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.


  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. Congratulations Joy! SO wonderful, love the name and Ruby looks like she is going to be an amazing older sister. So happy for you xx

  5. Huge congratulations to family Cho! And great choice of name, BTW – one of my favourites, so good I named my favourite sewing pattern Coco, hehe! xx

  6. Congratulations on the newest member of the family, Joy! I hope you, Bob, and Ruby will get a lot of downtime together to spend with little Coco. She’s adorable!

  7. Oh how sweet! I love the picture of Ruby looking down on her new sister. She is taking her all in and it’s so precious. Congratulations to all of you!

  8. Congratulations to all members of your family!!!
    You need to change your instagram information: ” and mama to Ruby AND COCO”… ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Awww! Welcome to the world, Coco!!! I am SO delighted at the news of Coco’s early arrival! What a glorious, marvelous surprise! Congratulations to you and your beautiful family, Joy! xoxo (I might add, if I may, that going from one child to two DOES NOT make for double the “work” — having one kid was SUCH a walk in the park, if you know what I mean…?!)

  10. Congratulations to all of you!! I love having two little girls and you will too! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love her name paired with Ruby as well!

  11. OH JOY, how wonderful…COCO CHO. That is THE cutest name ever! Congrats to the whole family and best wishes for this special bonding time as you welcome Coco into your nest!

    Love her name. That one is on our list for baby #2, but we’ll see if it’s a girl! (not sure it would go over so well for a boy ;0)

  20. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚
