Round 2! Slowing down a bit, but still going strong. <3 Second trimester is usually when things need to be modified for pregnancy, and I’ve found that with a few simple changes, I’ve been able to keep up my activity levels, teaching and workouts. I’m thankful that I still feel energized (for now) as I’m […]

When did your kid drop their nap?


Oh friends. Let us all get out our tiny violins, and join in a sad, melancholy tune:  I think we’ve reached the end of the napping era. (Sigh. The best. So glad I’ve been savoring every second.) I’ve alluded to this on the blog, but our sleep schedule has been off for a while. Liv […]

Weeks 25-27


*All of my second pregnancy updates can be found on the Family tag above, and are also categorized by trimester <3 Bumpin’ along! 27 weeks: Random thoughts/ things I noticed: -I continue to be obsessed with baby kicks. I just walk around rubbing my belly all day, and savoring the movements. It’s funny because I […]

Registry must-haves

Baby registry must-haves and everything we're glad we saved for baby #2!

(the things we registered for and got a ton of use, and also stood the text of time!) One of the fun yet intimidating aspects of my first pregnancy was trying to figure out our baby registry and what we needed to prepare for Liv’s arrival. Of course, all a baby really needs is to be […]

  Livi: “I’m going to be a doctor.” Me: “What kind of doctor would you like to be?” Livi: “A brain doctor. Then I’m going to give you a shot.”    “I would NEVER, ever, in the whole wide world. I would never kiss a frog!”   “Mom, listen to me. Wait, listen. I said […]

21 week belly shot: Random thoughts/things I noticed: It’s been fun to go back and see how things have changed from this pregnancy to my previous one. I rarely post bare belly pics on here -and I totally get it if you think pregnancy bellies are weird haha- and took these this past week. Turns […]

Getting kids involved in the kitchen

This post is sponsored through my partnership with Bitsy’s Brainfood.  While we certainly go through our picky phases over here, we are very thankful that Liv enjoys a variety of foods and is usually up to try something new. Since she was little, we’ve tried to expose her to as much variety as possible, and […]

19 week belly shot: Random thoughts and things I noticed:  -My veins are like whooooaaaa, especially when I’m working out. Remember those new stretch marks I discovered? They were VEINS and turns out it was a temporary thing. Still using the Supple Skin Oil and a new one, which I’m loving, this Mama Mio belly […]

GIRL! (We had pink macarons to celebrate) Looks like from the poll, many of you had a feeling. 59% guessed correctly! For our first genetic ultrasound test, the tech sound pretty sure that it was a girl, but after our last time (you know when they told us Liv was a boy haha), we wanted […]

Family: Meet the Midwives

This past weekend, we had the opportunity to tour the hospital where the baby will be born, and also attend a Q&A session with the midwifery group that we’ve been seeing. The group is very similar to our care in Tucson while I was pregnant with Liv. There are multiple midwives in the practice, and […]
