I counted this morning, and I’ve taken 8 trips to the West Coast (or beyond) since I’ve been pregnant. Weird to think I won’t be stepping foot on an airplane again until early summer. Will miss this wild city and second home, but looking forward to hunkering down on the east coast for a bit.

Had @analogjakob snap a quick maternity pic during our annual family photo shoot to memorialize this last, long awaited addition to our family.

You are looking at the new mayor of second grade! Everly wrote and delivered her own speech in front of her second grade peers about why she would make a good leader and the things she felt she could do to make their grade better. Tonight the second grade teachers sent out an email with the vote count and Everly was chosen as mayor! Brent and I both participated in student government in our school years so we are both trying to claim credit 😂 But seriously- this was all her and I’m just tickled for my girl. 💪🏻

My first ride on the new @virginamerica RDU>SFO flight. SO excited to say ✌🏻out to United for good. Their direct flight into San Francisco was the only thing keeping me loyal. This is also my last flight before baby arrives. Weird to think it will be 6+ months before I take this trip again. Coming for you @zendesk!

My mama has kept me motivated to be her walking buddy in the early mornings. We get in a brisk 2.5 miles before I start work for the day and it has given me so much energy in this last trimester (and is helping me sleep better at night). We chat about life and family and brainstorm ideas on everything from home projects to business ideas. I’m loving this time with her and hope I can keep it up all the way to my due date.

I saved so much stuff from when Everly and Arlo were babies because I always knew we weren’t done. For years it sat in our basement, like an anchor for my sadness, collecting dust. When Tash got pregnant with August, I could hear God whispering “give it away” and for months I battled with the thought as it felt like releasing it all meant giving up. But as the months passed, I realized it wasn’t giving up, but rather, letting go. Having faith meant releasing the white knuckle grip I held on the physical remnants of a baby in my house and it was one of the healthiest things I could have done for my mental health. Along the way, I filled many of those dark, sad places with new memories with my Godson. I held his sweet body in little pants Arlo wore, and watched him eat some of his first bites of solid food in the same high chair my two did. As my own pregnancy progressed with this little girl and August has grown into toddlerhood, Natasha started whispering to me “When you’re ready, I have it all here waiting for you.” It took me hitting the 20 week mark before I felt brave enough to accept. And when I did, she sent more than I could possibly need. So many new items in addition to those old ones. I put this little bassinet in our bedroom this week and have tethered myself to a fresh anchor, this one bursting with hope and anticipation.

Brent snapped this gorgeous photo of the girls, at dawn, after a night of tent camping through a torrential rain storm. Couple of tough little gals if you ask me! (I’m not sure I would have lasted all night) #yguides

My first two kids got stylized weekly maternity shoots with thoughtful, lovingly written blog posts. This kid gets a bathroom mirror shot in my pajamas. P.S. We got to see you on another ultrasound today and you’re so perfect. We’re in the home stretch , baby girl. #29weeks #thirdtrimester #pumpkinsmugglin #recoveringblogger

I offered to take the girls somewhere nicer, but they insisted on walking to Snoopy’s for burgers and fries. #mylahandeverly

Stole this one from @natashatashtashie's IG. She was my hot date for the night to celebrate ten years for some sweet friends of ours. Happy anniversary @amareedavis and @ben_davis914! So much love (and amazing music!) in that room tonight.
