Open letter to Baby A

Dear Baby A, So…today’s Wednesday, which means I’m 3 days overdue now. Just thought I’d point out a few things… You just missed our 3 days of summer weather. Now all those cute sundresses and onesies will have to be covered up with a hoodie and blanket. If you wait until the weekend, I might … Continue reading

The other blog

I started a separate baby blog back in October with the intention that it would be only for family and close friends. Well, after the “bike” and “bird” parts of my regular blog slowed down I realized that the baby part had taken over my life, so why not share with everyone? You can read about my … Continue reading


I’ve been asked a lot of random questions lately so I thought I’d answer them here. Q. Did you pick a name? A. Yes. Q. Will you give us a hint? A. Here’s a hint: don’t ask 🙂 Q. You’re all belly. What’s the secret? A. Aw, shucks. That’s the best compliment you can give … Continue reading

39 week update

Heading into week 39. Only one week to go…or so I thought. I guess a lot of first-time mothers go well past their due date, some up to two weeks!! Uggghhhh. I can’t imagine another three weeks of this. I have not complained much about my pregnancy but I’m going to now. Humor me, OK? … Continue reading

37 week update

In less than 3 weeks we’re going to have a daughter.  Like, a teeny-tiny baby! Baby A is considered full-term now so anything can happen.  In theory we’re ready- car seat installed, hospital bag packed, classes completed.  Now we just have to sit and wait. Speaking of sitting, I’ve never sat so much in my … Continue reading

Blown away

I really owe Seattle an apology. This city is home to some of the kindest, most amazing people ever. So yeah, some of them are uh, really quirky (that’s being nice) but on the whole I can’t think of a better bunch of people. I am totally blown away by the amount of support Eric … Continue reading

35 week update

Another week has come and gone. I feel like time is both flying by and standing still. I’m ready for Baby A to make an appearance, not because I’m uncomfortable or anything, but because I’m ready to start our new life. In due time I suppose! We sure did a lot last week. The nursery … Continue reading

Weekend roundup

Last weekend was full of highs and lows. Rather than explain everything I think I’ll just post a list of thoughts and observations. In no particular order: 1. Seattle is so much better when it’s sunny and warm. 2. Seattle drivers panic in sunny weather. 3. Unexpected ultrasounds can be daunting (but all is OK). … Continue reading

Heading into the homestretch

Wow. 33 weeks already. Seriously, where has the time gone? Seems like only yesterday I was sucking wind at Starcrossed and wondering what happened. Ha!  Hard to believe that Baby A once resembled a teddy bear…with a tail: Now she looks like a mini-baby: At 33 weeks I feel like I’m finally getting used to … Continue reading

Pregnancy product review

Now that I’m almost 8 months along I consider myself somewhat of a pregnancy veteran. I thought it would be fun to review some pregnancy-related products that I’ve bought and also pass along some tips that I wish I knew earlier. Sleep I think the third trimester is nature’s way of prepping you for the … Continue reading
