Ivan’s 5 Year Update

Ivan James turned five this month! Ivan measured 3.28 feet tall and weighed 31.79 pounds. Hes a little guy like his mom. Ivan wears 3T clothes for the most part still, but is starting to get into some 4T. This fall we will probably have to size up in pants. Ivan’s favorite food is still […]

Captain’s Log Day 2,766

These past couple of weeks have been hard. Motherhood is so hard sometimes. I’m running on little sleep, and my patience bank is in the red. All of the kids have been trying me in their own ways. Work has been stressful with ever-changing COVID procedures too. I’m single parenting most of the time because […]

Chop Chop

Yesterday I chopped off my hair! I’ve wanted a pixie, or any short hair cut, for as long as I can remember. I’ve really wanted one since I entered into motherhood. Before quarantine, I had decided that I was finally going to take the plunge and do it. I got over my fear of looking […]

Noa’s 8 Month Update

Noa is eight months old! I can’t believe that her birthday will be upon us before we know it. Noa doesn’t have an appointment for another month so I don’t know how much she weighs right now. She is in 6 month onsies and I got all of Amalia’s old clothes out and Noa can […]

It has been a long time since blogging a captain’s log. Life is crazy at the moment. Sylas came down with influenza B over the past weekend and he is on his second day missing school. We’ve rearranged our work schedules for childcare. I feel like I’m sitting in shark-infested waters just waiting for the […]

Noa’s One Month Update

Noa’s Two Week Update

Noa is two weeks old already! I’ll say it till the end of time, this is going way too fast. She is growing and changing so much. She is already losing that newborn look. She outgrew preemie clothes already and newborn things are fitting her really well. She’s getting a little milk belly now too. […]

Noa’s One Week Update

Yesterday Noa turned one week old. Time is flying by, I just want her to stay this little forever. She is definitely coming out of that sleepy phase. Yesterday she was more alert when she was awake, and was awake for longer when she was up. She stayed up a teeny bit later last night […]

Bump Date Week 38

I can’t believe I’m writing this post right now. I was so sure that she would’ve been here by now! I had my doctor’s appointment yesterday where he told me that I am between 5-6cm dilated. I was seriously disappointed to hear that. I was so sure that I’d be at a seven again and […]
