It's A...

...gender reveal party!  So, Bobby and I are 17 and 1/2 weeks through this 3rd--and likely final--pregnancy.  At first we thought since we have one of each healthy version of offspring, we would not find out this gender.  But after several reasons, we decided to peek and share the news.

We put together a last-minute gender reveal party.  Looking back, I almost wish we, too, had been surprised at the reveal, but we actually knew the gender and forced ourselves to keep it a secret for 48 hours until tonight's party.

Tonight we gathered together our family and closest friends for a "Pizza and Peeking Party".  Guests were encouraged to dress in either pink or blue to register their own prediction.  After pizza, we had a specifically designed cake.  Here are some highlights from the evening...check out the pictures to find out the gender for yourself!

I threw together an Easter/baby centerpiece.
There were only a few "votes" for girl.
The "votes" for boy doubled the girl ones.

Rob was allowed (with assistance) to cut the cake.
It's a boy!
We are thankful that Baby Morris #3 is healthy and now we can start using the pronoun "he" instead of "it".  Haha.

My Soccer Sweetie

After 3 seasons of tee-ball and coach-pitch baseball (2 springs and 1 fall) Rob broke Bobby's and my heart by announcing he did not want to play baseball this year.  SeriouslySad news.

Then one day Rob brought home a flyer informing us that Prince of Peace soccer registration had opened.  Rob caught wind of this (let's face it; it's not like Rob read it himself) and immediately started wanting to play soccer.  Wait...what??? Bobby was less than enthused.  He has never been a fan of this sport, but he did admit he was happy Rob wanted to do something

So, with no further ado, Rob is now a soccer player.  This past Thursday was Rob's first practice. 
There are 6 kids on the team: Rob, Ryan, Charlie, Abby, Olivia, and Keegan.  They all are either in Rob's class or in the other 4's at POP.  Bobby and I were secretly hoping he wouldn't like it and we could direct him back to the baseball diamond. Rob LOVED it.  I think it really helps that Rob already knows these kids and is surrounded by his peers.  He now says all the time "I can't wait until next Thursday!" That's his next practice.  Here are some shots from practice #1:

...and that's a wrap!  Hope you all are having a great weekend!
