Project BG2, Week 4 – Last Full Week at Grandma’s House

Project BG2, Week 4 – Last Full Week at Grandma’s House

Project BG2 1

Yay! Another entry in my photo diary, Project BG2. It’s Week 4, which means she’s technically a month old, even though it’s not the exactly the date yet. She’s still been a bit fussy, especially at night, but we’ve been managing alright. It sucks that it’s my last full week with her until I go down to Miami again. We’ve been spending the month at my mom’s house so she… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 3 – Just Chillin’

Project BG2 2

We’re on to Week 3 of Project BG2 and she is definitely putting us all through a good workout. She’s been a bit fussy lately, which I hear is normal for babies around this age, and I truly believe she has acid reflux (breaks my heart to see her go through any pain), but otherwise she’s been awake a lot more lately. Of course, she expects someone to jiggle or… Read more »

Review: Sign of Labor

Review: Sign of Labor

Reviews 1

When you’re pregnant there’s a lot of things you have to do differently. One of the big things is to practice “Safe Driving” because you want to make sure you’re doing whatever you can to protect yourself and your growing baby. I’ve always seen the classic “Baby On Board” sign that parents stick on their cars to make people aware that we all need to drive safely, but there’s never… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 2 – See, I’m Awake More Now!

Project BG2 7

It’s Week 2 of my photo diary, Project BG2, and I’ve got loads of pictures from the week to show you. BG2 just went to the doctor yesterday and he said she gained a pound, which is awesome, and she looks great so far. She’s been a bit fussy this week, we switched her to the powdered formula & she’s trying to adjust to that, but otherwise she’s good. Growing… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 1 – Life as a Newborn

Project BG2 8

I decided I wanted to do kind of like a Photo Diary of BG2 to help build some wonderful memories to look back on. Now I know I’m not only busy with my kids, school, and life in general, trying to post anything everyday is definitely not going to happen for me, haha. So I decided to do a weekly post, entitled Project BG2, showcasing pictures, maybe with some blurbs… Read more »

2nd Time Around – A Birth Story

2nd Time Around – A Birth Story

BG2, Parenting 7

So it’s roughly around 1:30 am on Wednesday, March 2nd and I get up to go to the bathroom, per my usual routine at night, being pregnant and all. I start to notice a “crampy” feeling in my belly, but I chalk it up to Braxton Hicks contractions since those have been going on for forever. I try to get back into bed, only to find that these contractions continue… Read more »
