Asher’s Birth Story

Here is the story of our son Asher’s birth.   As my due date, January 23rd, crept closer and closer, I worked very hard to wrap my head around the idea of going overdue again. I figured that the more I prepared myself, the less bitter I would feel about it (as compared to my […]


Introducing Baby Confetti 2.0

The Confetti family is so happy to welcome Asher Isaac to our family.  After stewing long and hard about whether to induce, this little guy rendered the debate moot. He arrived without any intervention necessary, making his grand entrance on his due date, Friday, January 23rd, at 6:26 a.m.  He was 7 pounds 3 ounces and […]


If I Could Register Today, Part 2

Hi, Bee readers! I’m back again talking registry dreams.

Maintaining Memories: Baby Books and BEYOND

What’s In My Hospital Bag

When I showed up at the hospital for my induction for my first, I had 42 weeks to stew over what I should bring with me, and basically, my outlook was the opposite of “less is more.” I brought a huge suitcase, my own exercise ball, the boppy and my huge purse. I looked like […]
