An Open Letter to NICU Parents 

If you haven’t read my other posts about the birth of my son or the other one about how difficult pregnancy has been on my body, than you may not now I’ve had 3/4 premature children who in total have spent 140+ days in the NICU. Lots of days are better than most but you […] Read more…

Celebrate World Prematurity Day with encouraging messages from a mom who's experienced the NICU more than I'd like to admit.

World Prematurity Month

I’m sure if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I just had a baby boy born at 24.5 gestation. I’ve also had a daughter born at 30.1 weeks and my oldest son at 34 weeks. Clearly this mama isn’t meant to carry babies full term. I have 4 kids all together so that […] Read more…

Pregnancy and Bedrest

Nothing can be more frustrating and deflating than being told that you need to be on bedrest. I’ve been put on bedrest 3/5 pregnancies.

Connecting through Vacations

A hard thing to do with family is travel but it can have some of the most rewarding results. You can definitely get on each others nerves but you also are in a situation that you’ll be able to make memories that will last a lifetime. If you read my post about how we just went […] Read more…

A Personal Post

What can I say about this. 2013 was a really hard year personally for me. There were a lot of downs last year and it seemed that when things couldn’t get more down, boom. I felt like I was being kicked over and over. I now know that since I’ve made it through the storm […] Read more…
