Image 1

Today I am 7 months postpartum. Really, he is already 7 months?! This baby stage has seemed really long some days and to quick other days. I love seeing his little legs kick in times of joy, hear him say mama in the wee hours of the night and see that spark in his eyes when his […]

LONG update on life…life with FPIES

It has been a busy, hectic, tiresome last two months. I haven’t had the energy to write or really know where to start. So much has happened, changed and is still changing. But before I get to lengthy let me just say I knew from the time my son was 3 weeks old that something […]

The One

Jason and Meghan Engagement 274

It’s not our anniversary or anything but I was thinking about my love story because my daughter has been asking to wear my rings and tells me Daddy rescued me from a tall castle.

Over the last few weeks I have noticed my daughter is totally buying into tv marketing. During some of her shows the toy commercials are grabbing her attention as she says, “Mama, I want that!!” Well, around the same time she started the same song and dance whenever we were at Target.

Mom Gut vs. Baby Doctor Degree Man Part 1

When you hear someone has a food allergy what is your first thought? For me, I was one of those people that immediately thought, “really, a food allergy or just an extremely sensitive person?! Toughen up!” I wasn’t very sympathetic or empathetic and more so just ignorant on what a food allergy meant. I truly […]

Tot Remarks

My tot says some pretty funny stuff these days and I just have to share because these comments made me laugh out loud. Gotta love this age. 1. Her and I are sitting on the bed and it’s about 4pm. Her: “Where is my Dad?” Me: “At work.” She jumps off the bed and as she […]

Daily Crazy-December 31

I thought it would be fun to do a post now and then with a quick run down on what goes down in a day around our house. A bit of a look inside our crazy life with two kids, three if you count my husband, and a couple dogs. Some days the stars align and […]

Crap You Do To Have a Diaper Free Child

So as a first time parent I thought the hardest part of potty training would be the initial few days or that week it took to train her. Well this big girl on the potty thing isn’t all its cracked up to be. Yes we are saving money on diapers but there are other headaches […]
