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 […]

Slow Down and Simplify

Ever since we moved, life has been incredibly simple. All of my commitments and activities and play dates have come to an (almost) screeching halt.  In so many ways, it makes me antsy.  But if I were being honest, it’s also kind of nice.  I couldn’t really call my life relaxing, because being a mom […]

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 […]

Lola & Oatmeal move to Katy!

Well, it’s been a while since I posted because… We moved!  We are Katy people now – woohoo! Oatmeal began moving the weekend before Thanksgiving.  Things we didn’t need such as the dining room table and guest room furniture were moved the weekend before our true moving date.  We enjoyed a fun and leisurely Thanksgiving […]

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 […]

Almost on the move…

I told myself that if I managed to get both tots down at the same time, I would ignore all other chores and write a quick post.  This is going to be such a random entry, but I have been so exhausted and need to catch up! The next few weeks are going to be […]

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 […]

On to the next.

We survived the fourth trimester.  Baby Middle is now 12 weeks old. A few updates about him… Eating – With a little bit of work, I’ve managed to space out Middle’s feedings to about every 3 hours.  I’m so happy to be in this place, because I am able to nurse him (for quite a […]

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, […]

Divide and Conquer

I wanted to write a post about the huge difference between parenting one baby – your first baby – and your second one.  It’s an interesting stage/transition, one that I bet many of you can relate. So when we were pregnant with Poppyseed, Oatmeal and I went to Bradley Method Childbirth classes together.   When I […]
