CHRISTMAS PHOTOS 2018 + SURPRISE!

Well we have some REALLY exciting news to share.. and you can probably guess based on the photos but Baby Gemma #2 is coming this spring! !! 😁 EEEK!! We are OVER the top so so SO excited! Want to know what is so crazy, remember THIS POST from our Paris trip in 2016?! We announced Baby Gemma #1 [Luke Bear] just 2 years ago tomorrow! This time we shot them at home so we could have Fitzy-boy in them AND we woke up to an exciting snowfall which made it that much better.

John was teasing me because I was trying to form a ‘bump’ for these photos and he’s like “you are so trying to look pregnant!”🙈 I actually did the same thing for our first announcement(☺️) – both were shot in the early morning which is part of that! I am totally showing sooner than I did with Luke though – it is so true that the second time you show more quickly. I am still wearing my regular clothes but they are a little snug so I am sure I will using a hair tie around my jeans by Christmas time.

I think Luke is going to like having a sibling a lot! One of my girlfriends has a 5 month old and she brings her over to the house and Luke will give her a paci if she cries and will give her his toys if she gets upset. It is really sweet and it makes me think he will be a really sweet older brother!!

I’m sure you all will have a lot of questions so you can leave them in the comments below and I can do a blog post or an IG story answering a few! ☺️ John and I are so excited to finally share the news! I had a really tough first trimester and have remained a sick into the second trimester but I am hoping it slows down a bit soon so I will have more energy. ❤️❤️


OUTFIT DETAILS

EMILY: DRESS [runs TTS] | HEELS | EARRINGS | LIPSTICK

JOHN: SUIT | WHITE BUTTON DOWN | SHOES [his favorite dress shoes!]

LUKE: VELVET BLAZER via ZARA | WHITE BUTTON DOWN | PLAID BOW TIE | RED PANTS | BEANIE | MITTENS | LOAFERS WERE GIFTED

*This dress is AMAZING for any holiday event you have coming up – I am so obsessed! I got my regular size and it worked well because it has a little stretch in it! I’d say if anything it runs a little ‘big’ but only if you are between sizes. The sleeves are what really make it pop!*

Also, I get a lot of questions about family Christmas card ideas and coordinating outfit ideas for Christmas cards I thought I’d break down all of our outfits! I will also share links to our previous year cards as well. You can see our most popular Christmas card photo HERE, last years Christmas card photo HERE, or a casual Christmas PJ outfit HERE!


Huge shoutout to Amanda Lassiter for taking these photos! It was CRAZY cold and we are tough to shoot with Fitz & Luke and she was able to capture some really great memories – as she does every year! If you are in or around Tulsa, check her out!
