In the first post about Baby Quinn’s arrival, I told you all about her actual birth. I had not gone into labor naturally, so this was really an exciting event! There’s another reason I’m sharing this story with you though. Baby Quinn couldn’t keep her sugar level up after birth, and it got to the… Read More Baby Quinn is Here – Part 2!
It’s been a while since my last post and while I don’t have an excuse for the month of February, March has been busy! I was supposed to have an appointment March 7th (my birthday!) and I would have been 39.2 weeks. At that appointment the doctors were going to set my induction date. I… Read More Baby Quinn is Here!

(I know what you’re saying – “Get real Kate – a healthy substitute for the deliciousness that is potato… Read More Chip Substitute
I’ve been on this journey for what, 4.5 months? September, October, November, December and now January. I thought I ate healthy – but I was totally mistaken on my portion sizes.
