Third Trimester

Well the third trimester is now here for baby girl. I still can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going by! As more time goes on I feel more and more excited to meet our girl and I just can't wait to see Ollie become a big brother. I am sure there will be challenges with having two kids but I can't wait to see how he does with a baby sister. 

6 months pregnant + a letter to my girl

I seriously cannot believe I am already six months pregnant. This pregnancy is going by so much faster than my last one since I have an 11-month-old to chase after. It also sometimes feels like so much longer that I'll be pregnant because I've been pregnant a lot over the past two years, haha! But I know this time will fly by and so I want to embrace it.

Mini weekend hikes

Now that the winter is finally over we are loving getting outside and going on more adventures! We made a short stop this past weekend to Kettle Morraine while on our way to Madison for Easter. 

Arizona!

Well we officially just took our first family vacation to Arizona! Both Adam and I have always loved traveling and have wanted to make it a part of our kids lives too. He was starting his fellowship in Integrative Medicine which is mostly online, but requires a couple of week-long trips out to Tucson, Arizona to learn from the teachers there. Tucson just happens to be where my grandparents live for half of the year so they generously offered for us to stay with them while Adam was in school! We extended our trip for a few days since we were already heading out there and got to do lots of hiking and sightseeing together before Adam's program started. 

Goal Setting + The New Year

If you guys know me at all, you may know that I have always loved writing lists and constantly setting goals for myself. I am definitely one of those people who makes huge lists all day long and then if I happen to accomplish something that wasn't on any list, I add it just to check it off, ha! Any of you guys do that?! Anyway, I am a pro at writing goals and admittedly, not always so much at following through with every one.

Christmas Tree Farm

For the past three years, Adam and I have made a tradition of going to a Christmas tree farm and cutting down our tree. We have loved doing it, and this year we got to bring Ollie for his first time! We all got bundled up, and headed to a cute little tree farm north of our home in Milwaukee. Of course I couldn't resist plopping Ollie in the rows of trees and snapping some pictures! 

Anniversary Weekend

Well, so it isn't actually our wedding anniversary (that was a couple of months ago!)... but this past saturday was the exact date Adam and I first met five years ago! If I'm being totally honest, I had completely forgotten about the day itself, but Adam has a bit of an advantage with it being the same day as his brother's birthday! Regardless, he made the day sooo special and I was so impressed with him.

Six Months!

Ollie turned six months old this month! I cannot believe how fast time has flown since becoming his mother. I feel like he's somehow always been a part of me and I can't imagine my life without him. Part of the reason why I started this blog is to remember the little things; my favorite things about this period of our lives! Those things are so easy to forget and they're the ones that I always want to come back to and remember. 

Pumpkin Patch

You guys, we seriously love weekends around here! I worked in retail before having Ollie and although I seriously loved my job, I forgot how amazing it was to have FULL weekends with the ones you love! Ever since we had Ollie, Adam and I have made it a priority to take one new adventure per week. Although this sometimes proves to be a bit challenging, we are always glad that we made the goal to begin with, and then continue to follow through each week!
