Random Ramblings

This post has no cohesive train of thought....much like its author.

1. GAAAH Tory. Just when I thought I had moved past my obsession with you, I saw this.

(Backstage @ Tory Burch)

So good.


Hold the phone. Peep Smores? Yes please.


Why can't I look like this 24/7? Probably because I research Peep Smores.

4.  I saw this on Friday on Facebook.

Obnoxious? It is not just me right? Okay, I might be bitter considering this was me...

5. And precious, baby Pumpkin Head

(You were totally worth the 40 lbs!)

Woody- Seven Months

These pictures all pretty much look the same, but I love them. He looks so sweet!

Woody Facts

  • I tried weighing him on our home scale several times, I never got a weight for him that I thought might be accurate. I say over 20, under 25 lbs.
  • Diaper Size: 3
  • Clothing: 9-12 month. 
  • Sleep: So this was going to be the month I was going to "train" Woody not to wake up during the night. News Flash: Baby didn't get the training memo. Some nights he will do so great and sleep until 5:00 am, and then some nights he wakes up 2-3 times during the night. Two things that have somewhat been working is feeding him cereal with his dinner (Thanks Mom!) and the "Minute Method." When he wakes up crying, I let him cry for 5 minutes, go in, rub his back for a minute and leave. If he continues to cry/wakes up later in the night crying, he gets 10 minutes before I come in. The cycle continues in five minute increments.  However, sometimes, we get to the twenty minute mark and I throw in the towel and feed him. Any other suggestions?
  • He sometimes takes a morning nap, but it is usually only 20-45 minutes. He tends to fall asleep in the                 car when I pick him up at 11:30 and will sleep until 2:00-2:30. Then usually an hour snooze somewhere around 4:30.
  • Eat: Woody is well into solids three times a day. For breakfast, he usually gets a fruit or veggie he really likes (since I am not the one to give it to him.) He eats lunch around 2 (when he gets up from his nap) and he gets a vegetable and some yogurt to help swallow it down. For dinner, he gets a fruit or vegetable (whichever he didn't have for breakfast) and rice cereal. He has had rice cereal, yogurt, sweet potatoes, avocado  peas, carrots, squash, green beans, apples, bananas, and pears. He likes everything except carrots and peas. His favorite is yogurt and all the fruits. Another one of his favorite treats is a frozen banana in one of these things. I am still nursing, but only every 4-5 hours because of the solids. I am not going to lie, with Woody's new teeth, this isn't as enjoyable as it once was. 
  • That's right, he has two teeth on the bottom! Painful (for him and me), but cute!
  • He is getting more and more hair. Some days it looks very blond, and others a light brown. His eyes are still blue.
  • He prefers to sit up, and if you put him down, he will push up to the sitting position.
  • Woody can almost pull up to his feet in the crib. We lowered the crib all the way. Sad day for Momma.
  • He scoots on his belly to crawl most of the time, but if he really wants something, he will actually use his knees to help him crawl. He has also started pushing up to his feet to try to bear crawl, but hasn't made any movements in this position.
  • Woody likes to crawl to places he is not supposed to go. His favorite? Under the new daybed in his room. He will crawl all the way to the wall (quickly might I add) and then cries when he can't get out. This means I have to scoot myself under there to pull him out. He finds this game hysterical.
  • Maridelle, Husband's grandmother, gave us her old highchair to use. Woody likes sitting at the table in it (sideways.)
  • He loves to be in his stroller. I love it too, because shopping/eating out with him is a breeze. (I know my days are numbered.) Woody has frequented many of Atlanta's restaurants/shopping malls and been the perfect gentleman.
  • He has a new facial expression if he is really interested in something. He will cock his head to the side...until he is uninterested. 
  • Not a fan of the dark....or having his nose wiped. 
  • Belly laughs over Lucy, throwing things up in the air, scaring him, or pretending to fall

Happy Valentine's Day!

My favorite school holiday!!! Even better this year since I leave halfway through the day (before the kids are exploding with sugar attacks.)

I am thankful that Woody is not in preschool/school- have you seen these Valentines people are making for their children!? Curse you Pinterest! (And crafty Sister.) As my friend Jenna said, "Sure you can talk a big game that you are just going to buy the cheap, cardboard drugstore kind, but do you really want your kid to come home and say, 'Geez thanks Mom, but Billy's were 3D and blew fire?"

And, not only is it Valentine's, but it is this sleepy dreamer's 7 month birthday. So we are skipping the cheesy music and price fixed menus tonight to spend some quality time with him and going out tomorrow. (Thanks for babysitting Libby!!!)

Deal of the Day

WHAT!?! An actual post about something fashion related and not another Woody post?! Who am I?

Well, this post kinda relates back to Woody, but whatev.

Woody gets baptized next month, and I refuse to let him be the only one who gets a new dress.

In searching, I found this adorable number.

I know, right? The best part...

on sale for $49.95!!!

Anthropologie and I have a love/hate relationship (the word trendy librarian comes to mind), but I am obsessed with this dress. Too bad it isn't right for church, but that doesn't stop my major crush on it.

iPhone Dump

Sweet Potatoes? Approved.

Look at that grout! It is this stuff, and it will change your life.

Old picture from Thanksgiving
(Savanna, Hubs, Woody, Me)

Totally normal right?

Peas? Not impressed. Especially when the TV in on.

Home Haircut. Welcome to Motherhood.

Good Morning Pumpkin Head!

Say What!!?? Last Friday was very cold, so I told Brooks to dress Woody warmly. My husband has an aversion to taking clothes off of Woody, so he proceeded to put a too small t-shirt over him with some fashionable orange sweatpants. Woody was most upset.
