That’s the minimum amount of ounces I’ve pumped for my son since he was born. I would have an exact number, except my phone shit the bed a few weeks ago and Apple had to wipe it clean. If I had been on my game, I would’ve posted an entry on my exclusive pumping journey… Continue reading 16,283 Ounces—Give or Take a Few Hundred
Two years ago today, I woke up before my husband. The sun was peeking through the shades of the hotel window, hinting at another hot summer day in Washington, DC. Only a week or so before, we’d been in an awful and scary car accident that left our car totaled, my husband’s ribs broken, and my… Continue reading The BFP of 2014

I posted the… Continue reading #ThankfulFor 30-Day Challenge

I told him about the memorial wall for which my colleagues and I had… Continue reading Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day
