I'm pregnant!!!

Baby 3.0 (soon to have a nickname) is scheduled to arrive just before Lilly's 2nd birthday! (January 21st is the estimated due date) I am 16.5 weeks along on a very different journey than our 2 previous kids but I'm already loving it! We are planning a homebirth with a midwife instead of a hospital birth this time. There are pleanty of reasons why we chose this and maybe I will share them eventually but I will say 100% this is a decision that we are both very comfortable with. My midwife is amazing, we've had one visit with her and have another one with the 2nd midwife in the practice next week. I'll try to start doing a weekly update every week but won't promise anything, it's a bit crazy around here!

The kids are growing like crazy! Landyn's language has taken off and he never stops talking (surpise suprise have you met his Daddy???) Lilly Kate is 18 months old and still a tiny little thing (about 18 pounds) but she is as sharp as a tack and will let you know it! She uses sign language for some of her communication but is using more words everyday.

1 year old!!

Today my sweet baby girl is 1!!!

Dear Lilly,

The day you were born is forever etched in my brain. I'm so proud to call you my daughter. Right before you were born I got really nervous because I was worried that I couldn't love you as much as I loved your big brother Landyn but somehow the moment I laid eyes on you my heart grew and my life forever changed! I love you sweet baby girl and I cannot wait to watch you grow up!

Love, Mommy

About 30 minutes after birth, 6lbs 10oz and 19.5 inches long

1 year old, about 18 pounds and 28 inches tall.
