Clearing

It would appear that we are once again back to our normal - still exhausting, still often treading water, but able to breathe and even enjoy the water occasionally. Thank 7lb 5 oz baby Jesus! Everyone is now (mostly) healthy! HFM has been vanquished! I have stopped hacking! L did manage to tweak her back... Continue Reading →

The Pits

  The last few weeks have been only slightly short of miserable. Like, we are IN IT, y’all. The biggest contributing factor is that EVERYONE has been sick, with each of us at different places on the sickness to wellness spectrum at different points in time, but none of us actually achieving actual non-sick status...

9 months

First of course . . . Angus is NINE MONTHS OLD! (weird. Wasn’t Ansel just born?) At his 9 month appointment, he weighed in at 17lbs 9oz, putting him in the 10th percentile. Not too shabby, considering he was only in the 2nd at his 6 month appointment, and before that he wasn’t even on... Continue Reading →

The latest in the sleep (no sleep) saga: Angus does indeed have both a lip and tongue tie. The pediatric dentist revised the lip tie on Tuesday but determined that the lip tie wasn't impacting his nursing ('he's doing what he's supposed to with it') and because of his age, didn't want to revise.

Light at the edge

  First, a few updates:   A pre-school mom friend recommended a sleep consultant to us and after hearing from others how helpful this has been, we decided to at least call for the free 15 minute consultation. The lady was *amazing* and gave us a few things to look into medically before we attempt... Continue Reading →

Everything is a little bit harder because 3 out of 4 of us aren’t getting enough sleep regularly, and the fourth occasionally joins us when he’s feeling rowdy. Last night, for example, I...

I’ve been wanting to steal some time to update about Denver + Ansel fully embracing threenagerhood + Angus and his magic accomplishments but . . .you know, blah blah blah, busy. Also, I hate leaving a mopey blog post up because it feels like it just sort of sits and festers, even though I think... Continue Reading →

Things are Hard

This post has taken like two weeks to write but I’m too fucking tired to start over so bear with the edits and updates. I've had a series of difficult things happen, aside from operating at a half tank due to the shift parenting situation, which will last only one more week. (it’s over now,... Continue Reading →

The Quotideien

Ugh. I started writing almost two weeks ago and never got around to finishing because life feels like its mostly survival mode right now. As it happens, I have my full lunch break available to me before I need to leave to go give a training, and I am going to spend it updating because... Continue Reading →
