I have to say, Lil Man seems to have settled into his new sleeping arrangements and no pacifier. We still have our struggles, but I think he enjoys the new found freedom of reading a book or playing before nap. Today, I heard him in his room in the rocker 'reading' books. When I went to check on him, he was in his bed almost asleep.

So far night time has been ok also. Tonight Hubby is working late, and I will be putting him down on my own. We'll see if this makes a difference.

An another note, I'm seeing improvements with Kindermusik. He will now go up (with some encouragement) to get the bells or shakers on his own. He is also about helping to 'clean up' and will return items to their baskets. And for the first time today, he got on the 'story blanket'. Ok, so it was only one knee on the blanket and the rest of him was on me, but that's still progress. It was a tough go in the beginning, but he seems to be enjoying it now. Last week he even pointed for me to take off his shoes, since we take off our shoes when we go into class.

I still worry about his lack of speech. But I try to remind myself that each week we are usually seeing progress. And progress is progress even if it is painfully slow.

It's hard to believe that my Lil Man will be 2 in less than two weeks.


  1. Love reading your blog, so nice to hear from other moms! I am a stay-at-home mom with a 7 month old so I love to hear others stories.

    1. Thank you so much for reading! I like to read other's stories too. It helps to know that I'm not alone in this journey of being a stay-at-home mom :)

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss

Little Buffalo State Park

I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days

Ecosak Nylon Nut Bag Review

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature. Well, can you believe that I am trying out a nut bag to make my own almond milk? (I'll pause a moment so that you can let the shock wear off!) I can honestly say that never in my life did I intend on making my own almond milk. But as you know, we are making some changes to our diet. So I decided I would give it a try.  And with the Ecosak I also received some recipes which really helped since I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I asked Lil Man if he wanted to help me, and he was more than thrilled. Apparently making almond milk was an exciting and fun thing for him. First things first was to wash the Ecosak (easy to do) and soak the nuts. Yep, I put some raw almonds in a bowl, covered them with water and let them soak 6-8 hours or so. After they had been soaked, I
