Forest at 21, 22 & 23 Weeks


I think every update on here I could say “Forest is changing dramatically!”, because honestly that’s how things are going from week to week around here. Forest spent a lot of January trying to perfect rolling over, rolling on occassion and getting stuck on his arm. Then one morning about two weeks ago as I […]

Forest at 19 & 20 Weeks


Forest has been really fun these last few weeks, not that he hasn’t been fun before. The difference is he’s changing daily! It was week 19 that we found out he had started rolling over from back to front at daycare. Chris found out one morning when he dropped him off and told me when […]

Forest at 17 & 18 Weeks


I feel like December was this deep, dark abyss that I was finally able to surface from in January only to be knocked back down once I took a breath. We were all pretty much sick for the entire December with Chris either relapsing or getting a different virus all together right after Christmas and […]

Forest at 14, 15, & 16 Weeks


The last three weeks have been rough here at the house. The three of us have been recuperating from being sick, officially diagnosed in Forest as RSV and an ear infection. I finally caved and went to the urgent care clinic and was told I had an ear infection and sinus infection. Chris healed easier […]

Forest at 12 & 13 Weeks


How are we already at 3 months old? Y’all???? *sniff, sniff* Forest’s growing up! There have been lots of changes in the last two weeks, he’s really shed that newborn baby phase and taken hold into the just-a-baby phase. Every day a new little light flickers in this brain, activating some other process that had […]

Giving Thanks For Breastfeeding


As is usual with my longer posts these days, they are always up later than I intended. So, here’s a Thanksgiving post a week late! There’s probably TMI for some of my readers, but that’s life and it’s my blog and I’ve gotta write what I’ve gotta write. Avert your eyes from this post if […]

The Forest Tree


Just like we planted a tree for our niece Zoe and one for our nephew Grayson, we planted one for Forest. Chris and I hemmed and hawed on what type of tree to plant…did we want something majestic? Something edible? Something flowering? We ended up going with a Chickasaw plum variety called ‘Gold’—of course we […]

Forest at 10 & 11 Weeks


I meant to get this out earlier this week, but here we are, days later. Oh well. Week 10 started off well, things were progressing in the sleep department. We were working our way up from 5-6 hours a night in the first stretch to a wonderful 7 hour stretch and then *bam* serious regression. […]

Forest at 8 & 9 Weeks


The big things for Forest during his eighth and ninth weeks of life were his first shots and me returning to work. I remember getting some shots as a small kid but over the years I’ve forgotten just how painful and scary they could have been. I must have blocked out some of that when […]
