Wow! I am feeling so much better already! I just finished day two of my workout series and I am feeling pretty awesome I must say. My little man and I are doing awesome. However, I am a little bit concerned. Sometimes it seems like my boyfriend/baby daddy isn't bonding as well as I am with our little one. It seems almost like he rather do any other that help me out with him. Something has really been bothering me lately, almost like I don't wanna be with him anymore. I mean I love him, but…Continue

I know, I know horrible title. I when out for the first time since my DS was born. We went bowling with our roommate and his family. It was alot of fun and I just have to say, thank god for counter tops, changing pads, extra diapers and bottles. Everyone was telling me to leave my son at home with the babysitters, but I didn't and boy was I happy I didn't! He was cooing and meeting new people and he only cried when he was hungry otherwise he was awesome! I just love how well tempered he…Continue

I baby sat for the first time last night into today since I have had my son (who is 5 almost 6 weeks). Its just crazy to think that my adoptive parents had six of us! I really can't believe it all! I'm not gonna lie, having a baby and trying to babysit was really hard at first, but as the night progressed it got easier. It really made me stop and think about five years from now. When I go to have my mirena removed when and if I get pregnant again. How am I going to deal with the little one…Continue
Today was so interesting! I had several errands to run today and the first thing this morning was going to salvation army, I arrived and sat down in one of the chairs and pulled my DS, Jadyn out of the stroller. He was grunting a lot so I just held him. He was attracting so much attention. I swear! When I sat down all the sudden everyone turned around and started asking me all these questions about him. I just smiled and answered. He woke up after a diaper change and started to coo at all…Continue

So I was at the doctors office for my DS one month check up, and I got him stripped down. weighed and measured. After meeting with the nurse, I was left to wait for my DS new pediatrician. He started to cry because he was hungry so I happily pulled out the breast for some BF. He immediately went to town, I switched him to the other side and he pooped in the diaper while eating, which is not unusual for him. So I finished up and pulled out a diaper, and spilled a little breast milk, (because…Continue

Dear Baby Princess,
This week has been our first attempt at returning to life pre-cast.
You are at your new daycare, and the transition has been a little rocky for all of us. You are, of course, at an age where you now realize that you are no longer spending every day with your parents, which has become your norm. I doubt you have any recollection of your old daycare, and even if you did, it would be a pretty big change. So while you are still your sweet…Continue

So I am not one of "those" moms who is constantly looking for things to worry about, I can barely sleep as it is. From anxiety over what my kids are eating to be warm enough at night, there is always something to worry about. I recently read an article that surprised me about baby and toddler injuries. One of the…Continue
Dear my sweet baby girl,
I dont think you quite understand the level of love that I have for you yet for your only a wee 6 months old. Since you came into my life I have never felt such love and pure hapiness for any one person in this…Continue

Potty training. Where do I begin....I suppose Day 1 is a good start. We dove head on into this adventure 3 days ago, though I introduced you the potty several months ago. You had peed in it a few times, but generally weren't interested and sometimes flat out cried for a diaper, and I wasn't going to push you. These past 3 days have been much better, and you have been as enthusiastic as me! Maybe more so. Allow me to elaborate...
Day 1. Oh, and let me…

I've waited for what feels like a lifetime for this day... and I must say, it was everything I had dreamed of. Things didn't go as planned, the ceremony didn't start until 2 hours later (long story!), things were haywire for a little while there... but at the end of the day we were surrounded by a beautiful scene off Lake Anna, friends and family we love, and the joy of entering into a marriage.
My heart finally feels complete. It's like we had all the pieces to a family- the love,…Continue
Well according to Our365 it is a fact but I had heartburn so bad I had ACID running up my nose with all of my kids. AND they were ALL born BALD!!!! So if this is "proven by scientists" why did all three of my kids give me hellacious heartburn yet they were all born bald? What am I a freak of nature? or maybe it's my kids....haha Just had to blog about this. It bugs me when they come out with info that I personally have proven wrong. Well, after thinking about it, maybe I am the freak. I…Continue
Dear Baby Princess,
This one isn't exactly for you either, but it is about you.
It's much more for any parents out there who are in the situation we were in 5 months ago, when we first learned that you were going to be in a spica cast. As a mom who was searching the internet for some sort of comforting advice, I was disappointed not to find much. Of course it was helpful to see the technical stuff: what a spica cast looks like, how to care for it, etc. But…Continue

Dear Baby Princess,
Odds look good that you'll be a traveler like your mom.
Okay, it's probably a little early to make that kind of prediction. But I just have to record how adorable you've been about the plane ride we took a couple of months ago - just you and me, a quick weekend trip for baby C's first birthday.
You've been on planes before, of course, but it makes sense that this is the first trip you remember. First, I must tell you that you…Continue

Dear Baby Princess,
Sorry, this one isn't for you.
But, maybe this is one of those that will be a good etiquette lesson for you as you get older. It's something I've been thinking about for a while, since we have many friends with twins, but it somehow seems more pronounced now that J is expecting triplets (!).
It seems that almost every time I tell someone that a friend of mine is expecting more than one baby, they ask - in one way or another -…Continue
It was Eleanor Roosevelt that once said that, “no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Surely she wasn’t considering her six children when she made that statement. In the two months since I have had our daughter (our first), I have found that there have been so many moments where I have felt a little bruised by the circumstances. I say that with a light heart because slowly but surely we have made it through all of the…Continue
if i had a chance to do it all over again, i would just drive to texas.
all in all, im glad we went. my great-aunt was very happy to see tommy and the pictures i took the last few days made the trip worth it.
however, i will never fly with a toddler over 2 and under 44 lbs EVER AGAIN. by myself, anyway!
even though i took the two days prior to the trip off of work just getting out of the door was an epic feat. i was so exhausted that i fell asleep and forgot to put the…Continue
Dear Baby Princess,
Happy New Year, Happy Birthday and Happy Freedom!
So, once again I'm behind on all of this, and so much more that I want to tell you. But you are doing amazingly well, sweet girl. Your cast came off on your second birthday, so it's been a little over a week. Already you have re-learned to sit up (the cast has been holding you up for four months, so it makes sense that you got used to the support), to crawl (though you still favor the army…Continue

i am attempting to bring every single thing that tommy consents to eat in hopes that i can use it to calm him, keep popping ears at bay and also to feed him as we will be flying at lunch…Continue
