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
Once there was a little girl who chose to show her new friends Dial M for Murder as the movie to watch at a super-cool 17th birthday party. Yes, that movie - a Hitchcock, and not even a really good Hitchcock (obviously, I like his movies, especially Rear Window, The Birds, The Man Who Knew Too … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday: The Making of a Nerd
Dear Little Sister, Hi little Seeker! You're so puffy! I love your little puffy cheekies! Puff, puff. I just puffed your cheeks. Okay, I just wanted to talk to you a little bit about sharing. You know, taking turns and playing with the same toys? Mom is always saying things like, "You need to share … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday: A Letter Between Sisters on Sharing
So I, as usual, was having a hard time coming up with something sweet to talk about this Friday. Even in a sarcastic sense, nothing was coming to mind. I think I've just been in an endless cycle of shoveling snow, feeling cooped up, dealing with whining, and answering more questions in a week than … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday: Those Carefree Days of Toddlerhood
The creative and sweet Valerie over at Living Lighter in Atlanta (check out her great blog!) tagged me in a fun tag in which the blogger reposts or pastes their first blog post. Thanks for thinking of Welcome to the Nursery, Valerie! Well, my first post was very short.... Originally this blog was a place to … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday? #MyFirstPostRevisted Tag, and Other Baby Sounds
Let me just preface this by saying that I love my two little girls, now 13m and almost 3.5y. They are adorable and a lot of fun. I truly love them to bits. But they are, especially the younger, babies. Crying, fussy, tantrumy, picky, no-napping, stubborn babies. I actually enjoy kids, so much so that I'm … Continue reading Sweet (Future) Memories Friday: No More Babies!
Sometimes dinnertime is a total cluster f*&^, and I'd rather skip right to bedtime than eat my meal, no matter how hungry I am. But more and more lately - maybe because we're finally getting a handle on feeding four people at once - dinnertime is becoming a fun time when we laugh together. There … Continue reading Sweet Memories Friday: Crazy Dinnertime Laughs!
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!
