Maternity + Family pictures 2021

This will possibly come as a shocker but we have never had professional family pictures taken before. My mom was our Christmas card photog back home and I do everything else so this was quite the experience! Aunt Cindy gifted us this session with the lovely Rifka of Rifka Jensen Photography.

Anyone else struggling for sleep these days? Granted I have a very good excuse as to why my zzzz's haven't been their best and that is all due to being seven months pregnant. That dreaded third trimester sleep slump is upon me.

One of my most favorite specialty shops for maternity clothing is Pinkblush. The first time I discovered this online boutique was back in 2013. I wasn't pregnant at the time but I vowed to return when I was.

Infused vinegar DIY cleaner

I've been really getting into spring cleaning lately. It's probably a combo of nesting + feeling invigorated by all the sunshine (vitamin D is truly a marvel).

Four Month Bumpdate {Baby #4}

I honestly thought I would never be writing another bumpdate post so this just make me so happy!

How far along: Second Trimester :: Weeks 13-16
Size of baby: Avocado
Weight gain: 153 // 5 pounds.
Maternity clothes: I had to start over on the maternity clothes front. I had given my Clark-pregnancy clothes to Dana and saved only a few dresses. Thankfully, Dana sent me some great Blanqi leggings and I bought a few secondhand items.
Gender: We're announcing this week!
Movement: YES! I'm not sure if it is a combination of an active baby and this being my fourth pregnancy but I have felt movement very early on. Baby is most active in the evenings. I'm not sure what is jabbing me, but it is comforting to feel those movements.
Sleep: I haven't felt comfortable in bed for awhile. Once I'm not able to stomach sleep, all bets are off.
What I miss: Feeling comfortable in my clothes. Its too soon for full blown maternity clothes but my regular jeans and leggings dig into the belly. Add in bloating and its a regular party over here.
Cravings: Fruit smoothies. Cucumber, tomato, onion salad. Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.
Symptoms: Extreme fatigue.
Highlight of the Month: I went to my first ultrasound at 13 weeks which turned out to actually be 14 weeks of pregnancy! Talk about a pleasant surprise.

Word of the Year 2021

Word of the Year 2021 on Work it Mommy blog
It took me extra long to think of my Word of the Year for 2021. There was just so much to process and digest from last year that sorting through all of it was more work than in previous years (and I know you get exactly what I mean by that.)

A Year in Review + Top 5 Posts of 2020


This year has been something else. We all lived it and we all have our stories to share. I was not the best blogger this year as it just felt like a chore to add-on to already long days. Brian and I both lost family members. Emotions have been everywhere and nowhere. I come back to this space because it is mine and finding solace in its digital pages feels right, right now.
