It’s the new thing these days, apparently… a Gender Reveal Party! No, we didn’t know the gender before everyone else, we found out at the same time! Isn’t that fun?! How, you ask? Well, when we went to get our sonogram done last Thursday, we told the sonographer we did not want to know the gender [yet], but we wanted him to write it on the special piece of paper to put in the special envelope we had brought! After a fun, yet eye straining (I mean, come on, it’s hard for first time moms to see what the heck is on that screen!) sonogram, we had the exciting news tucked into my purse. I was tempted to hold it up to the sun to see the results, but I didn’t want to spoil the surprise. I LOVE surprises!
When we arrived to the party the next day, so many of our friends and family were there to celebrate and find out the gender with us. I had no idea my sweet friends would throw such a lovely party for Eric and me. By the end of the night, I was overflowing with gratitude and joy. I felt so special and loved on by all of our family and friends! Before the official reveal, that had a time of encouragement, wisdom, and blessing for Eric, me, and the baby. I will never forget it. I know this baby is going to be so anointed by the Lord to do many things for His glory! It’s so exciting!
So, PICTURES, of course!! First, the sonogram:
They decorated the party for both boys and girls. When everyone came in, they had to pick whether they thought we were having a boy or a girl and place that color of beads around their necks.
After some mingling, we all went outside for the time of blessing and, of course, the reveal! I was just a little excited!
The big reveal!! It’s a BOY!!! This picture is so priceless!
We are a tad excited, as you can tell!
Us with the official box and our boy balloons!
I have to say, finding out that we are having a boy has really put everything into perspective for us. On the drive home from the party, Eric said, ” I felt a responsibility before, but now that I know I have to raise a godly man, I feel a huge weight of responsibility.” I thought that was really sweet. He’s been so awesome already… he will come home telling me what different person he talked to that day about being a dad and good ways to teach and raise kids. I never would have thought he would have taken such a quick interest in being a dad, but I know he’s going to be an amazing one.
As for me, I am envisioning what the next… 18… no… what the rest of my life will look like. Someone posted on my Facebook after the party that said “Boys are noise with dirt on it.” If our boy is anything like Eric, I will need to hold loosely to my earthly possessions, because they are all up for grabs to be broken or mysteriously missing. I will need to be silly when I feel like being serious. I will need to play when I feel like I should be working. I will need to snuggle when I feel like being alone. I’m not the same person I was before I married Eric and I’m so grateful for that. I know I will not be the same with a Little Eric around, and that makes me pretty darn excited. I love dirty, noisy hugs and kisses.

This summer has already started out being so much fun! Last summer, Micah & I decided that for this summer we would write a business mission statement and keep it in mind when booking all of our weddings. Included in the statement is making our families a top priority, so with Micah & David’s baby, Reille, almost being SEVEN months old (ahh!!) and growing quickly, we are both glad that this summer has been the exact pace we were hoping for! It really makes us appreciate the clients we book even more… seriously, we have such sweet sweet SWEET brides and grooms!
My summer has been full of trying to figure out what to do with myself. LOL. I’m 20 weeks along now (HALFWAY!!) with Baby Wilkins, who I think will be ready for the Olympics in Summer 2032 with all of these flips going on in my belly. I have felt so great throughout this whole pregnancy and I’m so grateful for each day I’m able to do just about everything that I could do before the mom-bod. Honestly, I didn’t really know what to think about the growing belly at first. Anyone who’s been pregnant before understands the first couple months of pregnancy, and how you really don’t look pregnant – more like you’ve been feasting on rib-eyes every meal for a while now. But this month, it’s pretty obvious there is a baby in there!
Yes, I can do most everything I could before… except… there was the camp-out….
My hubby, Eric, and I decided to join our church Lifegroup for a campout in Mineral Wells last week! I was getting so pumped about it… I love camping! Until, it hit me. Honestly, I think it was God saving me from a really REALLY long night. He gave me this picture…
Imagine laying down to go to sleep under the beautiful stars with the locusts humming and a soft breeze blowing. The fire is slowly dying and your tummy is full of hot dogs and s’mores. You just got snug in your sleeping bag and said your last “I love you” to the hubby for the night. You have only been laying there for a couple of minutes until… BAM. You have to go potty. AND NOW. So, you quietly grab the flashlight and unzip the tent as slowly as you can, trying not to wake anyone. You tip-toe in the dark, dodging spider webs and yucky bugs to find a “safe place” to drop your drawers, praying snakes and chiggers don’t find their way to you. You finally make your way back to the tent, lay back down, get all situated, ALMOST fall asleep… until.. uh oh – you have to go again. Not only would that routine repeat a few times, but I’m talking about a dozen times, people. Yeah, no. That doesn’t sound pleasant at all does it?
I agree. Which is why we hung out with our friends until late and then drove home that night so I could have my nice little ceramic throne only a few feet away from my craziness. We had SUCH a blast though and I was till a bit bummed we couldn’t stay with our friends. We have such an awesome group of buddies! So, this week I get to try the camping experience again, but in a 5th wheel with my parents. Yay!! I’ve decided that there really is no fighting this new mom-bod. I just have to embrace the changes, and remember to keep a potty handy.
