I’m still here

So it's been a minute, huh? A new baby will do that to ya. On June 12, our family was surprised and blessed with a baby boy! And a big one...9 pounds, 4 ounces! We knew that baby was gonna be bigger than brother, who was 8 pounds, but I was not expecting a baby [...]


When all you want is a shower

The weather finally took a turn for the better this weekend. Just in time for other things to take a turn for the worse. Maybe not worse...but gross. As Spring is finally in full bloom, my husband's schedule has picked up as well, meaning I'm on one-on-one defense with our son on Saturdays. It's cool, [...]

Unintentional Ketosis

So this weekend was a productive one. We are damn near finishing the nursery, with just a few minor things to complete. I also started pulling out the old baby supplies and newborn clothes and blankets to start stocking the necessary supplies. First of all, holy crap, my son had a ton of baby clothes. [...]

What the hell is this?

What the hell is this?

Today is Friday, April 6 and it is snowing outside. Damn near blizzard. We're expecting 1-3 inches, with another round of snow on Sunday. This stuff has to stop. My baby belly refuses to get squeezed into my winter coat any longer. I literally had to suck in the best I could to get it [...]

Everything Hurts

I feel like I've written this post before. I'm falling apart. My body, that is. My mind, however, has never felt stronger. Well, I do have the foggy pregnancy brain, but emotionally I feel pretty confident. Nonetheless, I woke up this morning feeling like I got hit by a bus. Let me lay out the [...]

I caught the fever

I started my day by throwing out four organic apples that I thought had bruises all over them. I bought a bag a few weeks ago and when grabbing one to toss in my lunch bag today, found these dimpled little stragglers and thought their prime had past, so I reluctantly pitched them, save for [...]

Hi, I’m Irritable.

Hi, I’m Irritable.

Where to start? I'm in pain, tired, and thoroughly annoyed. Let's start with the pain. Remember I was experiencing some back pain? Yeah, I thought it was just my son's new mattress that was making me achy. Haha...hahaha...oh the naivety. After a trip to the zoo yesterday, we sat down for a snack break. When [...]

I hit a wall

I hit a wall

I need a nap. Seriously. I got one of the best night's sleep I've had in a long time last night and I'm still tired. This baby is sucking all the energy I have. Let's talk about this sleep I got last night, while I cross my fingers in hopes of not jinxing it. I'm [...]

I tried to run

I'm not talking figuratively here. I mean actual running. No, I wasn't trying to get in a good cardio session. Running has been pretty low on that list for years before I got pregnant. We got a break from our brutal winter last weekend and were blessed with some sunshine and mild temperatures, so we [...]
