I heard something about your first postpartum poo.
It’s worse than pushing out a human. Some survival tips here.
Where did all the posts go on Waylon’s monthly reviews?
In an effort to continue focus on writing, I am moving personal posts about my kids to their own separate sites. An online scrapbook so no one has to use scissors or enter craft stores. For now they will remain public. You can access them here:
How did you cope with Waylon’s colic?
Waylon was the Charlie Sheen of babies.
I know you’re sick of hearing it, but I’m going to say it again: It gets better. So much better. If you’re looking for tangible advice, here’s my list of things to do when dealing with the colic:
1) Try Gripe Water.
2) Get take-out (aka: give yourself a break).
3) Ask for help.

Did you co-sleep?
Yes. We successfully co-slept from 3 months to 14 months.
Did you sleep train Waylon? How did that go? I thought he slept on a floor bed?
Yes, Waylon slept in a floor bed for a number of months in between co-sleeping and sleep training. It was all really great (and I would do it again) until my body decided I simply could not breastfeed through the night anymore.
Today he sleeps through the night and takes all his naps in a crib. We hope to transition him back to the floor bed when he’s around three years old or potty trained.
Do you mean does he ever care that his mom can read about him schnozzing other girls in college? Nah. And just to make sure, I have him read over anything extra juicy before posting. He always shrugs and says, “that’s fine.” We’re both pretty much an open book.
How did you guys meet?
You can read our love story here.
What does he do?
He’s in his third year of medical school at Penn State College of Medicine. A post on marrying a student here.
When did you first start blogging?
I started blogging back in 2007 in an attempt to publicly whine muse about post graduate life. I tried to sound smart (it was really boring). Eventually it expanded to share news and updates about pregnancy and the baby and that’s when I picked up a few extra readers besides my grandma.

What does “Motley” mean?
Exhibiting great diversity of elements; varied, mixed, out of the ordinary.
What happened to your monthly goals?
The monthly goal project was just for 2012, a way to cross a few things off the ol’ bucket list. It was okay. You can read more about it here.
What kind of camera do you use? Do you also have a video camera?
I use this camera for both pictures and video.
