The Intro

Hello and welcome to yet another mommy blog!  I've been wanting to start my own since my daughter was born in December, but I also wanted to sleep, eat, shower, and... well, you get the picture.  From the very beginning, baby and I had a bit of trouble breastfeeding, which resulted in long struggled nursing sessions.  From there we ran right into a milk soy protein intolerance (also known as mpsi or dairy allergy), infant reflux, the battle of trying to find the right medication, reactions to said medications, the array of tummy troubles that went along with them, scheduling our entire day around dosing them, and the world of tongue and lip ties.  Whew, right?  That's a lot to cover in one sentence, so I have very intention of coming back to each subject separately to share our experiences in the hopes that they might help someone else.

But, to get back on topic, I think you can see why a mommy blog just hasn't been a real possibility for me until now.  Not that we have cleared all these hurdles, but we are at least moving forward now, and I hope the time will manifest.  Had I moved forward with the blog in the very beginning, you would have seen one panicked, desperate post and then radio silence for months.  Or you would have had the pleasure of witnessing my mental demise as we struggled to regain our footing.  Either way, I'm not sure that's exactly how I had hoped we would meet, so here I am, Day 1, and I'm starting with a laugh.

Thanks for reading and joining me as I figure out what the duck I'm doing as a new mom.
