little letters, waiting on spring edition.

dear glimmers of warm sunshine on windy city sidewalks,
i see you. i feel you. i’m so incredibly thankful for you.

dear baby bangs,
still debating if you were a terrible idea. but fortunately you’re just hair, and with that trusty prenatal vitamin that makes hair grow like a weed, i feel okay about you.

dear easter weekend coming up,
i can already smell the cinnamon rolls and to put it calmly,  I.CANNOT.WAIT.

dear sleeping at night sitting up,
tried you for the first time last night. i don’t really have any other options at this point so can we be nice to each other and make this work?

dear everything floral,
maybe my husband isn’t into you, but i am. and somehow you make spring feel like she’s really close by, which makes me love you extra.

dear easter candy i bought two weeks in advance,
a very big part of me knew this was a bad idea when i was in the midst of it, but i did it anyway. considering the majority of it is already missing, can i blame it on the whole eating for three argument?!

dear baby girl clothes in tiny sizes,
like seriously?! and what?! and this, even?! i can’t take it. why is everything extra cute! and finally, my favorite color is getting some attention.

dear baby girls,
i hope you like yellow.

dear all of you,
i can’t say thanks enough for your kind words on my last post. i feel like we’re all in this together! and you help me feel like i will survive, which means so much to me. thank you!

    I love these, they’re beautiful, funny and full of hope. I saw so many chutes popping, buds starting to break, and a robin! I think we’re on the other side of it all now!

    And totally understand getting the holiday candy early while you tell yourself in the moment it’s good to be ahead of the game, and have to go back again 10 days later haha. It’s so good though!

    Hi! Just finished a twin pregnancy and it was a kabillion times harder than my singleton ones and the horrible night rib pain was brutal. We bought lots of heating pads and I stuck them all over and propped them with pillows. That got a couple hours…

  9. Tessa

    I am so excited to see your girls! I honestly feel as though a friend is pregnant which is crazy as you have no clue who I am over in the uk but our family do love following along with yours. I would Love to gift your new arrivals with something beautiful and handmade and lemony yellow goodness. I’m sure you get a stupid amount of offers but should you read this and want some hand made lovely ness from England, I can email you 😘

  12. Rachael

    If you have to sleep upright try sleeping in/on a beanbag. Hard to get out of in the morning but comfy at night.

  13. Allison

    I get so lost looking at outfits for my baby girl-there are some cute stuff out there!


  14. Love your letters. They are so happy and cheerful!

  15. Melissa

    I love reading your posts! These little letter are my favorite! I was wondering what prenatal vitamin you use? Currently on some trying to recover from a bad haircut and they are not working very well. I loved your work and loved hearing you “good, better, best” thoughts on Instagram!
