28 Weeks

Spot has been cooking for 28 weeks now.  That’s 7 whole months!  She still doesn’t have a name, but we do have it narrowed down to about half a dozen options.  That’s a good thing, right?  I’ve already been to one appointment for her this week, but I’ve got another tomorrow.  It’s the glucose test, Read More …

My Stapler

Funny story: at 20 weeks baby Turner is the size of a Swingline stapler.  If you’ve seen the 1999 movie Office Space, then you know the one I’m talking about.  If not, reference photos below. And, yes, I am a huge nerd. I have my very own red Swingline stapler at the office. And, I Read More …
