It's A......

I had the honor of attending a baby shower over the weekend and one of the highlights of the party was when the mother and father-to-be cut the baby shower cake.

The couple had decided to not find out the sex of the baby at the time of the ultra-sound, instead opting to find out at the shower. They asked the technician to write down the sex of the baby and put it into a sealed envelope. The mom-to-be then handed the envelope to friends planning the shower who arranged with a bakery to tint the inside of the cake (pink for a girl, blue for a boy). What a delight it was when the happy couple cut the cake to see blue-- and everyone was able to share in their excitement (while also allowing the couple plenty of time to plan ahead and paint the nursery).
