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!
Little Britches Bakery
Consider this a shameless plug for an excellent gift for a new Mom or Mom-to-be on the market today: Little Britches Bakery. In addition to being a government communicator and a super blogger, I have a small business where I make gifts for new parents and parents-to-be.
Little Britches Bakery isn’t a real bakery. Instead, we (the royal “we”) make inedible gifts that look like baked goods. They’re too sweet to eat though. (Great slogan, right?) I have a “menu” of standard and custom diaper cakes and onesie cupcakes. I’ve even been written up in the Mercer Island Reporter after Price George was born.
Here’s my Little Britches Bakery show set up
My diaper cakes are made of size three Huggies diapers. I have some generic-themed designs (floral, sports, rubber duck, etc) and can customize cakes completely. They make great centerpieces at baby showers! Here are some good examples of the variety of cakes that I can and have made.
Little Britches Bakery Diaper Cakes… made by me!
My onesie cupcakes are made out of 3-6 month sized baby onesies and washcloths. I make them to order and can make them gender-specific or gender-neutral and have split packs for twins!
