Sleep! Beautiful Sleep!

One of the best feelings in the world is waking up in the morning fully rested and realizing your little one has slept through the night. Immediately followed by the instant moment of panic that little one slept through the night. Which results in you checking to make sure they are ok, which usually ends up with them waking up and screaming because they realized … Read More Sleep! Beautiful Sleep!

Your shadow is watching: teaching by example.

I was thinking about my reflections on this weeks weekly topic and started to think, how can I teach Anastasia to love her self, and have confidence in herself, when I do not have the confidence or self-esteem myself. As you read in my previous post you know that this is something I struggle with but am improving and self reflecting. But to piggy-back off … Read More Your shadow is watching: teaching by example.

Thoughts on this weeks Weight Watcher Weekly Topic: You are so much more than a number

On this road to trying to lead a healthier lifestyle and get down to a healthier weight there is one thing that I have really worked on and struggled with and that is getting my mindset in the right place. Because living a healthy lifestyle is so much more than just exercising and losing weight. Many, like me, who have struggled with their weight … Read More Thoughts on this weeks Weight Watcher Weekly Topic: You are so much more than a number

The 6PM Switch: a discussion about colic, gripe water, and gas drops.

That’s right our poor little girl had a mild case of colic. Colic, if you don’t know, is a condition in which baby’s will cry for hours at a time with no clear cause. It usually happens at around the same time every day and although our girl’s case was a mild one (usually we are able to finally calm her down after 2 or 3 hours at most) there are some tips and tricks that we learned to help us along the way.

Another month just flies by

It’s crazy to think that 4 months has passed since Anastasia made her debut into this world. Our little girl certainly has a mind of her own and no one could tell her when to arrive she had to come on her own terms. She has flourished amazingly, is growing and eating great and we absolutely love her to bits. She’s 4 months old … Read More Another month just flies by

I hate it when you’re right.

When I was pregnant and would complain about being tired because I had to wake up and pee every 2 hours I was never met with sympathy but rather laughter and was told: Just wait and see how tired you’ll be when the baby is born. Then when other people would hear or find out we were expecting the most common phrase we were … Read More I hate it when you’re right.

My Why: A reminder at why I am choosing to be a healthier new me.

For any of my Weight Watchin’ buddies out there you know exactly what I am referring to. But for those of you who don’t know, when you join Weight Watchers you are told to choose a reason why, why you are doing what you’re doing. Everyone has their own reason for wanting to take back control of their body. They could be health related … Read More My Why: A reminder at why I am choosing to be a healthier new me.

5 ways to keep the romance alive after bringing home a newborn.

Since it was my 2 year anniversary yesterday it got me thinking. Romance doesn’t just die after you bring home a newborn. Granted, my type of romance isn’t your typical gifts and chocolates, although I do like to receive flowers. But rather it is things that we can do together or for one another. After Anastasia was born, since she was in the NICU … Read More 5 ways to keep the romance alive after bringing home a newborn.

Anniversaries: Before and after children.

So today marks mine and Joshua’s two year wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been two years since we got married. But things have definitely changed. For our first wedding anniversary it was just us two, we both took the day off, we reserved a table at a fancy restaurant, and we had a small photoshoot at home. Our outfits matched, we dressed up, … Read More Anniversaries: Before and after children.

Why this Mama wants to take back control of her body

So in all truth. I have been overweight my entire life, there’s no “beating around the bush” and I have probably tried every diet and weight-loss fad in the book but they never stuck. The only thing that has really worked for me was joining Weight Watchers, I had to stop doing it when I got pregnant but now that Anastasia is home and … Read More Why this Mama wants to take back control of her body

To build or not to build?

I’m not at that point in my motherhood where Anastasia likes stuffed animals (or toys in general) so this wasn’t even up for discussion at our house. But after reading the, somewhat amusing and laughable, reports of the chaos that ensued with Build-A-Bear‘s pay your age event. I have to ask, would you or would you not have taken part in this event? Personally. … Read More To build or not to build?
