Postpartum Care: A post where you will learn entirely too much about me because I think sharing our experiences matters

Thesis: Postpartum care in the US is an absolute joke. Supporting arguments: Postpartum in the US = the 6 week checkup. To be fair, I did have two at-home nurse visits after my cesarean. They weren't really for me, they were mainly for my son, but I did answer some stock questions for postpartum depressing … Continue reading Postpartum Care: A post where you will learn entirely too much about me because I think sharing our experiences matters

Happy 6 Month, Frederick C III!

I’m behind again but your 6 month celebration fell at the beginning of an amazing time in the UP so it felt right to postpone this post! It was your very first family reunion (held every three years) and it was well worth the wait! You were the perfect little traveler through car rides and … Continue reading Happy 6 Month, Frederick C III!

Happy 5 Month, Frederick C III!

Happy 1 Month, Frederick C III!

Baby Freddy, how are you 1 month old already? You are the sweetest little boy, content to sleep or silently take in your surroundings when your basic needs are met. In fact, your go-with-the-flow attitude had us fooled into thinking you were getting enough to eat when the scale proved otherwise! Let's get you back … Continue reading Happy 1 Month, Frederick C III!

Interview with Freddy Jr.

Freddy Jr. (aka "husband" / aka "dad") has been unanimously voted the family MVP today.
