A Shock to the Heart

October 3rd, 2009 · 14 Comments

Riddle: What is harder than taking care of a baby after having major surgery? This will be my last pregnancy update. I was 36 weeks pregnant on Saturday, September 26, 2009.  40 weeks is the “due date” and 37 weeks is considered “full term.”  But 36 weeks is considered safe and close enough to full […]

Family Update: 31 Weeks

August 22nd, 2009 · No Comments

Yes yes I’ve been a terrible updater recently.  My last update was at 19 weeks, almost 3 months ago.  But it’s been a terrible 3 months.  Everything’s going well with the pregnancy, I’ve just been knocked flat by it.  Constant need for naps, unable to get out of bed at times, fatigue so bad I […]

Family Update at 14 Weeks

April 28th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Well, I hit my 2nd trimester a little over a week ago.  I’m now 14 1/2 weeks along.  The pregnancy sickness is still with me but the worst of it is *knock wood* over.  I still get stomach pain as my primary gut issue.  I’ve also been eating like crazy, lots and lots of very […]

Miriam’s Photography

December 20th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Miriam has always been more of a director than an actor.  Since she was old enough to hold a camera, she would grab one at any opportunity.  A child’s digital camera is a promised present (anyone know of one that is kid proof, has a display screen, and is under $30?) but, until then, she […]

Halloween 2008: Look! up in the sky! it’s…SUPERMAN!!

November 3rd, 2008 · 1 Comment

This year, Miriam (age 3.5 years) wanted to be a superhero for Halloween.  Her first choice was Superman, and she was quite clear that she meant Superman, not Supergirl.  Being 3 though, she had a lot of back and forth.  At times Supergirl was okay and so were Spiderman, Batman, or anyone from the Justice […]

Our Little Foodie

March 3rd, 2008 · 2 Comments

So, Miriam and I are at Whole Foods shopping for supplies for her birthday party (3 years old!) and we stopped at a display with cut and wrapped pieces of watermelon, one of her favorite fruits. I asked her if she wanted some for her birthday party. She turned to me and asked: “Is it […]

Miriam’s Birthday Present

February 17th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I don’t know who was more excited: the birthday girl or her mom. Miriam is turning 3 on February 26th and I wanted to get her something special. She’s been planning her birthday party for nearly a year now and, whenever we ask her what she wants (either for the party itself or for her […]

Miriam’s New Bed – Part II

February 10th, 2008 · 2 Comments

This is a follow up to Part I from Dec, 2007. We got this bed frame for free from Freecycle and it was a mess. Massive scrubbing ensued. Then we varnished, but the coat done in the late afternoon bubbled due to the cold. It took nearly two months before we had a warm sunny […]

Miriam’s First Written Word

January 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment

At two years and ten months (she’ll tell you her age upon request), Miriam knows pretty much all her letters but isn’t actually reading or writing yet. She can’t sound anything out. The one word she knows though is “off” (“O F F spells ‘off’!”). Because it’s a button on our phone. She can on […]

Miriam’s New Bed

December 18th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Written Dec 12: I got a wooden bed frame with drawers from Freecycle December 9 to use for Miriam. It is quite old and solid wood with some plywood. It was pretty filthy, since it was sitting in a walled-in porch for years. I spent a couple hours yesterday scrubbing it all down. When it […]
