And so it began...

First blog entry. So much to say.

It's hard to believe this blog, which I have contemplated many times over the past year, has finally (or is about to) come to fruition.
My inspiration...my beautiful baby girl Ava Grace had her first birthday party just this past Sunday. Again, hard to believe a year has passed since that life-changing day. It seems like only yesterday we were up all night...oh wait! that was yesterday....sigh.

So...she's not much of a sleeper. This we know. And yes, we've tried EVERYTHING. Formula before bed, soft toy, pacifiers in crib, lights on, lights off, salt lamps (I swear it) and the dreaded C.I.O. For you non-mommies...the heartless Cry It Out method. Nothing worked. Just sayin'

And now...even in a sleep-deprived haze...she turned one. 
She survived. 
And miraculously...we survived.

Will post birthday bash pics soon!


  1. i can't believe she's STILL not sleeping at 1! She's lucky she's cute or we would have to throw her out the window!LOL:)

  2. I love to go to a blogger's first post...fun way to find out perhaps what started a blog or to find out a little more about the blogger...
    So nice to meet you!

    Blessings & Aloha!
    If you get a chance to stop by, please do and also leave a comment so that I know you were there :o)
    Your three children are beautiful. I read your profile and you had written that you had your youngest at 39. I have a brother 11 years younger than me and then my mom (at age 45) had my sister 20 years younger than me...So my sister is about 9 months younger than our first daughter :o)


I love reading every last one. Thanks so much for stopping by our little blog. xo.
