move over, there's a new baby in the house

Oh my goodness!!!!!! I finally, finally have a new computer! Now, I love my husband, but the used laptop he bought me, nearly four years ago, was just not cuttin' it anymore! My new baby arrived yesterday, and his name is Mac. I love him so very much. He's small, sleek, FAST, and cute.
Welcome to the family!

he strikes again

So the boogie man woke Natalie around 5:45 this morning (he's been doing that a lot lately), and I promptly went in to get her back to sleep. I noticed that her room was just a few degrees above the arctic, so once she was asleep, I brought her back to bed with me (something that hasn't been done since she was two weeks old). Now, why is it that a baby, that is often mistaken for 4 or 5 months when she's really almost 8, can take up as much space as she was taking up? I regret that I didn't take a picture of my sprawled eagle, but you're good at imagination, I'm sure of it. Anyway, once I was pushed to the floor, I did manage to get back to sleep and Natalie got to enjoy the warm comfort of my toasty bed. Lucky baby.

monday morning reminder of why we love having kids

I was driving to the gym and I think at some point that I heard Natalie cough, but she's had a cough for a I didn't really even think about it and then I noticed a minute or two later that I could really smell bananas. Well I had fed her bananas right before we left so I thought she might have just spit up at little bit....well, a little bit would not describe even a tenth of what she did. I got out of the car and went to go get her out and she was COVERED!!!! Jacket, pants were soaked with bananas, then when I picked her up to take them off....there was a huge puddle underneath her that was soaking through where the strap comes up. I soaked up 3 burp clothes (because yes, I carry 3 with me everywhere I go) and there was still more covering the seat and her. I thought about just going in anyway and working out but at that point she was in just a onesie, and even that was a little bit damp. So I loaded her back in the banana seat and went home. I wanted so badly to be able to take a picture, or have some kind of documentation of the debacle....but I know you all can picture it. I've been waiting for something like that, or a complete poop up the back blow out so that I could really feel like a mom...and today was the day.

good morning

This is what we see now every morning, and after every nap.  She loves to let go and slam back onto the mattress too.  If we don't drop it down soon, she's bound to stand and go right over.  BABY OVERBOARD!
