This is a photo of two very rested parents after three nights away from their baby.
Clinging to the love from this weekend.
Early fall light is just the best.
Each night we read Birdie a page of ‘Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World.” So far, each story has told of how brilliant scientists have had to overcome overwhelming discrimination to share their ideas with the world. Few were taken seriously, most worked for free and every one of them were under recognized for their contributions in their time- simply because they were women. The optimist in me wants to tell my daughter that this was so long ago- we have come so far! And I truly do hope that there is truth in that somewhere. I’m struggling to cling to that optimism tonight, but grateful for the real-life women in science in our life for Birdie to look up to, and for this book to teach her the names of these women.
Oh sweet girl, I hope I remember what this feels like for the rest of my life.
Sunday stroll with my favorites.
Trash day in the suburbs.
Columbus Heart Walk this morning with our crew. Three miles, one dog, 11 adults, three strollers and five kids under 5.5. Repping team @ohiohealth.
I think she’s mine
We did it! One year!
Closing out the weekend with a picnic in the park. Feeling so very grateful for my true loves.
Epic naps make for good days.
So proud to share the first ever photograph my daughter shot. 📸
Date number four in the last 11 months with Dr. Taffany. Grateful for “kids night out,” hosted by our daycare. Wrapped up the evening at 8:30, naturally.
The new elevators at work have a lit back wall that is essentially a giant softbox. Naturally, I cannot pass up an opportunity for a gorgeously lit self portrait. 💡💡💡
Took my best girl on a date for dinner. Luckily, the meal we shared came with extra cheese 🧀🧀🧀
Shameless photos from one year (and one day) ago, at our friends’ wedding in West Palm Beach. Feeling nostalgic as we approach Birdie’s first birthday. I absolutely loved my pregnant body- and wish that I could carry the confidence I had then, always. #wayback #oneyearago #36weekspregnant
