Who I Follow

Evelyn Jean: 7 months old

Hey, tumblr friends! Miss all of you and keep up to date as much as I can with everyone’s blogs. Turns out, this parenthood thing gets a little harder as the baby gets more aware, awake and mobile. 

I’m still blogging, just over at Wordpress these days. 

For those of you who don’t wanna bother clicking over to WP, I’ll post a couple pics of Evelyn in the next post. (Tumblr won’t let me put them here, for some reason).

Once you get this, say 5 facts about yourself and then pass it on to 10 of your favorite followers :)

1 - I am the oldest of 3 girls

2 - I crack my knuckles, toes and neck

3 - When I was a little girl, I’d pray at night that I would wake up and be a boy, so the crushes I had on my friends would be ‘normal’ and okay. 

4 - I’ve had the same best friend for 15 years. She was my partner for 7 of those. 

5 - I’ve had my ears pierced for 21 years, and haven’t worn any in over a decade. The holes still haven’t grown in.

You have a veryyy cute baby xx

Evelyn and I both thank you! 

The Buffalo, NY bus station is one of the most depressing places in North America. And Evelyn and I have been stuck here for hours, with no bus in sight. I hate it here - even watching crackheads act crazy has gotten old.

Although you've fully migrated I will still be reading up on your and Evie's adventures in life <3 Have an amazing rest of your time with your family!!

Wonderful! Thank you, Katie! I will, of course, always follow your journey, too! 

My girl loves her #bathinthesink

Hey, tumblr friends! 

I have pretty much fully migrated to Wordpress. I know that means I’ve lost some of your eyes as readers, and that makes me sad! 

BUT for those of you who are either on WP yourselves or have a blog reader, you can find me here: 

Solo Mama

Most doctors don’t even know how to use a fax machine, and yet we trust them wholeheartedly to give us the absolute best advice regarding our children 100% of the time.

Am I the only one that sees the flaw in that?

That’s stupid logic. Because doctors generally don’t get tested or taught the virtues and uses of a fax machine.

Evie has been laughing for a while now. Little chuckles and giggles that make my mama heart swoon.

Tonight was different. Tonight she was giving those deep, endless baby belly laughs. The ones that make tears well in your eyes as you giggle along with them. All it took was for me to keep saying, “You silly, silly goose,” and she kept cracking up.

Oh, I longed for someone else to be there with me and capture it on film. Or just take it in with me and marvel over how delicious she is. The moment I got my camera out was the moment it was over. I may get it on film next time. Even if I don’t my heart aches a little for someone else to love her (almost) as much as I do, and be here for these little gifts.

Some day.
