Full Term

Uh… can you believe it? I am considered full term. Meaning, if this guy decides to show up, barring any physical problems, he could come home with us and would be considered a totally normal, full term baby. WOW! That milestone is 37 weeks for those of you playing the home game. We hit 37 weeks last Thursday and are actually on our way to 38 now. I can’t actually believe it. Both Dan and I have been in a crazy rush to finish things before this guy gets here. Dan is......

35/35

I can’t believe it! We made it to 35 weeks! This kiddo is nearly fully cooked. There is this funny milestone at 35 weeks. You are 35 weeks pregnant and have 35 days until your due date, so you are 35/35! All of these silly things that I am just so thrilled to be reaching. So where are we in our preparations? Well, we were taking it slow until a friend in our Jewish Baby University class delivered 6 weeks early… she was due the day after us!!!!! That put us in......

3/3/15

Today was a hectic day. Meeting after meeting. Project after project. Email after email. I cranked all day. But there was something that was never far from my mind today. Today, our little girl, our second baby, was due. I felt such hope about that pregnancy. Surely after our first loss, G-d would help us keep this baby. All the signs were there. We found out we were pregnant on Dan’s birthday. The baby was due on 3/3, one of the alternate dates we picked for our wedding. But also, if the baby......

I have to stop feeling guilty for not writing. I get so busy with life and neglect my blogs and then I feel guilty for not writing and then the cycle continues. However, in recent days I have been sending people to my blog for a multitude of reasons and it has amplified my guilt… So here’s an update. After our two heartbreaking miscarriages last year, I am pregnant again and this one is looking really good. Currently I am 23 weeks and 4 days pregnant with a little boy. He will......

Wedding Brain

You’ve heard of baby brain? Well I have wedding brain. I can’t remember anything. Not only can I not remember anything… I have the attention span of a gnat. Seriously. I start to work on something and then I start something else then I think of something else then something jumps into my mind then I do something then… Then I have 72 tabs open in Firefox, 18 different documents open, four different Adobe products open, I haven’t eaten lunch and it’s nearly 4pm. Now, this isn’t just wedding related… this is......

Auf Ruf?

If you happen to be in Denver, Dan and I hope you can join us on March 2nd at 9:30am at Rodef Shalom for our Auf Ruf. Auf Ruf? What the heck is an Auf Ruf, you ask? Well, every Saturday Jews read a section of the Torah during services.  The weekly parsha, or Torah portion, is scheduled on a cycle to ensure that the entire Torah is read out loud during the course of one year.When the Torah is read aloud in a synagogue, members of the congregation are called up......

Etsy Wins For Details

I have just found so much success on Etsy for details for our wedding. I wanted a wedding hanger for my dress… found it on Etsy. I liked the history behind the wedding dress label… found it on Etsy. Here’s that history: In the 20’s and 30’s, couture gown designers starting designing personalized labels for their clients, and attaching them inside the gowns. Now brides can use this special touch to make wedding gowns truly their own. When the tradition of labels for wedding gowns started, it was seen as the last......
