Munchkin is the size of a cucumber! 30 weeks ~ 7th month ~ 3rd trimester Weight gain: About 17 pounds. At my 28 week appointment the midwife thought that was fine, at 30 weeks a different midwife scolded me a little. It’s amazing how the difference of opinion regarding weight gain depends on the midwife/doctor. I […]

Parker = 24 + 1


Perhaps this is a little ambitious but I really want to keep going with Parker’s monthly updates. There is still so much that is changing from one month to another I know I will want to look back and remember them. Over the last month Parker has… … celebrated his 2nd birthday with some of […]

Favorite Airplane & Helicopter Toys for Toddlers


I always knew my husband was a geek for anything that flies in the sky. I mean, I couldn’t have been surprised since he did participate in civil air patrol, earn his pilots license, and enlist in the Air National Guard. I didn’t really realize HOW much of a geek he was until Parker came […]

oogiebear Review & Giveaway


One of the hardest things about being a parent is when you child is sick. Especially at a young age, they can’t really communicate what is hurting them.

28 Weeks


Munchkin is the size of a eggplant! 28 weeks ~ 7th month ~ 3rd trimester Weight gain: Definitely catching up from the slow start :/ About 13-15 pounds depending on the day. I can’t say I am doing anything to really keep that number down. I tend to do what my body wants during pregnancy, within reason of […]

A Nautical Birthday Party Theme


While I LOVED the BBQ theme last year, I decided to scale down a bit this year with everything going on. We had an afternoon celebration with light snacks instead of a full meal. I also toned down the decorations a bit and focused on easier projects that would still look nice. It’s been fun […]
