SJB’s Birth Story

I have always loved reading or hearing people’s birth stories and many people have been curious to hear how things went this time so here goes.

To follow suit with how the rest of this pregnancy has been, spoiler alert, everything was harder. I’ll try to keep the story to the point while still giving you the details.

Here is Shepherd’s birth story.

Four Weeks With Shep

Shepherd James Bell, SJB, has been with us now for four weeks! To say it’s been a whirlwind would be an understatement. Lots of days have been trying and have resulted in lost patience or frustration or overwhelming anxiety. I’ve had my share of sob sessions. Some for good reasons, some probably for no reason …

Baby Number Two: Third Trimester Part Two

I’ve hit my due date! Which they tell me is an arbitrary number and guesstimate but also that if I don’t deliver as we get into week 41, we’ll need to talk induction. I feel a sense of accomplishment for making it full term and I’ve been patient but now I feel as though I’m on a timeline that isn’t my baby’s or my own.

The Best Money We’ve Spent Lately…

We’ve been pondering the idea of a play set for awhile now and after some research and lots of searching, we took the plunge! Our neighborhood has a great playground but it stays pretty crowded and with having a little one on the way and expecting to continue to spending plenty of time at home, we decided we wanted to get our own thing. Plus, Pfeiffer loved the idea of having her very own swing.

Saturday Scenes

Happy weekend! Hope you are enjoying it thus far. Here’s a little behind the scenes/day in the life post. Usually on Saturdays Pfeiffer has Spanish lessons at a local park and Jeff golfs but today we were expecting rain so we called the lessons off. Not surprising for my family, they chanced the weather and hoped it wouldn’t pour on them and headed for the golf course. My dad and his wife are in town and my husband and brother love golfing so I’m sure they’ll enjoy their time together. Pfeiffer and I are holding down the fort.
