Here’s the difficulty with the blogging situation: I don’t have the same free time I once had, so I often have to either blog all in one sitting, or blog about things that seem to have happened a long time ago, by the time I sit down and blog about them. But, I guess that is fine because this is not a twitter feed and this is my blog after all. Perhaps, I will add some dates to events, so that I can be impressed that I did THAT so soon after having a baby. ; )
Anyway, a few items that are too small to be their own post, so they will be all together in a post of small things.
~I have discovered the 5 S’s for baby pickle. My wise friend Alison visited me and imparted this wisdom that she learned from Happiest Baby on the Block: Swaddle, Side, Sway, Suck, Sound. She will only take the binky in this situation and her sound of choice is waves on the beach, that I got from a free white noise app on my iphone. I hold it RIGHT next to her ear and it is magic.
~We use the word SITUATION a lot to describe…well…situations. Most often a Situation is something that occurs in the nether regions…and it’s most likely a Pickle Poop Situation. Like, during the most reverend part of our church services last week, she had a situation, and right after her Dad’s work shower began–a situation. The Blow-outs have begun.
~Phoebe has her first mother’s helper babysitting job today. She is so big.
~My brother is visiting my Mom right now and my Sister is arriving soon and I am feeling very sad that I am not there. Boo. I group-skyped with my family last weekend. It was really fun, but a bit frustrating for the delays and audio problems here and there.
~I have a bananas idea for our Christmas Card this year, but it’s going to take some major creativity to ACTUALLY pull it off. I am still stumped about Halloween–that is a SITUATION
~Pickle got called a boy for the first time today. Bummer.
~She’s grown out of her first set of onesies…which makes me faced with the decision: To keep or not to keep? She is SO TALL–her legs pop out of her nightgowns and full-length clothes look like capris.
That’s about all for now. I have a lot of POSTING to do!!! I am really going to try as soon as I finish all of my chores, but it’s really up to the magic of the white noise app on the iphone.
