Relief

On Wednesday night, I cried.  Yep.  I laid in my husbands arms and cried my little heart out.  It felt great.  Well, afterwards, at least.  He had just finished telling me how he felt that I was an awesome mother, and a great wife, and how much he appreciates the work I put in to…

Baby Sleep, Again

Wow.  Izzy has actually been sleeping well this week.  I KNOW, I almost can’t believe it myself!  After weeks of waking every 1.5-2 hours to play, and talk, and laugh, she has been waking about once a night. Hallelujah.  We revisited the Ferber method, because all of the cosleeping, nursing down, and “No Cry Sleep…

Shoes, Again

Well, now that we have this whole walking thing pretty much in the bag, I decided that Izzy needed shoes, and that she must be taken to a fancy shoe store for them!   Then the cheapo in me kicked in, and decided that she wouldn’t be doing any 5ks anytime soon, something a little more…

Finding Your Style

This is like my third time trying to write this post, because wordpress keeps eating it. Third time should be the charm, right? Anyway, how did you go about finding your personal style?  I have a pretty good idea of what looks good and what doesn’t, but I seem to have the hardest time figuring…

Seeing the Family

We went home today, to Eastern Arkansas, to see our families today.  Izzy’s grandparents and cousins had a blast.  My 9 year old nephews were manning the camera, so non-blurry pictures were limited, but I have a couple to share, that I actually took myself, except for two, lol.

Being Ms. Jones: Week 37

This week, Izzy: Still has no teeth Is walking anyway, despite my insistence that she can’t, until she has teeth Is getting mad when you take away something she shouldn’t have. She crawls away, fussing. Comes back and smiles at you 5 seconds later, when she’s done being mad. Is a ball of frantic energy.…

Sabotage!

So, there’s a gym, a 24 Hour Fitness literally RIGHT around the corner from where I live.  About a 1 minute long walk.  This is good, right? Well, guess what just opened up right next to it?  Yep! A DONUT shop!  A Shipley’s donut shop.  I don’t know if you have Shipleys were you live,…

Parenting “Experts”

Do the people that we hail as the parenting “experts” these days have adult children?  If so, I wonder what kind of people they are?  A lot of us follow these gurus like their word is gospel, but I’ve begun to wonder if we’re really raising our children to be the people that we want…

Being Ms. Jones: Week 36

So, big things this week for the little one!  After doing a lot of reading about the benefits of baby sign language, we will be starting with Izzy this week.  Slowly, of course, because I myself have to learn and remember to do the signs with her, so that she can learn, and eventually start doing…
