Baby Showers: Over the Moon with Gratitude

I’ve been feeling super grateful lately, especially as I’ve celebrated Baby C with not one but two baby showers recently. Truth be told, I was dreading my baby shower. I do not do well as the center of attention in a room full of people where all eyes are on you. That’s one reason BillContinue reading “Baby Showers: Over the Moon with Gratitude”

What I Did (and Wore) in April 2019

Let’s be honest: the last few months have been wrapped up in All Things Baby. Even before I got pregnant, I told myself I wouldn’t let myself get so wrapped up in having a baby and becoming a mom that I’d forget about myself, my hobbies, and my life. Though I haven’t done anything ofContinue reading “What I Did (and Wore) in April 2019”

What I Did (and Wore) in March 2019

Last I wrote, I’d just taken a trip to California. It was great to see my parents in their element and to spend some time in the sunshine, which I desperately craved after an already long winter. And now as I write this it’s like, summer, dudes. Because apparently I can’t keep up with hobbies!Continue reading “What I Did (and Wore) in March 2019”

Goin’ Back to Cali, Cali, Cali

My parents, my grandma, and I have officially mastered the four-day, cross-country vacation. This happened the first time in March 2017 and did a repeat this month — likely my final trip before baby arrives — and I couldn’t have asked for a better visit! In truth, it will likely be a while before IContinue reading “Goin’ Back to Cali, Cali, Cali”

Being Fat and Pregnant

I’ve spent a lifetime hating my body. I was a fat kid who turned into a fat teen who became a fat adult and I live in the U.S., where we are actively taught that being fat is not just unattractive, but unhealthy, worthy of ridicule, deserving of discrimination (even by medical professionals), and something youContinue reading “Being Fat and Pregnant”

Things I Did (and Wore) in February 2019

Thank baby Jesus that February is done and gone. I could deal with the winter if it was just, like, December and January. But that it extends into February? The AUDACITY! I have serious pregnancy brain, too, meaning I can hardly remember what I did in the month. (Can still feel the harsh cold onContinue reading “Things I Did (and Wore) in February 2019”

Getting Ready for Two Babies: A Girl and a Book!

What’s better than one baby? Two! First: a beautiful, wiggly, growing baby girl that Bill and I are so excited to welcome into our lives. My due date is June 19, 2019, meaning there’s just 99 days until we say hello to her. It’s been so much fun preparing for her arrival. Oddly, Bill andContinue reading “Getting Ready for Two Babies: A Girl and a Book!”

Let’s Do This, 2019

2018 was good to me. It is weird to feel like you’re thriving personally while the world is sort of crashing around you. I’m not immune to the terrible things that happen — but in my personal life, I’m happy and things are actually going well. Last year, I vowed to live 2018 with lessContinue reading “Let’s Do This, 2019”
