Jun 29, 2017 So happy to be home in our own beds tonight. Still lots of recovering and sleeping to do, but so so happy to be home.
Jun 28, 2017 Sometimes social media gets a bad rap. And sometimes it deserves it. But as I keep looking back over all the family pictures I've posted from Henry's birth and even the past few weeks before that, you know what I haven't thought? I haven't thought, "Gosh, I wish I wouldn't have posted … Continue reading Happy-grams
Jun 27, 2017 Baby Henry is here! He was delivered by c-section this morning and he's just the sweetest, most content little guy. It was a really hard c-section for me (less chipper, more painful), but he's 100% worth it. I'm still on clear liquids tonight, but supposedly in the morning I get to start … Continue reading He’s here!
Jun 26, 2017 It feels surreal to be this ready. House all cleaned up, kids safe and snug in their beds at Nana's house, laundry all folded and put away, baby quilt finished, hospital bags all packed. It seems strange that I'll be waking up in just a matter of hours and walking into labor … Continue reading Last night of pregnancy
Jun 25, 2017 Time is a funny thing. The way it stretches on and on and on right at the end.

(Side note: finally made it through the whole "caves" episode this time. Turns out it … Continue reading Note to self: when you call just to chat and say hi this late in pregnancy, your mom will definitely think you’re in labor
Jun 23, 2017 It kind of feels like hanging out in the waiting area before you board a flight. You've already gone through security and you're waiting for the ok to get on the plane, but in the mean time you're just hanging out there in limbo with your carry-on bags, trying to entertain yourself … Continue reading Airport
Jun 22, 2017 That I'll reach for a new roll of toilet paper and a spider will crawl out from the middle of the roll That a robber will break into our house and get so surprised to find me come home early that they panic and shoot me That I'll develop type 2 diabetes … Continue reading Mostly irrational (but possible) fears
Jun 21, 2017 As much as I've been joking about wanting the baby to come early, it really wasn't until yesterday that I started feeling genuinely ready. The kids and I went to my final doctor appointment yesterday where I hugged the tech who's done all my ultrasounds for the past several weeks and the … Continue reading Getting ready
