We had our San Francisco baby shower over the weekend and one of the games our hostesses organized was "Guess the Baby Name". Those who follow this blog, and who toured our nursery, saw a big hint which is that the name starts with the letter "M". We had some great guesses but the one… Continue reading Week 34: M is For… Michigan?
I'm literally and figuratively "rolling with the punches" these days. Baby B is kicking more aggressively than ever and while it doesn't hurt, it's a bit more uncomfortable than the adorable flutters and taps from a month ago. I like to imagine Baby in his own swimming pool doing laps, practicing his flip turns, and… Continue reading Week 31: Rolling with the Punches

We got to see the baby's fingers, toes, thumping heart, spine, brain, lungs, ears, mouth, nose, you name it! (We just looked away when they were zooming in to… Continue reading Week 19: Baby B Would Like to Facetime…
I'm 18 weeks pregnant which unofficially represents the "I hate pants" phase. They dig into my expanding belly and make sitting, running and even standing uncomfortable. I've been getting creative this week with hair ties to extend the waistbands or just letting the top button free. But it's officially time for summer dresses and those… Continue reading Week 18: Goodbye, Pants
As of yesterday I'm 17 weeks pregnant which means Baby B is just about 4 months along and the size of a pomegranate. Wait... I'm 4 months pregnant?! No way. I have a hard time believing that! It feels like yesterday that we found out about Baby B on that Easter Sunday/April Fools Day. Time… Continue reading Week 17: The Honeymoon Period
