We are beyond thrilled to announce this little family is growing, with our newest addition expected to arrive early January 2018. Our sweet babe has been prayed for, and is already so, so loved. After an unfortunate miscarriage earlier this year - my first one, which was a total shock and left us completely heartbroken - we are extremely overjoyed to continue this journey with another happy & healthy blessing to love.
Turns out the second go round in pregnancy does not go nearly as smooth as the first. The morning sickness and fatigue are no joke while juggling freelance work & entertaining a very busy and very dependent almost-two-year-old. And indeed, the bump shows its face way sooner than the first time which has made this little secret of ours harder and harder to keep each week. I'm thankful time is moving slow, allowing me to soak up every single minute of growing this baby and giving Faire all the attention before life with a newborn starts over again.
So many thoughts are flooding our minds these days. All the 'whats' and 'ifs,' but surprisingly, I don't have any ounce of nerve bringing another baby into the world. Just a whole lot of anxiousness & excitement! Other than the gender predictions (I would be excited for either, seriously!) we are so anxious to see Faire in 'big sis' mode. She's already become a little mama taking care of her play babies, so I can only hope she will continue the same enthusiasm come January. Fingers tightly crossed for a fully-potty-trained, big-girl-bed-sleeping, enthusiastic big sis! :)
A huge thanks to our sweet friend Kaytee Lauren, for capturing yet another milestone in our ever-changing seasons. Stay tuned for more posts to come on all the maternity things. Thanks for following us on this journey!
