a little surprise that's getting bigger

I've had a little babe living in my belly now for about 19 weeks and it's finally really starting to show.
We are thrilled to see our family grow and for Minnie to be a big sister.
She L O V E S loves herself a baby and I'm hopeful that's still the case come July.

It seemed as though the minute we thought about having our first baby I was pregnant with Minnie.
This time, the process took us a little longer and there were months where I became so disheartened.
Looking back, I am grateful for the time we had to struggle (albeit only 4 or so months, which is nothing in comparison to many who are seeking to conceive).
It brought us closer together as a family and helped me appreciate my little Minnie that much more.

When I finally got the double line on my pregnancy test I wanted to shout it from the rooftops.
And then when I was sick for 17 weeks I had to remind myself how lucky I was and how much I'd wanted this.
It is a gift to be a mother and I am reminded of that daily.

Soon our little family of 3 will be a family of 4.
My cup runneth over.


  1. AHH!!!!! Congrats cute momma! I am so excited for you guys. You are the most incredible mom, your little ones are so lucky to have you! I hope you are finally feeling better. Congrats congrats!!!!

    1. Thank you Syd! I've been drooling over your California pictures on Instagram the last few days and dreaming I was there. I hope you had a great trip.

  2. You make me laugh... 3 months of trying??? Such a worry wart you are. I'm looking forward to meeting #2. It'll be so fun to get all the cousins together as they all get older. Disneyland here we come!!! ps. You're a beauty in the photo.

    1. Four months lady...and you know me, I'm the most impatient person in the world. I guess it was just good for me to not get something the minute I wanted it. And yes, I've been dreaming of Disneyland since we talked about it. Love you!
