An unforgettable 30th birthday

My sweet husband turned 30 on the 18th of August. We weren't high school sweethearts but he was my sweetheart a month after I graduated. We met when I was at the ripe age of 18 and he was about to turn 23. I remember thinking how old that sounded. Now that he's 30 and I'm right behind him....it doesn't seem so old after all.
This birthday was not only special because he is now another decade older but the gender of our baby was also revealed to him that evening. I waited 30 hours to tell him! It was hard but it was worth the wait. Kate and I took him out to lunch that afternoon at our favorite crepes restaurant and that evening we celebrated a quiet dinner out. It was so nice to just sit and talk and enjoy each others company. I made him wait the entire dinner before telling him if he was going to have a son or another daughter.

Our waitress walked up behind him and this is how I broke the news to him...





A BOY!

My man is going to have a son! He was shocked since he was sure it was another girl. After a shopping trip to Baby Gap after dinner and talking about him it all started to become more real! 

30 years and the best is yet to come!
Although, I'm not really sure it gets better than this...
