Brandon learns to make noise

It's official. We are a family with home videos. I know those families get a lot of shit, but back off. My child  will be able to see what he acted like when he was a baby. And I'm sure he's going to love seeing himself on the tv, seeing how much he loves himself... Continue Reading →

sleepless in omaha

Last night was my first sleepless night in a long time. Now don't get me wrong, I have been awake with this baby for certain periods every night. But for the last two months or so, he's spoiled me by eating and then falling back asleep. In 30 minutes, I'm back in bed. The days... Continue Reading →

blast from the past

Today I found my first blog post ever. It was a livejournal account that I completely forgot about and assumed closed itself down. I didn't know livejournal still existed. I thought it closed down once myspace and Facebook took over people rambling on about themselves. But this morning, I received a nice surprise in my... Continue Reading →

There aren't many of those on the road anymore, so I immediately waxed nostalgic about my old one. This one was identical. Except for the... Continue Reading →

Mr. Independent

 Hope you all had a Happy 4th of July. July 4th marked 3 months from Brandon's birthday. We weighed and measured him for his baby book. 16.2 lbs, 26 inches. It's hard to believe he used to be half this weight. I've struggled with him being in daycare a little. He has a cough now,... Continue Reading →

first to go

Week one of being a working mother completed. I must say - it is exhausting. I wake up at 6am now. I shower, feed the baby, bathe and clothe him, groom and dress myself, eat breakfast, then drop him off at daycare. I go to work where I am frantically trying to learn my new... Continue Reading →
