One More Heart

pregnancy announcement

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Kevin and I feel immensely blessed and are so excited to share that we’re adding 1 more heart to our growing family. I’m pregnant! We are eternally grateful for this gift of a healthy pregnancy and another baby on the way.

Though this will be our 2nd child, this is my 3rd pregnancy. Please let this be a sliver of hope for any woman reading this who has experienced pregnancy loss. There can be light after heartbreak and you are not alone.

I’ve been waiting so long to share this news with you! Due in early July, I’m 20 weeks along already. I can’t believe we’re halfway there. (The photos in this post were taken a month ago and my bump is 100x larger now. You show a lot earlier in your 2nd pregnancies!!)

Experiencing my 1st trimester during my busiest time of year (holidays!)– while also chasing around a 2 year old– has made this pregnancy fly by. I feel healthy, strong, and ready to be a working mother of 2. Noelle says “big sister” all the time, though I’m not sure she knows what’s about to rock her world. We count our blessings every single day. 🙂

We know the sex, but are keeping it a surprise for most. We can’t wait to introduce our baby to you all!

I’m already prepping summer content for my time off, so send over any recipe ideas! Thank you for sharing this special time with us as we focus on welcoming another bundle of joy. xo

  1. Congratulations on your new little heart. What a beautiful time for your family. Thank you for sharing your back story.

  2. Congratulations to you, Sally!!! I stumbled across your site semi-recently and have quickly become addicted to admiring and baking the yummy goodies you share. We are big fans of your banana cake with browned butter cream cheese frosting.

    I’m commententing not only to congratulate you on this exciting time of growing your family, but also to thank you for your sliver of hope regarding pregnancy loss. I was so saddened to read that you have experienced this heartbreak…we recently lost our baby girl. Thank you for your courage in sharing something so personal, and allowing those of us who can relate to you feel supported by your experience. I understand how painful it is, and I admire that you have maintained a beautiful site for all of us to enjoy amidst it all.

    Baking your recipes makes me (and my family’s tummies!) very happy. Baking has helped me to find purpose and feel myself again. Thank you. God bless you and your sweet family, I wish you a healthy remainder of your pregnancy and delivery, and all the best as your family prepares for your precious little one.

    1. What an amazingly kind comment, Jennifer, thank you so much! I really appreciate all your heartfelt words and am touched that I can support women who have experienced what I have. xoxo

  3. So excited for you and your family!
    A recipe idea…. lemon ricotta pancakes! A restaurant makes them here, and I would love to try some at home.

  4.
