Happy 2 months birthday to my little man today. Has it really been two months already?? Time sure goes by a lot faster the second time around. In honor of his two months birthday, I made a “memory book” on Snapfish using pictures I converted to black and white from the day of his birth. I plan to order one for me and one to give him when he’s older. And here are the kids a week ago. :)

The nice thing about going grocery shopping at 10:30 at night is there’s nobody there. Seriously. I got to Safeway at 10:15 tonight and there were maybe 3 other shoppers. By the time I left at 10:45, the place was empty. The bad thing about going shopping that late at night is that I’d much rather be home watching a movie on the couch or asleep in bed. :oP Oh well, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.

I’ve been a bit wrapped up in this whole “having a new baby and caring for a 2 1/2 year old thing” lately, and as a result, totally missed “National Delurking Week” Jan. 8-12 (started by Paper Napkin). So I’ve decided that I’m going to have my very own Unofficial Delurking Week this week – Jan. 22-26. (And I say feel free to designate your own delurking week too if you missed the official one.) I know there are a lot of you who visit on a regular basis, but for one reason or another have not yet commented. This is your chance to sayRead More →

Ooh, just realized this is post #401 for me. Wow! That’s a lot of posting over the past couple years! I’m not a big fan of Dr. Phil, but was happy to learn he was having the Sears doctors (Dr. William Sears and sons, Dr. James Sears and Dr. Robert Sears) on a show on Friday called “Young Moms Ask the Experts.” I didn’t get a chance to watch the episode, but I did read about it on Dr. Phil’s website and was happy with how it all unfolded. The topics they covered ranged from PPD (postpartum depression) to discipline issues to bonding with yourRead More →

Accompanied by my sister, Ava, Julian and I, along with some friends, went to check out a preschool program at a farm located a few miles from our house yesterday. The woman who owns the farm met with us and gave us a tour while explaining some of the basics about the program and filling us in on the various animals we saw along the way. Here’s a blurb about the program from their website: Every day is an adventure, designed to inspire wonder and growth and give your young child a sense of rural lifestyle. Even on cold days we will bundle up, climbRead More →
