Well, we've officially survived our first week at home as a family of four, thanks to a LOT of help from my mom, dad, sister, and brother-in-law, and a TON of generous friends and family who supplied us with home cooked meals and yummy takeout! I don't think we've had to fire up the stove, oven, or grill once since we've been home. Lucy is an angel and I am so so thankful for her sweet temperament and easy going personality. And thank you so much to all of you for your kind words and well wishes!

I wanted to also take a minute to thank the lovely people at for being super thoughtful and sending a gift for Violet. It made her feel so special to receive something just for her amid all of this chaos of settling into our new normal. She is completely in love with the gorgeous personalized wooden name puzzle that sent for her. She's crazy into puzzles and spelling her name at the moment, so this was a definite hit. And the really funny thing is that my mom randomly bought her the same gift in a different color palette without knowing that Violet had already received one - what are the odds!? Great minds I suppose? She loves and plays with both of them, so it ended up being a happy accident :)

And one more big thank you to our guest posters this week - Reichel Broussard of Copy Cat Chic, Kristen Krason of 6th Street Design School, and Bridget Hunt of Tales of Me and the Husband! So sweet of these ladies to help me hold down the fort during this big adjustment in our life. You can stay tuned to more guest posts next week from a new group of lovely ladies - namely Shari Lott of Spearmint Baby, Bron Bates of Baby Space, Jess Craig of IROCKSOWHAT, Esther Garfield of Buy Modern Baby, and Katie Stratton of Katie's Pencil Box. Hope you all have a happy weekend!

xo, Lauren
