I was running late to the doctor’s office this morning. It’s hard to time Owen’s feeding exactly right so he wouldn’t cry too much while I’m away. My heart was pounding. My mind was scattered. It reminded me of what it was like to have an anxiety attack. Today marks the conclusion of six weeks of home […]
After practicing pooping together for the last few days we moved on to pooping without diapers today! I was able to catch four out of five poops with a plastic bin. More air time = happier baby. Pooping is a very exciting part of any new parenthood. Everyone is obsessed with how many and what color. There […]
Peter, being the nonexpressive and uncommunicative person that he is, didn’t get me anything for Mother’s Day or even wished me Happy Mother’s Day early enough before I threw a full tantrum. My mom always said the kind of person you marry dictates the kind of life you live. Peter is not the most romantic […]
Getting an MRI is kind like having a spa treatment. You lay perfectly still in a metal tube but instead of soothing music you get a series of extremely loud banning and rapid fire clicking sounds, instead of a warm space with mood lighting you get a freezing and sterile room.

The little guy is able to entertain himself by focusing on objects, playing with his hands and putting things near his mouth. But that doesn’t […]
Peter came to meet me at Strawberry Field exactly a year ago today with a backpack. He was clueless. I was reckless. Today he is on the floor with Owen for tummy time. What a year it has been! It wasn’t all pretty but somehow we’re still here and now plus one.
A morning walk turned into an 11 and half mile trek around the neighborhood. I traveled light this time and carried Owen in a Connecta carrier without a loaded pack. I came across this particular carrier on a local trade group on FB. Unlike all of the other soft structures carriers we’ve seen at Babywearing […]
People say kids grow up fast and Owen is no exception. We just passed the two-month mark but given how much has happened since Owen was born I can’t really say time has flown by. However, the little guy has grown quite a bit. He weighed 11 pounds and 7 ounces at the pedestrian’s office yesterday, 35 […]
