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.

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. I’m not going to lie or sugar coat it but I was terrified when I found out.Continue reading “Surprise! I’m Pregnant this Time”

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”

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.

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”

“All Your Perfects” Book Review

I love to read. I love the escape from reality and I haven’t been making much time for it lately. So when I came across this new Colleen Hoover book, I knew I just had to read it. Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors because her books are usually full of sap andContinue reading ““All Your Perfects” Book Review”

GROWING instead of CHANGING.

I was going to talk about how crazy the holidays were with our two under two but as I sat here thinking about what to write, I realized I shouldn’t be complaining. Yes, it was chaotic but we are so overly blessed to be surrounded by so much family and friends, and you know what?Continue reading “GROWING instead of CHANGING.”
