Making baby bibs

So…I made two baby bibs. One the regular style, one bandana bib style. I’m thinking about trying to sell them. I’m wanting to make some extra money but stay at home with Theodore. What do y’all think? Would you buy one? Currently they are Velcro closure but going to buy a snap device because Velcro…

9 months of Theodore Jackson (a few days late)

Can you believe it’s been 9 months (and 4 days) since Theodore was born!? I sure can’t! It feels like time has flown!  This boy is such a joy to us and everyone tells us how chill and relax a baby he is.  Usually is he one happy, smiley, giggly baby who is very attached…

Meeting Santa

So… I have a hard time dealing with Santa. I found out at a very young age (like 4/5) that Santa wasn’t real. I was that kind of kid that hated being lied to and took it very personally.  Growing up I still never liked the idea lying to nieces, cousins, the general childhood population….

Breastfeeding Tree Art Photos

I don’t know if you guys have seen these breastfeeding “selfie” tree art photos going around on social media. They are so beautiful so I decided to make a few and I am in love with them! I am seriously debating having some blown up and hang it on my walls! 

Happy Thanksgiving from our ill little family & a pic update

Well, I’ve been sick for the last 3 weeks which I attributed to allergies since I haven’t been able to take my normal allergy medicine because of breastfeeding.  Three days ago Theodore woke up stuffed up and has been coughing, sneezing, wheezing, runny nose, stuffed up, and an on again and off again fever, with…

So conflicted

de Quervain’s stenosing tenosynovitis

Yeah, that crazy long thing in the title. I have it. It’s also called “mommy’s thumb”.  During pregnancy both my wrists started hurting and I was told it would go away after I gave birth. It didn’t. The left one hurts rarely. The right one on a regular basis. The best way I can describe…

Rolling over, teething, kinda siting, & my new normal

(Pics of Theodore at the end) I’m sorry I have been so silent as of late. I have been trying to get the grasp on being a stay at home mom. I have been trying to keep up with everyone else though as best I can.  Theodore is thriving! We are completely breastfed. No supplementing…

Crockpot Chicken, veggies, and dumplings 

Per the request of one of my friends here is one of my crockpot meals. I have now become a crockpot fanatic since having Theodore. 90% of the time our meals are from the crockpot.  Ingredients: 3 whole Idaho potatoes, diced small 3 whole carrots, diced small 1 whole onion, diced Handful of Italian Parsely,…
