Hubster Just Made My Day

I’ve been feeling bad about myself lately (stupid Zoloft). What we need to remember is that our loved ones will love us no matter what.

I’m up really early this morning. C climbed into bed with us at 5am and wouldn’t stop rubbing my face. So after he fell back asleep I Continue Reading…

Devotion

When I became a mother about five years earlier than my life plan allowed for, I was unsure what to expect. I knew I’d be in love with my sweet baby boy. I knew my life would change dramatically. Life would no longer be about Hubster and me – it Continue Reading…

So There Was This Guy and This Girl, and They Fell in Love…

Do you ever look through your old pictures on Facebook? I was doing that tonight and came across some pictures of Hubster and me that made me feel all kinds of sentimental. So I thought I’d share some of them with you and tell you how we met, because in the past three years Continue Reading…

My Sweet Boy

I’m crazy about my little boy.  He does this sweet thing where he puts his hands on my face, and pulls my face close to his for kisses or snuggles.  It melts my heart in ways I can’t describe.

Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from our trip. Continue Reading…

Contentment

I usually take the path less traveled, and my journey to motherhood was no different.  If you’re not familiar with my story, I’ll give you the abridged version.  In July 2010, I was told I had PCOS (polycystic ovaries) and it would be difficult for me to Continue Reading…

When Friends Are Like Family

Last night, we celebrated my friend’s bachelorette party and it was a blast!  I’ve known L and her fiance, J, since college.  J was Hubster’s roommate for two years, before they both got involved in residence life.  L, J, Hubster and I used to have a couple’s Continue Reading…

Meant To Be

If Hubster and I hadn’t met in college, where would we be now?  It’s a question we were pondering yesterday as we marked five years since we officially started dating.

We decided that neither of us would have broken off our prior relationships, Continue Reading…

Joy and Guilt

Life is starting to feel good again.  Not all the time, but I’ll take even a moment of it.  My body is finally adjusting to the increased dosage of antidepressant that my doctor prescribed three weeks ago for my PPD.  I’m starting to feel a lot of Continue Reading…

Sweet Baby Kisses

What parent doesn’t love those sloppy, open-mouthed baby kisses?!  Oh, they’re just the best.  So sweet and filled with so much love.  C first started giving kisses a couple of months ago, but he’s been stingy with them lately.  After feeling Continue Reading…

Laughing With My Son

C was chowing down on his rice cereal when he let out a gigantic burp.  He raised his eyebrows and started giggling.  It was the first time he laughed at himself.  His hearty laughter made me start laughing.  We just looked at each other and 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…
