We're thrilled to finally be sharing our news! We've wanted to add another babe to our little family for a long time now and we're just happy (& nervous!) it's happening.

And with some serious nausea and lots of afternoon naps, things have been pretty quiet (& messy!) around here. I'm a few weeks from the second trimester and counting pretty hard on it to bring some extra energy and feel good vibes.

L is at the age where she gets what is going on. She couldn't be happier! She's always talking about the baby or hugging my belly. She's prepping to be the best big sister, EVER. She also insists this baby is a girl. I guess we'll see about that soon enough!

So far, things are different yet kind of the same as my pregnancy with L. I'm happy to say I have a great OB with an awesome nurse staff and at the moment, we're moving ahead with a regular, normal non-high risk pregnancy.  With L, I was high-risk with less-than-supportive doctors and tests after tests after tests. It's odd but welcome to think this time might be a little more relaxed.

Here's to the next seven months, eating all the watermelon and getting more blog posts up!

HELLO NEW YORK

Things have been quiet on the blog front these days. I never intentionally dropped the documenting here, it just slipped by. And while I have so many moments to share here, it's all going to have to wait longer.

We're off to New York tonight. Here's hoping for a smooth flight, a fun week and a happy kid!

While it's technically June, I'm pretending it isn't and playing a little catch-up!

Watching... The Good Wife. I'm catching up on past seasons and I'm addicted, to say the least.


Reading... City of Heavenly Fire. It's the last book in The Mortal Instruments series.

Celebrating... the start of Summer, L's last soccer game, and later this weekend we'll be celebrating my nephew. He's graduating high school!

Loving... the color gray. We're slowly painting most of the walls in the house the sweetest gray. It looks so crisp and clean!

Putting off... everything that isn't a must-do.

Looking forward to... our trip to New York in a few weeks.

Making... time for naps.

Proud of... our girl. Mothering her is delicate work some days but watching her blossom is the most rewarding.

Back... into weekly library trips. And filling up the largest bag we have full of books!

Please feel free to link up any of your "currently" posts in the comments, xo!

She's forever a fan of peanut butter sandwiches. I'm forever a fan of her little gap.

I'm doing this series - a portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014. Follow along, link up & find more from this project here.
