You guys: Christmas is a week away. Where have the last four months GONE??If you’re like me, you had the best of intentions back in September when you started planning out what Christmas was going to look like this year. And now, it’s a week before the holiday and the only person you’ve actually crossed off your list is your child(ren). Minus stocking stuffers.Sound accurate?

How Stillbirth Affects Your Marriage – and How to Make it a Priority in the Face of Tragedy

So, you guys, I’ve been trying to keep my posts lighter and happier because, after all, it’s Christmas. And most of the time, I’ve been able to slap on a smile and enjoy just being in the moment. Especially when I’m with Ricky. But you may have noticed that there was a lack in posting last week. And that’s partially because I’ve been swamped – but also partially because I can’t force my fingers to write about happy happy happy when in reality, this time of year is so very difficult for baby…See More

Swapping the Crib for a Toddler Bed

I promised some of you that I would eventually write about our crib to toddler bed experience. But I just couldn’t do it right away. I felt like it was going way too well, and I was totally going to jinx myself for saying it.But you guys: it’s going REALLY WELL.Rick and I decided last spring, when we were pregnant with Addison, that we weren’t going to actually go with a real toddler bed. Because I was a nanny for several years in college, I knew that a regular bed would serve us…See More

And The Gender Is…

So, friends, we are officially NOT having twins.On Monday, the hubs convinced me that, due to how much movement I was feeling, there was no WAY there could only be one baby in my belly.Needless to say, I was freaking out a little bit. To the point where I partially had myself convinced that there was a possibility that it was true.We had our first ‘big’ ultrasound – meaning, we went to the perinatologist – on Friday. And it is most definitely just one, very active baby – a boy! – taking over my…See More

Being Thankful After Losing…A Lot.

This morning, at 5:30, when my toddler woke up and needed his paci to finish that last hour of coveted sleep, a realization hit me.I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S DECEMBER.The older I get, the faster the months go by. About twelve months ago we were just finding out we were pregnant with Addison. Now we’re nearly halfway through a pregnancy with our third child. It’s both amazing and horrendous what can happen in a short twelve month span...Continue reading at …See More

12 Ways I’m Making Christmas Totally Magical for My Two Year Old

As Ricky gets older and really understands what “Christmas” means, I’ve found myself getting really into the Christmas spirit. Decorating, gift planning and most of all: SANTA PLANNING.This is really the first year that Ricky gets who Santa is. Although he did yell at me when I told him we were decorating for Jesus’s birthday to tell me that all the decorations were his.It’s the whole “mine” syndrome. He’s definitely my kid.Anyway – planning how to make Santa real and magical has been a super…See More

When Your Kid Gets Sick, You Can't Be Superwoman. Sorry Mamas.

Do you ever have those days that just leave you feeling like you’re ready to fall apart?Today is one of those days at my house. After a crazy few weeks of work and snow prep, a sick toddler, a sick mama and just running on super little sleep in general, I had a meltdown.Ok, not really a meltdown. But I just felt like such a failure.You see, when your child is sick, there is no room for anything else. When they’re awake, they need your full attention. When they sleep, you quickly jump in the…See More

Preparing for Snowmageddon: All the Winter Necessities When You Live in the Frigid Tundra

So my child didn’t sleep last night. Ear infections + snow seem to coincide with each other all too frequently. So at 4 AM, while I was still trying to convince my two year old to take yet another dose of Motrin to quell his fever and actually go back to sleep, I was intermittently chatting with the hubs while he was out on site and watching (more) snow fall from the sky.And thinking about all of the snow gear we had stocked up on for this winter.Winter = lots of gear in these parts. Let me…See More

"Hi Cortney! I enjoyed reading your post.  I know a little bit about snow because I went to school in Drums, PA for a brief period in the 90s.  It was the first time that I saw REAL snow. I now live in MD.  The whole city shuts down if…"
