Gender Reveal!! Baby Butler is a…

If there is one thing my family knows how to do extremely well, it’s throwing a shower/party!!

I *almost* didn’t have a gender reveal. Planning events like this does not come naturally to me and feels super stressful and overwhelming.  Everyone was dying to know Baby Butler’s gender after we found out at our last appointment, but the thought of putting together a party was majorly stressing me out. Of course, Mama came to the rescue! Seriously, my mom is mega talented when it comes to planning.  We decided it’d be easier to do it at her house because she has more room and better parking, so I contributed the food, but she did EVERYTHING else, and it was ADORABLE as usual! (She loves me extra now because I introduced her to Pinterest, right Mom?)

Everyone casted their vote!

Thankfully our friends & family were able to pull off coming over Sunday after church for the big reveal too (even on short notice), and it made it so special to have them there for the sweet moment. We are so thankful they all made the effort to come & enjoyed spending time with everybody.

Jon & his mom. Love this pic of them! (I can’t believe we forgot to take a pic with all the grandparents….oops!)

Loved reading everyone’s name suggestions!

My sister-in-law Ragan is super talented too and very artistic, so she decorated the balloon box. Isn’t it PRECIOUS? She did an awesome job, AND it entertained her so she wouldn’t keep stalking asking me about the gender.

Getting ready to let out the secret!

Team PINK!

Team BLUE!

And here we go!! (Hoping the balloons will pop out and we didn’t stuff it too full…)

Ahhhh, and Baby Butler #1 is a BOY!!!

Blessed. beyond. measure.
