Our Little Surprise

   My baby boy is officially going to be a big brother. He might not look too thrilled in these photographs, but I'm sure he'll get used to it and love his roll eventually. We knew we wanted a brother or sister for little Eli, but the news still came as somewhat of a surprise to us since we didn't really plan on having two this soon. Yet, it has genuinely been a blessing for us, and we are soooo excited.  

   My husband and I had an amazing surprise party for both our pregnancy announcement and gender reveal with our son. It was so exciting to see the look on our family's faces when we revealed we were expecting. Some were confused and some were immediately excited. It was the perfect surprise pregnancy and reveal party all rolled into one. 
  For the gender reveal, We first tallied up all of the boy and girl guesses on a chalkboard and used confetti canons to reveal the gender.  It was so spectacular. Tons of blue confetti surrounded us. We were all over the moon happy. 
  This time around, we still wanted a gender reveal and we wanted to make the experience special, but we also wanted to be low key. I had the idea of having a photographer capture our pregnancy announcement and gender reveal at our home so that it is still a special day without being a big party. 
   My husband loves to play golf, so I thought this time around he could hit a golf ball in our backyard that exploded into pink or blue smoke. I found gender reveal golf balls on Amazon for 10 bucks.  It was so easy and convenient. I called a family friend who is a photographer and he was more than happy to help capture this special day for us. He was actually the first to know the gender of our baby. We slipped him a little envelope. He gave us the appropriate golf ball and poof! We found out we were having a girl!

      We were so excited to find out baby Eli was going to be a big brother to his sister. My husband wore pink and I wore blue to show what we thought we were having. It was such a sweet moment. 

   I also bought smoke canons for some nice pink background photographs. I would definitely recommend a gender reveal if you are thinking about it. You can get creative and do whatever you want with it. You can make it big and grand or small and low key. Either way, it will be an awesome experience for you and your family.
