Homebirth vs. Hospital

Now really, I don’t like to face them off like that, but for the purposes of this post maybe I will. I’ve had a few people ask which I prefer now that I’ve done both.  A few people assume that I preferred the hospital (an assumption I kind of resent) and a few people were …

Life with a new baby

Oh I have so much I want to say, so many blog post ideas.  Here is reality: I don’t get that much time to be able to sit down and actually type.  I have plenty of time to read a hundred different things while I sit and nurse, but if I type it is often …

The start of summer

Even though I still have next week to work, it feels like summer has really begun. If there was any doubt, it was erased last night when M and I saw the first lightening bugs of summer as we sat out on our upstairs porch. This weekend is kind of packed but also kind of …

Garage Sale Season

Traditionally  this has been my best weekend of the year for garage sales.  This weekend was no exception.  There is a neighborhood in the next town over that always has their garage sales the third Saturday of May, so we made sure to hit those up today.  I did OK with some stuff- found some …

Under the weather

It has been a tough week.  Not in a really serious hard-stuff-in-life way thank goodness, but in one of those “is this week over yet?” sort of ways. E is always a little clingy when we get back from a weekend with M’s family.  It seems he was extra clingy earlier this week because he …

Mother’s Day Weekend

We’ve been gone all weekend and just got home tonight.  It was our last trip to see my husband’s family before the baby is born.  Normally Mother’s Day is my weekend and we go see M’s family for Father’s Day; however, Father’s Day I’ll be 36 weeks and in my opinion that is too pregnant …

Nesting

I think I’m nesting.  I’ve been going non-stop today with cleaning (more organizing/purging than actual cleaning) and laundry.  Today isn’t even my normal laundry day. We also ran a lot of errands.  E was pretty good until the last store, than he got antsy.  I was hoping that we could make it to the greenhouse …

Things are coming together

M and I headed to Pittsburgh today for an IKEA trip.  We got a dresser for the nursery.  It will obviously need assembled, but that was the last big thing on the list.  Once it is together I can start putting stuff up on the walls.  I might also start washing and sorting the baby …

Speaking of having a break…

Just got home from meeting with some friends for a Girls’ Night.  These were some of “mommy friends” and it was great to be able to sit and chat without attending to 2 year olds!  I have been able to get out in the evening by myself before for the now defunct knitting group or …

A Fresh Start

I’ve decided it is time for a new blog.  Sometimes a fresh start is what we need.  For me it wasn’t just a new blog, it was hosting it somewhere new too.  I’m hoping this will be a little friendlier feeling than my last blog and it won’t feel like such a chore to write! …
