Is it really only Wednesday??

It's been a long week already....bullet points it is.

*  Emily had her 6 month appointment yesterday.  Girlfriend is big and healthy, so I'm a happy mama.  She weighs 20lbs 13oz (holy), 29 in long (off the charts), head circumference of 44 cm (totally normal).  Shots are the devil, you'd think in today's day and age they could figure out how to make them all oral instead of stabbing my baby in the leg 3 times.

paper on exam tables...best toy ever.

*  Anyone else watching the Bachelorette??  I can't quit, it's a problem.  The first episode is always the worst. I feel so uncomfortable when they interview all these men (with shirts off, sitting somewhere pondering life, etc.) and when they all meet her for the first time- they say the dumbest things...party DJ guy, magic slipper guy, huge egg guy- are you serious??  Why do they think these are good ideas?

*  We bought Merlin's Magic Sleep Suit (thanks to Shannon!) and that thing is a MIRACLE.  Emily has pretty much slept through the night since we got it (knock on wood, right now).  Only problem is, I got the biggest size- which is supposed to be for babies ages 6-9 months up to 21 pounds....um, Emily is almost 21 pounds and I will cry when she grows out of this thing.  Anyone super handy with a sewing machine that wants to try to re-create this magic suit??

how cute is this??

*  I got to see one of my blogger besties, Danielle, last Friday.  I met her amazing baby girl and we had a great time catching up and gossiping.  I think I said "I don't remember Emily being this small!" about 500 times. We will get out to see you and Carlia this summer- I swear!!


Emily did not want to cooperate

*  We have been spending lots of time outside and it makes Emily so calm and happy.  We just throw down a blanket, grab some toys and she is good to go for a couple of hours. Thank God for nice weather.

  1. I would take tat sleep suit and see if a seemstress can let it out a little for you, or alter it in some way so that it will still work.

  2. Oh my gosh... How cute is that sleep suit!!! I want one! Did you go from the swaddle to that? Alidia has just started going unswaddled most nights now but she doesn't sleep nearly as well so I am not sure what to do... a magic suit may be the answer! :) Also, is Bachelorette on right now?! I'm glad I didn't know or I may get hooked too! ;)

    1. Emily didn't want to be swaddled after 1 month, so we have been fighting interrupted sleep since then pretty much. It works great, I highly recommend it! And yes, bachelorette just started- you have to watch, you know you want to!

  3. Haha, we went to the doctor yesterday too and Chloe TORE UP the paper on the table!! She made such a mess and it was hard to hear the doctor over her ripping...nice. :) You have yourself one big healthy girl! I love that sleep suit, oh my gosh! I'm hooked on The Bachelorette too, I just hope it's a good season and she has chemistry with some of the guys. Last season of The Bachelor I thought was awful (even though I watched every episode).

  5. WOW, Emily is growing like a weed! So glad she is healthy and her sleeping is better. I would totally invest in a seamstress to make the sleep suit bigger. Maybe you should just design your own line of sleep suits...make millions! Make them through adult sizes too because you never know who it might help :-)

    1. Is she bigger than Aiden? Please say no. LOL! I would have to re-learn how to sew first and that would probably be a disaster...

    2. I haven't had him weighed in forever...I should measure/weigh him today when he gets up from his nap. I'll let you know :-)

  6. Oh my word, she is too cute! Our daughter is due for a bunch of shots next month and I'm totally dreading it, even though she's going to be 4. I hate it more than she does, I think! : )

  8. I love that chunky baby! She is so flippin' adorable! Blakely nearly choked on the paper on the exam table when we went...all of the sudden she had the whole roll of paper in her mouth :/

    Lord...that sleep suit is amazingly cute...I am SO glad it is working! Props to Shannon!

    Oh and shots suck balls...

  9. Jack hates the paper on the doc office table. It makes him cry to sit on it. Even when I try to crinkle it and laugh and make it funny, he still freaks out and has this face that says 'pick me up pick me up!!!! pleeeeaaassseee!!!' and he wimpers. It is sad.
    I am thinking a picnic at the park tonight for dinner sounds just lovely. That's what I will be doing.

  10. oh no Poor Jack :( as if going to the Dr isn't torture enough. Picnic = fab idea.

  11. Emily's growing so fast! That's awesome! I hate shots. We did it today and they gave Mira the oral stuff after the shots so I couldn't even comfort her properly. Grrr.
