First music lessons today. I’ve been hesitant at signing us up for “lessons” and activities because I really do feel like kids are over-scheduled these days.  There are rigid schedules for napping, sleeping, feeding, playing, and if you aren’t following one SOMEONE will recommend a book or expert that says you should.  I used to … Continue reading »

Now I’m excited at the prospect of getting to … Continue reading »

Dairy Test #1

I finally decided to test the diary intolerance issue again. With breakfast I ate a graham cracker that does contain dairy (whey specifically). I’m SUPER nervous! If he starts crying I will know it’s my fault.  Talk about “mommy guilt” it’s going to crush me if he cries and is upset over this. I just … Continue reading »

Moms and Babies, Oh My

I invited people over! We spent the entire weekend baby proofing the house.  OK….. not the entire house, but the main rooms. My little one has decided to learn to crawl.  He was “army crawling” and now he is able to get one knee under him so it won’t be much longer and he’s on … Continue reading »

A New Chapter in the Sleep War

The swaddle is GONE!!!!  It wasn’t the peaceful removal that I expected, but it’s gone now and not coming back. Thursday night was TERRIBLE in terms of sleep around here.  He woke up crying every 45 minutes… you read that right EVERY 45 minutes from 10pm-6am!  We don’t “cry it out” and besides there was … Continue reading »
