Project BG3: Week 5 – Acid Reflux It Is

Project BG3: Week 5 – Acid Reflux It Is

BG3, Project BG3 0

We’re definitely moving along because BG3 is already 5 weeks old! On the one hand, I want her to get bigger so there’s less for me to worry about and we can get to the fun parts, but on the other hand I want her to stay young and little so I can soak it all in because this is my last baby! I know, I keep saying it, but… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 4 – And a Month Passes By

Project BG3: Week 4 – And a Month Passes By

BG3, Project BG3 2

How can BG3 be four weeks old already?! Time needs to slow down! So we’ll be celebrating her one month milestone this Sunday with a party and a praying ceremony. I can’t believe she’s almost a month old. I swear, it feels like I just gave birth to her. It has definitely been an experience with her. It’s been a couple years since I’ve done the L&D and newborn thing… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 3 – Eating Less and Fussing More

Project BG3: Week 3 – Eating Less and Fussing More

BG3, Project BG3 2

So this week was another worrisome one for me. BG3 has been eating less, only taking roughly 15-19 ounces a day. She spits up a little on occasion and had a couple full vomit episodes, but for the most part, it hasn’t been a mess like with BG2, but still. This girl definitely has gas problems. We are constantly burping her, and I swear, it looks like the gas is… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 2 – Tummy Troubles

BG3, Project BG3 6

Sigh, I was seriously hoping BG3 wouldn’t follow in BG2’s footsteps and get all reflux on us, but it’s starting to look like she’s got it. The first week she ate so well and barely spit anything up. This week, however, she’s started eating less at each feeding, she’s been extra fussy (which I’m attributing to a lot of gas), and she’s had a few episodes of total vomiting. We… Read more »

BG3, Project BG3 2

In true blogger tradition, I’m totally going to do a 365 photo challenge for BG3. Each week, on Thursday (the day she was born), you’ll be seeing a picture-a-day that I took of her that week. I loved doing this for BG2 and it’s always fun seeing how babies grow and change over time. So, here’s Week 1! It is so amazing to finally have BG3 in my arms. She’s… Read more »

A Disney’s Frozen Birthday Party

A Disney’s Frozen Birthday Party

BG2, Parenting 4

Last Sunday we celebrated BG2’s 3rd birthday with a Disney’s Frozen-themed party. Let me tell you, it was not an easy feat! I didn’t know Frozen party supplies were basically sold out everywhere, not to mention their costumes or even their toys, all gone! Luckily, we managed as best we could. I basically stuck to a blue and white theme, especially with the table. I tried to have some blue… Read more »

BG1 2

Holy bajeebus! I have a NINE year old! How can this be?! I swear, it was yesterday when I was holding your tiny 6lb 15oz self in my arms, marveling at the beautiful little person I just brought into the world. I’m so upset I didn’t do an 8 year old post, but as I’m looking back at the 7 year old post I did, I can’t help but smile… Read more »

My Daughter Actually Likes Wearing Glasses

My Daughter Actually Likes Wearing Glasses

BG1 4

I come from a family full of vision-impaired eyes. My dad and all my siblings wear glasses, my mom is the only fortunate one in the family. My husband also wears glasses, with astigmatisms in both his eyes, sadly. So, naturally, we knew that our children would eventually have to get some eyewear sooner or later. We were hoping for later. Unfortunately, BG1’s eyes are already giving out on her,… Read more »
