Everything we do in life has a purpose. The purpose of this blog is a place for me to tell my experiences, in hopes of helping others.
The primary subject I want to focus on is parenting.
Fifteen months ago I became a mother. This was a life-long dream of mine and on December 12, 2009, my dream became a reality with the birth of my son Austin. In these short 15 months, I have experienced more than I ever imagined. Below is a short list of our obstacles - I plan to discuss these challenges in future posts.
1. NICU - I never imagined my full term baby would be admitted to the NICU
2. Tongue tie
4. Sleep - mostly lack thereof
6. Food allergies
I will leave with why I chose to name my blog "Adventures Raising "A" Family". My name is Affton. I married a man named Adam. We have a crazy dog named Astro. We have a wonderful son named Austin. We are expecting a new precious baby girl in July and her name will be Aubrey. Yes, we are "that" family.
I chose the word adventure because of a quote that I love and feel is true in many situations. This quote was very fitting while I was pregnant with Austin. It also holds true for this blog...
