It’s officially as of August 13th or sometime around that date we will be the happy parents to BOYS! That a right we are having another boy and we are so excited! Sam always “knew” it was a boy but I wasn’t so convinced. I just felt like it was a girl I don’t know why but I was sure it was a girl, that is until yesterday. I went for my first ultrasound and sure enough the second the ultrasound tool touched my belly there he was, legs spread eager to let me in on his little secret. And I must say I was a little relieved, of course a happy healthy baby is all I want BUT I already have one boy and I know exactly how to deal with him…well most of the time at least ?. So while every baby is different I will at least be swimming in my normal waters.
Of course after I found out I battled with an announcement. I kept debating with myself, should I go with an announcement or just put up the ultrasound, should I make a big deal or just go low-key? With all the wedding stuff just under my belt I really am feeling a more low-key vibe lately so I wasn’t convinced I was going to even do anything. Then I called my mom to tell her the good news! After we started planning everything from middle names to nursery paint colors she asked if I would be doing an announcement. I told her I wasn’t sure and she put it perfectly. “You have to its fun just have fun with it!” So I did! I went on Pinterest for some idea and I found one I thought so ADORABLE. It also worked out perfectly with Gunnar’s school Valentine’s Day party, I had planned to make treats for the kids since sadly I couldn’t leave work for it. In the end it all worked out and I killed two birds with one stone!
- 1 bag White Chocolate Chips
- 1 pack of Vanilla Cake Batter Oreos
- Pink and Blue food coloring ( I used neon)
Start by emptying your bag of white chocolate chips into a pot. Turn on low or medium heat and constantly check contents stirring frequently till it is melted. Now for this one I only made a few blue Oreos for the reveal and the rest I made for pink for his Valentine’s Party so once the chocolate melted I look about half a cup out and added two drop of neon blue dye while stirring quickly until the color was even. I let the melted chocolate cool for about a minute then I started dipping my Oreos in. Once I was happy with how covered they were I added some sprinkles and left them on a piece of aluminum foil to cool and harden. The only thing I did different with the pink icing was add three drops of neon pink dye instead of two but everything else was the same!!!
