Give me one good reason

This dress didn’t really get to live the life I intended for it, as I talked about HERE, but it wasn’t actually a maternity dress—I just wanted it to be one. We don’t get out much, so there haven’t been any occasions to get dressed up, but I’ve been trying to put more of an […]

Growing pains

**I actually started this post two(?) weeks ago, and have just been able to get back to it now. That’s life with a baby, I guess. Could just be hormones, but it has been a very emotional few days around here. Big talks and big changes abound, and all the while, I am trying to […]

Things I miss, don’t miss, won’t miss, and won’t forget

When quarantine first started, I read THIS article on Man Repeller, and I thought that it was a nice way to take stock of what we’ve lost and gained during the last few months. I wanted to start the series on my own blog, but of course, I had a baby and never got around […]

Out and about

Miles and I have been going on daily walks (mostly with Pablo), but I finally took him out of his stroller today! I’d been holding off on taking him out of his stroller because he’s too young for sunscreen, and I want to protect his little bod from sunburn. Also, I’m a bit of a […]

Highs and lows

Hi, just over here learning that every day with a baby is a roller coaster ride. One minute, you’re feeling more and more comfortable and confident about your parenting skills; thinking that you’re really getting the hang of it. You get so comfortable in fact, that you take a few moments to shoot a cute […]

Going solo

Today felt like SUCH an accomplishment. Not only did I get to shower today, I also got Miles and I in matching outfits—mostly so I could capture a cute #ootd—and I even put on lipstick! Sure, my hair isn’t styled, and my outfit is basically a sack, but still. This is the first time I’ve […]

Roller coaster

By now, I feel like I’ve told this story about a thousand times. However, I promised a birth story, so you’re going to get one! I should preface this post by saying that I am going to get into some potentially TMI territory, but what’s the point of sharing a birth story if I don’t […]

Love in a time of COVID-19

This really wasn’t the birth story post I’d planned to write, but alas, this is our reality right now. I wanted to publish this ASAP, because we’re still in the middle of self-quarantine and social distancing, but some people continue to seem to not take this seriously. Today (April 8), at 12:50am, I gave birth […]

"Go bag"

As I pack what I hope are enough adult diapers, it occurs to me that I am packing for a journey with an outcome and a destination that I am totally unaware of. Hell, I don’t even know exactly when it’s going to start! **Decided to leave that intro, ’cause I like it. However, I […]

Baby prep: nursery

A small win of social distancing has been that Kane and I have nowhere to be but home, which means we’ve gotten to finally tackle the nursery, which up until now, had been woefully un-ready for a baby’s arrival. Kane and his mum took on the task of painting the room white—a nice update from […]
