10 Things I Did Not Expect To Happen With Baby #2

I had a lot of anxiety before giving birth to Connor. I expected a rough recovery, painful nursing sessions and the baby blues. I however did not expect these 10 things to happen… #1. A long labor. Every one told me the second child comes FAST. People warned me about staying on Cape Cod until […]

Connor’s Birth Story

Connor was born Tuesday morning at 5 am on July 17th, 2018. I had a feeling he wasn’t going to come early and I was right. I elected to be induced at 41 weeks because of how large his brother Tommy was at birth. Tommy was 10 days late and while I was induced with him, […]

When you have the same sex child for number two, you do not get another shower or a sprinkle. You do however get the chance to buy the things yourself that you wish you had registered for the first time. For me, this meant placing a focus on convenience and sleep. Before Tommy, we were […]

Pregnancy Update: Week 39 | Baby #2

Happy early 4th of July! I took off last week to spend some quality time with Tommy and we 100% enjoyed it. Now that Dad has joined us in Cape Cod, I am of course the second choice but I am OK with that because it meant I got to sleep in today. I wanted […]

My Ultimate Baby Registry Guide 2018

Registering for your first baby is overwhelming. I kept asking people for suggestions but tried to be a minimalist, and ended up with a few hits but ultimately, I returned a few things and then bought things with my store credit as I learned what kind of baby Tommy was and what I truly needed. This was […]

Tommy Update | This is Two

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Tommy update and I’ve been getting a ton of questions so I thought I’d share a little update on the things you guys are interested in. Huge disclaimer: I am a first time mom. I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m just doing the best I can. This […]

How My Obsession With Fitness Has Evolved Since Becoming a Mom

Today’s post is sponsored by Zappos. At 29 weeks pregnant with Tommy, I ran a half marathon in San Francisco. Now at 29 weeks again, I don’t know how I did it. I know why, but I don’t know how my body was able to do it. They say you can continue doing whatever you’ve been doing […]

Pregnancy Update: 24 Weeks

Panic has begun to sink in at 24 weeks pregnant. My last update was a month ago at 20 weeks and while I still feel like not much has changed, a lot has. Baby Baby is the size of an eggplant which feels larger than I am. I guess it depends what kind of eggplant […]

Gender Reveal Baby #2…

While some people choose to wait 10 months to find out the sex of their baby, I’ve always known that I am too impatient to be one of them. Luckily, Nick is too. I wanted to be able to plan when it came to Tommy. I also can’t stand surprises unless I know they are […]
