Well! Yesterday was my due date. And just writing that out probably needs to be more okay with me, so here I am—40 weeks, 1 day, with my now historically late boy pregnancies! 😉 Going past my due date feels like some sort of mental barrier for me to conquer. When I remember that I had ten days of this with Luke, I am speechless.. how we survived, I have no idea! Well anyhow, I am experiencing a lot of contracting Continue reading “40 weeks + 1 day!”
Well! It’s hard to believe that we’re 38 WEEKS now. It seems like time is slipping through my fingers and then, in other moments, I’m reminded that pregnancy is simply can feel like a long haul beautiful beast of a thing! I am at the stage where I’m too tired to copy and paste the sections I’ve been covering in these posts so I suppose Continue reading “38 Week Pregnancy Update”
Babies require a lot of gear! I can’t even guess how many of these checklists I’ve read over the last five years—probably an embarrassing amount. For first-time parents, dipping your toes into the overwhelming amount of gear is tricky. I had no idea where to begin and what we’d really need. There are so many things to choose from and they come in so many varieties. And then it’s fairly inconvenient that newborns and babes are a very particular bunch (as are the parents that come with them!). Some babies take a bottle or pacifier, some don’t. Some love the swing, others scream.
The products you try to guess will be the favorites might end up in the giveaway pile, so there can be some guesswork. But I thought I’d take time to get down the items that have been so helpful to us. This is our comprehensive must have checklist 🙂 And I’ve created a printable registry checklist that’s at the bottom. Happy preparing! Continue reading “Ultimate Baby Registry Checklist!”
Baby brother’s due date is coming closer and closer! We are 34 weeks tomorrow and I’m a little in shock at how close the finish line is. I’ve had little thoughts here and there about labor and delivery and what’s coming and it’s difficult to believe that’s all around the corner. Continue reading “34 Week Pregnancy Update”
This is pretty much the position I’ve wanted to be in these last few days. I am feeling the fatigue of the third trimester, and waiting patiently for the insane nesting energy that is to come. Continue reading “30 week pregnancy update”
Just a little bumpdate—26 weeks! Things are going well right now, and the weeks are flying by. And before the updates, i promsied a gender reveal.. it’s a boy! I know, I know, a bit anticlimactic as far as gender reveals go, you are most welcome 😉 But we are excited to know there’s a little mister joining us. Luke is elated to be “evened up” and keeps computing little brothers age in conjunction with the rest of the Continue reading “26 week bump (and gender reveal!)”
23 weeks! Which means 17 to go, and that is blowing me away in this moment. We have had quite a buzz of excitement in the last few weeks with this 23 week little babe, mainly finding out gender and noticing this belly getting b-i-g (maybe with some assistance from the holiday cookie dept). Continue reading “23 weeks”
Our little Emma is here!—she arrived last Monday, just about an hour or so into her due date of 9/4/17 (aka Labor Day)! Ha. Ha.
We are all in love and soaking in the baby scents and sweetness because gah, in my happy place! We just LOVE this newborn phase 😍
I’m in the end of days! Well, hopefully. I’m 39 weeks as of yesterday so hoping she is ready to meet us now. Having one come early and one come so late really messes with your mind. My friend told me this morning her third was the latest, so WHO REALLY KNOWS but either way, put a fork in me I’m done! I thought I’d try and jot down some things I’ve loved having this time around.
Pregnancy clothes and brands and items seem to change SO FAST! Things I had with Luke (and Kate!) are already out of production and on to the next company, next trending brand, etc etc. And that’s only two to three years. My favorite maternity leggings changed materials on me (the comment section of that item was hilarious, people were triggered to say the least). So, while they’re here, these are my faves!
