My baby boy's room annnnnd due dates are no fun. . .

Our baby boy, Rocco, should be here before the end of this month and he has consistently measured two weeks ahead for months. During our last ultrasound we were told he is on track to be a ten pounder - just like Olivia. Eek. Needless to say, I left that ultrasound appointment feeling a little bummed. I was hopeful he wouldn’t be THAT big. Especially since I had been working out, eating so well and I haven’t gained near what I did when I was pregnant with Olivia. Apparently, if you have big babies, you just have big babies! lol He’s not here yet SO maybe I gotta chance of having a small-er baby?! We shall see! The past two weeks have been the most challenging. I keep having these serious pains that take my breath away and make me feel like I am going to be sick. I keep thinking that all these things I am feeling are a sign that he is about to be here and then I wake up annnnnd. . .nothing. lol Due dates are just an estimate based on too many different factors. I have got to get it out of my head and carry on. Literally! Carry him on! I think with him measuring two weeks ahead of “schedule” I have just had it in my head that he will be here two weeks sooner. lol

The good news is I have had this amazing burst of energy today and I have gotten so many things around the house done. Closets are all cleaned out and organized, the girl’s bedroom has been rearranged and organized, bags and bags of clothes and toys are ready to be taken to Goodwill. I could go on and on about my laundry, dishes and how awesomely clean my kitchen cabinets are! BUT I won’t. lol Instead, how about I take you on a tour of Rocco’s cute room?!

I wanted to go bold on the color! I knew it would be fine to go with a darker color because of how high the cream colored wainscoting is up the wall. SO happy with our decision!little_boys_room_decor_0002.jpgBefore we knew Rocco’s gender, I purchased these cute stuffed animal heads. I wasn’t quite sure how we were going to place them in his room. Trey came up with the idea of taking pallet wood and cutting it down into these little plaques. Perfection!little_boys_room_decor_0003.jpglittle_boys_room_decor_0004.jpglittle_boys_room_decor_0015.jpgCheck out that light fixture! Originally, we installed Edison bulbs and they looked beautiful. However, the hue they cast in the room was just TOO orange for our liking. little_boys_room_decor_0005.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0013.jpgTrey got super creative and built lots of cool pipe shelves and he even made the curtain rod.little_boys_room_decor_0006.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0007.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0001.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0008.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0009.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0010.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0011.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0012.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0016.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0014.jpg little_boys_room_decor_0017.jpg Look at all those clothes AND diapers! Woohoo! His drawers are even full of clothes, blankets, sweet little swaddles and SO much more!

When we had our baby shower (which I promise I will share photos from soon!), we got the cutest most helpful gifts for him. I am really looking forward to him being here and a part of our family. So, now I wait and pray! If you would, please keep me and Rocco in your prayers. It would mean so much to me! I remember when I was pregnant with Olivia, I asked all of my friends and family to cover her and I in their prayers. It gave me a confidence like none other I had ever had.

My goal is to have Rocco, non-medicated. That is how I had Olivia and it was so amazing. I used hypnobirthing techniques and they worked perfectly! So perfectly, I had ZERO pain! It's all mind over matter. If you will keep us in your prayers. My prayer is that his birth will be quick and pain free.

Trey and I seriously can't wait to meet him, for our girls to meet their baby brother and to share him with you guys!

My Olivia's Cake Smash

My doll turns TWO today! This morning, Trey, RyAnne and I all walked into her room and woke her up signing happy birthday. She was so excited to see us all that she said, "HEY!" and then started jumping up and down in her crib. She has to be the happiest baby I've ever met!
So, let's reminisce a bit! I don't know why or how I never posted this blog last year buuut I found it saved as a draft. I'm sure I had a major brain fart and forgot to "publish". lol I did this session last year for her cake smash. She still loves sugar!

Rylie turns ONE!

Today it's snowing. And everyone is so excited about it. . .NOT me! lol I don't really love the snow. I prefer to have the least amount of clothing on as possible (not trying to be weird here!) and for the temperature to be like 90 degrees with lots of humidity. Now that is my jam. :) So, while you cold lovers are enjoying your flakes, how about my tropical folks check out this little doll face! ;) Rylie just turned ONE! She was the sweetest little client.
