Mom Blog Monday Blog Hop



The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom
I am the featured blogger this week on the blog hop! So welcome to all my new readers and followers :) I now almost have a crawler on my hands! Perfect timing too. Tomorrow afternoon, my dad is flying in from Connecticut to visit for the week. I was hoping Boston would start crawling in time for his grandpa to see. He gets up on his knees and rocks, then goes flat. He did crawl forward one time today. He got up then threw his body forward, it was pretty hilarious. A few other "milestones" from this week. He has discovered his toes and can now grab both feet. He also discovered it's fun to suck on them! That makes diaper changes pretty challenging. He also sat in a high chair in a restaurant on his own for the first time. I went to Applebees for a baby shower (I had THREE this week, and two next week) and I ordered rice with my meal because on Wednesday he ate all my rice. Well, he didn't want the rice so I could've gotten the fries I WANTED to eat and instead he ate all the turkey off my sandwich. So many babies this week too, my friend had her son on Thursday, and another friend had her daughter on Friday!


Yum, toes


Not so sure he wants to try the asparagus. 

This is month #4 TTC #2. Got VERY positive OPK's for the last 3 days, so I'm thinking today will be the day I ovulate. I'm hoping it doesn't take as long as last time. I found out I was pregnant with Boston 3 days before I was suppose to see the infertility specialist. Tried constantly for one full year, and wasn't on birth control for 1-2 years before that (my husband was however, deployed that whole year). Wish me luck! I would really like to get pregnant when Boston is 9 months, I think 18 months apart would be perfect.

  1. Your son is such a cutie pie! 18 months does sound like a good amount of time between them.

  9. I found you on the blog hop and have to say that I found out that I was pregnant with my first the night before I had an appointment with the fertility clinic. I had been off of birth control for three years and we had been actively trying for a little over one [year]. That said, there are only eighteen months between my first two and sixteen months between my second and third. We were NOT trying, I was on the "mini" pill that they give to nursing mothers AND my husband generally used a condom (is that too much info?! Sorry!). I also suffered from PCOD which generally makes it very difficult to get pregnant. Although I had a hysterectomy (because of the PCOD), before that my husband considered getting a vasectomy, but I told him that we would be those people who get vasectomies and tubes tied, yet still end up having a baby (which I now think wouldn't be SO bad)! Anyway, having them so close together did a number on me physically AND mentally, I wouldn't change a thing! I do wish that I was more present and able to be the parent we all want to be when they were all so young and I was so tired, but we did it and we are all still (pretty much) standing! Good luck to you and your beautiful family!
