This is one of the harder posts I’ve written. Not difficult to write but difficult to admit and put out there publicly… I have always struggled with me weight. I feel like most girls/women people struggle with that at some point. My weight has always fluctuated, even as a kid. I remember being 8 years … More Eat your salad…
I spend so much time and energy worrying about and over-thinking relationships. I make myself sick, not just metaphorically speaking but I make myself legitimately sick stressing out about it. I lose sleep over it. This is the stupidest thing in my life. I’m wasting time on people who don’t care. So starting today I … More There’s a storm a brewin’
Life update which will be pretty boring: Emerson had his 15 month checkup today. He is HUGE!! He weighs 30lbs 14oz and is 35 inches tall. Putting him in the 98th percentile for both and in the 86th combined. How is that even possible?!?!? He does so well. He is in the top of all … More Home is where…
Given all the disgusting talk about what is happening-and has been happening with planned parenthood, I thought I would finally share the story of my pregnancy. I met Emerson’s dad shortly after I moved to Seaside, Oregon. We worked for the same small company and we saw each other a lot, at different properties and … More The night everything changed
The more I hear about this massive earthquake that is going to hit the PNW the more freaked out I get. I’ve literally made myself sick because I am so worried. I won’t even leave Emerson to go to the bathroom. I am not prepared. We are not prepared. I am terrified to leave him. … More Nope…
I have a terrible habit of lashing out and hurting when I’m hurt. My weapon of choice are my words. It’s worse with the ones I care about the most. If you’ve never experienced it, I must not really like you (just kidding…kind of). Today I was not very kind. I knew saying something would … More Be careful with your words..
I loved “The Land Before Time” movies. At least the first few 😉 Even though Emerson is pretty young I thought I would see if he would enjoy them. Bad terrible idea. It is terrifying!! We’re usually an Arthur, Wild Kratts, Winnie the Pooh and ocassional Disney/Pixar watching kind of family. In the first few … More A tree star
Watching Emerson playing and my heart literally hurts because it is so full. I love him so much. I used to think it was silly when women would cry looking at their kids. Now I’m one of those women. I burst into tears when he smiles and bawl when he learns something new. I have … More Tantrums and Tigger
Some days, like today I miss my old life. I’m in bed, been here since 7:45pm, it’s now 11:00ish. Emerson isn’t dealing with the 92° weather very well. He hasn’t been eating much the past week and he’s teething. Since we co-sleep (keep your opinions of that to yourself please!!) when he goes to bed, … More I ain’t missin you at all.
When did my little (9lbs 7oz) baby become such a big boy! He’s already a toddler. He looks like he’s at least 3. He’s huge-not the whaley kind but huge. Like 3ft tall, climbing on all the furniture, laughing at his own silliness, telling me what he likes/doesn’t like, you know big kid stuff! It’s … More Hot! Hot!! Heat!!!
