MTV Cribs: Sidney Style

IMG_5453

I joke about the MTV cribs thing. If she was on MTV cribs she would have a six car garage filled with Bentleys and would open her nursery door in a bikini and 5 inch heels. Instead, she's wearing a onesie and socks, sleeping in her seat next to me while I sit at the kitchen island. Here's the tour of her "crib;" finally finished after living here for almost 3 months! I'll list details of Continue Reading

Letters to my Daughter: Two Months

2-months

Dear Sidney, I can’t believe you’ve been with us for two months now! It seems like it was yesterday you were born while at the same time it feels like you’ve been with us forever. You’re a perfect baby who loves to sleep, eats well and doesn’t complain about anything. Some of your favorite things are smiling at Daddy’s songs and at your big brother. The bond between you and your brother Continue Reading

Triple Action Purex Review

One of my favorite features of our new home is the laundry room. In our townhouse, our “laundry room” was a stackable unit, tucked in a closet behind the door to Jackson’s bedroom. It was not easy to get to and almost impossible to get out with a basket of laundry. The layout made me hate laundry for the five years we lived there- just ask my husband, he did 90% of the laundry!

When Life Gets in the Way

Sorry I haven’t written much lately. This has been a tough month and we’re only 12 days in. Our best friend’s (and Godfather to Sidney) brain tumor hemorrhaged, my Mom’s cousin found out she had breast cancer (her Mom & sister died of the same cancer), Jackson & Sidney have been sick and to the pediatrician/hospital more times than I want to count and then there are the holidays. I keep Continue Reading

I wonder if Fisher Price had that in mind…

I posted a picture of Sidney on Facebook yesterday because her brother had stuffed her swing with his trains. So cute, right?! Until one of my Mother's friends had a little too much wine and made this comment: "This carrier looks like a vagina!" I'll admit, she's got a point. I wonder if Fisher Price had a vagina in mind when they designed their Fisher Price Butterfly Papasan Swing? Continue Reading

Pregnancy & Baby Pictures

Here are my weekly pregnancy photos with both Jackson & Sidney. Unfortunately, it's much more difficult to take weekly pictures while moving and raising a 1 year old so there are less weekly shots with Sidney's pregnancy. I didn't feel like taking pictures while heavier than usual & bloated, but I'm so glad I documented both kids' pregnancies.     That first Continue Reading

A Special Request for You

peter1

I’m not a super-religious person, but I’m asking for your prayers. Our good friend and Godfather to Sidney was diagnosed with a brain tumor back in April of this year. Peter is the 33 year old loving husband to my best friend and an amazing father to two year old Tysen (Jackson’s best buddy) and brand new baby Luke (only three weeks old). Peter completed his radiation therapy this summer and Continue Reading
