Baby Mac is a….


On Saturday, our parent’s threw us a little get together with friends and family to reveal the sex of Baby Mac. It was a lot of fun to have our families together and to see some of my close girlfriends.

This adorable cake, ordered from Oregon Dairy, is filled with either pink or blue layered icing. (if you follow me on instagram then you already know the results! )

We lucked out with the most beautiful day! 


Ryan and I had our anatomy scan on Friday. The sex of the baby was noted but only my Mom found out. For the next 32 hours she kept it a secret and I avoided her at all costs.

Ryan and I kept busy with continuing to clean out the spare room for the nursery and we also bought the crib on Saturday! (Thanks to my in-laws!)

Meanwhile my mom kept busy organizing the party, she had so much fun and it showed! Everything was so cute. Thanks Mom! 



The anticipation of not knowing was getting so hard for Ryan and I. But after seeing the image of Baby Mac squirming around during our ultrasound we both made guesses and were 90% SURE that we were going to be right. Maybe I believe in mother’s intuition after all?

Either way, everyone placed their guesses and we had fun with these cute lipstick and mustache sticks my friend Kay made for us. 


Ok! Finally ready to cut the cake! And Baby Mac is a………






Ryan and I were right! Isn’t weird how when we looked at the little guy during the ultrasound we just had a gut feeling we were looking at our SON? Wow! We’re going to have a little boy! This makes everything feel so much more real.

You bet we went out on Sunday and purchased a few adorable little baby boy clothes as well as started dreaming up the nursery. We are so excited and can’t wait to meet our little boy.

      Thank you! Thank you! We had a lot of fun and it was so nice to get everyone together. Most of my friends live a hour plus away and we haven’t all been together for over a year. The cake was so precious, all props to my mom. She was so excited about this party.

  • I am just so happy for you!!

    • kwalshmac

      Thank you, friend!

  • Ahh!! I love the video!! Did you wear blue on purpose?! haha I’m so happy for you and your sweet little BOY!!! What an exciting weekend!

    • kwalshmac

      Thank you! Yes I wore blue because I just had a “feeling”. And a new one, for the longest time I thought he was a boy. Even called him our girl name and everything. It was a very fun weekend.

  • CONGRATULATIONS! And this is by far the most fun way I have seen people reveal the sex!
    They do it a little strange here in Belgium (in my opinion), the parents find out the sex of the baby, but then don’t tell any one… I always thought you then want to share the news. I never understood why they want to keep it secret from others, surely it’s more of a surprise to the future parents… I don’t know, I don’t understand Belgium haha or babies 😉

      Thank you! I don’t get the parties when the parents already know and they are revealing it to everyone else. No one cares as much as the parents care 🙂 Either way, parties are fun and it’s nice to have the support of my family and close girl friends.

  • Pat (Mom)

    Dad and I can’t wait to hold our little grandson. We love him already. I really enjoyed watching him move around during the ultra sound.
    The party was a lot of fun and a great way to celebrate your pregnancy!

    • kwalshmac

      I”ll pass on the compliment to her, she had a blast. Thank you!

  • Oh my gosh, so cute!! I love the idea of gender reveal parties, and your mom did such a great job. Congratulations on the baby boy, and I also love that your wore blue without knowing!

    • kwalshmac

      I love any reason to have friends together and eat cake 🙂 It was such a fun day and now we are really bonding with our little baby boy and having fun shopping.
