Our Journey to Better Naps

Our Journey to Better Naps

I want to start off with saying I know that every baby is different and what works for one may not work for another. I also know that I am by no means a baby professional or baby whisperer. But I am a mom who loves to see what works for other moms and babies. My purpose in writing this post is to share what has worked for us and I hope that maybe someone else will find it helpful….

I realized during a conversation recently that unless you’ve experienced infertility, you really can’t understand it. And that’s no one’s fault. This post is by no means meant to make anyone feel bad or to make anyone feel sorry for me. The purpose of this post is just to share what I lost to infertility.

A Peek into the Baby’s Room

A Peek into the Baby’s Room

Today I thought I’d share the baby’s room. We’ve spent quite a bit of time working on this room over the summer. I’m sure we will continue adding to the room, but we’ve got all the big things done. Let’s start with what the room looked liked when we bought the house, what it looked like after we painted it when we bought it, and what it looks like with it’s fresh paint job. When we moved in two walls…
