And Then There Were Four

Chad, Archie and I are so, so excited to let the cat out of the bag and let everyone know that our family of three will become four this September!


I’m well into my second trimester and we found out a while back we’re having another boy! Besides the usual first trimester nausea, tiredness, and weird tastes in my mouth, I feel pretty normal. I’m continuing to stay as active as I can and will see how far I can keep running this time around. I made it until about 34 weeks with Archie so here’s to hoping I can keep it up.

We know Archie has no clue what is really about to happen in September but we know that he’ll be a great big brother as he is such a very affectionate and loving kid already. He loves giving hugs and kisses and he seems to have no shortage.


It’s crazy to think we are going to have another newborn in our house. Those days with Archie seem so long ago and just went by way too quickly. I sort of can’t wait to feel the heavy breaths of a small, snuggly newborn on my chest and buried into my neck with his sweet milk breath.

The next few months I’m sure I’ll pop in with pregnancy updates, random pictures and stories of how we are preparing to transition to adding another boy to our nest. We’ll be shuffling Archie to his own big boy room and keeping the nursery the same for the new little guy. We have some projects up our sleeves for Archie’s new room that we hope turn out as great as we picture them in our mind so I’m sure I’ll be documenting along the way.

We feel very blessed and are thankful for your kind thoughts and prayers throughout the remainder of this pregnancy and on through after he is born as we adjust to a life with two.


Ready or not… here we go!!!


Long Time, No See

Where have the past almost 6 months gone?! It’s been nice to step back, take a breather and wait until I felt ready to write again. Life has been busy, crazy and awesome the last few months. Taking a break was needed and did not go under appreciated in my life.

Archie Stone is now 18 months old and is amazing us everyday with learning and growing. The past 3 weeks have been a little rough on us with cutting more teeth and a 2 day virus stint that has all resulted in poor nap times and waking up at odd times in the middle of the night. Poor babe has never given us sleeping fits so this has thrown us for a loop. But hey, I’m chalking it up to just being a phase and transitioning so we’ll power through and hopefully come out the other side unscathed. I mean, but seriously, he’s still the cutest thing ever.


Chad and I are great. Bustling around town with errands, meetings, work, play dates and squeezing in a date with eachother whenever we can. We are just now getting warmer temperatures in Louisville and we are welcoming it with open and loving arms. It’s about time. This winter was quite rough on all of us Louisvillians.


Baking and cooking took a seat on the back burner for about 2-3 months and I’m just now getting the itch to get back into the kitchen again which is so nice. I find myself going through those uninspired, unmotivated droughts every once in a while and then when the urge comes back, it comes back with a vengenance.

20140403-114143.jpgI don’t necessarily have a set plan for writing again. I plan on writing when the mood strikes, still documenting note-worthy recipes, talking about being a momma (to a bona fide toddler!!), and just living out my life along the way. So, buckle up friends, I’m back and I sure hope you’ll join me along the way.
