A little about yourself...
Its hard to imagine that a little over five years ago, I was Miss California. I think at that moment, I thought that competing at Miss America was by far and away THE best thing that could ever happen in my life. Life took a strange turn of events over the past 3 years and I have learned A LOT to say the least. Just when I thought I was doomed to live as dog woman for the rest of my life. I know, I know, its supposed to be a cat woman but I have acquired two wonderful and strange hybrid dogs (a beagle-coon hound and a dobermain cockerspaniel) girls. And then it all changed. On a random Sunday in February, I met the man of my dreams at where else...the dog park. I always thought it would be Trader Joes...but no! Nothing could be better than meeting your future husband over poop bags. Totally serious! 2 years later, we live in the burbs with 3 lovely goons (dogs) and are completely busy being newlyweds. And thats where the story begins...

Yes, thats me yelling UNCLE and holding up the white truce flag. Why you might ask? Well, for awhile here its been fairly easy hanging with the little guy, running errands, going places as long as it was between the baby business hours of 8am-4pm. As of late, thats all changed and I think I have lost every shred of dignity that was lingering around me. How so? Everything was manageable prior to the dude learning how to crawl.That was only a mere month ago at the ripe age of 6.5 months. I…

Developmental Milestones…Love 'em or Hate 'em

So recently at one our 6-12 month parent classes, the facilitator passed out recommended developmental milestones for babies birth to 12 months. She asked all of us to check off where our babes were from birth to 7 months. Could they sit on their own, were they rolling over, were they babbling, blowing bubbles, putting things in their mouths, etc. As… Continue

Apples, Pears and Cinnamon…Oh My!

So its been awhile since I have been able to sit down and blog. Its been busy around here to say the least…other blog posts to come will detail our lives lately. So one of the fun things we have been doing now that the little senor is 6 months old is starting solids. Now you may be wondering how a person can get excited about eating solid foods but in our household it means that the little guy is one step closer to becoming a self sufficient little dude..ok, so that might be a slight… Continue

Taboo Topic #1: Who's down with PPD…I guess maybe me?

So I have gone back and forth as to write about this. I know a blog is "supposed" to be an online diary but some subjects still seem a little taboo, like this one…the dreaded post partum depression (ppd). ok, so it sorta makes me feel like a crazy person for even saying that I have been dealing with ppd. No, I am not a stage 5 Bay Bridge clinger but certainly past the "baby blues" stage. If I had to place…
