Body After Baby: 4 week update

I can’t believe my girl is 4 weeks old already. On the one hand, it seems like these past 4 weeks have gone by really quickly but on the other hand, it feels like we’ve always had her with us. Strange contradiction. I can honestly barely remember being pregnant with her. That massive bump isContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: We Got Germs

This week marks 4 weeks since I gave birth to the Little Lady. My how time flies. I can’t believe how big she’s getting already. I was just looking at pictures we took in the hospital right after she was born and she’s grown so much. I love that she’s having more times of alertness.Continue Reading

My Baby’s Birth Story- Part 2

So when we last left off, I was large, round and completely exposed on the operating room table. My heart was pounding and I was desperately awaiting Hubby’s arrival into the OR so I could have some assurance that everything was going to be ok. Not long after, everything was checked, Hubby was brought inContinue Reading

My Baby’s Birth Story-Part 1

Adjusting to the New Normal

My little girl is now 2 weeks old and I think I’m finally exiting that initial exhausted fog. My body is adjusting to feeding a very hungry little girl (seriously…she was 9lbs at birth and at 2 weeks old, is weighing in at 9lbs, 5ozs. My milk is clearly super charged since we were nearlyContinue Reading

Mayhem Monday: On my own again, plus a Disney Giveaway

After two weeks with an extra set of hands, Hubby is officially back to work today. I’m not entirely sure how this week, or even today is going to go but I’m guessing it will involve a lot of patience and even more coffee to get through. The Little Lady is nearly 2 weeks oldContinue Reading
