weekly three.

December 15, 2017

This week started out reeeaaaally rough, but I'm so thankful that things are much better now! The uncomfortable aches and pains of full term pregnancy is no joke this time around. I know I will forget about all these things once Asher is here but geeeez, my hips feel like they are breaking! I can't wait to hold him and the waiting to see when he wants to join us is about to kill me. BUT, that's pregnancy. The last month feels like a century. I am thankful that I have Christmas to distract me. I told Peter the other day that we should have all our babies in December because it has been such a sweet distraction. The house is decorated & all the presents are wrapped and ready under the tree. I'm never this prepared!! Nesting and Christmas really do go so well together! We have a very busy weekend full of Christmas fun and I can't wait, hope you have a fun weekend, too. 


One last slice of chocolate pecan pie left over from our community group Christmas party! YUM, thank you very much!!! 

All the presents wrapped and waiting under the tree! 

Curls and legos! I could watch him play all day, it's so relaxing for some reason. Haha, do other moms feel this way?

pregnancy post // month nine.

December 14, 2017

Weeks 33-36
month nine pictures are somewhat better, but we are almost finished and so ready to hold a baby boy in our arms so.... a little grace when it comes to documentation! ;) 

33 weeks: 
  • My left side is pretty much in pain all the time since Asher is mostly pushing on that side. Having a sick toddler to carry around isn't helping either. 
  • My bladder feels like it's the size of a marble!
  • Had our appointment with the Midwife and baby boy is still head down and heart rate was 145. We scheduled our next 2 week appointment and then the everything after that will go to once a week! We also get an extra ultrasound at the next appointment since we are doing the birthing center. 
  • My sweet friends spoiled me with a dinner out and some gifts for Asher. It was fun to have some girl time and celebrate him a little bit!


34 weeks:
  • So. Uncomfortable.
  • Full on waddle is happening now and I look like a big penguin. 
  • Celebrated Thanksgiving and tried to enjoy food as much as I could with little room left. 

35 weeks:
  • No big change, just ready to meet this little guy!
  • Decorating the house (with my mom's help) and trying to take in all the wonderful Christmas memories! Christmas will mean so much more to me now when I look back on pictures with Solomon and my round belly. 
  • Still sick with a cold and Solomon's cold returned, it was a rough week of little sleep and runny noses for both of us. 

36 weeks:
  • We enjoyed Peter's work Christmas party and a nice date night out since Gigi got Solomon to sleep at night! It was a fun night with a mocktail and friends. 
  • Got so much work done in Asher's room, I'm so excited for him to be here soon!!!
  • Drinking a LOT of red raspberry tea and eating my dates in hopes that it will help him come on out. 
  • The pain under my right ribs has subsided since his foot has moved down a lot! I definitely feel like he has dropped this week. 

snowy weekend.

December 13, 2017


We had a perfect little Christmasy snowy weekend and I absolutely loved it! Typically here in the south, we don't get to have a December that feels like Christmas thanks to the weather. T-shirts and holiday parties just don't go together, so I was very happy to be bundled up and watching the snow fall while doing all the Christmas things. 


Watching Solomon's excitement with the snow was pretty adorable too! He loved it so much! He exclaimed SNOW last night when he felt how cold it was outside while getting in the car. Peter laughed and told him it was cold but there was no more snow. I'm hoping we have one more snowfall this winter so he can enjoy it again!!


kisses from momma!!
My mom showed up just in time to take some family photos of us, which I was so thankful for! I also love these cute pictures of Solomon and Gigi. She's so crazy about him!


I love all these pictures of Peter and Solomon playing together!! I don't know if it is the changes coming with baby Asher or Solomon's age right now, or maybe a little bit of both, but he is obsessed with his daddy right now. Which I absolutely love!!! He wants to do everything just like Peter and watches him constantly. It's the sweetest thing and I love watching them love each other. 


When we woke up on Saturday morning to even more snow falling, we knew we had to take Solomon out again to have some fun. We tried to bundle him up a little bit better so he could really enjoy playing. We couldn't find any matching gloves (as you can see in the picture above with one bare hand in his jacket pocket, ha!) so we used daddy's gloves and secured them with mommy's rubber bands. Whatever works, right?? He was happy and it was fun to enjoy the snow a little bit more and then get warm inside with some hot chocolate! 

Our little Eskimo with his yummy and kissable cheeks!!

hymns & hops.

December 12, 2017


We have been wanting to make it to 13 Stripes Brewery for Hymns & Hops for a while now but each month goes by and we haven't made the time. When my mom told me that the December H&H was going to be their one year Christmas celebration, I knew we had to go. It was such a fun night singing songs of worship and fun Christmas songs as well. I can't wait to go again in the spring once the weather is a little bit warmer and Asher will be a couple months old. It will be a fun family event for sure! 

It was nice to have a true December weekend with snow and winter clothes!
This hat on Solomon was so cute, I loved it!!

weekly three.

December 8, 2017

This week has been a busy one, with finishing up Christmas decorations, and still (yes, STILL) fighting a cold in our house. Thankfully Solomon has been sleeping well (praise JESUS!!!) so that has helped a ton with my energy level. We've been working on several projects in the house so we will be ready for Christmas and a new baby. It has been so much fun to celebrate both exciting parts of our year coming together. Having a baby during this time of year definitely has it's perks!! I don't think I'll be able to celebrate Christmas without all the sweet memories of my arms holding my first born and my round belly holding my second born.  It's definitely been a sweet time!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Watching this big boy play while wearing his big boy bag today at the Midwife Center. I love taking him to my appointments and thinking about how he was born downstairs, and hopefully his brother will be born in the same place very soon!

Enjoyed a big pot of chili last night to celebrate the cold weather!! I wonder if we will see any snow tomorrow morning?!?

Feeling the urge to pack Asher's bag for the Birth Center and I thought it was pretty hilarious to compare his to Solomon's bag. I had at least triple everything, so funny!!
