Being a Mom { 4 }

I have finally started the cloth diapers. I am however still using the disposables at night for now. Claire’s bum was so small she didn’t fit in them and once her bum was big enough her legs were too skinny and the poo leaked out the sides. : P Well now she has gained enough weight to fit into them and not leak. However that doesn’t include some of my mistakes leading to leaks.

I have found she is a heavy wetter so I have to put in two inserts to keep it from going through the shell, and once I didn’t make it tight enough and it came out the side. Yuck! Other than a few mishaps everything has been going good, it isn’t really as hard as I thought it would be, it is just more of a learning curve. Even Josh has decided that it isn’t as bad as he thought it would be, and that is a Lot coming from him! Though it isn’t much different than using disposables, just more to pack in the diaper bag and a bit more laundry, which I have a lot of that anyways. lol Besides, look at how cute her little buns are! 

She is now 11lbs and 23.5 inches long. She is leaning that she can put her hands and other things into her mouth (joy!). Claire has also found that she loves to talk, sometimes she just lays there a babbles on to herself, though she really likes talking with Josh and I. : )

The Fair { 2014 }

I was going through my pictures and realized I never shared the few pictures that I took. I didn’t take very many at all and was annoyed once I put them on my computer.

What I Wore { 9.17.2014 }

w021w020w018w019

Yay! Fall is on its way! Which means boots, sweaters and scarves. : ) Not to mention tea, hot chocolate, long books, crocheting and cuddling. It is still pretty warm here but our house stays really cold so I have been wearing some sweaters in the morning. I also had my first cup of hot tea that I have had since spring! Anyone else excited for fall?

Being a Mom { 3 }

Anyone have a really gross baby story? Mine would be from a few nights ago. Claire was just about done eating when she started fussing, so I lifted her up to burp her when all of a sudden she vomits ALL over the place. The couch, all the pillows, my Ipad and she was soaked! The best part was though that it was so projectile that it went all over me, my chest, hair and IN MY MOUTH! : P The taste of vomit is always the worst, but I do not think it as bad as the taste of your child’s vomit in your mouth! Yuck, Yuck, YUCK! :/

 

We have also had a couple of diaper leaks, though that isn’t as bad. Once was when I tried to move Claire to the cloth diapers, however her legs were too skinny that she leaked past the legs. Joy… Back to the disposables we went, I can’t wait till she fills in more so I can use the cloth.

 

Sleep has been a hit and miss for her, we went a week of sleeping through the night, anywhere from 8 to 11 hours. This week though she has been waking up at about 4:30, and she is sitting in her crib talking away! Then she eventually gets upset and won’t calm down till she eats. Her naps are pretty good, she takes one in the morning for three hours and another in the late afternoon for two to three hours. Then when she is awake she is a pretty happy girl.

 

She is currently learning all the noises and sounds she can make, which makes for a chatty baby in the morning. She is also starting to grab and hold things, and once she has a grip on something good luck getting it back! She is starting to like toys too, she has a rattle bear and her squeaky giraffe (Sophie) that she loves, she smiles and gets all excited when we play with her.  

 

And now for pictures! I had about forty more than these, but I decided not to bombard everyone! ; ) So I narrowed it down to some of my favorites. (especially the very first and the last one!)

What I Wore { 9.10.2014 }

Hey guys, for todays what I wore I am sharing a dress that I got from eShakti. Everything they have is really cute, I especially liked this chambray dress, I thought it was really fun and flirty. The skirt is exactly how I like it and the little bows are just the perfect detail.  I was super happy with it, the fabric is comfy and it is very well made. I haven’t worn it out of the house yet, Thanks to baby. ;) but I plan to wear this on our next dinner date!

The little self is an old orange crate I found at an antique store, it was a great price too! The vintage mobile was my mom’s as a baby, she then used it for me and now for Claire. : )

The wood shelves are ones that Josh made out of an old pallet.

This super cute whale is one that my friend Tasha made for Claire.

I made both of the pillows, there is a link for the puppy pillow in THIS post. I also did all of the wall art except for the bear and the little picture of my old horse as a foal.

I love the way it turned out! The only thing that will sadly be changing is the tissue paper flowers. Josh is making me change them, because they are a “spider trap”. Which was decided after a certain night I was feeding. I was sitting on my Ipad while Claire ate, when the tissue paper started to lightly rustle. : / Tissue paper doesn't make noise on its own, well a spider the size of a fifty cent piece popped out of the corner!  I shouted to Josh, who was sound asleep, to come kill it (he is deathly afraid of spiders).  He then informed me that the flowers could not stay. : P So I am going to do a tissue cloud, with rain drops, that hangs down. I thought that would be cute with the mobile, being as it looks like an umbrella.
Oh, and the chair will eventually be changed to a rocking chair, this one is from the living room.
