Sobbing and Sneezes

This afternoon, I dropped Greg off at the airport as he is flying out to San Francisco for a business trip. I have been dreading this all week. I am going to miss him...

Cuddling or Kleenex? 3

Cuddling or Kleenex?

Adrianna has been extra sweet these past couple of days. She has always enjoyed it when I lay on the floor, as she can then crawl all over her mommy-gym. Today, as usual, she...

No More Nursing 2

No More Nursing

Well, I think I am done breastfeeding Adrianna. It wasn’t by my choice; it was by hers. The last few times I have attempted to nurse, she wasn’t too interested. Instead, I was given...

My Little Mimic 3

Baby and her Bears 1

Baby and her Bears

Our normal bedtime routine with Adrianna includes rocking her to sleep, using our glider chair. Glider chairs are such a blessing for new parents, by the way. While I rock her, I either sing...

My Favorite Children’s Music 1

My Favorite Children’s Music

I listen to a lot of children’s music with Adrianna. It is funny, because I am finding myself enjoying most of it. Even so, I do prefer some albums over others. I thought I...

We finally got around to buying some outlet covers at Walmart today. So now our downstairs level is mostly childproof, with the exception of a couple cords that Adrianna likes to grab and twirl...

Getting a Clue 1

Getting a Clue

This weekend was spent with Shad and Lynette. That seems to be a common way for us to spend our weekends now that they have made the move to Colorado, and I wouldn’t have...
