Pregnancy and a Toddler

Pregnancy and a Toddler

Being pregnant and having a toddler has been…interesting (and a wonderful lesson in patience). The first trimester was absolute hell. No amount of Zofran could force me to leave the house for those first 12 weeks, which was very hard on my 1 year old E. Thankfully, we (and by that, I mean ‘she’) were [...]

My 2 BFP Stories

My 2 BFP Stories

I love, love, love hearing about how other mamas found out they were pregnant. Since it’s very personal to some, I don’t go out of my way to ask, but I think it’s so neat to find out about how people find out they are expecting a little bundle of joy. I have two sons [...]

Our Family Dynamic: We Are the Munsters

Our Family Dynamic: We Are the Munsters

I met my husband in high school. When Jeff and I got together, we were young enough that we had not yet had more than one other “love” in our lives. Make no mistake— he was, and still is, a handsome guy, albeit a little short, and I’m pretty enough, if a little on the [...]

Mourning the Age Gap

Mourning the Age Gap

A couple of months after my son turned two, I was ready to get back on the baby-making train. We got pregnant with TJ very easily, so I had faith that it would happen for us again within a few months. Little did I know that the universe had other plans for us. I’m the [...]

Bringing Home (a Second) Baby: P.S. It’s not that easy

Bringing Home (a Second) Baby: P.S. It’s not that easy

I have always told my husband that I wanted four children. A few weeks after giving birth to our second son, I have to wonder… what on earth was I thinking? FOUR?! I can barely keep my head above water with two. Bringing Home (a Second) Baby: P.S. It’s not that easy I was 100% completely unprepared [...]

Bringing Home Baby: Ryleigh’s Baby Sister

Bringing Home Baby: Ryleigh’s Baby Sister

When we found out that we were expecting, my husband and I wondered what sex our little bundle would be, but not Ryleigh, my (then) 4-year-old daughter. She said that she was going to have a baby sister. We waited, not so patiently, for the first 20 weeks to pass until it was the day [...]
