• We’re Having A Baby (Again!)

    Our family is growing! Oh Lovely Day

    If you follow me on instagram you already know this (I just couldn’t wait to share the news!) but our family of three is becoming a family of four in August! Charlie is very excited to be a big brother and I’m thrilled (and a little scared) to be the momma of two. 

    After trying for a while I became very aware of what it feels like to be trying to get pregnant and hear and see lots of other women around you announcing their pregnancies. It is something I had taken for granted, having gotten pregnant with Charlie so quickly and easily. So I wanted to be open and share that this was a struggle for us. We had been trying for a year, and had a loss during that time as well. If you are reading this and it makes you feel like you are the only one not getting pregnant, I’m sorry. I’ve been there myself. Hang in there – things will work out and you are so NOT alone.

    I had a pretty rough, sick first trimester (which is also really different from my pregnancy with Charlie). A couple of days before Christmas until this week, I’ve been super tired and sick most of the day. So if you have commented, emailed, submitted a wedding, or otherwise reached out to me and I haven’t responded, now you know why 🙂 And if I don’t post daily, it’s probably because I went to bed early or napped during Charlie’s nap. Please forgive me!

    And now for the fun part – you tell me, what’s new in baby (aside from my newest obsession with Freshly Picked moccs)? It’s been a while since I’ve been pregnant so share your favorite maternity products, cute maternity clothes sources, awesome baby products and adorable etsy and baby shops. You probably know something that I don’t. And if you are a baby store, shop, product, etc. and want to collaborate, I am looking to partner with some awesome companies on some fun baby giveaways and am looking to try new things as well (it’s great research for my regular writing gigs at Momtastic and Babylist too), so definitely get in touch!

    Alright guys, let the baby countdown begin! EEEEK!!

      Congrats! My biggest thing was learning about and doing a modified version of Hypnobirthing for my labor and delivery. It was amazing and easy (yes, EASY) and nearly painless.

        Cris, I’d love to know more about this! Is there a book or something? Or do you want to come be my doula? 🙂

    •  I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear
       Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds  And just like that, Calvin is more little boy than baby  #calvins3rdyear #boyhood
