Baby is a... | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Baby is a...



^^^She said be funny and Jason nailed it but the best I could do was hold the G sideways. So funny... right guys???







^^^ps we know this is THE cheesiest/ most cliche pregnant picture ever and it was 100% a joke haha so stop laughing at us! ;) 






white v-neck: Victoria's secret kimono: Groopdealz leggings: Forever 21 (best leggings ever)  sandals: Steven Madden from Ross


Baby Shiflet is a GIRL you guys!! I KNEW IT haha So literally all of Jason's family (and Jason) all thought baby would be a boy. Also Jason is like ALWAYS right about everything (like seriously, I learned that early and I happily embrace it) so I secretly second guessed myself thinking baby would be a girl so this is big. Basically the first time I've been right about something really big. Had to document that ;)

We are soooo excited!!! I guess having a girl is extra special to me because I've always wanted to be/ have that mom where her daughter and her are best friends! I'm not close with my mom and we've never really had a perfect relationship so I've always been really jealous of those girls who go shopping with their moms and call their moms everyday just to talk and stuff and have that special love and bond that only a mom and daughter can share! When I found out baby was a girl, immediately I wanted to be THAT mom and make her feel super loved and be her best friend forever and ever :) That's a promise baby girl! So while I didn't cry when we found out, the more I think about being able to be the mom I've always wanted for myself to this sweet baby girl makes me really really happy and want to cry because I can't wait to meet her and start being best friends asap. 

So yes, I am very excited :) Jason is really excited to have a little girl and to make sure she loves soccer as much as he does haha I am totally cool with being a soccer mom! We haven't 100% agreed on a name yet so that might take some more convincing for me to do. I have a name that I LOVE  right now (like 85% set on this name) and Jason likes it, but isn't too sure about it for baby yet. Wish me luck, guys ;) 

Also just wanted to shout out the photographer who took these pictures!! My friend Alicia was soooo sweet and offered to take some pictures to share baby's gender and had the smoke bomb idea! It turned out soooo cool!! We looked for pink smoke bombs but literally no on here sells pink, only purple and red and like every other color in the world but the purple still turned out so cool! Basically if you're in AZ (or you want to be fancy and fly out a photographer) Alicia is your girl!! :)

  18. Um, you look absolutely beautiful in these photos!!!!! And that part about being best friends with your daughter just about killed me. YOU ARE GOING TO THE BEST MOM CANDACE!! Seriously, I can picture it. I was always really, really close with my Mom until I got older. She thinks I'm going through a rebellious phase right now lol. I like used to lean on her for everything (like any little problem, "oh mom will figure it out") and she really kind of babied me so I had to like break up with her and start figure out my own life. But always, point is, it was awesome. (The being close with her, not the me being mean now lol.) Having a sister is awesome too ;) just saying. I don't know what else to say, except you're the cutest. And I cannot wait to see this baby. If you decide on a name are you guys keeping it a secret???

  20. Aw this is so sweet! I didn't/don't have the kind of relationship with my mom either but thankfully after the birth of my son, we've started becoming closer and mending our strained relationship. Even though I don't have a daughter (yet! fingers crossed!) I want that same kind of relationship you described with my son Nathan. I'm sure you're going to be the best mommy to your little girl!! Congratulations to you both! Wonderful news and adorable pictures (even your joke one! lol)!!

    1. Thank you!! And even though it sucked not having a relationship with my mom, in a way it makes me feel better that you can relate to me :) Like, I'm not the only one out there who missed out on that haha but I love that we have the same attitude,too! Like, determined to be their everything and love them SO MUCH! I bet you're such a good mama to Nathan, too!! Thank you for sharing that :)

  22. A little girl!!!! I was so excited when I saw the big reveal on IG! <3 You both are precious! Girl, my maternity style was exactly the same. Tees, leggings, and oversized kimonos and cardis will be your life. (; Let the baby planning begin! I have that relationship with my mom. She is really my best friend. If I want to go shopping, I go with her. I've never been on a vacation without her, and I couldn't imagine a day without talking to her. I am so very sorry you were unable to experience that. But, having that bond with your daughter will no doubt be the best feeling. I know because she has told me that I am also her best friend and is so proud of the person I am. Haha totally getting choked up typing this. Oh, and by the way, we went through like a thousand names before we agreed. (; Good luck!

    1. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!! :) haha and yesss these are the only clothes that I feel are 1. comfy and 2. acceptable to wear in public haha when I'm home, I usually snag Jason's T's and loose bottoms to be extra comfy. K and seriously THAT is the relationship I need to have with our baby girl! Like, I love that so much!! Seriously sounds like the best thing ever. Thank you for sharing that!! And seriously, names are the hardest thing!! haha I'm pretty set so it's going to take some convincing for Jason
