Who is this baby?

Right now, I don’t know my kid. In the last two weeks, her normal schedule, routine, and preferences have done complete 180′s. She refuses to take more than 3-4 bites of solid foods before she starts opening her mouth and letting the food just roll off her tongue. She is currently working on her second [...]

No Social Anxiety for Moms

I’m not a social person, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the company of others. I just much prefer to be alone, with my things, in my house, and my family. I have always had a hard time making friends, and it’s entirely my fault; I’m much too picky/shy/withdrawn. But, once a baby morphs [...]


The perfect age

And even after the birthing process is over, while we hold them in our arms, we still don’t truly know [...]


Mother’s Intuition is Real

I knew something was… maybe not wrong, but at least different about Sydney in the very beginning, around two months. Yes, babies have weak necks, but that still wasn’t an explanation for why her head was “tilted” in every picture we took, and to the same side, no less. But, after voicing my opinion, even [...]
