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.

Perfect Plaid

 

I love wearing dresses! However, most of the time I can’t wait to get back into my sweats as soon as possible.  Finding a dress and shoe combo that I want to wear all day long is gold! This plaid shirt dress and boots from Piper Street Shop are just that.  I’m totally loving the details on these boots.  Also, I can comfortably wear them running errands, helping in my daughter’s classroom, carrying my babe all over, you name it! Pretty sweet.

You will be seeing much more from Piper Street on here in the future, which is fun for all! If you haven’t already shamelessly stalked their cute stuff, you should get on that.  You won’t be sorry.  They come out with new releases all the time too, so get ready for Christmas all year long!

Sorry I have been a little MIA! So many fun things going on, I’m figuring out how to do it all and not have my children starve or my house be condemned haha.  If you have any tips or great books on how to balance life, I’d love to know them! It’s really a bummer that I have to learn everything in life from experience.  If I could just glean all the amazing knowledge from others, I would save myself a lot of time haha! Maybe I’ll learn how to do that some day ha but until then…another white board to-do list it is! 🙂
