the monday snapshot – Lulu

Lulu from The Wild Rumpus is going to open up the week for us with her contribution to the 12th edition of The Monday Snapshot – an evolution of the MMM feature, meant to bring the PAIL blogroll to life by giving its members a chance to feature themselves and make new connections. If you would like to be featured on The Monday Snapshot, please sign-up here!


Here is my snapshot!

As you may know, when you have a new baby, you only leave the house as a matter of necessity. Our first several ventures out as a family were to go grocery shopping on the weekends. Slowly, as Alexander got less cranky an we got more courageous, we started adding lunch into the mix.
Now, every Saturday we take a trip into town to go out to lunch and get groceries. It’s easily my favorite part of the week! It’s become such a fun tradition. 
Alexander is starting to sit up on his own, so now we put him in a big boy chair at restaurants. I never get tired of people staring at him and talking about how cute he is. ; )


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

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

I have always been a journaler. I kept a livejournal all through college, and had a different, public blog for a few years. Shortly after we started TTC, I opened my current blog (January 2010). I love being anonymous!

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

I have PCOS and endometriosis. We tried two rounds of clomid/TI and two clomid IUIs before moving on to IVF. Our first IVF was a disaster, but our second yielded Alex, the most beautiful little boy you’ve ever seen! He was born May, 2012.

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

I’m afraid my blog is not all that unique. I’m a breastfeeding, cloth diapering, full-time working, infertile 20-something who is trying to figure out how to be a mommy! Sometimes I swear too much.

4) One word to describe yourself: 

Indecisive – because I stared at this for 20 minutes without settling on anything.

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

I’m obsessed with The Honest Toddler! The blog, twitter feed, and facebook page are all absolutely hilarious.
