A few nights ago I spent some time working on Sawyer’s first birthday invitations. I couldn’t find any that were just right for the theme so I decided to design them myself. By the time I looked at the clock it was 11:00 p.m. I couldn’t believe how much time I had spent moving … [Read more...] about All these little messes

An Update on Sawyer
In an earlier post I discussed that my anxiety had been growing because Sawyer seemed somewhat “floppy.” This was something that I noticed early on.

Aside from the flight (I absolutely hate flying if you didn’t already know that), I am so excited and happy to just be there. I have not seen my sister Cindi since June or my sister Jennifer … [Read more...] about We’re Off to Disney World!
The Mommy Ladder
You know that thing they call the “corporate ladder”? Well, I just stepped off of it and got onto the “Mommy Ladder”. I resigned from my job on Thursday. After six months of working myself to the point of utter physical and mental exhaustion I decided I had had enough. Most … [Read more...] about The Mommy Ladder
