G and I had a big ‘family moment’ over the wekeend: We told our little Ella Joy that she’ll be a big sister. Her response: “Is it coming tomorrow?”

We are so excited about the growing family! Brace yourself for more baby related posts in the coming months.


Update: We just learned that that little bun in the oven is indeed a boy. Woohooo, a little swiss-mister!
