Yes, that is what I said, BUT we are not saying! Ha ha !!!! No really, we didn't want to know, but accidentally found out yesterday. By no fault of her own, my mom sent us a gift for the baby that we were expecting.....and expecting NOT to open it, but unfortunately Nordstroms printed the baby's name on the shipping label. See, we had asked if my mom would send us a gender specific baby book to take the hospital. Even funnier (after 24 hours of lettting this new info sink in) is she actually got us a photo album and not a baby book! Well, we are guessing she must have had it personalized (we haven't opened it....want to keep SOMETHING a surprise!) and that led to the baby's name being on the shipping label. Yah, doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Any way, we were upset and happy all at the same time. Everything goes through God first so we know that for some reason this is something He wanted us to know. We went 33.5 weeks without knowing. We did not know the gender of Ryan and Hunter until D-Day, so in a way, this is neat. It's nice to say the name and nice to give the baby more of an identity. Maybe I'm in love even a little bit more. :) We did take a risk when deciding to let a few people know without us knowing. So now the total tally of people in the baby gender knowing party is 5....8 including me, Sean, and Hunter (that Hunter better not tell!)! My mom and dad, my friend and her hubby and another good friend of mine who is also pregnant and due around the same time. We have decided not to tell anyone else because Sean's parents still don't want to know. I almost told her any way because if I'm gonna know, she can't not know! But then I realized that that's a little 3-year-oldish! lol :) Sean is super excited that he will be able to announce that to them, as am I! And to announce to the rest of our loved ones, except the ones above who are sworn to secrecy! :) THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THIS NEW LITTLE BLESSING THAT GOD IS ALLOWING US TO HAVE AND A HEALTHY MAMA AND BABY!
