Throwing a Great 1st Birthday Party

September 8, 2013

One thing that parents seem to look forward to with a new baby, is the big First Birthday.  For us, it’s not as much about the kid, as it is about surviving that crazy, sleep deprived, year full of other firsts.  With the twins, we went a little above and beyond what we would normally […]

O-oh here she comes.

July 28, 2013

On Friday, I had the earliest ultrasound I have ever had. My due date was moved back two days, I got to see our teeny tiny, and hear a little heartbeat. It was awesome. I’ve been sinking into that constant nausea that slowly takes over and envelopes every movement, every breath, every second of the […]

You know what they say about plans…

July 20, 2013

35 is tricky. At least it seems to be for me. On one hand, we are finally in a house, feeling settled. On the other hand, my body is starting to rev up for the big change. Or so I thought. Apparently the ladies in my family all have biological clocks that expire in the […]

Helloooo Out There!

June 14, 2013

Well, it’s been awhile. I have to say, there were many days when all I wanted to do was sit down and write, but time was just not on my side. Here are the high (and low) points: We bought a house!  We closed on the 31st and have been in full-on moving mode ever […]

I Thought I Lost my Kid.

May 1, 2013

Right now I am sitting at my dining room table, trying to figure out how in the world I am going to get this house packed up. I can’t get the dishes done without Judah running out the backdoor, let alone do work where I need to be sorting and organizing and getting rid of […]

Is it Friday yet?

April 18, 2013

I seriously need it to be Friday.  And I need Friday to be GOOD. This week we had… Monday, which brought clarity to the fact that you should never trust someone who switches between his landlord, investor, and businessman hats so frequently.  Also: people who think the phrase “I’m putting my (fill in the blank) […]

Spoiler Alert: We Just Bought a House!

April 16, 2013

It has been a really, really, really, exhausting and LONG 10 days. Two Saturdays ago we were informed that our neighbors were putting their house on the market.  It’s totally gorgeous, in a desirable neighborhood, in a seller’s market, so it of course sold in about 16 seconds.  Our landlord emailed us letting us know […]

Support, not Silence.

April 5, 2013

1 in 88. 1 in 54. 1 in 50. These are the numbers that have swirled around the Autism community for the past year or so.  That 1 in 54 is important to me because it most closely represents us- 1 in 54 boys will be diagnosed with Autism.  At least that is the finding […]

Don’t be Captain Obvious

March 12, 2013

There are few things that irk me more than when a pregnant woman complains of morning sickness and someone tells her to eat a Saltine before she gets out of bed in the morning. Is there anyone in the world that does not know this trick?  If you have read a book, seen a movie, […]

March 8, 2013

I used to host the Breastfeeding Blog Hop and every Thursday was my night to sit down and dish about the ups and downs of nursing.  I handed the reigns over to the lovely ladies at Sisters n’ Cloth and Life of Wife, Mummy, and Nurse this past summer but I still get a hefty […]
