So this baby isn’t even here yet, but I want to be prepared for his arrival. Because the kiddos will only be 18 months apart, then I know that a double stroller is imperative! It’s one thing to feel like you can’t get out and about, but it’s another thing if you actually can’t get […]

As Savannah turned one, her will and opinion also turned on. She has responded well to discipline, and she definitely understands no now. The hardest part about this stage is not knowing how much she understands.  I’m realizing that she understands a lot more than I think she does.  She has had one huge meltdown […]

Part of Savannah’s routine before bedtime is cuddle time.  It only lasts a few minutes, but it is definitely one of the sweetest moments of the day. She usually wants to lay on your chest and she’ll pat your arm ever so sweetly.  Tonight I took my time and decided to cherish the moment.  Just […]

In the past 13+ months, there have been several moments that have just hit me like a ton of bricks saying, “You are a mom!”  Today was one big moment, that actually started about 2am.  She went to bed as usual, then as the night progressed, her stirrings and fussy moments increased. At 10pm, I […]

This past Friday, before the day had truly gotten underway, I learned 2 lessons.  In hopes of others not having to learn the same lessons, I thought I would share. First of all, diapers do have a capacity limit.  I knew this must be true, but I didn’t really know where that marker was.  Surprisingly, […]

It’s crazy how some days I forget that I’m pregnant, and then there are others that all I feel is “pregnant”.  It’s not that I feel the baby move all day, it’s the extra weight, indigestion, and fatigue that creates the “pregnant” feeling.  I love it though.  I prefer feeling pregnant, rather than being pregnant […]

Savannah’s made it 14 months and 6 days without any injuries (that’s how old she is).  Today we drove out to Spring Hill for a playdate with Savannah’s friend from church, Delaney.  The girls are only a month apart, so they have a lot in common.  They get to play together at the nursery at […]
