And my brain...it dumps.

Guess who redid their blog design yet again?

Sigh.

I didn't really like the blacks and reds---those colors are so not me. And then? My brother took those awesome photos of us that I was totally dying to use in my header.

And--- I caved.

Thus the birthing (ha) of another new design.  So much more subtle. So much more me. Loving the colors. Feminine but not over the top. Photos of my little lady? Check!

The last few days---I cannot get my girl to eat more than a few bites of solids. Whats up with that?! She never was a big eater (meaning, she eats little bits not big quantities)--but, she literally looks at me like I have five heads when I give her spoonful of puree'ed carrots. She used to LOVE carrots. Whaaa? Kids are so weird sometimes.

Oh, and the drama. Like, I tried to give her this stage 2 mix. Something kind of gross---so I can't blame her. Maybe a meat/cheese combo, and girl literally will GAG....like, puke up anything that got down because she is NOT having it. She's started to gag (for drama, I'm telling you) at some of her favorites. Bananas...mangoes....all of it. Seriously...odd. Kids are so darn unpredictable. She used to love them. Oh wellza. We'll keep trying.

I made a mental pact with myself to get housework done (aka: clean whole house) by Tuesday. Well this week, that didn't happen. I have friends coming over tonight, so that blur you see out of the corner of your eye whizzing past you? Yea...her. That's me today.

This morning Emeline woke up about an hour and a half earlier than normal. My girl typically wakes up between 8:30-9:30 and I LOVE that. I cannot even fathom a child who wakes a 5am for the day. I'd die. I'd definitely be dead. Last night I didn't even crawl into my sheets until 12:30am, and then finally fall asleep after 1am. So I love my late riser. But this morning? She did not care one bit that I had a long night and didn't get to sleep till late. The nerve.

I cooked bacon this morning just because.

What is it with bacon? 

Oh, and thanks to Liz who kindly sent me a message telling me my banana bread recipe made awesome muffins. My butt told my hips to thank you.

I've also noticed a little jump in new friends stopping by to read. Care to say hi?

Happy Weekend!

    Love the new colors...the black really didn't seem like "you", but it did go with the cute pics of Eme!!

    I have been looking for a good Banana Bread recipe, so I am deff going to make this one for Christmas, I will let you know how it comes out!

  8. Love the new header! Grace has the same cute little cardi as Emeline and I might have to be a total copycat and have her wear it for our fam's pics this weekend- it looks adorable on your girl.

    P.S. My baby woke up at 5am today...kill me now. ;)

  11. Love your new design! And can I say, Jealous! My son sleeps till 7, but my daughter is a... 5-6am riser! Ugh! 8:30-9:30, I would absolutely love once in awhile!

    Good luck with cleaning. I have no motivation in that area either!

  12. I love your new design its precious! I totally understand mine babe wakes up at 7:00 - 7:30 and im still tired. Thanks for reminding me that i need to clean my house as well... :(

  13. Every week Connor decides to get up at a different time. Last week.. 6:30. This week.. 5:30. I sure as hell hope next week will not be 4:30! The food thing? She may be getting ready to pop some teeth. I have read countless time their appetite disappears when teeth begin to appear. Could that be it? Of course Connor kept chugging along the food train even though his bottom teeth are through.

  14. lol. Babies are so funny/ridiculous. Noah and I are night owls too. We wake up between 8:30 and 9:30 too.
    Good luck with the cleaning! That's probably what I should be doing right now instead of sitting here blogging/reading.

  15. yeah, that 6am riser? that would be my son. you know, my son that also doesn't nap. im reminding myself to be grateful that he's been sleeping through the night for months now- but no matter when he goes down: 8pm, 930pm, TWELVE THIRTY AM LIKE LAST NIGHT, he's always a 6am riser. did i say he doesnt take naps? dear lord. i'll sleep when i'm dead, i guess :)

    oh. and C started yams this morning. he was apathetic. i was like OMHGOD BIG BOY YOURE STARTING SOLIDS! LOVE THEM! GIMMIE FACES! SQUEAL! yeah. nothing. he pretty much justt old me that i wasn't shoveling it into his mouth fast enough.

    kids are silly. happy friday, lovie.

  17. Just wanted to tell you to not get too frustrated with the food issue. My little girl (10 mo.) went thru the same phase at that age and I thought she was going to NEVER eat "real" food. I just kept offering different things and if she'd eat it then great, if not, I wouldn't worry. Eventually, she started eating with no issues again! :) Hang in there, girls are just extra dramatic about things I think, lol.

  20. Loving the new colors and design...so pretty! I am glad none of my kids were early risers because I refused to get them up before 8 am. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I agree...this design seems to suit your personality better than the reds and blacks.

    Also...the 5am thing is TORTURE! We are usually in bed and asleep by 10pm!

  22. I'm a new follower and I LOVE reading your blog! Not sure how I found you, but I'm glad I did! ;)

  23. Keep trying. L STILL acts like that with food sometimes. We say his middle name should be Finicky because he SO is. The other day I picked him up from school and his teacher tried to tell me that he doesn't like the puffed corn I packed in his lunch. Yeah, he requested it the next day for his snack.

    I have an early riser. It does suck, but my cousin told me this week that she has to drag her little boy out of bed and it's nearly impossible to get his clothes on him. L is up and at 'em, dresses himself, and is ready to go. So I guess there's always a silver lining!
