This is What A Mom of 4 Packs in Her Hospital Bag

My fourth baby is due in three days! I have been working through my to-do list at a super fast pace. These waiting days are both highly productive and snail slow. I'm patiently (impatiently!) awaiting the moment when I will meet my little boy face-to-face. Since we will be delivering at a birth center, my […]

Favorite Pregnancy Products (from a mom of 4!)

For my first pregnancy, I was 24 - young, elated, and every kick was brand new. Now, ten years later - I am 34, happily expecting baby #4, and every kick is [still] a miracle. This time around, I'm a bit of a minimalist when it comes to pregnancy products. I've tried a lot of […]

My Due Date Is Approaching

These last days are wistful and exciting, frightening and full. Soon - very soon - our second child will be here in our arms. We'll be holding her and smelling her sweet baby hair and getting lost in her deep and thoughtful eyes. I've received a number of requests for a "pregnancy update" so here's […]

Boy or Girl? Guess and Win!

Tomorrow marks the almost halfway point in my pregnancy and the day of THE sonogram.
