Welcoming a baby…

We finally hit the halfway mark in this pregnancy and I’m a little shocked at how fast it is going! Finding out the gender is definitely one of my favorite parts.  Not just because of the gender, but also because the ultrasound is so special to see.  I love seeing how everything is forming, down to the chambers in the heart.  Listening to that sweet little heart beat while it pumps away is the most comforting thing.  I crave that, as I have mourned the absence of it with many of my close friends and family.  My heart always goes out to them.

Thankfully everything is looking great so far, and I couldn’t love this sweet babe any more!  M and V have been casting their votes on gender for months, and it has been pretty split.  That’s how Brian and I have felt also.  We will take what we get and be so happy about it! So far all three of my pregnancies have been very different from each other so it’s hard to predict based on that.  Doesn’t stop us from speculating though 🙂

Ok, enough lollygagging! Come end of April we are so excited to welcome a baby….

GIRL!

Yes, a house full of girls! I actually wrote about some of my feelings on being a “girl maker” not too long ago. If you want to read it go HERE

We decided for this reveal to just fully embrace the PINK!  Even Brian haha!  He grew up the only boy with four sisters so he is destined to be surrounded by girls forever.  He is an amazing dad and the girls already battle for his lap space and attention, so I’m not sure how he will fit another one in there.  I have faith he will figure it out 🙂 Just look how he juggles everything now!

P.S. He’s such a good sport for letting me dye his hair pink haha what a guy!

My talented friend Corrie Butler took these for us and she made it so fun! She just let us be our goofy selves and captured our chaos perfectly.  She is wonderful!View More: http://corriebutlerphotography.pass.us/poulsen-gender-revealView More: http://corriebutlerphotography.pass.us/poulsen-gender-reveal

We are so excited, and feel very blessed to have another sweet girl joining our family.  I also feel so blessed to have your love and support! I have been humbled by your kind words.  I’m just feeling grateful these days! Thank you for everything.

At Home with Natalie

Hey! I’m Natalie! Author of AtHomeWithNatalie.com and I’m so excited to be hopping
over here and sharing on Savanah’s blog today about a fun party project I’ve been working on!
I’m so inspired and encouraged by the way she shares her motherhood on her blog and social media!
I discovered her through Instagram and have been following along ever since!
Thankful for her and the amazing community I’ve found through blogging.

I’m a wife and mama to four little ones and a party girl at heart!
I love to make our house a home, do DIY projects and cook yummy food.
I love gathering people together and building community.
My love language is creating magical moments for my friends and family to experience and feel loved and appreciated!

Natalie-Party Course

I live in South Carolina with my husband of almost 9 years and our four kids.  Sophia, Sienna, Micah and Asher.
I first started blogging soon after I had my first daughter.
I loved having a space where I could share our family life and my creative ideas!
This was a cardboard castle I made for my daughters’ Storybook Princess birthday party
and it only cost me $4! Now she’s all grown up and we are deep in Shopkins obsession. I don’t get it. haha.

HANDBOOK GRAPHIC

I wrote this Course for the girl who loves being creative and has a passion for building community.
It’s for the girl who feels like she doesn’t have enough
time, money or energy to create the special moments she wants.
It’s for the girl who is a party planning pro but loves
picking up new tricks and getting party inspiration!
My goal is for you to walk away feeling encouraged and excited!

My blog has become our family’s main income and it has been amazing doing something
I’m passionate about and love! I’m probably off soaking up my sweeties, avoiding laundry,
selling totes, rearranging furniture, dreaming up the next get together and overgramming.
I’m passionate about helping others start and grow as bloggers and
even wrote a Blogging E-Course that includes everything I’ve learned and done to get to where I am today.
We are choosing creative, family centered, faith filled and joyful living even with the crazy.
I strive to celebrate motherhood and share that on my blog!

Preschool Graduation

I’m always surprised at how fast time flies. You’d think I could come to expect it by now, but it still catches me off guard.  My little Myla has now officially graduated from preschool and is heading to Kindergarten next year! Crazy.  Part of me feels like she has been a teenager her whole life, and the other part still wants to carry her around on my hip everywhere I go.  She is charming, witty, intelligent, adorable, etc… I really could go on forever. I’m a fan.  So grateful to have this little babe in my life!

She asked me to make her “a b c” cookies for her last day as VIP so we came up with these.  Her requests are getting more and more labor intensive, haha, but she is worth it, right…?
