The Big Reveal

I’ve been meaning to do a gender reveal post, but since the hubs is out of town I had to make do and use photos from last year. At least it’s yellow right? I don’t know who decided yellow was a gender neutral color, but I guess it worked out for me.
I don’t really think it’s a big reveal since you can only have a boy or a girl, but here goes. And the winner is… a girl! I wanted a girl but John wanted a boy, lol. I think all dads want boys. When I told him that we were having a girl he said, “We have to try again.” I was like, let’s get through this one first, ok? Then he talked to all his friends with daughters and now he wants another girl, lol. I grew up with an older brother and honestly we’re not that close. John has a brother and they’re best friends. They help each other out, joke and talk about everything and remain close even though they don’t live in the same state. I want that for my daughters (fingers crossed) so that they can not only be sisters but also best friends when John and I are no longer on this earth. How many siblings do you have? Are you close with them?
Dress: H&M (old), similar here and here
Shoes: Adidas

  5. Yay! Congrats on the reveal! My first was a girl too! I always thought I wanted nothing but girls but then my second was a boy and he just loves me so deeply! Little girls are so much fun! Mine are 22 months apart and they’ve just hit the fighting over everything stage so we’re working on that! You have so many exciting moments ahead of you and I can’t wait to see posts with you and your princess!

    1. Ohhh that’s so nice! (Not the fighting over everything part…) I mean I don’t really care if I have a boy next, but for the sake of this first one, I want her to have a sister and best friend. I’ll take whatever God gives me!

    Hi dear!

    Congratulations on a baby girl dear! It’s so funny to telling your man the gender of your baby. Their answers are really UNEXPECTABLE lol. So so happy for you!

  7. It’s a GIRL! Many congratulations to you and your hubby! I think every woman wants a girl! I know I do! I have this fear that I’ll keep trying and end up with all boys. lol. I am very close with my sister, but not close with my brother. Me and my sister are much closer in age!


    1. Thank you, Eliza! It’s a great neutral dress for a gender reveal. πŸ™‚ I always thought I was going to have a boy since I’m surrounded by them (brother, BIL, 2 stray cats that are boys) but I’m happy to be having a girl. πŸ™‚

  8. Congrats on your baby girl! It’s so nice to have a baby girl. I have two teenage boys so I always resent the fact that there is no one can use my closet. But I am so happy with my boys. I can’t believe this cute dress is from H&M. It’s so simple yet elegant on you.



  9. Hey Sweetie:)

  10. How awesome! Congrats on the baby girl! I do have one sibling, an older sister. Her and i are four years apart but i consider her my best friends. Congrats again girl

  11. Congrats on the big news!!! How lovely is that you have a baby girl coming your way!!! To be honest, if I have to choose between girl or boy, I would totally choose girl too. So she can have all my jewelleries, bags and hopefully can fit into my clothes too. But this dream is super far away for me. lol

    xx, Jessie

  12. OMG this is super exciting. Congratulations. I don’t have children yet but I really want a girl. My sisters and I have the best relationship….we’ve fought but as we get older we are more friends then sisters. So happy for you

    1. Aren’t having sisters the best? I know you guys probably fought a lot when you were younger (all siblings do) but you’re all friends now so it’s probably really nice to have that!

  13. Congratulations on your baby girl!! I have a boy and a girl and I can say that I’m in love and happy with both of them. I’m the only child growing up and I never really learned what it is like to have a sibling so I have become pretty independent. But I think the first born girl will be very nurturing and taking care of you and any future siblings she may have πŸ™‚

  14. Congratulations on your baby girl!!!
    There will be so much dressing her up and girls tend to be closer to the family usually. Actually at the end of it all, a happy healthy baby is all that matters!
    Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy!

  15. Aww congrats on your baby girl honey!!! We both actually originally wanted a girl but we were happy with either when it came down to the actual day of finding out!! I’m so excited for you honey and you guys will just have to give baby girl a brother in the future!!! πŸ˜‰

    Helen xx

    1. Yeah, we said we just want a healthy baby! But I was secretly happy it was a girl. πŸ™‚ I’m hoping for a baby sister in the future, but we’ll take whatever God give us!

  16. awww!! Congratulations!! a girl!!
    I am so happy for you!!
    This is such an exiting moment for you and hubs!
    I have both as younger sister and a younger brother and I am close with them both!
    I am so happy that I can concider my siblings as my friends as well.
    We help each other through the good and the bad stages of life
    I hope your children will have the same kind og relationship.


  17. Awww congratulations mama to be! How exciting that you are having a girl. I totally understand being Asian and a dad you want a boy first and obviously the pressure is off too if you have a boy first, but I personally think having a girl first is the best (this is coming from someone who had a boy first). First-born girls will take care of their siblings and be nurturing. I grew up with two sisters (I am the middle child) and while we fought all the time growing up, we love each other and are the best of friends. I have three kids myself (boy, girl, girl) and it’s nice to see the girls close and act as friends although they fight a lot too. Either way you are blessed to be having a baby and so exciting to have a girl. Girls are sweet and precious and you will melt when you meet her. xoxo, Christine

    1. I really wanted a sister or a younger sibling so I could take care of them. You’re so lucky that you had sisters. I’m sure you fought a lot (I’ve seen some intense sister fights) but I bet you’re so close now. I hope I get to have another girl!
