Unique Vintage {Jonathan Adler}

This past week my husband and I got away and celebrated our 10 year anniversary in Chicago.

unique vintage

It was a wonderful week of sightseeing, enjoying yummy food, having adult conversation free of children, and getting to window shop.  I love going to a big city where you see shops that you don’t get to see everyday, especially here in Oklahoma.  I spotted many great design shops and tried to hit up all that I could.  This one was a definite must!

Many of you are probably familiar with Jonathan Adler.  You most likely have heard his name, and many of you may have even seen his designs online or in Target.  He creates mod design furnishings and accessories based on unique vintage pieces.  I love his use of colors and patterns in his furnishings, pillows, and accessories.

Pregnancy Q&A Plus Bump Shot Outtakes

Just in case you missed my big news on Friday – we are excited to welcome another addition to our family!  I had planned on having some awesome and profesh pics taken by a legit photographer for you guys to announce my growing bump but our photography session was canceled twice due to bad weather.  I just took matters into my own hands, busted out my tripod, and took some photos myself.  The results were comical and I  couldn’t resist sharing some of the outtakes with you guys and answer some of your questions about the state of my uterus while we are at it.

When did you find out?  Were you guys trying?

I found out on January 25th.  It took us 2 years to get pregnant with Axton after several different  investigations into infertility.  This time we just decided to not “try” but not prevent either.  Probably TMI for you guys!  I didn’t track any dates, download any calendars, or even really think about it.  I told my hubs that if we didn’t have another baby I was going to open a studio when Axton goes to Pre-K (he is 3.5 now) so I wouldn’t be devastated if we didn’t have another baby and I would have something to look forward to.  Is that weird?  Either way it made me feel better.  60 days later we had a positive pregnancy test.  God is GOOD!

When are you due?  How far along are you?

I am 15 weeks pregnant and due October 7th.  I am pretty sure I was 2 weeks pregnant when I found out.  I feel like I look huge compared to my last pregnancy since I haven’t been able to button my pants since about 8 weeks.  Maternity clothes came a lot sooner this time.  But I’ve been told your body whips right back into pregnancy mode the second time around.  And I love stretchy pants, so I was secretly not looking forward to wearing skinny jeans.

How did you tell your hubby?

This time I didn’t buy the fancy and expensive pregnancy tests, I just got the ones from the Dollar Store.  After trying to have a baby for 2 years I wasted a lot of money on those pee sticks and I realized the Dollar Store ones were just as effective.  I placed the pregnancy test on the kitchen counter by where I put my outgoing paint shipments for the next day so he would see it when he got home.  As he walked in the door he picked up the test and then slapped it down on the counter and didn’t say a word.  Jaw dropped I said “Do you know what that is?”  Confused he said “Ugh, it looks like some weird thing going out with the paint shipments?” 

I guess since he had never seen what a cheapo pregnancy test looked like he had no idea what he was looking at.  After further explanation I got a big hug and kiss.  And a good laugh thankful some lucky online customer didn’t get a pregnancy test in their paint shipment.

How have you been feeling?

I feel like I’ve been on the verge of throwing up and crying for months.  This pregnancy has been very different from my last one.  I have felt a lot more tired and emotional.  All bets are on a girl because I can pretty much guarantee tears are shed on a daily basis.  And I am normally not into crying so this is a new thing for me!

Will you find out the sex?

YES.  I am a planner and I have to know!  We will find out the sex on my next doctor’s appointment on May 7th.  Only 3 weeks away!

{Hi awkward Senior Class Picture.  And after doing the math this baby will graduate in 2032.  And I will be 50 years old by then.  I think I just had a panic attack.}

Have you had any cravings?

More like aversions.  I have been almost vegetarian this pregnancy.  I can barely eat or smell any meat.  Prior to pregnancy I could throw down a steak with no problem, now the thought just turns my stomach.  I have been eating lots of beans, nuts, eggs, and cheese to make up for lack of meat eating.  My iron levels have remained normal so my doc isn’t concerned.  And I have lost 2lbs. since getting pregnant!  I wish I ate this much fruit and veggies and ate this healthy when I wasn’t pregnant!  PS:  I can still eat bacon.

How did you tell your family?

We took Axton to my parent’s and Scott’s Mom’s house wearing this T-Shirt.  Everyone was shocked because they had no idea we were even thinking or trying to have another baby! 

On April Fools I decided to share the news on my personal Facebook wall.

Everyone kept asking me when I was going to make it FB official.  And you could tell the awkward glances were coming from friends and people at church – because no one wants to ask a woman if she’s pregnant! 

Is Axton excited to be a big brother?

YES!  We just told him last week because that is what the books recommend – waiting until the first trimester is over and until your bump is getting more obvious. 

He insists that the portal of communication is via my belly button so he talks directly into it telling the baby he loves it and wants it to come out to play.

He has made it clear he wants a baby brother because he doesn’t like girls or girl toys.  And he insists on naming it Ryder – after his favorite guy on Paw Patrol.  Pretty sure we are going to pass on that name but it’s been fun seeing him be excited about brotherhood!

Any name contenders?

Yes.  But I’m keeping them a secret for now because I have plenty of time to change my mind between now and then.  Scott named Axton so we really want an original name again.  We can’t name this baby Joe after having an Axton, after all.

 

Any nursery ideas?

This has been the most commented and asked subject. 

“Can’t wait to see the nursery!”

“I bet the nursery will be amazing!”

No pressure, right!  I haven’t thought too much about the nursery because that bedroom looks like a homeless shelter right now and I can’t plan too much until we know the gender.  So I’m trying not to fall in love with any ideas right now. 

I do have a preliminary Pinterest Board where I am currently brainstorming – which you can follow here.

We are excited for Baby #2 and to share this journey with you all!  Thank you for all of your well wishes and words of encouragement!  From the bottom of my baby bump – you guys are the best (sniffle – sniffle)!
