• Olivia Ronnie: 5 Months

    HOW is it possible that I am already typing this post? Next month, Olivia will be 6 months old and we will be halfway to her first birthday. I’m always pretty future-focused but right now I would be fine with time standing still a little longer. top left photo by Anne Casey Photography Size: Olivia is mainly wearing size 3-6 clothes, almost out of size 2 diapers and her chubby little feet don’t fit into several shoes I had for her. Eating: Breastfeeding like a champ! We’re starting solids next month when she is 6 months and I am excited to see how she likes it. We’re going to try…

  • Olivia Ronnie: 3 Months

    Something weird is happening with my blog. Every month from the 25th until the 1st, it’s down because of bandwidth. I don’t have the time to find a solution so from now on I am getting all my posts finished before the 25th…except in this case, this should have went live on August 28th and I forgot…whoops!

  • A Letter To My Daughter | Dear Olivia

    Darling Olivia, I have spent every minute of everyday with you for the last 40 weeks. You are the only person who knows what my heartbeat and terrible singing voice sound like from inside. You are going to change my life in so many ways but the biggest one being that you are going to make me a mom. From the moment I learned about you I have been filled with excitement and that excitement has only grown since September. I have always been so close with my mom and knowing that I have the opportunity of that relationship with you is life changing in and of itself. I look…
