my baby boy is nine weeks today. how is time already fleeting so quickly with this precious little man. motherhood...it is harder and better and more special then i could have ever imagined it to be. what a gift it is. this precious little baby is laid in your arms and you are responsible to care, to protect, to raise, to love, and to eventually let go as they become the person god created them to be. i am honored, humbled, and forever grateful that i get the gift of being jude's mama. i am working on writing my birth story, but here are some pictures of my favorite little man from his first week of life....

so thankful for my bestie lisa from brightside photography. she did an amazing job capturing this precious moment in our lives. i will cherish these pictures forever. i am so overwhelmed with love for this sweet baby boy that i haven't even laid eyes on yet.
i am understanding the love of a mama now. it's an overwhelming, deep, and breathtaking love.
counting the moments till jude wes is in my arms.

if moments in time could be frozen...this is one i would choose.
us...celebrating 5 years of marriage and our firstborn on the way. what a precious time this. i am feeling so blessed and oh so happy. i have an amazing husband and best friend. he is more then i deserve. i am so anxious to see him be a daddy to our son. what a precious gift from god. there are some big, exciting, and life changing days ahead for us, but i am savoring these last moments when it is just "us." the quiet moments, shared conversations in coffee shops, and the last few date nights before we become the three of us.

here are a few snap shots from my baby shower. a big thank to amazing friend Lisa who took all these pictures. my mom and mother-in-law did an amazing job. we went with a vintage feel with lots of chalkboards, a different china plate at each setting, and lots of mason jars. my dad did an amazing job with the center pieces. all of the flowers came from his garden.
on the menu was a salad bar, fresh fruit, and my favorite breads. i have so many favorite desserts that we decided to have lots of options...sugar cookies, payday bars, oatmeal cream pies, strawberry cake, coffee cake, and lemon cookies. yummy!
this was such a special day for me. i felt so loved and special. i can't wait for jude to meet all the amazing people i have in my life.

one of the best parts of being pregnant is dreaming about my baby boy. what will he look like? what will his personality be like? i find myself thinking about him all the time. dreaming...praying...hoping...worrying...a mix of emotions that must come with being a mama. i've also been dreaming and planning my baby boy's nursery. these are three of my favorite rooms. jude's room will be a mix of the three. my wonderful dad is getting ready to paint this week. i can't wait to see it all come together.

i love summer. friday nights in the summer are always extra fun. this past friday we spent some time with our best friends who also happen to be having a baby. i can't tell you how fun it is to have a pregnant best friend. we both have baby on the brain 24/7 so it works perfectly! we had dinner at the b-spot, which has amazing burgers. and of course being pregnant and all, who can resist ice cream on a warm summer night. i am so cherishing this summer and enjoying every moment of being pregnant with my sweet baby boy.

i am a little behind on my posting, but this is me at 27 weeks last sunday. i can't believe how fast the time is going. i am still feeling great, but waking up super early. baby jude likes to wake mama up at 6am with some strong kicks, but i love it. i am getting anxious to see what he looks like and what his personality will be. i am busy working on things for my baby shower, and enjoying these last 12 weeks of being pregnant.
hope you are having a wondering weekend!
