One Month

This post is about a week overdue, but still worth a share!             So, I blinked and now Rosemary is one month old.  Right now she…   has a healthy appetite sleeps decently at night has outgrown newborn clothes and diapers does not prefer baths enjoys being snuggled and practicing holding…

Our first weeks at home

  When we brought Rosemary home from the hospital, I tried to make an effort to take videos of those first few weeks. To me those brand-new baby days are almost magic. (To be clear, there’s also lots of sleeplessness, poopy diapers, feeling physically icky from having a baby, and just messes everywhere in addition to…

And then there were four.

                              This weekend, our second girl arrived.  Rosemary Grace Gaetz was born on 3.15.14 at 3:22 p.m. She weighed in at 7 lbs, 13 oz and measured 20.5 inches long. She is healthy and lovely. Rosie eats like a horse and sleeps like…

Sitting, waiting, wishing…

  I am 40 weeks and one day pregnant today. I have been trying to be patient and trying to remember that nature will eventually take its course, but I am so ready to get this show on the road! Wish us luck, we’re hoping it happens SOON!  

“I carried a watermelon.”

  Over the past few months I’ve tried to take a weekly baby bump photo. (Some are more thoughtful than others.) I know I’ve gone overboard with all of these pregnancy photos this time around. However, I don’t know what the universe has planned for us. Thus, I’m trying to embrace this experience as much as I can….

Potty Training

  Potty training has been on my to-do list for about a year and I have always been too happy to find excuses/reasons to keep NOT doing it. Finally, it hit me that we are going to have a new baby here in possibly less than six weeks, so the situation began to develop a “now or…

Getting closer to Christmas… and closer to baby!

    We are 9 days away from Christmas and I am officially 2/3 done with this pregnancy business (28 weeks tomorrow). I’ve been feeling so much movement lately that I’ve been moved to write a little bit about what’s going on. Har har. I hate to say it, but I’m already getting uncomfortable. (And there’s still 12 weeks to…

Nice-looking fall photos of Cece and such via iPhone

      Post titles are not my strength, if you didn’t notice. Life has been enjoyable (for lack of a more descriptive word). Cece has loved wearing her Halloween costumes very much even when it’s not Halloween. And no snow stuck to the ground this entire month! As for new baby, he or she is…

There were three in the bed…

If you didn’t know already, Joe is not a regular contributor or reader of this blog. (Although he does manage to be the second most-featured person besides Cece…) Last week, he took this photo with his phone before he left for work and said that I should post it on here. And since I have nothing else…

Mother’s Day 2013

  It was such a sweet Mother’s Day. We spent the morning at my grandma’s eating good food,  exchanging cards and flowers, letting Cece run around in the yard, and watching her chase the cats around the house (“KITTY CAT!!!”). After coming home to give Cece a chance to nap, we got to hang out…
