Jun 19, 2017 No baby yet, so no birthday cake tomorrow. But! Cheesecake! Bryan is the least-sneaky gift giver I know. Ordered gifts on Amazon, took the kids out on his own today, and casually walked upstairs tonight with a roll of Christmas wrap. I knew what he was when I picked him up. I … Continue reading Things from today
Jun 18, 2017 Either I don't remember what real contractions feel like and I'm starting to have some sporadically orrrr I don't remember what real contractions feel like and I'm not having them yet. Either way, I'm not in labor yet. Or I might be?
Jun 17, 2017 Sometimes we see so many beautiful snapshots we forget what it is we really want. What we choose and strive for. Is it really to have ourselves and our children dressed in the savviest colors? Or just to be well outfitted for life? Must we always have the very best of everything … Continue reading Satisfied
Jun 16, 2017 If tiredness from a super normal low-key day were a sign of labor then I'd have had the baby by now. ...instead I'm watching shows with Bryan while we wait for the laundry to finish. ...because I packed go bags for all of us in case the baby comes early and now … Continue reading Zzzzzz
Jun 15, 2017 Hooray! I finally launched the quiet page kits!

There's been no movement on that homefront. At this point I fully expect to pick up Olivia from her last day of school and … Continue reading Ok, the baby can come now
Jun 13, 2017 Welp, there's only one thing left on my hand-written to-do list of things I need to do before I can start selling the quiet page kits! Sadly there are a few other things not written on the list that also need to get done, but the point is, I'm ridiculously close. And … Continue reading One thing left
Jun 12, 2017 I've been going to sleep and waking up with a lot of the same thoughts lately. I suppose being just a little over two weeks from the scheduled c-section has that effect, especially when I'm mentally preparing to have the same surgery for the third time. I hope the baby comes early … Continue reading Sleeping & waking thoughts
Jun 11, 2017 I'm really grateful that most of my days are so uneventful that I often have a hard time thinking of what to write about. Or that the most eventful thing that happened today is that we accidentally forgot Felix's beloved snuggle bear at Bryan's parents' house after the family dinner, but they … Continue reading The blessing of an uneventful life
Jun 10, 2017 Only 17 more days until my scheduled c-section. It seems so crazy close, but also still hasn't fully sunk in. We're trying to make the most of our time before he's born by getting house projects done and get everything ready and settled as much as we can. Today Bryan worked from … Continue reading True wealth
