Have You Met the FlyLady?
I have a new self project. We’ll see it if it works. Anyone will tell you that I’m lazy. Especially my husband. (He’s lazy too but he doesn’t do it with nearly the amount of bravado that I do.) Seriously though, I was raised doing nothing. I never did chores, when I would offer to do something in the kitchen my mom would tell me to get out of her kitchen. It was her...
No Sleep Tonight
We nearly made it four months without a sick baby. I guess it was inevitable since first daddy had a cold, then mommy, now it’s baby’s turn. She doesn’t have much of a fever but she got a shot of infant tylenol and now she’s sleeping in my arms in our rocking chair. I might as well get a blanket and pillows and sleep on the floor of her room tonight because I’ll...
May I Have Your Attention Please!
I can now fit into my favorite pair of Dockers! That is all. Thank you for your time.
Why I Am Lucky Today
Today I am very lucky because I am officially a stay at home mom. My wonderful husband is working very hard for me to be able to stay home with our beautiful daughter. I put my two weeks notice in at work which felt funny since I haven’t actually worked since August 1. I was scheduled to go back to work on January 3 though so I had to let them know no later than today if I would be...
Cutest hiccups ever.
She Did It!
Today is the greatest day ever! Genevieve laughed out loud! It was the happiest sound in the world. It scared her though so she started crying after but she did it.
Another Sad Day
My baby’s wearing size 2 diapers now. Her butt needs to stop this growing thing because my heart can’t handle it.
That’s the total amount of sleep I’ve had since my last blog post. I had about two hours in the night and two more hours when Sebastian got up to take care of Genevieve after she woke up. I lost track of how many times I went to go check on her last night. Every time I went into her room I found the same thing; she was passed out having the best sleep of her life. Dad’s...
She's in Her Crib
She’s in her crib and I’m sitting here crying. I’m not sure if we’re going to make it through the night. She will probably end up back in the bassinet so I can get some sleep.
A Memory of My Mother
I’m watching Ellen interview Jane Fonda (who I love) and Jane’s talking about her hip replacement. It made me think of my mother. She had a hip and both knees replaced. Sometimes she’d ask me to grab something from somewhere for her. She’d say, “Baby will you go get me a glass of water from the kitchen? Your legs are younger than mine.” To this I would...
That's How She Rolls
My daughter almost rolled over and I almost missed it. She has decided she enjoys just hanging out in her crib. She will fall asleep in my arms and when I carefully, quietly transfer her into the crib she wakes up but it’s no problem because she’ll love playing in there for about 30 minutes. I was doing the dishes and I heard her making a lot of noise so I went in to check she was...
Camera Shy or I'm Going to Annoy Mom
My beautiful daughter is doing new things all the time. Of course all babies do but this is my baby so it’s magical. Today’s new thing: she found her rattle/teething toy in her lap, picked it up, and found her mouth with it. In the two seconds it took me to grab my phone to take a photo, she threw it down. She now refuses to do it again. Going against what people expect of her...

Everyday Something New
For the past several weeks Genevieve has been desperately trying to pull herself up. A few weeks ago I propped her up in between two pillows but she could only hold her balance for a few minutes. Today I sat her up and she stayed up for almost five minutes before getting tired and flopping over. She turned three months old yesterday.
