Are YOU Done Having Babies?

As I organize my older son’s closet, I am finding the most precious of memories in the form of pictures, school projects and love notes.  Last night, we all sat on the floor and looked through it all, which made me teary eyed.  Even my kids said they felt emotional.  My oldest commented, “those were good times mom…good times”.…

Baby Update - 34 Weeks!

Sharing the pain

Every delivery story is different. Mine involves my husband looking at some monitors and telling me when I was having a contraction. (Thanks, honey. I knew that.) I figured he was just nervous and didn't realize what he was doing. At no point of time did I want to throw him out of the delivery room.…

Baby Update - 33 Weeks!

This’ll be a quick update this week. My brain has been just fried every night, but I wanted to at least get this out!

How Far Along: 33 Weeks!

Baby Size: Lil’ Ziggy is now probably over 4 lbs and is about 18 inches long.

Belly: Chris seems to think that I’ve dropped a bit, but I’m not so sure. I feel like I’m fuller on the lower part of my belly, but I don’t feel like anything else has come down yet. Unfortunately you…

Sept 2014 - Monica + Chris-10 edit

I loved this blog post that my friend shared with me about the “warnings” we get when we’re expecting. It was so uplifting and encouraging.

Baby Update – 32 Weeks!

How far along: 32 weeks. Only 8 weeks left to go. HOLY CRAP!

Baby size: Lil’ Ziggy is about 3.75 lbs and 17 inches long. I don’t doubt it.

Belly: My belly pic seems to make it look like my belly is oddly pointy this week, but I think it’s just the jeans I’m wearing. I don’t think there’s a HUGE difference in terms of how big my belly is. It definitely feels heavy though.…

Hey, Dads. Let's talk.

I fondly recall my husband holding our son, smiling at him and saying over and over again: "Da-da. Da-da. Da-da. Da-da." Our son smiled at him and laughed. And then, when he was six months old, our son said his first word: "Mama."…

Grandma wants you to have more children

For the decade I was with my husband before we wed, my extended family had one question for us: When are you two getting married? Every family reunion, wedding of one of my cousins or catch up phone call somehow elicited that question.…

Facing My Fears In Pregnancy

I have this repeated dream that I am lying strapped down to an operating table, people are moving quickly around me but ignoring my cries of pain. I pass out and its the end of me.
