A note from Lucy

Hey fellow readers,
Lucy here. It's been awhile since you've heard from me what with all this "Olivia" business. I still have no idea who she is save for a pink hat that sits by mom's side of the bed and this room with crazy cows and owls in it. {not really a cohesive theme Mom + Dad but nobody asked for my opinion} Anyhoo, I spent a long week in the country with my grandparents and I was certain Mom + Dad went on another wackadoo trip but this was not the case. Admittedly, I gave them the cold shoulder when I returned. I mean, love is a two way street, right? I think they feel bad though so I've decided to drop the 'tude and go back to fetching bone for them.

Mom looks different. Her stomach doesn't have a heartbeat anymore. Not sure what was going on there but I am relieved because she was looking mighty puffy these last two weeks. I didn't want to tell her because she's so sensitive but it wasn't a good look for her. Plus she was so slow when we went up and down the stairs. I found it to be really annoying.

Dad looks kinda tired but he always still gets down on the floor with me to play at night. He seemed reallllly excited to see me the other day. He's such a sucker. I always get extra treats from him.

I guess there's about to be some changes going on in these parts. I can smell it. I am not concerned though. I am a go-with-the-flow kinda dog and who cares when the sun is shining and I get to go on more walks. Truthfully, I've got some winter lbs. to work off.

That's the word on the street.

Parental supervision advised

Ok, perhaps a little graphic but this is one of the funnier Conan interviews I've watched. And it's true, the part about Thai woman...they have some crazy powers over there. Yikes! I cannot WAIT to see this movie.

Can a skirt be juicy?

Orange used to be my favorite color in college. Then I turned to pink. Now, I'm am 33 and back to orange. It's just so good...and this image is sick. Can skirts be juicy?

Guest blogger: Miranda of 101 Things To Do Before You Die

I always was a fan of Johanna’s blog and the amazing finds and lovelies she posts, but I knew we were going to be great blog friends when I found out we had similar music tastes. I mean anyone who has a post titled ‘Tweedy Friday’ is aces in my book.

So while Johanna is busy imparting her great musical taste to Ms. Olivia, I thought I’d come up with a great playlist to listen to on the beach, in the car, on vacation, or wherever you may be spending your time this summer.

1. You are a Tourist – Death Cab for Cutie
The obvious choice of a Death Cab summer song would be “Summer Skin”, but this song is so great I can’t stop playing it on repeat.

2. The Wavves – King of the Beach
As someone who gets a sunburn just by thinking of the sun, I still kind of want to “let the sun burn my eyes, let it burn my back”.

3. California Sun – The Ramones
Two minutes and eight seconds of pure summer fun.

4. Summer – Modest Mouse
Contains one of my favorite lyrics of all time: ‘Just the smell of the summer can make me fall in love”.

5. Big Wave – Pearl Jam
I am a horrible klutz and believe if I tried to surf I would probably die. However, listening to this song makes me want to take the risk.

6. Summer Teeth – Wilco
I couldn’t create a summer playlist for Johanna without including some Wilco or Tweedy. It helps that I love this song!

7. In the Sun – Joseph Arthur and In the Sun – She & Him
These two songs could not be more different, despite sharing the same name. Luckily they’re both amazing.

8. Fireflies in a Steel Mill – The Elected
While spending my childhood summers in Illinois, I spent a lot of time catching and chasing these lovelies.

9. I Was Made For Sunny Days – The Weepies
As much as I love my rain apparel, I agree wholeheartedly with The Weepies. I was totally made for sunny days.

10. On the Beach – Neil Young (or Radiohead)
I’m a sucker for a good cover. And Radiohead does such amazing cover of this Neil Young song. I can’t be forced to pick my favorite.

What are you perfect summer songs? I'd love to know the ones I missed!

Thanks Johanna for letting my share my summer playlist for you and can't wait to see what you and Olivia have in store for your first summer together.

Birthday cake

Today is my birthday. A big 33. I can't think of anything material I have to have. Really, a nice dinner and a magnificent cake such as the above would be just divine. How amazing is that frosting?

I keep teasing my husband that we should just tuck Olivia away in our pockets and head out for the birthday dinner...I guess that's against the rules. Cheers!

New kids on the color-block!


Not to sound weird and beat a dead horse on this whole early-baby-delivery-thing... BUT is it wrong to admit that I am pretty stoked to start wearing non-maternity clothes two months earlier than expected? I know that sounds vain but I am...I'm really excited! And I know that everyone is on the color block train but these picks are too good to ignore. Which one is your favorite?

Little Olivia surprised us all by arriving early, just like it seems summer does each year. While the calendar says it's spring, brightly colored wedges and sweet sundresses scream summertime to me-and what better way to celebrate an early arrival than with a watermelon basil mojito? Johanna, we're toasting you and your beautiful baby girl today!

The first summer I brought John along to my parents' house, he introduced a cocktail hour (or three or four). My parents have a beautiful garden overrun with fresh mint, and my mom cleverly suggested we make a batch of mojitos with the dual purpose of weeding her garden and entertaining her dinner guests! Soon we were trying different flavor combinations every night, and while it's hard to replace a classic, I was smitten with this slightly sweeter version!

Watermelon-Basil Mojito
  • seedless watermelon, cut in chunks
  • 8-10 basil leaves
  • 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 3/4 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 1/2 oz aged rum
Place watermelon and basil leaves at the bottom of a cocktail shaker and muddle. Add simple syrup, lime juice, rum and ice; shake for 5-10 seconds. Strain into a tall glass with ice, and garnish with a slice of watermelon or basil.

Notes: Barbancourt 8 year Rhum is one of my favorites-not too sweet, this aged liquor will impart some mellow flavor to your mojito!

A toast to Friday!

Hi chickadees! Another week under our belts...feels good, eh? Speaking of good, Olivia is gaining more weight and has all but a tube for feeding left...little triumphs over here and she is a whopping 12 days old. Every time we finish  up another week it gets me excited because we are that much closer to bringing her home. And in other news, turns out we will sorta kinda celebrate my otherwise boring birthday this weekend. {it falls on Monday and if that's not the epitome of boring, I don't know what is} It's funny because I really could care less but some champagne does sound lovely. Now if we could just get this weather to cooperate! Have yourselves a great weekend and thank you for all your sweet comments this week. I've relayed them all to Olivia...she gave you a virtual Hi-5!

Litany of Love

  1. Holy Toledo...gf of mine found this and I adore.

Guest blogger: Meagan of Mo Pie, Please,

Hello everyone! This is Meagan from Mo Pie, Please, a blog about anything and everything I love.  I'm so flattered that Johanna asked me to guest post for her while she is enjoying her new role as mommy! Congrats, Johanna!

Today's post is all about summer trends - the things I am lusting after to sport all summer long.  This summer is going to be big for me.  My husband and I just bought a house in Louisville, KY, so we're up and leaving our Chicago life for one that's a little slower-paced and more family-oriented.  So the first half of my summer will be spent preparing for the move, while the second half will be spent unpacking and getting adjusted to our new lives.  Not to mention we have our first wedding anniversary at the beginning of August!  So while I may not be frolicking on a sandy beach, I can still prance around the town in cute dresses and sandals, right?

Here are some things my heart is after ::

I am loving bright colored dresses, color-blocked things and lots of floral prints!  I also can't seem to get enough of polka-dotted swimsuits, coral lipstick and the perfect denim shorts.  Bright and fun sandals always make for a good summer and that sun hat is my latest purchase!  My face will thank me, plus it's the only hat that I've tried on that flatters my head/face/body!  Score!

What are some of your favorite summer fashion trends?  I'd love to hear!

Thanks again, Johanna!

O's pad...

Now that Miss O has graced us with her presence, we are on a mad scramble to complete her "crib"...get it?! {I kill myself!} You might remember these mood boards that kicked off the whole process. Here are some before and after's of her evolving nursery. I'm really loving the way it's turning out with neutrals and pops of orange. Kinda like this Spring's fashion! I tell ya...this girl has an eye already!

She's received some great gifts, too. Each one offers a little extra loving touch.
O's Aunt made her this awesome owl pillow. We like to keep on theme around here. And let it be known that O's Aunt is ridiculously talented with the sewing machine. Don't you think she should open an Etsy store? Just awesome!

And...our rubber cow. Totally an unexpected, original gift by our friends. I think it's hilarious. I can just picture her sitting on top of it one day. Ride 'em cowgirl!

Stay tuned for the finished product in two weeks!

Welcome to the world, Olivia!

Thursday, 5.5.11
I woke up at 4:15am feeling like something was off. In fact, the entire week I was maintaining a steady cocktail of migraines and swelling. To me, it just seemed like typical pregnancy symptoms - third trimester woes if you will. I decided to throw some clothes on and drive to Jewel for Tylenol since I was out and had meetings on the books for work. Fast forward to 7:30am, husband leaves for work and we agree to meet for my biweekly doc appointment. We were both concerned about all my aches and pains and my edema was out of control for only being 31 weeks.

We check in at the front desk and I do my routine urine sample. Within minutes we are escorted to our room to see the doc. Doc enters the room, takes one look at my legs and calmly asks where our car is parked. I think it was a total of five minutes before she told us that we needed to go directly to Triage at the hospital, giving them a head's up of our arrival. I remember hearing the words "preeclampsia" and that there was protein in my urine and my blood pressure was through the roof. I knew what preeclampsia was but I didn't really know the severity of it let alone the effects it could have on my baby and me. I just figured we would go to Triage, they would regulate me with some oral meds and we'd move on in time for the shower festivities on Saturday. Simple enough.

Husband calls parents to alert them of our situation as well as my boss. We register and wait. I get called back to a room and told to put on a gown. Within minutes we are met by five different docs and nurses. I get an IV and meds to start lowering my blood pressure which at the time, just to give you some perspective, was 190/115. If you're anything like me...you always take good blood pressure for granted and since I NEVER had any pre-existing issues, I thought...I guess that seems high. A doctor comes in and starts discussing my "severe preeclampsia" condition which they refer to as a disease. Wait...what? I have a disease? The baby continues to be happy as a clam in my belly but it appears I would be having this baby over the weekend. In fact, a nurse would be down in a few minutes to roll me up to Labor & Delivery. This is where I start crying. All I could think of was 1. what about my baby? 2. will she be ok? 3. is she ready to come out? 4. what's going to happen to my health? 5. what about my baby????

I am in Labor & Delivery and the anaesthesiologist comes in and introduces himself. We start discussing epidurals. Epidurals?! Following him, we meet the obstetrician and she begins to explain stereoids which help speed up lung development on the baby. They want a full 48 hours before they decide to induce me so that the stereoid goes into effect. They also start a magnesium drip to prevent me from going into seizures from my high blood pressure. Yeah, exactly - seizures. Hours pass, more doctors and nurses visit and it becomes evident we are in for the weekend and that simple bed rest is not going to be the solution to today's issue. In fact, the only cure for preeclampsia is to literally have the baby. We are tired, overwhelmed, emotionally drained and I feel like garbage. Husband sleeps on a pull out bed in my room and I am relegated to staying in bed. In fact, I am not even allowed to get up to use the rest room. I have nurses checking my vitals every hour on the hour and I learn the joys of bed pans. We pass out...sort of.

Friday, 5.6.11
Night blends into morning and our parents visit us. My dad awaits our crib arrival at our house {ironic} and the moms start to absorb the situation first hand from the slew of medical staff coming in and out. I kept thinking how unprepared I was for all of this. I don't even have a car seat! I am feeling awful as if I was on some sort of trippy ride from the magnesium and pretty much sleep on and off all day. I am literally swelling blowing up by the minute and my body and face become unrecognizable. My OB/GYN is the resident doc that day and she pays me a visit informing me that I would definitely be induced tomorrow. They can't regulate my blood pressure and it's dangerous. The moms toy with cancelling my baby shower and are weighing out options. It was later decided that the show would go on and they would greet our friends and family, serve a nice lunch and thank everyone for coming. Family leaves and we have another night of the same routine. Husband is calm but looks exhausted. I feel bad. I start to feel like I am losing my mojo. I wonder if I can really do this. And to boot, I can't take a shower. I feel disgusting.

Saturday, 5.7.11
Husband and I learn that baby girl is still thriving in the womb and we mentally prepare to be induced. Husband informs friends over email and we wait. Slowly our friends learn or show up at our shower and our phones start blowing up. People are surprised and concerned. The support is overwhelming and our spirits pick up because we know we get to meet baby girl soon and we also know that I will be better once she's out. We get excited for baby day! I still haven't showered.

My doctor comes in and preps to insert my "crib." Basically she inserts a balloon into my cervix and inflates it which places pressure on my cervix forcing it to open in preparation for delivery. Contractions follow and hopefully my body responds. Sounds pretty straight forward but oh...the pain! No pain meds for this though...just deep breaths and focusing on the ceiling lights. Five minutes and it's over. I am told that when the pain is too much to withstand - I can request an epidural.

I need an epidural stat! So this is what contractions feel like. Husband calls moms and the family drives into the city. Over the course of the next few hours, I sleep more...still feel out of it from the magnesium...and everyone paces, reads, watches TV, etc. It was a long day of waiting. I've seen every new release to hit the movie theaters.

Still on the epidural and not much has happened. We send the parents home to get some rest. More of the same continues...hourly vital checks. We feel anxious. When is this going to happen? Did I mention I haven't showered since Thursday? The amazing nurses take pity on me and bath me. They even wash my hair. Truly a humbling moment and I make a vow to myself to never get ill and take care of my health. For those of you who have not had a baby yet or want to...nurses can make or break your delivery. For me, they made my stay and I am overwhelmed with gratitude all over again. I say a few prayers and pass out.

I am 5cm dilated! The crib comes out and they really start pumping pitocin in my IV big time. Let's get this party started! Now that the crib was out I was told I had to deliver within 24 hours.

The doc comes in to break my water. We now know there is no turning back.

Sunday, 5.8.11
It's Mother's Day! Family arrives again and we all wait. I get checked on every two or three hours. I still feel like junk but I am hopeful that I will have baby by mid-morning. Not so much! I am 6cm dilated and it stays this way for a longggggg time.

I am 10cm dilated! Doctor and nurse come in and ask me if I'm ready to push. Am I ready? Never been more ready!!! They walk me through the process including how to push and explain which team members will be there and what happen to baby girl upon delivery. Mind you I have been on epidurals for over 24 hours so I am numb to the world. Everyone leaves and it's the four of us...doc, nurse and husband. We prep and well...push.

Welcome Olivia! 3 pounds, 5 ounces, 21 inches. She comes out crying - this is a good thing. She's feisty and we like it! She's brought to a warmer and they run tests on her. I am in shock. It's over. She has 10 fingers. She has 10 toes. She's beautiful and healthy...just a peanut. I can't hold her but I touch her and she's super sweet and I breathe a big sigh of relief. We are now a family and we can recover and I know with 100% certainty that she is in the best possible care. Olivia gets wheeled up to the NICU to meet her new roomies and settles in. After a couple of hours {not kidding!} I get to stand up for the first time since Thursday! Halleujah! I am shaky but I get to sit in a wheel chair and go up to visit her. She is sleepy but peaceful.

We are in our new room and we sleep...long and hard. Tomorrow is a new day. And I have a daughter!

Olivia is doing so well. I am stuck in the hospital because my blood pressue is off the richter scale but we get to hold her, feed her, change her diapers, take her temperature...it's awesome. But then I have to face the music of being discharged and leaving my daughter behind. I feel like a caged animal since I have been in the hospital for a full week but I'm torn because I don't want to leave her behind. I cry a lot. Discharge day is a bad day. I miss her already.

Every day is different and they have different challenges. I am cautiously optimistic. I want her home early and I go through the rainbow of emotions. We visit her every day for the entire day. We really have no concept of time except when friends or family come to visit. Those highlights are second to holding her. My goal is to celebrate Father's Day together. Fingers crossed!

Well hello! I missed you guys! {btw, what happened to blogger this week?} I am finally settling back home after a long week in the hospital - really looking forward to writing out this unexpected birth story, too! This week has been a blur.

All things considered, we were amazingly blessed with Miss Olivia arriving 9 weeks early. And on that note, I wanted to express my gratitude for all of your comments, personal emails and prayers. Each little shout out and vote of strength made it easier to cope through all the changes we faced. THANK YOU so much for all of your little angel wings. And I am happy to report that our girl is doing well and is making little milestones each day. She's going to be hanging out with the NICU kids for awhile but she is getting the best possible care so we are cautiously optimistic that she will be an over-achiever and get out early. Fingers crossed, right?

Anyway, before I get all hormonal on you...again, thank you for your support and words of encouragement this week. Big virtual hugs and kisses. xoxo

Letter to my Daughter

Photo courtesy Patterson Maker

Dear Daughter:
Lots to discuss! I am counting down the days until you make your appearance. All things considered, the road was pretty smooth. You didn't give me heartburn. I never got morning sickness. You never gave me back pain. And hey...they say girls suck the beauty from you. This may be true but you never gave me unwanted skin problems either. So thanks...you make this whole pregnancy thing quite pleasant. For the record, I'd do it again. {I say that now...we'll see what you put me through in the delivery room}

You know your dad and I, we were really excited about you from the get-go. Actually, he was meant to be a dad...you'll see. I think you guys will have a lot of fun together. He's the kind of dad who will build things with you and take you to your first rock concert. He's big on music so you can count on appreciating it and hearing lots of different kinds in our house. {some I don't like...sounds like screaming...but that Wilco and LCD Soundsystem...I think he's onto something} Me...I am pretty run-of-the-mill. I've learned to really like a lot of his stuff but I still sneak in some hip hop and JT if you know what I'm sayin'.

Your grandparents, they are a lot of FUN, too. And you've got some really great uncles and aunts, too. They know what they're doing; much more than I do so please excuse some of the mistakes I make along the way. You are the 6th grandchild on dad's side and the 1st on my side. Needless to say, you will be spoiled rotten, I assure you. In fact, Grandma P has been putting together your nursery since 1978...kidding...sorta. And Grandma G has lots of love to share. You'd think she'd almost be out but that lady has some spunk. Grandpa P will probably make you watch the White Sox and come to our aid when you have math homework because I strongly dislike it. Grandpa G will teach you how to fish, camp and he will most definitely bring you a gift everytime he sees you. He's good like that.

And then there's me. Well, I've pretty much hoped, prayed, prayed some more and wished for you for almost 5{ish} years so when my test read "PREGNANT" I was in disbelief; so much so that I took 6 more tests! I found out about you the day before Halloween. I was pretty worried about you until I got past the first trimester so I'm super glad you were healthy and decided to make it for the long haul.

As for promises, I can truthfully tell you I haven't a clue at what I am doing but I promise to try really hard. And like I said, I am bound to make mistakes but not the kind where I drive around with you in my lap ala Britney. {that was a bad year for her...I'll tell you more about it later} I am fairly certain we are going to have a lot of fun. I won't make you wear a ton of pink but I'd be appreciative if you'd give ballet a shot. Soccer's pretty cool, too. I won't make you take the piano because I thought it was kinda boring. And you can choose what you want to wear to school everyday. Personally, I'd love to see what you put together and be confident that you will have a wide array of shoes to choose from.

Most important, you should know that no one's going to love you more than I/we do. I'll probably tell you that 100x's a day. Even when you're a teenager. In fact, out of the 101 things I write about on this blog, you have the top slot and I've never even laid eyes on you.

We can't wait to meet you. Hurry up!
