• Five-Month-Old Roman James

    Dena October 9, 2013

    On Monday, my sweet boy turned five-months-old. It’s pretty extraordinary. In life, I’ve always found that there are days & hours that go slow but that the months & years always fly by. Never has this been more true than since I have become a…

    “These are the days that must happen to you.” — Walt Whitman I virtually skipped Roman’s four-month-old update post. It’s been so hard to write because things keep changing so much every day. Yes, he is developing and growing — that is to be expected…

  • Four-Month-Old Roman James

    Dena September 9, 2013

    Yesterday my sweet boy turned four-months-old. He is a little cherub. I hear him let out a little sigh in the morning and I know that he’s awake. Tired though I may be, I am so excited to get out of bed, walk to his…

    Dena September 5, 2013

    A few weeks ago, we began introducing Roman to solid food. How exciting for a pudgy baby like him! The first thing that I gave him was a bit of mashed up avocado. Altogether it amounted to the size of a pea. I put the…

  • Three-Month-Old Roman James

    Dena July 31, 2013

    Yesterday my little Roman James turned three-months-old. And just like that, my “4th trimester” is over. My baby boy is the sweetest thing. He is so big already — sixteen pounds, so pudgy! His vocabulary (goo’s, gah’s, moo’s and mah’s) is expanding every day. He…

  • The Simplest Days

    Dena July 16, 2013

    I remain convinced that sometimes the sweetest days are the simple ones. Perhaps it’s because when I’m slowed down, not doing too much, I take the time to really observe and appreciate how blessed my life is. Roman has been sleeping in his room, in…

  • (Not) Sleeping & Breastfeeding

    Dena July 14, 2013

    Things are never what you expect them to be. During my pregnancy, my main concern about breastfeeding was that I wouldn’t be able to. I knew so many women that wanted to breastfeed but were unable to. I hoped and prayed that I would be…
