Be CORAgeous!

It’s been a while since I have taken the time to discuss Vivian’s recent adventures. In the past couple of months she has enjoyed four plane rides (well, maybe only “enjoyed” two of them and “endured” the other two), one camping trip…in a tent, developed an obsession for Cheerios and yogurt, welcomed her first two […]

My Superhero Skills

I recently had a “milestone birthday”. Leading up to the big day, people were curious how I felt about turning the big “3-0.” I replied with excitement…and an enthusiastic “I get better with every year (wink).” Honestly though, this year in my life, this entrance into 30-hood, is coming with an entirely new set of […]

Sweet Potato Surprise…

It’s been an exciting time for Vivian lately. Recently, she has discovered how to eat her feet, push up to her knees during “tummy time”, enjoys sleeping in her crib (hallelujah), and was introduced to sweet potatoes. Our tall and skinny daughter was given the “okay” to begin real food! Each morning we start the […]

A Different Kind Of Pain

A Different Kind Of Pain

| April 20, 2011, 10:53 AM | 0 Comments

Pain begins as a physical thing I believe. As a child we get bruises or scrapes and the physical pain is felt instantaneously. Then we grow, and pain becomes an internal feeling, not necessarily as tangible or recognizable as the physical wound. Love, happiness, loss, heartbreak, etc. The emotions grow stronger with maturity and are […]

Some days I find myself exhausted beyond belief. It’s as if every muscle and bone in my body aches. Like I am too tired to function, think, or even unwind. These days I count down the minutes to when my husband walks in the door from work and greets Vivian and me. It’s like a […]

Sisterhood Of The Traveling Clothes…

Growing up I used to love to swap clothes with friends, cousins, etc.–especially if they were older. It was one of the most fun parts of being a girl. Sharing clothes with girlfriends was always such joy. Once I became an adult, the clothes sharing began to fade. People get busy, get married, have jobs […]

I Am <em>That</em> Mom!

I Am That Mom!

Never have I “eaten my words “so much as since I have become a mother. It’s funny how we look at other mom’s with their children in a store and think “how can she let that baby do that?”, then we become “that mom”. Since Vivian’s birth, I have so many times thought how wrong […]

Working On A Schedule

It is absolutely amazing how much our baby already “knows” me. She can sense my presence, energy, emotions, etc. I am certain of this. Last week I had a meltdown. For some reason, I believed Vivian should already be on a schedule of some sort (crazy, I know….call it my “type A” personality). I thought […]

Things My Sister Said…

I’ve heard the proverb “it takes a village to raise a child”, but never fully understood its truth. The physical support given by family and friends is important, but not nearly as crucial as the emotional support I have received during these past two months. Our baby girl is just two months old, and sometimes […]

How Quickly They Grow…

When my husband and I found out we were expecting, nine months seemed like an eternity. Before I knew it we were in the last trimester, registering for “baby goods” and packing our hospital bag. The time flew by. Now, as our baby girl grows older each day, I am amazed at the changes I […]

I’m Not Perfect…I’m Mom

I’m Not Perfect…I’m Mom

Motherhood is perhaps the only occupation and hobby where the participant actually expects perfection on the very first attempt…. As the proud, yet cautious, new mother to a beautiful five-week-old baby girl, I have learned quickly how the smallest accomplishments can change the way a new mom may feel from minute to minute. Learning to […]
