Look who is 2 months old today!

I can’t believe our pretty little lady is already 2 months old!




We love you so much, Emma Bobbi.  XOXO


Pictures of my girl

Hey guys! 

Emma is 12 days old as of today! I would eventually like to write a post on her birth story, but for now I thought I would share a few pictures of our beautiful little girl. ❤

Pat and I are completely in love with her.

30 days to go!

It is now 30 days until Emma’s due date (although things are looking more and more like she may be a February baby, rather than March)!  

I had another growth scan done on Tuesday and ultrasound tech and Dr. both still believe she is measuring closer to 40 weeks than 35 1/2 – they think she is close to 8 pounds already. I will have another growth scan done in a week and a half – they want to closely monitor the size of her shoulders, head, and belly to make sure that delivery won’t be too difficult.

My blood pressure has still been consistently high so I now have an appointment with the doctor every few days, as well as a blood pressure machine for at home. I had to do a 24 hour urine test yesterday (there was protein found in my urine at my last appt.) and those results won’t be back until next week but blood work that I had done on Tuesday came back perfect (thankfully!).

The doctor would just like to keep everything stable with my blood pressure and Emma and then we will make a decision of what to do at 37 weeks (which is in just a little over a week .. and also my birthday!).

My sister and her boyfriend were over all last weekend to help up set up everything we received at the shower, wash all of her clothes, and decorate her room.

Here are a few pictures of Emma’s room so far:


We are still waiting for her crib and glider to be delivered.


I can’t believe we are so close to meeting our girl!  XOXO

A look back at 2016

2016 was both one of the greatest and worst years of my life.   

In May, we celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary.

In July, we found out I was pregnant after just a few months of trying and couldn’t be more happy. We first shared the news with my sister almost right away and a few weeks later with my mom.

In August, we finally sold our house! There were a few disappointments along the way, and we were really upset that we lost several houses we liked a lot while waiting for our house to be sold. As it turned out, things do happen for a reason and we later found our house now which had everything we ever wanted and more. We also told Pat’s parents about their new grandchild on the way.

In September, we found out we are having a GIRL!

All these things made 2016 one of the best and most memorable years ever.


Then came October, which was hands down the most difficult month of my life. We watched our cute little boy get very sick, very fast. It was heartbreaking to realize that we didn’t have long with him and to not be able to do anything to help him get better. We had to make the extremely difficult decision to put him to sleep and it was absolutely the worst day of my life, as he was our first baby and nothing short of a child to Pat and I for almost 11 1/2 years. While Emma will definitely know of Bosco (and have lots and lots of pictures of him), it still breaks my heart that she will never meet him or come to love him like Pat and I did.



While I still am and always will be heartbroken over Bosco, I know we have so much to look forward to in 2017, specifically in March. XOXO
