Shifting Focus

I was raised in a slightly obscure faith.  One that people may have heard of, but often misunderstand.  Even within that faith, I go to a non traditional church.  I am used to people misunderstanding my church or thinking differently than I do.  And that's OK.

Motherhood Monday-The Vaccination Decision

I'm one of those mothers who chose to vaccinate her child.  But on days like today, days where we go to the pediatrician and get 3 shots and my sweet little monkey cries real tears and wimpers for several minutes after I've calmed him down, I wish I wasn't one of those moms.

Motherhood Monday- We LOVE Animals!

My sweet boy just loves animals.  I told you before that the little guy totally loves our cats.  Up until now, he hasn't really met our dogs.  I brought him down to meet them a time or two, but he was very little and I was wearing him.  So, they sniffed his head...the end.

We have big dogs, and they don't come in the house much (not at all since Baby was born), and I'd been nervous to have them around him, since they are still somewhat young and very energetic.  But, this weekend, our friend's dog turned 10, and she had a birthday party for her.  Silly?  Yes.  Fun?  Of course!  I really wanted to bring the dogs, since they were in desperate need of some attention and a good outing.

Unfortunately, Baby was sleeping when we took the birthday photos, but here is a party photo, anyhow.

Motherhood Monday-A New Kind of Normal

 Life is busy when you are a new mom.  I keep wondering when things are going to get normal, again.  But, then I realize, they won't.  Just like I will never be a teenager, again, I will never not be a mom.  This is my normal.  And I need to embrace it.

Mustache Day

Did you figure out your clue?  Baby was celebrating Mustache Day!

So, I know that mustaches are a little kitsch right now.  Typically, I try to avoid oober trendy things.  But, when one of the silly boys at my office suggested we have a mustache day, I had to get on board.  I love themed things.  It gives me an excuse to be a little creative!

Stay Tuned

I'm working on a craft mini-tutorial for you.  I hope you can see it on Sunday!  In the meantime, check out this hint on what it is.

Clue:  Remember I said CRAFT tutorial.  I will not be telling you how to make cute babies.  This is not the place for that.

Motherhood Tuesday

Sorry I missed you for Motherhood Monday.  Better late than never?

Brandon and I celebrated our anniversary last Friday, so I had my first night away from Baby.  Brandon has had to leave a couple times since Baby was born, so it wasn't a first for him.  But, it was for me.  Luckily, we left him with this lovely lady (aka, my Mommy), so I felt alright about it.
