We’re so happy that our little man has arrived safe and sound … and that he has a name :) His birth story is both a full and fast one. Once I get my bearings, I’ll be back to share!

Due Dates Come and Due Dates Go

IMG_1486

Today, I’m two days late. Late for what? Well … MY FOURTH BIRTH! Hence, another belly photo instead of a sweet little baby face! Except, harping on “late” is actually quite silly because I know due dates are merely guess dates. Due dates don’t mean nothing, per se, but they definitely don’t mean everything. This time though, […]

It was a hazy day in early August when I met my amazing photographer at Tolmie State Park for maternity photos. I was about to hit the 35 week mark and the baby bump was definitely ready to be captured in all its’ glory! Christine of LCS Photography has taken all of my maternity photos […]

The Pregnant Mom’s Non-Alcoholic Cocktail

  It’s Labor Day Weekend annnnnnnd, guess who is NOT in labor? ^^^ This girl ^^^  I’m “celebrating” … I think. One, because I’m not due until Friday. So, it’s not like I actually expected to be in labor. In fact, I’ve gone a few days late with every baby so I’m fully expecting a 41 […]

39 Weeks

IMG_1181

How far along: 39 weeks on the dot Gender: A big ol’ bundle of boy! Weight gain: It’s to the point where I don’t feel like myself. A big part of it has to be the summer heat and how swollen my feet and legs are. I’m +45 pounds or so and that sounds like a beast to […]

Where There Is Fear, Find Faith

IMG_0646

It’s no secret that I dislike giving birth. Pregnancy is generally pretty great (although the lack of ankles I’m dealing with right now are less than pleasant) and the mass rush of love once baby is in my arms is pure perfection, but the unknown hours of labor and the whole “giant baby coming out […]

35 Weeks

35 weeks

Max snapped my photo at the state park yesterday while I hobbled around trying not to lose my footing. He turns 5 this week and I can hardly believe that 5 years ago I was just days away from birthing a 10 pound, 4 ounce little boy … and now he’s just. so. big. And awesome. […]

The Just Between Friends Sale Is Happening NOW!

End of summer/early fall means lots of things, but one of my favorites about this season is that Just Between Friends sales are happening … hallelujah! What is Just Between Friends? Well, let me tell you! JBF is by far the best way to shop for kids. From clothing to books to toys to baby essentials … JBF […]

IMG_9346

New babies bring lots of changes. And not just for me and Dominic, for our whole family. The big kids are very much anticipating this new baby, but I think they’re sensing the growing responsibility of having a new little one around too. Currently they tag team Reid like champs. That boy can’t get in […]
