Blogging 101: How to Make a Grab Button

Advice Corner 10

I have to say I’m extremely addicted to blogging and I love figuring out how to add cool gadgets and special features to my blog all the time. I’m definitely not an expert at coding/HTML, but I do know my way around a code or two, and there’s always some tutorial out there showing you how to do something. I decided I wanted to include some important and useful tutorials… Read more »

Comment Away!

Comment Away!

Blog Related 3

Hey all! I’ve decided to change things up a bit here and went ahead and installed the Intense Debate commenting system. Sure I really liked Disqus, it did what it was supposed to do and worked well, but sometimes I found that some people weren’t able to comment or that it took forever for Disqus to load. At the beginning I was debating between the two systems and I opted… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 8 – Getting Just Alil’ Bit Older

Project BG2, Week 8 – Getting Just Alil’ Bit Older

Project BG2 1

BG2 is 8 weeks today! Crazi how time flies doesn’t it? Even though she’s not officially two months until Tuesday, she’s still getting so big so quickly. I love how she’s smiling a lot more now and talking to people. She loves having conversations with her Grandma and she always smiles when her Daddy picks her up from the babysitter’s house. It kind of sucks that she doesn’t talk to… Read more »

There’s a Traitor in Our Mists

BG2, Marriage, Parenting 2

Well, it’s official, BG2 is a Daddy’s Girl. The update on BG2 is that she’s doing much better on Enfamil Gentlease. We tried to start her back on Good Start over the weekend, but she wasn’t drinking as much and seemed a bit fussier, so we quickly switched her back and I suppose we’ll continue to buy it and see how she does. We also changed all her nipples to… Read more »

Her story is truly an inspirational one, raising an autistic child, giving birth to triplets and then suffering through the loss of one baby.

Review: Zic & ChaCha – Gifts for Couples

Review: Zic & ChaCha – Gifts for Couples

Reviews 2

I love finding new and unique gift ideas, especially for couples, since it’s always good to give gifts outside the “norm” and have fun with it. A company I recently discovered, Zic & ChaCha, is a cute website that sells boxers for couples.   I love that they have such cute designs for couples and they also include neutral, more low-key designs for the more conservative couple. I’m not usually… Read more »

Gas is Not My Friend

Gas is Not My Friend

BG2, Parenting 2

So here is the update on BG2, how she’s doing, and the outlook from here. We started Enfamil Gentlease on Tuesday and it seemed to be working okay. She was taking it down without any complaints, so I guess it tastes the same?!?! Also, we haven’t noticed any changes in her BMs, although the color has changed a bit, but nothing to worry about, I was more concerned about constipation… Read more »

No, You Can’t Put My Little Sister in the Trash!

No, You Can’t Put My Little Sister in the Trash!

BG1, BG2, Parenting 35

My mom just told me the funniest and sweetest story about my two little girls: So, last night everyone was taking turns holding BG2 trying to calm her and put her to sleep, so she was basically all over the house. Eventually, BG1 comes around and asks my mom where the baby is and my mom jokingly replies, “I threw her in the trash.” So, being only 6 years old,… Read more »

Project BG2, Week 7 – What a Stressful Week

Project BG2, Week 7 – What a Stressful Week

Project BG2 7

This week has been pretty rough for all of us. I don’t know if it’s because BG2 is supposedly going through a growth spurt or that fussiness just seems to peak at this age, but she was not a happi baby. Most likely the fussiness is due to gas and her acid reflux, but I’m hoping since we changed her formula that it will help and she can be the… Read more »
