Motherhood Mondays: Would you throw a gender reveal party?

Celine and Jin, above, told their midwife to write their baby's gender on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope. Then their photographer friend Gabe came over to capture the moment that they discovered they were having...a girl! How adorable is that?!

Alex just wrote a New York Times article about the increasing popularity gender reveal parties, where expectant couples invite friends and family over to witness the moment of finding out the baby's gender. You could cut a cake to reveal either pink or blue cake inside, or you could open a wrapped present and pull out either pink or blue baby pajamas. Or here's another idea: Brooke's friend took her family to a baseball game and bought either blue or pink cotton candy!

Would you have a gender reveal party? Have you ever been to one? Do you secretly hope for either a boy or a girl? (I did!)

P.S. The day we discovered Toby's gender, and his teeny sonogram.
