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 to do with how much Marlowe is changing, and how […]

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 purchasing the appropriate size fruit or veggie that coincided with […]

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 days!  Just one more difference between a first and second […]

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 the test easily when I was pregnant with Jenson, but […]


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 there were still plenty of things that surprised me.  Everyone’s […]

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 50-75% thinned but not dilated.  She encouraged me to do […]

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 setting it up or putting the rest of the furniture […]

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 table just needs to poly coat added as well.  Next […]
