The day before, a year ago…

I have to write this post. Every mom does but rather than writing it tomorrow, I am writing it today because I remember the anticipation I was feeling a year ago today. I woke up knowing that this would be the last day of bed rest & monitoring. I even let myself get up and…

My As-of-Yet Untitled WIP*

*(I’ve been dying to copy all you writerly types) We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our beautiful new baby girl. She arrived March 29th at 2:58 in the morning.  She is 8lbs and 20 inches long. We had a crazy journey getting her here…all the way to the end.  After going into freakishly fast (and…

Nursing Sabbatical

I am not ready to quit nursing Jonah. Although physically, my body has been handling the weaning process quite well, emotionally I’ve been a wreck over this. I feel a huge contradiction inside of myself over what is right and what is selfish. For those who have just begun reading, or for those with short…

When the Dam Breaks

When pregnant I tend to carry my kids way out in front.   This phenomenon becomes even more freakishly impressive in the final days of a full term pregnancy. Lately it has been fun to go out in public and watch people’s reactions.  I, of course, have no concept of how big I look or how pregnant…

Clean up on Aisle 11

I have had a terrific weekend if you couldn’t tell by the title of my post.  My sister and her kids came over for a visit this weekend.  Since her hubby is working twelve hour shifts and we live about two hours from her now, she and the kids just stayed the night.  I had…

Elimination Communication: a crossroads

I can’t help but feel that we’ve done a great disservice to ourselves by taking too long of a break from EC. I wonder with every puddle I have to sop up, if this chapter in our journey may soon come to a close. As Jonah has become more independent during playtime, his cues are…

Remember that talk I had about procrastination

Well… here I go again.  Darn it.  I am trying so hard to be more organized and self disciplined but it is so hard.  I have a couple of homework assignments I need to do and so what do I decide to do instead… post a blog post. It all started this morning.  I normally…
