Our First Turkey Day with A


Happy day after Thanksgiving! Or Black Friday. Whichever you prefer to celebrate! I’m usually out shopping right about this time, but this year things are a bit different.

Last weekend, while my mother-in-law and I were shopping at Target, we came across the cutest bin of Christmas ornaments. I immediately picked up a furry ‘A’ to start off Adeline’s collection, but then we noticed how cute all of the ornaments surrounding it were. There were several woodland creatures, fur stars, and fur balls, and…

Adeline’s Birth Story


Look who’s back! I’ve basically abandoned my blog for the past week, while I’ve done anything and everything I can to simply survive the first week of being a new mom.

Still Pregnant!

walking at past due date

40+3 today! Still pregnant, folks! Last night I took a good long walk around the lake hoping to get baby girl moving along. The fresh, cool air felt amazing, and I’m sure I received a few “she’s about to pop!” looks along the way. I couldn’t believe how good I felt walking last night, and…

She…
