MilkSense Personal Breastfeeding Monitor: My Initial Review

MilkSense Personal Breastfeeding Monitor: My Initial Review

Posted by: on Jan 16, 2015 | No Comments
As you may already know, I've had my struggles with breastfeeding. I've stressed, cried, and even made myself sick with anxiety over the process. The not knowing. The guessing. The seeming lack of control and frustration. That's why when I heard about MilkSense I immediately jumped at the opportunity to test it out to see if it really is the answer to all of my previously unanswered prayers. What is MilkSense? MilkSense is the world's first breastfeeding monitor. It is an aid for breastfeeding Read more [...]
An Ode to 2014

An Ode to 2014

Posted by: on Dec 31, 2014 | No Comments
Let me just start by saying "THANK YOU". Thank you 2014 for all of your wonderful ups and downs, ins and outs, and a few upside downs. As you might remember, your predecessor 2013 was much less than kind to me at times. I was so glad to welcome you a year ago, 2014, and you did not disappoint. We started the year with a few bumps- lots of sickness and such, but that's to be expected with a toddler running around. Then, I returned to the stage for the first time in 10+ years. It was thrilling Read more [...]
Baby Boy Kujo Has Arrived! (Part 1 of 2)

Baby Boy Kujo Has Arrived! (Part 1 of 2)

Posted by: on Oct 22, 2014 | 2 Comments
Well, here it is... Baby Boy Kujo's official blog birth announcement! I've been both eager and anxious to write this post for the past 2 weeks. On the one hand, I am so very excited to share our joy and love with the world. On the other hand, I've been on a rollercoaster of the highest emotional ups and downs since he was born 17 days ago. In the end, I think I will be writing two separate posts in order to work my way to the hard stuff, and to do justice to the joy we felt at welcoming our Read more [...]
Final Countdown to Baby

Final Countdown to Baby

Posted by: on Sep 22, 2014 | No Comments
The final countdown is on! 36 days (or less?!) until my little dude makes his entrance into the world). This mama has gone into full nesting mode (and so has Daddy by proxy due to mama's limited movement from SPD pain). Little miss is now sleeping in her big girl bed like a princess! (I can't believe she's going to be my "big one" soon- she's still so little!) She loves hugging and kissing my belly on a multiple-time-per-day basis. She sings to her brother and tells her she loves him and Read more [...]

Making Some “Me” Time a.k.a. Girl Time with Veronica

Posted by: on Jun 27, 2014 | No Comments
As I mentioned in my last post, things have been a little crazy in the Kujo household recently (to put it mildly). We're constantly running and doing and making and fixing and and and and and... I do try to find some "me" time every day if I can- even if it's just for 15 minutes. [Note: this used to be my shower time, but lately I've been bringing Little Miss in there with me to save time and energy on bathing her separately.] With my softball season on hold due to pregnancy, I've made sure to Read more [...]
How to Survive a Second Pregnancy

How to Survive a Second Pregnancy

Posted by: on Jun 23, 2014 | No Comments
I'm sure it has not gone unnoticed that it's been pretty quiet 'round here lately. Let me assure you, that it has not gone unnoticed by me either! Suffice it to say: this second pregnancy is kicking my butt more than expected (and much differently than I would have anticipated). Working full-time takes a lot out of anybody. Working full-time with a toddler and a partner who is also employed full-time is even harder. Throw pregnancy in the mix, and I am absolutely shot. [Not to mention the Read more [...]

My Top 5 Pregnancy Resources

Posted by: on May 7, 2014 | No Comments
Being pregnant the second time around, I have found my way around many many many pregnancy resources (both online and off). Now that some of my friends are trying for or are pregnant with their first, I am getting all kinds of questions about the hows and then whens and the whats. I love being the helpful source of information for my lovely ladies in-real-life, so I thought I should share some of my favourite pregnancy resources with my online lovelies as well! 5) Fertility Friend I have to Read more [...]
Top 5 Insights from Early Pregnancy: The 2nd Time Around

Top 5 Insights from Early Pregnancy: The 2nd Time Around

Posted by: on Apr 8, 2014 | No Comments
Now that I can freely share, gripe, laugh, and talk about my pregnancy, I thought I would share some fun little tidbits I've (re)discovered so far this time around. 1. I POPPED: My body has remembered EXACTLY what it's supposed to do. As of a mere 5 weeks in, my hips had already shown signs of spreading- fun! As of 8 weeks, I was no longer able to comfortably wear my normal pants any longer- EVEN WITH A BELLY BAND, people. That's right. I am now just shy of 11 weeks, and somehow my belly Read more [...]
