32 Weeks – So Close but so Far

Officially due next month, which sounds insane to me when I put it that way. About 8 more weeks to go! I still don’t know if it’s going by fast or not. I still have a million and one things to do and not much motivation to do any of them. It’s like I’m stressedContinue reading “32 Weeks – So Close but so Far”

30 weeks – The Countdown is on

Another day another Dr’s appointment, or blood test, or shot, it’s always something. I’m actually writing this while I sit in the hospital waiting room. I just had a blood test and I need to wait for the blood bank. Because of my blood type I need to get the WinRho shot. I figured nowContinue reading “30 weeks – The Countdown is on”

27 Week Update

Well! A lot has happened since my last update at 20 weeks. I was on bed rest, off bed rest, had a baby shower, and packed up my condo to move out in the next few days. First up is bed rest. I noticed I was leaking a watery substance and thought it might beContinue reading “27 Week Update”

Half Baked – 20 Week Update

Well, we have officially reached the halfway mark. I have my ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow so we can find out the gender and they will do the anatomy scan. To say I am nervous is an understatement. I just want everything to be okay, I don’t really care what the gender will be but IContinue reading “Half Baked – 20 Week Update”

Surprise! I’m Pregnant this Time

Y’all I don’t know who is more surprised by this pregnancy but let me tell you, its been rough. Though it may have taken us by surprise, the excitement has been growing with each week that goes by.

Child-Led Potty Training

When I first became a mother, potty training was the thing I dreaded the most. We constantly heard stories of how difficult and messy it was, and there was so much pressure to have a child fully trained by a certain age. There were horror stories of training too early, and what would happen ifContinue reading “Child-Led Potty Training”

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”
