Hi everyone! Ashley here (Emily is still in the hospital, but she wanted me to share); so excited to announce the birth of baby Caroline Collins Wieczorek. She was born June 9th at 10:45 PM and weighed 7 pounds 9 ounces. Both mom and baby are doing very well — happy and healthy! Emily and Joe are overwhelmed at all of the love and support you all have shown them over the course of this pregnancy and she can’t wait to share more with you next week!

This weekend it really dawned on me how little time we have left as a family of 4 – or 5 – if you include our dog, Henry. 🙂
We spent the majority of our time this past weekend readying the house for our newest addition, snuggling all together in our bed, and celebrating birthdays with some of our favorite people. However – everything right now is difficult. Sleeping, breathing, carrying my kids, bending over to put on my shoes – all of these things are getting increasingly difficult. Some are next to impossible. And all of these things are constant reminders that our little girl could join us at any moment now.
That being said, it’s time to get back to business and to talk about something that has been much requested around here lately.
Our birth plan.

As you all know – I am dress obsessed. The problem with being dress obsessed and pregnant, is that NOTHING I had in my closet before I got pregnant fits anymore. I tried on some of my old dresses the other day – you know – just for a good laugh. And what started out as a joke, almost ended in tears. I should have known better. Even some of my largest and stretchiest dresses were WAYYY too small. My old mini dresses look like midriff shirts, I could barely get anything over my hips, and literally nothing zips.
Mother’s Day is a little over a week away, and I wanted to share some of my Mother’s Day must haves for all the special mothers in your lives.
In just two short months – I cannot believe I am about to say this – our baby girl should be here. I can vaguely remember this happening with the boys once I hit 31 weeks, but it’s like all of a sudden, your pregnancy that feels like it’s taking forever — feels like it’s all coming to an end very quickly.
