• FREE Birth Affirmations Printable

    One item on my pre-baby to-do list with baby #2 was to search out a handful (or a dozen) birth affirmations that will encourage me during birth. So I did a bit of research, sifted through dozens of affirmations, and finally I designed this fun (and free) Birth Affirmations Printable for all of you! Birth affirmations or mantras can be… [Continue Reading]

  • 33 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

    Next month is baby month! That can’t be right, can it? Seven weeks left. The countdown is on. I’ve been a lot more tired and achy this week than in previous weeks, but I think that is due to the fact that we just moved! This past week has been packed (pun intended) with boxing up all our belongings, scrubbing… [Continue Reading]

  • 32 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

    32 weeks down. 8-10 to go! It is CRAZY to me that we are mere days away from July, and I’ll be able to say that next month is baby month! I feel like the further along in pregnancy you get, the more surreal everything becomes. The first trimester lasts a million years (because you feel so gross), the second… [Continue Reading]

  • My Pre-Baby To Do List with Baby #2

    Exactly two years ago this week, I posted my pre-baby to do list with baby #1! Since baby #1 and baby #2’s due dates are only six days apart, it has been fun (and a bit surreal) to compare both pregnancies every step of the way. This post may contain affiliate links. When I first found out I was pregnant,… [Continue Reading]

  • We’re Moving into a 750 Sq Ft House And I Couldn’t Be Happier

    We started searching for a two-bedroom apartment, duplex or house back in February. The rental market is insane in our tiny college town: there are two dozen people competing for every rental at any given time. The local Facebook group that lists all the current rentals is filled with dozens of anxious posts from people looking to move, with no… [Continue Reading]

26 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Twenty-six weeks along! Lately, I’ve been feeling huge! I had to dig up pictures from my 26 Week Bumpdate with Baby #1 to compare, because it just feels like I am way bigger this time around, but I don’t think I really am. Honestly, more than anything, I feel a bit bewildered that I am this far along. The first…

24 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

For half a second, I thought I was twenty-five weeks pregnant this week. I had to look up last week’s bumpdate in order to figure out what week I was. That’s just a second pregnancy for ya. 😉 I am 24 (not 25) weeks pregnant this week! This is a big week for baby #2 (affectionately known as Two-ey), because…

23 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Spring has unfurled slowly this year, leaf by leaf. It has been such a beautiful experience, with both of my pregnancies, that the day I started feeling better physically directly corresponded with the arrival of spring. I have always been sickest in my first trimester, which then turns into dreadful headaches and continued food aversions at the beginning of my…

22 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Time for another bumpdate! This has been the easiest week so far in pregnancy-land! We learned a lot of good news last week at our anatomy scan, and this week my symptoms have been at an all time low, food has started tasting better (just in time for Easter) and Gideon and I have been getting out every day to…

21 Week Bumpdate for Baby #2 + New Ultrasound Pics!

21 Week Bumpdate! We just got back from our 20-week ultrasound, and I have to say that I have never had a happier prenatal appointment!! My first pregnancy was high-risk: at Gideon’s 22-week ultrasound we first found out that I had a condition called placenta previa that eventually resulted in an unwanted (yet medically necessary) caesarian birth. Throughout my first…

In Which the Stroller Mom Returns to the Internet

Well hey–howdy-doo! It has been a hot minute since I’ve written an update. Remember when I closed down Dandelion Pie, and launched the Stroller Mom back in September? How I was full of promises of lots of posts, and launching an Etsy shop? How I was brimming with ideas and enthusiasm? And then remember how I dropped off the face…

19-20 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Will Gideon be in every bump date? Most likely. I mean, he was in all the original bump dates, now wasn’t he? 😉 The past two weeks have been a bit tough, and busy! For the past few weeks I’ve struggled on and off with migraines which then lead to decreased appetite and nausea. This week has been a lot…

18 Week Bumpdate with Baby #2

Hey sweet readers! Long time no see! The past six months have been so very busy: in-between sleep struggles with Gideon, working a lot of hours as a work-at-home-mama, the holidays, and my first trimester I just didn’t have it in me to fit in blogging as well. I have really missed my readers, sharing my stories, and chronicling all…

The Stroller Mom’s Autumn Bucket List + Free Printable

Autumn smells like cinnamon rolls, new pencils, and pumpkin pie. Fall is officially here. Time to clean up the garden, pull out the sweaters, and swap out the iced coffee for hot. This short season gets a bad rap sometimes. In Nebraska, we collectively mourn the end of summer, because we are dreading the return of ice, snow, and long…
