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.

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.

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.

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.

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”
