Three Things Thursday

by Chelsea Myers on January 31, 2013

Two about returning to work.  One that’s just interesting. 1. Yesterday was my first day back at work and it went really well.  I shed some tears Tuesday night, but it was go-go-go getting ready in the morning, and by the time I stopped to think about being at work and away from Scott, I […]

I’m not going to be a stay-at-home mom (SAHM) – I knew that way back when conceiving Scott was still on the “to-do” list – but I’ve had the past 6 weeks to get a little taste of what that would be like. First, being a SAHM mom is hard!  Scott is by far the […]

Working out at home 1.0

by Chelsea Myers on January 29, 2013

If I had my way, I’d be able to run outside all year long and hit the gym when I wanted to lift weights, take a class or cross-train.  Running outside is way more interesting than running on a treadmill, even with the finest of Netflix shows at the ready for my watching pleasure, and […]

Mr. Scott

by Chelsea Myers on January 28, 2013

7 whole weeks old!   Fortunately, fears about 6-week sleep regression proved to be unfounded, and Scott’s even starting to stretch the time until his first wake up.  On Saturday night, he even made it from 9 pm to 4 am.  I think he was overly tired, and I don’t expect it to happen again until he’s […]

Three Things Thursday

by Chelsea Myers on January 24, 2013

1. Thank you to everyone who joined our Meal Train and brought us dinners over the last few weeks (and a special thanks to Jenny for organizing it).  It was wonderful to just have one less thing to think about while we were getting used to being new parents.  Although I’ve learned to do a […]

We’re attending our daycare orientation next Monday, and I’ll be headed back to work next Wednesday, so I’m trying to figure out what I need to do to prepare and what questions I should ask at the orientation.  Comments and suggestions are very much welcome! Daycare: Here’s a list of things we are told the […]

Scott’s memory box

by Chelsea Myers on January 22, 2013

As a first-time mom, it was only fitting that I kept approximately 1 million things to commemorate Scott’s birth, and I would need something to collect them in. I looked around for memory boxes at Target and on Amazon, but I didn’t see anything I liked so I decided to order one from Etsy.  The […]

Mr. Scott

by Chelsea Myers on January 21, 2013

This has been a much better week as far as sleeping and general fussy/grumpiness.  HOWEVER, Scott hit 6 weeks old today, which seems like it’s a notoriously difficult time for both moms and babies (baby is hungry allthetime), so I’m bracing myself for my angel to turn into a gremlin for awhile. 6-weeks old (as […]
