Gender Reveal - we are having a..


We found out the sex of our second child last week and we wanted to share the moment with you guys. We actually didn't find out the sex at the scan but instead asked him to write it down on a piece of paper and pop it in an envelope so we couldn't see.

I can't tell you how bad I wanted to open that envelope straight away! We'd previously picked out a boys outfit and a girls outfit and gave them both to a friend, we then gave her the envelope and told her to place whichever outfit fitted the gender in a box and seal it up.

We didn't realise quite how well she'd wrapped it though, it had so many layers it was a little like pass the parcel, which only added to the suspense I think ;)

The video below is of us finding out which outfit was in the box, I love the moment both Tom and I get a glimpse before we pull it out and the look on our faces.

Enjoy!

This is adorable Fritha. And it's actually exactly what we planned to do (all finding out together as we opened the package) but it backfired for us when our sonograper said its against the hospital policy to write it down and they can only do it verbally... so we heard at the scan and made do with surprising the children.
I'm so thrilled for you all. I would have been either way. Congratulations. x
(And I'm not going to say what it is so people have to watch the cute video!!!)
