We decided to throw a little party to announce the gender of our baby! I was hesitant to do so because I thought gender reveal parties were a slightly self-absorbed excuse to have another celebration and receive presents if you're already going to have a baby shower. But I thought a little longer and realized it's actually such a fun way to get everyone involved and excited with us, and Matt deserves to have a celebration for his new baby with his friends too, because men don't usually go to baby showers. :) And I could say "no gifts please" on the invitation! Plus, I mainly wanted to do it because the photos from the party would be the best announcement. So Matt and I put on a super low-key get-together at a park and we had so much fun! I wish more of our family could have been there to join us!
So! Here it is! We are having a....
Sweet baby girl!
