We’re excited to announce that Kinley Rae is going to be a big sister!
Right now I’m about 15 weeks. We don’t know what we’re having yet, but we’re definitely going to find out. I’m too much of a planner! Even though there are plenty of gender-neutral concepts for nurseries, I really get into the design of the room and think it’ll be so much easier knowing if it’s a boy or a girl. It’s probably the designer in me… like, how can I create a design if I don’t know the client?! Plus, we get tired of always saying “he or she” or “it.”
We told Kinley Rae the big news a couple of weeks ago, and took an adorable video of her reaction. She was very excited, but more because she thought she was getting some sort of present out of the deal. She said “can I open it?!” and “is it behind your back?” after we told her. She’s starting to understand more and more, and telling us there’s a baby in Mommy’s belly, and how she’s so excited to be a big sister. It’s so freakin’ cute. We asked her if she thinks it’s going to be a boy or a girl and she says “No, Mommy, it’s a baby.”
My sweet and very talented friend, Jill, did a maternity/family photoshoot for us. I’m so happy with how the photos turned out! If you’re looking for a photographer for children, maternity, family, newborns, or engagements, you should contact her for your shoot. Not only is she very talented, but she has 2 of the sweetest, most well-behaved little children I’ve ever met so she’s WONDERFUL with kids. When we started the shoot, Kinley Rae had just woken up and was very grumpy and uncooperative. Jill was so sweet and patient with her, and after pulling out a princess crown and a lollipop she got Kinley Rae smiling and posing in no time!
