We are overjoyed to introduce you to the newest Pizzazzerie addition. 🥰 Ivy Hombs Whitmore joined us on September 3, 2020 at 12:42pm weighing 8 pounds 8 ounces and 19 inches long. 

After a fertility journey that left us waiting for many years along with suffering losses, we are completely in love with this sweet rainbow baby. The gender was a surprise to us as we waited to find out. I was sure I was having a boy, so I was completely shocked to hear my husband announce “It’s a Girl!” and we couldn’t be happier to add another sweet girl to our family. 

Big sister Blakely hasn’t taken her eyes off of Ivy since we brought her home!

Having a baby during these unique times was certainly unusual (no visitors, etc) but we have made the best of these precious days with our newborn! She’s why I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog, but you can catch our daily updates over on Instagram (@Pizzazzerie). You’ll be seeing new posts here very soon, however! 

P.S. Ivy wasn’t the only baby that arrived the first week of September. My latest BOOK – The Southern Entertainer’s Cookbook –  is out and shipping! You can order it here
