Guest Post: November the 5th

For the first time ever, I’m posting something I haven’t written myself!  A friend of mine recently saw to completion one of the most heartbreakingly joyful years of her life… and when I read what she wrote about it, I knew it needed to be shared as much as possible. So, if you are friends …

holy moly!

48 hours from right now I should be holding a baby!  CRAZY!!! And thus ends what will probably be my shortest post ever. 🙂

this time, this day, next week…

We will have a baby! 🙂 So happy to know that this time next Friday we should be holding our precious 3rd miracle in our arms.  I’m soooo ready to meet the little person! Unless, of course, he/she would like to be met before next Friday… I wouldn’t be opposed to that. 🙂

my prediction is…

Well, ultimately, I don’t know.  But, if I had to predict when sweet baby number 3 will arrive, I’d say:  early. Reasoning: My first two children were late/on time.  Rachel was a week late, and even with my water breaking on its own, I needed an induction to get her out.  She just was comfy …

unproductive productivity

Last week I was very productive, and yet also extremely unproductive.  This whole pregnancy nesting syndrome has hit full force.  I’m getting some random things accomplished (like oiling my wood cabinets with orange oil), and yet other basic things that I never let fall to the wayside (making the beds) have been a struggle to …

pregnancy & homeschooling

August started out with a bang for us and homeschooling.  Although we are just in the preschool phase of things, I was joyfully planning crafts and activities to coordinate with books we were reading to my hearts content. Then, the second half the the second trimester hit, along with preparations for Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  …

17 weeks

Today is my “change day”.  That’s what I refer to as the day when you switch from being one week pregnant to the next.  So, today, I’m 17 weeks pregnant.  My due date is 23 weeks away! Anyways, I’m not going to post about every week of pregnancy.  Not that I have anything against it.  …

makes it all a little better when…

I still feel completely miserable.  Head hurting?  Check.  Annoyingly nasty cough?  Check.  Eardrum throbbing?   Check.  HOWEVER… as I was taking a moment to relax (yes, I have been somewhat productive regardless of the condition of my poor, painful head!), it was all made a tiny bit better when I felt the tiny baby in my …

shopping, tired, & hungry

We went to a home improvement store today.  Matt’s off, and this weekend’s “projects” revolve around finishing/working on Eli’s room conversion from baby nursery to big boy room.  This weekend, the goal is to do a little painting, and perhaps start on a toy box/chest.  We looked at buying them, but realized that for the cost …

The “How to Deal with a Pregnant Lady” Handbook; Chapter Three: “Did you Smell That?”

One day, a few weeks ago, my husband made our typical Saturday morning breakfast of pancakes, bacon, eggs, hash browns… the whole deal.  YUM.  I love big family breakfasts… Everything was good until later in the day.  We had gone out to run errands, and returned.  I walked into the laundry room, took a deep …
