Life, It’s Better With Friends (& Babies!)


This weekend we put on our party hats and headed into the city. Our friends Robb and Courtney are welcoming their second baby to the world, a baby girl in June, and we couldn’t be more excited to share in this journey with them! Let’s just say Meg and Courtney have had lots to chat about and compare (like baby bellies!). We were spoiled with fresh burgers and veggies off the grill along with homemade ice cream (served in the cutest little mason jars)!

Life sure is better when shared with friends! ;)

Handmade decorations in pink and purple… definitely the “cutest” BBQ we’ve ever attended (and Courtney claims she’s not that crafty)! It was the perfect way to welcome their little girl and celebrate with friends.

Thanks for spoiling us with great food and great friendship! We love you both and are still considering that arranged marriage if you are interested! ;)

Blue or Pink? Moments That Change Everything

This weekend we find out if we are having a boy or girl. It’s been a crazy week and one that has barely allowed us any free time to actually process what this weekend will mean… but, this is one of those moments that changes everything.

When we first found out we were pregnant we found ourselves constantly saying; “We just want a healthy baby”. But one night as we were laying in bed Cale revealed that he was just saying that because it’s the “politically correct” thing to say. In all honesty he really wants a boy.

So… since then we have been saying we really want a boy. :)

But, we just checked the Chinese Gender Predictor (that is over 700 years old) and it says we are having girl?! All I can think about is that part at the end of Sleeping Beauty when the two fairy Godmothers keep changing her dress… “Make it blue… No, make it Pink!”. Does anyone else know what I’m talking about?

I have no doubt we will welcome whatever gender God has given us, but the battle wages on in my head. What is this Little Noodle (that is what Cale calls it) inside of me? Ultimately, we are excited to know either way. 24 weeks and counting!

Here’s to a weekend full of BIG events! ;)
