After three years of tutus, princesses and all pink everything we are expecting TWO boys! To say these little guys will complete our family is the understatement of the year. You would think my husband was the one yearning for a boy but honestly he was completely okay with the idea of a house full of girls and he almost just expected it. Me on the other hand, I have always wanted a little boy and the moment I realized we were getting TWO was so full of emotion!

I have to admit, my girls are everything I could have dreamed for. They are close in age and will be best friends their whole life! I talked in the past about how much I hoped and wished for my second to be a girl (you can read more about that HERE) so when we found out she was a girl we were over the moon! So this time around came with a little anxiety. My husband and I had talked about having three kids before we were married (even though I have always dreamed of having four) so this baby would be our last. Coming from a big close-knit family, full of siblings and cousins who I truly call my friends, I always dreamed of that for my children. The anxiety wasn’t anything major, I think it was a mix of “this is my last pregnancy” type of feelings but the thought of gender was agonizing! Yes I wanted healthy above all but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I did wish for a boy BUT would have totally fallen in love with another little princess!

I decided to journal my feelings in my Polka Dot Print Shop Bump Book and will share with you all as well!

The FIRST surprise came at my “dating ultrasound.” We had been trying to conceive and after my miscarriage in November we were pretty frequent visitors at my OB’s office. Jason was actually tied up at work for the appointment but I figured we wouldn’t be seeing much anyways and went to the appointment on my own with my little sidekick, Lo. “There we go?” the ultrasound tech said in a cheery voice! Automatic relief fell over me! “The baby looks great and right on track” ::whew:: Then a pause…”There’s another one…two babies!” I honestly am not sure I said anything at that point…maybe I threw out an “are you sure?” and a “OMG”. The tech measured them and said “One is measuring 6w2d and one is measuring is 6w6d, I’d say a boy and girl if you ask me!” I had to wrap my head around two babies and couldn’t even fathom the genders yet…DID SHE SAY TWO BABIES?! The rest of the appointment was a blur. I met with the doctor, something about taking extra folic acid and seeing a specialist for twins and a whole lot of charley brown…waaaa….waaaa..waaaa. Lo had no idea what she just witnessed but she was as happy as a clam with her snacks so I just kept handing her more. I decided to wait to tell Jason until he got home that night.

I lined up our shoes in a row: Mine, Joie’s, Lola’s and two sets of little baby shoes. When he walked in I said “well go ahead and take your shoes off for this one.” To which he looked over at my line up and looked up white as a ghost! After the shock wore off, the excitement and nervousness set in! I think we both took some time to internalize the idea of two more kids but at the end of the day we feel so blessed!

Gender time!!

We went to a “pregnancy boutique” right at 14 weeks to find out…because I have zero chill 🙂 It didn’t take the tech long to say the first was a BOY! He definitely wasn’t being shy! So when it came to the second one the tech started to say “BOY!” and as she did Lo started getting sick all over the couch in the room we were in. To be a little descriptive it wasn’t just a little sick either, it was projectile all over the couch, sick. Jason jumped to her and I couldn’t have hopped off the couch with a belly full of gel fast enough! It was a show that is for sure! Needless to say there was little time to celebrate in that moment but we were eventually over the moon with the news!!

Thanks for coming along this journey with us! We can’t wait to update you and our Bump Book more along the way!

  • #morethanmamahood // From as early as I can remember I wanted to be a mom. I had the amount of kids and how old I wanted to be when I was done having them in my head. I put it out into the universe on multiple occasions. The universe more than reciprocated my dreams by giving me the most incredible man to create a life with! But just as much as I wanted to be a mom I also wanted to follow my creative dreams too. It wasn’t until I had my first daughter that I realized I could do both. I was capable of creating exactly what I always dreamed of. This blog is more than just sharing products I love, it’s the creative outlet that I need to feel like me. I enjoy spending way too much time throwing a party that my friends can enjoy, or decorating a space I can share with family. I love helping brands that I adore to showcase their products so that other parents can be made aware of them. To create endless inspiration. This stuff makes me feel like me and nothing more! So I may be a mom but I’m also following my dreams ✨ I’m so thankful for the opportunity to team up with @wearingmomjeans (and some other amazing mamas!) on this ‘More Than Mamahood’ project and you can see the video we participated in on her page now! If nothing else I hope this opens your eyes to the possibility and happiness that you are deserving of, mama 💕 #motherhood #wereinthistogether

  • I am at a loss of words for the amazing video @isbellfamilyfilms put together for me using all the random videos I had in my phone from our vacation!

If you want to turn your random videos into something this beautiful don’t hesitate! Isbell Family Films works wonders 🎥✨I linked the full YouTube link in my stories as well! #familyvaca #familyvideography
  • Just two little boys looking more and more like big boys 😭💙 Remember when they were just born!? That was yesterday right? Knowing they’re my last two makes this whole growing up part even harder and so bittersweet! I’m so content being done with the baby phase of our life but watching the baby in them slip away is hard too. It’s such a weird place to be in. But we’re done. Totally done 🤣 Did you know when you were done having kids? I’d love to hear below! 👶🏻 🍼
