There's been a ton of exciting stuff going on lately from concerts coming back to places opening up and more! I have some exciting news of my own to share.

Back in June of 2020, my husband and I welcomed our son Weston to the world. I can't even believe it, but we just celebrated his first birthday. Where does time go? Things certainly aren't slowing down in our household either. In fact, I've been keeping a little secret for a while. Finally, this morning with Brain and Courtlin I got to share my secret--Baby #2 is on the way!

I'm so excited to finally be able to share the happy news with our audience. And another surprise is that (drumroll).....I'm expecting a little girl! So now I'll have one of each. We had to even things out apparently. I can't be outnumbered by the boys. It's crazy to think about having two little ones, but we're so excited. I can't wait to see the difference in their personalities and if she will be more like me (since my son is just like my husband).

I do have a name picked out, but my husband is still warming up to it. Also, I want to make sure it fits her, so I won't be completely certain that's what we'll go with until she has made her arrival. I explained this to Brain and Courtlin this morning when I shared the big news. You can hear that full discussion here (start at the 26:23 mark).

I'm so happy that the secret is out and I can't wait to share more of my experience with you all. Speaking of experience, if any of you have experience with two under times two send it my way. I could use all of the advice I can get. Feel free to shoot me a message in the KHAK app!
