Sibling Love

On April 23, 2012 By

Today gave me yet another precious mini milestone. After I picked up both kids at daycare I was sitting in the car calling the Dr. office to ask a question. I wasn’t particularly paying attention to the little ones in the backseat, but nothing sounded too off. After I hung up the phone I listened [...]

A Mommy Milestone

On April 10, 2012 By

I have had one of the most proud moments. I have reached a mommy milestone that I have honestly looked forward to for so long.

I knew the day would come eventually, but I didn’t expect it so soon. I thought maybe it would be when Big Brother was 3 or 4. Lots of [...]

2 Years!

On July 26, 2011 By

2 years have gone by. 2 whole years. It was a wonderful day for everyone. The weather cooperated beautifully, G was in a good mood and fun was had all around.

We decided to go with a very basic theme for his birthday this year. Balloons! Monkeys and cars will be around for a [...]

A Tale of Two Pukes

On March 22, 2011 By

So dear friends, we have had our first bout with toddler puke. It was horrific to say the least.

Now, I must preface this by letting you know that D and I don’t throw up. I have only thrown up once since I was 11. Seriously. And D has only thrown up once the entire time [...]

Two Little Feet

On September 21, 2010 By

Two feet and ten toes. Two feet to carry him where he goes.

A bit wobbly yes, but he doesn’t care. His goal is elsewhere.

New shoes to make his day, let him run and play.

New shoes.

   

 

There is a tradition [...]

Running With Scissors

On September 14, 2010 By

Or at least it felt like it.
I finally bit the bullet and cut Little G’s hair. I did it.
It was a tough but necessary moment.
When he was eating (and using food as hair gel) his hair had turned into an Einstein look alike.

Here goes the [...]

A Room of His Own

On September 8, 2010 By

Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray!

Little G has moved into his own room. Weeee! (that’s the sound of me dancing with joy). He now has his own little space. Completely baby proofed, warmer than our room and a place for all his books. Fantastic.
For me, that means I have half of my bedroom [...]

It’s All in the Details

On August 1, 2010 By

Before I had a child I thought I knew how they changed. Now though I see that it is all much more subtle than that.

Sure there are the big moments. There’s the first word, the first smile, the first steps ( still waiting on that one). But, everyday there are a million tiny changes [...]

1 Year

On July 28, 2010 By

1 year. Wow! It has been a whole year since Little G has come in to our lives. It’s hard to even remember what it was like before him. I don’t miss it though. Not one bit.

D and I took our time being selfish before we had him. We had reached a point in [...]
