New Babbler on the Block


My little family and it's about to get bigger!

Hi!  My name is Lauren Hartmann and I am the new blogger on the block here at Babble and so excited to be a part of this fabulous team of bloggers!  Since I’ll be here spilling my guts over the coming months about all the ups and downs of my very first pregnancy, I figured I should probably share a little bit more about myself.

I am a preschool teacher and wardrobe stylist living in Portland, Oregon with my husband Craig and our German Shepherd Marley.  When I’m not blogging here I write about our little life over at my blog The Little Things We Do.

Read more after the jump….

My husband I are incredibly excited to be having our first little bundle of joy, due in January.  Up to this point in life, we’ve only had a fur baby, but it can’t be that much different than having a kid, right?  Haha!  I’m sure all the mom’s out there just gave me a good eye roll.  I actually know a lot about children, having spent my entire working life with them, but now that I’m pregnant I’m realizing just how very little I know about babies and pregnancy.  But, I guess there’s no better time to find out!

Regardless of this minor detail (you know….the knowing nothing about babies detail) I’ve been learning a lot over these past 11 weeks and am continuing to learn as I go (thanks interweb!).  I look forward to sharing my experiences with you and learning more from the other great bloggers here as well as all of you readers.  Feel free to shower me with advice – I’m a sponge!  I hope you’re ready to laugh along with me as I figure out this journey of pregnancy!  Hope you have a great weekend!
