About Us

Mike and I have been married for 10 years now, and luckily we still like each other! We've been together for over 15 years and we've spent it traveling, backpacking, climbing, skiing, triathloning, marathoning, sailing, eating, and going on as many adventures as possible. We now have two beautiful boys, Sam & Charlie, and we couldn't be more excited about seeing a whole new world through their eyes in the years to come!

Charlie

Baby Blommer #2 has arrived, and it's a boy!! We'd like to welcome Charlie Eric into the world! Charlie was born May 28th! This big boy weighed in at 9lbs, 3ozs, and was 21.5 inches long.

I was so happy that I was able to deliver him without a c-section (had a c-section with Sam)!! After a long, 48+ hour labor (contractions started on the 26th at 7:00am at 10 mins apart), he came into the world happy and healthy!! My goal was to go un-medicated, and I had prepared for a long time to do this, but after the long labor, and having contractions that were 1 min apart and 2 mins long consistently for hours and still being only dilated to 1 cm, I threw in the towel, and got the epidural. I have absolutely NO regrets about this because I know I couldn't have made it though extra 12 hours with the 1 min apart contractions, and it was such an amazing experience to enjoy and watch him come into the world (not saying it wouldn't have been amazing to go un-medicated too though, and for those of you who have done it, you are my ultimate heroes!).

Anyway, we couldn't be happier with our little Charlie and our family of four! Now we just have to figure out how to survive again with no sleep!

Here are some pics. The one with two babies in it is a pic of Charlie and Sam side by side, both in their 2nd day of life on the same cushion in the same hospital. Can you tell who is who? Crazy how similar they look, right?
