Take Your Pick!

Okay, enough black & whites…for now.  Let’s try to bring back some color ’round here shall we? It’s Springtime and it’s our birthday weekend (mine and the hubby’s!) after all.  So while we head out for some cheer and good fun-in-the-sun, anyone care to guess our little one’s gender?  Who’s team pink and who’s team blue? Let’s hear it!
