IT'S A...Baby Cook's Gender Reveal

Today Mommy's friend Emily threw us a Baby Gender Reveal Party. 

This is a new thing where soon to be parents get to tell their family and friends in a fun way, altogether what the baby is. 
To prepare for the big reveal, Mommy had her students vote on what they thought you were. 

Mommy also had each table of her students come up with a boy name and girl name for you.  Here were the choices.  Sorry to say, Mommy and Daddy will not be choosing any of them as your name.

Mommy also made a wives tales board for the party.  On the board there are a lot of wives tales of what the baby's gender might be, according to the board there was a 50/50 chance you were a boy/girl.  Wives tales don't really work, Mommy learned!

We were so excited to share the news with everyone. 

So many people love you already and came to hear/see the news! There was a ton of good food too!

Nani made chicken wings, artichoke dip and cupcakes!  Mommy brought some veggies, pink and blue punch, and made Daddy's favorite wings.

Emily made the BEST sweet treats; cake balls and fruity pebble skewers. 

She also made a yummy buffalo chicken dip!  As all of the guests started arriving we all ate and chatted for awhile. Then it was time for the big reveal.  Emily was kind enough to get some balloons in your color and put them in a big box.  When it was time, we brought the box outside and opened it in front of everyone.

Here's a video of Mommy and Daddy sharing the good news!!
