arr Chronicles

June 22, 2011 When writing the post about the past week I wrote a bit about the Mommy & Me group I've started to attend....then I took a break (actually many, as duty, aka Abby, called) and when I was nursing Abby I started thinking about the group and all the different babies & mommies who attend. So I'll start off with what I wrote in...
June 22, 2011  So I'm working on a more detailed post since we had quite a busy week, but I had to share.  Last week we finally started attending the Mommy & Me group that Kaiser hosts every week.  When nursing Abby this morning at home she was trying to poop, but just couldn't get it out so I knew I was in trouble.  I got...
June 14, 2011 Abby is growing like a weed!  I've packed up nearly all of her 0-3 month clothing, except for a few rompers and dresses that kind of still fit her.  I was thankful that this past week she still fit into an adorable dress the Quayle family gave us and she was able to look gorgeous at graduation.  Now I'm scrambling to...
June 13, 2011 As a little girl I never went to daycare (or if I did, I don't recall!)  My mom worked at the elementary school and for the most part I remember my dad usually getting off work & being home by 3 and one of them would tote my brothers & me to our sports and other extra-curricular activities.  It was great and as I...
June 02, 2011 For the past week or so, Abby has been entertaining herself quite well on her play-mat.  We've positioned her so she can kick the arms and make the hanging toys jiggle....so Lynn got the idea of finding a toy that would make noise when we she kicks it.  Surprisingly we couldn't find too much selection, but we found...
June 01, 2011 I have to say I'm very glad to be a mom in the 21st century / Age of Technology. Here are some of the wonderful advantages I have noticed: ~Research -- I was able to research so much on-line! From deciding what Stroller I wanted to get to finding the cutest bedding, by, using the internet I was able to read not only industry reviews...
May 30, 2011   Well Abby is now a whopping 2 months old!  This past month Abby has definitely gotten into a routine, but not quite a schedule. She is going to bed anytime from 11:00 pm-1:30 am.  We are working on trying to get her to go to bed consistently at 11:00 pm and then hopefully we'll be able to move that time back...
May 12, 2011 Here is the slideshow our wonderful photographer Allie put together of Abby's birth.  We really debated about whether to have the birth photographed and I am so grateful that we did.  We also debated about whether to share this with the whole world (or at least the friends & family who keep up-to-date with our lives...
May 9, 2011 As I spend just about every waking minute caring for or thinking about Abby, I came to the realization.....30 years ago it was my mother staring at ME and having all these same thoughts. Wondering what was going through that tiny brain inside the baby she held. Trying to figure out what her child wanted or needed. Or what was making...
May 8, 2011 Little Abby is now 5 ½ weeks old & we are finally starting to get a hang of things and she has started sleeping through the night in the past week (anywhere from 6-8 hours!)  I’m not going to hold my breath that it will last for long, but I definitely am going to enjoy it while it lasts. Back to the title of this post. ...
