Gracious Nola

August 5, 2010

Dear Nola, We believe you are going through your 3 month growth spurt, as your behavior has been a bit off as of late. However, this, combined with the fact that you just got your shots, is completely understandable. So, while I am a little sad that you were sleeping from about 8pm-6am with only […]

Mobile Nola

July 29, 2010

I take lots of pictures with my iPhone. Most go unshared. So here is a collage of all the pics that never make the cut to have a post of their own. Still all darling nonetheless.

Reachin’ for the Stars

July 29, 2010

Literally. Here is a short little video of Nola Grace in her swing. This is especially cute because she is starting to reach for things like her toys, mommy’s hair and burp cloths. Here, towards the end of the clip, she tries to get a star (or is it the lamb?) on her mobile. For […]

Box Mountain

July 22, 2010

Dearest friends…we are back…in Milwaukee that is…and living under Box Mountain. Or buried under boxes. However you want to put it. Well, I guess that’s not entirely true. We’ve been able to unpack a little, even though the movers didn’t.label.anything. As in, not one box told us “Hey, how you doin’… I go in the […]

Sleep and the City

June 27, 2010

Nola Grace is 6 weeks today and we are taking it easy. The weather is muggy beyond belief and our week was hectic (understatement), so some R&R is definitely in order. Amongst all the chaos, Nola has eased into sleeping longer at night and a habit of smiling. Both of which make mama and daddy […]

Baby Blue

June 12, 2010

Girls don’t have to wear pink all the time. Today on this rather grey, and sauna-like day, we’ve chosen a delightful sky-blue onesie for our Nola. She is almost 4 weeks already. 4 weeks! When she’s not sleeping on daddy’s chest…she likes to nurse, sit in her Boppy, talk to her mama and stare out […]

Nola Grace Quinn

May 24, 2010

Nola Grace Quinn was born early morning on Sunday, May 16th. We all have birthdays on the 16th. Me, Brian and now our Nola. At 9 lbs & 22 inches, she was a little bigger than the doctor originally predicted and had a little trouble coming into our world. 20 hours of labor included intense […]

It’s On the Books

May 12, 2010

I am being induced this weekend. After this weekend, we will have a baby. We will get to meet Raisin. It seems incredibly surreal – even though we’ve been anticipating this moment for almost 41 weeks. My doctor predicts now that we’ve called Raisin’s bluff and have scheduled the induction, she’ll decide to come out […]

Rain Rain Go Away

May 11, 2010

It is sooooo dark and rainy out today. Sort of fits my mood for wanting to sleep until Raisin gets here. As in, just hibernate until someone taps me on the shoulder and says “okay! it’s time!” Going to the doc in a bit to discuss game plan since I am now officially 3 days […]
