Baby size Baby Mo is the size of a pear and is still 5 to 5.5 inches long but weighs a little more – around 5 ounces. Highs I got that 10-mile run in! It was questionably smart to do 10 miles the first time […]

16 Weeks

Now that I got my initial post out, I’m more motivated to keep up with ongoings! Also, I found another woman’s blog over the weekend and reading her weekly updates was really helpful to me. Maybe this will help someone else in the future? Baby […]

We’re having a baby!

Hooray! Baby Morrison will be joining us in October of this year, and we couldn’t be more excited! I’ve been gathering info for this post but putting off writing it. Everyone keeps telling me how quickly the time will pass, and even if it feels […]

Halfway through 2018
