Great Trip

Well, we are back to the grind after a lovely May Long Weekend at my parent’s house.  Gosh, it’s so stinking beautiful out there.  So quiet and the air smells so nice.  It still feels like home to me. My parents were AMAZING in making their house 100% peanut free for us.  They just took […]

Brothers

You know, there’s something I’ve really been taking delight in lately. It’s the bond that Silas and Isaac are forming. It’s how much they actually care for each other. It’s such a beautiful sight. Silas has been a great big brother thus far. He accepted Isaac into our home and seemed to somehow (primal instinct?) […]

Stay Like This

I love your beautiful cheeks, they get so darn rosy. I press them against mine and hold you tightly and rock back and forth. The flood of warmth fills my core and I feel painfully and intoxicatingly in love with you. Gosh it hurts. I love your eyes, how they look so much like mine […]

Passionate for Laundry

Don’t worry folks.  I am alive!!  I couldn’t blog on Thursday and Friday because I was in the company of some very dear friends and family and, sorry to say, I’d rather hang out with my loved ones than blog every day! Both of my boys are in bed, at least one is confirmed as […]

Sprinkler Fun

Yesterday marked the very first time I watered my very own lawn. Silas joined in on the festivities and we came out with these wonderful photos of him in all his glory.   What I didn’t realize during is that while he was enjoying this water bottle, he was also pooping. Then he touched it. […]

Silas The Brave

This morning I woke up at 6:30 to a toddler who, again, did not want to play in his crib.  Woe is me.  We did have an amazing cuddle in my bed which slightly made up for the fact that I was losing out on some precious sleep.  Once we were up, I opened the […]

This and That

Ah, wonderful sunshine.  I just sat on my deck for a bit and soaked in some rays while they lasted.  It really helps the mood that’s for sure.  Silas is still out there playing and singing.  Sometimes when he’s out there he shouts “WEEEE” or “EIEIO” very loudly.  I’m sure the people on the street […]

New Leaf

Spring is sure a nice time to be in my nesting phase. I seem to be inspired easily these days and I don’t know if it’s because we’ve actually had a few moments of sunshine or if it’s just all the beautiful flowering trees everywhere. I probably would be right to just chalk it up […]

Swimming, Napping and a Potty.

So I went to the doc yesterday.  It was a fine experience except that he got mad at me for not napping.  I had a nap today, I hope he’s happy.  My pee was fine, my blood pressure was fine, my weight was….fine….I guess.  Napping is important so I’ve started even though I’m not the […]

16 Months Old

I just realized that Silas is now 16 months old.  Oh to have a birthday every month, I guess we’ve all been through it though.  I can’t believe the changes that happen from month to month.  This past month his vocabulary has really taken off.  He’s learned up, down, shower, water, food, hungry, nose, eyes, […]

What I Love About You

My darling Silas, I’ve known you for almost 16 months and I must say, you’ve impacted my life in a way no one else has. You turned my world upside-down and I wouldn’t have it any other way. You’ve shown me that I’m not as selfish as I thought I was and that I can […]

Dealing With A Toddler’s Tantrums

I’m a tough love kind of person. I’m very tender and very loving towards people but I’m also a bit tough about certain things, I get it from my mom. When it comes to Silas’ tantrums, my first instinct is to say “too bad” and walk away. My mother-in-law pointed out to me that my […]

Taking Matters Into my Own Hands

Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands. My husband has this problem, his fingers cannot feel a hard mass in muscle tissue therefore he can’t really help me work out my knots in my back. I’m sure there’s a name for this condition of his. Anyway, my back REALLY hurts from […]

Hug a Chiropractor

I love my chiropractor!  Not in a romantical way of course, just in a “you fixed my body and I love you” way.  It’s taken two visits and I’m almost completely fixed of my sciatic and back problems.  I still have some hip pain but that’s just my arthritis dealing with my joints being loose […]

A Good Mood Day

Silas has been in SUCH a good mood so far today.  I don’t know what to do with it.  I keep thinking I’m going to jinx it somehow!  There wasn’t any fussing or hanging or whining or smashing of faces on the floor.  It’s been a lovely morning, perhaps it’s because the sun is actually […]
