Tuesday, March 28th – I was 39 weeks and 5 days pregnant. With my due date looming, I was feeling anxious, impatient, and overwhelmingly excited.

How we’re growing?: At 39 weeks, our little guy’s around 20 inches long and over 7 pounds!

Liv recently suggested… Continue reading Cookie’s Baby Pool
How we’re growing?: At 34 weeks, baby’s around 18 inches long, 5 pounds, and the size of a cabbage or cantaloupe. Although Liv was born right on her due date, I’ve had a gut feeling (and so many dreams that) this little guy’s coming early, so I hope he hangs out another 3 weeks until… Continue reading Cookie: 34 weeks
On Sunday, Liv turned FOUR! A year ago, I asked Liv the following questions, and here’s what our big four year old had to say this year! What is your name? – “L-I-V Luhwee” (*She writes her name on her own now!) Do you have any nicknames? – “Daddy calls me Weasel. You call me… Continue reading Liv is FOUR!
