:: it's a.... ::

I'm pretty proud of my ability to be patient this week. I'm not the most patient person when it comes to waiting for something special, but this week after our baby's anatomy scan, I carried an envelope holding some pretty exciting news straight off to my sister and managed to wait four days until this afternoon :o)

We decided to find out if we're having a boy or girl by being with family and friends and cutting into a cake that would have a surprise filling - blue or pink. My sister, Beth, is an amazing baker, and she said she had a great cake recipe for the job. And it was! We cut the cake this afternoon and found this colour inside...

...which means we have a little boy coming!! Quite exciting, to say the least! Eti has had his hopes fulfilled of his own little boy to come, and as far as we know it this little guy will be the first Lacombe boy in this generation to join the host of little girls! (as well as his new cousin Toby on the other side!).

So now blue has a high chance of overtaking the pinks in the baby clothes drawer and we can anticipate a great continuation of his growth inside until he's ready to join us in just under 5 months!


  1. WOOHOO! Little boys are so scrummy! Congrats xxx

  2. Awww just got goosebumps! LOVELY! Congrats Remaliah!

  3. I loved the way you did this - so cool! Good luck keeping the name under wraps - I let the cat out of the bag a couple of weeks before he was born to my dad but he didn't let on that I had till after :-)
