We're excited to share the arrival of Coco Grace Cho! Our 2nd little lady (and Ruby's little sister) was born Monday night, October 20th at 6lbs, 3oz. We thought we had a couple more weeks to prepare, but it seemed as though she had other plans. She's only been in the world for a few days, but I already know she's the one we've been waiting for to make our family complete.
We're back home resting, and I'm trying my best to soak up time as a family of four. I have posts and content that's been planned in advance, so you can still check here daily. And I'm sure you'll find a new baby photo or two over on Instagram too while I'm taking some cuddly baby time at home. She's still very new and smushy, so I'll be sure to share more photos as her little self begins to develop…
P.S. Thanks so much for your tips on life with two kids. I'm trying to do my best to take each day as it comes and enjoy both the ups and downs that come with every new chapter of life.
Oh my gosh!!! Congratulations to all … she’s so sweet! And Coco is one of my all time favourite names, hehe! Ruby’s a big sis now! xoxo
congrats Joy! Love the name!! Your family is beautiful
PERFECT name! Ruby & Coco – it should be a children’s book! Congratulations!
Congratulations Joy! Welcome to the world Coco. xoxo … so precious!
The picture of Ruby staring at her little sister is way too sweet. I hope to have my kiddos about 3 years apart, my daughter being 20 months now.
Congratulations! She’s so lovely!
Congratulations to you and your family! The top photo of you and your girls is seriously tugging at my heart strings right now. My little sister and I are 6.5 years apart, so I still remember first meeting her, a tiny smushy thing in my mom’s arms, twenty years ago. The bond between sisters and mama is something truly special and I’m so happy for you!
A joyous welcome to Coco! I hope you’ll do the same photo thing you did with Ruby; once a month so we can see her grow and change. I LOVED seeing those monthly updates! Blessings on everyone in your lovely little family.
Congratulations!!! She looks heavenly!

Hi, Joy! Just came upon this post again through your latest “Little Indulgences” post. Are you wearing hospital gowns in the photos or are they your own gowns/clothing? If the latter, where did you get them? Thanks! 🙂
It’s just the hospital gown!
