childbirth class

Ten couples sit in a semi-circle in the basement room of the hospital.  We are there to learn about the natural process of childbirth. Sitting there, David and I cannot stop laughing at the humor of this setting. We are all educated adults and yet this natural human act of giving birth to a child […]

he moves!

It has happened.  The little dude inside the bump is not only moving about, but recently I have been able to detect him! While sitting with a student I tutor, I started to notice what felt like little popping bubble sensations.  Thinking, “What is this weird tummy stuff?” it dawned on me that it was […]

second trimester

Today officially marks the start of my second trimester!  It is so hard to believe that it is already “phase II” of my first pregnancy. My various baby apps on my phone all alerted me to the fact that the expected day of delivery is 189 days away. The last time I had a daily […]

pinterest & my home

One year is approaching….on April 27, 2013 it will be one year since David and I moved into our first home. Yes, April is still far away as we freeze in the chilly air of February, but it is not THAT far away. The best decision I ever made was marrying my best friend.  The […]
