Dear mama, You've just come through it, haven't you? I remember the complete shock when my first child was born. My first thought was "Whoa, heavy!" It was a water birth & as soon as he was in my arms, I realized why it was so crazy carrying him those last few weeks- 9 lbs… Continue reading How to Recover from Birth
At first I was going to title this, "How I trained baby #2 to sleep through the night". But, I decided to drop the second part because she only *just* started sleeping through and so this post is mostly about promoting baby sleep. That's what the past almost year has been like!

I figured that I would… Continue reading What Type of Parent I am
I’ve gotta write this down. It’s entitled “Postpartum Bliss” because that’s what this season has been.

Part of me feels like I’m holding my breath, having squeaked by the first 6 weeks with only low moments, that I’m able to come out… Continue reading Postpartum Bliss
