Charlie Rowan | First Weeks

Charlie Rowan | First Weeks

A quick little brain dump of all of the amazing things (and a few not so amazing) that have happened during the first 2 and a half weeks….

Charlie is opening her eyes more and more. I love this precious time with her when she stares at things with such intent. I wish I knew what she was thinking during these little moments.

She makes the most hilarious face I’ve ever seen! Her little furrowed brow and old man face kill me! And she’s definitely a tongue sticker-outer so boys be ware!!


We had our first projectile poop! Didn’t even know that was possible! Ask Ian for the full story! I’ll spare you a photo of that!

We ventured to our first Bee’s game and she did great! Sang our first Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Charlie started moving her head from side to side and grasping on to shirts, hair, and even attempting to figure out how to keep her binki in her mouth!

Charlie got her first baths…some were a success, some not so much!! Once she could be fully submerged she enjoyed them way more! She also peed or pooped through every towel we’ve put her in!

So proud of her, but sad she’s already growing so fast! Soon all of her cute little newborn outfits will be outgrown!! Where does the time go??

Charlie Rowan | Welcome to the World

Charlie Rowan | Welcome to the World

People tell you that your world will change when this little babe you’ve been carrying around for the past 9 months decides to make an appearance but I don’t think you can truly understand what that means until the instant that little one enters the world. Yes, everything changes but in this unbelievable I would do anything for this tiny being kind of way. You re-evaluate everything you thought you knew about life and instantly they are the center of your world.

I find it hard to think of anything or one else that could waltz in and completely disrupt your life, a life you’ve spent years to find balance in, a good routine, and one you’ve filled with people you love, and not resent that source of disturbance. Yet, somehow there’s not a single once of resent. As cliche as it is I would give up anything for this little babe from the second I met her.

It’s that unconditional parent/child kind of love that total rocks your world and changes it in ways you never knew possible.

So 5 days after your due date, 27 hours labor, 16 of those being natural labor, we welcomed little Charlie Rowan Foster into this little world of ours and our lives instantly changed but filled with more love than I could of ever imagined.

Prego…Week by Week ish

Prego…Week by Week ish

Let’s be honest no one likes to take pictures of themselves with their inner fat kid showing on the outside!  Especially not when it feels like you are doubling in size week by week!

However, I’ve asked my mom numerous times what she looked like during pregnancy and since there isn’t a single photo to be found the only thing I had to go on was “I was HUGE”  which I’m sure she felt but I can’t imagine she was.  So I’ve done my very best to cringe my way through documenting my pregnancy every few weeks and not deleting every “fat” photo that was taken. So as I’m sitting here 1 day overdue, wishing and praying (and maybe even shedding a few tears), for this baby to come out I’ve decide to see just how far me and this little one have come over the last 40 weeks….

December 5th, 2013 – 7 weeks

I swear I peed on 5 of these things before I was convinced we were actually prego.  It was one of those things I wanted so bad I think I was afraid to believe it was actually true!

December 27th, 2012 – 10 weeks

I remember taking this photo and almost deleting it because I felt fat…little did I know!  Funny how different things are in retrospect! At 9 weeks I was craving a ton of dairy products (cheese, yogurt, milk) pretty much anything dairy I was all about and I was desperately missing coffee….but let’s be honest I’m still missing coffee!!

January 16, 2013 – 12 weeks

12 weeks was when you feel chubby…like I might of just eaten 10 too many cookies during the holidays!  This is when I started borrowing looser fitting tops from Ma….again I felt HUGE…silly me, how little did I know what huge really felt/looked like!

January 22, 2013 – 14 weeks

This is the week E and I decided to start telling people the exciting news and of course I made Bozley do the announcing!  I mean it does do a pretty great job at it!  There is something really exciting and kind of scary all at the same time about announcing to your friends and family that your going to be parents….I remember feeling anxious about sharing the news for some strange reason.

February 11, 2013 – 17 weeks

17 weeks, starting to get an official “bump” but still able to hide it!  I was obsessed with tomatoes, eating 4-5 a day just like an apple with salt.  Come to think of it I don’t know if I was more into the tomato or the salt!

March 12th, 2013 – 21 weeks

Still doing lots of yoga and running at this point and starting to become obsessed with fruit which has carried out through the rest of my pregnancy.  I think I’ve worked out more consistently since I’ve been pregnant than I had the previous 10 months…I guess it’s a plus size to worrying about getting “HUGE” like your mother.  (again I do not believe she was huge, but with no photos how will I ever know?!)

March 23 rd, 2013 – 23 weeks

One of the first nights that I started to wear my bump out loud and proud!  Looking back I think these few weeks are the best part of being prego when it comes to fashion.  You can wear cute tight clothing without feeling huge and finally let people know that your carrying around a little bundle with you!  However, I also remember asking Ian way to frequently “can you tell I’m prego or do I just look fat?” at this stage!

April 27th, 2013 – 28 weeks

At 28 weeks we headed down to the Swell for Kate’s annual camping trip, we had such a great time and so glad we went!  This was the only camping trip we did this summer as sleeping in the desert was not the most comfortable thing in the world at the time!

May 14th, 2013 – 30 weeks

31 weeks and still running!  I swear by staying active during pregnancy, even on the worst of days it made me feel better!  And an added bonus you get to buy all new workout clothes!

May 18th, 2013 – 31 weeks

The day I went for a run and realized my toes were going to disappear soon!  This is when tying my shoes start to become not that awesome of a feeling!  Who would of thought life was this much harder with a big ol’ belly??!!

 June 1st, 2013 – 33 weeks

Summer time in the SLC means biking to the Bees games with E and Chi and I was not about to miss out!  Although biking home uphill was a little more challenging than it use to be!

June 15th, 2013 – 35 weeks 

Nick and Kelly’s wedding weekend in Boulder, CO!  So glad I was able to make the trip for this celebration, talk about an amazing weekend filled with some incredible friends!  I wouldn’t of missed it for the world!  This was 4 weeks before my due date and I remember E and I talking about the “what if I go into labor early” plan…little did I know how stubborn this little one was going to be to make it’s debut!

July 10th, 2013 – 38 weeks

This was at 38 weeks when I was still holding out hope that I was going to be one of those lucky people who make it to 37 weeks but don’t have to wait all the way until 40 weeks!  Mind you we had also had 7 straight days of 100+ degrees in SLC….brutal doesn’t even begin to describe it!

July 15th, 2013 – 39 weeks

This was just last week, again still hopeful I wouldn’t make it all the way to my due date, and again 100+ temperatures!  But what are you going to do?  This little babe’s got to come out at some point, let’s just hope it’s not as stubborn as it’s Mama!
