Earlier this week, I posted this on Twitter:
Previous three weeks: no swaddle, up 10 times a night. Last two nights: swaddle, slept thru night. Dr. says no swaddling. SOB.
Oh, um, I just realized this looks bad! I meant sob, like crying … not for what it might stand for. Oops!!
I seriously cried over it, and then got lots of great advice to ignore the doctor, do what we needed to do for my family, etc. Which I absolutely intended to do once I went to Babies R Us and bought the bigger-sized SwaddleMes. But since I didn’t have enough energy to go to BRU after a CVS run that night, I decided to try her without the swaddler.
For the last three nights, she’s slept fine through the night without it.
Jessie, this is your life. It’s weird.
Hi, welcome to Vanderbilt Wife! If you’re visiting for the Ultimate Blog Party, I’m so glad you’ve stopped by my little blue home here. Since I’m going to one of the “In Real Life” blog parties, I thought I should join in on the fun on the Web and write a post!
I am 26, recently had my first baby, and work full-time as an editor for a Christian publisher. This blog is where I write about struggling to keep up my house, be a good wife and mom, and not lose my mind. I write some about God and my thoughts about Him and His love. I’ve also been venturing into the forays of budgeting lately–I am sure we can all use to cut back a little in the present economy! As we’ve been faced with an $800 daycare bill each month, I’ve been forced to cut corners in other places, and actually find that I really like couponing and trying to keep my grocery budget to $40.
I hope you’ll go ahead and subscribe to my blog if you think these are interesting topics! You can always unsubscribe if you find me terribly boring later. 🙂
I can’t wait for tomorrow to surf around and find some great new blogs now that I understand what this Blog Party thingy is about! Again, welcome, leave me a comment to just say, “hi,” and if you’re a regular reader…I’ll be back tomorrow with some new nonsense.
If I were to win a prize, here are my top three picks!
I really, really, REALLY want an Ergo baby carrier (#7) so I can tote Libbie around backpack-style (eventually)!
Kind of random, but my third most-wanted would actually be the goat’s milk soap (#20). My hands are so dry because of the constant hand washing, laundry, washing bottles, washing pump parts…I’m interested if it would help! And the scents sound lovely: citrus basil, peach, pink grapefruit…mmm!
I certainly wouldn’t mind winning most any prize, but other top picks for me would be 21, 22, 35, 49, 52, 58, 68, 77, 88, 89, 99, 106. Pretty much anything I could go shopping with or would be useful to have/fun to have for my nearly 5-month-old!
