Blueberry Swirl or Raspberry Swirl.....???

   Kevin and I are so excited!! We went in for an ultrasound this morning, got to see the baby doing a little jig, its lovely spine and brain + all four chambers of the heart: So cool! - AND most importantly, to find out the little Nugget's gender! Our Radiologist/Ultrasound Tech was named Molly, which we took immediately to mean we were in good hands (Kevin's older sister is Molly), and she was a really good sport... Because we have a surprise planned for ourselves and our parents!

  Tonight we are having parents over for dinner, but they don't know about the appointment this morning. We plan to reveal our baby's gender for dessert - Cheesecake dessert to be exact. Will it be blueberry swirl or raspberry swirl?? This thing is: WE don't even know yet! Molly the ultrasound tech, included a little 'photo' and a note that says 'Boy' or 'Girl' in a sealed envelope that we brought directly to Muddy Paws Cheesecake in St. Louis Park - they bake the BEST cheesecake - and since Kevin and I aren't the *biggest cake fans, we decided that cheesecake would be best (we even did cheesecake for our wedding! So it fits...).

  When we got over to Muddy Paws, we barely said "a cheesecake for McBride" - all prepped to re-explain how we there to pick up one of two possible flavors... - when the bakery gal says "Oh I've been WAITING for you!" We sent her off in back with our envelope, and she reappeared with a box, no flavor or info listed on it, tied with gender-neutral orange, curling ribbon (so it would be tamper-evident!)...

So right NOW - at 2:19 pm - we are still a few hours away from dinner, and a then a ways still from dessert time - and this box is just sitting in our downstairs fridge, waiting.... Oh! the anticipation!!!!!

Stay tuned.....

Fast-forward to about 6:45pm this evening!!!!!

It's official! The McBride's are having a little boy!! Hooray! We couldn't be MORE EXCITED!
