My first week with Blaire as a newborn was such a blur. I was so tired. My body was drained from my C Section. We had endless visitors. This time, everything is different. Whether it’s because my recovery is easier since I didn’t have to have a C Section. Or because we’ve had less visitors stopping by. Or because I’m getting more sleep at night than I was with Blaire. Or… if it’s because having a three year old (#threenager) at home means our newborn seems like the easy one. ;)

I am SO excited to make two Easter baskets this year. I’ve always focused on the girly items and now I get to find cute boy things, too! I found cute little wire baskets in the Bullseye’s Playground (aka the Dollar Spot) at Target for $3. They’ll be super easy to repurpose after Easter… because you can only do so much with a basket that says Happy Easter! on it.
In Target’s seasonal Easter section they had little Easter eggs filled with Shopkins, bunny bubbles and princess chapstick. So I have to throw some of those in Blaire’s basket, too. ;)
I am so, so happy to announce the arrival of our sweet baby boy, Benjamin Robert. He was born March 21, at 3:50 a.m. weighing 7lbs 4oz and 20″ long. I actually couldn’t believe I was in labor with him because he was a week and a half early, but we are so happy he decided not to make us wait any longer! He looks just like his big sis, except for that dark hair.
Woo hoo! I’m full term. I can’t believe it! Baby boy can come any time now. Well… he could wait about a week, give/take a few days.
Reason 1: Our final baby stuff shipment will be here Tuesday.
Reason 2: My temp at work starts Wednesday, so it’d be nice to train with her for a few days before ditching out for 12 weeks.
We finally have the nursery put together. It’s is just what I pictured! Blaire is always in there playing with her babies and reading them books. It’s so sweet. If you’re following me on Insta, then you’ve seen some sneak peeks on my story. Welllll… I included a few more of them below. ;) Fun fact, I’m wearing the same top in my 37 week picture that I wore in my 37 week picture with Blaire. Soooo I thought it was only right to include my 37 week picture from my first pregnancy at the bottom of this post.

You guys. It’s March! … and that means it’s baby month. I am SO in love with our maternity pictures. We got so, so, so lucky with the weather that day. Who knew we would be blessed with a 70° day, in February, here in the midwest?! We had originally picked a different day, but when we saw the weather forecast, our amazing photographer squeezed us in.
