This baby’s coming!

This baby’s coming!

This is a 36-week belly. And today we’re already 37 weeks! Baby has definitely dropped. (I’m nearing the point where I’m certain if he/she drops any lower, they’ll just fall out, but Midwife Shannon assures me there’s a much longer process to the whole thing.) I started taking a liquid calcium/magnesium supplement, aaaaaand I’m sleeping at […]

The One-Day Snowman

The One-Day Snowman

We got a good snow over a week ago and were determined to use the sunny, slightly melty Saturday afterwards to build a great snowman. Especially because Friend/Neighbor/Former CoWorker Imelda had given us a snowman kit as a present! It was a great morning quite deserving of hot cocoa.

Nesting, drawing, sleeping, crawling

Nesting, drawing, sleeping, crawling

So there’s this condition called nesting, and I’ve got it. The baby’s dresser is fully organized (as is the entire room!); pictures have been placed around the main floor (okay, so that’s something that should have been done a long time ago, but apparently I just needed the motivation of laboring at home to git ‘er done); […]

Rapid fire updates.

Rapid fire updates.

On January 1, James declared that plunger-ing our toilet once and twice a day would not be welcome in the new year. So with YouTube behind him and an elated wife in front, we marched off to Lowe’s with confidence and determination. James has really upped his handyman skills thanks to other neighborhood handymen and is […]

Some ways they play.

Some ways they play.

Ever since Jen showed back up in our lives a year ago, our mate intake has increased. I give the kids a couple sips throughout the week. Well, except for Jumpy; he/she gets what I get, mmm. Wait. Maybe that’s why he’s so jumpy! I know, I know, I’ve talked about this dollhouse plenty, but […]

Baby Three

Baby Three

1. My hip pain continued to increase until I was at a breaking point two weekends ago. The most severe pain is while sleeping, which is also when your mind is most susceptible to discouraging thoughts. Really hard to fight back when you’re barely awake. Up every two hours or less, finally get up to take […]

The Little Miss

The Little Miss

Jaeda wears her “Cinderella” shirt and skirt as often as she possibly can. Slash every skirt/dress she owns is called her Cinderella dress. And she loves drinking soup–grapefruit soup, pineapple soup, actual soup:) This is my dress. James…had words (or at very least a facial expression) when I put it on her, but I absolutely […]

The Little Mister

The Little Mister

Corban’s figured out the best “warmers” of the house and how to get as close to the heat as possible. I can find him here or on his favorite floor vent in our room at any time of day, but especially in the mornings in his pjs. (We’ve surely suggested long sleeves and socks, but […]

Bringing in 2015

Bringing in 2015

New Years’ celebrations bring the best combination of friends, games, laughter, and finger foods. We still have some salsa that we keep buying chips for. Oh man. I’m hungry. And fruit and homemade mint marshmallows covered in chocolate?! That’s it. We need to celebrate NYE at least monthly. Kids played for a bit and then […]
