Baby Northcutt Gender Reveal

Boy OR Girl?! That is what we ALL wanted to know Saturday night at Baby Northcutt's gender reveal party. So, this is how it all played out...

Jeremy and I had our 20 week ultrasound last Friday. I was thrilled to have my mom and aunt in town. The four of us went back and I got all jellied up on the table. We notified the ultrasound tech that we would like for her to write down the gender of the baby on a sealed envelope and NOT to tell us. When she zoomed in on the bottom, we all turned our heads. It was so hard to look away!!! After, the ultrasound, we dropped the envelope off at the bakery. The girls at the bakery were so excited because they were the FIRST people(outside of the doctors office) to know the gender of our little one.

All of the waiting was worth it on Saturday night! Our family and closest friends joined us for dinner and the cake cutting! Guests wore pink or blue to vote on the gender. I will say that team blue outnumbered team pink! Once everyone arrived, the decision was made to cut the cake BEFORE having dinner. I don't think I could have waited another minute to find out. All of our family and friends gathered around our dining room table. I felt so many emotions before cutting the cake. It was that same excited/nervous feeling you get right before you walk down the aisle!
