Krista- Always have a glass of wine while dining with your kids at restaurants. It will take the edge off. These are always stressful times; Shop at Marshalls for toddler shoes- name brands for 1/3rd of the price; Use EASY routine with newborns.
Melissa and Meghan- Use muffin pans to serve meals to toddlers; Start Blogging to have a record for Hannah and to share with family and friends.
Meghan- Shop at Payless and Target too; Subscribe to Baby News Emails; Heartsong Music is the Best.
Polly-Always stock ground beef in your freezer for a quick dinner; Playdates are only a house away around my neighborhood; Cooking is possible; Switch Baby toys ever so often
Cristi- Turn your monitor off once in a while; stock up on little ketchup packets; Pass on all Hannah's clothes to another new mommy one day!
Michelle- Take turns getting to sleep in.
Nancy- Have a date night!
Ashley-Switch with your friends for free babysitting.
Misti- Where do I begin?- Hannah made it through her 1st year because of all your advice!
Hillary- Start Traditions with your children now -The pickle ornament and The Elf on a Shelf are 2 of my favorite.
- My sister, Tootie- Burping advice to Pooping advice- Sisters are the best!
Carlene- Treasure each moment because they really do grow up fast; Put baby oil on newborn's head to prevent cradle cap.--Hannah's head was always beautiful!
My Mommy- Stay home with your children if you can. You will never regret spending this precious time with them! (And of course Mommies are always right!)
Thank you to all the mothers out there who have really made a difference in my life... Because of you when Hannah looks at me and smiles and thinks I am the best mommy ever, my heart can also melt. One day when she is a mother I will pass on my little secret to her too .

Today I went to Jungle Java! This is my new favorite place!! Here, like most places, I am Miss Independent! I can climb up different high surfaces and then slide down the slide all on my own. Then, I repeat, repeat, repeat! Mommy likes it because she can drink her favorite expressos, and I can have loads of fun!
