Sugar Goose   Georgia has had a series of rough sleeping nights.  Last night she did pretty well and slept from 1230 to 5.  The sleep deprivation is starting to impact my brain function though.  I can’t remember certain words.   I forget things I’ve said to people.  It’s like I’m a tiny bit drunk. Speaking … Continued

Award for breakfast   Last night was the first night in a while I got dishes done and coffee set up before I went to bed.  This morning I woke up to the kitchen not being a mess and coffee only one push away.   YES!  On top of that, I ordered groceries last night, and … Continued

Don’t Worry   Last night Henry wanted to help with Georgia’s bath.  I told him in addition to helping me, he could be the bath DJ…he loves music. So he comes in a few minutes later with the phone and starts playing a version of the “Don’t worry be happy” song.  What a nice choice … Continued

Sugar lies   I know I am probably jinxing it, but Georgia has started sleeping in much larger chunks.  The past few nights she slept from 1130pm until about 430am.  I set my alarm for 3 just to check on her…To be honest if you gave me the option to check on her every 20 … Continued

Kick my own butt   I dropped Josh off yesterday at 5am.  We won’t see him again until the first week of September.  It was fun for him to see how much Georgia changed… it will be fun in September too. She had her first real smile last week so his visit home was perfect timing.  She … Continued

Future Arm Bars   I set my alarm to get up early to write.   By early I mean during Georgia’s morning sleep interval.  But she tricked me and was awake when I woke up.  Right now her night feeding routing is approximately 8pm, 11pm, 3am, 6am, 930am….then who knows after that.   Today though, it was … Continued

Fit Me Pregnancy Journal Day 15: Hashtag Unfollow I made the mistake a week or two ago of following some new hashtags and accounts on instagram.  I followed “fit pregnancy” and a handful or accounts of women who seemed like me, trying to exercise and eat well during pregnancy.  Looking for inspiration and shared experience.

Fit Me Pregnancy Journal Day 14: Deployment Trimesters I tried a cup of decaf coffee this morning.  It still tastes terrible. For me, disliking coffee is the most unexpected food aversion of them all. Prior to pregnancy, I was a coffee fanatic. I drank it black and often.  About 2 weeks into my pregnancy it started tasting … Continued

Fit Me Pregnancy Journal Day 11: Poor Chippy I’m 14 weeks today.   Yesterday Henry asked me how many days left until the baby is here.   It was very sweet.  This was shortly after he covered our elf Chippy with shaving cream.  I can’t even imagine why.  He loves Chippy.  I was not a happy camper.

​​​​​I’m drinking homemade bone broth.   If you’ve never had it, you need to try it.  It is amazing.  It makes your lips feel soft because of the fat in the broth.   It’s great for a lot of things.. lubricates joints…reduces inflammation, supports gut health and hormones…etc.  But today I am drinking it for the immune system … Continued

I’m still feeling meh today.  Seems like the congestion has shifted to my chest.  Last night I coughed in my sleep and almost pulled a hip flexor.  How about them apples! Guess those ligaments are extra loose and expanding.   I’m feeling ok though, no need to worry.  I don’t know how to activate my “man … Continued
