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.

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!

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.

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.”

38 weeks with Baby B

Has it really been 3 weeks since I last posted? Oops… I guess life just gets in the way sometimes. Between all the hospital visits and Nora not sleeping…I don’t even know where the last few weeks have gone.
