There has been a lot going on this month in my household because we are moving in just a couple more weeks! That’s right. Time to put on those wandering shoes again! (more…)
Now that it’s June, I think I have a new routine: I get comfortable with the baby’s current likes/dislikes and feel like I’m really clued into her cues, she starts working on some new skill and changes up many of her likes/dislikes, I work on adjusting to these changes and figuring out how to handle her new needs/wants, and then as soon as I’m comfortable the entire thing starts all over again! I think as soon as I accepted this cycle as my new routine and gave up on the idea of a regular schedule, I immediately felt more relaxed. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, right? 😉 Here are some of the things I’ve been loving this month as I learned this new life lesson. (more…)
It’s May already? What?! That doesn’t seem possible! I had hoped to have a routine down by now but that is not the case…I’ve had several days where I’d get into a routine and think I’ve got this mommy thing figured out, but then there is a growth spurt or tummy ache or something that makes a joke of my ‘routine.’ I guess babies laugh at schedules. 😉 May’s arrival means I’ll be heading back to work soon. But first, a look back at some of the things I’ve been loving! (more…)
As I mentioned in my last post, the past few weeks have just flown by. I can hardly believe our daughter is over a month old already! Having a newborn is definitely not the easiest thing in the world…I have never been more sleep-deprived in my life…but I wouldn’t want to miss a single coo or smile! We’ve had a lot of family visit over the past few weeks to visit the new addition and also give us a hand so we have managed to get out of the house a bit and I managed to make sure not every item on this month’s list is baby-related. 😉 (more…)
I realized as I began to make my list for March that I never posted my list for February. The past few weeks have been incredibly busy…I think I say this all the time but it’s been busy in an entirely different way than usual: baby time! Our little bundle of joy arrived and while it’s been just as exhausting as I was warned, it’s also been more incredible than I could have ever imagined! ❤ We’re all doing well and I can’t believe how quickly the time is flying by. So, let’s get to the list before it gets any later! (more…)
It’s already the end of January which means it’s time to take a quick look back at the first month of the year AND we are that much closer to our little one’s arrival! It’s been a super busy month with preparing to be a first-time mom and trying to finish up all the tasks still on my plate at work before I start my maternity leave. Wish me luck…I’m going to need it! And as always, I like to think about some of those little things that I’ve been enjoying throughout the month. So here are things I’ve been loving in January! (more…)
Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. After my last post, I started my final year in my Master’s program and things just got crazy busy. I was also working at the same time and just somehow allowed a lot of the fun things to slip through the cracks, including this blog. But it’s a new year and that means a fresh start, right? I’m ready! So here is a brief summary of where I’ve been the past few months and what lies ahead in 2017!
