Ikey is three months old today. Man I wish I had a birthday every month. That’d be so cool. So now I guess I fill you in on all things Ikey. Right now he’s sitting in his bouncy chair in a stripped onsie that his cousin Cornelius wore 10 years ago. The bouncy chair almost… Continue reading Happy Birthday Isaac!!
Category: breast feeding
I have a sensory experience that I’ve set up for you all. This requires no tools and you’ll actually get to SMELL Isaac. Who’s excited? Let’s begin: take a finger and insert it into your belly button, now move it around and create some friction for some heat. Do this for about and minute and… Continue reading Mung
Who Are You People?
I love 2″ faux wood blinds, they’re beautiful. They’re nestled perfectly into my windows now, blocking out the sun and the people who’ve been spying on me while I’ve been nursing these past 20 days. Issac is happily munching on my right boob and I have a little bowl of Oreo ice cream that I’m… Continue reading Who Are You People?
Here’s to Consistency.
After a million “no”‘s, a thousand time outs, loads of tears and a lot of frustration; Silas seems to have stopped hitting. He does a teeny tiny bit but nothing major. The one major thing I’ve learned thus far is that no matter what, you need to be consistent. I’ve won a couple battles that… Continue reading Here’s to Consistency.
My Kids Hate Me
Well, another day here in our new home and I’m loving it here!! It’s so much cooler living near the ground!! We need new blinds pronto though. There’s nothing on our sliding glass doors and it freaks me out when I’m nursing at night. I’m too scared to turn the TV on because then someone… Continue reading My Kids Hate Me
Ok so anyone else have a baby who gets milk streaming out of his nose when breastfeeding? Yes, streaming. Like it’s going in his mouth and then straight out his nose. And no, he’s not laughing. I do have a tendancy to have things come out of my nose. Especially when I’m with Courtenay. She’s… Continue reading Breastfeeding Frustrations
Don’t Worry, I’m Happy!
Isaac is completely delicious today. He was in his bouncy chair giggling to himself this morning. He’s such an easy little muffin. I just put him on his tummy for tummy time and he’s just laying there all relaxed. He’s falling asleep. K he was falling asleep. He’s stirring now. I really couldn’t have asked… Continue reading Don’t Worry, I’m Happy!
I feel yucky. I can’t tell if I have a clogged duct or mastitis. I do have a low fever and a red painful spot on my boob but the spot isn’t warm nor lumpy. It hasn’t gotten worse in the last 24 hours so I’m not sure if I should go to my doc. … Continue reading Blah
So, I Have 9 Nipples
Nine nipples?? What an awkward title hey? You’re probably wondering what the heck I’m talking about?? Read on and you’ll know. Wow, it has been two years since my boobs have been leaking. They started the day before my first trimester was over with Silas and they haven’t stopped, not once. I went from an… Continue reading So, I Have 9 Nipples
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,… Continue reading 16 Months Old
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… Continue reading What I Love About You
Canucks Game Tonight!
So I read up on it and yes, there is a hormone that comes back into play in your third trimester that can make you ill. Just my luck hey? Last pregnancy I was still barfing everyday at this point so I didn’t notice. I’m not even close to barfing, I’m just feeling icky. I… Continue reading Canucks Game Tonight!
The Conclusion of the Odor
After finishing yesterday’s post I bravely ventured to my closet, opened the door and looked in. The stench really hit me and I was frightened. I thought I would just do a quick surface scan of the closet to see if I could spot what the horrible odor was coming from. I saw shoes and… Continue reading The Conclusion of the Odor
So this morning I faced the dreaded gestational diabetes test. The test where they make you drink this disgusting bring orange pop and then make you sit for a whole hour only to stab you and take your blood. The blood taking is always my favorite part (Ya I’m weird but I totally enjoy it. … Continue reading Special Pop
Bye Bye Boobies
This morning Silas slept through his usual nursing time, I usually will nurse him whenever he wakes up but today I didn’t. I just brought him some toys, put on Black Eyed Peas for him and went back to bed (I love that about my son). He was fine and hasn’t seemed to miss it… Continue reading Bye Bye Boobies
