We’ve been passing the time. Slowly. It’s beautiful outside, for now, so I’m trying to get out and do things around the shouse. On a side note, I really hope my child greets me like my goats do.
I know what you’re thinking, with all this excitement how could life not fly by? It’s not, it’s creeping because we’ve been waiting several weeks (22) to know baby Chapman’s gender. I have no incling. No profound visions. GI Joel however just “knows” it’s a boy.
We decided to complete the ultrasound not knowing the gender and then reveal with our families together. There’s just something about the idea of me, in a hospital gown, full bladder and medical equipment everywhere that made me want to keep the experience between Joel and I. Gender reveal party it is.
GI Joel is a lifetime St. Louis Cardinals fan so a baseball theme gender reveal party seemed appropriate.
There’s no crying in baseball, or over your preferred gender…ahem…GI Joel.
For the reveal, I bought plastic baseballs, had Joel saw them open (after my failed attempt with an exacto knife) and made my own Holipowder. Not to be confused with Holy powder. Holipowder is what people toss at color runs, etc.
Classic ball park snacks were on the menu from hotdogs, Big League Chew gum, sunflower seeds and peanuts.
First pitch revealed…..
Now onto a softball game and monogramming everything.
We had 74 friends and family present!
