Kids’ Fall Fashion with Janie and Jack

Are you guys just as excited as I am for fall? Today, I woke up to it being in the low 70’s, and in Savannah, that’s pretty much as fall-ish as you can get for August.  If you don’t know, I am originally from upstate NY, and if you’ve never experienced fall in NY, you are…

Kingston goes to Pre-K

I can’t believe my little Kingston boy is in school now! When we first moved to Savannah, I had heard that the pre-k was all day, every day, and really just thought Kingston wasn’t ready for that. In my mind, he’s still this tiny little person that walked super late, didn’t potty train until he…

Alivia’s First Day of Kindergarten

Letterboard I can’t believe I have a kindergartener. It doesn’t quite seem like I’m old enough to have “school-aged” kids. I mean, yesterday I brought my first baby home from the hospital right? Sure feels like it! For awhile, Alivia wasn’t quite sure how she felt about going to school. The day I went into…

First to Come, First to Go

I’ll never forget the first moment you were placed in my arms. I thought, “She’s here. I did it. I’m a mother.” That first night in the hospital was grueling. You wouldn’t sleep unless you were laying on me, and, as a first time mom, I was so scared the nurses were going to come in…

This won’t last forever

We’ve heard it before, a million times… “This won’t last forever”, “This too shall pass”, “Enjoy it while it lasts”… UGH! I’m over it! I know it’s said with great intentions, and I know that there are so many mothers that are dying to have a baby. I know the pain of losing a baby…

That First Moment

I was recently watching a video put out by “Birth Becomes Her” for Mother’s Day. They were little snips of birth stories. Each scenario was different and unique. Some were home births, some water births, some hospital births, some c-sections. But despite the differences in each story, there was one common denominator. Each story was…

Welcome Maverick Anderson

The day was March 16, 2017. I was 39 weeks pregnant with a baby boy. I woke up on the couch and glanced at the clock. The time read 5:41am. I was going to be induced later that day. At 3:00pm I was going to be sitting in a hospital bed being administered medications that…
