We're at that awkward "smile" phase

Our Mondays (and Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Thursdays and Fridays)

Here's what our house looks like at any given time. 


GMac taking his morning nap in the baby carrier. Starbucks after long nights or just because.


Monkey watching Veggie Tales (we are quickly working our way through church's collection having exhausted all of Netflix's collection).  She likes Starbucks too. Hot cocoas with a straw are her drink of choice. Jammies laying on the ground right where we got dressed along with the clean clothes that need hung up. Her toys are currently kept under the front window as the new layout is a bit more difficult for toy storage. Various toys are thrown about after being played with for 2.4 minutes.

GMac: One Month

I've got a little over an hour to post a one month update so now's as good of time as any to grab the one month onesie and take a photo. 


One Month
Weight: 10 lbs. 2 oz. (50%)
Height: 22 inches (50%)

This little guy loves to eat (as evidenced by the onesie that's laying on him because it doesn't fit) and hates dirty diapers so we're feeding and changing all the time. Quite the opposite of his sister who could skip meals if we let her and doesn't like her diaper changed. 

GMac is also a fan of being held (yay for the baby carrier!) and loves his mobile in his swing and pack-and-play. He also loves his big sister who loves him back twice as much. 

I'll be back tomorrow with his two month photo ;)

I've been waiting for this day all week.

Ahh. Friday. I've been waiting for you. 

We've sort of had a long week around here. C's had a long week at the office. Monkey started the week with a temperature and has ended it by making up for starting it with a temperature (combined that with just being a two year old). And last night we restarted "Operation Get GMac to Sleep in his Cradle".  (Yes, I know, "don't start a sentence with 'and'.") He did fairly well, as in, he did sleep in it and didn't scream his head off. It'll take a few more sleepless-er nights. 

He's lucky he's so cute. 


Tonight is Mardi Gras at Rhapsody in Nelsonville. Yum-o. I'll be helping myself to a glass of wine or a hurricane (you get to keep the glass!). 

Money's on her way to play at Aha! or as she calls it "Ha-Ha!" So I should probably get off my butt and straighten up so she can unstraighten when she gets home.

Happy Friday!

Scandal, I'm about to quit you.

It's so nice to be able to sit on the couch with a baby on my chest while watching Scandal and blogging.  Speaking of Scandal, I'm about done. 

But I've found a show to replace it. Fixer Upper. I realize it is nothing like Scandal, but I love it. I want to move to Waco so we can buy a house and have it flipped. But Waco is probably really hot and while I'd like to be somewhere hot right now, I bet Waco is too hot in the summers. Also, I'm not sure how I feel about Texas as a whole. 

In other news, GMac has taken the same eating route as Monkey and has decided that milk in a bottle is better than milk straight from Mommy. So, guess what I'm doing again.... Yeah. 

I'm making a pasta dish tonight that we usually eat in summer. It's like summer in our house. Except for the fact that is freezing outside. 

And that Monkey is sick with a fever. The fever seems to zap her energy as seen here:


but then give her enough energy to reenact the first 20 minutes of Frozen as seen here: 


The diapers serve as the ice blocks. The pipe is her ice pick and the starfish (excuse me, monster) towel is her Elsa cape. It's hard to tell which character she plays at any given time because she plays them all. 

She's currently working on sleeping off the fever and I've only got one bottle prepared in the fridge (GMac does not miss a meal...or any in between) so I best be off washing bottles.

GMac (in pictures)








Had a baby. It's a boy.

A post? Crazy...

(I'm doing this from my phone because my computer isn't charged...hasn't been for 7+ weeks and I heard that the new blogger app is better.)

Anyway. I have to do the obligatory "had the baby" post because it'd be odd to just start posting pictures. 

Baby Graeme is here. Arrived rather quickly January 1st about 30 minutes after we got got to the hospital. 

It wouldn't have been so quickly had I been paying attention to the signs of labor. 

But here he is...
