I'm never gonna get used to the 31st century. Caffeinated bacon? Baconated grapefruit? Admiral Crunch?

A Little Something

Ada and Ford getting to know each other.

Welcome, Ada Violet (photos!)

I already posted this one, but I love this picture and don't look have as exhausted as I felt!

Ryan getting a chance to feed his new little girl.  We were supplementing because a) I wasn't able to get any milk/colostrum out yet and b) she had jaundice and needed supplementing to get over it.

A Reason for the Break

I know I haven't updated in a while.  Quite a while, actually.  But I have a good reason for it!  Our gorgeous little girl, Ada Violet, was born on November 18th after a fairly short labor.

Now I say it was short, but it wasn't easy.  I'll type up a quick birth story under the break.

San Diego - part 1

Here is the first section of my San Diego pictures!

Old Doggy

Pregnancy Update! 34 weeks!

It's been a little while, so I figured I should do one :)

Most recent picture - so tired.

How far along? 34 weeks as of tomorrow!

Your baby in fruit/vegetable terms? Just about the size of a large cantaloupe.

Weight gained?  ~10lb (I'll know more after my appointment today!)

Next doctor’s appointment? In about 3 hours.

Maternity clothes? Yoga pants are my saviors.

Sleeping?  Lots of tossing and turning and getting up to pee.  Lots of naps during the day.

Stretch marks? A few around my belly button, but they're not very dark.

Pregnancy perks this week? Slightly closer to being done?

Embarrassing pregnant moment?  My neighbors seeing me hobble down the street.

Baby purchases this week? None.

Gender? Still a girl!

Any movement this week? Uhg, yes!  But also one day without much that ended up with us at Labor & Delivery (she was just poking my back instead).

How’s mama? Horrible hip pains and extreme exhaustion.

What are you looking forward to?  Halloween party in a few weeks!
