Forest’s Birth Story


Warning: This is a very long post, at more than 6K words. I had to write it all down for my sake. Photos at the end. As I said in my post announcing the birth of Forest, his birth was not anything near what I’d envisioned all of these months. It all probably started with […]

Forest Katahdin


Forest Katahdin, born 9/3/2014 at 12:12 am. He shares a birthday with my paternal grandfather, who unfortunately Forest won’t get to meet since he passed away two years ago. Almost 24 hours ago this little dude arrived into the world! It’s hard to believe it has already been a whole day since he came into […]

Looking Forward | Post-Baby Products


Last week I said I would talk about some of the products I’m looking forward to trying post-pregnancy. Here’s a run-down of some of them.

My other go-to comparison for my legs and feet are tree trunks with root flares. I longingly look outside at the things that […]

32 Weeks | I Can Still Touch My Toes


…without bending my knees! That’s an accomplishment, if I do say so myself! It’s nearly mid-July, not quite midsummer. When folks found out my due date was very early September everyone was all “Summer! Pregnant in the summer is going to be miserable!” Well, it hasn’t necessarily been miserable but it has definitely put a […]

Counting Down: Almost 31 Weeks & 9 Weeks Left


Taken a week ago at my parent’s house at one of Teddy’s baby showers that was held over that weekend. Late 29 weeks pregnant here. Y’all. I’m officially counting down the weeks now. I can’t believe that I have just July and August to get through and then Teddy will be here! At least, of […]
