Five Favorite: Postpartum Edition

Well, we have made it halfway through the 4th trimester! It has been WILD to say the least. In the midst of birth recovery we sold our house and are now heavy into packing and prepping for an out of state move. Charlie is a dream baby. He just goes with the flow and loves […]

Charlie’s Birth Story

It’s probably not the greatest mom move to say that Charlie’s birth was my favorite, but I’m going to anyway. Not my favorite kid (they’re all my favorite!), but my favorite birthing experience, I think. I claim this partly because he is my last. Because I want to go out on this whole pregnancy and […]

Welcome Charlie!

Well, we all knew he would eventually come! Our sweet Charlie Koehler chose to be born on March 4th at 7:47pm. We made it to 41 weeks and 6 days, just a few hours before my midwife and I had decided to break my water in an effort to coax him along before the 42 […]

40+ Weeks

Well, depending on which due date we’re rollin’ with I think I am officially more pregnant than I’ve ever been! Each pregnancy has gone longer for me (ranging from 39 to 41 weeks) and this little guy seems to be snug as a bug. At this point, I’m not quite sure if he’ll have a […]

Jemma and American Girl’s Courtney Moore Debut Their Totally Cool Playlist

The moment Jemma heard about American Girl’s new historical doll, Courtney Moore, she exclaimed, “Mom! She’s the same year as you!” And yes, Jem is correct – Courtney is from the year 1986 and yours truly was born that same year! Courtney, you have aged me, but I’m not even a smidge mad about it. […]

23 Weeks

With previous pregnancies I have chronicled A LOT here on the blog. And this time, well, I haven’t. As in, this is the first official week survey update. More for me than you. So just bare with me :) Truly, I was so sick early on. Then I started to feel better and hit the […]
