Portrait of a Newborn

September 25, 2014

I still keep expecting to automatically be an expert on parenting now that this my fourth time around. Laughable, really, especially because I’ve made it a point not to identify with that word whatsoever, and in parenting there is no such thing. Every pregnancy was just as different as the children are. They may look […]

Celebrating Zoe

September 24, 2014

This post is brought to you by Target. Get More Cuuuute with Hello Kitty at Target. It’s really wild having two daughters. I still haven’t wrapped my head around it quite yet, but between me, Zoe, my mom and my sister-we are very, very excited! So much girl time to be had. That said, it’s been so […]

Theo and Beau Welcome Evangeline

September 24, 2014

I’ve been wanting to share with you the day that we brought Evvie home, but it’s been a little raw for me up until recently. That day was so hectic, hardly the kind of serene and sweet “coming home” celebration we had hoped for, but it was lovely all the same. I didn’t get discharged […]

Pour la Victoire: Maternity and Beyond

September 19, 2014

About a month ago, I was closing in on my ninth month of pregnancy and going through a range of emotions because of it. I was physically and emotionally maxed out in just about every way; My back hurt, my legs cramped, I was generally low on energy and slow to get around. Not to […]

Finding Normal

September 16, 2014

Walking into the our athletic club to take the kids swimming yesterday, a woman passed us and remarked “Wow, four kids. That ain’t for the faint of heart.” Little did she know exactly how faint in the heart I’ve been feeling the last week. It’s funny how strangers can completely disarm you with one simple […]

Fighting for Firsts and a Shot at Life

August 29, 2014

The introduction to preschool has brought many firsts for our family. We found out rather last minute that we’d be moving across the country, so the spot on the waiting list at the preschool in the Bay Area that I had reserved for Jack was devastatingly relinquished. We moved to New York City the the […]

Jack started his second day of second grade today. It was a long and lovely, somewhat unstructured summer during which he appears to have grown about a foot. His hair went from brown to blonde from long days at the beach and afternoons playing basketball in the street with his buddies. He’s getting more complex […]

EveryDay Moments with Beau

August 28, 2014

My weeks with Beau in the morning are coming to a close. Pretty soon, he’ll be starting at a school of his very own, a play-based preschool just up the road from us. His days will be somewhat short, but he’s so incredibly excited to be a “big kid” just like his brother and sister […]

Staying on: Constantly Connected

August 25, 2014

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with my cell phone. I love that it basically helps or assists me in some way throughout every single day of my life, but I sort of hate the fact that there’s a bit of dependency for that reason, too. There are very few days or times […]

Momma Loves: A Big Week of Favorites

August 22, 2014

This has been a full week of total life immersion. I’ve been in and out of my OB’s office which means any and all preparation for baby and nesting like a crazy lady. While Baby Shyba’s due date isn’t until the 11th, things are looking and feeling like our new babe may just arrive early. […]
