4 Months. And 2.5 Years.

Both kids just had their checkups at the clinic – Riley had his 30 month check up and Leah had her 4 month.  The executive summary: both are healthy, happy, growing well, and meeting all their milestones. Riley Riley is huge.  Ginormously tall and comparably heavy – those are the technical terms, by the way....

A Few More Pictures

Here we have a few new photos from the summer – trips to the pool, the splash pad at the zoo, and hanging out around the house.  Enjoy.

A Few Pictures

Here are a few pictures that I don’t have time to create individual posts for, but they’re all off my iPhone, so it’s pretty much just pictures of the kids from the last two months.
Two Months

Two Months

Leah is now 11 weeks old, so it must be time for me to post her two month information.  Or maybe it’s ever-so-slightly past that time.  She is a wonderful baby even if she is a TOTAL diva.  She is beautifully behaved all the time… assuming she’s being held all the time.  You put her...
One Month Old

One Month Old

I can’t believe it’s been a month.  Where, oh where, has the time gone?  It seems like the last month of pregnancy lasted forever but the first month of Leah’s life has flown by in a whirlwind.  Only about 7.5 weeks left of maternity leave and the weeks are flying by all too quickly.  Leah...
Leah Claire

Leah Claire

She’s here.  In fact, she’s been here for about two and a half weeks.  I’ve been pretty lazy at this blog updating.  And by lazy, I mean breastfeeding eight times a day and taking care of two kids, a husband, plus a revolving door of (welcome) house guests.  But she’s here.  And she’s wonderful. As...
9 Months and Counting

9 Months and Counting

Here I am, 37.5 weeks pregnant.  2.5 weeks to go, give or take.  We have set a rule that Leah can’t come earlier than Monday though since my doctor is out of town until then.  After Monday, it’s up to her. How far along? Almost 38 weeks. Total weight gain: 28 lbs. I am thrilled I’ve...

Pregnancy Update for March

How far along? 33 weeks Total weight gain: I haven’t weighed myself since before we went to San Francisco.  Maybe I ought to do that now.  ::walks into the bathroom and gets on the scale:: The scale says 23 pounds. Not too bad after a week of pasta carbonara and gnocchi from Nob Hill Cafe, filet mignon...
Life in the Last Six or So Months

Life in the Last Six or So Months

Exhausting, chaotic, busy, joyful, stressful, and every other emotion you could possibly imagine has characterized the last half year or so of our lives around here.  I haven’t blogged much, mostly because I haven’t felt like it.  It seems like there isn’t a lot to say these days, though there obviously is.  Normal, everyday life...
Preggo Update: Starting the 3rd Trimester

Preggo Update: Starting the 3rd Trimester

How far along? 29 weeks Total weight gain: 18-20 pounds.  I’m actually pretty happy with that considering that I know I’ve gained muscle from personal training over the last seven months and also (without getting too graphic) how enormous my boobs are.  You know they can weigh up to 10 pounds each when milk comes in? That’s...
Share a Room?

Share a Room?

Okay, so I’m now feeling very torn.  Originally, we were very insistent on Riley and Leah sharing a room.  We’ve been working on spatial arrangements for this to work and since we transitioned Riley to a toddler bed about 3 months ago, we were just going to get Leah a new crib and recycle everything...
