Hello, 2018! Yes, I know we’re well into 2018, but this is my first post here since the holidays and I’m so happy to finally share why I’ve taken a brief and unintended hiatus on the blog.
I’M PREGNANT! Today marks week 16 so our bundle is the size of an avocado. We feel beyond blessed, but this little babe has kind of kicked my butt for the last few months. I took the time to rest and take care of myself while attempting to keep up with my two little rascals. Now that the first trimester is behind me, I’m slowly feeling less nauseous and fatigued, but I still can’t help but hit the pillow as soon as the kids are in bed. So, alas, blog projects, along with laundry, cleaning and anything else productive or social have mostly been put on hold.
We found out early on the sex of the baby and we were thrilled to share with Sloane and Teddy that they would have a new baby brother this August! Henry, James, Security and Heaven (hmmm…?) are some top names for the baby if the kids had their say. 🙂 We have a few leading contenders, but will probably wait to meet the little dude before we know just the right moniker for him.
As my energy comes back, I can’t wait to share updates on our pregnancy journey and baby prep along with recipe inspiration, home decor projects and spring beauty and style obsessions.
Thanks for your patience while things have been on hold here on The Style Du Jour. It feels good to be back!
Proof that I don’t edit my photos. Exhibit A: Random, disorganized stuff collecting in my office back there.
I’ll get to that organizing in the second trimester! 🙂
Congrats to you all!!!! We are just two weeks apart! Glad you’re feeling better. The fatigue kicked my butt too and I just got my energy back! Will be thinking about you during the remainder of your pregnancy.
Thanks so much, Katie! So excited for you, too! Glad to hear your energy is coming back. I think I’ve turned the corner, too (phew!) Hope you’re enjoying getting ready for your Little Guy!
