Just call me Momma-Can't-Wait

So I've been telling a few fibs since Saturday, and left out a little chunk of Saturday's events of celebrating my 30th birthday.  :)

I decided I couldn't wait until March 1st to find out Baby #2's gender, so I made an appointment at a local 3D/4D Ultrasound office (not linked to our doctor's office) for this past Saturday afternoon.  Keith and I went, while Knox napped under the supervision of our neighbors, and found out that our sweet second child is, in fact...
Since we've never been able to do anything fun revealing that we're pregnant or Knox's gender, due to distance between us and family/close friends, we wanted to do something fun to tell our parent's the gender of this baby.  It will be our last child, after all (two's our limit--man on man defense in this household--no zone!)  We hardly told anyone so we could get packages in the mail and to our parents before we told the whole world.  :)

Here are a few pics of what we put in the package to tell our parents:
 Knox holding a balloon similar to what we sent.  Keith thought I was crazy since I bought them the Thursday before we went for the ultrasound Saturday.

Balloon again.  My thought was that when they opened the package, the balloon would pop out.  Mylar balloons stay inflated forever--and apparently mail well too!
 The "balloon weight" was pink M&Ms in a favor bag and a favor topper I made to match the cards I sent with the package.

The card I sent... :)
We obviously would have been thrilled either way, but we are beyond excited and extremely blessed to have both a boy and a girl.  So let the pink buying begin for little Miss Cecily Blanche!
