Thoughts on Life with Two Kids

When we decided to try for a second kid, I really felt like I was taking a bit of a gamble with our future. I knew I wanted a sibling for Sully, but I wasn’t sure about going through the newborn stage again, or adding more work to our already challenging days with a toddler. […]

Baby on Board

We’ve talked about getting a bike seat for Sully for months, but just never got around to doing the research and picking one out. Well, as of this weekend, we finally got the ball rolling with our very first bike ride with Sully on board! My parents gave Pete the bike seat a few weeks ago for […]

Back to “School”: a Rocky but Promising Start

We are three weeks into Sully’s first “school year”. He began a Mother’s Day Out program (half days, four days a week) in September. There have been a few bumps along the way (he’s already on his second illness since starting the program), but overall I’d say it’s going amazingly! I expected tears and heartbreaking […]

17 Months Old

Sully will be 18 months old in a week, but I have to squeeze my blog updates in when I can, so I’m not going to risk waiting another week to post and then not find the time to do it! Phew. It’s been a crazy month. When I am in the middle of a […]

My Easy Cloth Diaper Routine

Easy Cloth Diapering

Before I even got pregnant I had plans to cloth diaper. I had no idea what I was getting into, but I will admit just picking out cloth diapers and coming up with a wash routine sounded fun to me. So, once I got pregnant, I registered for cloth diapers and bought them periodically in the months […]

My First Night Away from Sully

This weekend was a major milestone for Sully and me. Pete and I took an overnight trip to Austin, TX while his parents watched Sully. Sully’s never spent the night without us, and I’ve never been away from him for more than six hours. I was definitely ready for a break, though, after 16 months […]

Mother’s Day Weekend Recap

This past weekend was my second Mother’s Day as a mom. I had a fun, busy weekend. Saturday was pretty typical weekend stuff, taking care of errands, getting a hair cut, going to the grocery. Pete gave me my Mother’s Day present one day early, and I LOVE it. It’s a new diaper bag/carryall from Storq. […]

15 Months Old

Sully turned 15 months old this past month. We have seen some pretty huge changes lately, the biggest being that he is now a walking baby! He started walking around 14.5 months old. Once he took his first steps it was only another week before he started walking laps around the house. I was amazed […]

Where I’ve Been

I took a four month hiatus from blogging, and now I’m back! Life got really busy with juggling freelance work and taking care of a now 14-month-old (can you believe it?!). Naps also became short and irregular for a couple months there. They are still short, actually, but he seems to be taking them more […]

The Perks of an Early Bedtime

The Perks of an Early Bedtime

Sully is not one of those babies that slept through the night at six weeks old…or even six months old. I’ve always been jealous of moms whose babies did this on their own. He is a very frequent nurser and would nurse every 2 hours or more, day and night. The lack of sleep took […]
