It has taken forever for me to get this finished, but here it is, Landon’s birth story. It’s not easy to feel like there is no end to a pregnancy, but finally at 40 weeks and 3 days, we got to meet our little man. And oh what a blessing he is!
Well, hopefully this will be the final blog post of this pregnancy, otherwise I may go insane. This little boy has been baking for an entire 40 weeks. That is 2 more weeks longer than I was pregnant with Leilani and thankfully I am still able to feel my hands and see my ankles, which were […]
Well there I am – 39 weeks pregnant (aka Bitchy). Don’t let my smile fool you. I’m so crabby at this point. This is the most pregnant I have ever been since I went into labor at 38 weeks with Leilani. That pregnancy was terrible towards the end with swelling, a pinched nerve, having to sleep […]
Today I will celebrate Leilani for the person she is and will become someday. And if you’ve met her, you know she is one spunky adorable little girl that lights up a room with her smile and her laughter. I will also celebrate the people in our lives that have accepted her and are teaching their children and families the love and compassion and acceptance of others. Those people are true advocates for Leilani just as much as we try to be! Thank you 🙂 and Happy World Down Syndrome Day! Spread the word!
This is a favorite in our house. Unfortunately not mine, but my husband LOVES this pie and apparently, so does my child. I do love how easy it is to make and that I don’t have to actually bake it.
Another insane week – but guess what? It’s St. Patrick’s Day week which can only mean one thing – Corned Beef and Cabbage. YES! I’m so excited and it is definitely on the menu plan for this week! I may not go out and get drunk like the rest of this city, but I do […]
I swear I had a menu plan for last week but I totally forgot to post it. Sometimes I feel like I don’t know whether I’m coming or going and I’m just going to blame it all on the baby 🙂 My parents were in town this past weekend and I had to work so […]
I fell asleep on the couch last night, which is a usual occurrence these days. I sleep for about an hour, get uncomfortable and then slowly get up, brush my teeth, wash my face and climb into bed. An hour or two of good, uninterrupted sleep goes a long ways it seems. This Wednesday I […]
This week starts with Valentine’s Day! I happen to love Valentine’s Day and I’m super excited for when the kiddos are old enough to get into making Valentine’s and doing fun crafts with them. I’m sure I’ll eat my words some day, but for now – that’s how I feel. Last year we started a […]
So I’m going to start by saying that this is probably more of a gift guide for Mom’s – because I know for a fact that half of the things on this list were not attractive to me as a single woman, or a married woman with no kids. Some of them however, would have […]
