Tonight our very last meal is being delivered to our doorstep and this past Monday I posted my very last guest post as part of my babymoon guest post series. Although it’s hard for me to believe sweet Ninu is indeed six weeks old and nearly all grown up. I plan on soaking up every [...]

I didn’t allow myself to want a girl until I had her. And now that I have her I have completely surrendered to all things girl. Like ruffled sun hats. And super cute dresses. And there’s always super cute floral pajamas. I also like to sit and daydream about the knitted woolen jumpers, picky pants [...]

by flowers on June 2, 2010 · 6 comments

At the risk of obsessively posting about being pregnant and getting ready for baby I’m here to talk more about….BABY! I can’t help it. I opened my email this morning to find my mothering pregnancy update telling me that I’m officially 38 weeks pregnant. Holy mama of all mamas: what a wake up call! Both [...]
