Brooklyn had her last day of Fall semester at WMS and they had their holiday party and an early release day.
They did a special circle time with their adorable matching shirts and reindeer hats and sang Jingle Bells for all of the parents then had juice boxes and decorated sugar cookies.
icing buffet cookie decorating they all (surprisingly) sat back in a circle for the book gift exchange and each took turns going to the tree and picking a gift to unwrap and thanking whichever classmate gave the gift. It was really sweet to see them all so excited about their books and be so kind and thankful!
Then we went home for lunch and a nap and took Brooklyn to my parents so that Daniel and I could go to our anatomy sonogram for baby #2!
We got to see arms legs, fingers, toes, kidneys, lungs and a heart - it's so much easier to identify major body parts now that we've had a few of these appointments under our belts. I still have no clue how sonographers work all that magic and measuring but I'm sure thankful they know what they are doing. L&D aside, this Dr. visit is always my most anxious one - making sure everything is there and looking good and growing is no small task.
The fun part about this appointment was that we got to find out gender if we wanted to - which we totally did! I know some people like to wait and be "surprised" but to me you're surprised either way -at 18 weeks or when it pops out on its birthday. I prefer to be surprised at 18 weeks when I still have 22 weeks to prep for names, bedding, and shop lol!
Here's the video we took of how we told Brooklyn and then we used the video to send to our families to let them know the gender too! Brooklyn could care less what we were having - she was over the MOON about those balloons!
