My Choice to be a Stay-at-Home Mom

After giving birth to Hunter last summer I was home on maternity leave for a few months and did go back to work in the fall. Hunter went to daycare. Hunter was fine at daycare, but I was not fine at work. Sam did the hard job of dropping him off at daycare, but I still struggled emotionally knowing it wasn’t me feeding him, changing him, making him laugh, rocking him to sleep, comforting a cry, or watching him meet and master new milestones (the list goes on…). As a pediatric nurse practitioner, I had a good job. A career.…

Life

Wow! Life has definitely taken over for the past several months! Let’s do a quick recap shall we? Last time we left you I was pregnant with our sweet little boy (who is almost 10 months old now!). I have to say pregnancy agreed with me…up until 39 weeks. My family suffered a devastating tragedy when I was 39 weeks pregnant and my body seemed to only be able to process one thing at a time.

PacaPod Review

I am almost 37 weeks pregnant and finally considered to be in my 9th month of pregnancy! Pregnancy has actually been pretty good to me, but I do feel like I have been pregnant forever and I am anxiously waiting to meet our baby boy.

We are alive!

28 1/2 weeks pregnant and almost a full house remodel later we emerge from the dust (oh so much dust…ugh, construction zones!). This will just be a quick post getting the blogging juices flowing again. We have not forgot about this blog, but we almost literally have not sat down long enough to post. And Sam and I talk about it all the time “I want to blog” “Me too!”. However, I will say it has been/will be worth it. Every single room except for the kitchen has been painted and has or will be getting new floors within the…

Happy New Year!

Happy 2016!! I love the New Year. I love the motivation and excitement and promises of a fresh start it brings (Sam laughs at my boost of productivity every year, but I feel that even if it only lasts a day it is better than nothing! So far I am going a solid 3 days strong). This year will also be an exciting year for the Blooming to Booming household as in June we will be bringing a new addition home with us! We announced to our family and friends with our Christmas card (thank you Pinterest for adorable ideas…
