-I’m further convinced that being a mom makes you say things you think make sense and/or are funny, when in fact it isn’t the case at all. Number of times I’ve said unfunny jokes out loud in the past 24 hours: 3. I’d give you examples, but I’m embarrassed. When I try to make a joke, I immediately think to myself , “delete! delete!” except it doesn’t quite work that way 😉
-I’ve started to actually enjoy scrapbooking:
I’ll never be a pro or anything like that, but I’m having fun decorating the pages of Liv’s baby book.
Speaking of baby books, thank you so much to those who entered the Ruby Love giveaway! I LOVED reading your sweet and funny memories. Here’s the winner:
Please send me your info to fitnessista at gmail dot com and I’ll forward it to the baby book fairy 🙂
-I decided on the BabyHawk mei tei – it’s like a wrap meets Ergo, not bulk at all and still looks pretty.
(decided to roll with the flower)
That was my first time putting it on and while I loved it, I haven’t carried her around in it yet because I’m worried I didn’t tie it right. She feels secure but can’t see out the top- any tips?
-I’m starting to learn to listen to my intuition a little bit better when it comes to things with Livi. I think it’s because it’s my first time, I’m worried about going by the book on everything, even when it may not be the best way to do things for us. For example, the rice cereal. In my mind I was thinking “it’s just a filler and doesn’t have much nutrition” but figured I should give it to her because the pediatrician said it’s the first step to solids, and our ped is awesome. The rice cereal: not awesome. It tore up Livi’s stomach and she was cranky and miserable all day. I haven’t given it to her since, and am waiting to see if she seems hungry in between meals to check with the ped about giving her fruits and veggies, or another type of cereal (like oats). While she’s definitely curious about the food we eat, she seems happy and satisfied with her b milk and bottles.
-Sometimes I’ll let her smell different spices or bits of what I’m eating to see what she thinks. Her absolute favorite: cinnamon. I’ll take the lid off and put it near her nose, and she looks up at me like “what is that?! I want it!”
-A book that echoes our sentiments of the first few weeks:
A funny gift from my friend Judi- the illustrations are surprisingly gorgeous for such a crass title 😉
So while that won’t be our nighttime staple over here –I might read it to her and make up a story with the illustrations until she can read haha- and I recently picked up a few of my favorites from when I was little, including “Goodnight, Moon.” It’s so calming and peaceful- Livi’s favorite part is the tiny mouse.
What was your favorite book growing up? I used to love all of the Little Goldenbooks- my nana had an entire cabinet full and we could pick out a few for her to read every time we were over. I just ordered Liv “The Poky Little Puppy” 🙂
