Tomorrow will be better

How do you resist a smile like that?

I originally posted something similar to this on my Facebook on the eve of Thanksgiving. But it still very much applies tonight. So here you are:

So we’ve been struggling with sleep issues again the last few days. Not sure what is going on, but he’s waking up 2-3 times a night screaming and struggles to settle down even with me in the room. He wraps his little arms and little legs around me and just listens to my heart to calm down. Before I know it I’m sitting in the rocking chair listening to his little snores, still with his arms and legs wrapped around me wondering how long I have to sit here and rock before I can put him down.

Monkey’s traumatic journey

Preparing for beach day... what are you packing baby? Oh, blanket. Of course.

Our little guy recently attached to a security blanket. This day was bound to happen. We’ve even tried preparing for it by watching to see what he really likes and buying multiples (I have 3 blue bunnies right now, and while he plays with them, that’s not his favorite). We’ve tried making sure we only buy things that we know we can easily replace. The problem? He didn’t attach to anything we recently bought. He didn’t attach to anything I bought multiples of. And of course! He didn’t attach to anything I can replace. Continue reading

What’s Burning?

Happy New Year!!

Watson and I are both very blessed to be able to work from home for different companies. I work during the day and Watson does overnights.

The years past

Baby boy being the silly baby that he is.

I can’t believe Christmas is over and the New Year is literally around the corner. We had no snow for Christmas, which I think makes it even more surreal. But every year, when New Years arrives, I always look back. I look back at where I came from, who I’ve become, and things I never did but wanted to. This may sound counter productive to you, but I feel like its important to do once every year. Continue reading

Happy Holidays!

We were not so happy meeting Santa... Next year maybe. Santa had a good chuckle though!

I’m so sorry for the long delays between posts. The holiday season is proving to be a very busy one for our little family. Today I did something I have been too scared to do. I went out shopping with my little guy for the majority of the day. We finished up some last minute Christmas shopping and we had lunch at our favorite place, Wegmans.  He had Beechnut’s Apple Mango Avocado baby food, and I had a Caterpillar sushi roll. We laughed, and giggled, and touched all sorts of new materials. And you know what? Not once did I lock him and my keys in the car, nor did I lose him. I’m feeling pretty confident as a parent right now. And before anyone rolls their eyes… I’m fully aware that both of those things will eventually happen, but not today! Continue reading
