February 4, 2016

OK, first and foremost there will be some TMI in this post. You’ve been warned. 😛 Perhaps this post is only for people who are totally, totally, OK with the honesty of childbirth. And also, Moms. All moms can handle this stuff. Another note, I’m totally, totally, suffering from Mommy/Newborn brain. Some words escape me […]

See Part 1 of Remy Bea’s birth story here. Okay, I know I said the last post was going to be super long, but this one is even longer… sorry! I really should have known (or at least checked) to see that it was a full moon. However, the rest of the regular ER was empty. […]

Bear with me… this is a bit lengthy… Guys. I was desperate — absolutely desperate — to go into labor. On Thursday of last week, my due date, I saw my OB. I was only 2 centimeters dilated and not at all effaced. I was incredibly disappointed that the next words out of his mouth […]

A PSA to our friends + family // It’s not you, it’s me.

It’s not you. It’s us. Well technically, it’s both. This may be the most uncomfortable blog post I’ve ever written. But here it goes: We will not be accepting visitors for a few days after this baby is born. If you’re nodding but saying “Surely, she doesn’t mean ME, though“. Sadly, yes. Let me explain: […]

farewell to three.

I’ve been clinging to some Moosh time as of late. Big time. I know our time is coming to a close as a family of three. And it’s making me super emotional. Super emotional for my first baby. And for what bringing a second baby into the family means. It means less one-on-one time with […]

Life has been crazy busy lately. But we haven’t actually done anything lately. Seriously. Here’s the long + short of what we’ve been up to as of late: Nesting. I’ve been mega-nesting as of late. Like, when I’m not nesting, and I’m trying to do something else productive (like sleep), I’m THINKING about nesting. It’s […]

farewell 2015

bye2015

Looking back on my photos from 2015 (because, let’s face it — that’s the easiest + quickest way to glance back), it’s clear that my year was comprised of the following: Moosh playing. At parks, at Cafe O’Play, at home, etc. We definitely had no shortage of playing in 2015! Cooking. Me cooking, specifically. Which […]

Christmas 2015 // that’s a wrap!

ITSAHERO-XMAS-MORNING

Guys – my holiday hangover is still in full-force. … and I didn’t even partake in any ‘party’ festivities, so to speak! Ha! But seriously, something about celebrating Christmas leaves everyone in a post-Christmas lull. For me, it’s a mix between that and pregnancy exhaustion. But I’ll blame it on the holidays. 😉 Christmas Eve-Eve […]

Dear Old Cranky Woman at the Cable Store: I wanted to say thank you for reminding me that while everyone else I ran into yesterday was sweet and kind, there are still people who will be bitchy to strangers for absolutely no reason. While Ari and I were minding our business, waiting our turn, you […]
