So I have a lot of friends that use Blogger, so I've decided to pack up and move over there. Thing have been CRAZY here the last few weeks, but hopefully I'll get back at it soon. Here's the link, please update your feeds and/or bookmarks! Don't worry Mom, I'll... Continue reading

I've been busy. Busy with little Peanut, and busy trying to win a snowblower. But since I last posted, Peanut has had many firsts. His first time getting his thumb into his mouth (without fist/other fingers in there too). His first time grabbing onto a toy. And his first time... Continue reading

Peanut is starting to get interested in his feet! Several times today, while he's been in a seated position I've noticed him staring very intently at them, and bringing his feet together in a clapping fashion. So exciting! New stuff! Hopefully he'll be grabbing at them soon too! So on... Continue reading

This morning's nap, and the beginning of my idea for 'things happening right now!' We were just doing some tummy time while I was waiting for the shower to be open and he wanted to stop, so he shimmied onto his side and promptly zonked out. Too cute :) He... Continue reading

The in-law invasion weekend is completed. As you can see, much fun was had by all, by the smiles. Tonight or tomorrow I'm going to have a new interesting(ish) post (because my posts are usually blah and mundane) showing Peanut's life in regular(ish) intervals. Like the first two will be...

Peanut rolled over from his back to his side today. I almost didn't find the camera in time to snap the picture! I wish I saw him actually turning, but I suppose I'll see it many times in the future! :D Hopefully we'll get a repeat performance soon! He also... Continue reading

Peanut went to bed last night at 845. He was up at 915 and didn't go back to sleep until 12:15. And even then he woke up around 12:45 and it took me 10 minutes to get him back to sleep. We ended up running a hairdryer while I rocked... Continue reading

It is ending soon. It wasn't entirely relaxing, but it was different and good. Boi got off at 4 on Tuesday, and then had off Wednesday and Thursday. On Tuesday he came home tired, and Peanut had had his appointment. The day started out funny, his sleeping has slowly been... Continue reading

9 weeks old and he's getting quite good at stuffing half his fist in his mouth. Also, here he is taking his morning nap, zonked, arm completely comfortable straight up in the air. I thought it was cute :) Boi says hi and says I should write "stuff." So there... Continue reading

Today Peanut is 2 months old! He has spent the day most whiney unfortunately. Lately days he doesn't sleep much, he's whiney. Days he sleeps all day, whiney. We've apparently hit an uncooperative whiney phase. That or the dwindling amount of dairy in my system is still bothering him a... Continue reading

So I screwed up and ate cheese. Then 6 hours later he got scream worthy gas. So then I figured, well lets make absolutely sure. So I drank milk. And ate pizza. And ate yogurt. And I was happy. And then the last two nights Peanut was lucky to make... Continue reading

Since he woke up at 7PM, we're obviously just screwed. So we're going forwards and not backwards. We'll get him to bed a little later each night until we're fixed. So I've got my Mountain Dew and we're playing at 1:45 at night. In the dark though. On the off... Continue reading

Fuck this, neither this kid nor I are ever sleeping at night again. He's been up since 1145 and it's 5 now. His longest nap was maybe 30 minutes. He's been like this since Sunday. I'm doomed. Continue reading

Peanut is 7 weeks tomorrow! At the end of the month I'll have accurate weight and measurements! I just have to decide between now and then if I want to do the normal vaccination route or the alternate. It's not like I don't have the time to take him in... Continue reading

So yeah, I'm tired, but I wanted to share this. The day we brought him home (1 week) to the other day at 6 weeks. He's bursting out! He didn't even fit that great the first week so we had to pad the straps a bit! Aww look at that... Continue reading

Looks like Peanut had his growth spurt, hoping that's why he was so inconsolable for me this week. I had him on my lap on a pillow, suspected he was longer than he ought to be since his feet weren't on the pillow, so we stretched him out best we... Continue reading

Ok, so, crib is going to have to wait. His grunting syndrome is much much worse when he's flat on his back, so the plan has been altered to him sleeping in his own room, but in his rock 'n play. He's elevated in it. So I'm trying to put... Continue reading

So last night, I decided to try operation crib full force again. I let him zonk out, put him in, and he slept fine for about 2.5 hours. Alas, he zonked out almost 2 hours before Boi got home, and I really didn't manage to nap or be productive during... Continue reading

Ok, we're trying the crib tonight. I don't know that it's going to help a whole lot, but maybe it will be great. I barely slept again last night, we ended up napping till after 11 just to try to get the required amount of sleep in short bursts. We... Continue reading

Yay, my sister and her bf flew home yesterday! AND she says she wants to change a diaper, score! Though I have to say, for being a SAHM, I have it pretty easy on the diaper front. A) Boi is totally cool about changing him when he's home, so I... Continue reading

So this morning, after his diaper change, I carried him down to the scale and did the mommy+baby-mommy weigh-in technique. A week ago, nekkid Peanut weighed 6lbs 14 oz, this morning, Peanut+clothes+clean diaper weighed 8 1/2 pounds. It may not be official, but he's clearly gaining weight! People say it's...

Less than a week now ;) And Sis will be home soon too! Logan was just complaining to me the other day about how you were taking your sweet time getting down here. You better come with snuggles to console him!
