Potty Training….Again

So many things have changed around our house over the last two months so it's no wonder Sweet Girl regressed on all the progress she had made as far as potty training goes. Accidents all over the floor, using her diapers for poop instead of telling us she needed to go to the bathroom. It …

Mom Guilt – Just Let It Go

It's amazing how much more difficult it is to have a second baby. It's easy to think you know what to expect because you've done it before, but it is so much more than you can even imagine - or at least than I imagined. I knew before having Little Squish that things would change …

Snacking While Breastfeeding

The first time around I was astonished at how hungry I was all the time. All day every day I felt like I needed to be putting food in my mouth. The problem was, I never had any what I wanted to or could eat. I was woefully unprepared for the snacking needs of a …

Home, Sweet Home – Ready for Baby

The only thing I love about moving is getting to organize everything. Choosing where dishes will go in the kitchen, arranging furniture in every room. It makes me giddy just thinking about it. This move is also special because I finally get to put together all of Baby's things. I get to set up my …

Elimination Communication for the WIN!

What's better than being pregnant again, expecting another bundle of joy? Knowing that I won't have to deal with two babies in diapers. Whew! I know a lot of parents don't have this issue, waiting 3+ years before trying for baby number two, or whatever number you're on. But we will have two under two …

How the Breastfeeding Relationship Changes Over Time

Every breastfeeding relationship is different. Moms have different desires, babies have different needs, there are different circumstances to work around. This is just how my relationship with Sweet Girl has gone, and the basic outline it seems to take, at least from my perpective.

Baby Sign Language

Being sick when you're a parent is terrible. Your little one is a ball of energy and all you want to do is burrow into your blankets and binge-watch Netflix all day. I can now say from experience (thank you laryngitis) that not being able to talk to your child may be even worse. I …

Sweet Girl is Dairy Free

Pinterest is my go to for so many things. My number one reason for using Pinterest - meal ideas. I love cooking and baking but I am not very creative or imaginative when it comes down to it. So having all the wonderful bloggers posting fantastic recipes is great for our dinner plans. My current …

Keep on Breastfeeding

Let me start this post by saying that I understand that what works for one family doesn't work for another. I believe that breastfeeding is the best option for all babies, but also know that it is not always possible or what's best for mom.  We have been breastfeeding for almost 15 months now. And …
