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. šŸ™‚

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 to the whole gang! It is certainly an exciting time. I appreciate you always being sensitive to pregnancy loss – many are not. I have two grown boys but experienced a 26-week loss in between them. It’s something you carry with you.

    You look great, so happy and healthy. And I am appreciative of the advanced planning of content. šŸ™‚ Enjoy the second half of your pregnancy – July will be here before you know it.

  2. Sally, Congrats and blessing. So happy for you. Children are such a blessing. I have 6 boys, 12 grandchildren and am expecting the 9th great grandchild in June. Love to you and your growing family. Donna
