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 […]

Howdy son, It’s your mommy.  You’re 9 weeks old this week.  I wanted to write you this little letter to let you know how things are going and how much we love you. Your dad and I agree that you are beginning to fill out.   Your face, arms, belly, and thighs are all plumping […]

This is the truth and I’m sticking to it… I haven’t slept in 8 weeks.

Mamas, I’m struggling. I like to be positive and look for the good in each season, but lately, ummmm…. yeah.  No.  Just no. I just put on headphones because I can’t hear any more crying.  I need a 5 minute break from being frustrated that I cannot.get.this.baby.to.take.a.nap.  My Pandora station is set to the Civil […]

Baby Middle is 6 Weeks Old

Yesterday our little nugget turned 6 weeks old! Last weekend we made our first ever road trip to Louisiana as a family of four.  Ever since I had Poppyseed I’ve made a big effort to go to Louisiana to visit family every 6-8 weeks.  It’s never been easy to travel 4.5-5 hours with a kiddo, […]

5 Weeks Old and a Day in the Life

Yesterday our little Baby Middle was 5 weeks old! This is one of those posts that will end up in a baby book, so I apologize now for the annoying details and lack of entertainment, but this is life as we are living it!  I think that 5 weeks must be the turning point in […]

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 […]

In the Trenches

I’m writing a short post just because I know that the next four days are going to be nuts.  Oatmeal is going to be working out of state, so that means I am pretty much going to be on my own here with a newborn and a 2 year old. A few fun facts about […]
