It’s a …. BOY OR GIRL??????

We didn’t plan any sort of ‘gender reveal’ like last time, but when we got the call from the Doctor I had them email Ginny the results because we were at the studio. So she put something in the box that represented the gender, in the most stereotypical way possible – blue for boy or pink for girl. Brian came over and we opened it up together.

And then naturally we filmed it …

We are very happy πŸ™‚

Have a fantastic weekend –

Love, Brian, Charlie, Emily and baby _____.

p.s. if you want to see how we reacted to finding out that Charlie was a boy go here.Β

Ahhhhh!
SO exciting! I, a random stranger and mom of two boys cried and jumped for joy right along with you two!
Congrats guys!

Awwww! I won’t spoil it for people but I have two kids 23 months apart w the same gender arrangement and it’s the sweetest (I think maybe all siblings are the sweetest?!). I was similarly “great either way!” before we found out and similarly thrilled once we knew. Congrats!

(And seriously, read Siblings Without Rivalry now so when you reread it later it’s already somewhat familiar. It’s the BEST.)

I second that. I’ve got a girl and a boy 21 months apart who are 2.5yrs and 8 months. I’m already talking to them differently. It’s a great book.

I love how shocked and excited and joyful you and Brian were in learning the sex.

In a few weeks I have an appointment to get an IUD because I decided I didn’t want any more kids (I have 1 boy and my boyfriend has 1 boy and 1 girl). So maybe I should be careful reading your blog for the next few weeks or I just might not keep the appointment…

Congrats you two!! So exciting and I gotta say exciting for us too!! We now get to see how you design for a girl too.

Yes… As a mom of a son, I was very touched by that thoughtful gesture. Your husband is going to help you raise a very honorable son.

YAHOOOOOO! Congratulations! I teared up seeing Brian’s reaction!!!

Would you mind me asking how many weeks you were able to find out the gender? It seems like it’s possible to find out so much earlier than ever before!

Cheers to you and your family!

You can get a blood test now at 9 1/2 weeks to find out 10 days later. So I guess 11 weeks. It wasn’t available when i was with Kaiser but it is now. It also does all the chromosomal stuff (in the clear for that, thank goodness). yeah, its nuts how early you can find out now. xx

So so very sweet! Quick question, if it isn’t too personal. How did you guys find out so early? If I remember right you’re due October 21st, so you’re about 12 weeks? Such a cute video, thanks for sharing your family and joy with us!!!

its a blood test at 9 1/2 weeks. Crazy. It wasn’t available yet with Charlie, but now it is. I think especially for women over 35 because it detects other bad stuff (in the clear on that). xx

That is so exciting!!!! Congrats! Love the video.

Yay yay yay! I teared up a little when seeing your happiness. I’m so happy for you guys. Girls and boys are so different (I have one boy and two girls) and it’s so fun to have both.
PS: And it was fun seeing more of Brian on your blog. I’m always curious about how the spouses of designers influence design decisions. Does your hubby get to help design, for example, your new baby girl’s nursery, or does he leave it all to the design genius of the family?
PPS: I hope this doesn’t sound weird, as I am a happily married woman, but I must point out that Brian is an extremely good-looking dude. Nicely done, Emily! πŸ™‚

HA. THat made his day. Yes, he is extremely good looking, you are right. And then add being a good on top of that – and its just ridiculous. Thank you. Meanwhile he doesn’t really get involved in much design stuff. He has opinions and shares them when he cares to. When he really doesn’t like something we get rid of it, and when he really loves something we keep it even if I don’t. That’s kinda the only rule, otherwise he honestly lets me do whatever i want and at this point does trust me – although it took a long time for him to fully trust me πŸ™‚

That was so neat, I cried. Having only an adult son, when Brian said ‘I’m going to call my Mom.’ I cried more. Congratulations to you both and Charlie who will be a big brother! And perhaps a close talker….adorable.

As a Mom of 2 boys…both college age, one of the sweetest parts was the very end when Brian says “I’m gonna call my Mom”. Congrats to you, but also to the G-parents, and how wonderful that Brian thought of her so quickly. πŸ™‚

Haha — I see someone else (Victoria) felt the same way!

I’ve never commented but this was just TOO GOOD. You and Brian’s pure excitement was just amazing. LOVE how excited you guys are. I know you would have been thrilled either way but this is JUST amazing. Absolutely over the moon excited for your sweet (and adorable!!!) family. Can’t wait to see the newest Henderson!!

I’m sorry – I know I seem like a stalker today but I can not stop watching this. You guys are the best. Everything, seriously. You saying “I’m shockingly happy” – Brian saying he’s going to go call his mom – his clapping, excitement, joy – you tossing that confetti out of the box as fast as humanly possible while Brian sits waiting kind of murmuring “I can’t take this” – then him saying “yessss, yessss” as you guys hugged – OH MY GOSH I love it all (can you tell I’ve watched it a few times?) – just the happiest and sweetest thing I’ve seen in ages.
