Eight-month Update On Our Little Man

Every time I start to write one of Emory’s updates, I glance through my past updates on him and each time I want to ugly cry!! How is our baby so big already (also a repetitive statement in each of these update posts)? I thought time with our first flew by, but this, this is […]

SIX-MONTH UPDATE ON OUR LITTLE MAN

Time is moving fast, but I’m pretty sure our Emory is moving faster. He’s calm, but he’s so sneaky and quick. A ninja, really. Grabbing at spoons when we feed him, pulling at his sister’s hair (in a playful way of course) and trying to crawl and pull up on some of his toys. And […]

The Next Time You See a Pregnant Woman, Tell Her She’s Beautiful

Last weekend, my husband and I went to lunch just the two of us in the downtown area of the city we live in. We decided to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather while we shared some guacamole and a Mexican dish. It was in-between lunch and dinner, so the restaurant wasn’t very busy, […]

One Month to Go!

Guys… I am so ready to have this baby. As much as I love my sleep and our time as a family of three, I am one tired mama. These days, I find myself daydreaming about being able to wear normal clothes and sleep on my stomach again. I can see the finish line! More […]
