Happy belated Mother's Day to all the moms out there! And grandmas, and aunties, and sisters, and friends, and foster moms, and volunteers... if you mother in any way, I celebrate you!
I had planned an epic Mother's Day post, but instead I slept. And ate quiche with friends. And played with my daughter. It was a lovely day. Besides that, finally completing and publishing the post about Hannah's hip treatment was unexpectedly emotionally exhausting. Reading all of the responses and comments and notes of support were so wonderful. Our hearts are very full with the response to our story, and I'm so happy the post has been shared widely to help provide some context and support to parents just starting their DDH journey!
So instead of waxing poetic about motherhood... I'll make a fun announcement on the subject. We are expecting Baby Low #2 in early September! We feel so blessed. I'm 23 weeks along now, and this little one is healthy and lively!
As we did with Hannah, we wanted to do a photo shoot to reveal the gender of our new baby. Because it was almost spring when we were ready to share our news, we thought we would incorporate sparkly eggs and Hannah's favorite bunny. I'm going to share the photos below as "Part 1" of this gender reveal. In Part 2, coming later this week, we'll show you the fun, simple DIY project we did with the photos to share the news with our families. Enjoy!
(and don't miss the last picture!!! Best one of the whole series...)
IT'S A GIRL!!!
Hannah is going to have a little sister! And Curtis is in so, SO much trouble!
Now one look at the photo below - my very favorite photoshoot outtake EVER - and you'd think Hannah was hoping for a baby brother. Not so. The glitter eggs were, well, glittery. And she wanted to eat them. This was her reaction when we removed the glitter egg (missing quite a bit of glitter) from her mouth. Message to all you mamas - glitter eggs and 1-year olds don't mix!
