3 Weeks Postpartum Update

It’s been three weeks since our world grew. THREE WEEKS since Emily Ruth entered our lives. The time is flying yet crawling simultaneously.

While 99% ofContinue reading “3 Weeks Postpartum Update”

Emily’s Birth Story

One week ago, I gave birth to the most beautiful, most perfect, most incredible little girl. I cannot believe it has already been one week… while Connor can’t believe it’s ONLY been one week. While we’re all doing great, my physical recovery is moving at the speed of light, and my emotional recovery is slowlyContinue reading “Emily’s Birth Story”

Stay Bump-to-Date! My 40 Week Bumpdate

Who would have thunk that we would be here? 40 weeks and 3 days pregnant! Emily is just too comfortable in there.

Fall Haul 2020

It’s almost the best time of the year… FALL! Fall is my absolute FAVORITE season.

Stay Bump-to-Date! My 38 WEEK Bumpdate

Happy FULL TERM to our baby girl! We are officially in the, “Okay, you can come any time now!” stage. We both think we jinxed her early arrival by speculating about it so much- we are now fully expecting her to show up AFTER her due date (and probably close to my own birthday!). ^^^IContinue reading “Stay Bump-to-Date!

Stay Bump-to-Date! My 37 Week Bumpdate

Holy Moly! 37 weeks pregnant. We are so freaking close to meeting Emily. This past week I have felt so many changes in my body.

We’ve made it to the final month of this pregnancy! It has been such a whirlwind of a year. Becoming pregnant with our first child during a global pandemic was certainly not what we had in mind.

Favorite Quarantine Finds

For much of the world, especially the United States, the past 5 months have been something straight out of a Hollywood film. Literally. Ever seen Outbreak? Highly recommended.
