Here we go again

12 Month Check Up…a month late

by katherine on August 28, 2013

My baby just had her 12-month well check! Last week, but whatever, life is busy yo. And yes, she did turn one over a month ago. For the record, I had her appointment scheduled for just a few days after her first birthday but they cancelled it…we found out when we got there to check […]

Second kids do almost everything faster.

by katherine on April 25, 2013

Sometimes I feel like these last nine months have been a whirlwind. Time is going by so fast. I looked down at my sleeping baby last night and thought how un-baby-like she seemed to me all of a sudden. I started thinking about it and it seems like she is doing everything before Rylee was […]

I always thought there’d be three.

by katherine on February 25, 2013

It was something we talked about long before their was ever an engagement ring on my finger…Three kids. Now fast forward about ten years, a giant mortgage and two kids later…a lot has happened in the last ten years…especially the last 5. Three kids is no longer in the cards for us. For a variety […]

Throwing me for a loop.

by katherine on November 9, 2012

This parenting gig is funny. Just when you feel like you’re hitting your groove, something comes up and you’re completely thrown off guard. Case in point? Ladies and Gentlemen? We have a thumbsucker. Rylee was never a thumbsucker. Never even took a pacifier. Never. Not even once. Don’t get me wrong, she figured out other […]

Boobs = NBD

by katherine on August 15, 2012

Just a week before Reese was born, I sent out a plea for help to the interwebs. How should I explain breastfeeding to Rylee!? I was freaking out. Turns out? You guys are way smarter than me. But, of course I knew that already, hence me asking you for your advice! I opted not to […]

I’m Fine.

by katherine on August 9, 2012

There’s this little fact that when someone asks “how are you doing” that most times, they really don’t actually care. These days, I’m getting that question a lot. My standard answer? I’m fine. And while I’m sure that annoys some of the askers, I’m pretty sure no one wants to hear… That I’m running on […]

Two Weeks and One Day

by katherine on August 3, 2012

Hard to believe it’s already been over two weeks since we’ve become a family if four. We’ve all settled in nicely. Long stints of sleep are still hard to come by but there’s something about this girl that makes it all worth it. Oh and the midday naps I take don’t hurt either. Reese is […]

The things so easily forgotten…

by katherine on July 28, 2012

…The first post-partum poop. …The squeaky sleep. …The burning nipples. …How long 45 minute feeding sessions seem at 2 AM. …How quickly the lack of sleep can wear on you. …The sheer amount of garbage produced by something so tiny. …the laundry…oh the laundry. …Boulder boobs. {AKA: engorgement} {AKA: ouchie} …How such tiny fingers wrapped […]

Life. Lately.

by katherine on July 25, 2012

I’m sitting here with the sounds of Sid the Science Kid and the steady drone of the baby swing in the background. I’ve got a snuggly 4 year old keeping my left side warm. A towel that’s been wrapped in my hair for about an hour too long. And a heart that is overflowing. These […]

40 Week Re-Cap

by katherine on July 17, 2012

Well…mostly 40 weeks, anyway. I thought it’d be fun to put all the belly pics together to see the progress of Baby Sister. And even more fun…the most recent 39 week belly pic…I’m wearing the same shirt I wore in my 8 week shot. That’s a whole lotta stretch, folks! Any time now, Baby Sister! […]
