Is there anybody else who still has their Christmas decor up? Because I just always seem to have way more urgent things to do than un-decorate. And once I get a more urgent task completed, I'm so freaking tired that I just don't have it in me to dive into the project of decor-switching! I'm seriously sick of looking at it though!
I ordered my car seat today. Nothing like waiting until the last minute! I sure hope it get's here before Baby Girl does! Here's what we picked:
I'm sorry if this is not incredibly fascinating to everyone else, but I haven't done this for almost 7 years! It's like I'm a first time mom all over again!
I only used an infant car seat/carrier with Bookworm. And by "used" I mean paid for and then never used it as a carrier because he just screamed his guts out the entire time he was buckled in. Never fell asleep in it, and never was content in it when used with the stroller. So basically we would end up carrying the carrier in one hand, and bookworm in the other. NOT the convenience I thought I was paying for! Add that to the fact that he was too tall for it by 4 months, and it seemed like an unnecessary added expense. We skipped the infant seat with the other 3 and just went straight to a convertible seat that went from 5-35 lbs.
We're giving the carrier version another try, in the hopes that this baby won't be as naughty as Bookworm was as a baby! Also because they seem to have come a long way, and accommodate baby for a much longer period of time with broader height and weight limits.
Something else that's evolved quite a bit since my last time around? Bottles made for nursing babies! I used Avent with my other babies, because they were supposedly the best for babies switching back and forth from breast to bottle. But I wasn't necessarily in love with them. I've been doing some research to prepare for this baby, and the bottles are really, REALLY shaped like boobs! Here's what I think we're gonna go with:
I've read lots of great reviews about them. I welcome other suggestions and feedback though!
Okay, something to talk about that isn't baby-related....
Anybody watching The Bachelor? I never watch it, but from the coverage I saw of last season, I really liked Shawn. So when I found out he was the Bachelor this season, I decided to give it a try. I think it's 3 episodes in? I'm not sure I can keep it up....I can't handle how pathetic all the women act! I guess I'll just take my cop shows over drama-filled reality TV.
So, as you can now tell, I have a pretty boring life as of late! But I just didn't want to fall back into the habit of letting more and more time pass between blog posts, until it gets to the point that I'm not blogging at all! Thanks for hanging in with me if you made it this far!
And if you know of any great link parties that happen on a regular basis - please let me know so I have something to fall back on when I'm drawing a blank!
