family days / hikes! / mmmm meals

Thankfulness is a funny thing. There is always¬†something¬†to be thankful for but boy is it easy¬†to focus on the things we don’t have or compare compare compare and cultivate this very unattractive way of looking at life. We have some serious blessings and although I’ll be the first to admit that living with my parents when having my first child wasn’t exactly on my to do list for life, I am ridiculously thankful for all […]

Oh boy oh boy oh boy! I can’t believe this little one is full term in three weeks!!! Now that’s something to be thankful for! How far along? 34 weeks Weight Gained:¬†25.5 lbs. This week we had Greg strap on our 16 lb turkey with an extra 10 lb hand weight to give this lady some sympathy as to why I’ve been tired all the time. I was shocked how heavy them pounds are! Shocked, […]

pregnancy

Today, after spending a considerable amount of time at the DMV and feeling exceptionally ravishing, I dashed my defeated self into Pizza My Heart for a guilty pleasure lunch and got in line behind a man who seemed like he had something to say. “Pizza for the baby, eh?” “Yup,” I laughed. “You make a beautiful momma..” he said as he walked away with a smile and a merry little twinkle in his eye. And […]

A durian. That’s how big this baby is. I have no idea what that is or how to even eat it but apparently we are just running out of recognizable items. On average they say she’s *around* 4lbs and measuring *around* 17in long. I get claustrophobic just thinking about her being all scrunched up in there. And changing the subject.. How far along? 33 weeks Weight Gained:¬†26 lbs… aaaand we are back up. Symptoms:¬†I got […]

that dog Bentley / wedded bliss

There are few things I like more than whole days spent with my husband doing nothing in particular, and beach days with my dog. Well, Saturday, I got both and I was a happy lady. I was thinking this morning what a gift last year was, despite all my brattiness, that we got to spend a whole year just the two of us (and I mean really, it was a lot of just us) away […]

How far along? 32 weeks Weight Gained:¬†23 lbs Symptoms:¬†Well, I cry a lot, but that’s nothing new. Small hills or sometimes just sitting up leaves me completely out of breath. In fact, I just sat up and Greg said, “well those were a lot of noises…” I’m a grunting, huffing, lady of grace these days. Movement:¬†I was sure she was gone this week cause all her little kicks¬†seemed to disappear :( I must say I […]

How far along? 31 weeks! If we are pretending, as all baby sites do, that a baby takes exactly 40 weeks to develop, we have now reached single digits, folks! Weight Gained:¬†22.5 lbs… well going down is¬†a first. Symptoms:¬†It seems all my first trimester symptoms seem to be saying hello again. They must’ve missed me!¬†Still super tired all the time, slightly nauseous, everything smells oh so strong, these boobs of mine have earned their right […]
