What I plan on doing different with Baby #2

What I plan on doing different with Baby #2

I’ve been thinking a lot about our little girl coming into the world lately and how different (and awesome) it’s going to be this time around. I know the sleepless nights are going to suck, big time and I know adjusting to two children won’t be easy but I’m of course really looking forward to […]

Essentials to bring to the ER

Essentials to bring to the ER

We ended up in the ER last night with Caden. He had some trouble breathing and was wheezing around dinner time so I called our Pediatrician and it being after hours they recommended us taking him to the ER. After some chest x-rays and a couple breathing treatments he was feeling much better and we […]

Can a Toddler Sense a New Baby Coming?

Can a Toddler Sense a New Baby Coming?

I went back and forth about whether or not I should discuss this here on my blog; I struggle with how much information I should give out over the internet versus keeping some things in our life private. But after much thought, I’m hoping that one of my readers have been through this and may […]

Consignment Sale Shopping

Consignment Sale Shopping

I went to my first consignment sale last year and found a few shirts, shoes and toys for Caden. I loved that everything was so cheap and pretty much brand new. I always hear about so many moms finding amazing stuff so I decided to try out another one and see if I could get […]

Our Freakishly Easy Transition to the Big Boy Bed

Our Freakishly Easy Transition to the Big Boy Bed

I have heard so many horror stories about transitioning toddlers to a big kid bed that I’ve been really terrified about transitioning Caden. However, when we first found out we were pregnant with our second child we knew that Caden would be switching rooms and transitioning to a big bed before she was born. We […]

Ear Infection or Teething

Ear Infection or Teething

This past weekend Caden has been really cranky. I mean really cranky. He’s been waking up in the middle of the night numerous times, crying out, looking for his paci. This isn’t normal but then again he’s also teething and nothing is normal when it comes to teething. One minute he would be playing, happy […]

Getting Rid of the Pacifier: Update

Getting Rid of the Pacifier: Update

As you may remember we took away Caden’s paci a few weeks ago. I can thankfully say that things are going really, really well. It took him literally less then a week to understand that the Paci stays in the crib. As soon as he wakes up, and I get him changed I ask him […]

Getting rid of the Pacifier

Getting rid of the Pacifier

We have always planned on letting Caden have his paci until he turned 2. We’ve always thought that two was a pretty fair age. He’s young enough so it doesn’t create a huge attachment problem but old enough to understand that pacifiers are for babies. So, that was pretty much the plan until Nate made […]

Inducted into Parenthood

Inducted into Parenthood

It happened. Nate and I were inducted into Parenthood last night. The first round of chunks flew about 9pm. I called for back up (thank God Nate was home). He took the crib while I took Caden. After some new sheets, blankets, PJ’s and a little water, back to bed CK went. Or so we […]
