Even though this is my second daughter, a lot of the time it feels new to me. No two kids are alike, even if they're related, but in the affection department I think my baby is much more so than my toddler was. Both are "mama's girls," but Baby craves it much more - which … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday: Little Baby Embraces
I'll be honest ... I've had a hard time coming up with something to post about for today. It's been a shitty week - which followed a shitty week. No, that's not totally true. Baby's erratic napping (and lack of napping while Toddler is at preschool!) and subsequent schedule-tastrope have colored my entire outlook, I'm … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday: Hugs are Here!
Baby is definitely a mama's girl. I'm not sure why, but I admit that I really like it. If she's fussy or crying or just plain tired, nothing will calm her down except being in mommy's arms. It's actually pretty freaky how she will instantly stop whining once my arms wrap around her. She lays … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday: A Fully Relaxed Baby on You
I won't lie that the moment my husband walks through the door around 4:05 PM is one of my top 3 moments every day. (Some days it's THE top moment! You know those days....) You know who else loves it? Baby! (Aside: Do I still call her Baby, since she's now 1? I'll need to … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday: Excited To See Daddy Return From Work!
Happy birthday to our little baby! One year ago she popped out ("popped"), and what a fast year it's been. Happy baby, happy sister, happy parents. As an aside, I've decide to drop my Thursday posts for the future and stick to a five-day, M-Tu-W-F-Sa schedule. This is just due to my time availability. Want … Continue reading Baby Birthday!
I spent two hours last night looking at preschools for our 3yo Toddler. Scary, right? YES! I swear it was just last week that I spent two hours pushing her out. Such a cliché to say they grow up so fast, but it's so true. Soon enough she'll be taking a bus (by herself!) to … Continue reading I’m Not Letting You Go, Okay Kids?
I'm taking a departure from the usual schtick here (does this qualify as schtick?!) to give a simple note of thanks for my two lovely daughters. Not a day goes by - even if both of them are crying and my bladder's full to bursting but I need to soothe them and someone spilled milk … Continue reading Thanks for Being, Babies!
... 8 months! I've just figured it out, and I'm pretty sure about this. Now that my little baby girl is a day shy of 9m and teething has just began, I think we're passing into a stage where things get progressively harder. Having a 3yo also, experience tells me I'm likely right. Let's think about … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday: And the Perfect Baby Age Is …
A mom friend - who has a toddler and a baby just about the same age as my two girls - told me she sometimes whispers, "You're my favorite" to her baby ... because sometimes toddlers are just so difficult and, well, in comparison a sweet little baby is so easy to be #1 at … Continue reading Little Baby, You’re My Favorite. (Not Really.)
Sometimes I think I could kiss my baby, especially her head, all day long. Literally, all day long. I'd be content to just kiss her sweet-smelling, fluffy head, and her squishy shoulders, and maybe also those puffy, puffy cheeks. I'd have to stop to feed both of us, and change her diaper, and also pee … Continue reading Really: I Could Kiss My Sweet Baby Allll Day Long!
