Ain't no party like a space party cuz' a space party don't STOP. (Literally) Our Floofs turned two the same day we brought home our little lady. We thought we'd celebrate all three, alas all of the birthday ladies slept through their party. Still, the cake was delicious! #floofs#birthday

My strong, brave girl rode into this world on a tempest on a blustery April evening. After the long ordeal, hearing her cry out for the first time will be forever imprinted on my mind. It was as if a lightning bolt of joy shattered me into a million peices, and from those peices I was rebuilt- still very much the same person, but also into something entirely new- a mother. Having her placed in my arms for the first time was truly one of the happiest moments of my life. My love for this tiny human knows no bounds. ...

Here is a shout out to my hubby, who has been the real MVP of Casa O'Neill the last few months. We live in a pretty egalitarian household, splitting up domestic duties between us (though, full disclosure, he is way better at keeping house than I'll ever be) but lately I've been a couch slug, reducing my sometimes helpful person into one who can only manage eating, sleeping and scrolling mindlessly through the interwebs. I admit, this winter was tough. Flirting both with S.A.D. and pregnancy hormonal fallout while growing a tiny human has taken a mental and physical toll ...

"Pregnancy is like the beginning of all things; wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities." -Anonymous What a journey the last months have been. Faced both with the incredible ups and the unpredictability that pregnancy brings, this body I share in tandem with another has tested my mettle in ways that has strengthened my resolve and appreciation for life. Moreover, it has shown me the strength of my own body and perseverance of mind over matter. In a very short time we will meet our little one, and we are excited beyond measure. I chose to put fear and doubt aside ...
Over the holidays I was handed a 'box o' Kristin' with memories spanning from birth to college. I rediscovered my senior portraits, Dramatics Hall of Fame pic, and random shots of adolescent me. Here are just a few. #memoires#boxofstuff
Today my heart grew three sizes! We were able to see the 3D images of our wee one and it now feels that much more real. In about ten weeks our entire world will change and words cannot describe the love and excitement that we are feeling. #baby#preggos
