Hello friends! Sorry things have been so quiet around here lately. It’s just hard to stay behind a computer for longer than necessary when the temperature outside hits that perfect medium between warm and blazing hot! And the truth is I’ve also been rather busy working on a very special project the past few months, and although it’s not quite finished yet, I wanted to give you all a sneak peek…

pregnancy announcement

Yes, there’s a baby on the way! In early August, to be specific. The apartment is in utter chaos right now as we try to rearrange our entire home to make space for this nugget, but it’s so worth it to see stuffed animals and chunky books start to make their way onto our shelves :-)

Everyone keeps asking me how I feel, and physically? Pretty great! Mentally? Scared and excited to the Nth degree! When we first got Toby (after going to the breeder’s place to “just take a look”), I distinctly remember thinking “OMG what did we just do?? We don’t know how to take care of this thing!” on the car ride home with a squirming puppy in my lap. This is pretty much how I feel as the weeks fly by, poring over pregnancy forums and reviews for baby monitors and strollers and swaddles. It’s an overwhelming time, but I’m comforted by the little (and sometimes not so little!) kicks in my belly each day, and I know we’ll figure everything out together along the way. Toby turned out to be an upstanding gentleman after all, so how hard can all this baby stuff be, right? HA!

    Yay! Congrats, you really took your time sharing that news! I’m due mid-August and it’s been blog official for months lol! I think it’s only natural to feel a little apprehensive, but I am SURE that you’ll do great! When you bring that tiny bebe home from the hospital all they do is eat, sleep and poop for a while. You’ll be a pro at all that before they move on to crawling, eating etc. The changes come on gradually and you’ll learn how to deal with each one as you go. I feel that parenthood is both the biggest challenge and the most rewarding thing I’ve ever gotten myself into!

  7. Oh my goodness, congratulations Gloria!!! That really is the best project ever! :D I’m sure you’re going to be a great mama :)

I cannot wait to see what magic you whip up for the little nugget’s nursery, and, of course, the little nugget itself! Are you guys going to find out the sex before, or is it going to be a surprise? So happy for you!! Toby, you’re going to be a big brother!! xo

      I totally agree with Sydney! My mom and husband always joke that I was like dead man walking going into the hospital to have my first. I was completely terrified. I can barely keep a plant alive so I couldn’t imagine keeping a human alive. But like Sydney says, instincts take over! And luckily they’re new at everything too, so if you make a mistake here or there, they don’t know the difference ;)

      Congrats! I’m SO EXCITED for you!

      PS Love the Thief and Bandit dress!!!
