TO OUR FIRST BORN, MALAKAI

Malakai my boy, you are going to be a BIG-BIG-BIG brother to your little baby brother VERY soon! WOOHOO! From the moment I found I out I was pregnant with your brother, I couldn’t help but feel SO proud knowing without a doubt that you would be an awesome big brother. I have been stealing extra moments with you, where it’s just us, and I have been soaking all that quality time whenever I can. Yes, that’s why I didn’t fight with you when you wanted to snuggle in our… Read More

THOUGHTS ON RAISING BOYS

ARE YOU DISAPPOINTED THAT YOU’RE HAVING ANOTHER BOY? OH NO, SHAME ANOTHER BOY! I HOPE THAT YOU WILL STILL TRY FOR A GIRL NEXT? WHAT DID YOU WANT BABY WISE? ARE YOU HAVING WHAT YOU WERE HOPING FOR?

I used to think to myself : “What are they’re running from?” , AND , “Where are they running too?” When in actual fact, they weren’t going anywhere – but somehow those little guys ran like their lives… Read More

PREGNANCY 2.0

I am officially in my THIRD trimester this week, and I honestly cannot believe it. This pregnancy has flown by, unlike my first – where it felt like I was pregnant forever! I first felt pregnant with Malakai when I was 29 (said in a Schmidty voice) , turning 30, and now I am 34 turning 35 (OMW talk about The Walking Dead) , and let’s just say this pregnancy #2 has been a whole ‘nother ball game on it’s own. Every pregnancy is different from the next, and every… Read More
