Hello, Cakelets! We’re so excited to announce Jillian (aka co-founder + real weddings editor of 100 Layer Cake) and her husband Scott are expecting their 2nd child this Summer. She thought she’d pop over and share a bit of her experience thus far.
Scott and I are thrilled to share a bit of our baby journey with you. Our son Liam is 5yrs old. I always knew I wanted 2 kids but as Liam got older, and we struggled with having a second, I started to become satisfied that we’d be this perfect lil trio. Late last year, I found out the reason we weren’t conceiving was because I had polyps on my uterus. Once I had them removed, 3 months later, to our utter amazement we became pregnant. Our baby boy is due August 1st. He’s our little miracle baby.
I’m currently 17 weeks, but I feel like I’m at 20 weeks. They say everything happens sooner the second time around, and they weren’t kidding. Before I knew it I couldn’t fit into any of my jeans or shirts. Below are a few things I’ve purchased to help be through the “growing” pains.
1. Ingrid and Isabel Belly Band
2. Free People dress
3. Modular triangle pullover bra
4. Pregnancy pillow
5. Maternity dark vintage rip jeans
6. bareMinerals Skinlongevity skincare line
7. GapFit maternity capris
8. Herbivore body polish
9. White Birkenstock
Since Liam is so much older I only kept a few of his baby clothes, and let’s face it, he’s a boy and most things were not worth keeping. Below are a few of my favorite things for our summer baby!
1. Wiggle set in Organic Cotton
2. Ultra Violet Kids Tidal Wav bloomer
3. Outer Space baby gown
4. Lola & Stella romper
5. Striped Happy Overalls
6. Tea Collection bodysuits
7. Rylee and Cru romper
8. Lola & Stella cactus baby shorts
9. Wild Boy sweatshirt
Please let me know if you have any must-haves for mom & baby. Even though this is my second go at it, things have changed in 6 years, so I can use all the advice and tips I can get. As a designer, you can imagine I’m most excited about updating Liam’s bedroom for 2. More on that soon!
