So this happened…

April 29, 2014

(Let’s pretend I didn’t just completely neglect this space for the better part of the past year and jump right into the here and now, shall we?) This kid joined our family: Silas 7 pounds, 11 ounces 20.25 inches At first he looked like this: All nice and pink*, and perfectly happy not impressed to […]

Queen of my Castle

November 5, 2013

This is going to ramble a bit… Way back in July (August?) we decided we were just going to go ahead and announce this pregnancy so I could freely talk about it here.  Of course that pretty much meant I would have all of the energy (and will) sapped from my body immediately and I […]

O-oh here she comes.

July 28, 2013

On Friday, I had the earliest ultrasound I have ever had. My due date was moved back two days, I got to see our teeny tiny, and hear a little heartbeat. It was awesome. I’ve been sinking into that constant nausea that slowly takes over and envelopes every movement, every breath, every second of the […]

You know what they say about plans…

July 20, 2013

35 is tricky. At least it seems to be for me. On one hand, we are finally in a house, feeling settled. On the other hand, my body is starting to rev up for the big change. Or so I thought. Apparently the ladies in my family all have biological clocks that expire in the […]

Eleven O Five

August 4, 2011

When I was pregnant with Judah we knew he was going to be big. I mean, that’s what it seemed like from the ultrasounds. It’s hard to tell with Polyhydramnios though, all that fluid skews things a bit. When he was pulled out my OB said “He’s not 6 pounds!” to which I said “He’s […]

Make Plans, God Laughs.

July 12, 2011

  Isn’t that what they say? We’ve been waiting for my sister to have her baby for weeks. Things didn’t seem to be moving along and she finally had a plan to get things going on Monday evening, followed with an induction on Tuesday if she didn’t deliver over the weekend. Friday night I texted […]

D-Day (Let’s get it Started)

July 3, 2011

Today is the due date for my lovely and talented sister’s first baby. This is her first child and the first girl in the family. To say we are excited is an understatement. This will also officially give me a new title- AUNT! I’m the only one with kids in my family and I am […]

Heart, Meet Sleeve

June 30, 2011

I’ll admit it, I wear my heart on my sleeve.  For better or worse, that’s just how it is.  When it comes to blogging and social media this can be a good and a bad thing, especially when it comes to parenting choices. Social media is spectacular for finding like-minded people to support and commiserate […]

Bringing Home Baby: Then and Now

March 24, 2011

When we brought Judah home from the hospital, I couldn’t help but notice the similarities and differences in that first days compared to the first days and weeks home with Lincoln and Wyatt.  Both times we went to be discharged, someone (I’m looking at you Lincoln and Judah.) had a bilirubin spike leading to hours of testing and […]

C-Section Bliss

November 22, 2010

I’ve had two pregnancies.  Both were terrible ordeals fraught with constant nausea and vomiting until long after 30 weeks.  I wanted to be a happy while I was pregnant.  I wanted to have that glow and contentment.  I hated pretty much every minute past 6 weeks.  Until the end that is. With the twins, once […]
