12 weeks

Today was our 12 week ultrasound. Its the scan they do to check the baby and measure everything to make sure the babe is growing on schedule and to make sure that nothing looks "off". My hubby is so swamped at work so I brought the grandmas along with me today. We had a blast. I got the same ultrasound tech that I had for our first ultrasound in the same sweet room. The grandmas had to share a chair which was funny and they even got their own private screen to watch the baby. It was quite a funny sight. We saw baby Andrews the minute she turned the ultrasound on and "he" was moving all around. I can't even believe the difference from 9 weeks to 12! We could see the profile of the face so well, the brain, all the fingers and toes...just amazing! There was one moment where it looked like the babe got scared and threw its hands up in the "air". It was the cutest thing I've ever seen! Baby Andrews was quite active this afternoon!! We're going to have our hands full! :) I am going absolutely nuts wondering if this is a "he" or a "she" kicking around in there. I tried my best to peak today but it's too early. The tech did however give me a pretty sweet picture and you can see the "parts". Its just too early to tell what it is...looking at it you would say that 100% it's a boy but from doing a ton of research online Chris and I are now thinking it's a girl. Chris has thought its a girl the whole time. Time will tell...19 more days! We are just SO thankful that everything looks great!! We are so thrilled about this baby...boy or girl!! Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us!! It means so much.


Check out the latest picture of baby Andrews.... you can see why it looks like a boy....The feet are kind of curled up..
Look at that sweet face! The left hand is up by the face....

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!

10 years..

Friends. 
It's been 10 years since I created southernatheart. 
10 whole years. 
I remember sitting in our little cottage in Southern California logging in and creating this blog like it was yesterday. 
I've always had a passion to write.  I have piles of journals from my teen years and early 20s.  Writing has been and still is therapeutic for my soul.  Whether it's pen to paper in a journal, a blog post or like the most recent years a post on Instagram.  It's how I express myself and my thoughts best.  Documenting life through the good times and hard. 

These past three years I've simply ignored my blog because I lost the desire and all the extra time to sit and write. 
Something stirred inside me recently and that was to log back in and get this thing going again. 
I don't know what it's going to look like, nor can I tell you what to expect here but we'll figure that out as we go. 
Exciting things are happening I expect this blog along with Instagram to be part of t…
