Connor, Two Month Newborn Update

I’m sharing a two month update for Connor partially for myself and for others who might have a baby younger and wondering, what’s next? Maybe you have a baby the same age and curious if you’re getting more sleep than I am! While every child is different and there is no normal, I love being able […]

Boston Fitness Studios with Childcare and Classes for Moms & Babies

Finding childcare in Boston at a gym has gotten so much easier since I had Tommy. No longer are moms only able to workout at the big gyms but plenty of fitness studios also offer babysitting at select times. I wrote a post 2 years ago on this topic and realized it needed a serious […]

How much weight I have to lose isn’t weighing me down

It’s funny how things change in ways you never expected. I fully expected to be overwhelmed with two children but I’m shocked to feel rather stress free. Everything is a phase, I know that now. While both kids may be crying at times, Connor won’t remember and Tommy likely won’t either. One way I usually […]

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, […]

Just a Little 41 Week Update…

So, we are at the hospital. I elected to get induced at 41 weeks because Tommy was so large and I didn’t want to risk a larger baby and not be able to deliver vaginally. The last time I was induced with Tommy it went very fast. I was given one dose of cytotec and […]

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 […]
