Place Your Bets! Can you predict the sex of our baby?

Surprise Envelope

Surprise Envelope

Two days and counting…we have the envelope, signed and sealed by our doctor, that has been hanging on our picture wall for the past several months that contains some very important information: the sex of our baby!

We weighed the options of finding out verses waiting and settled on a solution that fits our style and values as a family. Brian and I knew we didn’t want to find out at the hospital during the anatomy scan and we also wanted to spend a little time planning and preparing, given what a tough transition this has been these past several months moving away from Denver to New Orleans. And we thought Christmas would be a perfect time to mark such an important and pivotal stage in our lives as a married couple and in our new role as soon to be parents.

So, we thought it would be fun to take a poll to see what you all think: are we having a girl or a boy? Place your bets in the poll below:

BONUS! Help us come up with names for our precious little one. Place any suggestions you have in the comments below!

  6. I will love whatever name he/she has but I do love Brian’s middle name, James. I guess that just nixed it!

  7. I am HOPING it’s a boy because the girls want a baby brother and they’re not getting one from me, but I have felt like it’s a girl all along. Not sure why.

  8. Scarlett thinks the baby is a boy, because she likes boys. She wants you to name him Max.

  10. I am not sure my comment posted. I am hoping you have a boy because the girls want a little brother and they won’t get one from me! But for some reason I have felt you are having a girl the whole time. Prove me wrong please!
