Teething. It's the worst. I've found some things that help when all else fails. The teething is so bad at the moment that not only is Tootsie Roll not sleeping, he just screams at night. Even when I'm holding him. So here are my 5 favorite things that you can purchase on amazon to help your baby cope with teething pain. Good luck to us all. 1. Learning Curve Baby Buzzing Bee When he chomps down on the antenna, he gets a little gum massage. That has to feel good! 2. Vulli … [Read more...]

5 Fave Spiritual Books to Read During Lent #5Faves

5F st faustina

Jenna over at Call Her Happy is busy having a baby so she's doing a lot of guest posts.  I'm not sure if her Wednesday Link Up is happening at the moment, but I'm going to do it anyway.
