Favorite Things: Blake Elizabeth

What a difference a week makes.

This time last week we were sitting at the hospital waiting for our turn (yes, when you have a scheduled delivery it’s like waiting for your turn to take-off at the airport) to deliver the new baby. We still didn’t know what we’d be naming her, had no way to travel to the same place in one car and definitely had no idea what to expect for becoming a family of five. A week later, we’ve got two out of three covered – clearly we still have no idea what to expect – but at this rate, that seems like a win.

So meet Blake Elizabeth, our newest little lady. She’s a tiny little peanut and is adjusting nicely to the nonstop chaos of our house which basically means she can sleep through just about anything.

Isn’t she sweet? We’re pretty obsessed. That includes both Drew and Reese who can’t get enough of holding her. Not going to lie, it’s been a little overwhelming trying to recover from a c-section with three kiddos and I feel like I’m moving a lot slower than I did after Reese but I keep trying to remind myself it’s only been a week.

Just like last time, here’s the promise that I won’t be veering into mommy blogging anytime soon  – case in point, gotta work on a quick The Bachelorette recap later – but since you stuck with me through the last few months, I figured an introduction was due.

If you’ve got any tips on life with three kiddos, feel free to send them my way. I’ll need all the help I can get!

 

Favorite Things: My Old Kentucky Home

Because it’s Kentucky Derby Week and this song, performed here by the Commonwealth’s own Ben Sollee for Woodford Reserve, just gives you all the Derby feels.

No but really, one of my very favorite parts of Derby Day is when the entire crowd joins in unison to sing My Old Kentucky Home. If it’s your first time heading to the races, get ready to be a little overwhelmed with Kentucky-pride when everyone drops the “Weep No More My Lady…” line.

Until then, put this on repeat and brush up on the lyrics.
