Savoring the Snuggles…

I made some progress on one of my October goals yesterday and packed away my little girl’s 3 month clothes. At 8 months she has finally made the transition to size 2 diapers and size 3-6 month clothes. Truth be told, she could still totally squeeze into 3 mo. outfits but she’s getting a little long for them and we have new clothes just waiting to be worn in the next sizes. Continue reading

A day in the life…

Today’s post is a little different in that it is mostly pictures. The title is also completely accurate but also perhaps a bit misleading in that my days rarely look the same from one day to another.

My Wonderful Son,

confirmation

Usually I would wear heels to try and match my brothers’ heights, but that was not happening at 9 months pregnant…

Last Mother’s Day I was standing up as your uncle’s confirmation sponsor and anxiously counting down the days to your arrival. I wasn’t quite in that end of pregnancy people are afraid to come near you because they think you might give birth on them or something phase, but I was definitely in the final month and feeling it. It was hard for me to get through the day without feeling completely exhausted and even harder for me to imagine what life would be like with you out in the world, helping me celebrate my first official Mother’s Day the next year.
