Dear Jack – Your 1st Birthday!
Dear Jack, I can’t believe it’s already been a year since we first laid eyes on you. Sometimes it feels like it’s only been just a few eye blinks, and other times, it feels like I’ve known you my entire life. I’m watching you walk around the living room, eating a granola bar, thinking, how...

Baby Jack is now two months old… TWO MONTHS?!? When did that happen? It must have just passed by during all of the feedings, crying, fussing, feedings, changing diapers, lots of poop, burping, finding the pacifiers, feedings, crying, fussing, Major’s 7th birthday, Major’s baseball games, practices, baby snorting (yes, snorting), SMILING (!!!!), baby wiggling, more...

Baby Journal | Week 1: Baby Jack is here & My Labor Story
I’m in a lot of pain. Like, a LOT. From no sleep to my cracked, dry and bleeding breasts, to my stitched up lady-parts, to my back spasms to my stomach cramps, it’s safe to say that the past few days have seen a constant battle between me and my body. But you know what?...
