Protected: A New Chapter! (And Where I’ve Been)

There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.


Two-Year-Old Fun

I’m continually amazed at how much two-year-old mind can retain. It’s quite humbling and keeps me accountable with every action. And, really, it’s just fascinating. So, for memory’s sake, I’m noting some tidbits of our conversation this past Sunday– Caleb to Josh: “There are no strong beginnings, Daddy. I have robots.” (Oh, the stream of consciousnesses.) Caleb […]

Our Before-Residency Vacation

June 14-20, 20014, marks a delightful period for our family. Josh finished intern year and went on break for a couple weeks. So, first, we headed to North Carolina to visit my family.

It’s time to record these observations as a new mommy with 2 under […]

Introducing Baby Girl!

The Story I learned my lesson with the first pregnancy: be patient. Caleb came eight days late, so I wasn’t surprised when I went past my due date (10/14) with baby #2. This time, however, I was determined to be patient and avoid the torturous walks, pineapple core, and evening primrose oil. But, I have to admit […]
