on Samuel Robert: 10 months

I canNOT believe my teeny little baby will be one in two months. Sixty measly days until he is a whole year old. What is this mama time-warp?? It's like this space time continuam where the days go by slow-fast, and they're full of diapers and laundry and not sleeping...

on being a working mom

I haven't been a working mom for very long - just shy of 7 months now. I am the social networking and webinar manager for a non-profit ministry resource company, and work 20ish hours/week mostly from home. There are a lot of things going on there: social networking: I...

on the First Day

of October!!----------One of the reasons I love blogging is that I love to read blogs. I'm a big ol' snoop. If I use your bathroom, chances are I may have peeked in your medicine cabinet. I KNOW!! It's a character flaw. I just love getting a glimpse into your lives!...

on community: (in)couraging Working New Moms

An event, planned by a stranger whose heart I know, prompted a text from a new friend. We'd host together. She invited her friends. One of them thought she may know me - an email sent confirmed it. I had been her counselor at camp a hundred years ago. That week by the...

on fall-ing

It's here. Even to the cynics who resist all things pumpkin until it's under 60* / after school starts / September is over - it's here for them too. And for us diehard lovers, the ones who listen to October Road year round, whose hearts palpitate for pumpkin spice...

on Samuel Robert: 9 months

My sweet exploring adventurer boy. He is so like his daddy - loves the outside more than anything, always taking risks and being all fearless. He not only climbs on top of stuff, but now pulls himself up on said stuff. Uff da. I never worried about going grey until...

on what I could tell you

I could tell you about The Boy's 9-month doctor visit yesterday, which was only thought-provoking in that I thought we brought him in for his 3-day check last week. He's lost weight in the last three months, due to his ridiculously busy and insanely active little...

on things i haven’t told you yet

My Boy is nearing his 9 month birthday, and I've started planning his first birthday celebration! Though it's three months away yet, I'm convinced that you can't start too early, especially for something around the holidays. You can plan along with me by following my...

on being happy

Just popping in to say hello, friends =) I hope you are well. I miss you, but I'm trying to be more present with my baby and Husby and get my hours for work in, and unfortunately that means my personal writing comes in last. BUT today we asked a good friend if she'd...

on Samuel Robert: 8 months

 This month has been so fun. Sam has been so full of joy and giggles, loving to play and snuggle. He's learned this cheesy grin, it stretches from ear to ear and brings his two teeth up to meet his top gums and makes his eyes all squintyadorable. Sometimes he bats his...
