Our very special delivery!
Michael recently celebrated his five-month birthday and we celebrated by finally getting his birth announcements in the mail! A few months later than I had hoped, but, that’s how things are these days. As I was preparing to send out Baby Michael’s birth announcements, I did some research and stumbled across something great: you can get a welcome note for your new child from the President and First Lady! Send them an announcement or submit the information online.
It’s super quick and easy to do and look what came in the mail the other day:
A welcome note for Michael from President and Mrs. Obama
We also sent an announcement to Mickey and Minnie Mouse. (We haven’t received anything back yet!) If you’re Catholic, you can send an announcement to the Pope for a blessing. Find all of the details on Parents.com.
And since I’m people who knows people, Mayor Ed Murray, the mayor of Seattle, proclaimed Michael’s birthday as a “day” in the city of Seattle. This proclamation is amazing:
Michael Carl Szerwo Day in the City of Seattle
I worked for the Seattle City Council when Brandon and I got married. The Council members proclaimed our wedding day a “day” in the city of Seattle too! Mark your calendar to celebrate Michael Szerwo Day this year: only 6.5 months to go and at the speed time is flying by these days, it’ll be here before we know it!
It’s a boy!
It was a fun weekend on Megan’s Island: we found out Baby Mo’s sex! We had some of our closest friends and family over for a bumble bee-themed reveal.
What will Mo bee?
We had our 20-week ultrasound earlier this week and we had the tech write down the baby’s sex and seal it in an envelope. Brandon then took the envelope directly to the bakery, so neither of us were tempted to open it.
Here we are with the envelope. No peeking!
It’s been a long couple of days since the ultrasound, but it was worth the wait.
Our local QFC was in the know and baked a bumble bee chocolate cake, with the inside frosting the color the color of the baby’s sex.
The cake knows! Soon we would know too!
We gathered everyone, cut the cake, and saw the BLUE frosting!
Such excitement! BLUE frosting!
BLUE frosting! It’s a BOY!
I’ll start working on a party-specific post now, so good bye for now from baby Michael!
Hello from Michael!
This Wine Wednesday I have a secret that I must confess: I miss wine. I haven’t had booze of any sort this year and won’t for awhile. Why you ask? Well, we’ve got an announcement for you…
Brandon is still drinking and I can still read tasting notes and attend winery release parties, even if I don’t drink anything, so this isn’t farewell for too long. More wine news and information coming soon!
