I was just reading last week’s post where I was still waiting for baby. It’s crazy that little J is here and already 6 days old!
Most of the week went really smoothly, although we hit a little rough patch the last two days with lots of evening fussiness. I’m going to try eliminating dairy [...]

Thanks for your sweet comments and congratulations! We’re in awe of our sweet girl.
It’s been four years since we did the newborn thing and I was a little nervous about entering the sleep deprived state again. But I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable the first four days have been.
I’m only sleeping a [...]

Our sweet Julia arrived on Monday, July 28th at 6:25pm!
Everything went smoothly! We came home this morning and are settling in as a family of four. More details soon!

Good morning! (And nope- no baby yet.)
Instead, I’m sharing a post I wrote for my monthly newsletter. I don’t usually share those articles here, but I received a lot of emails and feedback and thought some of you may benefit from this discussion as well.

Thanks for your support and suggestions on the baby wait. It’s not easy!
After a few false alarms this week with cramping and mild contractions, I’m prepared to go on time or late and am going to stop holding my breath and reading into every little symptom!
My energy is definitely lower this week, partly [...]

Today marks 39 weeks! Since my daughter was born at 38 and a half, this is officially the longest I’ve ever been pregnant.
To be honest, I was definitely hoping for a 38.5 week baby again but this little one seems pretty comfy in there. I didn’t get to the “waiting” stage at all [...]

About two weeks ago, I shared 4 Reasons to Eat Fermented Foods and got a lot of great feedback from you all. It’s one of those nutrition pieces that our great-grandparents got right without even realizing it… like eating dandelion greens, making homemade bone broth, eating animals and vegetables they raised themselves… anyway.

As I slow down these last few weeks, I am appreciating and remembering the importance of rest. I wrote this two years ago and may be recycling a few oldies but goodies these next few weeks depending when the baby comes and how much time I have to blog.
How often do you rest?

How’s your weekend going?
We’ve been busy with house projects… more baby organizing (thought I was done but there is always more!), some yard work (not me), sourdough bread making, playground and pool time. It’s really nice to have nothing on the calendar these days! Although I’m trying not to let my mind wonder to [...]

Hey, it’s Friday!
At the risk of overdoing the baby posts, I’m indulging those of you who asked for nursery pictures.
I need to preface this by saying I have no interior decorating skills whatsoever. Our goal was a simple, gender neutral nursery and we used the quilt I made for L as the color [...]
