Our First Summer BBQ As A Family

Barbeque, beers, wiffleball and tossing around the pig skin. Many of my college friends have gotten together for several years to enjoy one another’s company at Colt State Park – a gorgeous *free* state park by the bay. But this year, it was a little different. Or, should I say, a tiny different. This year, we brought a baby.

Hair's Worst Nightmare – A 4 Month Old Baby

My four month old tiny baby has a pincer-like grasp that would put cranky Maine lobsters to shame. Remember those toys we played with as kids – the Chinese finger traps?

My Battle With Breastfeeding

Today marks the last day in World Breastfeeding Week. The theme this year is about supporting mothers on their journey of breastfeeding their babies. I have decided to tell a little of my breastfeeding story, and how support from others helped me become a more confident mother. If I was born 100 years ago, I would have been a wet nurse. A wet nurse is a woman who breastfeeds another person’s child. They were (and sometimes still are) employed when…
