I’m a huge oxymoron.

April 16, 2010

I need a break. Like a serious life break.  A break from the dogs, the baby ::gasp:: did I just say that out loud?  And even JPW.  I don’t like being alone most days, but the constant noise of the washing machine, and the electronic baby toy music, and dog nails on the tile and […]

This one time when my husband tried to set the house on fire…

March 24, 2010

As JPW mentioned on his weekly post, he almost burned down the kitchen, and I wish I was kidding.  He’s not a cook, in fact he sucks at it.  He ruined spaghetti, burnt rice and most recently set our toaster oven on fire.  And by fire I don’t mean a little smoke, I mean FIRE, flames, […]

6 Months ago…

March 12, 2010

. ..I pushed out a tiny baby at exactly this time. (I’m a nerd and set this post to publish at exactly 11:09a.m.)  Our hearts burst with love. We loved every inch of our 6lb 15oz baby girl.  She was perfect, slept well, loved to be held and was a breastfeeding champ!  And then she […]

She’s attached and we like it that way.

February 14, 2010

Before JPW and I had Ryann we talked about parenting styles and how we would care for our new baby.  We agreed to have Ryann in the bedroom with us until she slept through the night, we’d exclusively breasteed, follow her cues and let her show us what she needed in regards to sleeping and […]

That’s love…

January 30, 2010

The sweet smell of a freshly bathed baby, a love smack from your husband and some extra “me” time is wonderful; but buying underwear for your dad because he forgot to pack them…..that’s love baby! Other symptoms include a frequent urge to urinate despite having little urine and painful sexual intercourse Citing a series of […]

she’s perfect

November 13, 2009

I know she’s perfect, but when the doctor tells you she’s perfect it’s just reassuring and reaffirming what I already know. Ryann took her vaccines like a champ!! She cried the silent cry, I was worried, but then she stopped crying, looked at me and we cuddled over warm milk. Like I said, she’s perfect! […]

i’ll get better at this

October 5, 2009

That line comes to mind a lot, especially when Ryann and I are trying something together for the first time.  I know we have so much to learn together, and I find myself saying or thinking “I’ll get better at this…”  Thankfully Ryann doesn’t know that I think I’m “bad” at it (whatever it, may […]
