Standard Equipment

Here are some things that for micropreemies or other kids with compromised lungs, are 'standard equipment'. Miss Adeleine is no exception. Thankfully, they have just become a part of life and are generally no big deal. But, I'll bet the average household doesn't know what a PiggOStat is.  I didn't, until I had to shove my little kid in one.

Farm Update

Daddy giving a lesson on mushrooms in the forest. This was the "Poof" gesture.
Sooooo...what's happening with the farm? Well, everything and nothing at the same time.

New Years Resolutions

It is approaching the new year and I haven't blogged in 6 months. So, I have some resolutions....the first being to try and blog at least once a week. If only to update on how boring/insane my life is. The second is to try and fit into pants again. More on this later.

Going Back to Work

I have managed to survive my first two months back at work after being away on maternity leave for 15 months. After I remembered what exactly it is that I did at work I realized that there are  many advantages to being back:

Stokke High Chair Review

This post goes in the "Baby Gear We Love" category. I won't post about the baby gear we find useless unless someone asks me about something in particular. Or unless I get ticked off while shopping. I like talking about stuff that is AWESOME!!

Finding Real Food

I last went on a rant about hidden ingredients in food last June - remember the sugar in salt? Since then I have found a few more foods that I just assumed contained what was in their name.

Peanut Butter - contains sugar and hydogenated vegetable oil (This list is for Kraft. Jiffy and Skippy contain more ridiculous ingredients like malodextrin, mono and diglycerides and about 6 things other than peanuts).
