Baby, Stuff I Love!, Theodore

Someone Take Away My Credit Card

When I found out I was pregnant I imaged dressing my baby up in cute little dresses with matching headbands.  I hoped for a girl simply because baby boys clothes are pretty much awful.  What is with everything having either a zoo animal (usually a monkey) or a fire truck? It only took a couple… Continue reading Someone Take Away My Credit Card


Week 9: Complete Exhaustion

For the last several years all I could think about was becoming a mom.  I made all these plans for what my child will and won't be like, how we will parent, etc.  But now that baby is here I'm finding it very difficult to live up to my own high expectations.  I was against… Continue reading Week 9: Complete Exhaustion

At the time it was the worst thing that ever happened to me.  I couldn't fathom wanting a… Continue reading Gone but not Forgotten
