Monday, December 1

We have a little something to share...

Yes, we are expecting again! 
Some of you have probably guessed as much already due to my long absences from the blog and social media world, but Meyers baby #5 is expected to arrive sometime around early June 2015, and we couldn't be more excited!
I'm in my fourth month now but not showing quite yet, so instead of glamorous bump shots like so many of beautiful expecting friends, I decided to have the kiddos help me share the news in mostly our pajamas.haha 
The morning/all-day sickness has been pretty epic with this one(to put it mildly), which is hard when Martin's in a busier season of work and there's been so many cold and flu bugs going around, but hopefully I'll be out of the woods soon-ish and can get into a regular rhythm of life again. Thank you all so much for your patience this past month and for not giving up on me while you've stared at the growing cobwebs on my blog.haha
To answer a couple frequently asked questions, yes I'm still planning on starting a maternity series for this little one, but I'm gonna wait to take progress shots when I start showing. I should also mention that we're planning on another home-birth! I've been to see my midwife and everything is absolutely perfect with our little peach. Also we'll probably find out the sex sometime this month:) 
I can't believe we're going to be a family of 7!! 5 kids in five years seems way too nuts to be my life.haha But this was definitely on purpose which makes me certifiably insane I guess.hahaha 

If you have any other questions feel free to ask, but I'm so excited for life and my blog moving forward, and all the exciting things I have lined up for this month and the new year! So stoked!

Take care my lovely people,

  6. Oh that is absolutely wonderful news! Congratulations Emily!! You have such beautiful little ones and I cannot wait to hear more about your pregnancy. Five kids in five years, wowza! ;D

  7. Hooray! That is so exciting! I don't think you're crazy (my husband probably would because he thinks I'm crazy for wanting 7 before I'm 30...which at this point is pretty much impossible unless they were all 9-12 months apart) and am hoping to follow pretty much the same pattern! I want to get all those pregnancies out of the way so I can have all my babies here and then work on working out haha. I'm so happy for you! You rock, Emily! :)

  13. Congrats! I'm wondering how you keep it all together with so many little ones! I'm at the end of my pregnancy with my second and being pregnant while taking care of an active toddler has been a trip and totally exhausting! I think it'd be awesome if you did a blog post of tips for taking care of little kids while pregnant. I've always wanted a big family, but the thought of being pregnant again and taking care of 2, 3, or 4 little kids is totally overwhelming!!!

    1. ^ This!
      I've just had my first baby, and it seems like I'll never want another one.. (The "baby blues" is over but it takes me a while to adjust, I guess). You really inspire me and give me hope the it is possible to have a big family and keep it all together, and I would LOVE any post about your life as a mom to a bunch of kiddos :)
      Anything you write will be amazing, nothing is obvious for us new moms ;)

  23. Congratulations! I had a feeling something was in planning when you skipped over the plans for more kids question in your Q&A! I cannot wait to follow along with another one of your pregnancies! We are due with #2 in early May and planning an out-of-hospital birth as well! Hope you feel better soon!

  24. Wow congrats! If I bounced back as fast and well as you do I would have more too. I always wanted 4 and after 2 my husband freaks when I mention it lol. How do you guys make it financially? My blog isn't as big as yours so that's my only concern. Well space too, there's enough room for everyone?

  62. Congratulations! How in the world do you handle all those kids!? haha!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Awww congratulations! Ykno recently I was wondering if you planned to have more kids, but I always feel questions like that can be "none of my business" or "too nosy" etc. Maybe because I've never had kids, I never know how to approach baby questions - but then, since I haven't, I'm always curious. It's probably a much more vicious cycle in my brain than it needs to be. haha But this answers my question! Also have wondered if you plan it, and this answers that as well. lol You have the most adorable family, I can't wait to follow along with this one as well. :) And I hope it starts to ease up for you so you have as easy of a pregnancy as possible. <3

  64. AWESOME!! Don't you guys stop at a dozen now. ;) God has blessed you tremendously.

    Everyone is always asking you how you do all you do. Doesn't that encourage you!? It's nice to look at those times when you are superwoman, especially when things aren't where you thought they'd be. I like to tell people that it's much easier than I expected. I get lots of warnings of how hard motherhood is - and sometimes it is! but this is what I think:

    There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
    There are thousands to prophesy failure,
    There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
    The dangers that wait to assail you.
    But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
    Just take off your coat and go to it;
    Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing
    That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.

    You and yours are beautiful! Looking forward to seeing the next cute redhead. ;) It would be fun if he/she was brunette, just to be different. haha
