Thoughts & Happenings 8/16/17

Yesterday, Elizabeth had a checkup and she's now in the 99% for height and 97% for weight. Hehe, big girl. No wonder she's in 2T/3T at 13 months. ^_^ I was pleased to see that her iron was at 12.5 (it's gotta be the grits she has for breakfast every morning). She didn't even care… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 8/16/17

Motherhood Maternity Nursing Bras | A Review

This is not a sponsored post. I have fallen in love with a bra especially made to wear while breastfeeding and I want to share my experience with you. I paid for the bras myself and (unfortunately) I have no affiliation with Motherhood Maternity. ;) I'm not one for spending lots of money on clothes,… Continue reading Motherhood Maternity Nursing Bras | A Review

Thoughts & Happenings 8/6/17

I'm finally ready to return to blogging after taking most of the last few months off. While gone, I've gotten my first trimester with baby #5 out of the way (woo-hoo!) and if things continue to go well, I will never have to endure a first trimester again, lol. It was actually really easy this… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 8/6/17

After the ultrasound, I had my first official prenatal appointment with one of the midwives. It went… Continue reading Baby #5 | Pregnancy after D&C | Week Eight

Day in the Life

Day in the Life (May 2017)

May 22, 2017 Our night was somewhat better than the few before it, but Elizabeth still woke up a few times and was upset. When she got up at 5:45, I figured that she'd stay up after nursing, and I was right. We got up for the day at 6:00 and said good morning to… Continue reading Day in the Life (May 2017)

{10 Month Old} Sleep Training ~ Day One

I'm not fond of the phrase sleep training because it brings to mind some unpleasant things but Elizabeth and I are in desperate need of change at nap and bedtime so we are very gently sleep training. For the last few months, since she self-weaned from her pacifier (which had always been used simply as a transitional… Continue reading {10 Month Old} Sleep Training ~ Day One
