Bonding with baby

  I was reading an article online about breastfeeding, and the effect it has in regards to bonding with your baby.  And it sparked me to write this post.  I'll keep it short and sweet, otherwise I'll feel like I'm rambling on, and I just wanted to express my thought(s) on this topic. I was … Continue reading Bonding with baby

Losing my Identity

  When I became pregnant with our first child, I was a working woman, had a University degree, and a career at the Surrey School District here in BC.  After our son was born, I still considered myself to be in the work force, even though I was on maternity leave for the following year. … Continue reading Losing my Identity

Our newborn’s story: And our experience with the dangers of bilirubin

When we found out we were pregnant with our second child, we could not have been happier.  We were a little surprised that it happened so quick, but we were happy nonetheless.  At an early doctors appointment, I remember my maternity doctor telling me that as long as my first pregnancy was normal and without complications, … Continue reading Our newborn’s story: And our experience with the dangers of bilirubin

Swimming Lessons for a Baby

Here is a bit of background information before I blog about our experience with swimming lessons with our baby: When Linden was 3 months old, I started to realize how boring babies are, and was trying desperately to find something to do with a newborn.  He couldn't sit up on his own, he couldn't crawl … Continue reading Swimming Lessons for a Baby

This is a little late, but here is my blog post about our son's development at 10-months.

Baby’s Eating and Sleeping Schedule

Linden is now just over 8 months, and I thought I would write a post on his eating and sleeping schedule, since it seems to be a popular topic on my Instagram account.  At Linden's 5 month check up with our family doctor, we were told that he was showing signs (whatever those were) that … Continue reading Baby’s Eating and Sleeping Schedule

Baby Sign Language

  I was bored one night at home, watching over Linden do his tummy time, so I decided to Google "things to do with babies".  After scrolling through a bunch of useless things to do with babies, I came across Tiny Talking Hands, a sign language program for babies.  Ever since I was little, I … Continue reading Baby Sign Language

7 Month Update

March 14, 2016. Linden had his 7 month check up, although it was more like his 7.5 month check up.  Here is what we learned from his visit to the doctor... It is normal that Linden only poops once a week since he's been on solids once a day and breastfed the other times. He … Continue reading 7 Month Update
