Twenty weeks plus 3 days. That’s how long medical science has dictated we have been together. I woke up this morning, exhausted and groggy. It’s been a really rough patch for me, this new relationship. As tired and fatigued as I am, getting to a state of rest is far more elusive than it has ever… Continue reading [Musings of a Mommy] Here we go again!
So as a follow-up of last week’s blog post, where I recapped the top five life lessons and loves of 2016 (quite honestly, my favorite blog post to date…check it out HERE), I thought I would share some of the things I hope to learn and love as I am living through 2017. I say… Continue reading Living in 2017: What I’m Hoping (and Planning) to Learn and Love
Christmas Day, 2014. Just 32 minutes into the day, you came screaming into the world. You were exactly 1 week past your due date by that point, and then decided 37 hours of labor would be a great way to make your grand entrance into the world. The moment you landed in my arms made… Continue reading …and just like that, you’re two years old.
December 15, 2014 This day is fairly significant for a number of reasons: It’s my mom’s birthday (Happy Birthday, mom!). It’s the first day of my first pregnancy’s maternity leave.

20 weeks. Today, I have reached the midpoint of my first pregnancy. It seems impossible, yet I can’t remember what it feels like NOT to be pregnant anymore. It’s odd how my brain can ponder such paradoxes of life and yet can’t remember simple vocabulary words it normally could produce on the fly at any… Continue reading Musings of a [Not Yet] Mommy | Chapter 11
So this “Not Yet” Mommy is currently on vacation in my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia (and just as a side note, it is definitely a crazy, emotional walk down memory lane…I blame the pregnancy hormones, honestly). But there is one quick bit of news I’d like to share with you all… …we did find out… Continue reading Musings of a [Not Yet] Mommy | Chapter 9
Nine weeks ago today, I wrote this post announcing to the world that I had taken a test, the results of which would alter the course of my life forever. It was a simple test, with no real right or wrong answer, but oh so important nonetheless. It was a memorable morning, to say the… Continue reading Musings of a [Not Yet] Mommy | Chapter 8
…look closely…there be babies there… By the time you read this post, I will have taken the final blood test of a month-long process of medication, shots, ultrasounds, procedures, and blood tests. I may not know the answer to the question that hangs in the air yet, or maybe I will (depending what time of… Continue reading Musings of a [Not Yet] Mommy | Chapter 7
…feeling frozen in time… I had one of those moments. You know…THOSE moments…when you start “having it out” with the Creator in your head. [Complete with all the internal hysterics that comes with having a tantrum before your Heavenly Father.] I never said it was a proud moment. It was what it was. It would… Continue reading Musings of a [Not Yet] Mommy | Chapter 6
It’s been a while since I’ve written one of these “wanna-be-mommy-musings” posts. I’m sure a lot of you are wondering whether the silence actually meant that I was simply biding my time before I felt I could safely share that *GASP* we have a “bun in the oven” (apparently 12 weeks is the week of… Continue reading Musings of a [Not Yet] Mommy | Chapter 5
