On having a two year old.

September 19, 2011

There are countless words, new and old; short, demanding sentences softened with please and thank you. There is a big girl bed, with six pillows protecting the precious 24lb. toddler.  Five pees on the potty,  three poop catches and one obnoxious potty congratulatory dance.  There is blond hair long enough to put in a short […]

Schedules.

May 3, 2011

Up until 2 years ago I lived by a schedule.  When I was working, every minute of my day was planned.  I love schedules and plans and activities to look forward to.  But as soon as Ryann was born, my brain stopped craving the schedules, I blame it on the newborn slash survival days.  No […]

My thoughts on….well, I’ll spare you.

April 1, 2011

It’s been a while, I know you’re nodding your head in agreement.  My mind is flooded with thoughts, clouding my focus and sometimes crippling me.   I almost wish I was void of thought, I’d have less to think and/or worry about. I’ve thought about blogging A LOT.  And well, that should count for something. For […]

Farting is funny.

March 4, 2011

Ryann was up crying at 6am.  This is sort of unusual now a days…so I changed her and brought her back to bed with us.  Snuggled under the covers between JPW and I, she tucked herself into my arms and stroked her beloved blanket.  Her wispy blond hair tickled my nose as I took in […]

It’s only a phase.

February 11, 2011

In the early hours of the morning, when no one else was awake and Ryann was screaming JPW and I would bounce, shush and sway, I’d tell myself… “it’s only a phase.” When I needed to be pressed up against her so she would sleep more than twenty minutes, I’d tell myself…“it’s only a phase.” […]

What happened to meeting friends the old fashioned way?

February 4, 2011

So I mentioned last week that I joined Stroller Strides and was starting to make some friends. Most of the women keep telling me to join the meet up group and check out the other “mom meet ups”. I finally get around to checking out the meet up groups that are age appropriate for Ryann […]

Teeth.

January 31, 2011

“Crunch” “Snap” “Chomp” Ryann signs “more” for another cracker, and I oblige.  Sitting and watching her bite and chew so methodically, my mind wanders back to the first time she ate a cookie with her new, baby teeth.  A sound I’ll never forget, that first snap of a baby cookie, with her two front teeth.

Active learner.

January 20, 2011

Ryann is a very active toddler.  Which is odd to me because as an infant she just laid there, she was a late roller and mover.  She learned to sit up unassisted early and then just sat or laid most of the time.  She would babble and shriek and grab for toys within her reach, […]

New word.

January 19, 2011

oakley outlet We’ve reach a new toddler milestone at the Williams’ house.  It starts with an N and ends with an O.  And goes something like this: “Ryann, may I have a kiss?” “No, no, no.” “Ryann, please get your sippy cup off the floor.” “No, no, no.” “Ryann, it’s time to change your stinky […]
