Memories from my youth  Posted on 09/24/2014
It’s funny how random memories from childhood will hit you. I remember having a slumber party and being amazed at how fast one of my friends could pee. The time she went into the bathroom to the time she came out, 37 seconds. Odd...

Wanna see my nipple?  Posted on 09/11/2014
I have a photo of each of my nipples at their worst. I’m not going to post them online, of course.  But if you go to this link - that’s pretty much what my bad nipple looked like. Yeah, really. Luckily, my...

Can I finish a post?  Posted on 09/10/2014
Baby J has been napping for shit lately (20-30 minutes every 2-3 hours or so), so I’ve had less time than normal.  He’s been sleeping great at night, though (generally 7 hours, though we’ve gotten an 8 and a 9 hour...

Baby J’s Birth Story  Posted on 07/12/2014
I think it goes without saying, but here’s your official TMI alert. I can’t complain too much about my labor. I think it was fairly easy and quick, all things considered. A week before my due date, I woke up about 1:20am...

a month on  Posted on 07/11/2014
I think it goes without saying that it’s been a difficult month. I spent five days in the hospital, followed by five days of home health visits three times a day (more on all that later), while trying to also deal with a newborn....

I’m a mom  Posted on 06/20/2014
The title of this post should not be read as an announcement – instead, it should be read with a note of wonder, confusion, disbelief, and awe.  I spent most of my pregnancy thinking how surreal it was to be pregnant, and now I...
