Welcome to the World!

Surprise! We welcomed baby Oscar last Saturday night and have been in the loving stupor that comes with a newborn ever since. So far, this little guy has been sweet and easy, making the adjustment as smooth as I could have ever hoped.


For anyone paying attention you might have noticed he arrived a little earlier than planned. Due to a a medical scare, he got his eviction notice at 37 weeks.  Despite this pregnancy being much more difficult than the one I had with Aggie, I was so not ready when my doctors broke the news to me that it was time!  Ok, break the news is probably the wrong term - it was more like drag me to the hospital kicking and screaming.  I really wanted those last 3 weeks to finish my to do list and mentally prepare for labor and recovery and having a baby in the house again - but you know what they say about god laughing at a plan?  Well yea, that. Thankfully, it all worked out okay (my to-do list not withstanding) and we are feeling very lucky to a healthy, baby boy to complete our little family.

While I plan to take it easy for a bit as I focus on the littles, I have some great projects to share over the next few weeks including the nursery reveal (see the design plan here), the country cottage patio (check out the living room and dining room)  and a friend's beautiful gut renovation before and afters. And of course Halloween is coming (check out prior year's spooky celebrations) so I'll be putting my nose to the grindstone on those projects soon.

As usual, I'll be sharing the occasional baby post here but if you want more frequent updates, follow me on Instagram for more of a real time look at what happens around here.

  12. Precious! I'm going to assume you wanted a boy this time. : - )


    1 Samuel 1:26-28


    She said, "Oh, my lord! As your soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you, praying to the LORD. "For this boy I prayed, and the LORD has given me my petition which I asked of Him. "So I have also dedicated him to the LORD; as long as he lives he is dedicated to the LORD " And he worshiped the LORD there.

  14. Congratulations! I never made it over 38 weeks, all my babies came early. I did miss the extra time to prep, but I was glad I didn't have to endure the last few weeks of discomfort. Good luck with the babes-love the name too.

  20. I've said it before and I'll say it again, when you have such beautiful babies, well, you just should have more! :) He looks so much like your little girl! Congratulations, so happy for you and your growing family. Do take time to relax a bit, that to do list can wait a little while. Wish I were a young mom again. I'd take the time that seems to have flown by me. They're all grown & I'm anxiously waiting for one of them to tell me a grandchild is on the way. What a wonderful holiday season you'll have!! Best wishes....
