With baby number two, I’m a hospital bag pro.
I totally am kidding, but I do have a few essential items that I believe should be in your bag, for baby and for you.
Being overly prepared is my thing. I had a big bag packed for Z and I when he was born. I used probably 10% of the things in there. This time—I’m only packing essentials.
And I have this bag packed 21 days before my c-section date…because you seriously never know. (And oh my goodness…21 DAYS!!!!!!!!) Continue reading
One of my goals for 2018 is to be more real, open and transparent.
I decided, and I have no clue why, to keep track (for one day!) of all the lovely things that go on when you’re 34 weeks pregnant. I’m sure it’d be funnier if I was 38 weeks pregnant and blogging about this–but 34 weeks will suffice.

And I was even hoping we’d be living in a warm, sunny place (aka: Florida) but I believe that didn’t work out because we are meant to be here, in the mitten. Continue reading

Here I am, still not having anything to write but feeling confident that as I sit here, typing, the words will just come. I’m going to take a stab and say I’m in a writing rut.
And quite possibly at the same time…a momma rut. Or a life rut. Continue reading
As most of you know, we had our gender reveal party this past weekend.
I definitely had mixed feelings because with my first pregnancy, we didn’t find out the gender, and that was amazing. I loved that. I loved the not-knowing…
I have been a mom for over 13 months (longer if you count the 9 months of pregnancy) and I've always recognized what a miracle it is to grow a child inside of you and it's another miracle to give birth! Continue reading
