Oh yeah, the blog

Oh yeah, the blog

I forgot all about this thing. Well, maybe not forgot, but I haven’t had much time to sit and blog lately. I’m now 23 weeks pregnant! Ahh! It’s a girl, and she is adorable. I can’t wait to meet her. ❤ Pregnancy this time around has been different. With Atticus, I had typical nausea (but … Continue reading

Ah, pregnancy.

Ah, pregnancy.

I forgot all this stuff. Well, kinda. I was pregnant, what, two years ago? Longer? And I swear my mind forgot how much some of these things sucked. What kind of things? Morning sickness. Ew. It’s getting better now that I’m 8 weeks along, but it still sucks. I have it a lot easier than … Continue reading

We’re expecting!

We’re expecting!

So, we just found out that we are expecting a new baby next Februaryish! Yay! Atticus was born in February of 2012, so it will be awesome having two babies born hopefully in the same month! And I think 2 years apart almost exactly is a good spread between kids, too. I’m only about 5 … Continue reading

I’m back…

I’m back…

Sooo, I took a little break. Not really even on purpose, things just got crazy. First, Atticus got roseola. I didn’t know that’s what it was until the third day so I was panicking for a while. It took about a week for that to resolve (high fevers, then a rash). But the next week … Continue reading

Flat diapers are the best diapers

Flat diapers are the best diapers

When I was pregnant, I made the decision to do cloth diapering because it was inexpensive and environmentally friendly. I also heard cloth diapered babies had less rashes. Nice! So I bought some prefolds and some plain Econobum covers, as well as a couple Thirsties XS covers, and waited for little Atticus to arrive. We … Continue reading

Flashback!

Flashback!

Here I am at 33 weeks along with Atticus. ❤ When I look at him now, it’s CRAZY to believe that I grew him in my body. I remember feeling all his little flutters, kicks, rolls, and hiccups. I have really been missing the feeling of having a little baby in my belly lately… so … Continue reading

Teething

Teething

Atticus has been cutting his first set of premolars! I was shocked a few weeks ago when I saw a huge blood-filled blister on his gums, because I didn’t even know he was teething. But oh boy, do I know now! He has been a big old grump. Not too bad, but enough to make … Continue reading

Easter!

Easter!

Our Easter was very low key. We decided not to go too crazy because Atti is only 13 months old and didn’t seem too into the idea of egg hunting or dyeing eggs, and certainly not candy (he wishes!). So we set out some eggs for him to “hunt” outside, gave him a basket with … Continue reading

My buddy.

My buddy.

I love that I get to spend all day with my baby boy. I am lucky to watch him play and learn and be silly every day. He’s the person that I spend all my time with, the one who sees me at my best and my worst, and the one who listens even though … Continue reading

Innocence.

Innocence.

My sweet baby. I love these moments, when he is fast asleep in my arms, so precious and innocent. This week has been rough. I don’t want to go into too many details yet, but let’s just say that parenting a teenager is harder than you think. And my little sister isn’t even my own … Continue reading
