Second Baby Guilt

As I sit to write this, it is 11 o’clock at night.  I promised myself I would get into bed tonight and get some MUCH needed sleep, but as I headed to bed there it was…the nagging feeling most moms know all to well.  A bit of guilt.  Yesterday, I hit 28 weeks with my second baby.  I get extra…

Wyatt’s Birth Story

Hard to believe it’s been nearly 7 weeks since we welcomed Wyatt into our family. Even harder to believe it’s taken me that long to write out his birth story! I forgot how time-consuming life with a newborn is – then add a toddler in the mix. I’m trying to soak up as much time as I can with both…

40 Weeks Pregnant – Update & Lessons Learned

Most people who know me will tell you I’m (almost) always on time. Like RIGHT on time. I don’t like being too early (can’t stand waiting), but also stress when I’m late. Remember how I said H is a lot like me in this post? Well, her baby brother is a different story right now. However, at 40 weeks +…

A letter to Harper Rose

Oh, my sweet girl. How your world (and mine) are about to change. I am so proud of the little person you’ve become. I say “little” because whenever I call you my big girl, you say “I’m not a big kid yet, mommy.” I’m okay with that. Stay little as long as you can. Growing up is overrated, any way.…

Oh, Boy! Amazon Prime Day & My Favorite Finds for Baby #2

It’s PRIME DAY! I don’t know about you, but I get overly excited for a good deal. Especially a deal on practical, everyday items. Sure, the Nordy’s sale is great, but I know I don’t need any of those items. So excuse me while I scour Amazon for all the bargains today… like 2 years ago when I was scoping…

Baby S2 is a…

As I near the 30 week mark, I realize I never “officially” announced baby S2’s gender… and if it’s not on social media, it didn’t happen – right? 😉 Well, baby is a…

Season of Change

I didn’t believe them. I wanted the crying to stop. I wanted more sleep. I wanted to feel like my body was mine again. They say it gets better. And trust me, it does. SO much better. But tell that to someone in the throws of it. Tell that to someone who often struggles to see past the here and…

Baby #2 – Surprise?!

This post is a long time coming…and a little long-winded, so bear with me friends. I mean, this is totally what happens when you “re-launch” a blog and don’t get a chance to post again for a while. Lindsey and I are working to get ourselves on a posting schedule so we don’t leave you all hanging this long again.…
