Baby Grace

We had a 32 week check-up today. Our Gracie Girl is measuing at 3lbs, 10oz and has all 10 fingers and toes. She was adorable throughout the u/s.

She yawned and sucked her thumb and punched at the wand few times.

When she yawned, I burst into tears.

She was just perfect.

Can't wait to meet her! Only 7 more weeks!

I'm bwowing wasbewwies Mussy!

Last night we were hanging out with G's family and his 3 year old cousin kept giving kisses to "baby Grace" and telling me how he was going to teach her to do puzzles and she would need to sit at her special table to eat (high chair) and he just went on and on.

Then he started blowing raspberries on my belly and giggling. He calls me Mussy and kept saying "Mussy, I'm gibbing baby Gwace wasbewwies". And then he'd do it again.

This is Evan -

He's the reason I wanted a boy at first. He's the most precious 3 year old I've ever known and sometimes I love him so much my heart just feels like it's going to explode. He was our ringbearer in the wedding and didn't walk down the aisle, he RAN. Isn't he adorable!?!?

We are having a...

Why hello there! How have you been? It's been a few weeks since we've had a chance to catch up.

We found out we are having a.... wait. I'll get to that soon.

Halloween came and went. What did you do? We carved pumpkins and they were amazing.

This was me:

I didn't carve THAT pumpkin.

We do know what that pumpkin is though.

And we have a name.

So without further ado...


Yep! This mama is having a girl. It's amazing and overwhelming at the same time. And I feel like I'm carrying a piece of my mom forward into this world. No matter what I do, I've sent a little bit of her and I into this world.

We are going to name her Grace.

My friend Mrs. Jess sent me these adorable onesies for Grace.

Aren't they adorable? More updates to come soon - nursery and whatnot. I'll leave you with this stacking hen I bought!
