Baby #3, Pregnancy

Our third baby story

It has been a entirely too long since I’ve posted on my blog. Months too long, actually. Between homeschooling and stay-at-home life with two toddlers, blogging has been just a liiiittle bit on the back burner. And that’s okay, but now I have some (big) things to catch up on! I do want to keep… Continue reading Our third baby story

Homeschool

Preschool Ocean Unit Study

We finished up Jameson's first year of homeschool preschool a few weeks ago (hooray!) but we were only done for a few days before he was begging me to do "more school" haha! I'd been planning on doing a unit on the ocean for a few months now, sometime in between preschool and the start… Continue reading Preschool Ocean Unit Study

At home, Baby #2

Four.

As I sit here writing this on a Sunday afternoon, all my babies are asleep. Yes, all of them (Alex and Charlie included). So it's the perfect time to finally post some of my favorites from Nora's newborn photoshoot! We considered hiring a professional photographer for these pictures but it really came down to us… Continue reading Four.

Baby #2

She came with the sun

Nora Joy. Our sweet October sunshine girl is here! She was born ten days early on Thursday, October 19th at 9:13am. She was 7 lbs, 6 oz, 19 inches long and absolutely beautiful in every way. Since the day we found out that I was due near the end of October, I had the 19th… Continue reading She came with the sun

Our simple & sweet baby girl nursery

I'm so excited to share this today! Our baby girl's nursery is complete. I'm almost 36 weeks right now so we still had a bit of time to finish it up, but I'm so happy it's done! (Nesting totally takes over my mind at the end of my pregnancies.) We chose to go very simple and… Continue reading Our simple & sweet baby girl nursery

Life with Jameson, Personal Writing

Our breastfeeding journey

If you haven't guessed from the title, surprise! I want to spend a little time talking about the experience I had breastfeeding my first baby. 🙂 This will probably be a longer post so skip it if you like. It's really mostly for myself, to reflect on so many things that have been tumbling around… Continue reading Our breastfeeding journey

At home, Baby #2, Bumpdates

Bumpdate – 19 weeks

I'm almost halfway done with this pregnancy so I figured it's about time I write one of these! I was so consistent when I was pregnant with Jameson and posted a bumpdate once a week for the entire pregnancy. But it's much harder to be on top of things like this when you have a… Continue reading Bumpdate – 19 weeks

Baby #2, Pregnancy

Pregnancy reveal!

I recently shared about the family photoshoot we had done last month when my grandma came for a visit (which you can see here) but I conveniently left out a few choice pictures. 😉 Alex and I announced our pregnancy to my family right smack in the middle of it! One thing I regretted a… Continue reading Pregnancy reveal!

We're having another baby. We're having another baby! I am so dang excited!!!! We told our families when I… Continue reading Our second baby story

A sweet treat for your valentine 

Valentine's Day is over and gone, but these little treats can be made all year long! (If you end an argument with a rhyme, it's convincing all the time. I learned that from "How I Met Your Mother.") Anywho! I brought these mini heart-shaped pies to a ladies Valentine's event for my church and the… Continue reading A sweet treat for your valentine
