Sincerely, Jenn

Dear 2019, What a year you have been. Prior to your beginning, I was nothing but excited to see where you would take me. Now, nearly half way over, I […]

One Day At A Time

After 12 days in the NICU, our little bug finally got to come home! In the grand scheme, 12 days doesn’t seem like much. Especially if you take into account […]

Torn In Two

I am constantly being swarmed with emotions. I don’t think anything can prepare a person, a mother, for the feelings and thoughts that occur when you have a baby in […]

A Day Of His Own (A Birth Story)

Where to even begin? This child has had his own game plan the entire time. Ever since my water broke at 29 weeks on March 19th, I had experienced multiple […]

Mental Health Journey

Sing Along

Another glorious snow day today. Actually, I have pretty much not left the house since Thursday when I went to work (because of the beautiful blizzard we had). I guess […]

What I Pack In My Hospital Bag For Birth
