Our Gender Reveal ... It Is A ...

This will be our last baby whether a girl or a boy.  All of us with the exception of Leah, our youngest, would prefer a boy but would love either.  Dylan demands a boy.  He sincerely wants a brother, no matter what, in his mind it is a boy.  Due to this being the last child we promised our oldest, Kayla, she could go along and watch when we found out the sex of the baby.

When I had Kayla she could have died if she had stayed in utero any longer due to Placenta abruption. The Dr. did an emergency c-section (birth story another time). Due to that any pregnancies past three are in risk. This being my 4th pregnancy my Dr. decided to send me to a hospital out of town that specialized in the pregnancy itself, for a special sonogram to check for Placenta accreta.

Kayla cannot attend this upcoming ultrasound because of the importance of finding out everything the specialist needs to look for. Therefore, we decided to have an elective ultrasound here in town. The cost was $55. but well worth not having to let down our little queen (as grandma calls her.) I bought 6 cans of pink and 6 cans of blue Silly String to take with us, the idea is the technician gives you back the 3 that match what you are having in a bag. The day of the ultrasound I arrived at Kayla's school to pick her up while hubby leaves work to meet us home. We decide taking two vehicles is the best option as we both go in different directions afterwards. We're waiting inside and I realize I forgot the Silly String, back out to the truck I go and to my disappointment I find it isn't there. I must have left it at home. The ultrasound technician finds what we are looking for and shoots out a photo. Well, quite a few photos. She then wrote the gender on a piece of paper and put it in an envelope and asked who wanted it. We let Kayla do the honors but told her she could not open it until Leah and Dylan were home from school and daddy home from work.

The kids and I were waiting, them not so patiently, when hubby pulled in. The Silly String had been in his truck, not mine, all along. Kayla went upstairs to open the envelope and brought down the cans in a bag with the lids off. In the backyard we passed all of the cans of Silly String around between us. As Kayla, Dylan and Leah opened fire with the Silly String everyone yelled BOY! It was a blast for us, the kids and a sight for the neighbors, I'm sure. Good thing they live far away and they can only see certain things because I like my privacy.

Bonnie Bear Plush Toy Review

We received a sample in exchange for our honest an unbiased review.

We had the opportunity to facilitate a review for Bonnie the Bear from Baby First Corporation.

When Bonnie the Bear arrived my grandson who is four recognized the doll from Baby First T.V. He was excited to help show Baby Brandi Lynn her new doll. Little Brandi Lynn loves Bonnie the Bear. She isn't much bigger than the doll right now, which is 12" high. We lay her next to it and she likes looking at the pattern on Bonnie the Bears dress. I think her favorite feature of the doll is the twirly thing on the top which she pulls and slobber on daily.

Bonnie the Bear is an adorable plush doll and just the right size for babies and toddlers. It is soft, cozy and snuggable. It free-stands. We usually have Bonnie standing on Brandi Lynn's changing table, the only time she gets knocked over is when the baby pulls her over.

Being that Brandi Lynn is only 5 months old I wanted to make sure that the doll was completely safe for her to play with- and it is. The doll is well made and stitched tightly. All the dolls parts are stitched on securely including that twirly thing on top. A big plus for Bonnie the Bear is that it's hand washable. We would recommend this doll to other babies. There isn't many stuffed animals I would allow Brandi Lynn to play with because they are so flimsy made, but Bonnie the Bear is quality made.

Bonnie the Bear is found on Amazon, your children can also find her on Baby First T.V. Together her and her best friend Mr Gramophone create colorful paintings from sounds that she hears. In every episode Mr Gramophone has 3 different sounds of common themes To play for Bonnie.Its up to Bonnie to recognize them and then Paint them.

This great plush doll will last a very long time, pass it from one child to the next. She would be great as a birthday gift!
