Eli’s Birth Story

IMG_2261

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

babymoon to CA

Did we leave our Disney loving kids behind and fly to California by ourselves for a little babymoon? Yes, yes we did! AND IT WAS WONDERFUL! Disneyland and California Adventure without kids is a grand experience. Not relaxing per se (we walked 25 miles in 3 days!), but calm. We didn’t have little ones to […]
