Greg, for your Birthday, you're getting a Baby...

Happy Monday!!  Yes, I know it's Monday, but it has been the best Monday I've had in a LONG time!  Greg turned 31 today, but we started celebrating on Friday.  Our 18 week ultrasound was scheduled for this morning so I knew he would be kind of sharing his day with me and Baby Smith, so I start "spoiling" him on Friday.  I got off work early on Friday and came home and cooked him a yummy southern meal.  I tried out a new Pinterest recipe for Crawfish Bread!  It was very good and super rich!  



After dinner, I treated Greg to a movie night!  We don't go to the movies often, so this was pretty special.  We went to see "Obama's America: 2016".  I'm not a very politically driven person (unlike my dear husband), but I do not care what side of the election you are on, this movie is a great documentary and worth going to see.  You might be like me and learn something new!

Starting on Friday morning, I gave Greg a small present each day.  First a Brita filtered water bottle, then a State Traditions Texas baseball cap, and finally a new wallet.  Sorry I forgot to take pictures of the presents and my wrapping jobs.  His big present was saved for his actual birthday today!

So, today, on Greg's actual birthday, we got up early for our BIG ultrasound!  We planned ahead of time to keep the gender a secret from ourselves until we celebrated at dinner that night.  Wow!  Was this the longest day of my life or what??!!  So, finally, after 7 grueling hours, we finally met up after work for the big reveal.  We headed to the mall and each picked out an outfit from Janie & Jack (me a girl outfit, and Greg a boy).  The nice ladies in the store took our envelope and wrapped the correct gender outfit without us knowing, and off to dinner we went!

Shopping for Coco!

At dinner, Greg did the honors since it was his birthday.  And guess what....It's....A...

BOY!!

Little Smith's outfit and the slip of paper from the ultrasound
The sweet lady at the store had even wrote us a nice note

So, after a few happy tears, lots of phone calls, and even more texts, we finally enjoyed our steak dinner :-)  Eating wasn't quite our priority tonight!  We even got around to celebrating Greg's birthday with a big slab of chocolate cake (sure made Mommy happy).


After dinner, we ran by my parents (Granna & Granddad) to get Greg's final birthday present from me (I was hiding it over there).  So, we finally topped his day off with a brand new shotgun, just in time for Texas Dove season!  Although, I'm not sure anything to could top off his little BOY!

Daddy with his new toy!


So, needless to say, this was a birthday neither of us will EVER forget!  We are beyond excited about our little man!  And I cannot wait to share more about him as February gets closer!


Finally, here are a few cute ones of Little Man!  Can you tell he's already got his Mama wrapped around his finger??  I can see a lot of Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails in our future!!

Already handsome like his Daddy!

And who could resist these baby legs??
