Eli’s Birth Story


Eli’s birth story is both very long and very short. Long in the fact that starting September 12th I was on bed rest due to severe dehydration and vertigo (Eli was born on September 15th), short in that it was just 1 1/2 hours from the onset of active labor to babe in arms (such […]

Reid’s Birth Announcements By Minted

When my chunky little man was still in utero I ran across the perfect birth announcement for him. It was from Minted, of course, and the moment I saw it, I just knew. Seriously, as I hovered over the preview, I could imagine my little squish’s photo and I 100% fell in love. The gold foil, […]

As with many wonderful stories, Reid’s birth story begins the day before his actual birth day. On December 31st, the final day of 2015 I had finally resided myself to the fact that I would NOT be having a baby in 2015. Sigh. With a due date of December 28th I always knew there was […]

Wanted to pop in and share some of the details of our little man’s birth! This is just the first peek – there were so many exciting twists and turns and I’m still amazed that we’ve been snuggling for over 36 hours! At this point with Jemma’s labor/birth she had only been born for an […]
