We’re Having a Baby!

I am very excited to share some major personal news with you this morning…

We’re expecting a baby! He or she will be arriving this winter in December. I am so looking forward to becoming a mom and meeting our little babe in six months. Kevin and I feel over the moon to be having a healthy pregnancy so far, and to become a family of three later this year.

Since confirming my pregnancy back in early April, we’ve been keeping the news mum beyond telling our families. Hearing our baby’s heartbeat for the first time at 7 weeks was nothing short of surreal and totally incredible. For the most part, I’ve had a calm and smooth first trimester — feeling very thankful, happy, but tired. The exhaustion I felt was real!

Now being 14+ weeks along, I’ll be opening up more about the first trimester, whether we’re finding out our baby’s gender, symptoms/cravings, traveling internationally during early pregnancy (I was 9-10 weeks during our recent trip to Europe), thoughts on becoming a mom, etc. I’m thinking a Q&A style post might be fun…! What do you think? Let me know in the comments section, on Instagram, or by email if you have any questions or topics of interest.

Sharing this news with you finally feels so good. Since beginning this blog six years ago — I can’t believe it’s been that long — I’ve documented many different personal experiences and life milestones. This one feels like the best one yet. Thank you for your love and support during this brand new exciting chapter. ♡

  • Happy 1 Month to our William! You arrived a week ahead of schedule, ready to meet the world on December 9. Since then, we’ve celebrated Christmas and New Year’s together — plus your first road trip. You love your activity play gym, contrast board books, bath time, big stretches, and lots of cuddles. We can’t wait to watch you grow! 💙

  • Cheers to 2020! My first post of the new year is published to my blog, sharing reflections on 2019 and hopes for the year ahead 🕊
  • A toast to 2019 🥂 The last year offered a lot to celebrate, personally: Our first year of marriage, a European honeymoon, a new home, and our firstborn baby. There were ups, downs, and everything in between — but I’m leaving 2019 feeling incredibly blessed, honestly a bit tired (haha) and total happiness for the new year. May your 2020 bring you love, joy, and whatever you may be wishing for 🕊
