Sleeping Babies

I often find myself in my kid’s rooms every night, staring at their faces, trying to kiss them and smell them as much as possible without waking them up. There’s nothing as adorable as a sleeping child so I try to somehow embed their image in my mind so I can remember it later. The… Continue reading Sleeping Babies

No Longer a One-Trick Pony

Well, it’s happening. Ikey is gracefully sliding into a….well…a person. He’s no longer just some leech that wiggles and sucks me dry. He’s actually doing quite a lot. Much to my obvious dismay. He’s mastered our stair case and will b-line his way to it at any open opportunity. He’s does the whole thing with… Continue reading No Longer a One-Trick Pony

A Mother’s Love

I get this feeling every night as I sneak into my children’s room and tuck them in while they sleep.  I feel completely and totally vulnerable.  For some reason seeing my sleeping children remind me of how delicate they are, how easily they could slip from my fingers.  My hear suddenly fills with this feeling… Continue reading A Mother’s Love

My Fat, Fat Isaac

I’m a little late on writing the blog today.  Isaac had a good, long nurse and fell asleep.  I didn’t want to put him down after.  It’s so nice to kiss a baby’s lips when they’re sleeping.  Their breath smells so sweet and their lips and all soft and squishy.  I swear my kids both… Continue reading My Fat, Fat Isaac

Dearest Isaac

Oh my Ikey darling, how your frustrate me so.  With your “special” whine and your aversion to my bosoms.  You cry whenever I leave your sight and you insist on sleeping with me at night, you wouldn’t have it any other way.  Oh Isaac, you’ve been constantly drooling and pooping these past few weeks.  Your… Continue reading Dearest Isaac

Little Ball of Sunshine.

I swear my son is a little ball of sunshine and he’ll forever light up a room when he walks in.  I know I complain a lot about his short temper but when he’s not tantruming he really is this little ball of sunshine and he’s constantly making me smile…or pine for his delicious lips… Continue reading Little Ball of Sunshine.

1 Week and 4 Days Left

Well, the baby is still inside of me.  I was hoping he’d come out yesterday but I guess he’s content to stay put for a while longer.  He’s welcome to come out now, I’m feeling very warm feelings towards him and Brent’s feeling ready for him to be out too.  Yesterday I tried some traditional… Continue reading 1 Week and 4 Days Left

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

Mushy and Gushy and Squishy and Lovey

I’m in such a honeymoon phase right now with my son. I’m all mushy and gushy and squishy and lovey about him lately. I guess by that you can conclude that he’s sleeping OK lately! I’m just constantly surprised that I can love someone SO much and that selfish little Leah isn’t so selfish anymore.… Continue reading Mushy and Gushy and Squishy and Lovey
