Crazy baby crap

by Chelsea Myers on March 27, 2013

I should be in bed right now (I wrote this post last night), but how could I sleep while these things existed without my commentary on them? The placenta teddy bear kit.  Meaning that you yourself can preserve and sew your placenta into a stuffed toy.  If you want to raise a tiny little Hannibal […]


Scenes from the weekend

Scott made a new discovery recently.  Those things that flop around in front of his face when he gets excited are attached to him and are somehow under his control.  He’s been captivated by his hands and anything he can grasp. Shaking the rattle is a full body effort.  It can be exhausting.   A […]

I have to give credit for this yogurt recipe/method to two sources: first is my co-worker Nancy who turned me to to the Crockpot 365 website and to the site itself.  I’ve never made any of the other recipes from Crockpot 365, but I really should because this yogurt is a winner.  It takes about […]


Happy Baby

Please excuse my obnoxious, high pitched mom voice.  It could not be helped.

Yesterday I ran my first race since the Berbee Derby in Nov. of 2011!  This was my 5th Shamrock Shuffle – I ran in 2009-20011 and volunteered last year – and it remains one of my favorite races in Madison.  Other than some weirdness at the turn around where the returning runners were being directed […]

1.  I probably mentioned it before, but I’m running a race on Sunday!!!  This will be my first race since the Berbee Derby on Thanksgiving of 2011, and even though I know I won’t finish anywhere near my course PR of 48 something minutes, I’m still excited.  I think/hope that I’m in the position where […]


Scott’s baby book

So it’s only taken me 3 months to get around to writing in Scott’s baby book.  I have no problem collecting sentimental baby items or blogging about Scott as if I were being paid by the word, but for some reason I kept putting it off.  I blame it on the fact that I have […]

A work day in the life

Editor’s note: I know writing a post like this runs the risk of coming across as being totally self-obsessed, but 1. I have a blog so what can you expect? and 2. I actually love reading “day in the life” and other “snapshot/diary” posts from other bloggers so maybe one or two of you feel […]

3 months

Even though this picture was taken a week or so ago, I love it because I feel like it captures Scott’s emerging personality.  It’s true that every age is wonderful in its own way.  For the first few months, he was a tiny, cuddly doll who just wanted to be snuggled and cuddled (and changed […]

{ 2 comments } - I wish your baby could be president so you had only one thing to annoy me about on Facebook.

I really enjoy posting 5x per week, and I always feel like I have lots to write about, but some days it just doesn’t happen. I was going to write a post for today last night, but the internet wasn’t working for awhile (I think I accidentally turned it off – one of the light […]
