For the past six weeks or so I have been itching to write again and looking for an outlet. When Alex and I started this blog, it was to document our pregnancy and birth experiences and truly share our life with our sweet friends and family. As the blog began to grow I got a little hung up on making sure that everything I shared was “monumental” and forgot to share the fun and quirky details that truly make up our day to day life. What I have discovered – I still want to share how Evan is growing and all the funny things he is doing. I still want to share some of our favorite products and recipes. I still want to share about the encouraging moments and the difficult days. Just as each day of our lives are filled with these things, so is this blog. You may never know what to expect, but you can know that it will be real, it will be genuine, and it will be “us.”
So, here we are – back again – and ready to share Our Life with you. But that’s not all – because our life is changing – QUICKLY!!
Yep – that’s right. Our sweet baby girl is scheduled to make her appearance in about 8 weeks!! We are so excited! My plan is to take some time to go back and share parts of this pregnancy journey here over the next 8 weeks. I have missed recording the milestones of this pregnancy and I want to make sure they are all here to remember as our family grows.
Evan is growing and growing…and then growing some more. He is still a little guy – not too high on the growth charts, but trust me – he is growing too fast!! He is changing so much every day – it’s unbelievable. He is running, climbing, and talking non stop. He is so silly and playful. He love love loves Toy Story and Finding Nemo. We have a collection of Toy Story characters that make their way back and forth between his room and the living room each day between morning and bedtime. He just likes to have them wherever he is. He has recently transitioned to a toddler bed so that the crib can be used for little sister. He loves his bed. Between the freedom that it gives him and the novelty of it, he just can’t get enough of it. Everyone that comes over has to go and see “MY BED!”
So, welcome back to Our Life. It is quickly changing, incredibly fun, and usually messy – but it’s ours – and we are excited to share it with you.
