24 weeks

by Chelsea Myers on August 31, 2012

The baby is almost a foot long and somewhere in the 1 – 1.5lb range, making this weeks fruit the Subway sandwich.  Actually, it’s the cantaloupe. [source] He’s getting longer but mostly heavier every week.  His organs are developing and his fat stores are filling in.  And he’s been moving around a lot this week.  Not just […]

I had fun looking at these pictures showing residence hall life at UW over the past 100 years. Here are some highlights: Dorm decor was much frillier back in 1908. And suspending twigs from the ceiling was the fashion at the time. No man on campus would be without a giant picture of MOM on […]

1. After an internal debate worthy of the high school forensics club, three trips to the parking permit office, and even more aborted efforts to log in/ register our car/ etc., we are now the owners of a UW parking pass.  You could fill the gas tank with Courvoisier for what we paid for that […]


[source] If there’s one thing that pregnancy prepares you for in early days of having a new baby, it’s the idea of getting up at night.  I don’t think I’ve slept through an entire night since I got pregnant.  Good nights involve only a trip or two to the bathroom.  Bad nights find me standing […]


I would spend at least part of it on really cute, really expensive baby clothes that would only be worn once or twice. Like this tiny sheep cap and mitten set: And little flannel PJs: This albatross sweater for sure: To be worn with trousers with knee patches while crawling around: And of course some […]

Apartment update

by Chelsea Myers on August 26, 2012

The move-in process is in full swing.  I’m at the point where I swear our stuff is secretly multiplying in the closets because every time we take another car load to the new apartment I think, “We have to be getting close to done,” but when we return there’s still so so so so so […]

Was the title way too much? Yesterday evening we joined the 2nd decade of the 21st century and bought an iPad2. Daniel got it all set up last night, and I played with it for a little while this morning.  I was proud of myself for figuring out how to open my e-mail, use Google […]


23 Weeks

by Chelsea Myers on August 24, 2012

Things have been changing a lot around here!  I was starving at the end of last week and the beginning of this one, and it seems to have paid off in a big growth spurt in the last few days.  This morning when I stepped on the scale I realized I’d hit three milestones: 1. […]


Happy Birthday to Me

by Chelsea Myers on August 23, 2012

It’s the big 3-0!  I actually thought today was going to be totally boring.  My only plans were to go to the gym and to work like normal and to move a few boxes of books to the new apartment and take out the trash there (nothing says responsibility like taking out someone else’s trash…).  But when […]


You can trust me

by Chelsea Myers on August 22, 2012

for another 28 hours.  Or is that a year and 28 hours?  Because I won’t be “over 30” until I’m 31, which will be next year.  In any case, this is my last day on earth as a 20-something, and – even though it feels like it was only two seconds ago- I thought it […]
