the monday snapshot – julia

This week, Julia is going to open up the week for us with her The Monday Snapshot post. She “cheated” and sent us two photos, but her son is so cute we couldn’t resist using both of them, so we gave her a pass 😉 Take it away, Julia!


Hi, and welcome, everyone from the Monday Snapshot at Pail!

This week’s snapshot surrounds a horrifying milestone.

For a while, I thought Ethan would walk before crawling, as he’s more happy being upright rather than on his stomach, but this week he migrated from a pretty fast Army Crawl to full out hands-and-knees. He’s SO fast.

Remember those days where you could put the babies on the floor and walk away to make your lunch… and they’d still be there?  NO MORE!




Now, get to know a little more about Julia with her answers to the Monday Snapshot “5 Questions”:

1) How long have you been blogging and how did you get started?

I’ve been blogging for about 10 years.  I started off with Livejournal, and then migrated to blogspot with my first blog “Just Relax.”  Just relax focused on my infertility journey, and then once we knew our little dude was sticking, I created “3 Bed, 2 Bath, 1 Baby,” my current depository of my thoughts.

2) Tell us a little about your ALI journey and your family (3-4 sentences):

We went through 2 years of Clomid/Testing.  In December of 2010 I had exploratory surgery which revealed some endo which was removed.  I got pregnant the cycle after that, which ended as a miscarraige.  The next cycle we got pregnant again… and he stuck!  We now have a lovely 9 month old, Ethan!

3) What makes you unique in the blogging world? (e.g. special talent, rare diagnosis, life experience)?

I rarely sensor myself.  I enjoy being silly, snarky, making fun of myself and life in general.  I also don’t tend to blog unless I feel I have something worth reading.  This can make my posting sporatic, but worth the wait (I hope 🙂

4) One word to describe yourself: 


5) What blog or website (IF or not) would you recommend to others? Why?


I would recommend The Bloggess.  She is hilarious, and my soul sister.  She has a great way to turning a normal experience into something totally hilarious.  She has a wonderful background which she talks about openly, including her battles with anxiety and depression, which has been so helpful to read as a fellow introvert/borderline anxiety ridden mom.
