Two Months...


Is it June still?  For me it is!  My sweet June has been lighting up our lives with pure JOY.   She has her feisty moments, but definitely the good days out weigh the frustrating ones.  Ohhhh....the ups and downs of parenthood!  It's a tough job, but this is what keeps us going...


her coos and ahhs...



her foot in the air during feedings...



her sweet face...



her music time with Papa...



her yawns...




taking her on little field trips...




lots of kisses from mommy...




 peaceful sleeping...



arching her back...




the many nights she falls asleep on Papa's chest...



looking at us like we don't know what we are doing...



her letting us eat out...



celebrating her life...




she turned two months on Sunday, can't wait to see what this month has in store...

My June. . .











Born 6/17/2014 @ 2:16am
7lbs 10.4oz 19.5in


She's here!!  June Mare Archie has finally arrived!  God couldn't have sent me anything more perfect.  After 20 hours of labor, she was born by C-Section.  Not what I imagined for my birth story, and I fought for as long as I could, but in the end June's life was most important.  She's here and my life as I knew it has changed forever.  





Happy July!!!!

Tuesday Baby Update. . .



40 weeks today!!!!  I can't believe it!  She's due today!  I'm at the finish line, but she's not here yet!  I had a feeling she would grace us with a late arrival, but you never can be sure.  The day is still young!  I'm really anxious now...waiting to see her face for the first time.  Her room is ready besides a few things that need to be added and organized (need a rug), her clothes are all washed and folded, carseat is in the car, and my hospital bag is packed.  It's time. . .let's go little girl!  Enjoy the peek into her special little room.

Pray for a uneventful labor and delivery and a beautiful healthy baby girl.  I can't wait to introduce her to you!





Stay tuned. . .

Tuesday Baby Update. . .

I'm 36 weeks today, 9 months!!!!  Wow!!!!  We have 28 more days until she arrives.  Getting a bit nervous and anxious, but trying to stay calm and not stress.  Don't need her to come early!

I know I've been really slacking on posting, but it's either I draw a blank on what to post about or I'm just dead tired.  My body is going through so much right now, sometimes I cannot even focus.  With the baby showers simmering down, we can really just be quiet these last weeks.  Enjoy our time together, go see a couple of movies, visit with friends, and just relax before our new chapter begins.

So, what's been going on since my last baby update?  Well, I had my last two baby showers which were both Fabulous!  Paris themed with all the trimmings (see photos here).  My girls and my mom's friends did an awesome job!!!  Marlin and I took our pregnancy photos at the beach and completed all our projects for the nursery. Check out the Before & After photos here.  Now, all we need to do is clean and organize which shouldn't be too bad.  Oh, and we celebrated the husband's birthday last week with dinner at Fig &Olive.

Cravings. . .nothing new!  Now, I just want cold cold beverages a lot preferably lemonade, Capri Sun, or pineapple ginger juice from my fav Jamaican spot.   I've had Navy Bean and Kale soup on my mind for a couple of months now, so will try this recipe this week.  Should be really tasty!  Been on a sweet kick which I'm really trying to keep under control.  Sugar is not your friend, makes me so sleepy after I eat it.

Here are some recent photos. . .
