Yeah...been busy. But I had to write how much the baby and I enjoyed our green smoothie for breakfast this morning! I think I'm on to something. He's been so picky about what he wants to eat lately, but he always wants what we're eating...or drinking. And by the time... Continue reading

So I wrote this whole long post yesterday about how big he's looking in pictures now compared to his cousins, and it got destroyed, surprise, surprise. I should really approach the people at Blogspot and Wordpress who have the "baby diaries" blogs no longer in use to see if they'd... Continue reading

So unless his tastes change drastically within the next month, we're thinking of doing pizza and ice cream (and cake, of course!) for the baby's first birthday. He likes the cheese and tomatoes picked off when they cool down, and I suppose we'll do a salad and some fruit on... Continue reading

He's started getting all grabby grabby with me when I'm about to put him down somewhere, even if it's for the two of us to play on the floor together. He does not want to let go! He's also pretty much given up eating baby oatmeal, and usually in the... Continue reading

He has been pulling himself up as much as possible lately — not even really onto his feet, just much more actively onto his knees against the table, the couch, you, whatever's nearby — but today he freaking pulled himself up to standing with the help of Daddy's leg, and... Continue reading

He is a champ. Took another long nap today, is doing well teething, is now wanting to eat EVERYTHING we eat and drink EVERYTHING we drink. That works when it's water or juice, but not when it's Coke, wine or beer! Ha ha...he spit out a green pepper yesterday and... Continue reading

Do all babies go through another phase when they hate to have their diapers changed and hate getting in the car seat? I am baffled. He screams and wriggles so much when we lay him down to change his diaper that it's actually quite disturbing the way he arches his... Continue reading

He's acting a little clingy and fussy again today, even though it's nowhere near naptime. I think until all his teeth are in I'm just going to be blaming it on that, aren't I? He likes to make noise in church. It's a little disconcerting, because it makes me want... Continue reading

He looks so long, or so "tall" to me these days, like someone just took him and stretched him out at both ends...in just a couple weeks he'll be 11 months old, which is incredible! He had a two-hour nap for the nanny yesterday. I hope that becomes a pattern!... Continue reading

I keep forgetting to post. I think. The baby learned how to drink out of a straw yesterday. He's also been extremely curious about how the bathtub gets filled up at night. He's in this very inquisitive, learning, HUNGRY stage, and I can't keep up with all he wants to... Continue reading

He was up considerably again last night coughing. WTF? I know the doctors always say not to call unless he has a fever, but this is ridiculous. I feel like he has been sick since February. Anyways, I think I literally wished the cold away. I just kept saying in... Continue reading

Can you believe he has SIX teeth now? Yep, he cut another one last night. Four on top, two on bottom. Pretty amazing. I still think he's working on two down below, but if I'm right they've been taking even longer than the top ones, so maybe I'm imagining things.... Continue reading

I realized today how nice this time change could be....he could sleep until at least 7:30 every day, at least for a while! That would give me my nice half hour after work each morning to lay on the couch and read. It calms me. It steadies me. It's my... Continue reading

The nanny had to cancel and my backup had class, so we worked from his YaYa's house yesterday and boy was it interesting! Don't you love it when kids go through that "Mine mine mine" stage? Or I particularly love "Not yours, not yours, not yours!" It's a phase they... Continue reading

This is something I say to him and call him probably several times a day. It's so cute when he laughs and shows all four (well, five, really!) teeth! Those top front two are real chompers, as we call them in my family. I can't wait to see what he'll... Continue reading

The baby finally cut another tooth. He was so happy today it was like he knew it and was proud, not just that he felt better! I think he still has two more coming, but he won't let me poke around much in there. He has started eating all of... Continue reading

Wow, I forgot to post, two days in a row. Mommyhood definitely makes one more forgetful...or more mindful of other things. I watched the movie "The Secret" on Friday, so now I'm obsessed with the law of attracion. I shouldn't even say I forgot or forget anything. My memory, actually,... Continue reading

I just want to hug and praise him when he's good. He woke up at least 3-4 times last night between 9 and 11 or so, but since he wasn't coughing, and my husband said he was just taking advantage of us, I started going back to the SleepEasy method... Continue reading

Baby woke three times last night. Hoping tonight is better. VapoRub on feet, nighttime Orajel on gums. Be a good boy now, ya hear? Continue reading

I still can't believe it, reading the beginning of yesterday's post, that he's 10 months today. Holy. Cow. Last night was rough. He awoke at midnight with the cough; I stayed with him until 1 something. Props for me then, at 2:30, when I asked the hubs to get up... Continue reading

...he's 10 months tomorrow! Holy panic attack, Batman! Time to start planning the first birthday party! No, but seriously — that's insane. Where does the time go? Oh let me count the ways, I know. Yet I still can't believe it. Nanny #2 did a pretty good job today. I... Continue reading
