It Takes a Village

No, we don’t live in that village, unfortunately. Otherwise, we’d invite you. Sorry!!! They say it takes a village to raise a child, but … what does that even mean?!?! NPR has a whole post about it, but it seems it’s hard to track back the origins. Either way, I never knew what it REALLY meant, until now that we’re going through it. From having family available for us during pregnancy, until now that Little Girl is 7 months old, there seems to be more people involved in the upbringing of a child than you realize. Whether you’re a single parent or have a million...

Since this all happened within the last month, we were really unsure what the setup would be like and what the noise and music level would be...

Halo SleepSack Swaddle Review

What is this swaddling business I thought to myself? We went over how to swaddle a baby on several of the parenting classes we took, but I don’t remember anybody emphasizing how USEFUL this would be. I thought it was something like changing a diaper. You just do it and it’s no big deal, just one of those things you learn to do and move on. I was greatly mistaken. After Little Girl was born, she was swaddled “professionally” by the nurses and it always looked so tidy and it would last until one of us undid it. Now...
