  • Ella: Seven Months

    Ella: Seven Months

    It’s the third of the month, so that means it’s time for an Ella update! Ella at seven months: Weight: I seriously think this kid is nearly 20 pounds – she is packing on the weight and I love it. Carrying her is more and more of a workout every day! Length: No clue, but she was 27 inches at the doctor last month! Still blue eyed with light brown hair. Her eyes and smile are definitely just like her daddy’s. Girlfriend is in all 9 and 12 month clothes, and I don’t know that the 9 month ones will last…

    Ella: Six Months

    Ella: Six Months

    And just like that, our little miss Ella is six months old. Half a year. Crazy. Ella at six months: Weight: We have her six month visit on Friday, so we’ll know for sure then, but I know she’s at minimum 15 pounds 6 ounces – that’s what she was at her last sick visit (more about that in a bit) Length: We’ll find out on Friday! Big baby blue and light brown hair. The older she gets, the more I see in Chris’ features in her face – her eyes are all his. Abbie has mine (I get all squinty when…

    When Motherhood is Hard

    When Motherhood is Hard

    I so often like to write as if everything is sunshine and rainbows. Look at me, being crazy busy and making it all work! Look at me – if I’m doing it, you can too! I like my writing to be a source of positivity and inspiration. I am always trying to find the positive spin on everything I’m going through. But the truth? The truth is that I’ve been having a hard time. Things have just been hard lately. I knew having a second baby would change things but had no idea just how much. We’re so much busier.…

    Ella: Three Months

    Ella: Three Months

    Well, here we are at Ella’s three month update! This is one of my favorite ages – she’s getting so much more interactive and really giving us lots of smiles and giggles. I’ve got one week of maternity leave left and I’m going to soak in all her sweetness this week. Here’s an Ella update! Ella at three months: Weight – no doctor’s appointment this month, but I did the old step on the scale without her and then with her trick, and I think she’s about 12 ½ pounds. No idea on length – we’ll know next month! Eyes…

    Stitch Fix January 2017, Round Two

    Stitch Fix January 2017, Round Two

    I’ve got another Stitch Fix review for you guys today, but it’s not my usual glowing review. This fix was only the second one where I sent everything back, and the first one that I was truly disappointed in. The postpartum period is a strange one. I’m not quite feeling like myself again yet, but I want to. I still have a little bit of weight hanging around my middle, which isn’t where I typically carry my weight (I usually carry it below or above that). Very little in my closet makes me happy, and so many of my shirts…
