Good Night, Sweet One
Twisted awkwardly so my burgeoning belly is supported and I'm not strangled by your body draping across me, I dismiss the throbbing discomfort as you snuggle yet closer. You sigh as you settle your head on my shoulder, which I'm sure can't be completely com...

Memory & Momentum

A Year of Growth
We were reflecting earlier that two years ago this month we were counting down to our wedding....21 days. Now we are rocking our daughter to sleep, jockeying for smiles, and clocking feedings. Crazy what can happen in two years. What's even more crazy is wh...
