    For my husband’s academy graduation I rented the beautiful Canon 135L lens to capture the special occasion. I took tons of photos, maybe around a hundred. I can’t tell you the exact amount because I lost all of them after my daughter knocked over my laptop of seven years, and it was not worth the price of repair. Then what do you know, the external hard drive I used as a backup crashed the same week. The only photos from that event I have are web-sized versions I happened to send to my mother-in-law. Thankfully she hounded me for pictures or I wouldn’t even have those. Pictures from…

    I’ve got a random tutorial and fun video to share today, in case someone else out there happens to get terrorized by the tiny pests known as fruit flies. A few weeks ago I had them swarming in my house and not a clue where they came from. I mean obviously they’re attracted to fruit, but we didn’t have any old fruit, and even when I got rid or all the fresh produce they still seemed to linger. Finally I looked up how to kill fruit flies, and found some interesting ways to make fly traps. With a little trial, error, and tweaking I found what I think is the perfect way to kill…

    Jennifer

    Before you’ve probably shared your pregnancy news with the world (aka Facebook), your doctor may offer you a NT scan, or the nuchal translucency screening. This screening is performed towards the end of the first trimester in two parts – a blood test and a specialized ultrasound. The results are then evaluated by a physician and your baby’s risk for several different chromosomal abnormalities is calculated. So, should you do it? There are several things to consider. 1. It may not be covered by your insurance. As an optional test, you may be footing the bill. Always check…
  • 5 Fabulous Cloth Diaper Tips (No, You Haven’t Heard Them All!)

    1. The sun is your friend. Most of the time, even with the ickiest baby poop, my diapers would come out of the wash looking brand new (having a sprayer helps, I think). But, if your diapers come out of the washer looking less than perfect, just hang them up outside and let the sun do its thing. Seriously, the sun will bleach the stains right out of your diapers! 2. You might have the wrong type of washing machine. It’s true, you can wash cloth diapers in a high efficiency front loader, but you’re more apt to have issues with detergent build-up, ammonia stink, and other fun things. A good,…

I hoped for the best, but mentally prepared myself for all sorts of worsts, just in case. Then, in the final moments of my nearly 24-hour labor, I ended up having a thing I didn’t even remember reading about: chorioamnionitis, or “chorio” (like Oreo with a hard C sound at the beginning), for short. It wasn’t as bad as many of the other “worsts” I’d prepared myself for,…
