Pink or Blue

I read about it in a magazine. And I thought it was the best. idea. ever. Well, maybe not ever... But pretty close. It was about cake. Pink or blue cake and a good surprise. The idea was, after your ultrasound, have the tech write on a piece of paper whether you were having a boy or girl, and stick it inside a sealed envelope so you cannot read it. Take the envelope to a bakery and have them make you a pink or blue cake depending on what is in the envelope, but frost the cake neutrally. I took it from there. I fashioned pink and blue flags so my guests could wave them in anticipation and share their guess. I also colored sugar with a few drops of food coloring so we could sprinkle our ice cream appropriately. Tonight we had our party. Adam, my very good secret keeper, kept the secret safe after he passed along the information to our cake baker, who turned out to be my Aunt, since the bakery didn't work out. Check out the pictures to see how it all played out!
Pink and blue flags await the voting!
The mystery cake
The crowd had voted. It's a pretty even vote! Might say 50/50.
"You mean, it's a brother?"
Happy Mom and Dad!
Boy: A noise with dirt on it.

Road Trippin'

We road-tripped it this past month. My friend Emily and I embarked on an adventure and drove 14 hours south to see our mutual friend Carissa and her new baby. We spent the week (almost) together, and didn't stop moving the entire time. The baby is the sweetest thing ever... I can't wait for Carissa to bring her to NY to visit in June.

My Sweets

Family. They mean the world to me. And I am growing more and more fond of them each day. I am soaking in my little boy each day I can. We snuggle longer before bedtime, way past "bedtime". He sits with me and begs for another story. He asks to kiss the baby, so I let him kiss my belly. He pokes at my flat belly button and I imagine how he is going to have to share me in four and half short months. He's been my only child for four and half years. We've never known any different. I'm sure he will love his little baby, and hopefully he won't feel any resentment at having to share his Mom and Dad and his snuggle space. As for my honey, I think he is growing sweeter every day. I just love this picture of the both of them.
