5 Tips for Weight Loss After Baby {& Giveaway} #DeltaLabs

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC. I know some women are concerned about weight loss after pregnancy, especially considering breastfeeding. What about supply?

My Must-Have Baby Gear for Baby’s First Six Months

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of NUK. The opinions and text are all mine. Having a baby is a miracle in itself, but sometimes those to-do lists and shopping/packing lists from all the parenting books, magazines, and websites can seem quite overwhelming. Do you really need eleventy-billion spit-up rags, a […]

Today, She is Six – Her Birth Story

The November/December before she arrived was a busy one. My brother got married in Tampa on Thanksgiving weekend, the military relocated us from one on-post house to another just two weeks before Christmas, forcing us to package up our entire lives and stuff it into an (old) new house. This move caused us to have […]

The Playlist of Your Life

It was September 26th, 2008, and I felt as big as a house, being a day overdue with Baby Dude. I delved head first into the music folder on my then-desktop computer and played the dancier of my tunes to rock out a bit, hoping to dance the baby out. One of my more happier […]

Baby Love {Pictures}

I don’t think I can quite elaborate the tired-elated-exhausted-excited-aching feeling I’m going through at the moment; chock-filled with so much emotion and contentment and the OHMYGODIHAVESEVENKIDSNOW feeling.

38-39 Weeks Pregnant – The Dressed-Up, Small Baby, Broken Arm Edition

Nesting hit me like a freight train this week, and I have been go-go-go like my life depended on it. Chock-full of energy and buzzing around here like a possessed 50’s housewife, my poor husband doesn’t know what hit ‘im. In all my unbounded energy, I decided playing dress-up for the doctor’s appointment might be […]

A Pregnancy Haircut Before Birth? Gulp.

Today I had an all-important doctor’s appointment to get my 39-week Are-you-ready-to-give-birth-yet? check (that crazy update will occur with tomorrow’s post complete with belly pics). As I stood up from the table, I noticed the mirror on the back of the exam room’s door. (Have you all noticed this, too? Why do doctor’s exam rooms each have […]

Nesting and Happy Baby Mail

This weekend has been a flurry of wonderful weather, an excellent burst of energy, and lots and lots of nesting. It has felt marvelous to be on my feet all day (words you never thought you’d hear from a fully pregnant, ready-to-go-at-any-time, right?), and getting everything “ready” for this baby’s arrival. Slowly but surely I […]
