If you guessed a boy, then you are correct! We are so excited that Baby Marquez is a little boy!

We woke up in Olympia, with sweet holiday party memories from the night before, and then made the long trip north to Stanwood for the baby shower at Kate's house. But not without stopping at Whole Foods in Tacoma for breakfast, coffee, and football watching. We also bought some helium balloons and put the gender on a piece of paper in one of the balloons.

It was a wonderful, small shower. My closest friends were in attendance - Kate, Liz, Rithy, and Lacey, and then my Aunt Debbie showed up and Tim's Aunt Suzanne and Uncle Randy also came over. It was a great group and we played one little old wives tale game before popping balloons to reveal that it's a boy, then ate Qboda mexican food and opened gifts. I am a lucky girl and this baby is so blessed already. We are so excited and so excited to tell everyone that he's a boy. Tim is already ready to take him to all the baseball games!
