How’s Parenthood Going?

Hey! We have a 5 month old! Oh blog, how you have been ignored with just sad, sparse posts for, well, probably a couple years now. Do I start every post by admitting that I’ve ignored my blog? Yes.
Since this is going to be full of describing our first fumbles through […]

A Baby Story

Posted: Sunday, March 18th, 2012 @ 4:54 pm in Daily | No Comments »

Remember that show on TLC? Is it still on?
Anyway, I wanted to blog Heath’s birth story for the annals of hollyslife.com history.
I had my weekly OB appointment on Tuesday, 3/6. I had Chris come with me as I knew that since I was approaching 41 weeks, they’d want to schedule an induction. […]

It’s a Wonderful-ish Life

Let’s start with the positive. Is it amazing that I’m growing a PERSON inside of me? Yes. The miracle is not lost on me. I know this is a privilege and life will be forever changed. I am grateful and thankful for this opportunity.
That said, I feel like if I’m […]

Can we just move to a big house in the country and make gourmet baby food?
3 questions:
1. How do working moms do it?
2. How do stay-at-home moms do it?
3. How do parents do it?
As exciting as this time is, I wish I could just have a tiny sneak peek a year into […]

To Forever Have Your Heart Outside Your Body

Yes, we have decided to boldy go where billions and billions have gone before us - parenthood!
We are feeling all the things that first-time parents feel: stunned, excited, scared, happy, nervous, hopeful, and much more.
I’m copying a style other gals I know have used when blogging about pregnancy (thanks!); a little Q&A
- When am I […]

Impromptu Family Weekend

Posted: Monday, April 4th, 2011 @ 2:05 pm in Daily | No Comments »

Amy, Eric, and the kids came up for the weekend, which, amazingly enough, wasn’t planned until the Monday previous and we were all able to work it out!
Friday night everyone was at our place for my veggie chili and cornbread (my favorite veg. meal I’ve made so far). Everyone seemed to enjoy it.
Our house […]

Skiing 2011

After having skipped last year’s trip, we were muy anxious to get back to Winter Park! It was much like other trips out there - fun, tiring, relaxing, with some intimidating runs (hey, blues can be scary).
The days kind of run together as you’re doing the same thing everyday (breakfast, skiing, lunch, skiing, dinner, […]

Holidays 2010

Christmas was a couple days ago and I’m already missing it. I’ll be 30 next year and I love it as much as I did when I was a kid, though I suppose that’s a good thing! Anyway, time for a recap. Christmas day was Chris and my mom.
Again, when you’re almost […]

SO since it’s been 4 months and 2010 is coming to a close, I thought I better finally blog again! It has been a wonderful year for us Hettingers and families. Even though this should “technically” be done at Thanksgiving, I wanted to list what I’m thankful for in this past year
- The […]
