28 Week Bump Update



It’s here! The third trimester – aka crunch time. I am THRILLED to welcome a baby girl into our lives in March. We are over the moon and already feel like she’s with us between the moving around and feeling her kick everyday to the doctors appointments becoming more and more frequent.

My ultimate hope for Halle is that she will be kind, caring, and loving. People ask me all of the time “do you hope she’s a girly girl who loves clothes?” I don’t care if she likes clothes or not, or if she prefers dance over field hockey, but I hope and pray daily that she is a joy to others and that she loves Christ from an early age. 

She is already such a joy in our lives and I pray she lights up a path wherever she goes. I want her to know that kindness is the post important quality and what you wear does not matter. That you can do anything you set your mind to and to take a leap of faith even when it is scary. 

Mom and Dad will be right there to catch you, sweet angel.

Baby It’s (not really) Cold Outside

Temps in Alabama were crazy for Christmas, but we are all used to that by now. We headed down to Alabama last Thursday and spent time with family and had a wonderful time. Now, to get back in the swing of things and take down the Christmas tree-sad. I’m currently sitting by the tree soaking up the last few days of Christmas decorations all while wearing my Work the Metal This Girl Loves Christmas t-shirt. 

I wore this outfit before we left and it was cozy and kept me warm. The temperatures this week will be back down so I’ll take advantage of this go to poncho to cover up my 28 week bump!
