Ok, so I’ve planning this post for at least a solid month now, but I kept putting it off! Aaaand if you’ve been watching my insta stories, you might have caught me slip once or twice on baby’s gender! Ooops. It’s just so hard to keep a secret for so long, especially when my immediate family and closest friends already know. But I’m not keeping it a secret any longer! Bring on the baby gender reveal! Any last minute guesses?!
BOY OR GIRL?!!
Okay, enough anticipation!
It’s another baby girl for our family! And yes, Layla is PUMPED.
We are truly so blessed. Of course I would have been happy for either gender, but after the loss of Grace, it felt like my dream of having two little girls running around was completely crushed. I had envisioned them playing together and wearing matching little outfits for months. So, when I found out I was pregnant again, I was almost afraid to hope for another little girl. Aaron was convinced all along. After Layla, he says he’s destined for all the little girls! So far, he’s been right! 😉
With the timing of my due date (it’s only a week before Layla’s birthday!), it could not be more perfect. I’ve purchased a couple of onesies, but we are 100% set on clothes unless this little girl is drastically bigger or smaller than Layla! (And so far she seems to measuring right at average, similar to L!) We recently sorted all through Layla’s clothes newborn to 3T and organized them for our new little one. The newborn clothes are even already in the dresser. (Can you tell I’m excited?!)
And no, we’re not any closer on names. ? Like I mentioned in my 20 week pregnancy update, I feel like I’m getting less sure of names by the day. I went through something similar with Layla’s pregnancy though. I decided midway through I wasn’t loving our top contender name. But hey, it led us to the name Layla, and I can’t picture her named anything else! So, I’m just giving myself time to not think about it too much and hope it passes. We still have several months left, and honestly, I wasn’t 100% on L’s name until I saw her. Definitely don’t expect a name reveal until she’s here!
Any other questions about my pregnancy? Leave ’em in the comments and I’ll answer in an upcoming pregnancy update! ❤
When we found out we were pregnant with another girl (!) after secondary infertility and miscarriage I felt the same way! I was absolutely thrilled! I never had a sister and I am so excited my girls have each other. My oldest is so helpful and sweet to her baby sister, too. I am sure your girls will have that bond. We had a hard time choosing a name for our youngest, too. But I think God intervened and I saw the name Aveline which means ‘wished for child’ and I knew it had to be that! Good luck with your decision!
Ahhhhh!!! So exciting!!! My husband says he’s destined for girls too, especially since Baby #2 is also a girl.
Congratulations! Such a blessing to have two girls. Loving these photos too!
Congratulations! Very happy for your family! A little sister for Layla to play with sounds wonderful. Our granddaughter Kourtney (who turns 3 in June) loves her younger sister Kleah (almost 7 months) like crazy!
Yayyy!!! That’s so exciting! Congratulations! Now they can play dressup together, hehe!!
aw congrats!! You’re absolutely going to love having sisters! Its the best. Blaire is OBSESSED with Brooklyn, and I think Brooklyn might even love her more… its amazing. Congrats Lauren!! <3
Congratulations! I have two daughters and can not imagine my life without them. They are the best of friends.
I’m so over-the-top happy for you and your sweet family! This little one is incredibly blessed with the family she’s been gifted.
Congratulations! I have two boys and I was so happy to be able to go through all the old clothes and see them re-worn again on the new baby, it’s fun having two of the same. Like you said, you imagine it will make them even closer too, I had a sister I am incredibly close to and it’s fun seeing my two boys being so close.
How exciting for you! 🙂
Hope you are having a great week so far! I’m feeling a bit under the weather unfortunately, trying to rest up (as much as you can with two kids, ha!).

Congratulations! Layla looks like she is going to be a great big sister! I just had my second, and life with 2 is definitely an adventure! : )
Congratulations!!! I am so happy for all of you! Nothing like sisters, what a blessing!
Awww, How exciting!!! Congratulations???
Another girl is so exciting! While all siblings are close, I think sisters are always closer. So excited for you and your family!
