Well… it’s been a while since I’ve posted (7 months to be exact), and I figured what better time than 2 weeks before I’m due to give birth to start it up again?? But really, I figured I might as well start now since so many exciting things are going on.
Back when I started blogging this summer, I had just found out that Tim and I were expecting our second baby (YAY!) and I didn’t think that would impact me starting a blog or anything in my life really, because, well, I’d been pregnant before and now I was staying at home, so this should be a piece of cake. Well… what they say is true — all pregnancies are NOT the same. This pregnancy has been SO different from my first. So different that I was convinced I was having a boy… like 100% hands down, thought I was having a boy. I was so sick, all day, everyday, was craving different things, my skin was still clear… how could this be another girl?? But then the 12 week appointment came around and surprise! Another baby girl 🙂 The horrible all day “morning” sickness started 4th of July weekend and literally lasted until I was about 16 weeks pregnant — just in time for me to start planning Olivia’s first birthday party! I thought then I would start blogging again, but planning and hosting a birthday party and then having the busiest month of the year (what it seemed like, with baby showers, birthday parties and social events every week), I was pooped. And then November came around… and then December, which is always crazy busy, so I gave myself a start date of Jan. 1 to start blogging again. LOL. So that came and went and then I said okay Feb. 1! …and then that deadline passed and now it’s Feb. 7, and in between heating some PF Changs orange chicken and fried rice on the stove, here I am deciding to just go ahead and write that first blog post. That’s just how life goes~
So getting back into this, I figured I’d do a Throwback Thursday each week to highlight some outfits and photo shoots I’ve done since then (and of course, regularly scheduled blog posts in between 🙂 …and to kick it all off, here are photos from our Christmas card shoot — our last photoshoot as a family of three <3.
