A Note to My Little Monkey Bear on His 2nd Birthday

Screen Shot 2011-11-29 at 10.32.50 PM

2 years ago, at this very same time, I was shivering on an operating table - scared and nervous. Looking up towards a loving and excited Daddy-to-be, I awaited your arrival. I had no idea of the amount of love, laughter and sheer happiness you would bring to our lives! I can't wait for a lifetime more with you Monkey Bear. Happy Birthday my little man. … [Read more...]

Gassy Baby/Newborn? Read My Kickin’ Coaster Review!

Is your newborn or infant really gassy? My little man totally was/is (he gets it from his dad for sure!!) When he was really little, he was soooooooo gassy and it just pained me to see him cry every morning trying to take a poop. I tried EVERYTHING and doing the bicycle legs and massaging his tummy seemed to work a little, but really his only option was to cry it out which just broke my heart. Then when he was 6 weeks old I saw the The First Years 3-in-1 Kickin Coaster Seat on Amazon. 3 … [Read more...]

Our beautiful slab of granite for the kitchen "Mary Blue"

Hi everyone. I just wanted to take a quick moment to thank you all for your patience :) I have not been able to post as much as I used to because we are *finally* (after a whole YEAR of renovations) ready to move into our new home. We have until the end of the month to vacate our apartment so I have been trying to juggle blogging with packing, moving, cleaning, and Whistler's educational/fun classes. I *know* I am behind in announcing winners for past giveaways...just rest assured that … [Read more...]

Friday Fun: Some Useless Knowledge For You!

I've always joked that I know more "useless" knowledge than most.  I'm not sure why, but it probably has to do with this great book I had as a kid that was something to the effect of "encyclopedia of facts".  I LOVED it.  It was probably about 400 pages (a BIG book) and designed for kids - filled with random information. Today I got an email from a friend that I almost deleted (sorry Heather!).  I took and chance and opened it and there were a bunch of my random useless party entertainment … [Read more...]

Happy 1st Birthday, Whistler!

I'm Your Biggest Fan

November 29, 2010 My Little Weasel, Whistler, I never imagined the kind of love I could feel for another person - or the strength of that love - until the day they placed you in my arms. That was the day my life truly began.  This past year has been the happiest of my life and I somehow feel like I never really existed before you. You brighten all my mornings with smiles and laughs and every evening with snuggles and kisses. How quickly you have grown into such a sweet, smart young man - … [Read more...]
