Birkelo Pruett’s First Year

Happy 1st Birthday to the sweetest, silliest, cutest boy in Texas. What a little adventurous, independent spirit we have grown to love so much. He makes us happier than we could have ever imagined. We taped the day he was born, and luckily I’m quite camera happy, so we had lots of video footage to compile for a “first year” video. It’s mainly special to us, but we wanted to share it with you too. I hope he brings a smile to your face! Happy 1st Birthday, Birk Pruett. We love you so much!

Spring In Bloom

Yesterday was one of those days that I want to bottle up for a rainy day. My best friend (and historic downtown neighbor) walked to the square for snacks at one of our favorite spots and packed down our strollers with necessities for a day out and about. We strolled the neighborhood, making sure to take the side roads with the trees arching over the street, providing shade. We sniffed all of the blooming flowers, found a secret rose garden (truly, it was absolutely gorgeous) and spent the entire day talking and laughing. The babies snoozed on and off and the weather was absolutely perfect. I honestly wish there was a scratch and sniff button and that you could feel the sun shining and the slight cool breeze in the air.   Honestly, it was one of the most beautiful days. The colorful Spring day was exactly what I needed. I am…

Postpartum Styling

Oh, how good it feels to be blogging again! Truly, I did not think I would miss it, as when I slowed down when I became pregnant? I was so incredibly burnt out. I was tired of waking up to take pictures every single day.  So in the last few weeks when I felt the itch to start blogging again, I really surprised myself. Now, along with that desire? There is also a little bit of dread. I’m slowly easing back into cute clothing. Postpartum body is real, y’all. Very, very real. As soon as I got the green light, I was out the door to start exercising. Every day that goes by, I feel better than the previous. However, that roll that wasn’t there before or just the way things fit in general makes getting dressed a little trickier. For now, I am wearing things that I feel comfortable…

Birkelo Pruett

We welcomed our Birkelo “Birk” Pruett into our lives on July 22nd, 2015 at 8:05AM. He weighed in at 8 Ibs 9 oz., and was 21 1/4 inches long. It truly was love at first sight. The pregnancy was a long and hard one, to be honest. We found out early on that I had something called polyhydramnios. This basically meant that I had an increased amount of amniotic fluid. And if you are trying to stay svelte and beautiful whilst pregnant? Polyhydramnios is not really something you want to have.  Near the end, I was so swollen I hardly recognized myself! That being said, I made the mistake of going home and googling polyhydramnios and found out that sometimes it is caused by a congenital birth defect. We did not do genetic testing, because we knew we would love our baby either way.  So at that point, we were left to wait until…
