Tissue Paper Infant Sensory Activity

We tried a new activity yesterday and Geneva loved it. I swear she could have played with it all day, if it weren't for nap time. I saw this posted first on Instagram, and it's brilliant! All you need is aluminum foil or tissue paper and a chair or couch! Place the tissue paper or... Continue Reading →


An Easter Sensory Activity

I'm a little late to the game. Easter was this past weekend, and while we most definitely made our baby girl an Easter basket and took her to see the Easter Bunny... I didn't think of this activity until about Tuesday. Since I am terrible at remembering to vacuum, I generally lay down the baby... Continue Reading →

In the End of IVF

It's been almost a week since we got results. I've written this post several times and just haven't quite been able to make it feel right. It's been hard to write this post because I don't feel the things I anticipated that I would feel. I didn't want to write it in the heat of... Continue Reading →


The days leading up to transfer were crazy. There was a ton of back and forth on what the plan was and it was so frustrating not to know at all times what was going on with my embryos. Were they growing? How many were still left? The plan first changed right before retrieval, and... Continue Reading →
