Sophie is starting to fall asleep without her...
Sometimes. Especially at naptime, she’s having a bottle then going straight to sleep, no paci needed. Bedtime is the only time she really needs it anymore. :D
My sugar pie has learned to say "dada"
Oh Etsy, you've done it again...
That is the PERFECT Halloween costume for Sophie. I’m in love with it. Plus I’m going to get this shirt (the purple one with the cobwebs) to go with the tutu and the hat: Now to talk Bret into it… :D
Sophie can get up on her hands and knees and rock...
We’re sooo close to crawling!
I'm quitting my job and becoming a SAHM/full-time...
Me and Bret have decided that we’re going to wait to get an apartment, maybe until next summer. The money from my job is nice, but right now my top priorities need to be Sophie and school, and I feel like work is taking away from those. So I’m going to get to spend more time with my baby girl and focus on doing well in college, and maybe get my doula certification. :)
Separation anxiety is starting.
If I walk out of the room, or even turn my back to her, Sophie gets very upset. The minute I walk back in or turn around she starts smiling. Silly girl. :)
New Carseat and ERF
So, I ordered Sophie’s new carseat today. I went with the Britax Marathon 70 in brown & pink. From the reviews I read, it seemed like the safest and it rear-faces up to 40 pounds. And yes, I’ll be keeping her rear-facing until she’s reached the maximum limits for her seat. :) http://thestir.cafemom.com/toddler/120133/proof_that_older_taller_kids
I spent $500 yesterday.
Tomorrow, I will have a six month old.
And right now she’s sitting on my lap hitting my arm and laughing, and I think working on a poo. :)
It's official. My baby girl is wearing 6-9 month...
She’ll be 6 months old on Monday though, so I guess she’s right on track.
Eating a late night snack of Nutella on whole...
My hubby-to-be should be home soon. Time for bed....
Managed to get most of the stains out of those clothes, using stain remover/detergent/Dawn (yes, the dish soap stuff - it works really well for stain removal!) - I think I’m going to donate some of it though.
I start college on Monday.
Can anyone tell me how to make my own cloth...
Buying "gently used" clothes
So today I bought used baby clothes from two different mothers. The first gave me a BUNCH of clothes for $20, plus a Jumparoo thing for another $20. She looked kind of sketchy and I didn’t check the clothes before I got home. When I pulled them out I realized almost everything was stained and it all smelled horribly of smoke. I mean like the smoke smell was making me cough it was so bad....
Now I'm getting guilt trips from my family for...
Really? I’ll regret this one day? I’ll regret starting my life with my little family? Why can’t people be happy for me, that I’m doing what I think is right for myself and my daughter? How can they think it’s so wrong that I wanted her to live with both her parents?! Kinda upset.
Am I the only one
Whose baby loves it when you use that nose sucker thing? Everytime I go to get a boogie out of her nose, Sophia starts giggling and smiling. She LOVES it. The first time she ever laughed when she was 7 weeks old and I was getting a boogie out.
Attempting to get Sophie to sleep for the second...
Poor baby is so tired, but she has such a hard time falling asleep. At least she can sleep in her crib now when we want her to. I still love co-sleeping, don’t get me wrong, but it’s nice to have the bed to ourselves once in a while (or quite often here lately… bahaha ;). Oh and in case anyone is curious, I moved in with Bret at his parent’s house. We’re on the...
I love when Sophia wakes up from a nap and just...
I'm going to be starting a youtube with videos...
Subscribe for all the latest updates - MsMegg22 is my youtube username. :) I probably won’t have any videos up for a week or two because I’m waiting until I get my new laptop with an awesome webcam/mic. :)
You might remember me, my name’s Megan and my old blog was megg22.tumblr. I’m 18 and I have a 5 month old named Sophia. :)
