Mae Turns One!
Just before dawn, after twelve hours of unyielding labor, my water broke. Within moments I was overcome by a force so powerful it took my breath away, I laid down on the bed and looked out the window to see the sunlight peaking through the blinds. For a mom...

Two came, too fast.
It seems like only yesterday I found out I was pregnant with you, and then just like finding your soulmate you were here with me.. just as you were always meant to be. The past year is impossible to wrap up in a few words because both of you have grown into...

A little more about Mae
I have been terrible about blogging for the past several months in part because I've been crazy busy with three munchkins running around. Jon and I are now outnumbered two-to-one if you count Dahlia in the mix, so it's been a steep learning curve to grapple...

Four hundred and twenty months old
Today is my 35th birthday.. I remember growing up seeing the commercials for the show "thirty-something" and thinking dang that was for OLD people. Fair enough, now it seems I am one of those old  people. The married lady with three kids, driving a minivan,...

Mae's Home Birth Story
It's been five days since Mae was born and after some time to heal, reflect, and sleep (a little), I'm feeling like I might be able to write a semi-coherent birth story. Many people have expressed interest in knowing more of the details of our home birth st...

Sixteen Months
Perhaps not the greatest day for their photo, better luck next time.  Every month I sit here at my computer and try to think about the past month with the girls. It's harder than you think to reflect and some how manage to find the words to articulate what ...

We've all made it to month Fifteen... Amazingly.
It seemed like this month started off with a bang, a relaxing long weekend beach babymoon to Rocky Point with Jonathan. We went, we enjoyed, we slept, we played by the sun, we slept some more, and we fed only ourselves for four glorious days. On Sunday, fee...

And the days keep coming, Fourteen Months
Um, guys what happened to September? HOW CAN IT POSSIBLY BE OCTOBER? I'd say we're reveling in the the crisp morning air and the sounds and colors of fall, but we're not ... we're just barely starting to swim out from under our puddles of triple digit induc...

Thirteen crazy months old
It's a short post this month! I have to be honest I haven't really thought a lot about the post this month... It's been busy, I'm pregnant, and tired and the girls have been insanely active all month! They've been eating like truck drivers, and sprouting te...

And just like that, they're a year old
I could write an entire post about what it's been like to be a mother for a year, but I'm not going to. Instead I am going to say: this year has been the most momentous year of my life, and I am not the same person I was 365 days ago. I will never be the sa...
