Two months in

Please forgive the 2 month blog hiatus, but I just had a baby. Enough said. ūüôā¬† Well, we are over 2 months into this baby thing and we are getting the hang of it! ¬†To be honest, I had a really hard time in the beginning but I am finding such joy in being a … Continue reading

Keaton’s Birth Story

Keaton’s Birth Story

The weekend of September 6-7, I just felt awful. ¬†Sure, I was 39 weeks pregnant and that’s to be expected, but I had several signs that labor was starting, including sporadic contractions and was just READY! I wanted the weekend to rest so I left work early that Friday and sweet coworkers prayed over me … Continue reading

Recent happenings and thoughts

Recent happenings and thoughts

Well here’s the biggest mish-mash of “life” ever, but this is just about how our real life is these days. Even though I have totally dropped the ball on keeping up with our Bumpdates page, I’m almost 37 weeks now and potentially just 3-4 weeks away from meeting our baby boy. ¬†It’s all flown by … Continue reading

When it rains it pours!

When it rains it pours!

…In a good way! We’ve been super busy lately, but with all good things! ¬†In a matter of about 9 days we had my sister fly in from LA, my best friends from Charleston drive up for a weekend, an ultrasound of baby Keaton at the Dr, a baby shower in Raleigh, and a week … Continue reading

Going back to work

Aaron and I are getting over a full week (or more like two) of being sick with a cold. ¬†I lost a full week of productivity and that’s super frustrating to me. ¬†I had to get ready for father’s day (with two dads), Aaron’s brother’s birthday, my dad’s birthday, friends coming in from South Carolina, … Continue reading

I just posted this pic to my Bumpdates page – 24 weeks along! ¬†Looking a whole lot less like Princess Kate and a lot more like Jessica Simpson and Kim Kardashian, but at least it’s just for a few more months. ¬†And, while we were at the beach this past weekend with friends, a lady … Continue reading

Boring, but productive

Boring, but productive

I keep telling people that the Gouldings are pretty darn boring lately. ¬†And we truly are – but I am loving this season right now. ¬†We have much craziness to come and much to look forward to in the coming months and year so while we are pretty boring, it’s been so good to rest … Continue reading

5 Updates

5 Updates

Just ¬†a few little updates on our lives… 1. We painted the nursery! ¬†Well, when I say “we” I mean Aaron. ¬†My pregnant self isn’t allowed to paint. ¬†But, we were able to get a good low voc, non-toxic paint from Lowes that didn’t smell up the house at all, so I was able to … Continue reading

It’s a BLUE 16 Week update

It’s a BLUE 16 Week update

Just an fyi – I started a “bumpdates” tab at the top of the blog to record all of my bump pictures in one place. ¬†It’s cool to see how my belly has progressed already. (ps. Why am I SO much bigger than every other 16 week pregnant lady on the planet??) And here’s me … Continue reading

A little switcharoo

A little switcharoo

When we moved into this house almost 3 years ago, I tried to be super practical. I tried to anticipate our needs over the next couple of years so I instructed Aaron to put furniture in rooms that made the most sense. What I didn’t anticipate was me changing my mind. More specifically, I changed … Continue reading
