It's a.....

well most of you know but I am still going to write the entire post before I say ;~)

If you remember with Chase, we had a fun way of finding out if he was a boy or a girl... and since baby #2 often gets a raw deal, we thought we should try to do something memorable again!

So at the appointment the tech gave us a sealed envelope and wished us luck. Adam suggested going to dinner... specifically LJ's and the Kat Lounge. Who am I to turn that place down ;~) Seriously... if you haven't been there, please do yourself a favor and go. Adam is friends with the owner and planned on seeing him later that day... he would see if Alex would do something fun with dessert to 'reveal' to us what we were having.

To say that Alex was enthusiastic is an understatement... he was thrilled to help us out! He couldn't get over the fact that he would know before we did ;~)

I posted on Twitter/FB that we were going to find out later that night over dinner... much to the consternation of many of my friends.

All through dinner Adam and I were getting messages like this...

Never the one to let an opportunity go, I posted this...

My friends were not amused ;~)

I even got personal messages like this...

Ironically just as Kristen sent this, we were finding out!

Alex and our waiter brought over a covered dish and our waiter did the reveal (while Alex took pictures... man after my own heart!!!)

And the verdict is Chase will have a little baby brother!!!

The dessert chef did such a great job with our little cake. Clearly the blue indicated boy but she went a step further and added some cute detail...

I am still in shock that I am going to be a mom to 2 boys... by the end of the year at that! I am really excited for Chase to have a little brother. Even though he has been pro sister for so long, I think a little brother will suit him well. Actually at the ultrasound, we asked Chase if he wanted a sister or a brother and he answered brother! We joked that maybe he saw something we didn't!

To that end, we told Chase the next morning when we were having a morning cuddle and he was all smiles. He patted my belly and said hi to lil bean... I think all will be well ;~)

Anyway, after we found out, of course we sent out a picture immediately! Our adoring public was waiting ;~)

I got some of the following messages back (along with loads of Congrats!)

It was such a great night! A big thank you to all our friends who made finding out so much more fun then we thought it could be!

Also, a huge thank you to Alex and the staff of LJ's. Thanks so much for making the night special and memorable! You guys are amazing! (Seriously readers, do yourself a favor and GO!)

Now to start the name game!!
