Easy Bottle Feeding with Steribottle – A Giveaway!

As Lauren mentioned earlier today, moms with young babies will do well to plan ahead and simplify for the holidays. She mentioned some great ways in which she is going to make this Christmas a little more peaceful and a little easier on Mom. It’s important to keep in mind that some ways that are […]

Planning for a Holiday Baby

Today’s post is from Lauren Hill, the Mama in Mama’s Laundry Talk. We are so much on the same wavelength. I love reading what she writes. Today she shares how she’s preparing for a new baby at the holidays. I can so relate since two FishBabies were born in November. It’s a wonderful time to […]

Build a Diaper Basket

I’ve never really been one to use a changing table for changing baby’s diaper. Oh, we had a makeshift changing table for the first child or two.

It was just so much more comfortable to sit with them on the floor to take care of business.

Cute Feet!

My sister Jamie bought these for FishBaby when she was born. They are so stinking cute, I’m milking them for all they’re worth. She’s still sporting them – barely – at eight months of age. In case you’re like me and can’t tell what they are until you put them on the wrong feet, they […]

Managing Motherhood and Pregnancy

It’s hard to believe that exactly a year ago I took this photo of the FishChick. Then, I was in the throes on pregnancy nausea 24/7. Hmmm….good times. I don’t think my house was too clean in those early months. My “life as MOM” was limited to supplying food and clean underwear. Thankfully, those days […]
