Goodbye 2020

I don’t even know the words to describe my 2020. While it was an absolute mess, I feel like a lot of good came from it for me and I really changed as a person. I did some serious adulting and have really been working on getting my act together. Do you usually start withContinue reading “Goodbye 2020”

My Baby Boy Turns 2

This day was so much harder than I thought it would be. Not only because you are my baby, but because you have changed so much in the past few months and it forces me to think about it. You have gone from needing me, holding me, and being close to me 24/7 to thisContinue reading “My Baby Boy Turns 2”

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”

Simple Christmas Sensory Bin

When I originally thought about doing a Christmas sensory bin, I had all these elaborate thoughts about what we would put in it and so on. But when I went to the Dollar store this week I found nothing I was looking for, so this will have to do (for now.) I forgot to dyeContinue reading “Simple Christmas Sensory Bin”

Benjamin’s 10 month update

Benjamin turned 10 months old last week but we had a doctors appointment yesterday so I wanted to wait to hear the results before writing a blog post. So at 10 months old, Benji has 4 teeth (two top, two bottom,) says the words “dada,” “nana,” “num num,” and very occasionally the word “mama.” HeContinue reading “Benjamin’s 10 month update”

Benji’s 9 month update

9 months is always a biggie…how is it that our babies have been on the outside world for as long as they were inside us?! It always perplexes me! The last 9 months have felt like a whirlwind. It doesn’t help that the first 6 are pretty much a blur…but my little man has taughtContinue reading “Benji’s 9 month update”

Benji’s 7 & 8 month updates

I think I’m getting worse at these monthly updates but I seriously don’t see the time pass by. I’m going to try and remember what happened at 7 month vs 8 but looking back at Benjamin’s 6 month one, so much has changed. I feel like with each milestone it was a veryyy slow progressContinue reading “Benji’s 7 & 8 month updates”

Planning a Bridal Shower

My brother got married earlier this summer so there have been a whole lot of wedding talk and oh so many events! I was a bridesmaid and attended everything but I got to plan the bridal shower. Or is it a wedding shower? It’s not the bachelorette party and I know not everyone has theseContinue reading “Planning a Bridal Shower”

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”
