Being that this is my second child, it is really easy to be more lax about things that you were so adamant about with the first child. In an effort to make Hendrix’s arrival just as special as his big sister’s, I sat down this weekend and crafted a baby hospital door wreath as unique as his name.
Holy smokes! Has it been 9 months already?! J/K, I have felt everyday of these 9 months being pregnant with this boy, haha! This last trimester has brought on a lot of cool things though. It felt appropriate to use my love of BYRDEES to reveal my son’s name. Cool clothes+Cool name seemed to make sense.
Currently I am “hunkered down” in my house in Houston as hurricane Harvey makes his way though the Gulf Coast. All is well and I am even afforded some time to get blogging done (thank God for electricity!) I have been wanting to make my two year old daughter Camilla more a part of the preparations for her baby brother’s arrival in 5 weeks. I thought it would be a great idea for her to make some artwork for his room.
It was important to Cameron and I to do something fun with Cami this summer because it was going to be our last real opportunity for it to be our little family of three. This weekend and throughout the 4th of July week we are headed to South Padre Island and I am thrilled to be spending time with the family on the beach. I am preparing for our 6 hour drive with these 7 super easy toddler-friendly DIY road trip activities to keep Cami’s hands and mind busy.
This year was Cameron’s big 3-0 and I surprised him with a trip to Italy. Most birthday surprises are meant to be awesome, like a vacay to Italy…One surprise that was not awesome for him was what seemed like the morning he turned 30, his back started hurting. With old man river tossing and turning on my left, and my growing baby causing me some serious lower back discomfort, we knew it was time to look for a new mattress.
