Can’t believe it has been almost a year since my last post. I just….don’t have the drive to blog anymore. The older oat gets I realize my part of this story is coming to a close and it is about him. I am not comfortable sharing as much.
We are all great- oat is growing like a crazy fool and about to be two.
He is beyond awesome and such a smart cookie. Other than him, life is about the same. Day in day out. HA
No concrete plans for #2. I am scared to be pregnant again, especially with a toddler. Tentatively next spring. IDK. I will know when it is right.
That said- I will probably be inactivating this blog soon. I am going to keep it around- just inactivate it. Or maybe take down Pictures. Not site yet.
Figured I would see if ANYONE WAS LEFT out there. Hahah
<3. I wish I had more voice- but it has seemed to of left me
Hi all. I am still alive.
Anyone out there?
Oat is a year old an his party was awesome. Curious George theme and he loves frosting and cupcakes. LOL
He is cruising, not walking yet. Developmentally right on track. He has a few words- mama, da(dad), ball, bye
He points at everything, tries to whistle, and loves to snuggle. He is such a good boy and I love him so much.
I wish I kept up with this blog better- but it is always on the “to do later” list.
Also- no. We have no plan to try for another anytime soon. LOL. Having another is in our plan- but the idea of another pregnancy makes me feel twitchy.
❤ to all!!!
Hi! I know I have not been blogging much lately and now I am flooding your inboxes with cloth diaper reviews. Sorry.
Things have been rough the last few days. Oat is teething, AND has mild viral illness with sinus drainage/ cough/ hoarseness/ etc. it has not been pretty around here. The sleepless nights, napping strikes, poor nursing, clingyness, etc sux. We went to the doc yesterday and he was 15.8 pounds!!! Holy crap!!!!
My dear husband works his arse off and is never here. Sigh. I promise to stop complaining in a second- I just miss my family. Sigh.
Oat is Rollin from his back all the way to his side. He almost gets his arm out of the way- so it won’t be long.
I can’t believe soon we shall be starting real food!!!! Where is the time going!!!!?!??
Hola. Yes. I suck. That is well established here in this Corner of my web. LOL.
Oat just turned FIVE MONTHS!!! I can’t hardly believe it!!!
What is new with me. Currently oat is sick- congested, coughing, low grade temp. Par for the course I am equal parts worried sick(momma Bumpy) And know it isn’t a big deal(RN in me). It sucks.
He is growing like a weed!!!!!! Probably around 15 pounds. NOw!!! (I am typing on my iPhone and I suck at it). He is such a joy. He is really getting control over his hands and grabbing stuff. He loves a “mommy” necklace I got that has child friendly beads on it. He doesn’t like to sit down- loves to stand!! We recently put up a jumper thing in the door and he loves it!!
Can’t believe we soon will be starting real food. HOLD ME!!!!
We are figuring out this whole parenting thing…it is quite the adventure.
Oat is now 4 months old and wow. I HAVE A FOUR MONTH OLD. Seems everyday he grows and is more away of his surroundings. He is such a cutie pie if I do say so myself. 🙂
He is pretty easy to read still, sleepy cry kinda sounds like “IEIEIEIEIEIE”, and he has started rubbing his eyes. Still hates tummy time, but is doing better.
Cloth diapering is going great- I have taken a ton of pictures and have all th best intentions of doing a blog post. We shall see what happens. I so far SUCK at blogging post baby. It seems that whenever he goes down for a nap I am running around in circles trying to get stuff done! Laundry, return phone calls, upkeep of house, etc. etc.
Welp baby is crying. might as well hit publish.
I am so insanely sorry that I don’t post more. I HATE that I am losing touch, and I am missing out on my catharsis and word vomit.
I don’t understand how all the other new mom’s do it, and have time to write all these posts. I can’t seem to get ANYTHING done all the way.
We are doing good. Oat is 14 weeks old today and is changing every time he goes to sleep. He has turned into a CHUNK!!!!! He was 12#8oz with a cloth diaper on at the doctor last week…I figure he was 12#4oz…since I weighed the dipe before we went. LOL. He is already caught up with regular FULL TERM babes born on his b’day as far as his weight goes on the growth curve. He is still behind in the length and head…but I am not worried. Dude is an eating machine!
Breast feeding is going well. I just never really get a chance to pump. My deep freezer had a glitch and lost about 30 bottles of NICU milk. blah. I was NOT happy about that, but I Have enough now saved up that I could go out of town, or have an emergency or something.
Cloth diapering is going well also. I haven’t used a disposable in don’t know when. I think the beginning of August. I don’t even have any here in the house that will fit him actually. I have been using coconut oil on his bum with each diaper change and so far no rash either.
He is smiling, little laughs, batting at stuff, cooing and starting to squeal a little. It is amazing. He LOVES to watch Daddy read him a story.
He HATES tummy time still. I have a video I have got to upload…or maybe not. CPS might come and get me. You would think I was torturing him. He cries as hard during tummy time as he did during his circumcision. Harder actually. He actually cries HARDER with tummy time. I muscle through it, but OMG THE SCREAMING!
I got my hair cut today and put a pink/black feather put in. It looks ridiculous, but apparently it is ‘all the rage’ right now. Plus I made a donation to a local breast cancer foundation for it.
I need to go to bed. 🙂
❤ you all, and thank you for sticking with me. I swear I am not gone forever. I am on the Twitters all the time! 🙂
