Remembering Abbey’s Gender Reveal Party

Today is like Christmas – it is BABY REVEAL day for Baby Squishy. One of the more nerve-racking days in all of pregnancy, for me anyways. I’m praying for a healthy baby and I can’t even explain to you how anxious I am for 3:30pm. The Herron’s are set though! George has the recorder from Build-A-Bear, I’ve said a million prayers, all of our family and friends are thinking about us, my sweet Abbey Road is in good hands with her Papa Herron…now all we have to do is wait. 

I’m 19 weeks pregnant now and thought it would be fun to look back at my pregnancy blog post with Abbey at 19 weeks and read up {side note: we had Abbey’s reveal party on the date that George and I had our first date and got engaged}. While searching, I came across the blog post that George wrote about our reveal party. What an awesome day! I remember the anxiety at the ultrasound, I remember asking so many questions, I remember essentially holding my breath until I heard that everything was okay. I was choking back tears just reading the post, I could literally feel all the emotions flooding back all at once. George and I felt like the luckiest parents that day and we still feel that way now. I can’t tell you how many nights we sit down to relax after putting our princess to bed and we look at each other, smile and talk about how lucky we are to have our Abbey girl. I digress….

We are both nervous about today but for different reasons, George is genuinely nervous that our house will be overrun by women and I’m still just being mama-bear wanting to see my baby with all 10 toes, 10 fingers, strong heart beat, and healthy! George also wants to see a healthy baby and I’m happy that he is balancing out my fears and nerves. I keep telling him that he doesn’t need to worry though, I truly think Squishy is a boy! We shall see, Rick will be bringing the box Abbey and I painted full of either pink or blue balloons to our house for the big reveal at 6p. 

Thank you again to all of our family and friends for the support and love, we are half-way there people!
