Our Nursery

I knew from the get-go I didn’t want to find out the sex of our baby. I had my reasons, and eventually convinced Josh that he didn’t need to know the sex of our baby either. That did, however, leave us with a dilemma. What would the theme of our nursery be? Just as for […]

Working Mom Guilt

I stayed home from work on Monday. Sam had been sick all weekend and still hadn’t kicked it by Sunday afternoon. I debated with myself for a good ten minutes before I brought it up to Josh.   “I probably should stay home with Sam tomorrow, right?” He agreed.   I sent a couple texts […]

Bump Jealousy

I always have a plan. I have ideas set in my head of how things will look and how things will go. And things always happen exactly how I imagine they will.   Just kidding. But what a cool superpower that would be, right?   When I got pregnant, I couldn’t wait for my big […]

To all the C-section mommas who didn’t want it…

To all the C-section mommas who didn’t want it…   I see you. I hear you. I am you.   A c-section delivery was never in my plans. But when my baby needed to be delivered 6 weeks early and his heart rate was dropping, a vaginal delivery wasn’t an option and a c-section became […]

My Birth Story – Part 2

You can read part 1 here! Being told I was going to have my baby 8 weeks early were the most terrifying words spoken to me in my entire life. I wasn’t ready. Baby wasn’t ready. This wasn’t right. On the second day of my hospital stay, I cried to my husband that we hadn’t […]
