Postanidup on Sun Jul 03, 2016 10:35 am

Our middle child, who is turning 27, had to stay with us for two weeks a while ago, since she had to locum at the practice of one of their friends ( she is an attorney).

We went out for breakfast the Saturday morning, when she and her husband gave us a small gift. We protested against accepting it, since just having her with us for a time was a lovely gift already. But they insisted, and my husband then told me to open the gift.

I opened the bag to find a photo and a box with two pacifiers with a note:

"Dearest Grandpa and grandma, Please keep this for me for when I am coming to visit. As we got to know Mom and Dad they might just forget to bring mine with, See you in December!
Lots of Love, Baby Jansen van Vuuren"

We were in tears!!

The photo was the first sonar scan and one could barely make out the little one!

We were sworn to secrecy, since they had planned a special way to tell the other siblings about the baby, as well as the friends. So grandpa and I worked very hard when we met with people not to spill the beans.

They now have a gender revealing party planned for the weekend of the 15th of July. We were all instructed to dress in the color we thing the gender may be. She plans on having a cake with two small baby shoes on it. One blue and one pink. The cake itself when it is cut, will reveal to us the gender.... being either a blue or pink cake!

It is heartwarming to see how she already plans her life around this little one....

Every event planned to the finest little detail!

I think it is going to be a boy..... and will be wearing blue!

Thank you.... but it is very hard when they have to go back home and they cry to stay with you.
I know the tears dry up quick enough, but my heart gets broken every time!
Happened again this afternoon when we had to drop her off again.

The gender is known:

We had a wonderful evening with the children. They invited all the parents, the siblings and a few friends, and planned a beautiful event.

We were treated on lovely dinner and thereafter they released balloons filled with helium from a container. We were all anxiously looking at all the balloons coming out, only to realize they were all white! The expecting parents were teasing us! Just as if the suspense in knowing was not enough already!

We were all requested to wear either pink or blue. I had this feeling that it is going to be a boy right from the moment we were told about the baby, but yesterday my husband said, he is getting the feeling it is going to be a little girl.

So after the two expecting parents played this prank, they said there is a cake and the revealing will now be done, we have to move inside for that. So they very formally together cut the cake...

We were all literally holding our breath: and then I saw the inside! As blue as the sky!!!!

I was overwhelmed with joy..... we are going to have a boy baby!!!!
We are also blessed so far to know that the little one is healthy and growing into a perfect little human being!

I am so thankful!
