As a stay at home mom I try my darnedest to make a good meal for my family at least 4-5 times out of the week. Back in the day when we didn’t have

Yoyo over Yogurt

We love us some yogurt around these parts! Yogurt was one of baby boy’s first new foods after the basic fruits and veggies were introduced. I waited until around 8 months or so to introduce it because it has dairy in it, and I wasn’t sure about an allergic reaction. Baby boy had some spit

Steps to Weaning a Breast Fed Baby

how to wean from breast feeding

My son has been breast fed from day 1. I have loved it! BUT….when he started getting to be about 11-12 months it became more of a chore than a bonding time. The morning and night nursings were still wonderful, but the lunch and dinner ones were a bit much. He was so squirmy and

Homemade Baby Food Meals

mixing food for baby meal

So what is up with babies growing up?? They do it soooo fast that is hard to keep up with all the memories that I am supposed to be remembering! My little guy will be 11 months old tomorrow (really??), and he is a crawling, exploring machine.

When preparing to go to a restaurant with my baby boy, or frankly, ANYWHERE with my baby boy (remember my trip to the salon?), I have a mental checklist that I go through to make sure I have the essential items to keep him occupied. Our diaper bag usually is full of these sanity saving
