We wanted to announce the baby’s gender in a special way since we’re thinking this will be our last child. We decided to announce it last Sunday since we were getting together for a beach day! It was definitely hard to keep it a surprise since the gender was written in an envelope in the house for a whole week! I felt relieved to finally pass it over to the balloon store knowing that I didn’t have to fight that temptation any longer! I’m such a control freak… I made sure to call the balloon store before we picked it up to make sure that they were secured in the box & there was no way we could possibly peak! I really wanted to make sure that our families found out at the same time! To my surprise it actually turned out as planned!!!
ITS A BOY!!!!
We are super excited that we will be having another baby boy! That’s exactly what lil man wanted! I cant wait until February!!!
Here are more photos of our the kids at the beach...

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986.
