let me tell you. You bake a cake with the inside dyed either pink or blue and call your families and either go out to dinner or host one at your house. Real simple right? The hardest part is keeping it a secret until the party.
We chose to have our dinner at Olive Garden in Monroe. Both of our families came and we enjoyed a really nice meal with light conversation. Then the moment everyone was waiting for. The cake! We brought the cake out and had our families gather around as Brittney and I cut into it and revealed that it was………
Brittney and I are so happy to announce that we are going to have a daughter. Our families are very excited and can’t wait to welcome the newest addition to the clan. Now with only 20 more weeks left to go, I can say that I am truly excited to hold my baby girl for the first time. Karsyn Leigh Funderburke is going to be real daddy’s girl and I am sure I will be wrapped around her finger. Can’t wait! She makes my heart melt already!
