We lied.

About our anatomy scan, that is. No, we didn't lie about the results. I promise he's a boy! :) We lied about when our scan was to our family & most everyone. We didn't want to just call and tell my parents what we were having, so we decided a surprise reveal would be fun!

Also, now that it is passed and we know he is healthy, I can admit another reason I didn't want to tell everyone. I was extremely nervous, and it was easier to stay somewhat calm by not having lots of people knowing & questioning me.

Now to the details. My parents' birthdays were last week, so on Friday we told them we were bringing over their gift. We used the largest box we could find and filled it with 'It's a boy' & blue balloons so when they opened the "gift" all the balloons floated out. They had no suspicions that we were lying about the date of the scan, so they were happily surprised. Sadly, I have no photos of their shock, because I didn't want to make them question why I was getting out a camera. Since I have no photos of their reaction, I'll leave you with some photos of little man.
