For Nathan’s baby dedication, we attended a class at church. The parents in the group are mostly much younger than we are. All of their children are little ones. We were asked how parenting has changed us. A couple of them said they didn’t have any trouble with babies, but as the children are growing […]

Merino Kids Sleep Sack~Review

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

  I was contacted by Merino Kids and asked to review their sleep sack. Sleep sacks weren’t really anything I knew about when James was a baby, but I had been thinking that I needed to find a few for winter  for Nathan. Our home is cool and we live in cold country so I […]

I saw this on a blog this morning and decided it would be the perfect way for me to get something posted. I mentioned before that I think of many things to post and then by the time I have time to sit down at the computer, I forget what I wanted to write! waking […]

This & That

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

*I don’t accomplish much around here but taking care of baby and trying to keep the house from looking like a total disaster. I’m ok with that. *I LOVE hearing little baby noises. *The wrap I purchased from a local mom is the best $ I’ve ever spent. Baby is on me right now as […]

Back To The Eating Plan

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

When I was pregnant, I gained a lot of weight. We’re talking a lot! I wasn’t trying to gain weight but it happened. The midwife told me that often moms who’ve recently lost weight tend to gain quickly while pregnant. After baby was born, I was retaining a LOT of fluid for many weeks. Actually, […]

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Shortly before the baby was born, Brandilyn Collins offered a copy of her new book for reviewers. I asked her if it was ok to review it after baby and she graciously agreed. I wasn’t expecting all the things that came with my recovery but I finally read it. It’s actually the first book I […]

Recently, I heard someone share a trial they’ve endured in their family. I just kept thinking, “I can’t imagine. That would be so heartbreaking.” They said, “I wouldn’t have chosen this but it drew me closer to God and has made me who I am today.” Well, that sounds familiar. I know I’ve said that […]

The Baby Room

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

This morning, Bible study started at church again. I really enjoy going to the study and decided we were packing up and going. I enjoyed chatting with some ladies before it started. I also got to show off the baby to some friends who hadn’t seen him yet. During the study, I couldn’t take notes […]

Holiday Weekend

Monday, September 2nd, 2013

Lee made it home–yeah! He was out for almost 2 weeks. That’s the most he’s been gone since Nathan arrived. It’s so nice to have another adult around. I can get a few more things done and it’s just nice to have him around anyway. We really didn’t do anything special. We’re taking it easy […]
