Baby wearing

I have decided to do a mini post on baby wearing, with pictures of me and how I wrap my wrap, so I can wear my baby to write these posts. (Wow, holy run on sentence batman)

I have found, being short, baby wearing is a bit of a challenge. I still can't do some activities like cook(I don't want to hurt him with any splatter from the stove) or dishes, because I can't reach the sink. But for other activites, it's perfects. Plus, he loves to nap on me and hear my heart beat.

My wrap is a woven wrap, s it isn't stretchy, but I like that, I feel he is safer and held tighter/closer into me. Now for how I wear him.

1. I grab my wrap and fold in half hot dog style. I find the middle and place it with the folded part down and the opening up on my lower torso.

2. I take the two side pieces and cross them behind me and bring them to the front. I make sure that the openings are facing in toward each other.

3. I then slide the two front pieces underneath the middle pieces. And cross them again, creating a pocket for my son to sit in. (This is very similar to the Moby wrap style, if not exactly how to wrap a Moby)

4. I wrap the two sleeves around me and tie a knot in back. Now for adding my son. I do this from the Molby website I linked about. I practiced and practiced in front of a mirror for a while and even had my husband help me at first. But, for starters, I open the wrap and on the side closes to me, I slide my son onto the sleeve pocket.  (Watch the head. I would do a different hold if your baby doesn't have good head control. My son is resting his head on me while I'm holding him)

5. Then I slide the other sleeve over the one that my son is in, creating a small pocket for him. It looks like a V when he is in the sleeves. 

6. I then pull the middle piece (from the very beginning up over him. So his back has support. I also make sure there is some under his legs,giving them support. That way he is sitting froggy leg style. I also make sure he can breath, so I move his head to where he isn't buried in me or fabric. I make sure that every thing is nice and tight (including the knot behind me, some times I need to loosen it and re-tie it.) and then wear him. 

When he wants out, I lower the middle piece and pull him out. He loves being worn around the house, and loves it when I dance while wearing him.

Winston time

I have been a bad furbaby mom. I have not been spending as much time as I would like with Winston, and he knows it. He is very jealous of JT. So much so, that I have had to stop Wimston from marking JT and all his things. So, to my wonderful readers, I come to you with a problem...what can I do?

I try my best to give him attention, and to cuddle at night, but I know it's not as much as before. I want my doggy to feel loved. Do you readers have any ideas to help me?

Happy Easter

I have a few things to share. Today is my son's first Easter, and yes the bunny came. It was wonderful to see  his face as we showed him what the Easter Bunny got him.

And of course, the main reason of Easter, Our Lord, Jesus Christ has Risen today!

14.5 weeks

I cannot believe that on Friday, this Friday, I will have been a mom for 15 weeks.  In those 15 weeks, I have learned so much about life. I never knew before that I could function on little to no sleep. But, I can.  And I never knew that I could love some one so much, but I do. My little boy, is so precious to me.  He is adorable, and I  love him so very much.

I can tell that his dad loves him too. It makes me smile when I see my husband and son playing together. Last night, my husband gave him a bath, and you could just tell that both he and my husband were having fun.

Friday Night Fish

I haven't done a post about food in a while. I figured, since it is Lent, and Friday nights are fish night, why not go all out and make my own version of  a typical WI Friday night Fish Fry!

Since I believe in being as healthy as possible, plus I don't have a deep fryer, so I decided to bake my fish.  The first thing I did was season my fish. I soaked it in beer. (Any beer will do)

And seasonings. As well as a little bit of flour, mix them together and put them on your fish.

Make sure to grease the pan so it doesn't stick. Then bake the fish according to what type of fish you are making. I made tialpia, so it was in the oven 8-12 minutes at 350 degrees. 

While that is going one, work on your sides. I made steamed broccoli, French Fries and a simple salad.

(Homemade dressing- vinegar,lemon juice,and pepper)

Then cut up some lemon, put is all together on a plate, add a little tarter sauce and bam!

I have a new favorite food. While, let's try favorite vegetable. Yes, I will always love onions, especially when they are free (see a post I did this time last year), and yes, pepper are amazing, along with carrots, but there is something about an avocado that is just...well...amazing.

Let me list the ways:
1. Healthy fats and omegas.
2. Hello, Guacamole...need I even say more.
3. You can substitute it for mayo in any recipe and it automatically becomes healthier.
4.They can increase your energy and make your skin shine
5. Avocado Fries.
6. You Can supposedly grow them yourself, but I have not been able to.
7. They taste good.

There you go, 7 reasons to eat Avocados.

Free stuff

Who doesn't like free stuff?

I do. And since my son has now been sleeping for 2 hours, I'm able to get some blog posts written up for this week. (yay)

Anyways, so one of my mommy group (yes, I am in a mommy group) suggested I try this website.

From what I learned of it, you set up a profile and you get free items. The thing is, I never entered my address, so how do I get these free items?

Okay, so there is more to it, then setting up a profile, You fill out surveys, you write reviews of different products, you invite people...basically you build am on-line social site dedicated to items you like. When a company finds you, then you are suppose to get a free box of goodies.

Since I want my free goodie box, if you want to sign up...go right ahead. If not, that's okay too.

One of my favorite things about summer is all the pretty, beautiful sun dresses out there. I love to wear sun dresses. I have a few from  American Eagle that I love and a few from Maurices.

Of course, I'm looking online name it, Sundresses.

I love how pretty, girly and flirty these are.  What do you think?

A blessed 3 months.

Three months ago today, my baby was born. I don't think I ever shared his birth story. I don't know if I will. The 54 hours that I labored with him, the c-section, the complications that both he and I had...everything, I just feel blessed right now.

I am lucky enough to have a semi-healthy 3 month old. Even with his minor health problems, even though there are times where he is screaming in pain and discomfort, there are times he is smiling. Those times are happening more and more. There are times he laughs, giggles and just seems like the words happiest baby.  There are times where he snuggles, cuddles up close me and holds on to me, never letting go. I know that my baby loves me, and I know that he knows I love him.
