Baby Introduction: Maybe it’s time to catch up!!

I know what you are thinking! When was she pregnant again? Baby #3 was exactly a day short of a year difference from #2, so this past year was pretty much a blur! This whole having a newborn while super sick pregnant, chasing a 3 y/old while trying to run a business is a LOT harder than I thought it was going to be!

If you have been following on Instagram, this is no news to you, but I am one of the not-so-lucky girls that are sick throughout the whole pregnancy.

I've been sick with all 3 of them from pretty much the day I found out I was pregnant until the week I had them. So when we decided little Copper was going to be our last one, I was beyond excited to be done with pregnancy.

And don't get me wrong I would have LOVED to be able to enjoy pregnancy, to feel the “magical glow” everyone talks about, I'm just not in that club. and I've finally accepted it instead of fighting it.

I do think pregnancy is wonderful and if I had to do it all over again I would, no doubt about it, because no pain is bigger than the JOY each one of them as brought to our lives. I feel even silly to share this part with all of you because I am lucky enough to be able to have these little ones, I know so many struggles with much bigger things, but to me this was big.

I am super excited now that I can leave the sickness behind and enjoy our little ones! There's still not much sleep in my schedule, BUT I have my Mom and Sister here now visiting from Chile, so our house has plenty of hands and I don't think I could be happier! I wanted to share some pictures of our little family

Of course, I also had to share some special close-ups of our newest addition, I am a little behind on his birth announcement, but with the holiday rush of my shop, I decided people are going to have to get them later, like I'm-not-sure-when-they-are-going-out late =]

So you guys get the exclusive here! This is our little Cooper! (Swaddle blankets by mom)

And since my sister was still not here for our first session, this is one of the only iPhone pictures where all of us made it in one shot =]

I am excited to start this year blogging again and with a full boy crew under our roof =]
I hope you all have a wonderful 2017!


Since I cleaned up my blog to make it more user friendly, I only kept the most important personal announcements I've made on the blog:


Love you!

Well! Now I totally understand the break...I chalked it up to being a busy mom with an exploding business. Missed you, glad you're back. Blessings on the beautiful new boy!

Hi Joy! English is not my mother tongue, but I think I've understood what you said. It is a shame people do this. I have followed two of your tutorials and published the results in my blog (you can see it), but linking your web, don't taking like mine. Then "siempre pagan justos por pecadores" and if you stop sharing your ideas, people like me will be lost, because I'm useless at creating my own patterns. Thank you very much for coming back and CONGRATULATIONS for your new baby (at the begining I was confused when I read "few days ago" because in Spain we write first the day an then de month). Good luck in your new begining,

Dear Joy,

Im so so so happy that you are back. You have no idea, how I missed your blogs. If there is any device that can tell you how often a person has visited your blog, probably my name would have came bursting out of that device. As long as you were here, I used to do crafting- learning from your blog. But they you disappeared and I had no idea where to look for inspiration and when I did, nothing helped me as yours.

Please dont leave. :) Looking forward to more crafts and puffy toys .

Love, Uma
