first it was the boyfriend who according to him was on deaths door. We tried everything to prevent it from spreading but the sick bastard ending up giving my little one a cold. Cranky toddler and minimal sleep has been my life for the last 3 days.
I was and still am dealing with a crazy, cranky teething baby- come on teeth pop out already. She has been teething for the last three months! Can you say drooly McDrool. Well the last couple of says have shown some promise and I’m prettt sure her first tooth will come out this weekend.
She has also turned 6 months old today. HOLY SHIT. why does it go so first. Alex joked she’ll be off to college in no time. Whyyy is he so mean lol. The good thing,we can finally begin BLW (baby led weaning) which is essentially giving baby the foods you eat no purees.
So for the last week or so I’ve been emerged in research and recipe collecting. We kinda started last night with some strawberries, a banana, cantaloupe and a piece of french toast. She loved it all and ate everything we gave her.
Another thing i was busy with during my absence was looking for a new car. We had a 300 (lease) but with no space and going over miles we needed a new vehicle. One that would be good family wise and one that can be a good vacation car to get us to NY in Aug.
I talked the boyfriend into getting a minivan! We got the new Pacifica and its absolutely awesome. I can’t wait to go traveling with that badboy.
I’ll try not to disappear again.
Hope all is well with everyone and I will try to catch up with posts.
I have been in relaxation mode despite having a 4 month old.
I recently started binge watching Mad Men on Netflix. I have a lot of catching up to do, being that there is 7 seasons and I’m only on season 3. I’ve literally been watching it any chance I get, building up my DVR with my regular schedule sh
I’m reading again! I haven’t read a book in months, it was kinda sad since at one point i was reading 7-10 books a week.
I just started American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I wanted to start it a couple of months back but never got the chance. Loving it so far. I plan on getting Sandman by him and a few others. It is a challenging reading over a baby though, so at a few points i have read it out loud to her.. lets just say there are a lot of fucks in it. I was going to censor it when reading it to her but then decided against it lol.
I’m thinking about doubling up and reading another book too. I have a TBR pile that needs to be dented.
I’m kinda really enjoying getting me time so to speak even if it is with my daughter. I’m getting back to me.
I was holding the little monster sitting on the couch minding my own business when the baby daddy yells “OH MY GOD!!” while reaching for me. Out the corner of my eye I see a spider and i threw/let go of the baby. I also caught her within seconds realizing what I had done.
She just looked at me with this WTF face. Oops, my bad i really didn’t mean to do it but i freak out when there are spiders around.
I felt so bad but it is totally Alex’s fault for yelling like that. Do not yell at me if there is a spider just kill the fucking thing or i will flip.
Mother of the year award definitely goes to me.
Alex jokes that if anything dangerous were to really happen or some kind of trouble I would be the woman already running head of them.
I dont think he is wrong 😊
sigh, gotta keep a look out for those little beasts 🕷
My mini vacation is finally over. I guess you cant call it a vacation when you didn’t even go anywhere. Alex’s family had come and while it was nice to see people it was a little too loud for me and Grace. She was good most times and really cranky other times. Her bed time has been all fucked up too. I’m glad to be getting back into our normal schedule.
Easter was pretty good for us. Here are some of my favorite photos from that day.
Little one is teething hence the fingers in her mouth, she also found her dress to be delicious.
Hope nothing too crazy has happened while I was gone. =)
