I've celebrated Mother's Day for many years, but this year was my first as an actual Mum. It was a tiring day, but still filled with many blessings, mostly in the form of a husband and son. The day began nice and early when Dom decided he was up and at 'em at 5:30 a.m. … Continue reading My First Mother’s Day
Plethora of Bandaids
Little man has a problem. When he has an itch, he itches it. I know. Can you believe it? Unfortunately it seems his itch is always in the same spot: above his right eyebrow. We finally started putting on bandages. Last night he went to bed with two on. Tonight he has three. Life's rough … Continue reading Plethora of Bandaids
The Babies In The Pool Go Kick, Kick, Kick
Taanya reminded me that it had been a while since I posted anything. I am TERRIBLY sorry. Please forgive me. Here is a video in an attempt to appease you. This is from Good Friday when Nathan had time off for spring break and Dustin had the day off as well so the dads took … Continue reading The Babies In The Pool Go Kick, Kick, Kick
Conference Weekend Cabin Contentment
We have officially taken our first trip with Dominic. At the wise age of 4 and a half months, he has now slept somewhere other than the hospital or his home. We spent a night at my parent's cabin in Midway with some family. That night was a bit of a disaster. Little man went … Continue reading Conference Weekend Cabin Contentment

Okay, so many of the things that he does each day are firsts. And it's the best, as his mom, to experience those with him. When … Continue reading A Couple of Firsts
The Best Medicine
Sun and “Warmth”
Winter. You've been long, cold and snowstormy this year. So snowstormy. On Friday, as I ran some errands on my lunch break, I opened the sun roof. After several lengthy months of no use, it opened like a charm. The springish air came into the car. If only I knew this weather would last, living … Continue reading Sun and “Warmth”
Welcome to the decade of your 30s, husband of mine.
Nathan hit the big three-oh milestone and we celebrated by being sick together. Thankfully we are recovering and felt well enough to go out to dinner. This dinner was so fancy, I felt out of place wearing a slightly bulky sweater and still trotting around in maternity pants (they don’t quite fit but neither do … Continue reading Welcome to the decade of your 30s, husband of mine.
I wish I could hit pause on Sunday afternoons. It's quiet, we're cozy on the couch while it's snowing outside, Nathan's home and Dom falls asleep in my arms. How can you not love his little arm wrapped around you?
I know that these problems are fleeting, but for posterity, I'm going to list them here so I can always remember how much fun life is sometimes: We have problems with my car, a hose broken, it's making noises, not sure what it is, but so excited to take it in and find out. Dom … Continue reading It’s Pouring
