Happy Friday everybody!  One of my girlfriends is in town from NYC for a few days to meet The Wee One!  She is a fellow Target-obsessed buddy and dessert-loving gal and I’m so happy for this quality time with a dear friend. I am also happy to report there has been some improvement on the thrush-related pain!  I am still in the process of treating it and some nights it feels like this journey will never end but I am trucking along. It doesn’t help that I feel like a hot mess most days.  This Read more […]

The Wee One is a special guy.  I know it.  The Scottish knows it.  But even better, our whole extended family knows it!  The Wee One has been so lucky to have met so many of his extended family in the first few weeks of life. I want to remember these moments.  I want them saved on my blog because in my life, there is nothing more important than family.  It’s cliché but true, they make the good parts of life better and the bad parts of life easier.  In our family, we laugh… a lot.  We Read more […]

Breastfeeding.  What can I say that’s not already been said??  First off, this isn’t meant to be a comment on formula feeding vs breastfeeding.  This is just one woman’s story.  I know many of us go into motherhood wanting to breastfeed but it’s not a reality for everyone.  No judgement here! I want to start off by saying breastfeeding was a million times harder than I ever dreamed it could be (and I had heard a lot of stories about its difficulty).  I found myself angry that my beat up Read more […]

Life.

My life is unpredictable right now.  It’s new and it’s busy and I’m still trying to figure out how to manage my time so that I can still blog while caring for an infant, a dog and still keep the house clean and all of us fed.  The past few days have been even busier as I’ve had my nanny family in town.  The Nanny Mom brought us tons of food and cooked delicious meals for us to eat, while Big C and Littlest C doted on The Wee One and McKenna.  It’s been a great visit but it meant I had no time Read more […]

WOW!  It’s true what they say, time really flies by after you have a child!  That said, the moments when you’re in pain or sleep-deprived seem to drag on forever, but for the most part you feel like your baby is growing too fast and that everything feels like it happened yesterday. I plan on doing a monthly update of The Wee One for the first year of his life and while I feel like there is always so much to say, I’m going to try and keep these as simple and generalized as possible.  Think Read more […]
