Table Rock

Brad and I were able to get away for a few hours on Saturday.

We joined my sister and her family, who book a cabin each year, as well as my parents at Table Rock.

Brad and I chatted with my sister, her husband, and four boys until my parents arrived shortly thereafter. Then, we divided up into two groups.

Preparing for a newborn

Preparing for a newborn can be daunting at times.

There are so many factors to consider with becoming primarily responsible for keeping another little human being alive.

So, I signed up my husband Brad and I for a free online workshop.

Longing

With Memorial Day coming this weekend and temperatures rising, I am longing to get to some water.

I love the ocean, lake, pool or anywhere to swim with limited crowds.

This year, my husband Brad and I may not make it to the beach for a few different reasons, but I am hopeful to get to a lake.

Keeping calm

Keeping calm is easier said than done.

There are many things in the world today that are apt to raise the temperature of a room.

First Mother’s Day

This past weekend, my husband Brad and I recognized my first Mother’s Day.

We shared a breakfast out that morning, attended service with my parents and took them out for lunch. Afterwards, we returned to our place for games.

It’s a BOY!

Brad and I had our 21 week appointment Friday.

With a full anatomy scan, we found out we’re having a healthy, baby boy!

During our visit, the ultrasound showed him sucking his thumb and putting his arm behind his head like Brad does.

I was a thumb sucker when I was little.

Baking

I’ve always enjoyed baking.

When I was little, I would bake cookies with my mom, especially sugar cookies to paint with frosting before Christmas.

But my favorite is chocolate chip cookies.

My dad’s favorite is gingersnaps, and my mom’s is peanut butter cookies; my husband Brad really likes snickerdoodles.

It’s the little things

As this little one grows inside, I am already beginning to treasure memories together.

My husband Brad read a book to the baby for the first time the other night.

One recent morning, before heading out early, Brad kissed me and then the baby bump.

Spring and beyond

The cold of winter is receding while the full heat of summer has not yet begun.

As spring unfolds, pollen is everywhere, and plants are showing the light green of new growth.

Many had the opportunity to travel during spring break.

Pregnancy brain

Pregnancy brain is a real thing.

In the past few weeks, I have forgotten my phone at home only to have to turn around, go back and try again.

Early on, I realized what I’d done while I was still nearby.

But I feel like I have been getting farther and farther from home before the missing phone registers.
