How are you?

December 19, 2012

Everyone keeps nicely asking me how I am. And perhaps if I were pregnant with my first I would say something like, I can’t wait to meet this precious baby. Maybe when I was pregnant with my second I would say that I’m excited to not be pregnant. My response lately is far less cordial. It’s been no secret that […]

Generally I’m a very decisive person. Plus, I’m totally a planner. Those two together usually mean that my mind is made up long before I even need to have my mind made up. It feels like months since I blogged about “What’s in a Name?” I’d like to say the progress has been great since that blog…but I’d be lying. […]

I’m one of those people who cannot read that pamphlet that Walgreens provides with your prescription. The mere suggestion of a potential side effect and I can almost guarantee that I will become symptomatic. So now that I am just about 36 weeks pregnant, I’m having the nervous feeling that I am going to go into labor at any moment. […]

We had an excellent weekend. It wasn’t because we went on vacation or did anything extraordinary. We managed to have a perfect amount of plans and a surprisingly great amount of unstructured downtime. Sunday the blues started though. Today I woke up utterly exhausted and feeling unready to conquer the week. Then I remembered what Mondays used to be like, […]

The Glow

November 21, 2012

There have been many times I have joked that if Adam wants anymore kids, he’s going to have to learn how to get pregnant and birth these children without me! There’s no doubt that I have whined my way through each and every pregnancy. But today, in the spirit once again of Thanksgiving, I am thankful that I have been […]

Newborn Diapers?!?!

November 15, 2012

Yesterday someone gave me newborn diapers. And of course the overwhelming feeling should be, gee thanks that was nice. Instead I find myself in a state of disbelief. I’m going to have a newborn?!?! Seems a little dense on my part, after all I’m as big as a house and suffering from almost every unattractive symptom in the book! Anyone […]

Pregnancy Brain

November 13, 2012

It started with messing up a birthday party time. Next I left Gabby’s coat at a restaurant (fortunately it was a warm day and not like the recent weather). Then there were things I’d forget to get at certain stores. Whatever the story is, I officially have an extreme case of Pregnancy Brain! As if it weren’t hard enough to […]

And then there were five…

November 2, 2012

For the past thirty weeks of this pregnancy, being pregnant has been a complete after thought. Who has time to think about anything when you are crazy busy with two other rugrats?!? But once I crossed the thirty week threshold, the HOLY SH*T WE ARE HAVING A BABY feelings started. This past weekend we purchased a “big girl” bedroom set […]

Adam Land

October 29, 2012

Adam has this ability…let’s say talent, for turning “it” off. This seems to work when the television is on, any program will do, or when it’s time to go to sleep. There have been many times I have been frustrated with this trip he takes to “Adam land” but the truth is that I’m jealous. I have ants in my […]

What’s In a Name?

October 19, 2012

Having a name like Heli has given me major concern when naming my children. My wonderful parents wanted to honor, what I hear was an amazing lady, Aunt Helen. So in 1980 when Helen was only a Great Aunt or Grandma name, they named me Helen. Shortly after they realized that Helen was an old lady’s name and nicknamed me […]
