This week's to do list? Shopping preschools! What? Did I just say that? How did my baby get old enough to go to preschool? I'm fighting the whole thing, actually. I know Baby Girl will love it! I know that the needs the socialization, especially since we don't have any play dates or get-togethers right now. But...for some reason I'm struggling with it. Here are the waring sides: 1. Mama wants ...
I know it's tough in a lot of ways, but this week it's the weaning process. Buddy is still breastfed. As of a month ago he was eating 6 times a day. We're now down to 3 or 4. The problem is that two of the feedings are after he's in bed. He eats at 9 and then again early morning. The early morning was 6, then he'd go back ...
My man came through for me! Here's Buddy's first year in a nutshell. Enjoy!
Tuesday night my Facebook status was "A month ago yesterday my man left for Texas. Saturday our belongings left for Texas. Tonight my car left for Texas. The kids and I are getting anxious to follow next week!" Let me tell you, this transition hasn't been easy. Don't get me wrong; it's been full of great times! We've made wonderful memories with my parents. We've seen friends, gone to cookouts, visited family. ...
Today we're celebrating Buddy's birthday. I can't believe it's almost been a year since his birth! He brings so much joy and laughter into our lives. We're still in Connecticut, so I decided to throw a party with my friends and family. I don't know the next time I'll be able to celebrate with people I know so well. So, even though it's his first birthday, I'm throwing a pretty big ...
*I wrote this several days ago. I forgot to post it. We've been busy (more on that later). Baby Girl had a wonderful day today! Yay! Baby Girl still struggles with the adjustments and being away from Daddy. I am at a loss as to what to do for her. The only thing I know is to be patient and love her. Some days I do that much better than others. I ...
My Buddy boy has made me smile for 11 months now! I can't believe we're heading towards his first birthday! I am amazed at how quickly the time is passing! Buddy continues to keep me on my toes. I told my man that it's been a long time since I have been this tired. Combine early mornings with non-stop chasing all day and I am asleep when my head hits the ...
I know it's sort of expected to write a post about motherhood on Mother's Day. What can I say? I am not the most "unexpected" person in the world. Besides, as I begin this adventure of single parenting for the next several weeks, I am thinking more about being a mom and the responsibility it is. Before I was a mom I was a student and then a special ed teacher. ...
Sweet Baby Girl. I love you so much! You are thoughtful, sweet, funny, and so much more! This move has been hard on you (side note: thanks to Mama's friends for the good advice. Even if she's still struggling, I feel much better about how I'm handling it! Thank you!) You are overwhelmed. Almost every day you ask if the truck is coming today. I know you're excited and nervous. ...
Buddy, you are ten months old now! I can't believe how close we are to celebrating your first birthday. I had such grand plans for an awesome party. Now we'll be in transition and I have no idea if we'll have a party, if we'll be with Dada, or if we'll have any friends or family there. But somehow we'll do something special for your birthday. It's a big day ...
