Week-In-A-Post #2

It's that time again! I'm pretty amazed with myself for doing this TWICE in a row! I usually have a hard time committing when it comes to my blog.

--- Littlest will be ONE YEAR OLD next month!!! I can not even believe that. This last year has just flown by. He has been such a blessing to this family. He is the apple of our eyes. He completes us. He had us at "hello." I think you get the point.

He's still not eating very much food. *sigh* And so far he's shown an allergy to dairy and possibly wheat . On the bright side, he's nursing like a champ! All. night. long. *yawn*

He's been "talking" for a few months now and I was telling Mr. N the other day that he sounds German or Russian. His chattering is very consonant heavy; Bft! Bopt! Dipt! Bch! It's adorable. See for yourself: (Also notice, he's acquired the nickname, "Bubby." I'm also trying to get him to say "Mama" to which he usually replies, "dadadadada." Hmph.)

--- I have BANNED Frozen songs from being sung in our house. BANNED. After months of "Let It Go" being sung day after day after long shove-an-ice-pick-in-my-eye day, I had to put a stop to it. It's not even funny, people. Now I make the girls pay me if they even so much as hum a Frozen tune. True story.

Incidentally, I had no idea how many times we said the phrase "let it (her, him, them) go" in conversation.

---I really want to make my own diaper bag and am hope to have time to do that soon. BAHAHAHA! That was a good one.

The truth is, I could make the time if I really wanted to. It's just when evening comes around, when I'd most likely be able to get the bag done, I'm exhausted. I usually choose to sit and chat with Mr. N or read on my Kindle or stare blankly into space. You know, productive things like that. So it's not so much that I don't have time, I just don't make time.

I digress.

Here's the bag that I want to make. I really want a diaper bag that doesn't look like a diaper bag, but even more, I want one I can wash. Hopefully before Littlest turns 5 I can get it done.

That's it for this week. If you'd like to join in, let me know. I'd love to read what you're up to!


  1. The video is adorable but that picture of your little guy is out of this world cute. Peench those little cheeks cute.

  2. Catie,
    I think it is so cool that you are making your own diaper bag! I just use an old backpack that I had laying around...it's good since I usually need my hands free for carrying my littlest, who incidentally will be one next week as well, on the 5th. What about yours? Also, wondering, do you use a baby carrier at all for your little guy? Catherine in KS

  3. Linda! I know! Love those cheeks! And the other ones! HA!

    Hi Catherine! :) Well, I'm not actually making the bag yet.. don't hold your breath! LOL A backpack is a great idea. I should keep my eyes open for one at the thrift store.

    My little guy will be 1 on the 15th. :) He was actually born on his due date!

    I do use a carrier sometimes nowadays. When he was first born I used the Kangaroo Korner wrap ALL THE TIME. Here's a picture: (http://solongsleep.blogspot.com/2013/11/update.html) I loved it and so did he! I could still take care of the girls and he could sleep. :) I'd love to see pics of your little guy, but understand if you want to remain anonymous. ;) My email is sillyrednewby AT gmail.

    I only use one now (a HotSling) if the stroller isn't an option. He's HEAVY! What about you?


Thanks for taking the time to comment. It's encouraging!
