Sugar and Spice, and All That's Nice

And then there was SHE!

Early on in my pregnancy I told Tim he could decide when (or if) we'd find out the gender of our little one on the way before they were born, so when the ultrasound tech asked if we wanted to know what we were having at a recent appointment my heart skipped a beat when Tim said, "yes."

At 24 weeks along, it's surreal to know we're over halfway there until meeting our daughter. We were tickled to learn she's measuring in the 80th percentile for limb length and I can't imagine a day where feeling her little kicks and thumps will ever get old. Speaking of which, she's already earned her first nickname, Thumper.

We revealed our sweet news with family in a few different ways this past weekend, from mailing cards to popping a gender reveal balloon for our littlest of nieces and nephews. Reactions have ranged from excitement to jokes that "the pressure" is still on for Brandon to carry on the Vidra name. If you'd like to see, I posted a few video clips from sharing the good news with family over on our Instagram stories today!

The photo in today's post was captured by Ali Williamson, who we are so grateful to call our friend and the secret keeper for surprises like these :)
