We’re expecting baby #2 in September! Considering Sweet T pitches a fit when I show attention to a cat or a small dog this will be quite an adjustment for her. Eventually though I think she’ll make a great big sister. 😉

I’ve always envied the easy-going personality time. What must it be like to truly not care whether or not the living room is dusted, to not stress out if I’m running late, or get my panties in a wad if people aren’t doing their fair share (have I mentioned I’m a martyr?) Before the term […]

Sweet T has her share of licensed and battery-operated toys that she enjoys, but I know the toys that will be valued most and passed down to future generations are some of the most simple.

Finding Time to Blog

People ask me, “Jenn, how do you find time to blog?” Oh it’s easy when your toddler entertains herself.  Hubs came home from work that day and said, “What did you let her do!?”  Not every day is like this obviously, but if a destroyed office/guest room will allow me to meet a few deadlines […]

My aunt put a couple of mesh infant feeders in Sweet T’s stocking this past Christmas and this week I decided to see if she was ready for them. She was! I put some plum pieces in there and you’d think she’d died and gone to heaven. There’s video at the end of the post.

Sweet T’s entertainment demands have escalated in the past few weeks leaving me worn out from trying to keep her happy. Every waking moment she is taking in as much of the world as she can. As much as I’d like to think this is because she is the smartest baby ever, it seems to […]

I decided to try my hand at making a wool diaper cover using this free crochet diaper cover pattern from Rebecca at Ravelry.

The Sleepeasy Solution

I’ll never forget Sweet T’s newborn photo session. It was special, adorable, and professional but what stuck out most in my mind was Sweet T being uncooperative unless swaddled and wide awake for 90% of the session. Our photographer asked, “What sleep training methodology are you using?” After thinking sleep training methowha?? I snorted and […]
