Wordless Wednesday – Feeding the ducks

Last Friday, my husband and I went to  Watson’s Mill with some of my mommy friends and their little ones so that we could have a little picnic and feed the ducks. Ashlyn had a blast! And in case you were wondering where Rowan was, you can just see the top of her head in our Belle Baby carrier; she’s so comfy in there that she slept through the whole trip! Read more […]

Losing the baby weight the second time around

I have to admit, I’m not totally sure how much weight I gained when I was pregnant with Rowan.  My midwives didn’t require me to weigh myself at every visit and although I did weigh myself the day before I went into labour (in case I wanted/needed drugs), I seem to have blocked out that number.  I’m pretty sure it was around the 35 lb mark though, which is quite similar to what I gained with Ashlyn.

The swing’s the thing

…and it’s making me crazy.  Ashlyn has rediscovered her love of the swings at the park and some days the ONLY thing she wants to do is sit and be pushed in the swing.  While it’s wonderful to see her sitting so happily, as far as I’m concerned it’s not a whole lot better than sitting inside watching TV.  Sit in the wagon to the park, sit in the swing and make Mommy (OK, usually it’s Daddy) do all the work.  Sweet deal, eh? Here she is in her wagon, ready to go to one of the 3 parks that Read more […]
