Rissa’s sleep schedule has made another shift recently and I can’t help but be frustrated by it. I love my daughter and all, but my blog post writing time is mostly at night while she sleeps. However, she’s not cooperating quite so well. I’ve lost 1-2 hours a night due to this

The other night while we were hanging out with my brother-in-law and his wife, we started talking about the first night hone with baby. They have two kids with a third on the way, so it was interesting to see how similar or fears and concerns were. With all the excitement of
Before becoming a mom, I never thought about the state of public high chairs. I even used to think the people who used seat covers were a little too germaphobic, though i figured it made for easier cleanup. Now that I need to use them… Yuck. That’s all I can say. Yuck.

I’m working with a local mama who loves fluff to try and help other local mamas in need get cloth diapers. We have our first class today so I won’t be around much. Unfortunately, the mamas who registered is down to about three but they are pregnant and in need of help
Many of you know I’ve become a lot more concerned about what goes on Rissa’s skin and in her mouth. I cloth diaper and try to use natural products and food when I can. Another area I’m trying to be more conscientious about is her toys. These go in her mouth ALL.THE.TIME. I want

Yep. It’s happening. She doesn’t quite have the move-one-hand-forward-pull-and-move-opposite-knee-forward basics down yet, but baby is learning to crawl. She’s really quite fascinating to watch. Well, now that she’s more creative in her movement. It wasn’t very fun having her cry every two seconds because she was stuck or couldn’t manipulate her body

Karma, quality scores… Is it really about expanding your reach or is it moving into a blog post judging service? When I was first asked to join Triberr by Dino, one of the founders, the service was pitched to me as an automatic retweet system. He was aware of our ReTweet Club
The last “Ask the Web Guy” post went pretty well. I’m glad I could help a few people out with their questions. This time around I thought I would give everyone a quick tip or trick before asking for questions. The buzz these last few weeks has been Google+ and their accompanying
Moms are notorious for taking lots of pictures of their kids. We want to capture and document every moment. I can see why now – it’s amazing how much Rissa has changed in just 8 months! Technology has continued to make this passion easier. No more film. Cameras on everything. Now the
