oh boy....oh's a GIRL!

Yes, you're just as surprised as we are!! We the Andrews are expecting a sweet little baby GIRL and could not be more thrilled!! Katelyn Marie Andrews is a modest little one (her dad is happy about that) So here is how we found out...I had to go to the radiology department this afternoon to have my cervix checked to make sure that all is well. While I was sitting the waiting room I was praying that I would get the same tech I had at my 8 week ultrasound. She was so sweet and so knowledgeable. I didn't even know if she was working today but I was praying! (sometimes some of the techs can be a bit harsh so you want to get a good one.) They called every body's name and I was the last one in the room and the girl I had been praying for came out and called my name!!! I did my yippee/ Praise you Jesus dance all the way to the ultrasound suite and told her how happy I was to have her, she even remembered me! She checked my cervix (all looked great to me) and she asked if I knew what I was having so I went into my story of what we've been through but didn't tell her what the others places said that we're having. I told her that we didn't know but we're dying to find out. She said she would definitely check once the scan was done...I layed and watched the babe move all around while the tech was taking measurements of everything and pointing out all the body parts to me including the kidneys, stomach, cerebellum, etc...amazing!!! Then she does down and the legs are spread eagle and bam! 3 little lines! It's a girl!!! It was such a sweet moment. Only thing that was missing was my hubby but it didn't take long until he got the news. He is so excited about his baby girl! I am just amazed at how the Lord works. Here we had been working so hard to find out the sex of our baby, I was doing crazy things to make sure the legs wouldn't be crossed and the day I least expected it and didn't have to do anything or pay a penny is when we found out! It was the best surprise we've ever gotten! We are all thrilled to pieces!! 5 more months and we will be holding our baby girl!!! It's time to shop and start her room!!! Life could not get any better! Thank you Lord for this little angel! As my dear friend Ruth said to me today, I have a precious baby girl in Heaven and now have one here with us on Earth! So sweet. We can't wait to meet you and kiss your little cheeks baby Kate!!!

Ok onto some pictures...

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..

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…
