My little guy and I are at our six-month breastfeeding mark. This is a goal I am really happy about hitting, especially considering I didn’t nurse my first son. I tried every trick in the book, but in the end he ended up being formula fed which is *okay. (*Yes, yes fed is best!) However, with my working knowledge on the cost of formula, I was determined to make it work. Here are some of my thoughts throughout this journey...  Month One Oh wow! This little baby latched immediately! We’re going to do this! ::one day later:: okay. We’re not going to do this. Why does this hurt so bad? Is this much lanolin healthy for the baby? I need something...
My husband hurriedly snapped the obligatory pictures of me in the wheelchair holding our newborn as we were wheeled out of the hospital. It was freezing, and we were eager to get into the warm van. The van - a vehicle I never expected I'd need, much less want - that was now full of car seats of varying stages. The seats of our big boys in the back, our toddler and newborn girls in the middle, and Mommy and Daddy in the front. Our hearts and van were full, and honestly, the logistics of transportation are one of the primary reasons that we have to be done. Because if left to our feelings, my husband and I would never...

We’re a family that cloth diapers. We’ve had this plan before Maverick was born, and I remember having friends and family members chuckle at the idea of us doing it. “You won’t have time”, “It’s so expensive to cloth diaper” were two of the things I heard the most. Surprisingly, I don’t find it very time consuming. I mean you’re going to change a diaper anyway so why can’t it be a cloth? I’m not going to lie, though, the idea at first made me nervous, I mean spraying poop in the toilet kinda made me cringe ... especially newborn / beginning stages of solids poop. But I will try anything to save money. I did some research and...
Our home has currently been taken over by Maverick’s molars. Our once happy go-lucky babe is now in so much pain from his gums bleeding that all he wants to do is cry, be held, and watch either Mickey or Moana. Some seasons in toddlers’ lives are so much fun and amazing that you just don’t want them to end. This season? This is not one of those. It’s also one that I feel like drags on forever ... anyone else feel that way? Between getting sick and teething, Mav has had probably 3 full days of happiness in the last  month. We’ve tried everything and anything that may help ease the pain and would comfort him, and luckily some...
