Things the Littles Say....

Showing off his "Adventures of Jake" book series he authored
Happy Fridayyy!

You know what that means....I'm done with nights until I'm a chief!!!

I haven't done a post on the hilarious and cute things the kids have been doing, so here we go...

Nate -

Still calls a blanket a "blanquet". He was trying to calm Isabelle down on the way home in the middle of a tantrum when she thought we left her favorite blanket at school...
"It's ok Isabelle, when you get home I'll find your blanquet. How would you like it if someone took your blanquet by accident?"

Randomly, on the way home from school... "Mom, who was your first boyfriend before dad..." -_-

His favorite spot to eat is "Chic-fa-lay"

While I was on nights, the hubs put the kids in bed a little earlier. It was like 7:40 and their bedtime was 8:30...
Little Nate: "Isn't 7 smaller than 8? Does the clock go up or down? Our bedtime is 8:30 and it's 7:40..."
You want your kids to learn things like telling time, but I mean....

Her hair!! 

Yesterday was the end of the year poetry presentation at his school. He didn't tell us that he was presenting a poem about his sister. It was so sweet.

Isabelle -

Her favorite place to eat is "Chik-Delay"

When I came to the Mother's Day tea and surprised her at daycare, "Mommy, you scared me!" (she means surprised)

"Mommy, you're my best friend!"

"Mommy, do I make you so happy?" Usually this happens after she uses the potty. Yay Izza!

My sweet girl
Me: Isabelle, do not open the door for strangers.
Isabelle: (crying) Why, I not open the door?!
Me: Because it could be a bad guy...
Isabelle: (serious) I open the door and I get my sword?

She's becoming quite the fashionista:
"I like your hair."
"I like your shirt."
"I like your glasses."

EVERY night before bed: "Can I have a kiss and a hug and a butterfly kiss and a nuzzle nose?"

"I want mommy to give me a kiss and a hug and a butterfly kiss and a nuzzle nose when she is done with the work. When she is done helping the people..."

"A Mother's Intuition": The Transition from Womanhood to Motherhood

Hey Friends!

The wife of one of my closest friends from college is creating an awesome film about the experience of becoming a mother from the perspective of women from all walks of life. The project is amazing and its goal is to empower women everywhere. I know that it will be a treasure to inspire more dialog about one of the most beautiful, yet terrifying, experiences - new motherhood.

Below you can read about how Elena - the creator - describes AMI Stories:
A Mother’s Intuition (AMI Stories) is a collection of interviews of women with a variety of different experiences, telling stories of mental, spiritual and emotional growth during pregnancy. AMI Stories believes that confidence is gained not when someone suppressed anxiety, doubt, or challenge, but when one is able to use these experiences to actually strengthen their belief in themself and their world. These oral histories of how women grow through the journey of pregnancy and childbirth will be available online and used as community education and discussion tools, in organizations such as women’s centers and pregnancy groups.
Doesn't that sound wonderful?! I WISH I had something like this when I was pregnant with little Nate....

Below is the trailer for the film and a link to her kickstarter campaign. I normally don't post about crowdfunding, but I totally believe in this project. So please support and pass the trailer along to those you know may be interested. No pledge is too small!

Weekend Recap

Hey folks!

Hope your week has been off to a great start. I am in week three of nights. One more week and I have no more nights rotations until I am a chief resident... Crazy, right?!?!

Anyway, the silver lining in this crazy month of nights is that I have gotten my Fridays and Saturdays off, and this weekend was great. Friday, little Nate did not have power at school so he got to stay home and hang out with me. That afternoon, I was able to get my hair done and then we picked up baby sis from daycare. The rest of the evening was super chill, and we had take-out Mexican dinner outside in the back yard. 

Saturday, our neighborhood had it's annual Spring Fling and we enjoyed hanging out at the clubhouse and hitting the community pool for the first time this season! Isabelle is such a little fish. It's so funny because she tells her dad to "let go" of her when he is supervising her in the pool haha 

Peep that peace sign while she swims... I can't with her 

After a quick change we headed to find flowers for my new planters I got for Mother's Day. We ended up picking lilies and rose bushes for the front yard too. 

We ended our night with dinner at our favorite Hibachi spot and snow cones for dessert! The weather had cooled off perfectly for planting all our new greenery before we headed in for the fun!

I guess I am an official adult now, because planting flowers was my Saturday turn shame. 

I love summer!!!!

Night Life Check-In....

Hey Peeps!

I've made it through three of my five nights for this week. Aside from missing the hubs and my littles like crazy, things have been going well. My first nights rotation was pretty early into my second year, and I feel a lot less anxiety this time around. To say I am a lot more comfortable with gynecology would be an understatement. I also have another great team, so that always makes coming into work a little easier.

Now that I have been through all the GYN subspecialities and gotten a TON of practice with transvaginal ultrasound, I feel like I am more efficient coming up with differential diagnoses for consults, more comfortable identifying gynecological emergencies, and the oncology service, though daunting at times, continues to push me out of my comfort zone and is definitely making me a better doctor.

The hardest part of this rotation is that my fam and I are like ships passing in the night, and I miss them so. I've tried to stay connected through the kids, by leaving them a note to find when they get home or treats from the hospital Starbucks...haha

Hope you all are having a good week. We are almost there!
