Baby Girl is 2 Months + My Formula for Happiness!

DSCN2954done1

Baby Girl is 2 Months + My Formula for Happiness!   My baby girl just turned 2 months old. She is such a joy and blessing to our little family and I am so happy to be her Momma! As some of you might have read my little has not been putting on the weight that she is supposed to put on. She was born a whopping 9lbs 6.6 oz and now that she is 2 months old she weighs in at 10 lbs 5 oz. Not even a full pound has been gained. After several doctors appointments and such we have learned that there is nothing medically wrong with her. Her doctor feels that genetics are just kicking in and she is not meant to be a big baby. She is just growing at a slower rate and because of this we have been supplementing a bottle or two a day to help her get some extra calories and to ensure that she is eating enough. For her supplemented bottles I have turned to the #formulaforhappiness initiative by Gerber® with their all new Non-GMO Infant formula. My husband loves giving her a bottle before … [Read more...]

Little L is perfect and we would not change a thing about her!  Meeting Sister For the First Time The first two nights were tough with this little one. All she wanted to do was eat!

** I was sent a night light from KinderGlo for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.         My Thoughts on KinderGlo   My daughter is 8 years old and has recently been experiencing bad dreams. Her bad dreams are something I did not know how to deal with.

  Recess Music Gratitude Attitude CD Review!   I am constantly searching for ways to teach my children in a fun way. I feel they grasp things quicker when they are in a stress free environment and in good spirits. Homeschooling isn't easy but if I can remember to keep things fun then they will work hard and do their part. We tend to listen to music a lot during the day especially in between math and language to help "readjust" our attitudes, including mine! Music has an amazing effect on people and it works for us! Being that we listen to music and use it in our daily school day, I was excited to receive the Recess Music Gratitude Attitude CD to review! This is the newest cd and it comes out today 8/27/13!   When you listen to this cd you feel as if you have a cheering squad behind you singing sweetly to your children about things that you have told them countless times but yet doesn't seem to soak in. For example, there is a song that sings about when … [Read more...]
