How to make teething popsicles for your little one

Teething Popsicles

Teething Popsicles

Babies seem to start teething at such an early age. Every child starts teething at a different age but eventually they all do. Baby A started teething at two months old. Being a first-time mom I was not expecting that. We did not know what to do to help soothe him. I just wanted to make him feel better. We would rub his gums, tried teething gels, a wet rag put in the freezer for him to gum, and teething rings.  Continue Reading →

Arts and Crafts: Finger painting fun

Arts and crafts

I love doing arts and crafts with my husband and son. We just have such a wonderful time. This week we decided to do some finger painting. It is something I knew my son would love doing and my husband would love helping him. I had done finger painting with him since he could sit up on his own. It is just something I try to encourage as it is a way he can express himself as he gets older. Plus, it is very fun to do and makes great gifts for family.  Continue Reading →

Making memories at the Park, Today!!

Park advnetures

Park adventures

Taking my son to the park today was a blast. He had so much fun, even made a little friend. His head was turning this way and that way. We were walking all over the place trying to explore. He even went down the slide like a big boy. Of course, with me holding on to him after all, he still my baby boy. The time we spent the longest on would be the swing. I was so proud of him. He starts swinging on his own leaning forward and backwards to keep going. Such a smart little man I have. Taking the time out of my day to just go spend time at the park that was the greatest part.  Continue Reading →

How to baby proof your home

Baby Proofing

Baby Proofing

It is time to baby proof

Once your baby starts moving around more it is time to baby proof. They get into absolutely everything they are not supposed to. My son has literally broken my husband’s Xbox 360, four phone chargers, and a lamp light bulb. He is always on the go. Ever since he started scooting around. Then started pulling himself up on to stuff, and now he is walking.

Teach your child to get back up and try again

    Learning to walk

My son is now trying to walk so falls a lot. I honestly try not to react no matter how much I want to. The more I react the more my son will. If I don’t react he will roll over and try again. The moment I do the water works start flowing.

Being a parent its hard to see your child stumble. You want to make things easier for them and help them. Eventually we have to let go whether it’s letting their hands go to take steps or letting them do things on their own. It is the only way they will learn. Build the independence they are going to need as they get older.

As parents we don’t want to let go and see our child grow up. We want to keep them little as long as possible. No matter how much we want them to stay little it is just not realistic. They have to grow up eventually and move out on their own. Make their own memories and experiences.

Lessons

Some of those experiences we would rather them not have but it is part of life. I hate seeing my little 7 month old fall but I know this is something he has to do. Least if he learns to fall he also learns to get back up and try again. He may not get it the second time but eventually he will. That is a life lesson all children must learn to thrive in life. Being a parents means being their teacher as well after all the first lessons are taught at home.

My job as a parent is to make sure he gets back up and tries again. Make sure he not only survives in the world but thrive. It is never to early for a child to learn. Just remember no matter how old they get they will always be your baby. I just hope as he gets older that he will come to me if he has any questions or needs help working through anything.
