Baby Middle is 6 Months Old

On February 11, our baby boy turned 6 months old! Baby Middle is now weighing in at just over 20 pounds.  The week of his birthday, he did two new things.  First of all, he tasted real food for the very first time.  I gave him avocado mixed with breast milk, and it certainly appeared […]

Thankfully that all seems to be turning around.  Last weekend Baby Middle turned 6 months old.  We gave him a few teaspoons of avocado as his very first food.  To my delight, he actually slept for 7 […]

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 […]

2015!!

Oh, 2015.  Here you are.  I can’t believe it. One thing that I just love are New Year’s Resolutions.  I have actually made and kept many resolutions, though not in recent years.  One year I decided I was not going to purchase a single magazine for the entire year, mainly because at the time I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
