The fast lane: The birth of Magnus
The fast lane: The birth of Magnus

One month ago our lives changed forever when Mike and I welcomed our sweet baby boy, Magnus Michael, into the world. These last few weeks have seen lots of ups and downs (and we haven’t seen a whole lot of sleep), but whenever I look at Magnus’ cute little face and chubby little cheeks, all the tears and frustration melt […]

Home remedy: The birth of Fanon
Home remedy: The birth of Fanon

Towards the end of the summer, I dreamt of being at the beach in the clearest water with little minnows swimming all around me. I was adamant that I wasn’t pregnant, despite everyone’s knowing—side eyes. And although I wasn’t pregnant at that point, we conceived shortly thereafter. Maybe the “Mother of Fish” was trying to give […]

A gut feeling: The birth of Clarence
A gut feeling: The birth of Clarence

On the night of August 22, 2016, I started having contractions 5-7 minutes apart. I told my husband to pack up because I was ready to have the baby! My in-laws stayed home to be with our toddler. While my husband drove us to the hospital, I remember watching funny pet videos on YouTube to ease […]

Scar of honor: The birth of Savannah
Scar of honor: The birth of Savannah

I had my first contraction just three short hours after ringing in 2017. I was 41 weeks and 5 days pregnant, and I was READY for my girl to make her entrance. Momma is always about 15 minutes late, so it only made sense for my daughter to show up late as well. My contractions […]

Seeing it all: The birth of Carlos
Seeing it all: The birth of Carlos

I am the mother of a beautiful 6-month-old baby boy! I would say that my baby is the most handsome and perfect, but in reality, all babies are. All babies are wonderful and all mothers play a very difficult role every day. But without a doubt, it is the best experience that exists … being a […]

STATE Bags Wellington tote

I’m pretty critical of diaper bags. I’ve had dozens in my 10 years as a parent, and they’ve all fallen short in some way or another. Either I bought a trendy pattern that I grew tired of in 6 months, the bag didn’t hold up well or I realized that the “random big tote” idea […]

A healing delivery: The birth of Arthur
A healing delivery: The birth of Arthur

Birth is birth, whether it is in an operating room, a birth center, a living room or the middle of a forest. This wasn’t our first rodeo. We were thrilled to find out that we were expecting our fourth child. It wasn’t very long at all after seeing the positive pregnancy test that I began […]

A wonderful surprise: The birth of Nora
A wonderful surprise: The birth of Nora

We weren’t sure if we wanted children. My husband, Chaz, and I met when we were freshmen in college. Our relationship began as friends which quickly grew into a lot more! We were married young and very in love. This July, we will celebrate 12 happy years of marriage, and we will have a new […]

Eye on the prize: The birth of Katalina

I have decided to share my birth story because the day before I was induced, I was desperately searching for a similar story to help me prepare. While no story could have truly prepared me, I hope mine will help other new moms! February 1 was my due date. I was off work, and I had […]

Natural healing: The birth of John
Natural healing: The birth of John

One year ago today, I experienced a natural, unmedicated birth for the first time, as I brought our son—and fourth child—into the world. The memories of his birth are still so vivid; I literally cannot grasp how this year has gone by already. The night before his birth, I had just put our girls to […]

Maxi-Cosi Dana For2 Double Stroller

My husband and I were given the biggest shock of our lives when we found out we were expecting twins! Having a little boy and a little girl at the same exact time just wasn’t on my life radar, and I was completely blindsided by the news. Once a little time passed, I got accustomed […]
