Back in November, we posted about our dilemma to find out baby’s gender or not. One of our sweet readers Carlee said it was one of life’s only true surprises, which motivated us to wait until delivery day. We squirmed all through our 18-week appointment but did not peek when the ultrasound tech checked baby’s “parts.” We left clutching the sealed envelope with baby’s gender.
Fast forward to New Years Eve… we do what we do every holiday season: watch the complete set of Seinfeld. We are huge fans and are naming the baby Seven. Just kiddingSeason 3 Episode 18 plays and we keep hearing “You gotta see the baby, Jerry! The baby!” to which my hubby turns to me and starts pestering me about opening the envelope. I told him he can find out but not to tell me (yeah right!) so we tore it open together but were left standing with blank pieces of paper. Ha ha- the tech tricked us!
…………no, she didn’t; it fell out of the envelope and our sweet 19-month old son was holding the card saying “It’s A…………”
To tell our families, we printed New Years cards and subtly added, “…we are expecting another son…” into the 2011 wrap up. It was fun to get calls/texts of surprised grandparents/aunts/uncles of this baby who didn’t think we were going to find out his gender.
