Whether by choice or not, a lot of folks have been spending more time at home these days. And from what I can tell, it seems there’s a lot to love, and some things most folks could do without. For me, since making the decision to transition from working as a physician to becoming a […]
Micah Turns 3!
The young man who started it all hit another big milestone this week–he turned three-years-old! Birthdays are always a good opportunity for reflection, and looking back at where life has taken us since Micah’s birth—from medicine to mommying, from Illinois to North Carolina, from one to two kids—I can only thank God for it all. […]
Micah Broke His Leg!
All I heard was his blood-curdling scream. I sprinted out of the car, where I was resting, over to where DJ and my mom were standing. “What happened?!” I asked DJ as he held a very distressed Micah in his arms. “He’s fine,” DJ replied, in an attempt to keep everyone calm. […]
Micah was Sick on Thanksgiving!
Two weeks ago, I spoke about my excitement in being able to share with everyone again, and then I went silent one week later. So, I just wanted to take some time to update you on what’s been happening. Last week Sunday, Micah came down with his first cold 😢! As usual, I took […]
Our Anniversary Trip to Cabo!
For the past two weeks, I haven’t written and I apologize! Hubby and I were celebrating our anniversary, and it took some time to recover. That being said, I’m excited to tell you all about it! DJ and I recently came upon three years of marriage and nine years of being together. My sweet mama […]

I couldn’t feel […]
Cutting and Maintaining Curly Hair: Micah’s First Haircut
Micah’s big day was coming up! He was turning one, and at a week before his birthday, I still had lots of DIY crafts and decorations to make. In the midst of all the preparations however, I wanted to make sure he looked sharp for his party, so I discussed with my husband what our […]
Cool at the Pool
Last week, I experienced the pinnacle of my summer so far. The true highpoint. The zenith. The mountaintop! Before Micah was born, this was the moment I dreamed about. What was this moment you ask? Why, swimming lessons, of course! I know, I can be over-the-top sometimes. I’m not sure why, but this was one […]
He’s Not Eating and I’m Exhausted!
This past weekend, I hit a wall. There was no dramatic breakdown, I wasn’t curled up in a ball on the floor in tears, but I was drained. For the past week, Micah hasn’t been eating well because he’s teething. So much so, that he began to lose a few ounces in weight. In the […]
I’m Coming Home Baby
“Something’s not right with him,” I told my mom with a worried expression on my face. As I held my newborn baby in my arms, I knew all was not well. Micah was born around 4 am that morning, and I was in the Mother & Baby Unit recovering and getting to know this bundle […]
