  • Hello, Instagram

    This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith. To say that she has a piece of my heart would be an understatement.

fisher-price rock ‘n glide soother: review

fisher-price-glider-1A few weeks ago, we ended up packing up Remy’s Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother. I have yet to love any baby product as much as I loved her glider.

I’m sure most of you know by now Remy suffers from infant reflux. Diagnosed at less than two months old, we quickly learned that whenever she slept flat on her back at night, she couldn’t eat the next day. It was a horrible situation. I had read online that one remedy was to swaddle them and strap them into a swing or glider. Desperate, Geoffrey and I tried it. Her reflux began to clear up, which allowed her to continue to eat and sleep well. So for the next six months, Remy slept in her glider.

fisher-price-glider-2I loved this Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Glide Soother for many reasons. The first is because I always knew that Remy was strapped in, on her back, and safe every night. I loved the faint green light that stayed on while the glider was on. It acted as a nightlight, and whenever I wanted to see her beautiful face, all I had to do was look over at her and she was illuminated. I loved the music that it played. Because of it, she learned to fall asleep to any lullaby. I loved that you could take the glider off of the track and it would become a rocker. I also loved that it either swayed left to right or front to back. Remy preferred the back and forth motion. I loved the print. The fabric was incredibly soft, and stayed that way even after several washes. I loved its size- it was neither too big nor too small. I loved its handles, the bar with the toys, and the colour of it. Honestly, every aspect was just perfect to me.

When Remy turned eight months old, she no longer wanted any part of her glider. Since then, she has been sleeping in her crib. This has caused her reflux to flare up again, which makes it difficult for her to breathe when she eats. As a result, we’re back to square one in trying out different ways to elevate her head when she sleeps all the while trying to keep her safe. It’s an ongoing process, but one that I hope we’re making progress with. How I wish that they made gliders for toddlers!

If you were ever looking for the best glider on the market, then look no further than this one. It truly is the most amazing product for babies.
