Our sweet boy made his arrival 5 weeks ago! I just looked at the blog to do an update on our little man and realized I must not have hit the "post" or "save" button on when he was born! I kinda remember creating a post in the hospital announcing he was here! If you follow me on Instagram then you've seen your fair share of pics!
No BIRTHDAY is complete without a cupcake! Love the "0" candle!
The beginning of the many story times we will have!
....and now Brooks is 1 month old!! Time is flying!
I hope to post Brooks birth story soon! When I can catch the time to sit and write it!
I have been waiting for this month for forever it seems like! It's our sweet baby boy's BIRTHDAY MONTH!!! Andy and I are so excited to meet our baby Brooks! Today I had my 37 week appointment and am 1cm! I'm glad to know my body knows what it's doing and is right on track! I decided to celebrate Brooks' birthday month by taking my OB's nurses and staff a sweet treat!
Here's a sneak peek at some custom artwork for Brooks' nursery painted by the very talented Dondee Hicks at Artist Tree!
Large canvas for above his crib, hospital door hanger, front door hanger, growth chart, and garment bag for coming home outfit!
Andy and I spent last weekend at Carillon Beach for our Babymoon! We had such a fun time relaxing, eating, enjoying the pool, and relaxing some more!
A couple of our favorite places to eat are FIREFLY in Panama City Beach and our new favorite is brunch at Great Southern in Seaside in 30A! The Bacon Pecan Waffles were amazing!
...and when we got home from the beach.. OUR 2nd NEPHEW WAS BORN!! Meet Leo Alexander!
And proud big brother Logan! Can yall believe how much he's grown?
I can't believe it's been 3 whole months since I've blogged but hopefully I'll be blogging more once my sweet baby arrives!
I can't believe that I am 21 weeks and 3 days pregnant with our sweet miracle baby Brooks! Only 18 weeks and 4 days to go!! Eek!! Andy and I are so excited to meet our precious boy!
The bump is definitely showing now and I couldn't be more excited to show it off!
This past week was my BIRTHDAY WEEK!! Andy Candy and I spent the weekend in Atlanta shopping for Brooks :) We found our furniture at Georgia Baby and Kids in Norcross, right outside of Atlanta! Our friend David Hussey works there and was SO helpful in helping us choose the right furniture for our space and helped my "visions" come true! I was unexpectedly surprised by finding our bedding there as well! I was going to go with a different company but after looking at HUNDREDS of bedding samples and fabric swatches, I settled on a sweet neutral color palette for our boy!
Who wants to know which furniture set we decided on? It's a new piece and a famous celebrity and his wife just bought it a couple weeks ago from David. I'll give you a hint.. "Girl, I ain't gunna tell you again! You betta' stop smackin' dat gum!"
The Brixy Haven collection in White. Now the picture doesn't do this justice, in person it's a "washed white/cream" not bright white :) We are changing all the hardware to GOLD, as his nursery will be accented in gold :)
We also added the linen upholstery on the ends as shown in the following color. This Silo color is very pretty but is actually darker in person.
As far as the bedding goes, it's a surprise until the nursery reveal!
We stopped at BUYBUYBaby for the first time... We loved it! Andy couldn't look at anything baby related for a few days after our trip! His mind was totally blown. Here's a before and after!
I was totally pumped to FINALLY find our Pack n Play! I had my little heart set on the Winslet pattern and it's not sold in stores and is selling out online... But God knew it was my birthday and I really wanted this pattern.. They had ONE left! I searched the boxes on the shelf even though they didn't have a Winslet on display... And FOUND IT! I was so excited and Andy was glad he didn't have to keep hearing me talk about it :)
If you have a potty training boy how funny are these! Brooks will have some of these for sure :)
One last thing... Run, don't walk to your nearest Easter aisle and grab all you can of these new Sweetos! They are only here for a limited time and are SO good!! Yall can thank me later ;)
We are so excited about the arrival of our sweet baby BOY💙
His name has been picked and is Jeremiah Brooks and we will call him Brooks :)
Enjoy a few pics of our gender reveal party!

A HUGE thank you to my fabulous momma who is the best party planner ever! Thank you to all of our friends and family who came and celebrated with us! We are so excited about our sweet Jeremiah Brooks and can't wait to start spoiling him!
