My beautiful grammy got to come visit her first great granddaughter this week, so obviously this picture was mandatory. I think she might like her a little bit :) No one told me about the shirt situation that was happening so sorry. Hello there Left! Anyways, she is one very loved little girl. I hope she always knows that :)

We had an outing

Actually we’ve had several outings but this one was farther than 15 minutes away so it was kind of a big deal. Yes, we went to our beloved cheese shop. We hadn’t been back since we were first pregnant and didn’t know it yet – hence why we ate and sipped on all things pregnant ladies should not have (and whoops – the bad mom points started early with this one). This time there was cheese and wine […]

Thank You!

wedded bliss

Oh man, this motherhood thing is kinda amazing. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that we appear to have the easiest baby of all time…. which is kind of freaking me out. She hardly ever cries, she pretty much sleeps through the night with maybe one or sometimes two feedings, she just cuddles and coos, she keeps her legs in a perfectly upright position whilst changing her diaper. It’s freaky. I just know something is either […]

Happy One Week, Little!

Abigail Elizabeth / baby #1

Today, at 5:20, my little girl turned one week old. We celebrated with a cupcake or three. I really can’t believe her first week of life is already over. She has already grown and changed so much and I don’t know how to make it stop! Slow down, little girl! Please slow down. She makes me so proud to be her momma. The noises that come out of her are just the most adorable sounds […]

Abigail Elizabeth: A birth story

Abigail Elizabeth / baby #1

It’s like a bedtime story except it leaves you wide awake and in horror. Just kidding. I have never worked so hard for anything in my life and ohmygosh was she worth it. Labor is one of those things that no one can possibly describe or prepare you for – something you really just have to experience for yourself to fully grasp. Ours started around 2:30am when I felt a suspicious trickle as I was lying in […]

40 Weeks – Happy due date baby!

baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

Today is what we shall call her sentimental due date. It was the date I got when I first found out I was pregnant and had happily cemented it in my mind until our doctors appointment, many weeks later, that involved bursting my Jan 8th bubble and correcting it to Jan 9th. Stupid bubble bursting doctors. Alas, I will always be fond of January 8th. Plus, it’s her great grandmothers birthday so that would have […]

From that one time when I freaked out just a little bit

pregnancy / the daily life / why do i act like a child

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” ~Helen Keller Some days can be kinda crappy. This started out being one of those days. Mostly because I woke up grumpy and was determined to stay that way for the rest of […]

baby #1 / bump / pregnancy

Hey guess what! This is the year my daughter is going to be born! How far along? 39 weeks Weight Gained: Sigh.. 32.5 lbs. And this is about the time I curl up in a ball and ask my husband to come console his giant wife. Symptoms: Sciatica has come back with a revenge once more. I’m getting a taste of what I’ll look like when I’m an elderly woman. On top of the spasms that make me […]
