Don’t Walk Away From Me…

Posted by: on May 12, 2016 | 2 Comments
The last week of April was a BIG week in our house. My son, just shy of being 19 months old, finally got up on his two feet and walked. An early crawler, like his sister, he's been on the move since he was 7 months old. Also like his sister, he started pulling up to standing long before his first birthday but decided that walking just wasn't for him. We've been trying to encourage him to stand and walk- using a walker or holding our hands. We did everything we could think of to get him to just Read more [...]

Just a quick shout out to Ryder and the gang at the Look Out... The last month of our lives has been absolutely B-A-N-A-N-A-S: kids getting sick one after another, visits from out of town family, trips to the country to visit family, a 24-hour roadtrip to Maine, tax season for my accountant hubby....oh, and Hubby also happens to be running for a position on our City Council. That's right- an election smack dab in the middle of tax season means that the month of March was even more upside down Read more [...]

Hello out there! I know I've told you all before just how much we love Baby/Kids Gourmet in our house, but I'm back to tell you about some awesome new products they have. (Plus, we've added a member to our family since the last time I talked about them!) Now, I have not just one, but TWO picky eaters who don't necessarily eat all of the vegetables that I'd like for them to (or that they should). This is where Squoosh and Slammers Snacks come in to play! Squoosh Snacks are the only organic Read more [...]
In Honour of World Prematurity Day 2015: An Update

In Honour of World Prematurity Day 2015: An Update

Posted by: on Nov 17, 2015 | One Comment
Last year, on November 17th, I wrote about what had been our very recent experience with our own premature baby and our time in the NICU. I shared our story in honour of World Prematurity Day, despite how hard it was for me to think about, let alone write about and share with the world. At the time, I felt like I had poured my heart into that post, but deep down, I knew I was holding back admitting aloud just how much pain I had experienced. I also knew that there was no way I could ever truly articulate Read more [...]

Yes, things have been very quiet here on the blog for some time... I know. There has been so much action and there have been so many in changes in our lives over the last several months, and yet I have not had the proper mindset to sit down and write about any of them. Here is the biggest change: my maternity leave has ended, and I am now back to work  on a full-time basis. You might think that being the second time around, it would be easier, but you would be sorely mistaken. There are no words Read more [...]

I haven't written much lately. I am sorry for that. Sorry for my readers, and sorry for future me who may be looking back at some point and wanting to relive some memories. The truth is, I've been working hard these last few weeks, and my blog has unintentionally been relegated to last place for the time being. With the warm weather arriving, my son finally being on the go and crawling everywhere, I decided that I had had enough of complaining about "not feeling like me" and being unhappy with Read more [...]

Making homemade food for my babies is something that is very important to me. I like knowing exactly what is being put into their little bodies as I introduce "solids". There will be plenty of time for quick, processed meals and junk food later in life. For the earliest meals, however, I like to feel like I have some control, and I've made making my own baby food a priority. Fortunately there are some really amazing resources out there to help in the process of preparing and coming up with new Read more [...]
