I’ve decided to write my blogs at an earlier time. I always have 30 mins at the computer in the morning in front of my light therapy thingie. I’m finding when I write when both of the boys are asleep I’m losing some good “me” time that I need. SO!! I have the COOLEST step-dad… Continue reading World Pond Hockey Championships.
Another morning, me in my PJ’s drinking my twice (or three times) re-heated cup of coffee, blogging away. I’m the bearer of good and bad news this morning, that’s why I’m writing early, I just need to talk about stuff. Last night Silas and I made this video. I wasn’t expecting it to turn out… Continue reading Apples?
Ikey Okie Oh is 5 whole months old today. Man, time goes by fast with baby #1 but with #2 it’s like WAAAAYYY faster. Because time is already going fast with #1! I really can’t believe we’re at 5 months. One more month and we’re half way done this whole baby thing. What a bitter… Continue reading Ikey Is 5 Months Old!
Thirteen Things about The Informal Matriarch 13 things I’m proud of My musical abilities, especially my singing voice. Teaching myself to sing harmony and then teaching myself to find the 3rd part on the fly. I had to learn that quickly because of singing at the church I’m at, I figured it out and now… Continue reading Thursday Thirteen #10
Yesterday was one of the hardest days I’ve experienced as a mother. I want to cry just thinking about it. Silas was awful, just completely horrible and I have the bruises to prove it. I don’t know if it was the ear infection or teething or what but he was a monster. He’d pick the… Continue reading Saved By The Mom
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
Goodness I’m sleepy. I had a very full day yesterday but I had a pretty good time getting all those photos done. See my previous post for a little sneak peek at what we did. It took both of us (my girlfriend and I) a little while to get comfortable with the whole situation but… Continue reading Sleepy
So my darling little Silas has turned into a violent little booger and I’m actually starting to get upset. He does this little hit and claw move where he hits you and then digs his nails in and pulls back, sometimes you get a pinch too. If you hold onto his hands then he will… Continue reading Hitting and Biting and Scratching OH MY!
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… Continue reading This and That
My darling Silas is starting to have a hard time again with his teethies. At least we had a few weeks of really happy baby. The poor kiddo, I can’t believe he’s cut 8 teeth since Christmas, the two molars are hardly cut and the other two are starting to get a bit white on… Continue reading Teething Never Ends
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… Continue reading New Leaf
I was going to blog yesterday and have a bunch of photos of our visit up but then it didn’t happen. Now the photos are in 100 Mile and I am NOT! Silas was a true gentleman the whole way home last night. He was on his best behavior. He was SO happy to see… Continue reading Scared of the Potty.
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!
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
I like to think that I’ve had a hand in making my son rather independent. He never minds when we leave him with a babysitter or the nursery at church, he keeps himself busy for most of the day without needing me (for playing purposes), he’s not shy, never been a mommies or a daddies… Continue reading He Needs Me?
