The last week…

This past week is our last week without baby boy a part of our life. I’m a tad addicted to pictures … and document everything. So here is a sneak peek into our last week without baby! Top to bottom, left to right: baby boy is making it harder to fit into booths at restaurants.. with ym sister in town, […]

Maternity Photos

We have known Scott and Stacy for 3-4 years now. They went to a home group we used to be a part of, and are amazing people. They have two of the cutest kids on the planet and these amazingly HUGE hearts. I mean, they met working in an orphanage in South Africa! WOW! They own Urban Earth Photography, and […]

Forget answers, more questions

Last night we sat down and created a list of 32 questions for our OB today. It was our last appointment before the c-section next Monday, and I needed to have a ‘picture’ in my head before I arrived at the hospital next week. I was feeling ready, and strong, and excited to know what was going to happen. I […]

Corn Maze

*DISCLAIMER* Yes, I have been TERRIBLY remiss in posting – I have loads of belly shots, funny stories and even pictures from our Denver trip. We’ve just been swamped the past few weeks! So here is a teaser from today – and a belly shot at the end!*   Our third annual corn maze was today – it always begins […]

22.5 Weeks

Yes yes,  I fell off the bandwagon and had to do a “half week” again. I can blame the trip to the ER for throwing off my week, right? Or the fact that I opened my private practice back up for the fall session this week? All quite valid excuse… er… reasons. Right? *smile*     <3 Oliver and Tara

Watching Soccer

Boy, oh boy, do we have a kicker on our hands! We’ve been blessed to feel this baby WAY earlier than expected. First flutters were at 14 weeks and kicks were at 19 weeks (for both me and O!). For first pregnancies it’s usually closer to 20 weeks for “quickenings” and 24 weeks for consistent solid movements. We’ve enjoyed this […]

21 Weeks

Dear Baby Boy, Good golly you are getting big. This isn’t just showing via the bump – but also in strength! Just 21 weeks and already we can see your kicks and punches when we watch my belly! This week you are approximately 10 1/2 inches long. You love lemonade and you hate it when mommy gets hungry. You kick […]

20 Weeks

Hello Banana and happy half birthday! I cannot believe we are halfway to meeting this little boy 🙂 That is both extremely exciting and extremely sobering … only 20 more weeks of this experience we waited so so so long for. Oliver gets to feel him kick regularly now, and I feel him daily. That has it’s good side and […]

17 Weeks

Excuse the disheveled look – I realized we wouldn’t be home till after dark AGAIN tonight, so I had Oliver take this of me thing morning before I even had a shower! He was standing in his PJs and I threw on clothes before I headed out to the barn. One day we’ll put lights in that nursery…. I find […]
