My first Blog

OK, so I decided to start a blog. I have been so bad about keeping up with my Aiden Jeremiah fan club and I thought this might be an easier way to get the same information out to everyone. Plus I was inspired by my sister-in-law who is always full of good ideas, and if she can keep one up with 3 kids, well I think maybe I can do alright with 2.

So here goes nothing! On this beautiful Sunday morning with Toy Story playing in the background (or dominating the whole house, as is the case in such a small house) I am dreaming of the summer to come. The sun is out, the weather man said it was going to hit 70 today (and we know they never lie) and I wish I could be out planting my garden. But instead I sit here on the couch waiting for this movie to get over so I can gather the family and head out to the arboretum for a nice long walk. Maybe this walk will be the one that sends me into labor. I am done being pregnant. That's it, I've hit the mark and ready to meet Natalie. I have scoured the Internet for all the natural labor inducing wives tales. So we had eggplant Parmesan for the last two nights. I've been eating fresh pineapple like it's going out of style (great for the heartburn, let me tell you). I started taking evening primrose and I've been walking, and walking and going up and down stairs and walking some more. Then there is the visualization, at this point I'm up for anything!

And yet I am still pregnant. Any suggestions?? (yes I know, "just wait, it will happen when she's ready")

Well I hope all is well with everyone. I hope everyone goes outside to enjoy this beautiful weather today, and I hope hope HOPE that today is the day I go into labor.

Aiden said Sunday or Monday, and we all know he knows what he's talking about, right?


  1. Hey there, what's that on your stomach? Ha. I hope Natalie comes out today like Aiden says.
    You can check out my blog at
    Haven't been real good about posting lately with the nausea but I'm trying to get better again. Looking forward to reading more blog!

  2. Hi! I hope today is the day too! I can't wait to see little Natalie! I am so glad that I inspired you to do a blog too! At least I think that was me you were talking about!
    It is nice here today, but 70 is completely out of the question! And sorry to say, I have no advice for labor induction... I ate a lot of pineapple with Colton and he came 2 days early, so hopefully it will work for you!
    Noah is doing tummy time right now, and he HATES it!

  3. Thanks for visiting ladies. Yes Brooke I was talking about you, what other sister in law do I have with 3 kids?? (no one else is that crazy) ;). I think I might borrow your 10 things I love right now bit too, as I really like the idea behind it and what better way to feel better about a situation I have no control over?
