Gentle Parenting: The Quiet Spot

I’ve been itching to share my recent love and practicing of Gentle Parenting but it is so wide and complex I figured I could break it down into sections instead. I’m not going to go into detail of what gentle parenting is as it is quite explanatory and I don’t necessarily follow it all. YouContinue reading “Gentle Parenting: The Quiet Spot”

A Letter to my Second Born on his First Birthday

This letter is going to be a little different from your sisters because if I’m being completly honest here, I don’t remember your every move like I did Nora’s. I didn’t have time to write an update every month, and I didn’t spend most of my days just watching you. This doesnt mean I loveContinue reading “A Letter to my Second Born on his First Birthday”

My experiences with sleep training vs co sleeping

*I took out my research/speculations/opinions on sleep training to avoid conflict. That isn’t the point of this post. I originally started this post because I felt the need to explain myself. To justify myself. Society tells us that we are wrong for co sleeping. That it is dangerous. We are judged and told that weContinue reading “My experiences with sleep training vs co sleeping”

Bubble Foam Sensory Activity

Now that Benjamin is becoming more independent, I’m finding myself looking for things to do. At first I told myself I should clean more, but then it dawned on me that this is the perfect time to spend some quality time with my babes. I know once Benji starts moving, it’s going to get chaotic.Continue reading “Bubble Foam Sensory Activity”

Benjamin’s Diagnosis

So I know within the last few months I’ve written about how Baby B is always sick, throwing up, being congested, etc., well we finally know what’s going on! I know it may not seem like a big deal to most, but for the last half of a year, Benjamin has spent it in ourContinue reading “Benjamin’s Diagnosis”

Where did my babies go?!

If you follow us on Instagram I apologize profusely for all the times I said I was going to write this post and then didn’t… life has just been so crazy! I know it sounds like excuse after excuse but it just doesn’t make sense. Sick babies and problems and birthdays and so many socialContinue reading “Where did my babies go?!”

Benji’s 4 month update

Baby B is officially 4 months old, already! Considering I only did his 3 month update like a few weeks ago, not much has changed developmentally, but we did have a doctors visit last week. Benjamin weighs 13.9 pounds which puts him in the 15th percentile. He is tiny and dropped a curve but hisContinue reading “Benji’s 4 month update”

Ollie the Owl Review

Last year when Nora was going through the same 4 month leap/regression that Benji is going through right now, I always just overlooked the idea of a sound machine. Even though many parents swore by it, I didn’t want my baby to have another dependency item. Well lack of sleep and the regression are muchContinue reading “Ollie the Owl Review”

A Normal Day with 2U2

Usually I would like to say we wing how our days goes and go with the flow depending on the babies moods but this week I noticed we are settling into a comfortable routine. Obviously everyday isn’t the best day and sometimes all we do is watch tv but I really strive to make theContinue reading “A Normal Day with 2U2”

Valentine’s Day sensory bin

I’ve been wanting to try this activity for awhile but I wanted to wait until Nora was out of the “put everything in her mouth” stage. She’s been much better lately and she’s so curious so what better time than a holiday! I love doing theme activities. Nora absolutely loves food so I decided toContinue reading “Valentine’s Day sensory bin”
