Meet Oliver!

That’s right – we had another boy! I am inching one step closer to soccer mom status every day. Haha.

Oliver was born early in the morning on the 30th after a smooth labor and delivery and we brought him home Memorial Day. He’s healthy, I’m trying to get a routine down and the rest of the household is adjusting to our new addition – Jeremy is happy for newborn cuddles at night after we put Elias down for bed, Elias is learning how to be a big brother and the cats are spending all their time upstairs and away from the chaos. Haha.

It’s been four weeks and it already feels like time is speeding up – I swear my boys are noticeably bigger every time I look at them. For now, I’m trying to slow down and cherish the little things every day that I get be a part of because I am a stay at home mom – everything from meltdowns over wanting to help make hot chocolate to Elias cuddling up next to me and Oliver and telling me I’m his best friend (and then also telling me Oliver is his best friend 🙂 ).

Being a mom is the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done and I cannot wait to see where this next step in our adventure takes us. 🙂

Third Trimester Q+A

And…I’m back! It literally seems like yesterday I was typing up my first trimester Q+A; things have been so different this time around and it’s been difficult to keep up with anything other than pregnancy and motherhood. It’s hard to believe I’m well into my third trimester! In just a few short weeks, we will finally meet our new addition – to say we are all excited is a bit of an understatement. Elias talks about the baby every day and we’re hoping that we’ve prepared him the best we can and that he will love being a big brother.
