I’ve survived ten months as a first time mom and I feel like I’ve learned so much more than I ever thought was possible. These past ten months have been filled with so much love and happiness but they’ve also been filled with anxiety, frustration, fear, and an overwhelming feeling that I’m screwing everything up.… Continue reading Tips for First Time Parents
I only have two months left with Nate alone! How is this possible!? *insert ugly cry face right here* Yesterday I had the sudden realization that in just two short months I will be returning to work. Yes. I have almost been off for an entire year! How is that even possible!? I originally went… Continue reading Two Month Count Down Is On!
This has got to be the best summer I’ve had in a long time! Since I work two part time nursing jobs, I usually end up working every single weekend which sucks considering Kurt only works Monday-Friday. So for the past 2-3 years, it’s felt like I haven’t really gotten to enjoy any quality time… Continue reading Ah, The Summer So Far!
Well, baby Nate had his nine month check up today (whelp!) and I’m proud to say he’s doing awesome! He’s roughly 20 lbs now; putting him in the 50th percentile for weight (which is where he’s been all along) and he’s 28.5 inches long. He dropped slightly in the height percentile but honestly, looking at… Continue reading Nine Month Check Up!
Several blog posts ago I talked about how Nate had suddenly decided he no longer needed to sleep at night. He was waking up multiple times throughout the night to feed or to play and nothing I tried seemed to help him stay asleep. This went on for a few weeks until FINALLY he was… Continue reading Ahhhh, yet another sleep strike!
Wow. My little Nate is almost nine months old! I cannot believe it’s gone by so fast. It’s mind-boggling thinking about how pretty soon we’ll be celebrating his first birthday! I already have a board on my pinterest dedicated to his first birthday party as well as numerous things favourited on Etsy. I swear, I… Continue reading Loves and Hates
As Nate gets bigger and bigger I often find myself reminiscing about being pregnant and wishing I could go back to those wonderful nine months. Don’t get me wrong; I absolutely love being able to hug, kiss, and play with him but because my pregnancy was such a breeze and went by so fast, I… Continue reading Missing Being Pregnant
I never imagined myself as the type to make homemade baby food. To be honest, I thought it seemed like a crazy amount of work and how would I possibly be able to manage making baby food when I’m trying to manage taking care of a baby! But after seeing my friend Jen manage to… Continue reading Pros and Cons: Homemade Baby Food
My dearest sweet Nate, Tomorrow you are six months old! I can’t believe how quickly the last six months have come and gone! It feels like only yesterday I just casually decided at 11pm on a Monday night to take a pregnancy test just because I had an extra one in my bathroom drawer. You… Continue reading My Dearest Sweet Nate
As I stand in my kitchen looking at our calendar that has all of our appointments, birthdays, get togethers, baby showers, etc neatly marked in each person’s designated colour (pink for me, blue for Nate, green for Kurt, and red for anything involving all three of us) I can’t help but focus solely on the… Continue reading There’s No Way!…
