Baby Middle is 5 Months Old

“The days are long, but the years are short.” – said someone who was probably a mother I’m not really sure how we are already at the 5 month mark.  I swear, wasn’t I just pregnant?  Wasn’t I just counting the days (weeks!) until my due date?  Wasn’t he just born? Oh, Middle Baby.  It’s […]

Merry Christmas From Our Corner

This year, my little family enjoyed one of the most low key holidays we have ever had. When I began dating Oatmeal, I learned that his family had already set up a schedule for the holidays.  One year his parents would host Thanksgiving at their home and everyone would come to them, but then at […]

Baby Middle is 4 Months Old

Baby Middle… You are now 4 months old.  I am going to just cut to the chase here and confess that I L-O-V-E this age.  I know that I should talk about how I love every minute of every day, but in all honesty, I’ve found that the first several months were really hard with […]

Goodbye, house…

Tonight is our very last night in our College Station home.  It doesn’t even feel real to me. We moved into our home when Poppyseed was only 4.5 months old.  We have SO many memories here. I remember when I saw this house for the first time.  I loved it.  I thought it was the […]

The Three Month Sleep Update.

Today it’s been just me and the nugget.  Oatmeal took Poppyseed to his brother’s house in Cypress for the day, and they should be back soon.  I had a long list of things that I wanted to do before they got home, but as anyone with a young baby can probably understand, I’ll be doing […]

Dear Poppyseed, you are 2.5!

Dear Poppyseed, I couldn’t go to bed tonight without sitting down to write you this little letter.  Last week you turned 2.5, and I feel like I need to document a few things before you grow up even more. First of all, you are definitely all girl.  You love frilly things… dresses, tutus, sparkly shoes, […]

The easiest and most relaxing week ever. Said no one.

Another quick post… just for the sake of having some type of record of these first weeks of Baby Middle’s existence. On Monday Middle was 4 weeks old.  At 6:30am Oatmeal kissed us goodbye.  He was off to work and then catching a plane for a business trip that would keep him occupied until Thursday […]

Middle is a Week Old!

I cannot believe that an entire week has passed since we welcomed Baby Middle into the world.  I know I just called him his blog nickname, Middle, but I want to make a sort of announcement of sorts that we have decided to call him Johnny.  We debated between John and Johnny for the first […]

I didn’t see it coming.

So I am going to spit this blog post out as quickly as I can, because I really want to put it out there that I did something weird, tried something new, and it WORKED. If you’ve been reading my pregnancy updates, you’ll know that the main difference between this pregnancy with Middle and my […]

Dirty Thirty and a Third Trimester Pregnancy Update

Oh, maybe one day I’ll be able to blog regularly again. Today I’m about 29.5 weeks pregnant, but I’m just now getting to my 28 week update. Last week Oatmeal and I took off on our long awaited vacation to Costa Rica.  We planned this trip back in January, so it was something we’d been […]
