*The sweedish Nosefrida is god's gift to new moms with squirmy babies and stuffy noses.
*I miss alot if things but primarily: having more than 1.5 glasses of wine at a time, stomach sleeping, and spontaneity. But mostly spontaneity. We moved our bookshelf of framed photos from the entryway to the living room to make room for stroller parking and for some reason, seeing those snapshots in my line of vision more frequently has made me very reflective on the how much has changed in just 5 weeks. I want to dive back into those photos some moments when I feel the walls of this apartment caving in on me or the pouts of a crying baby have become too much.
*Speaking of...Morgan is dealing with a bout of silent reflux. Google it, it's scary and the poor girl winces in pain mid-nap waking her from a deep slumber (and stealing Mama's downtime as I'm having to hold her upright as she naps---even the bouncy seat is too flat.) Waiting on doctor to call me back. I'm hoping it's baby Zantac to the rescue. I almost wrote "baby Xanex" just now...I'm sure THAT would knock the little one into quite the snoozefest haha.
*Time with Erin & Abby this weekend allowed me to laugh in a way that only happens when we retell PSU or study abroad stories for the umpteenth time to whomever (Lee...er, Morgan) will listen. Also of note: seeing your closest friends holding and loving on your baby is a life high. Morgan experienced her first NYC Sunday brunch over baked eggs and girl chat at Cafe Ronda. And then lost her cool after mama pushed the envelope time wise and baby wanted the milkshake factory again. Story of my life.
*Morgan took a bottle on Sunday after a week of fighting it. Lee went from being the bottle bully to the bottle buddy. She takes anywhere from 3-5oz from the Dr. Brown's bottle, propped up into the nook of Daddy's arm, one hand tucked on her side the other holding Lee's hand in hers. It is the cutest thing I have ever seen.
*As all my recent posts end..."and the baby is up..." um...the baby is up. Adios for now.
