hi sweet friends! these blog posts have been few and far in between lately and i promise there is a v good reason for that! firstly, summer is here. and boy does summer bring so many activities + get togethers. we’ve been on vacations, weekend getaways, soaking up the warm vitamin d in our backyard, taking boat rides on the river, and staying way too late. lately i have found myself completely overwhelmed and it has been so nice unplugging a bit more and just being there with my boys, literally watching them grow by the day. we’ve celebrated two birthdays this summer, which totally reminds myself that i need to post a hayden lane update. he is four now. F O U R.
we think these days go so incredibly fast, which i mean they do, but in all reality i feel like he has been here an entire lifetime with us. i hardly remember a time without him. so in all reality, four years sounds so completely short compared to a lifetime. but then i’m like, HOW IN THE WORLD ARE YOU FOUR. STOP GROWING. anyways, this should be for my hayden post. back to the update…
secondly, the v good reason for the time away. i feel so incredibly blessed to share with you all that we are expecting baby number three! yes, number three! i cannot even put into words how excited we are, just elated + on cloud nine. we found out as soon as we got home from our arizona/california vacation back in june and the very first people we shared our news with was of course, the boys. to hear them talk about the baby makes my heart explode. i know hayden will be my little sidekick and best helper and finley, well he keeps pointing to my tatas and saying “baby’s milk now?” but in all honesty, i know he is so ready for this role of big brother.
this little peanut is making me feel all the feels, including the lovely all day sickness. it’s been worse than ever before, but i constantly remind myself that this is such a good thing; a happy, healthy growing babe. the tiredness is so real, and most nights i am in bed before the boys. there’s been endless amounts of days of the boys watching way too much tv, followed with me lying on the couch next to them. but goodness, i wouldn’t trade this for anything.
we will be welcoming this little peanut in the winter, but until then, i’ll be filling all of these days with my two boys, soaking up our togetherness. watching my body change and work in such a beautiful way, taking in every little move this sweet baby makes, and praying. praying for a healthy pregnancy, a healthy baby, and for these two sweet boys to welcome this change with open arms. if you’re the praying type, we ask for you to join us in this exciting time. and we thank you for all the outpouring love we know this baby + family will receive from you all. you’re the best and we just are so happy you’re here with us on this next season of life!
