Last night I learned that 9 month old babies (namely ours) do not like to have foreign objects inserted into their nose, especially if said object is also squirting some kind of liquid inside. I’m sure this will one day change though when she realizes that by poking her little finger into said nose she’ll be able to… Continue reading Mission Almost Impossible: The Saline Nose Dropper
There is a part of my subconscious (the stronger part) that is doing the bob and weave and saying “really, that’s all you’ve got?

Basically how warped my mind felt. I love talking to… Continue reading From Purse to Diaper Bag
A couple days ago my husband took Celeste and I to the beach to enjoy the beautiful warm day we were having. Since Celeste’s birth we hadn’t really been out much with her and most of the outings we did have with her had been for doctor appointments, so it felt great to be out together… Continue reading A gift to myself
