Jackson : 8 weeks old A whopping 13.5 lb of breastfed goodness Smiley and quite awake Has an umbilical hernia (shouldn’t require surgery and doesn’t require much extra care, just caution and attention) Is going through his fussy stage but I think I figured it out today… he wants to sit up and be present.… Continue reading Jackson
6lb 9oz 2 weeks early born 17/07/2012 And today, at one week old, back up in weight and again some, to 6lb 10oz. He’s the sweetest, most placid little thing. We are so blessed.
This blog post has been brought to you by the letter “I” for “Ipod Photos” Okay girls and boys. I’m slacker of a blogger, I know. No Friday Favorites even. Lame. But I’ve been a busy bee in real life. It’s been some things like painting a hallway, meeting with people at Home Depot about… Continue reading Coming soon to a … monitor near you.
I’ll hopefully be finding out whether we’re expecting a pink or blue bundle at my 20 week ultrasound next month. Boy, that came up fast! We’re pondering the idea of a boy because a) obviously, it could go either way, and b) the heartbeat came up at 145, and both my girls maintained a steady… Continue reading If I Have A Boy
I got put on a waiting list to be induced, and settled in with much disappointment, expecting a long wait. Then at 7pm I got called in. They were going to attempt to induce me with a gel, which might or might not work. We considered me just running in by myself, but decided that… Continue reading Welcome Olivia Christiana
Okay, eviction notice! No, jk. Give me at least another week, so the baby room is ready. Everyone I know is going overdue though, so for all we know I could have this baby anytime between later today (unlikely) and more than a month from now (oh please no.) No joke, I am more nervous… Continue reading Full Term!
Okay, so I am desperately seeking inspiration as far as Baby V’s nursery is concerned. We theoretically have anywhere from 5-9 weeks left, 9 being the maximum they would let me go before inducing me. Single digits all around. Can you smell the fear? We haven’t even STARTED the nursery. I’ve started the quilt. I… Continue reading Inspiration Desperation
Okay, here I am, all up in the third trimester. Yes, I still look like I maybe ate my friends that are due just a few weeks after me. Yes, a bad hair day is a good hat day. Yes, when baby stretches you can see little elbows and knees poking out of my side.… Continue reading 32 weeks

We went for a 3D ultrasound yesterday! It was very cool. The video looks a lot cooler than the pictures and give you a way clearer idea of what baby will look like. A lot like Nicole, actually! Definitely siblings, lol. Quite a chubby pair of cheeks, for 28 weeks, and a very similar nose… Continue reading meet Baby V
