It's a Girl!

In case you missed the big announcement via facebook, twitter and instagram...
Jason and I are SO excited to finally go public with the news that our Nugget is a sweet little baby
GIRL!

On Saturday, nearly 40 of our closest family and friends gathered to
share in our excitement and celebrate the big news!
My adorable bottle balloon weights, I don't think anyone cared or noticed...but I was pretty pumped about them.

Miss Bailey Mae.

John & Sara in their amazing homemade shirts!

 There was a lot of belly rubbing going on (I don't even notice it anymore).

Happy Puggle. 

Giant grill. 

Mama loves her baby.

My Beeb! <3

 Beeb is the professor of selfies.

daddy-to-be. (what a stud)

Finally, after what felt like an eternity, everyone had arrived and eaten and it was time to
reveal the gender of our little one!

TEAM BOY:

TEAM GIRL:

BOY or GIRL?!?!?!?
 I don't know why I started jumping...I was just SO excited.
It was such an incredible day, one that I will never forget. I am so overwhelmed by how much this little girl is loved, and she's not even born yet. I get teary eyed looking at these photos, and trust me, I've already looked at them
A LOT.

I also need to thank my buddy Sara Jayne for grabbing my camera and doing what she does best.
These photos are priceless and I am so grateful to have them.
