Our Little Family Update

Family Car Wash

Little One ZZZ

The Prius- The Purple Monster-and The Dump Truck got washed and dried.

My little, teething cuddle monster.

Sitting in the parking lot(hence the lack of seat belt) after a night at the park- enjoying his first vanilla shake. 

Tuesday Zoo Days with our little family.

Snuggles and nap time in the Ergo.

The past couple of weeks have blown by.  I feel like I am in a daze-fog really- and can not for the life of me figure out why I am having such a hard time sitting down and writing at night.  Perhaps, it is the first time I am sitting down.  Perhaps, it is because unlike all of the antibiotics that have ran their course through my body- I can not get healthy.  I blame being perpetually tired.  So tired.  I mean if Em would take a bottle I could get a break.  But she doesn’t and I don’t.  

Whine. Whine. Whine.  

I am thankful that she latched.  Someday I will sit down and write about how incredibly different my experiences AND feelings with breastfeeding, pumping, and formula feeding are.  But until then?  I will go forth in my daze.

We are getting out of the house and going to activities every day of the week.  Living up this cooler weather before the lows are in the 90s and we are stuck inside for five months.  Winter passed us right on by this year.  Hoping that doesn’t mean that the summer will arrive early.  May is usually when triple digits hit.

On a heart health update: I am wearing an A-Fib heart monitor for the next 30 days to see if we can finally figure out what is so darn wrong with my ticker. Lucky that our insurance-after rejecting the claim- took back their decision.  Day One is over. Both kids are terrified by the beeping monitor.  Goodtimes.  Especially when putting Em down for her nap. Goodtimes.

Tomorrow I am hoping to take some five month photos of Em- that is the goal- but things come up-outside is to be explored-games played.

Thanks for hanging in there as I navigate this rough start to the new year!  I appreciate each and every one of you! 

Nuby Oral Care Set Review

Nuby Oral Care Set
Starting oral health care early on is incredibly important! When The Toddler got his first tooth over a year and a half ago we started brushing his teeth.  I would have loved to have the soft-gel like finger brush for him!
  Em loves brushing her first little tooth that has started to break through!

Helping ease a teething baby’s gums? Priceless my dears.  Absolutely priceless.

With The Toddler we let him brush his teeth while we sing the Raffi song-titled simply- Brush Your Teeth- and then we help make sure all of his pearly whites got equal attention.  I am 29 years young and have yet to have a cavity!  I am hoping that by starting young-just like my Mom- that we can help promote healthy teeth and gums for our little ones for the years to come!
