How do you start socializing a 16 month old? An only child? Any kid?
I have no idea where to start, or rather I didn’t but after talking with my friend Nick G I’m getting a better idea. He made some great suggestions and I’m going to follow up and research some ideas. Finding a swim class sounds really fun. My ninja LOVES water! I truly believe she’d live in the tub or the kiddie pool in our back yard if I let her.
Is this just an only child issue? Is it because I’m not a social person and have no friends with small children? Continue reading “Want to be my friend?”
Have you missed me?
I spent nine days at home for a staycation this year over the holiday and loved every minute! I got to spend all day, every day with my daughter.
It gave me a glimpse of what it would be like to be a stay at home mom. It was bittersweet. It taught me a great deal and gave me even more respect for all stay at home moms.
Being a working mom I feel that more often than not I see my co-workers more than I see my family. But at the same time I feel that I’m teaching Eme early that nothing is without sacrifice. Continue reading “Sewing with your left hand should be more fun…”
I know that I’ve been a mother, technically, since the moment of inception but this post isn’t about that. It’s about my first year as a mother to a living, breathing, human-being.
To say that it has changed me and my world is a total and complete understatement. Of course it has, if it didn’t I would completely judge myself. Creating, growing and nurturing a human being is a life changing experience. It is always on my mind.

Why don’t I understand all her cries and whines? Shouldn’t I know these things by now? Why do they keep changing? Continue reading “#Momlife: Year One”
You’re ONE YEARS OLD today!!!
I just want to thank you for bringing so much love and laughter into my life. Daddy and I are forever changed by you.
Watching you change over the last year has been so emotional for us. Each day is an adventure.
You’re everything I never knew I wanted and now that you’re here I don’t know what I would have ever done without you.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL!!
Holy crap, in six weeks I’m having a kid!! Well six weeks and give or take whenever she decides it’s time to make her debut. It’s gone by so very fast! At the beginning I thought “Man, this is going to be a long 9 months” and now I’m more like “Man, where the hell did time go!??!”

Each week has been amazing to me. I’ve become obsessed over every movement and talk to her all the time. I think she already listens really well, did I tell you she can count? I tap 3 times on my belly and she’ll tap three times back. Already the smartest kid EVER! Ok so maybe I’m crazy and slightly bias but I DON’T CARE! I’m supposed to be right?
