Gender Reveal

Mr. G had it set in his head that he wanted to wait to find out if baby #3 was a girl or boy until B-day but I finally convinced him otherwise.  I had this feeling with how consumed Bubby is with Sugar Baby that if the baby wasn't the gender that Bubby wanted then she would be very upset.  I didn't want Bubby feel sad on the day his brother or sister arrived so I thought it would be a good idea to know ahead of time and then have a chance to get him used to the idea before the big day. 
So the other day I had another ultrasound and I found out what the baby is.  I then decided to bake a cake and put either blue or pink inside the cake so that when Mr. G cut the cake he would find out if it is a boy or a girl. 
The original plan was to have a cake made for me with the correct color inside but after several calls around town I couldn't find anybody to make one for me spur of the moment so the kids and I went to the store and came home and made our own cake.  I was a bit worried because Bubby G saw the color of the cake and I didn't know if he would tell everyone or not before we get a chance to cut the cake.
The kids had no idea what was going on but they were excited when I told them that Grandma and Papa and their cousins and aunt were coming over that night to find out what the baby is.

Once we got everyone gathered 'round Mr. G cut the cake.  Watch the following video to find out if we are having a boy or a girl.

It took a lil bit but we finally got Bubby smiling again.  Poor guy was just not very happy with the idea of a baby brother.  We had thought at first he wanted a baby brother but then we realized that he wanted his lil sugar baby to be a boy and my Sugar Baby to be a girl.  It is gonna take some time I think before he gets used to the idea.  But it will be okay I'm sure. 
We passed around some cake and enjoyed an evening of talking about the new lil man and how Sissy's gonna have to be a tough lil girl and how much fun the kids will have together. 
And we definitely enjoyed us some cake.
And I didn't even have to use food coloring for the inside of the cake.  It came blue already which was a big help.
She has no idea what it means to have a baby brother but she definitely loved her some cake.
Sweet smiles.
When the evening was over I Facetimed my folks and told them the news.  They were so excited.  We already have a name picked out which, of course, I can't say on here.  The only issue with the name we have picked out is that it is not Sugar Baby and Bubby is just not okay with that.  This poor lil guy might be known as Sugar Baby for the rest of his life.  This could be an issue. 

Thank you, Lord, for a healthy baby boy.  We feel so blessed to be welcoming another lil one into our family.  We pray for his continued health as you mold and make him into the lil man you want him to be.  We love him so much already and can't wait for his arrival!!!
