Second Pregnancy Bump (and Labor) Comparison, Part 4

Second Pregnancy Bump (and Labor) Comparison…Ahh pregnancy weeks 37 and beyond, a full term baby bump!  I had to wait to do this final post because I needed to know how long my little guy would be staying before I could finish the first and second pregnancy bump comparisons, and boy did he surprise us…

Turquoise Baby Sprinkle for Baby #2 (x 2!)

Turquoise Baby Sprinkle for Baby #2…When you have a second baby, you don’t have a Baby Shower but rather a Baby Sprinkle. You already have so much from Baby #1, you only need to be sprinkled with gifts rather than showered with gifts. Cute, right?  I have friends who live in two different parts of the country, so I actually had two baby sprinkles for Baby #2!  One was thrown by my loving husband at our house and the other by my two lovely girlfriends at the local community centre!  So much fun…

Comic Con: Pregnant, Cosplay and Family Adventures

Comic Con: Pregnant, Cosplay and Family Adventures…We recently went to Comic Con as a family and oh man was it ever fun! Carrying a 1.5 year old, being seven months pregnant, and being dressed in our Batman, Joker and Poison Ivy costumes made it extra special (and tiring), but we are already excited to go again next year with the new baby. He will be about 6 months old, so the family costume ideas are endless…

Second Pregnancy Bump Comparison, Part 1

Second Pregnancy Bump Comparison, Part 1…Second pregnancies are so different than first pregnancies. With the first one, I had so much free time to obsess over being pregnant and expecting a new baby. I researched everything—the best stroller, the safest crib, the top breast pump, natural birthing positions, baby name meanings. I knew exactly what fruit my baby was comparable in size to and every developmental detail of each week. With this second pregnancy, I’m so busy looking after my first baby that sometimes I forget I’m even pregnant…

Babymoon Tips and Las Vegas Gender Reveal

Babymoon Tips and Las Vegas Gender Reveal…Babymoons are all the rage right now and we just returned from our second one. For the first baby, we did a 10 day trip to California. We started with a few days in LA doing some of the most incredible things, then rented a convertible and took two days to drive up the coast to San Francisco where we spent a few more amazing days. …
