The party last night was a lot of fun! Israel and I found out at my sonogram in the morning what the gender of our baby was, so it hard keeping it a secret all day! I think I even managed to trick my mom, too. ;) As soon as we got home from my appointment, I started making preparations for the evening-- making the cake, frosting it about four or five times just to cover the color, cleaning, and organizing things. The big reveal was going to be later on inside of the cake. Nobody knew but Israel and I before we cut the cake.
Our guests started arriving and we just ate and talked for a while. This was my first time seeing my aunts and uncles since I've been back (and pregnant) so it was fun catching up with them. We had everyone wear either a boy or girl sticker to display their guesses for the evening. Israel and I organized an Old Wives' Tale Trivia Quiz, which we tested everyone's knowledge of old wives' tales about gender prediction. The old wives' tales were pretty split between boy or girl for my pregnancy. ;)
Soon it was time to finally cut the cake! We had my parents cut it since I really wanted to see their reactions! My dad was thinking all along it was a girl, and while that was my mom's initial guess she was swayed by the Cubans and really thought it might be a boy even though she was hoping for a girl....
The final tally :)
We are thrilled to meet our little girl in a few months!!
