j & i decided to have the ultrasound tech write down the gender of our baby so we could find out the gender together with our family. party on. we actually had the ultrasound tech email a friend whom we had asked to make a very special batch of cookies. cake ball stuffed chocolate chip cookies. how amazing is that for a pregnant girl?! the cake ball inside would be either pink or blue. i came across these amazing cookies here.
as i started planning the party menu, it kind of turned into my cravings menu...
homemade soft pretzels with jalapeño cheese sauce
sweet potato fries
spinach salad with gram's homemade dressing
southern style macaroni & cheese
orange creme pop
my sister made the fried pickles and soft pretzels. i'm pretty sure i've had dreams about those soft pretzels. totally amazing. commander, please make them again. tomorrow?
we tallied up the votes and it was pretty much split. j & i were both thinking girl, though we were not confident like we were with fabienne. fabs wore a blue dress to the party, so i guess she was thinking boy.
my little sister skyped in from santa barbara, which was amazing. i love this picture she captured...
aahhh! i can't believe the cake ball was blue?! i am going to have a little boy!
i feel like i am still trying to wrap my mind around that.
we are so excited for this little guy to join our family. he's gonna have an amazing big sister.
