Organizing photos, baby books and memories

Organizing photos, baby books and memories

I feel like I’m constantly behind on a million things I want to do…but maybe that’s just life with kids?  Lately I’m obsessed with wanting to write things down for my kids so they have documented memories forever.  I think a lot of it has […]

36 weeks: Pregnancy 2

36 weeks: Pregnancy 2

I haven’t been great about documenting this pregnancy.  Meaning, I haven’t.  I’ve taken pictures about 5 times, and have a pregnancy journal with 4x more blank pages than written on.  This is compared to my pregnancy with Jenson…where I took a picture every single week…even […]

Pregnancy thus far ~ 20 weeks

Pregnancy thus far ~ 20 weeks

I’m almost 21 weeks, so over halfway through this pregnancy!  Funny how I was doing weekly updates/pictures when I was pregnant with Jenson, and this time I’ve barely mentioned it other than the announcement.  Turns out, I don’t have a lot of free time these […]

I won! Passing the glucose tolerance test

I won! Passing the glucose tolerance test

Now that all of the genetic screenings and major ultrasounds are done and we know that the baby is developing quite well, there’s nothing else to worry about, right?  Wrong!  Nothing puts fear into a sweets-loving pregnant lady than the glucose tolerance test. I passed […]

What to really expect when you’re expecting

What to really expect when you’re expecting

I realized I never wrote about the little surprises that I encountered during my pregnancy, so I started jotting some of them down a week or so ago.  I felt like I knew a lot about pregnancy and “what to expect when you’re expecting”, but […]

Baby Watch: Week 37

Now I really feel ready for the baby.  The house is about as ready as it needs to be and he’s considered full-term now, so he’s welcome to join us anytime!  Unfortunately, my cervical check on Friday showed no progress again – actually she said […]

Baby Watch: Week 36

I can finally say that I feel ready enough for the baby to come.  All of the clothing through 6 months is washed in the closet or bins ready to be put away.  The nursery is pretty well organized – just have to decide what […]

Baby Watch: Week 35

The nursery has furniture in it finally!  We got the carpets cleaned over the weekend, so Lo was able to move the furniture into the nursery on Monday with Chuck’s help.  We were busy almost every night of the last week.  We took a baby […]

Baby Watch: Week 34

Th nursery furniture is finished!!!!  This is incredibly exciting news!  And I’ve painted the trees on the nursery walls!  I could stand to finish out some of the branches and add some leaves, but it’s good enough so far.  The crib arrived, but we aren’t […]

Baby Watch: Week 33

Another week without complaints!  AND the glider rocker is ALMOST refinish.  If I haven’t said it enough, never refinish a glider rocker and stool.  I just need to check for paint touch-ups tomorrow and then Lo can add the poly coat to it.  The dresser/changing […]
