• Discovering Dexter: 5 Months

    Five months down with no signs of slowing!  My sweet boy, these growing pains are very real for you. Teething has gotten especially rough, and it’s so hard to see you in pain. But with all these aches come great new strides, and it’s amazing to watch as you discover something new nearly every day.

  • Discovering Dexter: 4 Months

    Child, you need to slow your roll on this whole growing thing! In a matter of moments you went from 0-3 month clothes to the bigger side of 3-6 month clothes, and my biceps are feeling every ounce of it.

  • Knocked-Up Chronicles: 38 Weeks

    Any day now. My doc likes baby boys to get to 38 weeks, and we’re there. I feel like I’m all belly, and moving in general has gotten difficult. My feet are all kinds of swollen and I can’t stand for more than a few minutes without them seriously hurting. So, yeah, we’re right at the end.

  • Knocked-Up Chronicles: 37 Weeks

    I’m huge and the end is near, thank goodness. #Babything is positioned right where he needs to be and is probably weighing in at around 6.5 lbs. There’s a good chance he may come early, but it’s hard tellin’ not knowin’, so we’re just going to be as prepared as possible.

    Nine. Damn. Months. 

    Y’all. That’s three-quarters of a year … and he’s still not done cooking. I’m feeling every ounce of this third trimester: I’ve napped at least once every day, I can’t move without being in pain, the waddle is strong with this one and I’m just straight exhausted. I couldn’t even be fucked to try to look any cuter for this week’s photo. Just a few more weeks to go …

  • Knocked Up Chronicles: 35 Weeks

    You guys, I feel huge. Like, I’m being led around by the bowling ball that is my belly. And #babything pretty much has nowhere else to go, so he’s just pushing up against my ribcage like it ain’t no thang … which, uh, is the opposite of fun. But we’re getting closer and closer to the due date, which means we’re getting closer to my taking maternity leave (such a weird concept, not working). We also have infant CPR and prenatal classes coming up, so education! Yay!

  • Knocked-Up Chronicles: 34 Weeks

    Not much has happened since last week. It’s too hot for me to even think about going outside, and with #MFE picking up a second job, I’ve been pretty solidly couch-potatoing. I did start watching season 7 of “The Good Wife” and it’s rekindled how much I love Alicia Florrick. I’m also on book three of the Harry Potter series and am making some serious progress through that.
