A Very Special One-Year-Old and His Mom

Posted on August 23rd, 2015

One year ago yesterday, a cherished and unusual little person named Kieran was born. His mom, my friend Skye, already knew he would be born with a cleft lip and palate. It was a tough time when she found out about it, because there are a lot of challenges that go with having a cleft […]

Happy Second Birthday, Rainbow Baby

Posted on October 1st, 2014

Dear Delicious Little Girl, Two years ago yesterday, you came peacefully into the world, and immediately began howling. It was a day joyous beyond description for the people who love you. Since then, we’ve learned a lot about you. Some things we learned right away: You like to be snuggled – but not every second. […]

Toddler Tracks: Baby AB and the Snackalicious Journey

Posted on March 26th, 2014

Dear Baby AB, Here’s another chapter of the Chronicles of You at One Year and a Half. This one’s about food! You and food have a great relationship. I’m really glad I read Child of Mine by Ellyn Satter (thank you, Leslie) and Baby-Led Weaning by Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett (thank you, Megan) before […]

Toddler Tracks: Baby AB and the Power of Toddling

Posted on March 19th, 2014

Dear Baby AB, Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve written of your exploits here, even though – or perhaps because – you’re continually astonishing. There is so much to catch up on! At the end of this month, you will be a year-and-a-half old. Eighteen months. That’s big. The first thing I guess […]

A Special Anniversary

Posted on December 14th, 2013

Today is a really special day. There are great numbers of us thinking of Newtown today, and praying for those families who are dealing with the first anniversary of the worst day of their lives. I have thought of those families all year long, and send them extra love today. (For a way to express […]

A Little Night Weaning

Posted on December 4th, 2013

November was obviously a banner month for Barely Blogging At All. Sigh. I’d like to say that it’s because my other project was progressing in leaps and bounds, but I’m afraid that’s not the case either. What there HAS been: some serious sleep issues – for all of us. Especially me. So today, I’m thrilled […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #17: Cozy

Posted on November 20th, 2013

It’s getting cold these days, and it smells like winter out there. Here are some warm and snuggly fashions… from the last time it was cold (so, like, half a lifetime ago for the model in question). *** Related Posts:Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue #2: “Paris Daisy”Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue # 16: […]

Baby AB’s Fashion Blog – Issue # 16: Party Dress

Posted on October 29th, 2013

We’ve had some festive times lately, and I do tend to milk those, fashion-wise, when it comes to Baby AB. The wedding in Cape Cod was obviously an important opportunity to wear this pink gingham with satin roses. The dress being sleeveless – and Cape Cod being quite windy – we added the sweater (beautifully […]

Undulating Perspective II: Blurry?

Posted on October 25th, 2013

Odd how my last post was about climbing ladders out of dark places… and then this week I’ve felt barely able to climb a very short ladder. I’ve just gone back and re-read a post from almost four years ago, in which I discussed how widely varied is my outlook on life, depending on several […]

Celebrating One Year of Baby AB

Posted on September 30th, 2013

Dear Baby AB, It’s hard to believe it’s already, and only, been a year since you came on the scene in person. The night I laboured with you, so many people could hardly wait to for you to arrive. There were people scattered across the city, the province, the continent, who were thrilled to hear […]
