Food for your kids…

I have been very lucky that my son Spencer is a GREAT eater!  His first solid food was actually in Scotland at almost 11 months old and you guessed it, was bangers and mash, followed soon by fish and chips.  Funny, we were so nervous as first time parents to feed him solids and then we went crazy.  He’s never looked back, and my husband even fed him some Haggis and neaps (rutabaga) this past weekend […]

A teenage dad’s perspective on twins

My name is Keith.  Three years ago, I was finishing up my last year of high school, and I was your typical 18 year old and the most important things to me were working out, music and fast cars.  Then I met a girl, and we fell in love. I would have never that my goals, priorities and my whole life would be changed so quickly.  She got pregnant, and we were terrified as she was 16.  A […]

A look from the inside...PPD

An article from http://www.ellieadorn.com/ an amazing blog about depression, anxiety, PPD and life from a friend of mine, Cristi Comes.

With my first child, I thought “I’m cool,” my meds will protect me from PPD, and I think for the most part they did. BUT I wasn’t so lucky when I had Ellie. Perhaps […]

The little things…

I’ve realized as a first time mom to a preemie, my view of so many things is different than other first time moms.  Don’t get me wrong, all first time moms get excited over the firsts, but as a preemie mom…it’s like the excitement of the iPhone coming out for the first time when small things happen!  Spencer didn’t roll over in both directions until he hit 10 months.  Until he was a year, he couldn’t […]

15 months complete as a first time Mom

So I’ve made it through the first 15 months as a first time mom, but life as I knew it has really changed.  Before my son, my husband and I were both employed and enjoyed Champagne and cheese Sundays, dinner with friends, belonged to wine clubs, travelled whenever we wanted, went to the bathroom in private, and now… that seems like a dream ago.  Albeit I’m in a beautiful dream now, one with not much travelling, less sleep […]

The NEW cost of P17 to prevent premature labor

 Recently, KV Pharmaceutical of suburban St.Louis won government approval to exclusively sell the drug, known as Makena (Mah-KEE’-Nah). The March of Dimes and many obstetricians supported that because it means quality will be more consistent and it will be easier to get. That being said, the cost will change from $10-20 per shot to $1,500 per shot, costing approximately $30,000 to prevent premature labor.  Oh but don’t you worry, since they’ve made this nearly impossible […]
