Product Review: Shea Moisture | Raw Shea Butter Baby Oil Rub.

My husband and I both have very sensitive skin. As a child, I couldn’t even use ivory soap, without breaking out in a rash. I can recall soaking in an oatmeal bath, for skin related issues regularly, up until puberty. When it comes to my 10 month old son Jack, I am very careful about…

My post baby body.

Jack will be 10 months old in a few days, and I haven’t really done anything about my post pregnancy body. I realize that I only made it to my 28th week of pregnancy, and shouldn’t have gained that much weight, but I did. As of this moment I am approximately 5 feet 6 inches…

Teething baby going crazy (part two)

Oh. My. God. Jack is cutting two more teeth! These two are right next to the first two, on the bottom. Poor baby is very restless at night, and completely unappeasable most of the day. Despite Jacks extreme discomfort, he still manages to laugh and play a little during the day. He’s also ready to…

Jacks first NICU follow up

Jack had his first NICU follow up appointment today. I knew that they would be evaluating him based onΒ  his adjusted age of six months, and I knew that he would knock their socks off. Which he did! They were very impressed. They had no concerns. He’s in the 98th percentile on everything. He didn’t…

Weekend Update/Milestone Update

Jack has been in a much better mood the last few days. He is enjoying eating lots of solid meals, and taking naps in his crib during the day. On Friday night Jack’s Auntie Kim and Cousin Ryan (7 years old) came for a visit. Which meant Jack had himself a play mate until they…
