I'm gonna see how many references I can make to members of NWA throughout this blog's tenure. After relaxing and reclining for the morning, I met Justin at the doctor at 1:30 PM. We were taken back to the ultrasound room quickly, something for which I was very thankful. It was my first belly ultrasound… Continue reading Today Was a Good Day
Yesterday, we had our 8wk ultrasound to check in on our little guys. According to various apps, they're the size of either kidney beans or raspberries. I'm finding it disconcerting that they're compared to food constantly, but I also am having trouble thinking of alternatives. Perhaps a small pebble? A stack of seven nickels? 300… Continue reading Krasbeans and other units of measurement

My friends said it was probably nothing: either an irritation from my suppository, old blood, just a fluke, etc. I was able to… Continue reading Holy. Shit.
If I've been around your children for any significant portion of time, I assume you've heard me singing "I love eggs, from my head down to my legs...." This commercial apparently resonated with me a bit too much because it's constantly stuck in my head. I thought it was something everyone knew, but I've gotten more… Continue reading I ❤ Eggs
