It is officially ONE WEEK of being a family of five!! I seriously can't believe it. How did this happen?! (Don't answer that). Dave had been home for a little under a week before Duncan arrived, so its been a precious week and a half for us as a family.
Little boy Duncan is finally here and he's actually not so little!! He gave us quite the surprise when the nurses weighed him at 9 pounds 5 ounces and 21 inches long! Although I will say, I felt a bit vindicated by his size because I was completely convinced that I was way bigger this pregnancy than with Braden (7lbs 6oz) and Connor (7lbs 10oz), but was told I was measuring on track to have a similar sized baby #3. Yeah tell that to all my new stretch marks!!
It was a beautiful day in the PNW this Easter Sunday. We had so much fun at church this morning and then drove over to my parents' house in Kirkland for Easter egg hunting, relaxing, and a delicious dinner. The boys had a blast playing with their Uncle Jon and Connor gave the cutest Easter prayer at dinner: "thank you for mama and Happy Easter that we get to do today". It was adorable. Love my little family. Happy Easter everyone!
You guys, I got to work with the lovely ladies at Beijos Events down in California on their super cute Easter Playdate sponsored by Pottery Barn Kids. As an artist you always have those random milestones in life where you do something that you're just incredibly proud of. Those times where you get to step out of your comfort zone and do something new and have it just turn out awesome. This was one of those moments for me. And if you read my most recent post on the blog about the Etsy Shop and the process that has been lately, you know how hugely reaffirming that is on my journey as a shop owner.
I recently added these headbands to my shop and they have been such a huge hit! I have been loving making them too. I never really considered myself super girly up until this point in my life...I think finding out we were having a third boy freed me from feeling like I need to justify doing anything girly. I'm going to paint flowers, look at wedding magazines, make flower crowns, paint my nails pink, wear floral print, and just not care. There's enough testosterone in my life to balance it out I think.
