Big Announcement: BABY # 3 on the way!!

(Tabitha: Dress: Ted Baker ( Past season) / Headband: Children Place // Joshua: Ralph Lauren shirt (Past season) / H&M pants)

I would like to say thank you to Dillard’s for my beautiful maternity dress. This is a very flattering dress. It’s beautiful and flowy. The fit is incredible and the designer nicely lined the dress which gives you a nice feminine look. I would definitely recommend it. 

 Designer Chelsea & Violet available at Dillard’s.


Spilling the beans: Pregnant with baby # 3. I’m just freaking out a teeny bit! We were not going to start “trying” until the end of this year, but oops! I also feel so nervous because we have a big trip coming in May. We didn’t know we were expecting when hubby purchased the airline tickets. Plus, I feel like I am barely keeping my head above the water right now. I can barely keep plants alive and feeding my family actual meals proves to be tricky most nights. But the LORD says, I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.(Philippians 4:13)

Tabitha and Joshua are both incredibly excited to have a new sibling on the way. I honestly started getting so nervous last night knowing that today is my schedule to share the news. Now, it feels surreal to let everyone know, since this has been our little secret since January. I can’t believe I made it this far. I don’t know if any of you noticed my baby bump in all my latest outfit photos. Now that the news is out, I can finally breathe a little. So, expect lots of baby things happening here on LENPARENT.

 I wanted to let you know I feel GREAT, and so far, this pregnancy has felt very similar to my first and second one. I don’t even FEEL pregnant?? Is that normal? I keep looking down there and saying “hello little peanut, are you still in there??”. 

Lastly, we want to say that we are SO thankful that we have been blessed with three miracles. It’s not always easy to conceive, and what a gift this is. I still plan on blogging three times a week through my pregnancy. I felt so incredibly blessed to have a career that I am deeply passionate about, at the end of the day, it’s my family that is at the center of my life– and to be adding another baby to our family is a tremendous blessing. We can’t WAIT to meet our little babe and keep you posted along the way! 

Anyone else pregnant? Due at the end of August? Pregnant tips? I’d love to hear!

    Len, I am so incredibly excited for you! Although we ‘just’ know each other through the blogging world, I honestly feel like I know you a lot better than I in fact do! So, when I saw your post on instagram announcing baby #3 I literally jumped out of my chair (no, I am not joking!) You do such an incredible job with your content/photos I would have NEVER guesses from your previous posts as you appear not to be showing at all! Then this photo with your bump (showcasing you beautiful bump) is so beautiful!
