hey, baby!


Can you even believe it?

After months of hoping and dreaming for a house filled with little ones, our family will be meeting its newest member in the warmth of the springtime. We are all completely over the moon with excitement! Oh, my... a family of four!  It's so fun to even say that.

I am grateful and humbled with the pregnancy journey, now venturing into my second trimester with a healthy (kicking!) baby in tow.  I have slowly been regaining some of the lost energy from the first few weeks, and little bub has been craving lots of freezing cold ice chips, smoothies, milk, raw veggies, and the occasional doughnut.  My heart has exploded into a million pieces in the moments Sofia asks to "kiss the baby" and runs to my belly to give baby "big hugs".  I know in my soul that she will be the best big sister, her insistent need to help me with whatever I'm doing is proof enough in itself!

Documenting this journey is so special to us both, trust me when I say we have some amazing things planned  xo
