.happy.

Things are going well and moving along at the Andrews household. We had a blessed Easter. Spent it with our family and close friends at my parents house for brunch. Chris and I spent all weekend at my parents house which was fun. We had our first doctors appointment today with my doctor. It was so great to meet him, a blessing really. He is the neatest guy. The thing I love most about him is his love for the Lord and his passion for life. It was a very positive appointment, I have lost 1.5 pounds since our last visit to the office. I was stoked. I had literally just come from eating my bbq wrap from red robin with my endless basket of fries and ranch.. More good news is I passed my glucose test with flying colors. I am so happy. Doc said that everything looks great! Heartbeat was strong again today beating at 167bpm. As we were listening there was a funky sound and he said that was the baby kicking and moving around! Baby Andrews is now the size of a lemon, about 3.5 inches! It is so nice to be in the 2nd trimester! I am feeling SO much better!!! Can't wait to see what the next couple of weeks hold! We're finding out the sex of the baby this Friday!! Woohoo! Pray that Baby A cooperates and isn't too modest!! Here are a couple of pictures from Easter...baby bump is making an appearance. I hardly fit into my jeans anymore!

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…
