Forgive me if it takes a little while to get back in the groove after my blogging hiatus. I have lots to share!

1. Thank you all so much for your congratulations on our little one! We're unbelievably excited! And yes, I'll definitely be blogging about the pregnancy and keeping you posted week by week. Those of you who aren't baby lovers (or just don't care about pregnancy/parenthood/etc) it might be time to stop following along now. But, you know, you were warned way back when...


2. In the past few weeks Mr. Fix-It and I both celebrated birthdays. There was something extra special about our birthdays this year - certainly knowing it's the last year you'll celebrate without a little on in your life is BIG. But also, last year, when I turned 29, I told Mr. Fix-It the only thing I wanted was to be pregnant by my 30th birthday. It just seems so amazing that a year passed since then AND we're exactly where we hoped to be. (The contingency plan was to start puppy shopping.)


3. This weekend we got serious about making room for baby. Our condo is a 2 bed, 2 bath and we pride ourselves on using our space as efficiently as possible. We were previously using our guest room closet for storage. Knowing that wouldn't work much longer (you should see how much stuff we've already been gifted!) we got crackin'.

I tore apart the closet.

Mr. Fix-It built this.
(He didn't earn his name for nothin'.)


4. Last night I took a few minutes to frame baby's first photo. I just couldn't resist!


What's new with you?

  1. It's nice to hear that a two-bed house can fit everything in all right! Our house is two-bed too (though the second bedroom also doubles as my office), and I worry that if we got pregnant before we move to a new place that there would be no room for baby!

  2. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you'll share how you found out you were pregnant and how you told Mr. Fix-It... those are my favorite pregnancy posts! :)

  4. The sonogram picture says 24 weeks, but I know that sometimes is just a random figure they put in, so are you really 6 months along?

    Either way, congratulations!!
