Remy Bea // 3 Months

April 29, 2016

I’m quite possibly the worst mom ever. OK, OK. That’s quite dramatic. But I may be the worst bloggy mom ever. Because not only am I horrible at updating my blog, but I’m completely awful at taking pictures of Miss Remy Bea. I swear I took a picture of Ari every single day as a […]

Today is our 4th anniversary. I honestly can’t believe it’s been four years already — I’m certainly not saying that in jest. I literally mean, I cannot believe that Chad and I have been together for 8 years. I thought a couple of years together was a huge milestone, but now that we’ve been together […]

This week I’ll be doing lots and lots of laundry and Spring cleaning! We bought a new washer and dryer and chest freezer Friday night — which was the best and most exciting date night ever! Seriously. I am the happiest girl in the world with a new washer and dryer! Our washer broke about […]

Kid-Friendly Kitchen Crafts!

When I found out I was going to be a mom, I had visions of what Motherhood would be. You know, not just rainbows and butterflies. Or even meltdowns and panic attacks. Honestly, I had visions and dreams of coloring, painting, and other crafts! You know, typical kid stuff, right?? Wrong. Oh-so-wrong! It turns out boys […]

After a full week of [part-time] work last week, I was oh-so happy to see the weekend! Not because my week was hard (it was fun and exhausting, but not hard!), but because my Mama was coming to visit from Kentucky! Fortunately (and unfortunately) by the time Mimi arrived Friday night, Ari and Chad were […]

Little Miss Bea turned 2 months old last week — and we welcome this milestone with sleep regression and lots of teething. Yep. You read that right — teething. Already. In fact, Little Miss has been teething since she was 6 weeks old, but it wasn’t until 2 relatives and our pediatrician confirmed it that […]

Since Remy Bea was born (you know… TWO months ago), life has been a roller coaster, which I’ve talked about. Extensively. Like, extensively. And this here blog has suffered the wrath of long days and nights… By the time I have a few moments to myself to sit down at my computer, I just stare at […]

Remy Bea // One Month

February 24, 2016

Yesterday Miss Remy Bea turned one month old. It amazes me that time has flown by this quickly already. But also I keep thinking, “really? just one month??” Because it feels like the longest and shortest month of my entire life. There have been a lot of ups and downs. Here’s what our first month […]

I realized last night that from the sounds of my rants lately, it would appear that I hate everything and everyone and that nothing good or happy has been going on. Well, the new baby struggles are real and I cope by just putting it all out there and sharing my experiences. Buuuut there have […]

it still takes a village

February 18, 2016

I thought I could do it. I mean, I’ve dealt with a newborn before, right? Wrong. Oh, so wrong. Thankfully, I had Chad home for two weeks to help with the transition of our family of three to four. And then when he went back to work, my mom came up from Kentucky to stay […]
