Half Baked – 20 Week Update

Well, we have officially reached the halfway mark. I have my ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow so we can find out the gender and they will do the anatomy scan. To say I am nervous is an understatement. I just want everything to be okay, I don’t really care what the gender will be but IContinue reading “Half Baked – 20 Week Update”

Surprise! I’m Pregnant this Time

Y’all I don’t know who is more surprised by this pregnancy but let me tell you, its been rough. Though it may have taken us by surprise, the excitement has been growing with each week that goes by. I’m not going to lie or sugar coat it but I was terrified when I found out.Continue reading “Surprise! I’m Pregnant this Time”

#this_is_postpartum

I saw this on Instagram and got the courage up to join the movement and support fellow mamas! This is my postpartum…(summed up of course! There’s so much more I could say) It’s the XL jogging pants you keep wearing because it’s the only thing that fits comfortably. It’s the throw up/ booger stained shirtContinue reading “#this_is_postpartum”

Introducing Baby B

Lets try this again…even though Baby B is already 4 weeks old, he still deserves an introductory post… I know this post would have been written differently had I written it 3 weeks ago like originally planned, but having two babies is proving to be a lot more difficult than I anticipated. So Baby BenjaminContinue reading “Introducing Baby B”

A Letter to my Daughter on her First Birthday

Where have the last 12 months gone? I can’t believe I spent the last 365 days watching your every move. Literally. I didn’t want to miss a thing.

The first time you latched onContinue reading “A Letter to my Daughter on her First Birthday”

Overwhelmed

I had so many plans for this weeks blog post. I wanted to either finish Nora’s birth story and finally get it posted, I wanted to write a “Letter to my Daughter on her First Birthday,” or something else special to symbolize the day. But of course I had the busiest week like ever. AContinue reading “Overwhelmed”

DIY Cake Smash

I’ve been looking forward to this day for MONTHS. I have spent countless hours on Pinterest looking at other cake smash photo shoots so when we decided that I was going to do them myself instead of paying the $200+ to get them done, I had high expectations. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances with BabyContinue reading “DIY Cake Smash”

Going into preterm labour pt 2

The ambulance ride to the other hospital was the worst. I really think they should invest in some new shocks. It was so bumpy, that I felt like I was flailing everywhere and the contractions were getting worse and worse. All I wanted was to curl up in a ball to stop the pain butContinue reading “Going into preterm labour pt 2”
