Reflections in a mirrored star

It is 2 days before Yule. I haven't written much on here about my personal goings ons. Probablly because I don't think it is of much interest to people if I do. Or maybe it is. But, I can guarantee you it has been filled with a lot of interesting tidbits here and there. A rollercoaster set on what seems to be downhill, for now.

Most of it is financial and some of it is just me trying to deal with my own inner demons and how I feel about life. Don't worry, it isn't morbid. Just reflections on my marriage, my children, my past, my present, my future.

Baroque Romance

A friend posted a link to another wonderful blog on my facebook page today and it inspired me to post more pictures of my decorating desires. Here is a montage of my desired bedroom look.  Unfortunately with my budget, I don't see it happening anytime soon. A girl can dream though, right?

The Thanks in Thanksgiving

Yes, I will follow suit and write what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving. I say this on a regular basis to myself but now is a good time to let it all out. I think it is good to have perspective in life and being grateful for the blessings in your life is a good way to start.

I am thankful first and foremost for my husband. He has shown me what true love and sacrifice really mean. He gave me 2 beautiful children that have become the base of my existence. With out these 3 people, I would be nothing.

weened from the pump

After 5 months of exclusively pumping breastmilk for my son, i have finally weened off of it. Dacian is now exclusively breastfed and is doing great. I was having a hard time keeping my very rigid pumping schedule and it hurt my supply. I am back up and have been able to comfortably nurse in public and at Hueco Tanks State Park during a family photoshoot.

I worked diligently to make sure i provide my son with breastmilk. With a very high palate he was not able to latch without hurting me for 3 months. Then we had issues with biting and pulling. Now we have a perfect nursing relationship. Without my breast pump we would not be here today. I hope to inspire more moms to try and overcome their latch issues and develope a magical nursing relationship.

The World According to Dacian

This is a fun new blog. It is simply the daily musings of a baby boy growing up and discovering the world around him. Would you mind following and sharing with others?

Uses for Olive Oil

Here is a great listing of 20 uses for Olive Oil. I know it is essential in our house for our hair, skin and earaches. I do hear wonderful things about coconut oil too. I will try that out soon and let you know how it goes.

3 months!

So more like 3 months a few days but who's counting right? That's right. D is 3 months old now. Where has the time gone? I think the cookie monster ate it. You didn't know that the cookie monster eats time too? Oh he LOVES that shit. I catch him stealing it all the time. He does it in a way that is kind of like those floaty ghoul things in Harry Potter (ok nerds. Set to attack me now for not knowing what those things are) that steal your breath. Yep. Just like that. Cookie monster is evil I tell you. Pure unadulterated evil.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
