My Milkshake Is Still Good
In case you were wondering, yes, I'm still breastfeeding Tiny Toes. Though I don't owe anyone an explanation, I want to explain myself because I think it's important for people to know that it's OK to breastfeed a toddler and there are many BENEFITS to cont...

Potty Time
Can you believe Tiny Toes is 1 year and 3 months old now?! That's 15 months in parent-speak. About a year ago I was starting this blog trying to put in words this crazy experience called parenting, and now here I am feeling like I have a pretty good grip on...

Love Your Neighbor
I went to bed with tears in my eyes, and I woke up with them too. Yesterday's school shooting in Roseburg, Oregon weighs heavy on my heart, as it does for many people in the United States. And like many people, I am asking questions: Why does this happen? H...

Road Trip
We're headed off to our first week-long road trip with Tiny Toes, and I am more than a little nervous. Let's just say she isn't at her best when she's strapped in the car seat for hours on end. Thankfully, she's improved a bit since our car ride from hell ....

Family Portrait
When Tiny Toes was about 2 weeks old we went to my mother-in-law's so she could snap a few photos with her new camera.  This photo pretty much sums up the experience. Haha! Good times!

Breastfeeding for the Win and Starting Solids
I accomplished my first parenting goal: I exclusively breastfed Tiny Toes for six whole months! If you've ever breastfed a baby, you know how challenging it can be. You're on demand 24/7, you deal with sore nipples and soaked t-shirts, you worry about your ...

The Car Ride From H-E-Double-Toothpicks
We have to drive about 2 hours each way to go to checkups for Tiny Toes's hemangioma every month. The first time we made this trip, she slept the whole way in her car seat.  My husband and I were thinking, "Wow! We should go on trips more often! We could go...

Lesson Learned: Don't Be Afraid to Ask Questions
One day when Tiny Toes woke up I noticed a bluish mark by her left eye. She had recently started rubbing her eyes when she was tired, so I thought she might have poked her eye. I decided to wait to see if it went away. Two days later, the mark was still the...
