the project life app : a detailed review

October 22, 2014

Y’all know how much I love Project Life if you’ve been reading for any length of time. Well, if you haven’t heard – there is now a Project Life app! It’s $2.99 for iPhone and iPad. At first I wasn’t sure that I would really use it. After all, I like to have a physical album. But in the end I couldn’t resist purchasing it, and today I want to give you the lowdown on what it’s actually like and ideas for using it. Let’s go screen by screen to see what it does!

liam at nine months

October 21, 2014

He: >Had a wet cough for weeks and weeks until it finally turned into a sinus infection. Then he did ten days of antibiotics, and on the tenth day he got a fever. Ear infection. So he’s still sick, poor boy, plus the diaper rash and diarrhea that goes along with antibiotics. >Weighs 25 pounds 7 ounces. That’s 100th percentile. >Usually cries and struggles when I put him in the car seat now. >Loves: a big basket of toys, being turned upside down, watching Meredith jump on the bed and her general silliness, funny gurgling noises, and being outside. >Says, “nuh nuh nuh” when I put him in nursing position and I wonder if he’s actually trying to talk. >Usually…

working mama files : nora from walking with nora

October 20, 2014

Working Mama Files is an interview series designed to support and encourage working moms along the path to having a fulfilling life. Today I am so happy to have Nora from the blog Walking With Nora here. Without question, Nora is one of my favorite people on the internet. There aren’t many people in this world who are as encouraging, loyal, and thoughtful as she is. This interview is especially interesting because Nora is a bonus mom! Keep reading to find out more about that; I think you’ll love her perspective. Welcome Nora! Who lives in your house?

I’m definitely going to revisit this as Liam grows and as the kids start sleeping in their own beds. >How to make your home warm and cozy when it’s gross outside.

this week

October 17, 2014

  Just a few pictures and words for you today. This has been a bit of an exhausting week. My coworker was sick so I’ve been running a busy clinic alone all week (and will be until next Wednesday). Meredith has been having one of her “spirited” weeks as well. I’ve been reading this book and it’s given me a lot of insight. I’ve been using some techniques on Meredith and I do think they help…but the whole process is draining. It will be good though. She and I are very different, but I love my spunky girl so much. We’ve been whole30-ing it up. Sort of. Trying our best. It’s a big deal and also not a big deal….
