24 Week Update

My emotions have finally started to calm themselves! Thank the Lord! I know Ian is thankful too. Random tears at Chicfila and the grocery store were getting pretty annoying. We went back in for another ultrasound this week because Cove apparently didn’t want us to see his heart last time. It was totally fine with me since I knew I would get to see him again. We were happy to hear that all of his little valves were pumping and the heart was beating like a champ! Our ultrasound tech, Lindsey, is phenomenal. She was with us when we miscarried…

Bump Style | 22 Weeks

I know I still have 18 weeks to go, but I just cannot wait to meet this little babe. The kicks have gotten so much stronger over the past two weeks. Ian got to feel him for the first time too. It was the most amazing thing to experience together. Although I am not sick, the little man must have had a growth spurt, because I am so exhausted lately. Like Netflix binge watching, just enough energy to drive home from work and eat a bowl of cereal exhausted. Everyone tells me to soak it up and rest now before he…

Bump Style | 20 Weeks

We are halfway there! I cannot believe it. Sometimes I wake up and look at my little bump, and the whole thing feels so surreal. The nursery is started, little boy clothes are already stacking up in the closet, and the little movements keep getting stronger and stronger. Now that my appetites back, the bump is making more and more of an appearance. The only true cravings I have are for Chic-fil-a iced coffee and lemonade and Zaxby’s House Fried Salads. I guess that’s better than pickles, right? I am all about comfort. So stretchy pants and light weight tops is where…

A Boho Couple’s Baby Shower

Our best friends are having a baby this September! We could hardly wait to spoil them and love on them. The gender is a surprise to both them and everyone else, so we wanted to do something gender neutral with colors besides yellow and white. We decided to use a turquoise and blue scheme since boys and girls can wear blue.

Bump Style | 18 weeks

Being pregnant is so much fun. I’m not joking. And yes, I did have morning sickness. I am exhausted. And I often feel like my body has aches more than anything else. But being pregnant is so great because you are growing a tiny human inside of you! You get to feel little butterfly kicks at random times of the day, and if you have a husband like mine, you are spoiled and loved on all the time. The best part is, at the end of all of this, I get to meet and love a miracle named Cove. I mean…

It’s a….BOY!

Ian and I could  barely wait to find out what we were having this December. In fact, we found out the soonest possible date ever. I set up the appointment for the ultrasound and we both went in so excited with completely different guesses as to whether it would be he or she. My guess was she… and as soon as she put the handle down for the ultrasound I knew I was wrong. Our little boy was spread eagle so that we could see exactly what his sex was. It was so amazing. Ian had a permanent grin on…

Surprise! We’re having a baby!

We are so excited to share that we are expecting a baby this December!!! I have been so excited to announce! We went back to the place where we were married almost four years ago, The Foundry at Puritan Mill, to recreate some of our wedding photos with my little fourteen week bump and ultrasound pic. It was so special to be there again, and to think about bringing a tiny human into the world!

My story does not end in ashes | Our Miscarriage

This post was written nearly a month ago… I couldn’t bring myself to post it for quite a long time, but I felt compelled to share because someone somewhere needed to read this.  7 weeks ago, I held a positive pregnancy test in my shaking hands. The night before, I had dreamt for the first time about having a child. I can still remember looking down at the sweet perfection of life God had given me. Excitement overtook me, and I prepared a gift to give to Ian. He had no idea what was going on, but as soon as…
