How I Grew My Freezer Stash to More Than 100 Bags of Breast Milk

With my baby turning 8 months, I can't believe I've been I've been breastfeeding/pumping exclusively this entire time. I've gone through ups and downs of uncertainty if my supply would keep up thanks to illness and everyday stresses. But the other day, I opened up our deep freeze and saw over 100 bags of my [...]

My best made plans can be found on my pillow

Somehow my baby turned 8 months today. Time really flies. Like, seriously. Sleep still eludes me. The baby has been waking up numerous times a night for months, like a repeat of his older brother. Speaking of, my three year old has been waking up once during the night most nights recently. He either demands [...]

It’s Bittersweet, Baby

Guys, I don't know what's up with me lately. I seem to be in a baby fever phase...and I have a baby. My baby is six months old, which seems impossible. Where did the time go? And for months I've been obsessing over babies. I'm starting to believe this is a result of realizing that [...]

Just tired

I'm just tired. When I have no idea how to put my feelings into words, my go-to response is "I'm just tired." That's how I've been feeling the past few days. A lack of sleep has a lot to do with it, I know that. Last night I clocked a whopping 5 hours and 13 [...]

The Monday-est of Mondays

I have baby poop on my sleeve. That's how I started my day. I managed to get to daycare only 10 minutes behind schedule, pulled my chubby smiley boy out of his car seat and immediately smelled something. I'm chatting with his teachers telling them he pooped and one gal grabs him to change his [...]

Free Falling into Fall

Free Falling into Fall

I'm still coming off the hell that was last week with both kids sick. And I'm missing coffee more than ever. The three year old finally returned to sleeping through the night in his bed without waking up screeching multiple times a night. The baby is making progress. He's still congested and coughs at night, [...]

Do I look tired?

This has been the longest week ever. Yesterday (Wednesday) felt like it should have been Friday. It might have something to do with the fact that the baby has a cold, so the past five nights I have gotten even worse sleep than the already 5-6 fragmented hours I get a night. And on top [...]
