* Today is my last day of maternity leave. I thought this would be a lot easier this time—since I’ve been through it before—but it’s really not all that much easier. I guess we’ll see what happens on Monday, but my motherly anxiety is through the roof right now. I don’t know if there will [...]
A few weeks ago, on September 11, we celebrated “The Big 3.” My firstborn, my BABY… she turned three. I don’t know how it’s possible.
This age is simultaneously awesome and terrifying. I’ve heard people call 3-year-old children “threenagers” and although we are only a few weeks into this, I already think it’s fitting. Last [...]
We had Vivienne’s newborn photos done when she was just five days old, when she was still good and sleepy. The timing of the pics was pretty great in the grand scheme of things, too, since the shoot was able to double as our annual family photo session—aside from the maternity shoot, we last had [...]
I almost didn’t bother with doing ANY maternity photos for Vivienne’s pregnancy. We had done some DIY ones when I was pregnant with Nora, and I had been really happy with them. But this time around, we didn’t have much time for such things—plus, with Nora, I knew it would be even more challenging to [...]
One of the hardest adjustments to having a baby in the house again has been getting used to how long it takes to get out of the house these days. We generally need to time our departures so that Vivienne has just eaten and had a diaper change before we head out. Then there’s packing [...]
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 31 and have been married to Michael for five years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
