What a better way for us to find out the precious gender of our coming baby than to have it revealed through our favorite flakey pastry from Les Madeleines Bakery. Josh slipped the envelope that the kind nurse gave us at our doctors appointment to Romina at Les Madeleines for her to create something tasty for us.
We had decided previously that we didn’t want to just find out at the hospital in a room with people we didn’t know but instead to find out together, just the two of us, over my favorite meal, breakfast. So that’s exactly what we did. Josh brewed a some hot coffee (Charming Beard of course) and sitting at our breakfast table where the two of us enjoy our weekly Friday morning breakfasts, we slowly opened the white pastry box to find out if we would be having a boy or a girl.We unlatched the box and unlocked the big secret… with blueberry jam showing out of the center of the Kouing Aman pastry it was clear, we are having a boy!!
Thanks for sharing in this special news with us! And a special thanks to Romina at Les Madeleines for helping make our surprise so special! Hope you all have a lovely weekend!!
YAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!! Oh my gosh Becky, you are going to love having a boy. I’m so excited for you guys 🙂
I was so excited to share with you!!! Hopefully one day our two boys will meet!
I love the way you celebrated this special moment! And congratulations again; I am hoping I can have a shower for you at my new house, but we’ll have to see how soon I can get moved in (Mid March at the earliest!)
Well, I am crying because of the sweet way you guys got the news! As you know, boys are special to me since I had three.
Congrats, Becky! You are going to be the sweetest mother around. (And not just because your lucky boy will get to each tasty treats like Kouing Amans!)
I want to say something profound but all I keep thinking is “YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY!” – you know, like an ongoing chant in my head. Parenting is one wild ride but you are going to love it and you are going to be such an incredible Mama (Josh will make an amazing Daddy!). Congrats to one of the loveliest women I know!
What a fun way to find out! Couldn’t be more happy for you guys, congrats!!
