Captain’s Log Day 2,374

We are finally out of the sickness woods. I have never been more ready for summer. Between the sickness and the flooding rains we’ve had, I am so excited to be outdoors. We have been outside every evening since the rain stopped. Unfortunately the rain and floods have wiped out several roads and bridges in […]

Bump Date Week 23

Few! I’m getting to that part of pregnancy where its kind of hard to remember how many weeks I am! This week was wicked guys. The flu had us down for the count for an entire week, and then some. I’m still coughing, and my belly is so sore from that. I am pretty sure […]

Bump Date Week 19!

Its week 19! This week baby girl is measuring just over 10 inches from head to heel and about 10.5 ounces. Lately I’ve started to notice that she uses up all of her energy over a couple days, being very active and seemingly awake most of the day, and then has a rest day where […]

What Not To Say To A Pregnant Person

This pregnancy, I am just generally annoyed at any given time. It doesn’t take much for me to snip at people for something they say or do that makes me just eyeroll. I’m so hormonally angry this pregnancy. I get in bad moods that I can’t conceal, so people definitely know when to give me […]

Line Progression

Its no secret that I am addicted to pregnancy tests. When it is the only thing to keep the mind at ease when waiting for that first doctor’s appointment, you do what you gotta do. I’ve been testing almost daily – I did run out for a couple days and bought more – and my […]

Bump date Week 4

Its day one of week four! Unfortunately, Monday night, I came down with a bout of food poisoning and was violently sick all night, every hour. I’ve never been that sick. I know it was the food because within four hours of eating, both my dad and I were sick and later Tuesday afternoon, Amalia […]

Captain’s log day 2,229

Our household is finally on the mend. Well, Javier is still coughing, but I think it’s almost over. We had a weekend away planned for Javier’s birthday but we had a blizzard roll in instead. I was kinda sad that we didn’t get to go celebrate, but we had a great lazy weekend at home […]

Amalia’s Nine Month Update

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly this time goes by with little ones. Amalia is officially nine months old! She is ever-changing these days it seems – well except for her petite size. She can still wear 0-3 month onesies, 3-6/6 month pants and size 2 diapers but somehow can wear a 9-12 […]

Amalia’s 4 Month Update!

This month has brought a lot of changes for Miss Mali. She is steadily outgrowing the little baby stage and moving into the mobile, playing baby phase. At her doctor’s visit, she weighed 10lb 12.8oz. The doctor was a little concerned with her weight not doubling at the 4 month mark like babies are “supposed” […]
