27 Week Pregnancy Update!

Remember when I used to do pregnancy updates when I was pregnant with Ari? Well, here’s my first pregnancy update for baby #2!

It won’t so much be a pregnancy update than an update. But it’s related to pregnancy, so now we’re back to pregnancy update. Okay, I’ll just get on with it.

This baby moves way more than Ari ever did in the womb. (more…)

Oh, It’s Been Awhile…

I haven’t updated this blog in a little while. And the longer I go not writing in it, the harder it is to get back into it. Scrolling through all my photos the past few months, I can see that there are a lot of gaps to fill. So without further ado, here is a quick – but long – bullet point photo dump.

  • I went on my first girls’ trip without Ari or Russell. I traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina! I went with a fellow mommy friend and it was one of our first trips without our kiddos.

Our Family

I haven’t had the energy to want to blog as much because changes are happening…

Baby #2!

Yup! We’re expecting baby #2 on November 2018! We also found out a couple weeks ago that…IT’S A BOY!!

Will blog more once I am out of the exhausted phase of this pregnancy. 🙂

Ari is ONE!

Ari is one year old!

This post is overdue but I wanted to at least finish of his first year summary on this blog. For Ari’s actual birthday, we just took him to the park and he played and crawled around the playground until we could tell he needed a nap. Our original plan was to take him to the aquarium but we figured he’d have fun either way. We (Russ and I) also got ice cream (and shared a little bit with Ari). What I learned from Ari’s birthday celebration was that–and I’m not trying to sound selfish at all but–the child’s first birthday is just as much about the parents as it is about the kid. I mean, I love Ari to pieces but I carried that baby for nine months in my belly, pushed that 9 lb sucker out, and breastfed him for almost 11 months. Not to mention all the late nights and night feedings and crying and breakdowns that happened this past year. So yes, Russ and I also celebrated ourselves with some ice cream on Ari’s birthday because we did it. We made it to a year as parents!
