Stopping By

It's been so long since I have stopped by this spot. I miss it. I have a list of crafts and projects I want to share. I also still whip out our camera to capture small graces but time  seems to slip by and I forget to document them. 

As you can see from the pictures below we are expecting a boy. Everyone is pleased and anxious to meet him. The boys are happy to dominate in number. Little Lady is happy to be our only princess and is glad that she doesn't have to share her daddy - I'm  not quite sure I understand her logic but it's adorable all the same. So far the Wee One seems completely healthy and that's really all Jeremy and I are hoping for. 

Jeremy and I started a tradition with Big Buddy where I get a new pair of pink or blue shoes to celebrate the baby's gender. The kids loved spraying each other with blue paint and Jeremy was a good sport but I was very content to just slip on these fun flats. 

I'm now 39 weeks pregnant and this one has been different from the other three. Not sure if it's age or that life is already so busy but I've been really tired and have struggled with anxiety. The first three pregnancy made me feel strong and fearless - a bit like a warrior women. I've mentioned before that after the birth of my last two I struggled with depression and anxiety but pregnancy and delivery were always sweet spots. My health has still been good. I don't have much to complain about, I once again seem to have escaped extreme nauseas, swelling, etc. Inwardly though, I have felt the strain and have been embracing rest, hence why it's so rare that I've been back here. I do have grand plans to return to posting more regularly but we will have see. This space has been a great outlet and fills me with so much joy and energy but it's honestly outweighed by the healing powers of sleep or sweet cuddles on the couch. 

The last couple months have been filled with fun stuff other than waiting for Wee One. Little Lady is back in dance and the boys were able to play on the same fall Little League team. A bit of bragging but I feel like the last couple months my three 'bigger' babies have grown so much - they are so funny and smart and have the sweetest hearts. 

did you know princess leia was a ballerina as a child? 
My middle school friends also came up for their annual visit. Jeremy has been mastering a new job - practicing rather than teach architecture. He still loves staying involved in his students lives though and we got watch him officiate one of their weddings this fall. I didn't get any good shots at the wedding put you can see pictures here. The location was pretty architectural salvage yard.

so thankful for these ladies! 

No promises on when I'll be back but if you are really curious about baby #4 you can always follow Jeremy or I on Instagram. 

Hello Again and Happy News

Wow! I can't believe it's been so long since I've written a blog post. I hope you all have been having a good summer. These past couple of months have been crazy busy; good things but hectic all the same. Both our boys played their first year of baseball and it seemed like most of our weekends were spent at the field. Mini Man and Little Lady also had their first dance recital. 

On top of that Jeremy spent the month of May in Italy/Spain teaching an architectural study tour. I was lucky enough to be able to join him for a little over a week while he was in Florence and Venice...I promise to post more pictures later. 

The biggest news, however, is that come December we will have a new baby!

I'm currently around sixteen weeks and feeling much better but for awhile I was getting pretty severe migraines. That accompanied with the fact that food was unappealing left me feeling pretty tired. I don't know if it's because this is my fourth or because I'm a bit older but I've definitely needed more rest during the first trimester than I ever have before. This baby was a bit of a surprise but our family is delighted.  My excitement about once again experiencing the journey of pregnancy, delivery, and the newborn stage keeps growing and growing...much like my stomach and thighs. :) 

Color Absorption Flowers

Recently, I've been seeing lots of pins about  cotton rounds and color absorption. It such a fun idea I can see way it's been so popular. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was something I had to try it with my kids. They love using eye droppers and mixing colors. We decided to use buttons and ribbons to turn our dyed cotton rounds into flowers. 

Small Graces

The last couple of weeks have been jammed pack full of baseball/t-ball activities. This is both our boys first year so it's been an interesting experience for me. I never played as a kid - even in gym class I usually found a way to opt out. Jeremy, however, comes from a long line of baseball/softball players. He's excited to share this experience with the kids. Both him and and his dad are volunteering as assistant coaches and I think they are just excited about the practices as the boys.

While I never had much interested in playing baseball. The Sandlot is one of my favorite movies and Mini Man always makes me think of Smalls. He's got the big eyes, a charming personality, and a flair for drama.
