Vintage Maternity at 28 Weeks

Shortly after my I announced my pregnancy I got a message from a friend on Twitter, offering me a bunch of vintage maternity clothes that she no longer had a use for. It was one of the nicest gifts I have ever received–a huge box of gorgeous vintage maternity tops, dresses, and skirts from the […]

Lucille’s Birth Story

I thought I should write this down soon, as bits and pieces of it are already starting to slip from my mind. It really does feel like an eternity ago. Saturday April 3oth was my due date. All weekend I had been having contractions on and off and at varying degrees of intensity. Monday the […]

Due Date – An Update

Well it has come and gone. A day I never thought would arrive; the due date. I have been counting down the days to April 30th for the past 40 weeks–280 days. I knew there was a good chance that baby would not arrive before that day, and that the odds of her arriving on […]

Week 39

This is the last time you will see this dress, I promise! I’m also hoping this is the last time you see a pregnancy photo, but that I can’t promise. Not many updates on the baby front. I have had more and more contractions each day, but they are still quite sporadic. I also notice […]

Baby Doll Bath

I want to say a big thank you to all you before I begin today’s post….just in case a baby comes and I forget later! I really feel so lucky to have so many amazing readers, this pregnancy has been real proof of that. Everyone’s kind words, advice, and personal stories have really made the […]

Baby Watch!

Today I am 39 weeks pregnant. I guess you could say that the baby watch is on. It is really weird to think that 9 months has passed and any day now I could be holding this little baby in my arms and responsible for her little precious life. I obviously want her out for […]

Week 38

Really now, I can’t get much bigger. I am ready little lady, please make your appearance very soon. Mama is tired of not being able to roll over in bed, eat clam chowder, have a margarita when the mood strikes, lift big boxes, and bumping the door into you every time I try to close […]

Week 37

Well we are completely moved out of the old apartment. It has been a wild and crazy week, and I am so thankful for all the help we received from both of our families. I have been working on unpacking for a few days now, but with this big massive belly it is a bit […]

Week 36

Our lives are mostly packed up. Going through all my stuff and getting rid of things along the way makes me really anxious to go to estate sales. It has been ages since we have gone and I am feeling the bug. I wonder how it will be with a tiny baby in tow. I […]

Baby Cedar + Baby Russ

Last night after a long day of packing and getting things ready to move I lay down on the couch and began flipping through The Baby Book (which by the way if you haven’t seen it is excellent). After I put the book down Russ picked it up and pointed at the third baby and […]
