Something we choose {#wholemama}

Happy September, All!  My younger one turns two next week. I can't believe it. My older one will be three and a half on the same day and our baby is due five days after that. Five days before our 4.5 year mark in our marriage.  This might tell you something about what my 'purpose' … Continue reading Something we choose {#wholemama}

Celebratory Pause and Baby Countdown! {#WholeMama} 

We are counting down the days til this baby is due to make an appearance. At least I am. We have about 4.5 weeks and I am so looking forward to it.  But with that knowledge comes the need to get things done. I am slated for a week of jury duty next week. I'm … Continue reading Celebratory Pause and Baby Countdown! {#WholeMama} 

Books for the Journey: Pregnancy, Birth, Breastfeeding and Baby

I can't imagine going through childbirth without any information about the process. But maybe that is just my western mind reflecting the emphasis our culture has put on head knowledge and the fear that generally surrounds birth. Last time I read a few good books, but I really didn't feel like I has time to … Continue reading Books for the Journey: Pregnancy, Birth, Breastfeeding and Baby

Closing in.

The days between now and our new little one are getting to be fewer and fewer! Since she could technically be just as late as Ranger was, this time I'm not counting down the days til the 'due' date. I'm just happy with the knowledge that each day is a step closer. Pretty exciting. Meanwhile … Continue reading Closing in.

What I learned in July {a link-up}

It is permissible to buy clothes that fit you. I was hemming and hawing over a couple sleeveless tees from my wonderful box of hand-me-down maternity clothes trying to think of ways I could make them work. Then I realized: the colors were boring (black and white), the fit was bad, and really the only … Continue reading What I learned in July {a link-up}

This time around.

(Last week at 30 weeks!) Pregnancy this time around has been a bit different. During the first trimester I was a little more nauseous (but still hardly nauseous at all compared to some people). I think it had more to do with being less able to control how much rest I got because of the … Continue reading This time around.

Summer Maternity Style: Dress Review

Summer dressing is very much different when you're pregnant. Last pregnancy, all of my obviously pregnant months were during the cold winter. It was fine and dandy. I just never wore a coat (well, maybe a couple times when it snowed!). I rocked the layered look with sweaters, scarves, skirts and leggings. It wasn't horribly … Continue reading Summer Maternity Style: Dress Review

A house and other random details. :)

My guys are resting adorably on the couch. We thought the babe was up from his nap, but he fell back to sleep snuggling with his daddy so they both get a snooze! It's like when Ranger was little! We have been busy as bees recently. Wednesday, our realtor, my uncle, sent us information on … Continue reading A house and other random details. :)
