If you expect to find out the gender of our baby from the get go, then… how do I put it nicely… well… then you don’t know me!!! Go and read my blog from the very beginning! NOW! *Fine! Since I’m in a good mood today, just read to the end of this post and we’ll call it even!*

So let me start from the very beginning. Justin and I found out what we would have on Friday. It was super exciting to see our baby for the second time! I can’t explain the joy of seeing pretty little face, fingers and toes! It still hasn’t really hit me yet that there is a baby growing inside of me. It’s truly a miracle!

We decided to reveal the secret to our families first over Sunday lunch. I must admit that both sides of the family tried some dirty tricks to fish out some information… But what can I say? I am a true Spartan girl, I don’t break. *How cheesy! I love it! Haha!*

On Friday evening, Justin and I went to a children clothing store and picked out the very first outfit for our baby. We also bought a few decorations for the table to keep the suspense and keep our families on guessing.

Needless to say, there was a lot of noise and action over that little box! I love messing with people’s minds!!! *Oh wait! I’m so sorry! I’m still messing with yours! NOT!*

Oh… I’m sorry! You are still waiting to find out what it is!!! You know… I’m pregnant… It’s so easy to get side-tracked by food!!! *wink,wink*

Alrighty! The secret shall be revealed now. However, I must warn you… It’s not 100% sure yet! It was hard to tell because baby’s legs were crossed. *As the doctor said, ‘Don’t paint the walls yet!’*

Drum roll… It’s a…

It's a girl

It’s a GIRL!!!

We are extremely excited! That being said, even if in the end of the day it turns out to be a boy, we’ll be equally thrilled. All we truly care about is that the baby is healthy!

Without further ado, our traditional big family picture. *I love them dearly!!!*
