Baby #3!!

I shared yesterday that we are expecting Baby #3 in early February and we couldn't be more excited to be a family of FIVE next year. Thank you to everyone for all your kind words & congratulations!!


Olivia and Penelope are 27 months apart; I absolutely love their spacing and how I had over two full years with Olivia as my only child. I really wanted to be able to treasure my first few years as a new mom and soak in every experience & every stage before adding Baby #2. 

Once Poppy was born, of course things got even more fun and being that Olivia was 2.5 at the time, she was already so independent and helpful. Now that she is almost 3.5, I barely feel like I need to do anything for her, she constantly impresses me with all the things she does for herself, for others and to help me around the house and with Penelope. It certainly makes my days less stressful, since most of the time I feel like I'm only taking care of one! ;)

{so beautifully illustrated & with words that made my heart melt}

Our hope and prayer was that Baby #3 would be closer in age to Poppy than our first two were, just to experience something totally different. They will be 17-18 months apart, depending on when he or she arrives. We are so grateful for this unfolding adventure as we prepare for our new addition and look forward to seeing their sweet little face! We find out what we're having in just under a month and can't wait to start creating a special space in our home for our little babe once we do. We've had both names chosen for almost a year now, and I'm looking forward to calling them by name after we find out.

Hope your week is off to a great start!! It feels like Fall around here and we are all loving it. Pumpkin crumb cake is on our agenda this week as well as backyard picnics and lots of naps for us all! 
More pregnancy + baby updates to come! XO
