A Very Special Easter Egg Hunt & Surprise Reveal!

Gender reveal picture

At last, after what has probably been the longest and most drawn-out gender reveal, we can finally share our little video with you all!

We shot it over the Easter bank holiday weekend in what I had anticipated and hoped would be the perfect reveal after 8 long weeks of trying to come up with a concept (I know, I can’t believe it’s been that long either!).

I can’t remember a time when I have felt more frustrated or creatively stumped for ideas. I remember thinking shortly after we had our 20-week scan that Easter would be a lovely time to centre our reveal around, but I also remember back in early February just how ridiculously far away Easter was. Funnily enough, though, it’s taken me until now to create something I’m happy with.

Ironically it isn’t the original concept that I came up with for our little video. Shooting the original idea which involved all of our nieces and nephews, as well as Ella, didn’t quite go to plan. In fact, it was an epic fail as far as reveals go, and so I came up with this little video instead. I hope you enjoy it.

      Thank you lovely, the little one had so much fun with her cousins, and then her friend, and then on her own special little one. She really did get spoilt this Easter with the hunts πŸ™‚

      Thanks lovely! The little lady is pretty excited, although I think she would be whether it was a brother or a sister. That said, her nursery told us she has been going around telling everyone in her class this week that she is having a little brother so I guess she is more excited that we realised πŸ™‚

      I know, we’re feeling very lucky! Although I keep saying to people that we’d have been equally happy with another girl, there is something quite nice about having one of each and getting to experience that πŸ™‚

    Brilliant – love the video. NG (toddler) was very, very excited about the concept of having a little brother. And then, when NC came out, she said to me, ‘but he is a boy, Mummy’. So I’m not sure she had grasped the gender thing … but they love each other very much now! Thanks for hosting and happy to be here this morning! #MarvMondays

      Thanks lovely! Feeling very lucky and blessed, and all the rest of it to have one of each. I keep saying to people, I would have been more than happy with another girl, but I have to admit, the husband is very excited about having a boy πŸ™‚
