gender reveal party revealed.

Yesterday was the big day. The day we tallied the votes and revealed the gender of this little bean growing in my belly.

It was a pink and blue "Cast Your Vote" theme where everyone was asked to wear either pink or blue based on what they thought we were going to have.

We had a tally board where people were able to write their name and "cast their vote". Even Toby was excited to vote!

Me doing some really weird pose... I am not sure what I was trying to do here but I feel like I look a little like a crazy fat lady. Funny enough to share I thought :)

After everyone arrived (both our Australian guests and online family and friends) we tallied the votes and prepared for the big reveal.

And after weeks of guessing and dreaming and thinking and talking about this little baby, the time was finally here when we would actually find out. We were both so excited to finally know but strangely a little nervous as well. Just that feeling of anticipation I guess! They only thing between us and knowing our baby's gender was one little strip of tape... ahhh!!!
