Whoever invented pink needs a wet finger in his ear

A few weeks ago Leta and I went shopping for new dresses, and I made sure to hold each one up to her in the store and ask, “Are you sure you will wear this one?” She was so enthusiastic in the store that I didn’t think we’d have any problems, but when we got [...]

Family recipe

Turns out if they stick to your dog, the noodles are done. Foolproof way to a bowl of good pasta. Be sure to de-hair before serving.

22 weeks

I know it’s no maniacal fairy princess, but come on. How fucking precious is this? Only thing that would make this photo more heartwarming was if a koala bear was giving birth to kittens on Leta’s head: I think maybe it’s because I’m on this side of the halfway point, but I’m finding it much [...]


I’ve decided with this baby to have a little more fun with the nursery and want to design the whole room around a playful wallpaper. I only plan to cover one wall so that the room does not feel claustrophobic, and these are the designs I’m considering: 1. Walldots by Fermliving 2. Rosabella by Osborne [...]

Plum tree with frosting

Huge snowstorm this morning, and Jon was up before all of us cleaning the driveway and walks. I’m so lucky to be married to a man who voluntarily takes care of all that work. I think I will keep him around, at least until summer.

When we went in for an ultrasound a little over three weeks ago the doctor determined that I had a low-lying placenta, meaning it had formed at the lower half of the uterus. Excuse me while I slip into technical pregnancy talk for a moment: this can potentially be a problem if it doesn’t eventually [...]

Number one on my list

I know of two different mothers who today called their daughters to ask if they had seen last night’s episode of 60 Minutes, what did they think of this band called Coldplay, and isn’t Chris Martin dreamy? My mother is out right now buying the first Coldplay album because she loved what Chris had to [...]

Dr. Seuss onesies

The cuteness of these is almost unbearable, although you could probably put a picture of a severed hand on a onesie and I’d still coo. Found these at Costco and had to settle for sets in sizes of 6M, 9M, and 12M as they didn’t have any in newborn or 3M sizes. I only wish [...]


So it looks like it snowed in the living room this morning, poor little stuffed tiger had it coming I guess. Like I said, Coco had no idea these things had guts until Chuck came along and TAUGHT HER SO. Little evil turd.
