My oldest absolutely loves arts and crafts. For his third birthday party, I wanted to do an Art themed birthday party!
Sleep hit the fan around 3.5 months old, and Arthur wasn't happy. He would sleep for 40 minutes and then wake up for 40 minutes and repeat that gruelsome process all day long.
The month of waiting for Arthur's pediatric lensectomy due to PFV/PHPV and a dense cataract took me back to late-pregnancy, pacing around.
We noticed almost immediately that one of his eyes seemed a little swollen shut. He would open one eye and not the other.
Welcoming Arthur into the world was an remarkable experience in itself. What was even crazier was the month following his birth...
The doctors and nurses were calling it a dream-delivery, from how fast and easy everything went. I found it a little too close for comfort...
There's no way they'd turn away a lady past her due date. This birth wasn't a scary birth, but it was our scariest birth experience.
One of the best parts of living in a small town has got to be the ease to get involved in everything. I'm a service-driven kind of gal, it's totally my love language. Getting involved and helping our community is so important to me as a hobby, but also as a mom trying to raise my babies into the young men I hope that they become!
My youngest toddler is the epitome of "give a kid a toy and they play with the box".
Like, seriously. He has hardly any actual toys that he continually enjoys playing with. His favorite "toys" are remotes, phones, light switches, door knobs, car keys, and his sound machine.
Just trying to help encourage other moms with ideas, showing you that they are simple, easy, and totally manageable to work on if you might have a toddler with a speech delay, sensory processing disorder, or maybe just want to work on speech early!
