Decoding baby clothing sizes and brands

Decoding baby clothing sizes and brands

When I was pregnant with Jenson and first starting looking at baby clothing, I had no idea how confusing baby clothing sizing could be.  The one thing I knew was that my 7 nieces and nephews (at that point) were all over 8 lbs., and […]

Day in the Life: Wednesday in March

Day in the Life: Wednesday in March

I haven’t done a “Day in the Life” post since January since my first day home alone with both kids.  Things have settled down more since then and we’re on a slightly better routine and get to leave the house sometimes since the weather is […]

Volleyball after baby…yikes

Volleyball after baby…yikes

My spring volleyball league started last night.  I played in the spring league after Jenson was born too, but that was almost 5 months postpartum…not 2.5.  And I worked out most days of my pregnancy with Jenson, unlike with Marlowe.  And I had lost all […]

My biggest nursing supporter

My biggest nursing supporter

You might think that my biggest nursing supporter is Lo, or even my lactation consultant.  But no…it’s Jenson.  Although sometimes he gets mad when I have to feed Marlowe and he wants to sit on my lap and read, he’s more than happy to demonstrate […]

Highs and Lows: February Friday

Highs and Lows: February Friday

Friday was full of highs and lows for me and the kiddos, but even with the lows (and all of the spit up/vomit), it was a good day.

Getting back on the (yoga) horse

Getting back on the (yoga) horse

It’s time.  I had my 6 week checkup…had to step on a scale, lol.  I gained over 10 more with this pregnancy than I did with Jenson.  I’m finding that, like many women say, it doesn’t fall off as fast with subsequent pregnancies as it […]

Levon, Levon! (and funny sleep stories)

Levon, Levon! (and funny sleep stories)

Jenson isn’t the easiest to put to sleep at night.  He’s not particularly difficult, but it takes an hour and he “needs” one of us to sit outside his door until he’s asleep.  Sometimes he sings or talks to himself, sometimes (often) he wants us […]

The pressure is on

The pressure is on

I’m at 30 weeks now, so in 9-11 weeks, life is going to get MUCH busier and harder for a bit.  Let’s not forget that there are 2 major holidays within those 9-11 weeks that also need to be celebrated, shopped for, decorated for, etc. […]

Could he look any more like Lo?

There have been times when Jenson looked a little like me (when he was an infant), and occasionally he makes faces that are similar to mine.  But, seriously.  Is he even mine?? Last week a lady in Hobby Lobby asked me if I was babysitting […]

Practicing his temper

Practicing his temper

As I’ve mentioned, Jenson is all about daddy right now.  He gets tired of being with me all day long, so when Lo gets home, he doesn’t want to leave his side (“daddy, daddy, daddy” anytime Lo walks out of the room). Lately, he’s been […]
