I had 8 glorious uninterrupted hours of sleep last night – seriously note worthty!
A friend of mine on the weekend who ran into a new dad we know recently remarked to me that they looked tired – really tired – I think he said something along the lines of ‘he never believed me when [...]
I have a few friends right now who are trying to conceive (TTC) and having less luck than they had anticipated. Their challenges are reminding me of our own rocky road to conceiving our Bunny. I know personally how hard it is to stay sane, calm and zen about trying to get [...]
One day she’ll be a teenager, she’ll come home and close her door and close me out. She’ll be frighteningly beautiful and condescending, she’ll wear the clothes she sneaks out of the house in her bag, and she’ll think she is smarter than her dad and me. She won’t want to talk to me or hug me [...]
About a month ago my girl said shoes, that’s right shoes. She was carrying around one of my shoes and kept trying to put it down and step into it – and when I asked her what she was doing with my shoe she looked up at me and said shoes, four or five times [...]

There are a a few factors that have come together to create the scenario in which my formerly sleep-12-hrs-in-a-row baby has come to be wake-4-times-overnight girl…
Milk crisis – my milk was low and she was hungry – this started when she was about 7 months and I was getting up with her at least [...]
So the update on the breastfeeding challenges… She’s fine – I’m fine – I need to make more milk and she needs to put on a few extra ounces…
I’m taking a 2 prong approach to the making more milk thing – both natural and chemical. I hate the chemical line of this approach – [...]
Yesterday was a rainy Sunday here – we spent the first half of the day enjoying the lovely warm weather – raked some of last fall’s leaves up and went for a family walk through the Glebe… Really it was nice to just be outside and together, and so nice not to worry about whether [...]
