  1. For me, I put my personal history in two buckets: before baby and after baby. So much about my emotional life has changed, both good and bad. I’ve found patience, a respect for my physical and mental limitations, and a renewed feeling of intimacy with my partner. But I have also encountered the darkness of postpartum depression, the urge …

  2. BROUGHT TO YOU IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HEYMAMA and JONATHAN ADLER X FISHER PRICE IMAGES BY 2ND TRUTH When I was young and wide-eyed, I used to stare at pregnant women like they were from another world. How…HOW are our bodies capable of growing and stretching and oh, um…MAKING LIFE? When I got to my 20s, I found myself …

  3. File this in your “things no one tells you about motherhood” folder: being a “new mom” can feel a lot like being sixteen again. Especially if you were a late bloomer, like me. Sixteen brought me braces, break ups, awkward acne and ill-fitting clothing. Socially, I lagged behind my friends, dreading lunch, study hall, and anything that required me …

  5. It feels as if a lifetime has gone by since I sat down to write to you all. August is two months old and in the past week he has transitioned from a scrunchy-faced newborn to a bright-eyed baby boy! Everything changed after that first cry. My god! How sweet. Those emotions could move mountains. Happiness so pure I forgot …

  8. Our son, August Joseph Peters is here! Auggie arrived on 7/16/16 at 11:52am. He was 7lbs, 14oz and as sweet as can be. We’re two weeks into this transformative adventure and both Joe and myself are fully steeped in baby haze. Who knew you could be so tired and so full of joy at the same …

  9. The scariest part of any leap, whether it be from a cliff into the ocean or answering a phone call potentially bearing good or bad news, is the moment before you decide to make it. A push or running start is easier than a self-propelled leap. The longer you stand on the edge, the harder it …

  12. Two weekends ago, I found myself alone in the house for 48 hours. I had a clear calendar, a little bit of work to do, and no social obligations. After 18 days of straight work, alone time was exactly what this introvert needed. As Winnie and I slept in and spent the afternoon snuggling in the sun, …

  13. I am at a loss for how to start this blog post so I’ll just tell you that my current status is that of a 6.5 months pregnant person. A walking, talking, waddling ball of hormones. Baby or burrito? This is no longer in question. I look decidedly ripe and am feeling all the feels. Joe …
