a well loved dress

Last Sunday Ruthie wore one of the dresses that my mom made for my sister when she was a baby. She made a larger size for me which will fit Lael perfectly once I fix the hem. I can’t wait to put them in these dresses together! Here is a picture of Lael wearing it. Seems…

i want to remember

I want to remember that sparkle in her eye. That thinking look that she gives me when we’re face to face. How she watches my every move as I go about the room. I want to remember the fluff of her hair. The soft wave that she gets from her daddy. The wispy hairs that…

back in the saddle

Before Lael was born I had a business called Blush and Bashful Baby making burp cloths, bibs, and appliqued onesies. I had to take a little break for a while to get the hang of this momma thing. 🙂 But finally I’m trying to get back in the saddle! This time I am specializing in…

growing things

Things are growing around here. My little girl, my belly, and some herbs. How’s that for a combination? It’s safe to say that life is in full bloom. Reminds me of a maternity shirt my mom and I recently saw hanging in a storefront. It said, “Love in full bloom”. To which my sweet momma asked, “Can…

the zoo

A couple of Saturdays ago we drove down the road a piece to the Greenville Zoo. It’s pretty close to our house. Close enough for us to hear the monkeys when they get all loud and riled up. Generally, it’s not common to hear the shreeks of monkeys when you walk out of your front…

21 weeks

How far along? 21 weeks and 2 days. See here my 21 week picture with Lael. Total weight gain/loss: + 5 lbs. Maternity clothes? That’s pretty much all I wear. I love maternity clothes. They’re so comfy. Stretch marks? nope Sleep: Sleep is okay. I’ve already started sleeping with a pillow between my knees. Something about it helps keep my body aligned,…
