maternity shoot

maternity shoot

I’m on a roll with pregnancy-related blog posts lately! I recently shared a post with my birth affirmation cards, as well as a big overall pregnancy update post, and today I’m going to share photos from my maternity shoot. I really didn’t document my bump when pregnant with Lucy (other than a few iPhone snaps here and there, and some family photos) and wasn’t planning to do a maternity shoot this time around. I  have been sharing more bump selfies on Instagram (#littlebabyburd2), but wasn’t going to do anything formal or fancy to document the pregnancy. Then, I  got an email from a local photographer […]

a super long pregnancy #2 update!

a super long pregnancy #2 update!

I announced my pregnancy back in August (when I was about 13 weeks along), but I  have yet to share any details or updates on my blog since! I’m now almost 38 weeks along, so we just have a few weeks left until baby girl arrives!

birth affirmation cards

birth affirmation cards

We are down to crunch time – less than 4 weeks until my due date! I’ve caught myself being anxious and worried about giving birth all of a sudden, and I pulled out my birth affirmation cards to keep next to my bed. Most of these birth affirmation cards I wrote before I had Lucy, and used throughout my labor at home and in the hospital. I am a total ‘words of affirmation’ person – the encouragement and inspiration from these cards really, really helps me. I read them to get through contractions, and now, I’ve been reading them to alleviate some of my anxiety […]

we’re having a baby!

we’re having a baby!

It was right around this time two years ago that I was sharing a similar update….but you heard it right, we are having baby #2! Lucy is going to be a big sister! I’m so excited to finally share our news publicly because I am TERRIBLE at keeping secrets. Our little babe is due mid-February, so Lucy will be two years and a couple weeks older than this little guy or girl. I’m a little overwhelmed by the thought of having two kids (plus a dog who thinks he’s a human) but mostly SUPER excited and so grateful. 💛 Obviously, this isn’t my first rodeo […]
