Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Hope you all are enjoying time with your family today. We are in Ohio for the holiday!
There’s a funny story behind these pictures though -or our outfits anyway. The other night we went and picked up these balloons because we were going to shoot these early the next morning. We got home (and I was SO tired) and John said “hey make sure your blue dress fits!” So I tried to put it on and oh boy, it didn’t fit. Wouldn’t zip. Wasn’t cute. I looked atrocious! So we jumped in the car, got to the mall and split up to find something that would fit. John was literally snap chatting me blue dresses haha. I was like “John the mall is going to close, we will just let Fitz had the balloons!” Luckily, I saw this plaid skirt on a mannequin on display and was like “okay we are changing the theme – we will just do Christmas cards instead!” So yea, my blue balloon clash a little but we really wanted some photos with Fitz so it worked out!
I thought I’d go ahead and announce Baby Gemma’s gender today… we found out a while back when we did genetic testing so it is accurate, lol! But YES, it is a boy! And oh my gosh, we are really excited. Honestly, my whole life my mom has said “Emily, you know you will have a boy(s) right?” – mainly because I am so so so girlie and have no interest in anything boyish. Because she said that, I’ve always anticipated a boy. However, our doctor said early on he thought it was girl so for a while, I was only picturing myself with a girl! But, I’ve adjusted now and already have his nursery picked out. Cute boy stuff is really hard to find but I’ve already began scouring the internet hunting down the cute stuff!
I’m praying this little boy is just like John, lol! John’s the nicest, most selfless, precious person. I’d be the luckiest girl alive if I got two of him.. but if he turns out like me we are in for a wild ride! Ahh.. I think I was really funny but maybe a little sassy.
