I have had three sweet babies (one who isn’t such a baby anymore) in my life. Pregnancy with the babes has always been a toss up for me. With my first I dealt with sickness and my tummy looked like I swallowed a watermelon the wrong way…With #2 I had no sickness and my tummy was nice & round, BUT I ended up on bedrest for the final 3 months of the pregnancy… #3 brought no sickness, a round tummy, and no bedrest, BUT she came 3 weeks early. I feel like each baby needed a gender reveal as unique as the pregnancy that each one put my body through (haha!). I must have gotten better at these with each baby because the last one, I think, is the best pregnancy gender reveal that I have ever seen!
The BEST Pregnancy Gender Reveal… Glitter or Guns!
Since this might be our last child (no promises yet) we wanted to find out the gender in an explosive way… We are Southerners who enjoy making things go BOOM (legally!) so we took the “explosive” in that last sentence pretty literally.
We invited our friends and family to come over for fun, food, and fire-power 🙂 A good friend of ours bought Tannerite and Color Powder and he placed them behind a cardboard wall in an open field so the surprise wouldn’t be given away before the time was right.
We had everyone stand back at the entrance of the field with earplugs that we provided while my husband and his rifle made their way forward. He aimed his rifle, took the shot, and after finding the Tannerite behind the cardboard (which may have taken a few extra shots) he revealed that Baby #3 was a GIRL!!
My son and his friend were watching
patiently..haha.. I mean impatiently with their ears covered beside my sweet dad. They were so excited that they just couldn’t stand it!
After the reveal, everyone went back to our house for yummy snacks, drinks, and conversation. We served pink & blue cupcakes, pink & blue Hershey’s Kisses, and a couple of other baby-themed snacks to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.
