spilling the beans!

this year has been a wonderful one for me and my little family...it's brought us lots and lots of goodness!
but the last 3 months have been the best and most exciting and the hardest to not share...

we're having a baby, friends!
another summer baby to add to my beautiful brood!

 we're completely over the moon...baby is healthy and the size of a lime this week (i'm 12 weeks along...although i feel about 7...2nd time pregnancies move much faster than the first...geesh!)! 

max is already the best big brother and matt is my constant rock and strength and late night snacking partner.

i'm one lucky mama..and so excited for this new year!
and good grief does it feel good to finally let you all in on this! who's ready to start planning a nursery and squeal with me over baby socks?

  84. when i saw the title of this post in my reader i just knew i was going to have to post a "congratulations!!!" and a confession...but scrolling through the comments to get to the little "post comment" button i see that i am not the only one who was a little suspicious of your holiday photos!! but you know its rude to suggest someone is pregnant...especially if they're not! but there was just something about you in recent photos...and it's not just that sneaky little bump i'm talking about! ;) whether we knew it or not...the point is...hooray!! congratulations, hugs, and high fives!!! this is very exciting news and following along on your new adventure is going to be beyond adorable...i just know it! love love.

  91. Oh my goodness...I was wondering in your last post with the picture of Max in his football uniform. I was thinking those strategically placed gifts over the belly may have been serving a purpose. Congratulations!

    I've been reading your blog for some time, but don't know if I've ever commented. It's so wonderful to find a good blog from the midwest (I'm from Columbus and am now living in Fort Wayne, IN). It's also fun to know we have something else in common now, as I am 15 weeks pregnant. I am so excited to see how Max responds to being a big brother...I'm sure he'll cherish his new role :)

    These pictures are simply lovely.
    And yes, I am so excited to see what you do with a nursery. I know it will be absolutley amazing.
    Heartfelt congratulations from a mommy of 5.
    It gets better every time!
