three years ago yesterday

Kiddo's birthday was yesterday. There was just enough family, there were way too many presents, there is never enough cake. She had a crazy fabulous fun time. I can't believe I have a three year old. You'd think I'd get used to it eventually but so far, nope. She's a blessing and a source of... Continue Reading →

in which i ramble

Just so you know the status, I have a massive headache and am grumpy today. Now you're up to date. In happy news, my nails look pretty in that trashy Barbie kind of way and the countdown is now at six days. All of that seems incredibly petty with all that is going down in the world these days. It... Continue Reading →

here i sit

In an exam room at my doctor's office that is. They got me into a room without the usual one hour wait so that was nice. Of course, the doc might not get in here for another week or so. Scratch that. He'll be here soon I'm sure. I'm trying to think more positively lately.... Continue Reading →

template stuff & a sam pic

I'm thinking of changing my template again. I'm very partial to the current one but...you guessed it...I'm bored, need a change...oh well, in the meantime, here's a picture of Sam being goofy. In this particular instance she would get into this position, then turn her head to look at me and say "poop", then resume... Continue Reading →

the vicks thing

Oh, so I've gotten several questions about what in the world was I doing, where did I hear of such a thing, you are a crazy person...regarding putting Vicks Vapor Rub on Sam's feet at night to help with the congestion/coughing. I read about it once on a mommy message board but never tried it... Continue Reading →

sam check up

Just a quickie for family to read about Sam's doctor visit today. It was just for a check up and to get 2 immunizations. All is ok but there was a slight concern that she is losing weight, and not gaining at an appropriate level. She's dropped below the 50th percentile and is only just... Continue Reading →

stuff and things

Seems like it's been forever since I posted but its really only been a few days I guess. Things are, eh. The work front is causing me major stress, depression and just general ickiness. But I can't really write about all that here so suffice it to say, it sucks. Otherwise, things are great. Sam is... Continue Reading →

Dear Sam,

You might find this interesting when you get older. Or just further testament to your mother's weird quirkiness. Anywho. Your father has gotten into this incredibly adorable habit of calling you "Buttercup" or "Butternut". Don't ask me what the whole "butter" theme is all about but isn't that the cutest thing? Your mother (that's me),... Continue Reading →

for mom & grandma T

I don't want this blog to become the Sam Channel but I will intersperse teeny clips of babygirl every once in a while for your amusement (well ok, mostly for my mother and Grandma T's amusement). I'm not sure what's funnier about this one...The Accountant singing "Shake Your Booty" or Sam's dancing to it. Soon... Continue Reading →

dental hygiene

How many times can I sing-song "brush your teeth....yay" in this clip? I remember how I used to roll my eyes at mom's talking this way and now look at me. I even annoy myself. Ha. And I promise I'm not checking my email or texting here! I'm trying to video us both in the mirror... Continue Reading →

mom stuff

Sam will be moving up to the Toddler room on Oct 1! Until then, there will be short visits each day to get her used to it. I am not ready for this. She doesn't even "toddle" yet! It makes me teary. My car smelled like poo this morning. This was after I had already... Continue Reading →

yeah, i dunno either

Why I'm still up at this hour I mean. It seems that if I want to do anything non-baby related, I have to do it late at night when the house is quiet and my mind is not so manic. Besides, I had some work to catch up on since procrastination is my homeboy and now that... Continue Reading →

fam filled weekend

This past weekend I stuffed my Element full of enough baby equipment to seriously hurt somebody and hit the road. Sam did so-so until about Paris. The new forward-facing car seat is not as sleep friendly as the infant seat and she'd finally had enough of the head lolling and freaked out. I pulled over in... Continue Reading →
