What color is it?

Remember when you anxiously awaited that milestone in your pregnancy? No, not the one where it was over. :) The one where you could finally find out the sex of the baby?
Baby #1 we found out as soon as we could.
We made a big production of our middle baby's secret. We were going to my hubby's home in England and would also be visiting France, and that week was our anniversary. The ultrasound tech put the secret in an envelope for us. We decided to open it one night while Nanny and Grandad were watching boy#1 back at the hotel. We went to the Eiffle Tower and opened it there. It was sweet and memorable...slightly shocking too because I was SURE it was a girl. Nope. Blue. Again.
Baby #3 was supposed to be a surprise and we told all the nurses and our doctor that no one was to speak a word about it. Hubby was to be the first to exclaim, "its a ---". Unfortunately that detail was left out during the emergency c-section so the anesthesiologist was the one to break the news to me. Um...yay, thanks.

Needless to say, it's special any way you do it. But check out this awesome way that one couple found out and shared the news with their families. My friends over at Chic Blvd. are following one mom-to-be who shares her big secret with the world via online video. Get out your hanky, this one made me cry!

    OMG! Yeah, have the hanky ready for that one! Good grief, I'm blubbering here over these people I don't even know! LOL! Thanks for sharing, though... what a special thing, and how creative are they to do it that way?
