Almost 11 Months

August 5, 2013

What’s new with my lil’ man? Lots of things! Primarily….walking-ish, not napping and lots of kisses. Shoulder kiss action: Mobility. M is up, down and all around these days. He can practically run when pushing the ottoman around the basement and loves to stand and cruise around. He isn’t standing or walking on his own […]

Reading List Erased

June 25, 2013

I was going through my Kindle app the other day (long time, no see!) and saw that I still had lots of books on baby sleep and breastfeeding. And then I realized I would never read them. How amazing that we are on the other side – success! So I deleted them with joy. Several […]

7 Months

May 2, 2013

We are almost to 8 months and I feel like time is just slipping through my fingers!! I look back at photos of Mazen when he was tiny (not that he was ever tinytiny!) and I really struggle to remember those days. We have hit the stage where Mazen is learning new things every single […]

This is a post that I really debated writing. Writing about crying is never going to be accepted by all. Ultimately I decided to share because I find reading blog accounts of baby events before I attempt them myself to be SO helpful. I hope this post is helpful for some of you. If you […]

14 Weeks: Physical Changes

March 15, 2012

A few changes I’ve noticed this week: 1) I think my blood volume is definitely increasing. I can feel my heartbeat in all kinds of strange places – in my back, in my head, in my uterus, in my toes – at random times. And not to be totally gross, but I’ve heard that the […]

12 Weeks: Meds + Beds

March 8, 2012

I’ve started to wean myself off my meds a bit since I’ve been feeling better. I accidentally forgot two lunch doses of my B6 and Unisom and felt OK, so one day I skipped them altogether. I did feel a bit more nausea that day, so I’m sticking with a breakfast dose for another week […]
