If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you already know this, but I’m finally getting around to writing about it here – we’re expecting!
We could not be more excited about this news, and we’ve been feeling so loved and supported since I shared it on Instagram last month.
For those of you who are curious about the details (don’t worry, I would be, too), we’re adding a little lady to our family in November. My official due date is in the middle of the month, but as both of us were early babies and I have a smaller frame, we’re curious to see if she decides to introduce herself a little earlier. As long as we make it full term, I honestly wouldn’t mind sharing a birthday month with our daughter.
I know some people may ask about her name, and to be honest, we’re currently about 80% on what it’ll be. We had a few we were throwing around, but one is standing out to us the most. I decided early on that I wanted to keep it to ourselves once we did decide, so you guys will have to wait for a while to hear what we end up going with.
As we head into the last few months of pregnancy, we’ve been wrapping up work on her nursery, which has been really fun. We’re going a little different than the normal all pink everything most little girls get and instead, we painted the walls a minty-teal color. What can I say? I like that color a lot more than pink! I’ve also been frantically trying to finish the Mayo Clinic’s book on pregnancy and checking out a few others on sleep and parenting.
Throughout the last couple of years I’ve sort of lost my passion for blogging, which I think has become apparent in the fact that things have sort of dried up over here. It’s funny, though, because as things have been changing this year and I see life shifting with this addition to our family, I’ve been thinking about getting back to a more educational and lifestyle approach to this blog.
I feel like I’ve written that same thing over and over again over the past couple of years, but I may finally be making the shift around here. My gal Fran is currently my biggest inspiration on how I envision my blog changing, but we’ll see. I don’t anticipate becoming one of those people who only writes about their little one, but I certainly think I’d be a lot more inspired to keep coming back if I shift what I’m writing about just a little bit.
Maybe you guys can let me know what you think!
Thank you guys for sticking with me even as things have gotten quiet around here this year, and here’s to another new adventure!
