Kiss More Often

I haven't written in a long time.  Not because I have nothing to say, but because I literally feel like I have fought a war at the end of every day.  By the time I take care of the tiny person all day, do whatever household tasks need done, tend to the dogs, take care... Continue Reading →

Lessons Learned

I have been a mommy to the cutest little lady on the planet for almost 16 months.  It's been an incredibly rewarding adventure that I am so glad I embarked upon.  But, it has also been insanely exhausting, mind-numbingly routine, occasionally lonely, and beyond mentally taxing.  I think this goes without saying, but being a...

The Biggest Let Down was No Let Down

My baby girl is 14 months old, and our relationship is evolving quickly.  She's so incredibly independent, and not relying on me for certain things every day.  One of the things that I have been mentally preparing for is her weaning from breastfeeding.  With her coming to me less and less, I'm making much less...

These days, I'm nostalgic. My sweet baby girl is now 10 months old, and every day is a new adventure for her.  In the last week she has learned how to turn on and off the tv with the remote, climb in and out of her rocking chair, work the recliner, pet the dog in... Continue Reading →

Fleeting Moments

Today, as I was chasing my astoundingly fast crawling 8 month old, I chuckled to myself. The things I could not wait for her to do are so amazing, but what I wouldn't give to have my sleepy, calm, baby back at times.   And then it hit me....I am going to always be excited... Continue Reading →
