Today our baby is 26 weeks along, the size of a scallion, at about 14 inches. S/he weighs about 2 3/4 pounds. For size comparison, I put the bunch of scallions up to the Charlie Brown Bobblehead we got at the San Francisco Giants game this weekend.

July Bluum Box Overview and Itzy Ritzy Teething Happens Chewable Mom Necklace Product Review 

I received the July Bluum Box and inside three items had pink as a color in them and the fourth item and wrapping was a red shade. The presentation of the box was just beautiful and one of my first thoughts opening this was how two items inside were similar to items that had been on my Amazon baby  gift registry – the chewable teething necklace and the nursing scarf.

Kari’s Birthday and Surprise Engagement – Throw Back Thursday 

A little over a year ago on August 6th, Matt and I were invited to our friend, Kari’s birthday party by her boyfriend, Michael. Everyone was instructed to wear white, which most people did. Michael had asked for some volunteers for a special birthday surprise for Kari and I volunteered. I had an idea what the special surprise was and I was right, he proposed to her while the volunteers sent champagne into the air.

Meet and Greet with Dr. V, Pediatrician 

Matt and I really like my OB, Dr. G, so we wanted to find a pediatrician similar to him. Dr. G had supplied us with two names of doctors meeting this criteria with one slightly more recommended as he had been in practice longer. Last week I talked to the first doctor on the list, Dr. V, who was a great fit even over the phone. In just a few minutes I learned a lot about just how similar he and Dr. G were from having the same first name and training, to having similar views on many things to coincidentally buying homes in the same neighborhood. He invited us to come down near the end of the day on Monday where he would find 10-15 minutes to talk with us.
