hello, lovelies! i can’t believe i’m finally writing this post, but i wanted to let you all know that it’s baby time! we’re on our way to the hospital this morning to welcome our sweet baby boy into the world.
for those of you who might not know, baby roost is hanging out breech. despite doing everything we could for months to get him to flip, he said ‘no thanks, mom! i’m comfy and cozy just like this.’ so, even though my due date isn’t until next week, we had to schedule a ceserean delivery for today.
though it’s not exactly what i was hoping for, we’ve known for several weeks now and i’ve definitely come to peace with it. i just want him to be healthy and happy and he will be perfect no matter how he enters the world! we’re also having a ‘family centered cesarean’ which i feel really good about (i’m sure i’ll share all the details with you on that a little later).
so, wish us luck! and we will gladly accept any prayers you’d like to say for us today. i’m feeling a little nervous but mostly just excited and anxious to meet him.
regarding going home to roost, i’ve worked hard to schedule several posts for you guys over the next few weeks so you shouldn’t notice much difference around here. i’ll be popping in and out, but mostly just resting and taking care of our newbie.
and i know that some of you are super excited about all this baby talk (like all you mommas and newlyweds) and others are probably less so (like all you design students and single ladies). i just want to let you know that though i do have several nursery diy’s and baby talks planned, i’m also going to be very mindful of not changing going home to roost’s vibe here. i promise it won’t be all baby all the time, and that even if i’m sharing some crazy onesie painting project, you’ll be able to take the same technique and use it on something totally non-baby related. sound good? ghtr has always been a direct reflection of my life and passions, and it just so happens to be all about baby right now. i hope you’ll stick with us though, as life is ever changing!
i’m sure i’ll be posting as much as possible over on instagram, if you’d like to follow along i’ll meet you there!
