One thing I’ve learned from being a mom is that dinner time for me is the hardest part of my day. I will gladly take the hectic morning rush over the late afternoon/early evening tantrums. Typically at this point in the day Eli is starting to get fussy as his bedtime approaches and Nate is… Continue reading Early Bird Dinner Time
To my sweet, wonderful Natey-Nate, As my due date with your little brother approaches, I’ve found myself reliving your first (almost) three years of life with us. In this short time you have changed me for the better. You’ve taught me how to love unconditionally, what it means to put someone else’s needs before my… Continue reading The Boy Who Made Me a Mom
There was a time not too long ago where Nate was still almost completely non-verbal. At two years old, he knew a few words but still heavily relied on pointing or physical cues to let us know what he wanted. I’m not going to lie, when my doctor suggested he start speech therapy and have… Continue reading My Favourite Nate Sayings
If it was financially possible and let’s face it, socially acceptable, I would have loved to have kept Nate in his crib much longer than we did. Although he was over two when we started the transition into his new toddler bed, he had never once attempted to climb out of his crib. He was… Continue reading Transitioning to the ‘Big Boy’ Bed and Co-sleeping Regression
Life has been slightly hectic and crazy the past little while. After announcing that baby #2 is on his/her way this summer we’ve also been adjusting to me working full time at the hospital as well as trying to transition Nate from his crib into his ‘big boy’ bed. As I’m sure most of you… Continue reading Life Lately
For two years he’s been in our lives and for two years my love for him continues to grow and grow. There are days that it physically overwhelms me just how much I love this little boy right here. I know every parent feels that way about their child but it still shocks me that… Continue reading Our Two Year Old!
It’s almost that time again! We’re just around the corner from your second birthday. It’s still surreal to me that you’re going to be turning two! Some days it feels like you’re still my itty bitty baby and then there’s others where I swear you’re already a teenager. You’re so full of light and personality.… Continue reading Nate at 21.5 Months!
My little sweet, sweet Natey-Nate; you’re fast approaching 20 months old! This absolutely delights me but if I’m being entirely honest, which I have promised myself I will always be to you, it also terrifies me to no end. As much as I want you to grow up, part of me wants you to stay… Continue reading Natey
Oh, hi there! Remember me? That mom/wife/nurse who consistently forgets she owns and operates a blog? Yeah, that’s me! I’m back; or should I say I never really left but got boggled down with life and everything that comes along with being a working mom. I don’t mean to use that as an excuse because… Continue reading Nature Walks with Nate and Bob the Grizzly Bear
Well, here we are again…me apologizing for being MIA from my blog for like the third or fourth time. Haha! I swear I really do intend to blog more frequently but then life and work get in the way and I end up going three or four weeks without a new post. Oh well, I’m… Continue reading Nate at 18 Months!
