We Got the Truck!

We Got the Truck!

Before doing anything in life, you should make sure you do some research before going through with something. Even if it’s a little amount of research, like lets say you’re strictly vegetarian (like Matty was for 5 years) and you’re going out to dinner with friends; […]

First Time Making Baby Food

First Time Making Baby Food

The idea of making baby food for my son wasn’t a new fantasy after having Mason. The idea was spawned before we were even pregnant. I knew that it would probably save some money, would be a fun activity for me and Mase, and I […]

The Truth (and Tricks) of Sleep Training

The Truth (and Tricks) of Sleep Training

At the beginning of February, from the advice of a friend, I began my journey with sleep training. And really, truthfully, it’s a journey. It’s a continual struggle as well as one of the best things that I have done so far as a mother. […]

Baby Bonnet

Baby Bonnet

I ordered a bonnet for Mason on Amazon not long ago, and I had been very impatient waiting for it. Matty and I both work on Saturday mornings, which is always hard. He stays with his grandma during those hours. While I was at work […]

Busy Morning

Today’s posts should really begin with my night last night… it was rough. Although, I think I had set myself up for failure by getting in my pajamas and taking my contacts out before Mason was ready for bed himself.  Once my contacts are off, […]

Another Step Forward

Talked to a bank! This morning, after we were all showered and got enough rest, we packed Mason up and headed to our bank to talk about loans! Now, I have never taken out a loan for anything in my life, and that includes for […]

And it’s the weekend

It seems the weeks fly by sometimes. We hit another milestone this week – Mason turned four months old! We have his check up scheduled next week, and we are excited to see how much he’s grown and ask our pediatrician all of the questions […]

Day at the Aquarium

We live in Chattanooga, but we rarely make it downtown to enjoy all Chattanooga-y things. Especially since after having Mason, the temptation to stay at home and just order food  is far stronger. On the flip side, we also have a strong desire to have […]
