Last Thursday I hurried the kiddos into the car and packed up a couple of bags to make our way to Columbus. My sister gave me the good word that she was, indeed, in labor! She was a bit panicky because her water was leaking and the midwives were going to induce her — something […]

Kentucky Round Up!

August 23, 2016

Hey! Did you know we went to Kentucky (or as Ari calls it ‘Tucky) three weeks ago!? Yep! We did! And honestly, the last two-plus weeks haven’t been hard. We’ve just been busy. And I’ve had a hard time concentrating on pretty much everything (helloooooo, three different to-do lists that need to be condensed!). But […]

All moms of newborns understand that their babies are going to cry. They cry when they’re hungry, tired, and have a dirty diaper, the waterworks are on. We understand that it’s really the only way they have to express how they feel. But no one can prepare you for those other moments — the moments […]

Well, it may have taken us 7 hours to make a 5 and a half hour trip, but we finally made it to Kentucky — or ‘Tucky, as Ari so lovingly refers to it — last night. It turns out traveling with two kids, both of which refuse to sleep in the car, is about […]

Hey! We survived another month! I mean, it wasn’t easy. And it certainly was not pretty. But we survived a whole half year! Holy smokes! Before I get into a Remy Bea update, let me just tell you that I’m still depressed. Although, talking about it — both online and in person — has totally […]

Fact: Babies grow up. Fast. Like, really fast. Before they’re born, you wonder how they will look, act, etc. And after they are born you can’t imagine having never held them before. And shortly thereafter you realize that soon they will be mobile. Like, very mobile. Remy may be tiny, but girlfriend is already rolling […]

Weekly Mantra //

This week I’m hoping for more answers. See, last week I mentioned that we found out some answers from our pediatrician. At the age of 10 months, Ari had a really severe allergic reaction to scrambled eggs, which resulted in an emergency room visit at Akron Children’s hospital. Since then, we’ve had a couple of […]

Happy Father’s Day.

Seeing Chad morph from boyfriend, to husband, to father of our children has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I’ve talked before about watching him, quite literally, turning into a father during the delivery of Ari. It was… emotional. And intense. Watching the love he immediately had for our children changed me, […]
