Preparing for Baby #3

Seeing as the little guy is due for his eviction notice tomorrow morning, I figured it might be due time to do up a post on how I got ready for my upcoming C-Section and recovery. One of the biggest obstacles was setting up his room and getting meals ready. His room before was the…

3rd Pregnancy Update

Hi there!  With 2 days to go until my scheduled C-Section (!!), I figured it might be time to do an update on this pregnancy and how me and the little guy are doing.  This pregnancy has been a bit harder than the girls were. He’s been head down the entire time and starting to…

Day in the Life | June 20, 2017

Yesterday I participated with Ali Edwards for Day in the Life. I’m still trying to do it monthly right now, so it was a perfect opportunity to get June’s DITL done and recorded. I think overall it was a pretty good day to document. The only thing that I really miss is getting Keith in…

101 in 1001 – 3 Month Update

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on my current 101 in 1001 list, so I figured that I might as well do a 3-month update before I’m out of commission for a couple weeks once Baby Boy arrives. If you want to see the original list, here it is. I also have a…

Day in the Life 2017 – May 22, 2017

7:30am | As usual, Dominique is the first one up, so I get up with her, grab a cup of coffee, and put on Finding Nemo. Violet joins us a couple minutes later, so I pull out the hide-a-bed for them to lay down on and grab my knitting while I sit on the couch…

Week in the Life 2017 in the Album

  I finished up my 2017 Week in the Life album about a week after the project ended, but I haven’t posted my finished layouts on here. A couple things I found out this time around: 1) I really need to think ahead a couple weeks (or even a month) and figure out what shots…

Week in the Life 2017 | Saturday Words & Photos

4:45am | I have the extra early morning shift at work this morning and walk into the living room to see Violet and her cousin Maddy sleeping on the hide-a-bed. Sneaky picture for the win! And although I like working the 5am-1pm shift, I’m looking forward to no more 4am wake-up calls soon! Also, noting…

Happy 3rd Birthday Dominique!!

Dear Dominique: Happy 3rd Birthday my little big girl! In celebration of your birthday, here’s 10 things about you right now! 1) You love your sister, mommy and daddy. You’re always eager to snuggle with any of us, but especially Daddy in the middle of the night. 2) You really love your blanket. It’s hard to…

Week in the Life 2017 | Friday Words & Photos

Waking up to a little Dominique crawling into bed with us around 6:45am. Of course she snuggles with Daddy first thing in the morning. Surveying the kitchen mess from last night. Oh well, guess my morning got a bit more busy. Making breakfast for the girls’ and coffee for me and Keith. Giving Violet a…

Week in the Life 2017 | Thursday Words & Photos

This morning started off really early. Dominique had crawled into our bed somewhere between 2-4am and woke up when my alarm went off at 6am. And the entire time she was in our bed, she was sleeping, but squirming like unreal. I don’t think me nor Keith slept well. Me and Dominique sat down on…

Week in the Life 2017 | Wednesday Words & Photos

Most days I’m up around 6am during the weekdays. Keith usually goes to the gym first thing in the morning, so I try to make sure that I have some quiet time to myself before the chaos starts for the day. Most days I grab a fresh cup of coffee (with a healthy dose of Irish…
