Two months ago I announced on here that The Wife and I were expecting our second child.  I even shared the cutest (yeah, I am biased) video of my son finding out:

Well we found out on Friday that this one will be a daughter! Beyond the nerves of dealing with a healthy pregnancy, I wasn’t all that nervous when it came to the gender of the baby…that was until I found out it was a girl.  I am not nervous about raising a daughter, however, I am very nervous on dealing with the differences between the sexes.  My guess is that the feeling is nothing more than the fear of change or something different.

Considering the shit The Wife and I have been through we decided to celebrate a bit with a “Gender Reveal Party.”

Our Gender Reveal Party

The Wife and I had the sonogram tech text our baker the sex.  The baker (a family friend) showed up with 45 cupcakes that looked all the same on the outside (pink and blue frosting) however when you bit into it you found pink frosting.  The party started as a small family thing that turned into 40+ people in my backyard.  I know the idea of a gender reveal party sounds terrible, but I have to tell you it was really fun sharing finding out with people we genuinely care about.  It didn’t hurt that we had enough beer and burgers on the grill to kill an army.

The Wife is already talking shopping.  My gut tells me this child is going to be a lot more expensive than my first!
