Hi.

I'm documenting my journey to motherhood while sharing my favorites and tips along the way. I'm so glad you're here. 

100 days until baby!

100 days until baby!

The beginning of my pregnancy seemed to drag. I couldn't believe how slowly those early weeks ticked by. I think this was due to how sick I felt and our horribly long {even by Minnesota standards} winter. It seemed like I was going to be throwing up in a dark, snowy, icy land forever. Alas, spring and trimester two did arrive-- and for both I am immensely grateful. 

As I approach the end of my second trimester {which is so surreal to believe!} I feel like the days are now flying. 

Last week, my friend Kimi of Oh, Hello Photo! and I hung out for a bit at her studio and she snapped some photos in honor of 100 days remaining in my pregnancy. 

In some ways I feel like she'll be here any minute, in other ways August feels forever away. I am grateful for so many things besides feeling better, and nice weather. Mostly, I am so excited for her to arrive. I cannot wait to see her face, watch her open her eyes for the first time, and share her name with our friends and family {we are 99% sure on a first and middle name, hooray!}.

I've been keeping a "to-do before baby" list on Trello and I've got a few immediate shopping items. The biggest being her car seat and stroller. We have two showers coming up, and once those are over, I'll know a few more items to buy. I'm trying my best not to over shop, but it's hard. The girl things are so, so cute. Ultimately, I know she doesn't need much, and what she does need I can mostly provide just by being her mama.
