It's a..........

A couple of weeks ago we had a BBQ/sex reveal party.  Instead of having my midwife tell me the sex over the phone, I forced myself to wait (it was tough!), so that Ben and I could find out together, along with some of our closest friends.  

One of my friends owns a coffee shop and her mom is the pastry chef there.  She had her mom call my midwife to find out the sex and then she made the cake for us (which of course either had blue or pink icing on the inside to indicate boy or girl).  So no one at the party knew the sex ahead of time.  We all gathered, talked, mingled, ate, and stared at the cake.  The anticipation was too much!  Finally, as we were waiting on some people to finish eating, we set a timer and let everyone know that we would cut the cake as soon as the timer went off, no matter what!  That forced people to pick up the pace and we got the BBQ/eating over with:)

As soon as the timer went off, we asked everyone to make a guess.  Almost everyone at the party guessed girl.  I think there were only 2 people (including Ben) that guessed boy.  Ben and I each got a knife and cut into the cake at the same time.  I was so nervous and excited!  I'll let the pictures do the talking from here.  

Yep, we are having a boy!  We are over the moon excited!!!!  

Here is my outfit from that day:
