Hi Stranger, Watch My Kid

April 1, 2013 3 comments

After being in a state of blissful sleeplessness during maternity leave, we had Kyler in day care full time just two days shy of his 3-month birthday. Our day care has a camera. I have an awkward relationship with said camera. Start internal dialog: Is that baby… Kyler? Wait? It’s supposed to be nap time. […]

March Madness, baby bracket selection with MSU pick -

Donny’s favorite holiday is March Madness. Yes, holiday. Yes, the entire month. Naturally, Kyler wanted to get involved, so he’s filling out his first bracket this year. He doesn’t want to use his words yet, so we had to help him help us fill out his bracket. It was probably one of those ‘I actually […]

On marriage after baby -

Stroller? Check. Diaper bag? Check. Crib? Check. Nursery design? Check. Cloth or disposable? Check. Cool mist or warm mist humidifier? Check. Marriage? Check …wait, what? We all knew child-rearing would be hard work. We were prepared to put our needs aside to meet the little man’s needs. We understood, or at least made the expectation, […]

on mommy guilt and blame -

Going to the allergist was the best idea ever. Two weeks ago, Kyler was taken to the pediatrician for his very itchy face. At that point, the eczema was not all over his body (he just had dry skin), but the itchy boy had pretty severe patches on his head and face. They were oozing […]

Miserable Itchy Dances

eczema baby and his itchy dance -

"This is one of the worst cases of eczema that I’ve seen in a baby…" is clearly what every parent wants to hear. I took Kyler to his 4-month checkup today and those were the words uttered from Doc’s mouth. Well, Crap. Doc saw him a few weeks ago after we woke to find his […]

Superman on Superbowl Sunday

February 3, 2013 0 comments

Happy Superbowl Sunday! I have no vested interest in the Superbowl this year. I don’t follow those teams. While my facebook news feed has been littered with Superbowl mania, this is what I posted just a little bit ago. There is NO exaggeration there. Donny literally does all of the chores and manages to do […]

I’ve been randomly looking back at old baby pictures. It’s already been 4 months since little man entered the world. And I get sad. The first picture of him at home from the hospital was with not his dad nor with me. Actually, I wasn’t in any photos with him when I first got home. […]

custom diy weekly maternity album -

I am so excited about this project. What good blogger doesn’t like to have more documentation? I have always been a fan of custom published books, like the one I did for our wedding, so a first pregnancy almost begs for it. Throughout the pregnancy, I noted sensory stuff I was experiencing each week …what […]

Hello, Burberry Diaper Bag

Burberry Tote Diaper Bag -

If there is anything my man knows, he knows that I love purses… and bags of any kind. Small ones. Big ones. Weekend ones. Ones that are only big enough to fit a lip gloss. Bags that go into bags… He doesn’t ‘get it’, but at least he leaves well enough alone that I use […]
