Lily has started to gag herself and it’s not cool.

Babies never cease to amaze me. Every time I think I’ve seen the strangest thing, they start something new. Lily is now sticking her hands down her throat and gagging herself.

Where did my baby girl get her attitude?

I’m not sure where Lily picked up her attitude, but she’s started to get fussy for no reason. Every morning we get up, get dressed, have a bottle and then I put her on the floor to play. She sits in a little fenced in area with plenty of room and toys and hasn’t had […]

What’s a parent to do when WE get sick?

It’s inevitable, someday mom and dad will come down with a cold and then what? Actually this happened last week. First Christi got something, and then passed it to me. We were worried about passing it to Lily, but there isn’t much a parent can do; is there? Yes, we washed our hands often and […]

Can babies have nightmares?
