Five on Friday

Y’all! It’s Friday. Which is pretty funny as a mostly-stay-at-home-mom, since, well, Nora Beth doesn’t know what a weekend means, David works on weekends, and my schedule stays the same, but nonetheless, mentally I get so excited for the more relaxed feel of weekends. I’ve rounded up a pretty random list of five things for… Continue reading Five on Friday

Devious Distractions

When Nora Beth was a handful of months old, she developed an affinity for glasses… and a death grip.

Where Nothing is Growing, Everything Is

One month and three days ago we learned we were pregnant. We conceived on our own (in fact, David’s first words were, “how did this happen?” Well, buddy, when two married people love each other very much…), miraculously without any medical intervention, and we expected to deliver Nora Beth’s little sibling on May 18, exactly… Continue reading Where Nothing is Growing, Everything Is
