Our big surprise…
Coming September 2015, we will be expanding by 1!
We are beyond excited to share our journey with you as we venture into baby-hood all over again!
We found out we were expecting on January 22 and as much as we wanted to wait to share the good news, we just couldn’t. Rylee had been praying for a new baby for Christmas and her birthday so we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to tell her on her birthday! Watch her surprise reaction..
Rylee’s big Surprise!
Having a miscarriage in our past, we were a little hesitant to share the news so quickly – but then again our family and friends support helped us heal from our lost baby. We trust in God’s plan and know he has a purpose for our family so we put our children and relationship in His hands.
I have been snapping pics since we found out because this baby (#3) may not have a completed baby book, memory journal and keepsake box. When I first became a mother 8 years ago I vowed to be one of those moms that keeps up with every thing for each child – but then reality happens and that just seems almost impossible. Rylee has an extremely detailed baby book, scrap book for the first 5 years of her life, memory journal, and keepsake box. Reese, well I’m still catching up on. That doesn’t make me a bad mother, that makes me human. For moms of more than one or two out there – pour out your words of wisdom to me now as we sail the seas of all things baby all over again!!
We have made it into what my doctor calls the “safe zone” – definitely easing our worry a bit. It may be too soon to start planning but those that know me – know that’s impossible!
Was this planned? we weren’t preventing pregnancy from happening and would feel blessed if God gave us another baby.
Eating habits? Starving, I crave mashed potatoes non stop!
What do you love about being pregnant? Volume of my hair! ha, call me vain but for a girl with thin hair, I’m loving this!
#1 advice for pregnant moms? lemon water soothes morning sickness
Maternity clothes? No way, l live in dresses
Stretch marks? None with the girls, praying for none with this baby
Name ideas? keeping the letter R tradition – but nothing yet
Sleep? Crazy dreams, lots of insomnia
What I miss? Zumba and Running (had to take a first trimester break)
Aversions? Avocado and mangos
Feeling? stuck between fat and pregnant
Shout out to? my husband for constantly reminding me that I’m not fat
Let all things baby begin!
