Pregnancy and baby ramblings

One time I loved running, and blogged about it all the time. Then I decided to get knocked up and blogged about that instead, with the goal of not being a whiny jerk like most pregnant bloggers.

Dalton was born on September 23, 2014. If you like birth stories (especially long ones), here's his!

Then I got knocked up again! Royce was born on May 6, 2016. Here's his (slightly shorter) birth story.

Now have two kids. Maybe someday I'll run again. For now, here's some mommy posts. I didn't do weekly "bumpdates" (hate that word) but occasionally (and then frequently) I posted about my experience of being pregnant. (Edited to add - wow I posted a lot more than I realized! And now I'm back at work with no time to do anything and not enough time to stare at my kids, the worst.) I included how far along I was for some posts, because I like knowing that in my blog reading.
