Gender Reveal | Baby Ramirez 2017

I decided to document our pregnancy as a way to get all my feelings and emotions out and to later look and remember this beautiful time in our lives while noticing the differences and similarities with our first pregnancy. I hope you enjoy if you decide to follow along on this life changing journey.

After having a Gender Reveal for our first pregnancy (see here), there was no way I couldn't do one for this little babe as well. I know the norm is typically going all out for your first and coasting through with any other pregnancies but it just didn't sit right with me and I want this baby to see that we love it just as much as we love Sophia regardless of what order they were born in.

However it was tough deciding how exactly we wanted to do the reveal this time around. If you remember with Sophia, I had it planned for years before we even were pregnant. We played with different ideas such as throwing a softball since I played on a softball league during my first trimester or somehow incorporating it with basketball since that is Anthony's favorite sport to play. We even thought of doing it the exact same way of Sophia's Gender Reveal but decided against that as we wanted it to be different.

The ideas we ultimately went back and forth with were with silly string or smoke bombs. Smoke bombs would have been perfect, in our opinion, if we were going to have the party closer to Fourth of July. Also, I let Anthony take the lead on this reveal since he didn't have any say so in the first and he had a vision in his mind of having everyone included by spraying the silly string with us to reveal whether Baby Ramirez 2017 was a he or she. I'll stop my rambling now and share the amazing moment of finding out.

Sophia's Carnival Birthday Party

Hey guys! Sophia is now fifteen months old and I am barely getting around to sharing her carnival themed first birthday party. Typically, you hear parents are so stressed out during the planning stages and during the actual party and I must say I don't remember being stressed at all during the party. I enjoyed every second of it as my vision for Sophia's first party came to life. Some may say we went over board but can you really for a little princess? Haha. I'm sure you can but it was so worth it to us to have this beautiful memory of our babygirl turning one. If your interested, I will be sharing all the sources at the end of the post.

If you have been following along here long then you know I do monthly updates on Sophia (which I need to get one together for her fifteen month update), and I wanted to display those photos at her party to take everyone down memory lane of how much our sweet girl has grown in just a year.

The design of this cake was the starting point for my vision and I am so glad our cake lady brought it to life so perfectly (check the end of the post for her contact info).

Gender Reveal | Baby Ramirez 2016

I decided to document our pregnancy as a way to get all my feelings and emotions out and to later look and remember this beautiful time in our lives. I hope you enjoy if you decide to follow along on this life changing journey.

Before we were even pregnant, I always knew I wanted to have a gender reveal party and I knew exactly how I wanted the reveal to happen. I think I planned it about 2 or 3 years ago? I told my friend that I would love if she'd throw it all those years ago and she did an amazing job in putting together my vision for us. Thank you, Jess!

Be warned that this post is very picture heavy as words aren't enough to share or describe this beautiful moment in our lives.

At this point, I read all the names everyone suggested for either a boy or a girl. Some were ridiculous but very funny.

Getting ready for the reveal!

and baby Ramirez is a GIRL!!

I think it is hilarious how I am able to read every thought running through Anthony's mind in each of these pictures. How would you caption them?

So thankful for our friends opening their home for us and putting everything together. We are truly blessed.

Here I decided to tell a little narrative from when I was like 8 or 9; my cousin Ericia kicked me in my private parts and I yelled at her "now I can't have babies!!" Obviously her kick way back than didn't affect me like I thought!

I am so glad our friend Nick captured these moments for us, we will truly cherish it for the rest of our lives and can share it with our babygirl.
