Happy Due Date, Sweet Baby Levi Rhett!



Happy happy “due date” and 40 whole weeks of carrying you in my belly, my Sweet Baby Levi Rhett!! I can’t believe I am officially #40weekspregnant today and that we are going to welcome you into our arms any day (or moment!) now!!



This has been the most beautiful, joy-filled pregnancy and I have truly loved every minute of feeling your little baby feet kicks and watching my belly grow right with you – what a gift from above it is to carry life in my womb! Thank you, Jesus!

 


I love being pregnant and the joyful wonder and expectancy of this sacred season of life… one that I will never take for granted!



I think this pregnancy has been even MORE special, because I know the absolute wonder and miracle that birth is… after already experiencing it once with my firstborn – sweet baby Judson!



I can’t think about sweet Levi Rhett’s upcoming birth without bringing tears to my eyes…



because I know that it is going to be, yet again, a moment where heaven meets earth as I get to hold my precious newborn on my chest and meet him for the very first time! Cue the waterworks!!

 


It has been so special to take weekly “bump pics” throughout this pregnancy (in the same exact dress every week… so as to see the difference best!), and I loved getting to compile them all together in this post and, quite literally, “watch my belly grow” these last 9 months!!










I’ll say it now and I’ll say it again… babies are nothing short of MIRACLES from the Lord, and there is nothing that has drawn me closer to the Lord than carrying HIS precious babies in my womb!! What an honor, treasure, and gift!

 


While today is technically your “due date,” my Sweet Baby Levi Rhett,



I know and believe that God’s timing will be perfect (as it always, always is!) and you will be here whenever HE decides “it’s time!”



So, whether that is today, this weekend, or sometime next week… we are giddy with excitement and so ready to meet you – whenever you are!! While we joyfully anticipate and await your arrival, we are truly soaking in these final days and memories as a little family of three and with Judson as our only baby!



I know my heart is only going to double in size when I have TWO babies in my arms to love… and I truly couldn’t be more grateful or excited!



God has been so abundantly good to our growing family in this season of life – with both the land and blessing us with you – and we know we are going to continue to see His glory and goodness in the days and weeks to come!! To HIM be all the praise, honor, and glory!


 

And now to recap the last week of sweet memories since my last blog post…

 


In total AWE of God’s Creation - stepped outside the other night to THIS - sooooo cool!!!!  The aurora borealis - aka the northern lights on top of our little white farmhouse!!! God is AMAZING!! He truly is the CREATOR of all - breathtaking skies like on this night and my precious baby boy growing in my belly - all glory to HIM!!


 

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” // Psalm 19:1

 


“You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created all things, and they exist because you created what you pleased.” // Revelation 4:11 

 

(which just so happened to be my “verse of the day” the very day I found out was pregnant with my sweet baby Levi Rhett)

 


“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights…” // James 1:17

 

(This verse I’ve always loved has never felt so timely and fitting than being 9 months pregnant and experiencing this that exact same day!!)


 

Feeling like the berry luckiest mama in the whole wide world



to be loved by all these sweet sweet country boys of mine!



And can’t think of a sweeter way to kick off Mother’s Day Weekend




than strawberry pickin’ with the very cutest ones in the patch -



right before we welcome sweet baby #2 any day now!!

 



PS. And yes, walking through a strawberry patch works as great “curb walking” when you are #9monthspregnant hehe -



we sure can’t wait to meet you, our “berry” sweet baby Levi Rhett!!

 



The berry sweetest way to kick off Mother’s Day Weekend

Happy Happy Mother’s Day!! Thank you for making me a mama first, my sweet firstborn baby boy!! And I can’t wait to see you be the BEST big brother to your sweet baby Levi Rhett - truly any moment or day now!!

 


Being “mama” to my babies is exactly who God has called and created me to be - and the most sacred and highest calling I will ever receive! I am living my dream come true and love being a stay-at-home mommy more than anything in the entire world!!



I will never forget the moment they first laid you on my chest, my angel, and knowing that you were mine to love! And I know my heart is about to be an absolute PUDDLE having TWO precious baby boys to love… as we are about to have ANOTHER newborn in our arms!!


 

I’m just so thankful that the Lord allowed me to nurse you your first 2+ years of life (such a gift!) and shortly after, blessed us with your baby brother on the way (& due in the coming days) just in time for THIS Mother’s Day!! I will never get over the immense GIFT that it is getting to be your mama, sweet baby J! You are my sun, my moon, and all of my stars - and I will never stop thanking Jesus for entrusting me with you - especially today on our third Mother’s Day with you here and as you are about to step into the new role of “big brother!”

 


“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.” // Psalm 127:3-5


 

And thank you, sweet Wes, for already making this such a special Mother’s Day morning - waking up to beautiful flowers, a heartfelt card (your sweet words brought this veryyy mama to tears), and the precious “L” charm (for sweet baby Levi Rhett) to add to my necklace I wear every day!!



You have always championed me and made me feel so seen and loved in motherhood, Wes, and I am forever grateful for the way you love and lead our family!!


 

This will most definitely go down as my very favorite Mother’s Day yet - with sweet little Judson at the most precious two-year-old age (just a tad longer!) and #9monthspregnant with our sweet baby #2!!


 

The boys sure did surprise and spoil this #9monthspregnant mama this beautiful Mother’s Day morning!  I loved getting to wear my beloved gold necklace with the new “L” charm (from Wes for my necklace in honor of baby Levi Rhett coming so soon!!)



and Judson painted me a sign (thanks to Wes)! So sweet to see on our way out the door to church first thing that morning!!

 


It was the most special Mother’s Day getting to worship and praise Jesus at church that morning with my big ol’ #9monthspregnant belly!!



Who knows - maybe this was our last Sunday with him in my belly!!



And Judson even made me some adorable Mother’s Day crafts this morning at church nursery, too!!



Be still my very pregnant heart!!!

 


Then we headed out to spend the afternoon at Wes’ sweet Nana’s house -



we loved getting to share special gifts with Nana & RaRa



and going out to feed the goats with Papa Jack!



I love spreading all the love to the special mamas in our lives…



who deserve to be celebrated every day for how they have sacrificed so much and shaped our lives beyond measure!!

 


And while rocking Judson down for his nap, sweet baby Levi Rhett was kicking in my belly RIGHT here where Judson’s little hand was laying - and I was a puddle!!



Thank you, Jesus, for these angel baby boys of mine!!! Being their mommy is the greatest gift of my life!



And walked out from rocking Judson down for his nap to this cutie putting together the baby’s bassinet - and lots of other baby equipment, too!! Can’t believe we are just days away from meeting our second child, Wes!! What a memorable and special Mother’s Day this was for our growing family - right before we enter newborn season round two!! We can’t wait for all those newborn snuggles this summer ahead!!

 


Click here to see a recap video of our sweetest Mother’s Day yet!! So many precious memories!!

 


Feeling so grateful for this berry sweet little life with my growing family after the most special Mother’s Day weekend yet - and truly soaking in allll the precious little moments (& snuggles) with my firstborn before baby brother gets here soon!!

 


Between a family trip to the strawberry farm,




a visit from my sweet mama



(and very best friend),



flowers from my boys,



waking up to the sweetest Mother’s Day gifts (& paintings) from Judson and Wes,



sweet little Mother’s Day mementos Judson made for me at church, a visit to Wes’ Nana’s house to be with family,



a gorgeous sunrise,



and final EMC trips



(& a Chickfila date)



to the post office -



my heart and cup is so full!!

 


And my 39.5 week appointment went great on Monday!! Baby’s heartbeat was 145 and he’s happy as can be in there - snug and cozy in mama’s belly!



We can’t wait to meet you soon little one!! Sweet Wes and I went out for a little “post-appointment date night” at Hickory Tavern afterwards (I got a spicy Buffalo chicken wrap hehe)!!



And meanwhile, Judson, was having the time of his life playing with “Nana” and riding his tractor all afternoon



before we ended the evening with a walk by the mountain view trails by our house!!

 


And yesterday was a happy “Due Date Eve,” sweet little one!! We sure can’t wait to meet you!!

 


Soaking in these very final days as a family of three (plus Red)



before baby brother gets here in God’s perfect timing!!



Filling this sweet time of joyful anticipation with so many little things that make me happy -



lotsss of walks



(& trips to the park)



with the boys,



the SWEETEST surprise flower delivery from my angel of a friend - Brianna (aka sunshine in human form!!),



watching our garden grow grow grow (just like my almost #40weekspregnant belly hehe),



cozy rainy days playing with all the playdough



and blocks,



fetching allllll the eggs



from our happy happy chickens,



basically living on my pregnancy ball haha,



and lots of sweet Judson and mommy dates



to the playground!!



Such a sweet final homestretch to baby



and we can’t wait for him be here in our arms soon!!

 


And onto a quick little EMC note…

 


We have been shipping out our very last orders this week before Judson’s baby brother - sweet baby Levi Rhett arrives… any day now!! We are sooo excited to meet our newest little “helper” over here at EMC!!

 


I will never stop thanking Jesus for the gift of this sweet small business (which, if you know the story… I truly never saw coming!!) that allows me to help provide for our growing family while also staying home and raising my babies!!! I LOVE getting to create and share happy, colorful, and encouraging art that helps others see the beauty and JOY in God’s beautiful Creation all around us!! Like I always say, I am simply a creative inspired by the true Creator, God!!

 


I hope everyone has a lovely rest of your week!! We are so excited to be entering the start to summer (our fam’s favorite season of all!!) just in time for our sweet baby #2 to arrive - and know these are going to be some special months ahead while I am on maternity leave!!
