Small Beginnings

Well, I had time to get a few pictures off of the camera today. There's one Chris took of my belly on the 1st - just starting to show!!! Chris' dad arrived today to visit us for the weekend (drove ... View Post about Small Beginnings

On Tuesday night, our amazing and funny baby-dog was hit by a car and on Wednesday, he left us, missing him forever. Wonderful Auntie Maliko wrote a eulogy for him, as only she could, and because, ... View Post about To Puck

New Doctor

I had a great appointment this morning with Margi, a certified nurse midwife in Rhinebeck. She's very friendly and personable, and made me feel comfortable from the moment she walked in the room - ... View Post about New Doctor

Snow Day

It's been snowing here since late last night, and I got a snow day. Poor Chris still had to drive to school in the wee hours of this morning - there's no rest for the weary in his industry, even with ... View Post about Snow Day

Wedding Cameras

We have a date! Estimated due date = August 24th. I had my first ultrasound today and got to see the tiny peanut of a baby, heart beat and all. The tech said that I'm exactly 8 weeks, and the ... View Post about Due Date

  • Three in a sleeping bag 😍😍😍 I got spontaneous last night and took the girls for a winter camping trip (without Chris because I was feeling brave). It's the first time we've gone tent camping since right after Addie was born and it made me so happy...even if it was 43 degrees when we woke up. Brrrr. 🏕❄
  • I have to post one more time because I'm feeling so nostalgic on Zara's birthday. #sixyearsago Her birth was so incredible. Speedy (just three hours of labor!), but perfect and, of course, we could not have asked for a better little person to join our family. She has that second picture in her room - says it's her favorite - and I have the last one on my night stand. ❤️ and missing my tribe right now, but so greatful for that magical day.
  • Our bumblebee is 6! 
Oh how time flies.  It seems like only yesterday we were welcoming our second daughter into our family, and yet it feels like a lifetime ago.  At 6, Zara is still an incredible love bug, overflowing with empathy for others and a knack for filling a room with joy and silliness. She's finishing kindergarten this year, but is racing to keep up with her older sister. Before we met her, we called her Peach, and she is just that.
  • We clean up ok. 😊 #selfie at Chris' BFF since middle school's wedding.  Why don't we go to more parties with music and dancing?  It's super fun.
  • This time of year is my favorite.  Things actually slow down and get quiet in the business and it gives me a lot more room to breathe and reflect.  On Thursday, I had maybe one of the best days I have had all year.  I worked just a small bit, then played hooky with the girls.  We rode the bus down town, went to the library and had a picnic lunch at a playground.  It was so perfect...a day like I used to have before the business blew up. ❤️ In 2019, I want to figure out how to have more days like these, and be more present in the moment without worrying about all the work that's not getting done. #lifegoals #newyear #whpresolutions2019
