Had Time to Do My Hair!

I haven’t had time to do more than rub some product in my wet hair, scrunch up my curls and let them air-dry since C was born.  That’s four months.  Imagine my excitement when I saw Hubster and C sleeping in the recliner yesterday morning.  I had Continue Reading…

Raising a Child in a Residence Hall

I’ve mentioned in the past that Hubster has a live-in graduate assistantship.  He is a residence hall director and we live in the hall director apartment in a residence hall.  There are distinct pros and cons to raising a child in a residence Continue Reading…

C’s 4-Month Checkup

C had his 4-month checkup with his pediatrician today.  He showered his nurse and doctor with smiles until that first immunization needle poked his thigh.  He’s 13 pounds, 12 ounces and 25 inches long.  His weight percentile actually decreased Continue Reading…

A Fabulous Sunday

I had the most fabulous Sunday.  C slept until SEVEN O’CLOCK!  This is huge – he’s been getting up between 5 and 6:30.  I had the opportunity to bask in the glow of his smiles before heading over to the gym, where I started doing the Couch to 5k! Continue Reading…

Packing Away Baby Clothes

Earlier this week, I posted about how C has been growing like a weed.  I really thought I could still get two more weeks out of the bigger sleepers and onesies.  No such luck!

I reluctantly packed away all of C’s 3-month onesies and sleepers, along with his newborn Continue Reading…

Reconnecting With Old Friends

There’s nothing that I love more about social media than the ability to reconnect with old friends.  I’ve been able to keep in touch with several of them, but there’s one that really touched my heart tonight.

Maybe two years ago or more, I became Continue Reading…

One Year Ago Today I Found Out I Was Pregnant

It was one year ago today that I woke up at 6am and decided to take a pregnancy test.  I was about to join a boot camp fitness team with three other grad students.  I hadn’t been feeling quite right and my period was late (although with PCOS, the latter part was not Continue Reading…

I’m Running a 5k!

Our local MOMS Club has organized a workout club to train for a 5k at the end of October.  I haven’t joined the MOMS Club yet, but now I plan to!  It sounds like we’ll be using an adaptation of the Couch to 5k program to prepare.  One of my personal fitness Continue Reading…

Saving Your Sanity

I read a blog today over at the fabulous marriagemotherhoodandmadness about sanity-saving activities.  We definitely have some in common (Keeping Up With the Kardashians!).  Here is my list of things that keep me sane throughout the day/week (and here is marriagemotherhoodandmadness‘ list!)

Have you Facebook users noticed this new feature that displays your status from one or two years ago in the right sidebar?  It’s pretty cool to see what you were thinking on that day one or two years prior.  Today was pretty interesting…

Growing Like a Weed!

I put a 6-month onesie on C for the first time today – and the length fits perfectly!  I’ve noticed that the Carter’s onesies are made for tall and skinny babies, so they have been perfect for C.  All of the other 3-6 month onesies are SO wide on Continue Reading…
