Hi there!

I'm so glad you decided to stop by and check out my blog. In a nutshell, I'm a thirty-something wife and mommy. I struggled with infertility and fibroids for several years before conceiving my beautiful baby boy,and documented the latter part of that journey in my blog, Ova-EZ. Now that I'm a baby mama, I'm writing about all things mommy here in the 'hood.

Please feel free to go back and read through the posts on my old blog. I'm doing the mommy thing now but I never want to forget the road that brought me to this point, or the lessons I learned along the way. Hopefully something I've written may help someone else feel a little less alone.

That said, I should let you know that this blog is only a pit-stop on the way to my final bloggy homestead. I'll be moving into my "dream-blog" sometime in October. Until then I will continue to post here so please check back for updates on "moving day", and the very special "housewarming" I have planned. (I'm so excited about this and can't wait to share it with you!!! squee!)

So, go on, take a walk around the 'hood, and please, please, please leave a comment so I can drop by your blog, too.

Happy ICLW!!!

Dream "House"

In case you haven't noticed, I haven't been posting regularly. But it's not because I have nothing to say.

I mean, I could tell you all about lil man's latest feats - how he's gearing up to be a first-round draft pick for the Lakers come 2027; how he's mastered the art of the baby spoon - on his first try, no less; or even how we discovered he has a penchant for lion-taming.

But I'm trying to save all that for when I reach my final destination.

Oh wait, let's back up a bit.

whirr-r-r-r (sorry, the tape's rewinding)

I'm just passing through mommy 'hood. This blog is sort of a pied-à-terre, a place for me to lay my head while my dream house is being built.

My new and final blog-home will be finished sometime in October, (April @ April Showers Blog Design is hard at work building it as we speak), so for now I'm busy shopping (for topics) and (post-) designing, and trying to save all the juicy, awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping posts for when I finally move in.

I'm not ready to unveil the name of the bloggy knoll where I'm going to end up, but I will say that, from atop its bloggy peak, you'll get a much better view of my experience as a wife, an entrepreneur, and most importantly, lil man's mommy.

I will continue to post here for the time being so please check back for updates on "moving day", and the very special "housewarming" I have planned. (I'm very excited about this and can't wait to share it with you!!! squee!)

I hope you'll stick around and join me for the ride.

It's going to be a doozy.

Teething Troubleshoot

I had to take baby boy in to the ER early Wednesday morning. UGH!! So scary! He had a fever of 100.5 but he felt like he was on fire. By the time we got to the ER his fever had hit 102. I heard that and was so thankful we'd brought him in when we did.

They gave him some tylenol and then had us wait to have him checked out by the doc. We got there at 5:30 a.m. and didn't leave till after 10:00 a.m. The wait stunk but they were thorough, even taking a urine sample from my little one.

They couldn't pinpoint any one thing. His eyes and ears were fine, and he didn't have any congestion, but the doctor said that it was probably a little virus. I personally think he's teething. He's been chewing on anything he can get his hands on and the drool, well, let's just say he goes through several t-shirts a day and leave it at that.

The good thing is that his fever has broken and he's doing much better now. He is still a bit cranky because of the teething though so I'm opening up the floor to your suggestions.

What remedies have you used to get your little one through these 'teething times'?
