Eat/Wear/Read: Pregnancy Edition

Last year, for fun, I wrote a few eat/wear/read posts documenting my current favorite foods, “fashion”, and fiction/non-fiction books. I’ve been wanting to do it again but not all three categories in my life have seemed very blog-able lately… or this year. (Namely the food one… I mean, you can only make a bowl of…

Love, Marriage & a Baby Carriage

This spring, Joe and I celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary. We had a pretty fantastic date night and ended the evening by doing a photo session with my friend Rachel. She heard it was our anniversary and said we should probably celebrate with some photos. Her work is STUNNING with a gorgeous story telling style…

2018 in Review

Cheers to the new year! So many good things are upon us, I can feel it! But first, a 2018 recap. The highlights, the good photos, etc. before we are in full 2019 mode! Probably the most significant thing we did last winter was adopt Zuzu. She has been such a weird and wonderful addition…

Our 4th Pregnancy

At the end of summer, Joe and I were thrilled to discover that we were expecting another baby. We visited the doctor, saw and heard a heartbeat, made plans, managed morning sickness, told our girls, and began sharing our news with friends and family. Sadly, six weeks ago on October 26,  my doctor confirmed what…

Welcome, Ares!

One week and two days ago we finally got to meet our newest tiny human!  And after much name deliberation, I’m so happy to officially introduce Ares James Alexander Gaetz. He was born on Friday, May 5 at 10:39 pm weighing 7lbs 14 oz (our biggest baby by one ounce!) and measuring 19.5 inches. With this…

SO. CLOSE. TO. THE. END.

Greetings from the final weeks (possibly days!) of pregnancy! I’ve reached 38 weeks and a huge part of me (mostly the front part) is ready to see my toes again, get out of a parked car without getting stuck, be able to wear more than just my pajama bottoms, and eat the #5 from Jimmy…

The last two weeks via iPhone

                                           I spent the week of my due date waiting and wishing for this baby to arrive (and taking plenty of iPhone photos because I was “saving” my camera for the hospital). Fortunately, my bestie was in town and…

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….

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…
