Baz // 2 Months

Dear Baz, You are now 67 days old. For the record, I did write a post when you were about a month old but somehow the draft did not save and for that I am extremely sad. This won’t be the first time I fail to do something I had every intention of doing. I’m … Continue reading

Sebastian’s Birth Story – Part Fin

Sebastian’s Birth Story – Part Fin

People talk about the overwhelming love they feel immediately after the baby is born. Others say it doesn’t hit them right away. For me the last month has been full of waves of emotions that are more pure than anything I’ve ever experienced. Euphoric happiness, can be followed by fear and then replaced with immense love. I keep having to remind myself that I’m a mom. I don’t think that will stop anytime soon. Sometimes I have no idea what I’m doing and other times I feel like this is something I was meant to do. Mostly I can’t believe that Sebastian Christopher is finally here. Continue reading

I don’t know how I feel about Marissa Mayer

I admit I’d never heard her name before Monday as I am not what some would call “in the tech sector.” Still I found out pretty quickly when Marissa Mayer was named Yahoo’s CEO. I read an article talking about her rise through Google and thought “hmmm, maybe she will help Yahoo turn a corner.” It wasn’t until the next day that I found out she was pregnant. I was informed of this fact by my boss. Continue reading
