We're Having Another Baby!!


We are so thrilled to announce that we are having another baby! And Lilah is so excited that she is going to be a big sister. I'm only 9.5 weeks along but I feel comfortable sharing the news at this point. I'm due on May 6th {Cinco de Mayo baby?} I've been so nauseous and exhausted every single day but really hoping it gets better in the coming weeks. Please, send me your tricks! Surviving the day with a toddler and running a business while feeling so run down is no easy task. But still, I do feel so very lucky. We find out the gender in about 2 weeks...{maybe an instagram live? We will see.} But so that you better understand these pictures, let me explain how I told my husband. 

Let's start from the beginning. The first time around, after suffering a disappointing chemical pregnancy and a devastating miscarriage, when we found out we were pregnant for the third time {with Lilah} we were very skeptical. It wasn't until I made it to the second trimester then that we felt safe enough to be excited. So this time, I didn't want fear to get in the way. I wanted the exciting moment that I always pictured it would be. So there was no way I was just going to walk out of the bathroom with a test in my hand again, it had to be better than that.

I devised a plan to have the moment photographed, because moments like these always turn out to be the best photos. I found out on a Friday and did not tell him until Sunday which felt like forever. He's not exactly one to drop everything for a photo shoot and I also knew his work schedule would get in the way so I told him I had to do a "campaign" for a card company, like I often do for my blog, and he agreed to be in it. I bought 2 cards from the store and told he and Lilah to stand back to back as one of my friends snapped some pics of them holding them for this "campaign". Then as she kept snapping, I told them both to turn around at the same time. That's when he saw that I had swapped her card for a sign announcing that she was going to be a big sister. After a moment of confusion, you can see he was very excited. And I am so thrilled to have this memory photographed.
