BBQ and Poo   Do you ever feel like you are spinning your wheels?  Like you put a ton of effort into something  and then the universe is like… nope, not today. That is literally me every day these days.  I try not to feel frustrated or “mad”but sometimes I just wonder, is it me? Yesterday, … Continued

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

Time Warp   Josh comes home today.  We will head to the airport in the new minivan around 5 tonight.  He has been gone for exactly 4 weeks to the day. He returned to his ship when Georgia was 12 days old.  And now she is almost 6 weeks old.  I can’t wait for him to see … Continued

Pee Party   Georgia is 5 weeks old today.   Logan, my oldest, has been very interested in helping with his baby sister.  For the past week or so, he has helped me get her dressed for the day and ready for bed at night.  I’ve taught him how to change her diapers and get on … Continued

Baby Georgia is here   I am sitting on my bed.  3.5 day old Baby Georgia is asleep in her bassinet next to me. I just ate what I am calling “first breakfast” and am drinking a giant bottle of water.  I’m still using the hospital water bottle. I like the bendy straw so decided … Continued

Rocky Song   Welp, I am still pregnant.  Baby girl is going on 5 days late so perhaps she is signaling that she is on her own time agenda. Although I don’t have a baby announcement yet, I do have great news.   Because I am scheduled to be induced Monday night if she doesn’t arrive … Continued

Round and round   Today is baby girl’s official due date.  Despite all of the pre-labor symptoms going down for the last week, she is content to stay in a little longer. Last week I progressively felt worse.  I thought this might be a sign that labor was coming, but…. nope. Saturday I woke up … Continued

another confession   I am sitting on the couch with Bonny drinking my labor kickstart tea.  I drank some last night, but I guess I need more. Over the course of this journal, I’ve told you everything under the sun.   I’ve been so grateful for the outlet to share my days and feel so touched … Continued

Snakes on a plane   Had a few “big contractions” last night that woke me up.  I put my watch on to see if it would start happening regularly, but then went back to sleep.   My body is pretty exhausted these days which makes it slightly easier to just resign myself to waiting.  No active … Continued

Where are you toes?   I think my body loves to “pretend” to be in labor.  I basically have all the signs of labor without the “active” labor part.  That’s ok… I know it is part of the process of getting ready.  Maybe it will make baby girl’s actual arrival a little easier….or maybe just … Continued

maybe…maybe…nope   I kind of thought last night might be baby go time… lots of contractions…achy deep pain…trouble sleeping…but nope…no active labor. I’m actually currently still having them.  But baby girl must be content on the inside. It’s like I am teetering on the edge and my body is like…maybe….maybe…maybe….nah let’s wait. Maybe instinctively I am … Continued

Who is yacking?   I am currently sitting on a yoga ball at my desk.  It’s 5:17am and much earlier than I wanted to wake up.  Exactly zero dogs or kids threw up or did anything weird while Josh was home.  So seems kind of funny to me at 430 this morning Daisy started throwing up….everywhere. … Continued

430am departure   It’s 5:45 am.  Josh left about an hour ago to start his cross country drive to Virginia.  And just like that…another page turns. Josh will drive his truck east over the next 4 days and then will fly back home to us the minute I go into labor.   If you are thinking … Continued

False labor   Josh has been home for 8 full days.  Honestly the adjustment has been far easier than I expected.  It feels amazing to have him around.  He helps with the boys, does projects around the house and rubs my very pregnant back.  I can finally talk to him about my day…it’s amazing. Monday … Continued

Baby on the mountain   The boys are camping.  I came home to sleep in my bed with all my pillows.   I didn’t tap out on camping, this was the plan.   I went with them for the day to hike and hang out by the campfire.   We hiked about a mile…1/2 in and 1/2 out… … Continued
