Bridget & Matt Are Having a Baby!

Time to Celebrate

Cue the confetti and alllllll the happy tears because we have A LOT to celebrate today!

Matt and I are having a baby! Saying I’m beyond excited to finally share this news with all of you is an understatement!

And to make our already sweet surprise even sweeter, our little munchkin is scheduled to make his or her debut on Valentine’s Day… just in time to steal our hearts forever!


We are SO excited and feel beyond grateful for what’s to come.  


Of course I plan to take you guys along the way as we prepare for Baby Mac, we already have so much to catch up on! But since I didn’t want to overload this post with the past 4 months of information and our plans from here, I figured I’ll answer ALL of your questions on the blog this Friday. Drop your question (anonymously… or not so anonymously) in the form below and I’ll try to answer as many as I can in Friday’s post.

In the meantime, thank you so much for all of your love and support. We feel beyond blessed to have this baby on the way, and we are so fortunate to be able to share our exciting news with all of you.

  • Rebecca Pappas

    I got so excited when I saw this post! Yay!!! Congratulations!

    • Awww, THANK YOU Rebecca!! Can’t wait to bring all of you along for the ride!

  • That means so much to me that you stopped in and commented today, thank you!! So far so good! #fingerscrossed

  • Congratulations!! We had our first a little over a year ago, and our second is not too far ahead of yours. Little ones are so precious!

    But there is more truth in the statement “Prepare to never sleep again” than I realized. The first month is a blur and it is hard to get the sleep you need, then it gets easier, and then when teething starts, it goes back to being a bit of a challenge. But don’t go it alone! You have each other. Tag team! And don’t be afraid to call on family and friends to help whenever you feel you need a nap or a hand at cleaning/tidying. 🙂

    Congratulations on the wonderful news!

    • I love this advice Jacquelyn!! I am someone who definitely goes to bed VERY early so the lack of sleep is probably what I am most nervous about. Thank you for keeping it real… I appreciate that. =) And thanks for all of your support, we are so excited!!

    • You’re welcome and, again, congratulations!

  • Congratulations!!! So looking forward to seeing this nursery! Advice: give yourself a lot of grace, especially in the beginning and the (lack of) sleep can really suck BUT…the whole “sleep when the baby sleeps”…definitely do that. I still do that sometimes and my son is 4. =)

    • Thank you Diana, love this advice!! Napping while the baby naps sounds like the only way I’m gonna make it. Ha! Thank you!!

  • Amberle S


  • Shawnna

    Congratulations!!!! So excited for you and Matt 🙂 Looking forward to seeing how you’ll be dressing your cute baby bump, what the nursery will look like and of course all the DIY projects!!!!

    • Thanks so much Shawnna!! You are so sweet and we could not be more thankful for your support!!

  • Congratulations!!! The best news!! Can’t wait to follow along on this journey with you all!! Wishing you a healthy and smooth pregnancy!! All the best to you and Matt!

  • Annie Dunn

    CONGRATULATIONS Bridget and Matt!! 🙂 As a mother of 5, I got so excited when I read about your happy news to us! How exciting! I loved being pregnant AND giving birth and hope that your experience is just as memorable and enjoyable as mine were! OH! Ask your doctor if YOU can pull your baby out… yes, YOU!! It’s the BEST, most memorable, bonding moment of your delivery! Trust me, you won’t regret it! 🙂 That “last push” won’t hurt, and here you get to bring your precious child into this world!! Again, CONGRATULATIONS to both of you!! 🙂 Feel free to add me on facebook and ask any questions if you’d like! Best wishes!

    • You are so sweet, thank you so much Annie! And congratulations!! Mom to 5?!! You sound like a superhero!! Thanks for offering your advice, so valuable coming from someone who has so much experience. =)
