Yes, my oldest daughter is expecting our first Grandchild in November, and I couldn't be more excited! I haven't posted about it until now, because I had to let it all sink in first, and make sure that everything was going well before I felt comfortable writing about it. But she has made it well into her second trimester and we are go, go, go for getting ready for "Baby ?".
That is where the connection with the title of this post comes into play. Apparently it is very popular now to have more than just a baby shower when you are having a baby. So we are planning pre-baby party #1 which is called the Baby Reveal Party. Now, I can just assume that I was the only person on the planet who didn't know about this trend, or I can explain it just in case there are some old timers out there reading my blog and wondering the same thing I was wondering the first time I heard my daughter talking about the "Big Reveal".
At first I was a bit concerned because I was worried that there was something more than just your standard average baby in there and it required some kind of preparation before she could tell us some horrid news, but after letting her laugh at me for a few minutes, she gave me the scoop.
It's actually a Baby Gender Reveal Party and the whole concept is quite beautiful. This is how it works. On the day of the gender determining sonogram, the doctor places the results in a sealed envelope and gives the envelope to the trusted friend or family member of the mother's choice and only that person can open it to see if the baby is a boy or a girl. Then later that evening or within a few days, at the party that was planned by the trusted envelope holder, a big "Reveal" is made by some grand and creative gesture. Some people stuff helium balloons in a huge box and when its opened either pink or blue balloons spill towards the sky,
or...the hostess of the party presents a cake that is filled with either pink or blue filling, and when the mother and father cut the cake it's a .........
So needless to say I am sooo.. excited! We are going to have a cake, but our big reveal is going to be done with cupcakes that Kathleen and Sammy will feed each other to see what color filling will end up on their face. It should be lots of fun.

Whoever guesses correctly will be given a surprise gift. This is actually just an excuse for me to start working on my recipes because I absolutely can't wait to start making and canning homemade organic baby food.
I made homemade baby food for my children, and now with all of my Grandma's Kitchen Super Powers I can make it even better. I can't wait to go to the Farmers Market and grind up the freshest prettiest most beautiful fruits and veggies. I eventually might even consider buying a "Baby Bullet".
