    Bringing home baby, with a toddler

    So my already sporadic posts are becoming even more sporadic. Such is life. But I really appreciate those of you who read these. I really enjoy doing them and maybe someday I’ll be able to get more regular posts up, but don’t hold your breath. The point being, thank you for being here. Anyways, I wanted to share about how…

    Postpartum-Round 2

    So I’m technically still in the postpartum stage, or fourth trimester as some lovingly call it. Does it ever actually end? But I wanted to recap some major postpartum differences for me this time around. I shared a lot about postpartum when I first started this website, but this time around has been way different for me. I want to…

    Genevieves Birth Story

    I’m happy to say that I’m no longer pregnant. We finally have our sweet girl and our family feels so complete now. I want to share Genevieves birth story for the same reasons I shared Olivers. I don’t want to forget what happened and I think some people can benefit from reading birth stories to help prepare for their own…

    The second half of the second pregnancy

    Well this pregnancy is almost over, so I guess it’s time for an update. Writing this I’m 38 weeks pregnant and in about one week I’ll have our baby so I figure I should get this pregnancy story wrapped up before she’s here.

    2020 Reflection. 2021 Goals.

    Well, 2020 happened. It’s been quite a year and it’s easy to get sucked in to the whole “2020 sucked” mentality. I know it’s been a tough year for a lot of people, whether it’s been job loss, sickness, not seeing loved ones ect. But when I sit down and reflect on the last year personally, it was a pretty…

    The first half of the second Pregnancy

    So in case you haven’t heard the news, we’re having another baby! I wanted to share a bit about this pregnancy so far because I am already 20 weeks and it has been a very different pregnancy from my first. This pregnancy is flying by and I still have so much to do before this second bebe joins us, including…

    Spring/Summer recap

    I feel like most of my posts begin with an explanation as to why I haven’t posted for a while. And here we are again. I think I’ll bypass a lengthy explanation and just say, it was summertime with a 2 year old. I was busy. That being said, the renewal for my site is coming up and I have…
