about me


Hi, I'm Jenni. And this is my crew.

I’m a Philly sports loving, wine drinking, full-time working
wife & mama of four adorable kiddos: Carter, Brynn, Reid & Emerson.
{Yes, four. On purpose. Kinda. More on that later.}

Our first kiddo, Carter, turned seven in July. He's full of energy and has
been keeping us on our toes since the day he surprised us two full weeks early.
{And weighed 9.5 pounds.  Whew.}

My girlfriend Brynn joined our crew not even 2 years later.  She turned five in
May and is heading to kindergarten this year. She is sweet as can be and we just
can't get enough of her.
{I'm sure she'll pay us back in her teenage years.}

We happily welcomed our third baby on September 10, 2012.
{Can you believe our nerve being team green and making everyone else wait?  Pfft.}

I totally thought it would be a girl.
{My motherly instincts suck.}

I gave birth to Reid on the same exact day that my little sister gave birth to her baby girl.
In the same hospital.
They were born an hour apart.
It was pretty amazing.
{You can read about it here.}

Just 7 months later, we got the surprise of a lifetime...
you guessed it... baby IV was on the way.
We welcomed a sweet baby girl into the family in January, 2014.
{Way to even up the score, girlfriend.}

Little Miss Emerson Mae was officially the best and easiest baby ever,
but don't worry... she's getting us back now.

Oh, so now is probably a good time to add that all of my kids were monster babies.
So if you look back at old posts that include pictures, they are not sumo wrestlers...
they're just my "normal-sized" monster babies.
{Like 9.5lbs, two weeks early, kinda big.  Or 9 lbs 15.22oz, born early, why couldn't the doc just give me the 10lbs, kinda big. Yep, monsters. Cute ones.}

So, who's that guy?  Well, that's Bob.
We were married on 11.11.06, our 5 year dating anniversary
{Awww.}

The two of us work at the same university in Philadelphia and commute together everyday.
{Why yes, it IS the only time we're alone together all day. Thanks for asking.}

As for me, I’m a middle child of three girls and love it.
{This also explains a lot about me.}

This blog is about me. My life. Me as a mother of one, and then two, and then three, and now four {yes, we're crazy.} Adjusting to life with kids. Adjusting to being a full-time working mama. Pregnancy. Losing weight. {And pregnancy.  And losing weight again. Andplusalso? Pregnancy. And losing weight.}

Always taking the humorous approach to motherhood.
{Is there any other way?}

This blog was started as a means of documenting my first pregnancy.
Now? Now with 4 kids I use it to remember what the hell I did yesterday.
{I’m serious, I have no idea.}

Oh, hey... here are a few popular posts to get you started.

Thanks for visiting.
