He:  >Still has the bump on his head from his vacuum-assisted birth attempt. I’m wondering if it’ll ever go away at this point. >Was in the 95th percentile for weight at his last checkup. >Dropped a bottle per day in favor of baby food. >Is eating mostly jarred baby food, when he eats solids, since we had a bunch given to us and that’s what they have at daycare. >Has no teeth, and doesn’t seem to be actively teething yet. >Is in an awkward stage for bathing where he doesn’t fit his infant tub but he’s not stable enough to go in the big tub with Meredith. >Still sucks his thumb often, and likes to have something else in his…

link roundup / 9

August 16, 2014

Today I’m sharing some stuff I found around the internet. Enjoy! >I’ve read a lot of lists with iPhone tips, but I still learned several new things from this one. >I’m a big fan of Book Riot, and they recently started a YouTube channel which I am really enjoying. I especially love the videos by Amanda – check out this one about how to read multiple books at once. >What it means to be raw with God. >Do you collect books, so that your shelves are like a time capsule of memories? Or do you want them to reflect who you are today? (Good thoughts here.) >Interested in frugal natural living? You gotta check out Hello Natural. >Love this free…

Genius: Meredith has been in swim lessons the past two weeks. It’s every day at 6:15 p.m. I usually don’t make any plans on week days due to the stress factor so this has been kind of crazy for us. My genius, though, was to simply delegate the whole thing to David. That way I can nurse Liam and make dinner peacefully while they’re gone, we eat as soon as they get home, and then it’s bedtime. Easy. Fail: Weekend naps continue to be a sticking point for us. They never happen in an orderly or easy fashion and we routinely suffer the consequences. Last Sunday, Meredith started dozing off on the way home from church. She woke up when we arrived…

whole30 : one month later

August 14, 2014

It’s been about a month since I completed my first whole30. I thought it was a good time to check in and share what I’m eating + how I’m feeling nowadays. Whole30 was so good for me, and I got immediate results, but the goal was to change my life for good – so if I went right back to my old habits it wouldn’t have been worth it. So far, though, it definitely has been! This is what I am eating lately: Breakfast I have the same breakfast now that I did while on whole30. I fry or scramble five eggs (Meredith usually eats about two of them, but if she doesn’t I eat them all – I love…

liam’s stocking

August 13, 2014

Liam’s stocking is done! This kit is called Snowman Games by Bucilla. None of their kits are particularly “simple” but this one seemed to be much easier and faster than the one I made for my niece last year. I know part of that is because I have some experience now, but I also chose this one partly because it had less intricate parts. So if you are a beginner and you want to try it out, I do recommend this one! Next on my crafting plan is finishing the quilt I’ve been working on forever, and then I’m moving on to this advent calendar! 0 Like
