Today, Jay and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary and eight years from the day that we first met outside of the Pour House in Moore Square, Raleigh, NC. I have a shitty memory when it comes to events (I’m AMAZING at birthdays, phone numbers, and names), but I remember the events of April 27-29 […]

Identity.

[Note: This one took me a four days to write. I still don’t know if I am quite expressing myself in the way I intend to, but I’ve wasted four days and need to move on.] I am in that weird place where I am trying to figure out who I am as a mom. […]

The Adventures of Zach & Zoe Begin

I’ve got six weeks worth of post ideas built up to share, so you’ve been warned…] THE ADVENTURES OF ZACH AND ZOE BEGIN… …well, okay, […]

Zach’s First Time at the Dinner Table

Man, this is my third video post in a row and I have one more for tomorrow or Saturday. Having a baby has made me lazy, lol. Since Zach loves to sit up or be held up to look around and has been able to hold his head up on his own for a while now, […]

Zach’s Birth

Man, it’s hard to believe that it’s been a week since Zach’s entrance into the world. Here’s what happened: My water broke at 5:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 12. To my knowledge, I had not been having real contractions beforehand. I had some Braxton Hicks contractions that began that afternoon, but they weren’t painful. I […]

For My Two Boys

This post is not going to be an update, but merely a reflection. I am feeling very reflective today. Jay and I are about to celebrate the birth of our first child, our son. Back on the morning of October 7, when four pregnancy tests came back positive, I never thought June would actually arrive. But […]

39 Weeks!

Well, another week, and yup, I’m still pregnant! I know four gals who had their babies over the last four days. It feels like everyone is having babies but me. Meh, mine must take after his father, because he is still hanging out, in no rush to join us out here. I was born at 34 weeks and Jay […]

Nursery, Phase 3: Decorating!

Jay & I have made even more progress on Baby G’s nursery! We still have a few things left to do, but this is pretty much the finalized look. We got the shelving from IKEA and the wall art/mobile/bedding from Babies R Us. A word of caution to anyone considering buying bedding from Babies R […]

38 Weeks

Well, not much to update this week. Had my 38 week appointment this morning, but there was no change. Still have a soft cervix, still not dilated. I know the cervix checks mean absolutely nothing, but when you’re waiting impatiently, it just sucks to not know what’s going on. I feel like every week, I […]
