During the past year, I have been slightly obsessed with reading any helpful adoption material. Every time I go to Barnes and Noble I’ll come home with another book that doctors or adult adoptees have written specifically for adoptive parents.
The consensus is always the same. Even if you love your adoptive family more than words can express, every human wants to know from where they came.
One of my best friends in college was an adoptee. He had no … Keep Reading!!!
Hey everyone meet Angie!
1. Tell us about your personal breastfeeding experience with your children:
Wow, my experience…. I have been exclusively breastfeeding my daughter since the hour (?) she was born, we are at 14 months now. I remember not long after I delivered asking them, “Can I feed her now?”. It was SO important to me to nurse her. To be quite honest, I am not even sure WHY, I wasn’t, my siblings weren’t, I can’t even … Keep Reading!!!
Everyone Meet Janelle!
I always knew I would breastfeed my children. When I had my first child, at the age of twenty, I had no expectations about how breastfeeding was “supposed” to go, nor were there ever thoughts about not being able to nurse. My daughter’s birth was challenging; her latch was poor and no one offered me any help while at the hospital, despite noting on my chart
I was so excited to spend Christmas with my family!
I knew the boys would be excited to see their cousins
On Christmas Eve we attended a candelight service at our home church.
Then we went and had some Philly Cheesesteaks where Samuel got into Grandma’s lipstick!
My cousin Nicole brought alligator for any brave soul willing to try it…Brian never turns down a meal:
We made it home before … Keep Reading!!!
December 17th Samuel turned FIVE!
I can’t believe it!
We had a party at my parents’ house!
My grandma came because she never misses a hot party.
My niece came because Samuel LOVES her (She’s 5’11” and looks like a supermodel, I can’t really blame him)
and all of his boy cousins showed up.
Even my cousin Whitney and her husband Bryan showed up with their adorable daughter Declyn! Whitney knitted him an adorable hat for his birthday in his … Keep Reading!!!
I have a pair of underwear from the 7th grade. I still wear them regularly. They are half camouflage, half red, with multiple holes, and all the elastic is stretched out so I need to role them. On top of that, Brian complains that I not only have them in my possession, but wear them regularly.
I just can’t seem to get rid of the darn things…I’ve even packed them for the trip I’m currently on.… Keep Reading!!!
Target Nurse In!
It was brought to my attention that there is a nation-wide “nurse-in” December 28th 10:00AM at all Targets.
This is why it was organized:
Recently a mother was nursing her baby in a local Houston area Target. When she was asked to move to a private location, she refused, and was harassed and humiliated by three separate employees. She then called Target’s corporate customer service number and was told by a representative, and then her supervisor that … Keep Reading!!!
1. I am the mother to a happy, healthy, breastfeeding 4-year-old girl,
Arianna. We stayed home together for the first three years. She is nowattending a Montessori preschool. We exclusively breastfed for… I don’t know how long anymore! I know I tried introducing solids at six months and she wanted nothing to do with it. By ten months she loved
eating beans and blueberries. I am patiently (and not-so-patiently on
some days!) waiting for her to be ready … Keep Reading!!!
I think Santa is a lot of fun….so do my kids.
We all know he isn’t real.
I’ve come to learn there are different Santa familes:
Family 1: Hardcore Santa-ers. Go big or go home. I even think the adults may believe in him.
Family 2: The Anti-Santa-ers. The jolly rosie-cheeked man is about as accepted in this house as a burglar.
Family 3: Some may say lukewarm Santa-ers? Keeping with the secular tradition of Santa with the children fully … Keep Reading!!!
