This week has been full of its ups and downs, as most are. Our dear friends welcomed their sweet baby boy into the world, we came home from a weekend away, and we also all got sick, meaning that we’ve had a fussy Baby J and a tired mama and dada. That’s all part of … Continue reading

As a couple of our close friends anticipate the arrival of their son, I have been thinking a ton about pregnancy, birth, and the new life that is about to come into this world.

Initially, we didn’t have any real interest in using cloth diapers for Baby J. Let me rephrase that, Mr. Wonderful didn’t have any real interest in cloth diapering Baby J. He was so opposed to it. To be honest, I can’t blame him. Washing poop??? REUSING diapers? Really?! It sounds horrible, right? Well, it was … Continue reading

9 months

9 months

It’s hard for me to believe, but Baby J is 9 months old already. He has grown and become this little man ALREADY. He is strong-willed, independent, loving, affectionate, silly, stubborn, active and determined. Each day with him, I am so incredibly blessed to be able to watch him grow and develop and just become … Continue reading
