OK, I cannot believe I’m writing this post.  Forgive me, but I’ve been keeping a BIG secret from y’all. I’m so excited to finally share the news with you–Baby Fannin #2 is due in March!!!!!!!!

Baby #2 Pregnancy Announcement Baby #2 Pregnancy Announcement Baby #2 Pregnancy Announcement Baby #2 Pregnancy Announcement Baby #2 Pregnancy Announcement

Dress: c/o Draper James–non-maternity// Chauncey’s Shirt: Old Navy  // Chauncey’s Shorts: Old Navy  Kane’s Shirt: Carter’s (long-sleeve version) // Kane’s Shorts: Carter’s


We’re all over the moon!  Kane is very happy to finally be getting the baby he’s asked for forever. He doesn’t quite understand, however, why it’s taking so long. He frequently asks, “One more bedtime?!”haha

I’m just so thankful to be able to experience pregnancy one more time. I’m trying to cherish every moment. My bump seems to be growing at a faster rate this time around, but I love being able to lay my hand on my rounded tummy. Kane says, “It’s SO big, mom!”

It’s nice being over the first trimester hump.  Hopefully my energy starts picking back up soon:) Just keep us in your prayers that everything goes well.

So what does this mean for the blog? This little space will continue on as it always has. As of now, I’m mixing some maternity clothes in with my non-maternity clothes. Thankfully oversized shirts are on trend right now. I’ll be linking the non-maternity version of any maternity pieces so everyone can still shop the looks. In fact, my first look wearing maternity jeans is coming to the blog later this week, but I doubt you’d know they were maternity if I hadn’t told you.


Also, I cannot say enough great things about my friend Cheyenne from Wildflower Photography. Cheyenne is a Lexington, Kentucky portrait and wedding photographer. I’ve watched her grow since she first started her photography business, and I’ve fallen in love with her work. Not only does she produce amazing photos, but she’s very affordable!  She was wonderful with Kane, too–Kane was so excited and running around a little wild.haha

In fact, if you live in the area, Cheyenne is currently offering fall mini sessions. Be sure to like her Facebook page and Instagram to stay up to date on all of her offerings, mini sessions, and any specials!


Nice to meet you!
