Hello friends! I have thought about writing this post a million times. The timing just never felt quite right. The truth is, we wanted to keep this sweet secret for ourselves for little while. It’s the reason I haven’t been around much here on the blog or on Instagram. If you’ve seen any of my recent IG stories you may have already guessed the big news. If you missed those stories, here it is – we’re expecting baby #2! Our family of 3 is growing!
I had planned to get back to work here at SMD after the first of the year, but in the beginning of January we found out that we have a little one on the way. In typical fashion the exhaustion and nausea set in and blogging just didn’t seem so important. You see, our son is 10 years old. We had never planned to have such a large gap between children, but that’s just the way things worked out. After trying on and off for quite some time, we decided that we needed to be content with the blessing we already had. Thankfully, God knew better and after many many prayers He saw fit to give us a baby girl.
Baby Audrey is due in September. I haven’t decided just yet if we’ll share her middle name here in blog land. Sometimes it’s nice to keep those things just for family and close friends. I’m sure you understand.
After we found out we were expecting a girl, I took a couple of months to decided on a direction for the nursery. I really didn’t know if we would ever have another nursery. After all it’s been 10 years since Charlie was born. Once our hopes for another child became a reality, it was important to me that I took my time and really loved each design choice. I’m still diligently working in this room, but here’s a little sneak peek to give you idea of the direction I’ve gone. I’ll share an entire room reveal with details soon.
This has been such an exciting time for our family. We have made sure to spend our summer making sweet memories with Charlie. Taking time away from the blog and social media has been a must for me. Although Charlie is excited to have a new sibling, it will definitely be an adjust for him. Creating quality time together these last few months has been very important to us.
I’m not sure what the rest of the year will look like when it comes to the blog. I haven’t shared much this year, but I have been completing projects that I’m anxious to share with you all. I’m going to try my very best to get them photographed and posted. Until then, have a great week & thank you do bring apart of this exciting time for our family!
