Baby M Gender & Name Reveal

Thanksgiving was such a perfect day to celebrate our baby gender! Having both families in our home was so wonderful and we couldn’t have been more thankful.

For weeks I carried around the envelope that contained the gender of our baby and although all of my girlfriends said I’d peek inside, I held strong and knew I’d be happier finding out with those I love most around me! It was so worth the wait!

Matt and I chose to sport both pink and blue for the special occasion since we would be happy with either gender!

For the record, I predicted with 100% confidence that I am carrying a boy. No doubt about it. The intense meat cravings? I just knew we had lots of blue in our future. Matt on the other hand wavered back and forth a bit but decided on girl in the end.

We decided ahead of time that if Baby M was a girl the grandma’s would open the envelope containing her name, and if Baby M was a boy the grandpa’s would have the honors.

On to the cake cutting..

And of course we had the whole thing videotaped…

We’re having a sweet baby GIRL and we couldn’t be more excited {or shocked}! We’re naming her in memory of my mom, Caroline, who passed away when I was 5 years old, and Grace is Matt’s Great Grandmother’s name.

Caroline Grace Marcellino!
