I Love These Girls!

Nothing beats getting together with great friends. My awesome friend Melissa came to visit from Chicago this week. It was so great to see her! It was also a little bitter sweet, to know that she had to go home and soon Kristi will move away.

Solids Anyone?

Millie has taken to eating solids like a fly to heap of trash, she loves it, and we love watching (and taking pictures) of her trying to eat. It’s so fun.

Halleluiah-It has arrived


Last Monday, 8 days ago, that’s 192 hours ago I broken heartily shipped my broken baby video monitor back to Summer Infants for a replacement.

Life hasn’t been the same since… Ok fine, maybe I’m being a little dramatic. The week really did go better than I had anticipated, but I must say I do love my infant video monitor. Why?

Let me tell you why.

It has to be my most favorite frivolous piece of baby equipment I own. I love that with the click of  a button I can see how my baby is doing. Whether it’s to check to see if she has fallen asleep yet, or why she has woken, or my favorite; to watch her slumber peacefully it is very convenient. Probably the reason I love it the most is due to my own laziness. It means with a flick of a button I can assess my daughter’s situation rather than having to get up (especially when I’m in bed) to check on her. I love that. Second, it alerts my otherwise fully occupied husband that the baby needs to be tended to. Third, I can comfortably go out in my garden and work without wondering if she is inside crying. Did I mention that I love my video monitor. O how I have missed thee, welcome home.

Proud Mom

Because I can’t help myself, I am now going to inundate you with pictures of my beautiful daughter. …And for those of you who don’t know, opening your mouth as wide as you can counts as a smile.



I can’t believe she will be 6 months next weeks!
