If you ever thought you had the most bountiful amount of patience… Have a baby. They will test it beyond belief without even knowing it. They also test your sanity (which I believe goes hand in hand with patience). They make you question everything you do and didn’t do. Continue reading

I Don’t Wanna Grow Up…
…I’m a Toys R Us kid! Am I the only one sad about the ending of an era? And the fact that my child will never understand the greatness of what used to be toy heaven? No? Okay then. Guess it’s a good thing she’s so little and doesn’t have to worry about it. Continue reading
I’ve Got Friends in Low Places
So low it’s like they don’t exist. Kind of like imaginary friends that you talk to, but they don’t talk back. Oh wait, they aren’t imaginary? Well shit, I thought I had officially lost my mind. Continue reading

Sure, there are plenty of books on how to change a diaper, when to feed solids, or how to give your baby a bath.

Do What’s Best, Do What’s Natural
While being a mom is hard, there’s a close second that comes to mind: breastfeeding. You want to do what’s natural and the utmost best for your baby, but it comes with practice. And lots of it.
You Can Stop Growing Now
To say fourth months was rough would be an understatement. Never again in my life will I say babies have it easy. The amount of mental developments going on inside their little brains make so much sense now as to why they’re fussy or moody. Continue reading
Baby, Grow Old With Me
“When does she start getting fun?” is the question my husband jokingly asked one evening during one of Bailee’s witching hour montages. I just smiled at him and said, “What’s not fun about a fussy baby?!” Continue reading
