So, we’ve been sick for the past coupla days, which is part of the reason I haven’t been so great about posting! I’m still going to aim for a post-packed November, because that’s how I roll …
Here’s a size comparison, for fun!
Sam at two days old:
Sam at one week old:
Sam at two weeks old:
Sam at three weeks old:
Sam at four weeks old:
Sam at five weeks old:
Sam at six weeks old:
Sam at seven weeks old:
It’s safe to say that it seems he’s been going through one long growth spurt. Next size comparison starting at eight weeks! Can’t believe it’s been this long already …

By 3PM today, I'd only eaten a sandwich and had a Coke Zero (chill, I only have one a day,...

- Some of Our Favorites: 14 Month Edition
When I'm talking about our favorites, I mean Sam's and Mom and Dad's favorites.
1. Favorite skin remedy: CJ's BUTTer. This has been a staple of ours since Sam's birth. I got the recommendation for this as a diaper cream, since we started out with cloth diapers. Yes, this is sold as a diaper rash cream....
- One Year
Today you are one year old. That means that exactly one year ago, I was holding you for the first time, watching you sleep for the first time, nursing you for the first time, and kissing your sweet baby hair on the top of your sweet head for the very first time. Your daddy...
- Why must we try to raise other people’s kids … on the internet?
I may or may not have mentioned my mild internet addiction, which worsened when I had Sam glued to my boob for the first four months or so of his life. During that time, I was at home most all of the time. Also, it was winter. Also, the whatnot with the PPD. The internet,...

- More Plath/Thanks to Sarah
A friend of mine sent me this poem of Plath's in response to my post of "Morning Song."
I think this is by far the most accurate description of active labor that I've ever seen:
I talk to myself, myself only, set apart--
Swabbed and lurid with disinfectants, sacrificial.
Waiting lies heavy on my lids. It lies like...
- Postpartum Life at 14 Weeks
The day has finally come where Sam is entertained by his Jumperoo! It's a good day, and I predict more blog posts. As for Sam, he is touching things curiously, staring at his hand, drooling enormously, and chewing on his fingers most enthusiastically.
As for me, I wanted to give you guys a postpartum update about...
- The Best Breastfeeding Supplies
You need gear to breastfeed. I mean you really don't ... the boob is the thing ... but the accessories make it easier to get through the day (at first) and establish a great breastfeeding relationship with your baby. If you are a pumping mom, or if you want to stay dry while breastfeeding, or...
- To Circumcise or Not So Much?
I have strong views and opinions. I guess you probably know that about me by now if you've been reading this blog at all. One of my strongest views is that a parent should not be criticized for his or her decisions unless those decisions involve child abuse. That said, a recent comment on my...
- Having a Satisfying Natural Birth at a Hospital
I wrote about this subject before (see the posts here and here), but I haven't addressed it after Sam's birth. I think it's important to address since many natural birth lovin' ladies are of the impression that one cannot have a successful birth at a hospital -- or that a hospital will push you to...
- How did October pass us by?
Sam is now in size two disposable diapers (disposables are used infrequently around here, but he's dealing with a yeasty diaper rash due to my thrush, and that Lotrimin will eff up my nice cloth diapers in no time flat!), and he's solidly in 3-6 month clothes. He's also making some pretty amazing eye contact,...
