Thoughts: Shifting

As grateful as I am for the life that I have, I think I spend a lot of time…wallowing, for lack of a better word.  I do a LOT of thinking about shortcomings, my own, and sometimes even those of the people around me.  Not that I think anything is necessarily wrong with that, but…

3 Weeks

So Little Miss Zoe is now 3 weeks old.  She weighs about 9lbs now, which is blowing my mind!  We ran out of her first package of newborn size diapers just in time, and she’s now in size 1s. Also blowing my mind. Glad I hadn’t opened a new box of those! She’s awake more…

First November Randoms

The transition to a mom of 2 has been…interesting.  To be quite honest, I’m feeling very much in limbo.  I expected to feel exhausted, and overwhelmed, but instead, I’m just…here.  Existing.  Maybe because Zoe doesn’t really “do” anything yet, aside from sleeping, looking, and nursing. Speaking of nursing, LORD this child can eat!  I spend…

And Another One

(This is a birth story. A pretty detailed one. Not gross, but detailed, so….read at your discretion!) So…last Tuesday night, at about 11pm, I started having pretty strong contractions.  I didn’t really think anything of it, since the Sunday before I had been up all night with contractions as well, and nothing happened.  No labor,…

Starting the Week

“You haven’t had that baby yet!?” O_O. I’m guessing we’re there now. Texts, phone calls, people that I see often while out and about all asking this idiotic annoying sweet question. Because you know, I would obviously not make any type of pregnancy announcement. Anyway, I was actually pretty sure that it was that time…

Waiting Game

Those are the words my OB used at my appointment yesterday. Today makes 37w4d of this pregnancy for me. Of course we all want Zoe to bake as long as she needs to, but honestly? I’m ready when she is. And knowing that she’s full term, I would honestly prefer that it happens sooner than…

Oh, October

So here we are….the month I’ve been looking forward to basically all year. Zoe will be born this month!  She’s due in 28 days, to be exact.  And I still haven;t done anything about a hospital bag.  I think I had it packed at 30 weeks with Izzy, lol.  Believe it or not, I still…

Randoms

I officially no longer have an office. My work computer has been disconnected since last week, when I finally took my desk out of the nursery, and it will remain that way indefinitely. it’s actually…..relieving! We took Izzy to the zoo on saturday, which we thought would be great fun. -_- Izzy was pretty indifferent…

35 Weeks, Again

So, this weekend, we finally got the oppurtunity (Time, nice weather, far enough along in pregnancy) to get some shots to document Zoe’s immenent arrival. 38 days, people.  We went to the same park that we did for my pregnancy with Izzy, when I was about 30 weeks along.  Then again, when Izzy was about…
