Today I'm SO excited to share some very exciting news!!!!! As you can see from these photos from our time in Florida, baby number two is on the way and we could not feel more blessed. This little baby (who already is kicking up a storm) was a BIG surprise!!! It took me a year (and one round of clomid) to get pregnant with Isla Rose so I never would've imagined I would get pregnant with my next baby so quickly!

When Drew and I went to Italy together in January we had a 10 hour plane ride to discuss all sorts of topics. One of those topics was planning when we would start trying for our next baby. We both decided shortly after Isla's first birthday would be perfect timing. That way they would be close in age but would give me a little bit of a break between pregnancies (I get super sick, morning sickness all. day. long.). Little did I know that during that conversation, I was already pregnant!!!!!

I only had one period between Isla and this baby and when the next month rolled around I was surprised I didn't have one. I thought maybe my cycle was still all messed up from nursing and hormones. I mentioned to Drew while we were walking down a street in Florence that I was late so he dragged me across the town square to a pharmacy. I kept telling him he was reading way too much into this and that it's pretty normal to have random periods after you have a baby because your hormones are all out-of-whack. He insisted we buy a test, I thought he was crazy!

After we bought the test I remember thinking there was absolutely no way I was pregnant. I actually forgot we even had it until Drew reminded me to take it a few days later. So I took the test and sure enough, I got a big fat positive. I literally was in shock! I forgot to even show Drew the test or tell him... I just rushed over to my phone and called Emily to tell her what had just happened. Drew was wondering why I was more excited to tell my sister than him. Whoops, I guess he's pretty important!

I'm not going to lie, I'm super nervous to have two babies so close together in age but I know they will be the best of friends and it will all be worth it.

It's crazy to think that this time last year I was pregnant with Isla and now I'm pregnant AGAIN! We can't wait to meet this little baby who is already so loved and is getting pretty lucky with the best big sister and fur brother ever!


I always get tons of questions about the camera I use, especially my camera for capturing family moments. I use the Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR with the EF 50mm f/1.4 lens and the EOS 5D Mark II with the EF 85mm f/1.2L II lens. These photos were taken with my Rebel and EF 50mm lens (it's way lighter than my EOS 5D Mark II and it has wifi!). I can't wait to continue documenting my pregnancy and fun life memories with my Canon cameras!! Stay tuned for more updates along with some of my how-to's when it comes to photography and capturing special moments.
