A day of recovery.


Friday night was amazing. Baby went to bed at a resonable time without much boobing so my husband and I got to watch a movie. We have had difficulty getting in couple time lately so this was awesome. Snacks and a movie.. we chose Hangover 3. It was funny and a nice distraction.

Saturday night, on the other hand, was a little less fun. Our dog is 18 years old and not doing so well. 3am rolled around and I was woken up by a terrible smell. A living nightmare all over the floor next to my side of the bed. Drew is having difficulty walking with his back legs so it appeared he had to go potty, couldn’t get up, went on the floor and then rolled in it. ūüė¶ Nothing like running the steam cleaner at 3am. Of course this woke up and excited the baby who then wouldn’t go back to bed until 5:30. I got to sleep until 8:30 and then he was up again. COFFEE. Thank the heavens for coffee.

So now, it’s Sunday night and we had a relaxing day taking care of the pup and loving on the baby. (Who napped gloriously, yay!)

The babe is 5 months old and teething so I broke down today and made a purchase that I had been eyeing for a¬†while on Bannor Toys instagram account.¬†We got the shark teether for Jude to stick with our nautical theme. Plus, it’s super cute! I cannot wait to get this order! My little guy is suffering and I’m beating myself up for not ordering this sooner. Pics and a review once it comes in.


Oh, hello world!


I am a mommy to a 5 month old son.

I have to let that sink in for a few minutes. Knock around my brain a bit. Every morning starts out the same for me. I look to my side for my baby, I blink a few times, I smile, I blink some more. This tiny (but not so tiny) human is my son. He made me a mommy. It doesn’t register very quickly in my head and I’m glad that it doesn’t. It’s almost like Groundhog Day for me¬†because each new morning I get to marvel in his perfectness and squishyness. His gentle smirk and soft skin. I am his Mommy and he is my son; I am so happy.

This is a place for me to talk about milestones and gush about my kid. I also want to review products that I use and find helpful (and some that aren’t so helpful). More than anything I want to vent and learn and share. I miss working outside of the home and I hope that blogging will help me reach a few new friends to combat the loneliness that comes with being a momma at home.

Thanks for reading and I hope to talk soon!
