Welcome to the world, Max!

After 9 months of anxiously awaiting our 2nd baby to arrive, I'm happy to report, he's finally here! Ten toes, ten fingers, healthy with a head full of hair, I'm thrilled to introduce Max Stephen Prose! :)

We are totally in love especially big brother, Jack. He loves kissing his little "peanut" Max! 

Meeting Max for the first time! 
"I'll always protect you baby Max," says Jack. My heart melted. 
Our first family photo!
We had so many wonderful visitors to the hospital and it has continued through out our first week home! Thank you to all our fantastic friends and family that made it to visit and/or sent flowers, cards and food!

Heading home from the hospital! We can't wait to see big brother Jack! 

As soon as we get settled, I will share more pictures, very soon, I promise! Again, so much love to our friends and family for your continued support and love as we bring home our little peanut! Until then, here's one last photo of our newest angel... He is a smiley one! Always smiling in his sleep!

Final weeks of Baby Bump!

Ok, ok, so I've missed a few weeks, but we've been busy and I've been feeling VERY pregnant and huge! My final weeks with this giant baby bump have arrived!

On the bright side, I'm sharing some adorable photos of Jack's Big Brother class he attended a couple weeks ago! It was so sweet to watch and he's very excited to be our big helper when baby arrives!

The older siblings-in-training were given dolls to hold, burp and even change diapers! It was super cute!

Our big boy received his diploma and proved ready to be a BIG Brother!! We treated him to ice cream after class! ;) 

Now for the final weeks of my baby bump! We'll be going in for delivery at 39 weeks, so here are the last 2 week's photos! 

Check out that big-cheesy smile!! 

We are anxious and excited to meet our little baby MAX! Yes, baby Prose finally has a name!! It's been a roller coaster pregnancy with all that we've had going on, but we are truly blessed and grateful to be adding to our family!

Quick 4th of July project!!

I had an itch to do some festive decorating in my house (two weeks from having a baby, crazy; I know!) but I just wanted to make the house feel festive for Independence Day! I hang decorations for most holidays, so I really had to make this one easy and quick to do!

Thanks to Target, I found some patriotic foam stars in the Dollar Spot & my go-to project is always a simple garland! So, that's what I made! :) 

This simple garland took me about 5 minutes!

I used a simple zig zag stitch. 

After sewing, just hang and enjoy! :)

Just when you start having the holiday blues from all the fun and excitement we had in December, it goes away fast when we start to see sign...
