We went to 3D Dreams to find out Baby#2's gender this past Saturday. We had not been to them before and they were fantastic! They are qualified ultrasound technicians who actually specialize in high-risk pregnancy ultrasounds, and they do 3D Dreams as a little side business. She was so nice and took time to show us hands, feet, heartbeat, the baby swallowing, kicking, nasal bone formation, blood flow overlay, etc. I was really impressed because I was not expecting it to be that detailed, but it was very similar to a full anatomy ultrasound at my OB's office.
With Ryleigh, we were the only ones who knew and we surprised everyone else. This time, I thought it would be fun if we waited and had them put their decision in an envelope. We gave it to one of my friends so that Jake and I could stay surprised for the reveal.
Since this was our second go'round we wanted to keep it simple and low key. No big party, just a family gathering with beautiful weather, pizza, snacks and cake. I'm sad that I did not get a picture of the cake, but it was a bundt cake that I made adapting this recipe into a pink & blue velvet cake with cream cheese whipped frosting and chocolate flakes on top.
It looked so pretty when it was cut!
We are excited that Ryleigh is going to have a little sister!
Aubrey Kate will be arriving sometime this October.
