Who are you? {Round II}

Honestly? You guys are the best readers. Like... ever.

Yesterday, the blog went from #23 to #19 and it's all because of you. Thank you. I know I don't win a prize for moving up the ranks, but in a way I feel like I do. I get more readers like you. So again I thank you for taking the time to vote for me. You guys rock!

It's been a while since I did a "Who are you?" post {see Round I here} so I thought, because I have some new followers/readers, it was about time I did it again. It's honestly one of my favorite posts to do EVER because I get to learn more about you.

So, who are you? Why do you read my blog? Do you have any questions for me or want me to blog about something I may not have touched on yet? Do you have a blog of your own and, if so, can you please link it for me? Are you a parent? Pregnant? Thinking about a family?

I'd love to hear from you!! Oh, and if you commented in Round I, please comment again this time too!

I love you all!

PS- Brynn slept through the night for the first time since... I don't even know when. Lately she's been waking up 2-4x/night and we were beginning to think she gave up sleeping as part of her New Year's Resolution. More to come on this... I was just happy to get a full nights sleep!

I'll play! I'm shannon- I have been following you since the knot. we were pregnant at the same time with our boys and then again with our girls. I think I enjoy your honesty and stories! I do have a blog:

Larissa: said...

I'll play again ;-) I'm Larissa, I've been following you since the nest/the bump (whatever it was and is now called). I love reading your blog because you are very real. I could totally picture us being bff's IRL! LOL! I live vicariously through you and your family ;-) (I'm starting to sound like a stalker, but I promise I am not!) I always share your family stories with my hubby and tell him that I wish we were like that. You are a SUPERMOM and I have no idea how you do it. I am genuinely jealous.

My blog is 1st-time-parents.blogspot.com

Amanda said...

I'll play too!

I am Amanda and I started following when I got pregnant last year. I saw your belly picture on first tri (I know you know which one I am talking about) and found your blog very interesting, funny and most importantly you are so relatable. I am also a graphic designer and I do work on the side (mostly cards) and I saw your shop on etsy and it gave me some inspiration. You started my addiction to blog following and I just can't stop myself now.

I now participate in your Y3W so I think you are already linked to my blog because you have commented before.

Thanks for writting so often, your outlook on things sometimes brings me back right where I need to be when I feel like I can't handle being a new mom!

I am Amanda. I came across your blog by going to the Top Mommy Blog site, although I do frequent the Bump I have never come across you. I enjoy reading other mommy blogs. They give me idea's of things to do with DD. I also have my own blog- http://tenlittlefingerstentinytoes.blogspot.com

Michelle said...

Hey Jen!
Just wanted to say hi, it's been a while. I've known you since the knot and discovering you were having your reception at Harry's a week prior to mine.
That's right, it's Michelle.
I'm so glad you're doing well.
I don't have a blog yet, but it is a resolution of mine to document the little moments of my life...so a blog should be coming shortly.
I'll keep you posted.

Sumer said...

Im Sumer. We were pregnant for our babies at the same time. Found your blog through the Bump. Thinking about another one :) Actually have an appointment with our RE at the end of the month.

Have two blogs. One just for the baby (so I can have it printed at the end of the year)


And a more of a family one that includes everything else.


Victoria said...

I'm still here! Been reading since the tri boards when we were all pregnant with #1! and you made my DS's awesome Sesame Street 1st birthday invitation so that was fun. I love reading your blog, your kids are so cute. Now that I'm going to have 2 myself, it's nice to read positive blogs of others who are doing it and staying sane :P I know you're friends with people who think Im the enemy but whatever I still love your blog!


ashley said...

Oh psh, you know me :) I'll tell you though, your blog is definately one of my favorites. Especially when we were both pregnant at the same time, twice! I loved seeing your updates. Keep up the good work, Momma!


jenni from the blog said...

@ Michelle- AHHHHH! So glad to "see" you!!

@ Victoria- I'm really clueless, so don't worry about it! =)

Jessica said...

I participated in round 1 but I will again too. I know you from the bump (nest at the time)...we were pregnant with our boys at the same time. I have two kids who are just a few months older than each of your two kids which is why I enjoy reading your blog.

I'd love to hear more of how your kids interact with eachother. Don't you just love watching them growing up together?!

You can check out my blog at:


Mrs. S said...

I'm new, so I'll PLAY! I'm Megan, I'm a mom to a 6 month old boy!!! I started following you after seeing your blog linky on 1st tri last year! I found your blog interesting because you were going to have two kids under TWO! Crazy, I still don't know how you do it!

No questions here! Or any blog suggestions :)

I have a blog, you can find it here:

The said...

Hi! I'm Theana. I found your blog through Top Mommy Blogs when I was pregnant with my son (he was born just a few weeks after Brynn). I like reading about your life and your family. I have a blog, too, but it is mostly just pictures.


SSG said...

Hi! I'm Shannon, I found you through the Bump, my son Jack is a few months younger than Brynn. I love seeing pics of your adorable family and seeing Carter grow up especially, since I have a baby boy. Its nice to picture what he'll be doing in a few years!
I have a blog as well, http://babyshmizz.blogspot.com

Maria said...

Hi Jenni, I'm Maria. I have been "stalking" your blog for awhile. I found you through Erynn Rooney's blog, and I found hers through another blog I read! It's funny how you stumble upon other blogs and some just click. Yours clicked for me. I have a 2.5 year old son and we are expecting # 2 in July (not sure of the gender yet). You can find my blog at http://brianborchardt.blogspot.com

MB said...

Hi, my name is Mariko. I love reading your blog. I have been reading your blog for a while now, but don't usually post. I have two boys. My oldest is three and my youngest is 8 almost 9 months.

My blog address is http://jmbbfamily.blogspot.com

Your kids are adorable!

Unknown said...

Hi Jenni!
My name is Censie - I met you and started stalking your blog while we were both on thebump and pregnant. :O) I had baby Jude on Junde 25th and I have continued to follow you and your adorable family. I love playing Y3W!! So right now we are just being parents maybe TTC in about a year. We will see! I love hearing about day to day activities with little ones, gives me ideas for Jude and me. Love your blog!

Katie said...

Hi Jenni. I found your blog while you were pregnant with Brynn because I was helping a friend decorate her nursery. I've stayed around because I think you are so honest/funny/real. We don't have any kids yet, but my husband and I are definitely starting to talk about it (scary!).

My two dogs are my children so I'd love to hear more about how Kai gets along with the kiddos and if you and Bob had to make any adjustments when Carter came along.

Brittany said...

Hey Jenni! I think I found your blog forever ago on the nest...or bump..whatever. I have been reading it ever since. I have a blog at raineydayramblings.blogspot.com
I have two boys...one just turned 2 in December and a 5 almost 6 month old. I love reading about your babies since mine are almost the same age...so fun! When are you having #3...we're trying to decide how far apart we want the next one and I love basing important life decisions on internet stranger's opinions. :) LOVE the blog! :)

Thanks for your blog, it is always a fun read!

Allie'sMama said...

Hi Jenni - I've found you're blog on the bump when I was pregnant with my Allie. Allie was born on may 30 so I believe she's a few days younger than Brynn. I love reading your stories - you're such a great writer! Allie is a monster baby just like Brynn. She wears 18 month clothes and has been off the chart since day one. Hooray for monster babies!

kacy said...

i'm still your sister.

Jessica said...

You know me, at least through the internet. ;) So I can say we go way back, for now. I don't think I found your blog until we went through the tri boards together but I am an avid reader!

Natalie said...

Hi! I'm Natalie and I found your blog on Top baby blogs. Before I read anything about your adorable kiddos, I could tell that we have similar styles and personalities - then I saw that your daughter is Brynn and so is mine! Brynn Sophia is beautiful, mine is Brynn Caroline and she is 3.5 months old now with big beautiful eyes, too! I'm from Harrisburg, but live in Pittsburgh now and love hearing all about your life, as I hope to have another little one soon!

Megan said...

I'm Megan - I read your blog because I can relate to you in a lot of different ways! I am a Mom of 2 boys under 2... life is crazy most days but I love it. :)

Synchrosally said...

Hey! I'm Andrea. I read your blog because I remember you from The Bump and your kiddos are so freaking adorable! Oh and I also love your music (kinda stole it for my own blog, hope you don't mind). I'm a new mommy to a 7 month old and he is the love of my life (sorry hubby). I have two blogs actually. One is my personal blog that I have a hard time updating, and the other is for my photo card biz.

AmandaD said...

I've followed your blog since the tri-boards last year. I had my son Jack the day before you had Brynn! First, I love reading because of your sense of humor-I feel like we'd really get along in real life and I probably wouldn't stop laughing! Also, I like your "realness" when it comes to baby stuff, family stuff, wine :) etc. Also, love to read about your adventures with your sisters and the relationship you three have. I can relate with 1 sister and 2 cousins-we are all very close!
Keep up the posts and beautiful photos too!

Kayla said...

I commented the first time, but I'll play again!! I'm Kayla - I have 2 little ones (a 2 year old and a 6 month old.) I used to blog, but I've recently started school again and it's somewhat difficult for me to even think of anything to blog about. Oh, I found you on the bump...I was on TB when I was pregnant with my little girl (the 6 month old)but have stopped doing that too. But, that is me =). I love your blog btw!!

mel said...

Hi- I’m mel, (mrs07c) I read your blog because I find it entertaining and I discovered you the same time I discovered my obsession for the Philly Phanatic…and I had seen something on your blog history about it so I started following. (But I’m still a Yankee fan). I found you on the bump first. I think you have pretty much touched on everything, or did when you did the questions post. My blog is Never a Dull Moment {http://mrs07c.blogspot.com/}. My hubby and I have Lexie born 8/9/10! : )

Bridget said...

Not sure if I commented last time. I'm Bridget and I started following your blog back when you were pregnant with Carter and I was pregnant with my son(they are about 3 weeks apart). You also did Oliver's 1st birthday invites, baseball theme. I have a blog, but don't update it as much as I should: joeandbridget.blogspot.com

I am now pregnant with our second son, due June 7th. One thing I would love to hear about is if Carter is potty trained, or if you have started yet?

The Lehmans said...

Hi there!

I am Aly and I found your blog on Top Mommy Blogs while on bed rest with my twins...I have been reading ever since. :)

I have a blog too

:) Thanks for writing...your kiddos are adorable!

Kimberly said...

I'll play! I'm Kim. I've been following your blog since you were pregnant with Brynn (I was pregnant at the same time). I really enjoy reading your posts! You're so honest & down-to-earth! I usually find myself saying "me too" as I read your entries. Plus I think your kids are adorable!

I also have a blog, though fairly new...

Jenna said...

Hi there! I have been following you since you were probably in your first trimester with Brynn! My son is almost 1 month younger than her! I found you on the Bump and have been hooked ever since :) I love that you are a Supermom and you are also very real! Your blog started my addiction to blog following, LOL! Your kids are adorable and I just love reading your posts!! Keep up the great work :)

Shan said...

Hey there!
You know who I am, and I am very fortunate that you follow both of my blogs and support my up-and-coming business. I am SO thankful for you!
I am a mom to one...we're not so sure about more after Owen's traumatic birth and a horrid pregnancy. Darn those Monster babies! ;)
I love your blog - you're so real and honest, and that is something that I truly admire about you.

I'd love more Philly Fanatic stories! lol I love him!

Tiffany said...

Hello! I've been following your blog since I originally saw you on the Bump. We were pregnant with our boys at the same time. I love reading about your adventures with your adorable kids. I have two boys, Zachary who is 2 years and 4 months and a newborn (8 day old) boy named Brighton.

One question that I have for you is... how do you like your Baby Jogger City Mini Double?? I am considering getting one for my boys. I too have complete stroller obsession and have been going back and forth between the City Mini and the Bumbleride Indie Twin... any insight that you can offer on the City Mini would be AWESOME! Especially from someone with two kids that are different ages :)

I look forward to continuing to read your blog. Thanks for posting so often!


Judy said...

I'm Judy and I'm a new follower. I started following because I wanted to do a blog of my own and I wanted some ideas on how to reach people and make it interesting. I'm a mother of a beautiful 7month old who has a rare metabolic disorder called NKH. I would love to be able to spread the word about NKH because there is very little known about it.


Megan said...

I'm Megan - started following this blog when we were on the Bump tri-boards together. Our girls were born just a few days apart.

Tracie said...

Hi! I'm Tracie-found your blog thru Erynn's. I was bored at work and clicking through blogs and stopped at yours and have been reading ever since! Your kiddos are just precious! I have a blog as well:

Kristen said...

I'm in, I'll play!

I've been following you since the nest/bump. We were pregnant around the same time. I have a 2 year old daughter, Grace, and boy/girl twins Emma and Carter!


Nitzalie said...

E.A.G.L.E.S...Eagles! I think I may be your newest follower:) My Name is Nitzalie, also from Philly, but call North Jersey my home now. My husband and I are also pretty die hard Eagles, and Phillies fans:) I'm a First - time Mommy and saw your blog on Top Baby Blogs. I also have a blog and hope you stop by and visit sometime: www.peanutandme.com

Your children are adorable :) My Peanut -aka- Madison was born 6/24/10, a month after your Lil Baby Girl :)

Becki said...

I'm Becki, and I found your blog through the Nest/Bump. I was pregnant with my son when you were pregnant with Carter. My son was born two months later. I'm originally from PA and just recently moved back, and my family is also HUGE baseball fans, so I've always felt connected in that way with you guys being such huge Phillies fans.

I do have a blog {I actually emailed you about Y3W over a year ago} although it is kind of lame at the moment {http://teamabccba.blogspot.com/}, and I would love to have you as a follower.

Yes, I copied and pasted this from the last "Who are you?" post. I haven't written a real blog post in a month. But I have been faithfully participating in Y3W.

Hilary said...

I'm hilary :) I found you through a friends blog. I read because you are much more real than the other mommy blogs out there. your posts are funny and touching (just read about your dads accident-I was in tears!). I'm a mommy to a 2 year old daughter who is the apple of my eye.

my blog is hilary-addison.blogspot.com

Angela said...

Hi Jenni!

I started reading your blog when I saw your belly picture with Brynn on the bump! We were pregnant at the same time with girls! :) We talk a little on twitter now and I think you seem so genuine and friendly! I love your blog and you make me want to start one! I just don't know how, LOL!


Laura said...

My name is Laura. I found you on the bump, loved your reasonable thoughts on parenting, and love that you are also from South Jersey. We're in Oaklyn.
I had our daughter Emma on 5/13/10. She's wonderful, it's hard to believe she is the same age as Brynn because she is so tiny compared to her. She was a preemie, she's about 15 pounds now...maybe.
I went to Les Mis last night. It was amazing. You are going to love it. Have fun!

Krystal said...

My name is Krystal. Your little girl is just a few weeks older than my son. I am now pregnant with our second and I am so nervous about two under two, or two that are 12.5 months apart! I would love to read more or talk to you more about having them so close in age. My blog is http://hassenfamilyblog.blogspot.com/.

Sarah said...

Hi Jenni!!
I came across your blog on Top Baby Blogs while you were pregnant with Brynn and I was preggers my little girl, born a week or so after Brynn on 6/6. I love watching Brynn grow and develop along with Evelina.


April said...

I'm April, AprilMW from Bump....where I initially saw you! We were pregnant at similar times and I loved following your blog then because you always posted such cute updates on Brynn's room/ outfits etc! No blog of my own....not sure I could keep up with one and/or have ideas on what to write.

I'm mommy to Payton - 8 mos old. My little "chunk" :) That's me in a nutshell!

Kimberly said...

Hey girlie...
I think you know who I am, but I'll play anyway. Originally I was fall-love on the Knot, and we "met" on the fall board. :) Then it was on to the Nest/Bump since our boys are almost exactly the same age... in the beginning I think we actually had the same due date. ;) Now I'm here... http://thenewdixons.blogspot.com
Yay, you, on the Mommy Blogs! Keep it up! :)

Jessica Hrouda said...

Jenni - I began following your site from thebump when we were both pregnant with our girls - My Abby was born on May 20th - You are real and very relatable, Im a MD girl relocated to the panhandle of WV (work in MD though) We relate on our love of WINE! Love the new blog layout, and following you on twitter now :) Starting to finally blog now myself.
