6 Weeks Later

^Scared I was going to drop her^ lol So, 6 weeks later after delivering baby Jacob and I’m alive and well lol. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, adjusting to having a newborn at home and our new family dynamic but I feel things have settled a bit and we are adjusting well to our new normal. It’s getting easier to go out and enjoy life and do things outside of the house. Callie has adjusted well and is totally in love with Jacob. She kisses him all the time, baby talks him, and always wants to caress him. […]

Hello World! Jacob’s Birth Story

Well, it’s been a week since little man joined our little family and we couldn’t be happier. He truly is a special little boy 🙂 So to start off; let’s just say that I had somewhat of a “birth plan” that went flying out the door when the day came lol. I had a doctor’s appointment Thursday 3/23 and by that time my mucus plug had started to come out and I was dilated 1cm. I still didn’t think much of it and thought Jacob would arrive later but by that Saturday morning (3/25) at 6:30am I started with contractions. […]

Maternity Shoot

Hey Everyone! So I’m here, still pregnant…. hoping little man comes soon but you never know. I’ve had mild cramping here and there and as of yesterday I was dilated 1cm but that’s about it. Anyway, so to be honest we weren’t going to do a maternity photoshoot, mainly because we had already taken several pictures throughout the pregnancy AND the best timing to take photos (I think) is towards the end of your second trimester or beginning of your third and we had missed that window. That’s when you have a cute belly formed but haven’t gotten too swollen […]

Baby Boy Nursery Tour

Hi Everyone! So I’m keeping myself occupied while we wait for little man and I wanted to do a nursery tour 🙂 I really love how his room turned out. I mention where I got most of the items in the video. So about that wall- I had asked a contractor how much he would charge me to do something like this and his quote was for $700!!! Not that he overpriced because it is a lot of work but mainly because we didn’t want to spend that much. So I googled, pinterested and youtubed and finally came up with […]

I’m Nervous

Let me just say that the last month of pregnancy is one of the hardest, not only physically but mentally and emotionally too. And the last TWO weeks are even harder, one – because at this point you thought you would have the baby by now since technically you are full term at 36 weeks and everyone keeps telling you “any day now” and Second- because on top of the physical heaviness and extra weight, you get really anxious and nervous about D Day! Not only is my body exhausted and seriously ready to pop but I’m really nervous. Even […]

Our New Home

Hi Everyone!!! So it has been a looooong weekend and it seems like it just doesn’t end! Just some history- we were supposed to close on this house December 30th but the seller had an emergency and left the country so we had to reschedule for the Jan 6th. The people buying our house were gracious enough to let us stay a little longer in our old house but that meant we had less time to get everything out once we did close on the new house (4 days compared to 7). We finally closed last Friday on our new home and […]
