It's the most wonderful time of the year... a really crazy year. It's hard to believe that the holidays are here. The end of 2019 feels like yesterday and at the same time feels too good to have happened. The carefree life we all lived before this pandemic feels so out of reach, I'm struggling to grasp my mind around it. It's not that this state of the world will ever feel normal, but COVID has impacted so many parts of our lives that going back to the way things were seems unattainable. ... View Post
Hey Heath! Our second baby’s birth story.
He is here! A little over two weeks ago we welcomed our second son into the world, Heath Joseph Rosenberg. I announced my pregnancy not that long ago (here) and also shared the anxiety I felt being pregnant during a pandemic (here). This time around I was much more afraid of labor and delivery, partly because of COVID and partly because I was afraid of leaving Jude and something bad happening. When you experience the love of having a child, you know how much there is to lose. Thankfully ... View Post
PREGNANT IN A PANDEMIC: DEALING WITH ANXIETY, GUILT, AND WHY I WAITED TO ANNOUNCE
I only save the word "hate" for things I completely despise, like Donald Trump, chocolate, and a bad season of Real Housewives (I'm a passionate Bravoholic). So I think "hate" maybe a little strong here BUT... I really, really, really dislike being pregnant. It took a while for me to be comfortable saying that, especially as someone who experienced a miscarriage the first time they got pregnant. My heart breaks for those women who struggle with infertility and I try to be as sensitive as ... View Post
SURPRISE! We’re expecting baby #2!
G and I are thrilled to finally share this news... we're expecting baby #2! To say that 2020 has been a whirlwind is an understatement. And while there is so much craziness going on between the political climate and the pandemic, this little surprise has brought us so much joy amongst the sadness going on in the world. We're due late October, making me 31 weeks along. We announced our pregnancy with Jude when I was around 16 weeks - much earlier than this pregnancy. But being ... View Post
JUDE’S 18 Month Update: Our favorite toys, books, and more
Whoa, it's been a little bit since I've blogged. Between being a mom, trying to manage a job as an event planner during a pandemic, and oh yeah... just dealing with a pandemic, life has gotten pretty crazy. I plan to share a life update very soon, as well as getting back to a regular blogging schedule. I can't believe I'm sharing an 18-month update on Jude! It feels like just yesterday I shared my birthing story and the struggles of being a new mom. Every month I always say is my favorite ... View Post
REFLECTING ON MY FIRST YEAR OF MOTHERHOOD (AND JUDE’S 1ST BDAY)
The days are long but the years are short. It's absolutely wild to think that one year has flown by. Everyone says that when you have children, time is so fleeting, and it is so true. Time is a parent's greatest gift and biggest thief. You shut the door on so many tiny chapters that make up their childhood, only to open a million more that give you small glimpses at the person they're growing into. And while I honestly proclaim that every new milestone and month is my favorite, a part of me ... View Post
