This is, without a doubt, my favorite post I’ve written to date. I am so excited to share with you all that I and DJ have a baby due in May, and Moose is going to be a big brother.
I’m pregnant! God is so good, and His hand is really evident in the gift of our baby.
I also want to take a minute to say, if seeing pregnancy announcements causes a mix of emotions/is at all painful for you- my heart goes out to you. Gosh, I empathize, and I am praying you will be blessed with your little one in God’s perfect timing. I hope this announcement encourages you from someone who’s been there, even though I know all journeys and struggles look different ❤️.
So, what’s next? Soon, I plan on posting a first trimester recap and just reflecting on everything to this point so far. Also, I’ll be sharing the gender in the next couple posts- if you want, feel free to post your guess below 😊
We have never been more excited, and we love this baby so much already.

How exciting and still another big life event for you since I started following your blog Mackenzie. Congratulations to you and DJ! I know someone who will be happy to be a big brother, but better break it to Moose gently that he is not the baby anymore or his nose will be out of joint. 🙂
Thank you, Linda!! <3 Lol you are so right- We have yet to tell him. We will definitely have to break it to him gently! It's adorable because he'll his head gently on my stomach sometimes- I think he knows his little sibling is in there!
Ah, that is so sweet Mackenzie … I’m sure he does know something’s up and just wait until Moose feels kicks and he’ll really have a reaction then. ❤
Aww I bet he will! 🥰
A big congratulations to you and your family. This is such good news!
