The daily guess work of a baby:

Food, Bottle, clothing, toys, naps, what to decide....

Food: Lily Anne is NOT a huge I struggle everyday on what to feed her. We are finally up to 3 meals a day. One night she loves a meal and I think wow we have made a break through only to findout at the next mealtime she hates everything. is so fustrating.

Bottle: How many per day or how many ounces? This is a joke in our house lately (about as much as food)... She ate for weeks 4 botttles at 8ozs. Well, now she is changing yet again on me. Saturday - 3 bottles (during the day) at 5 ozs, then bed time the full 8oz. Sunday - 2 bottles maybe 6 ozs? the bed time the full 8 oz again. Thus wasting some expensive formula...which is not my worry here. I noticed on her daily sheet at daycare...generally gets 2 bottles...but yesterday it was 1 1/2 bottles. um..okay now I am guessing here in this category too?

Clothing: Okay...this is a big decision...she has so many clothes (the flipside of a having a girl) to choose from each day. It is like picking something for me to wear. She is super cute in everything. Why must clothing makers have way more cute girly stuff? Then to top the decision process it is hairbows and shoes. Although I am still managing to get her dressed everyday.

Toys: This is a new category. She loves everything about it. I have found lots to get her involved but her ultimate toy is our dog Zoe. She loves her...she crawls after her laughing. Zoe on the other HATES Lily Anne chasing her. But I have 1 wicker cube of toys, a bucket of rings, and basket of rattles and pop-links. All three will be emptied out by the end of playtime. As long as she grab it, put it in her mouth, lights up, or makes funny noises it is a winner.

Naps: She is a good napper most days at home unless we are not feeling well. At daycare, she is so nosey in what is going on that naps at all over the place. I am not complaining. But I never know until the moment comes...

Time flies in our household. I am completely amazed how we have made it with Lily Anne the past 7 months. She is getting so big and such lively one. Last night was a great example...We got home unloaded the car. I put her in the middle of the living room with lots of toys, take off my jacket and sit down to play with her. Only to watch her crawl off away from me. What??? Do I stink? Am I no fun? How and when did she become independent?


  1. Love the new look!

    Get used to your child changing up their routine, likes and dislikes just as soon as you get used to what works for you! I guess it's just their way of always keeping you on your toes!

  2. My baby is only 7 weeks old today, and it's so crazy how things change so quickly from one day to the other. One day he is happy and content...the next he is fussy and mad. It's such guess work! And he is a terrible napper, so he gets really tired, and then he gets fussy! :)
