The Love of a Sister

The Love of a Sister

BG1, BG2, Parenting 15

Sisters truly are one of the best things in life. I, personally, have a pretty good relationship with my little sister who is 5 years younger than me, which is a pretty big but decent gap. When I found out I was having another girl, I was worried that since BG1 is over 6 years older than the baby, they might not play together at all. I found I was… Read more »

I’ve Got a Quirky Baby

I’ve Got a Quirky Baby

BG2, Parenting 4

Why do you repeatedly put your chubby little finger in the VCR we never use when you know it will just get stuck there, which will cause you to turn and look at me with those sad, big eyes and a frown on your face until I come over and pull your finger out? And then you go and do it again. And now you’ve graduated to repeatedly opening the… Read more »

I Almost Lost It Today

I Almost Lost It Today

BG2, Parenting 20

BG2 is not your average baby when it comes to the bottle. For some reason, she just isn’t a fan. Eventually we resorted to only feeding her a bottle when she naps and sleeps at night, which averages out to 3-4 bottles (18-24 oz) a day. It was tough, but we managed. Then came time to make the BIG SWITCH to cow’s milk. And we thought she wasn’t a fan… Read more »

Every Baby Needs a Blowdryer

Every Baby Needs a Blowdryer

BG2, Parenting 0

BG2 is now 8 months old, no longer considered a newborn (which, I think stops at 6 months) and I have yet to impart any of my “Caring for a newborn” wisdom. Being that it has been 6 years since I had to take care of a baby, I was a bit rusty and pretty much had to learn everything all over again. It came quickly and naturally, of course,… Read more »

BABY FACTS – Live ’em, Love ’em, Laugh at ’em

BABY FACTS – Live ’em, Love ’em, Laugh at ’em

BG2, Parenting 5

I’ve come to realize quite a few facts about BG2, aged 8 months. I thought I’d share SOME of the many with you: Baby Fact #1: My baby drools like there’s a water hose in her mouth, but instead of spraying cool, refreshing water, it leaks an endless amount of saliva with no way to turn it off. We’ve resorted to layering her bibs and are always at the ready… Read more »

Happy 2 Months Alea!!! I can’t believe it’s been two months already! Time really does fly by (I’ll probably be saying that a lot). I swear I can remember Labor Day, pushing you out, and holding you for the first time like it was yesterday. I am so truly blessed to have you in my life and know that Mommy loves you always and forever! …10 days.   You Might… Read more »

There’s a Traitor in Our Mists

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 »

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 »
