Brooklyn and Mommies Day
Today Brooklyn and I had to drive into Phoenix to pick up Mine and Brett's anniversary cake topper from the wedding.
The cake people remake our top layer wedding cake for our 1st year anniversary... I just never got around to ordering and picking it up til now! That was a 2.5 hour car ride, round trip. So that took up our morning! Now Brooklyn is taking a nap while I get a moment to myself! Yesterday I bought a new sling for Brooklyn and I. It's called the Moby and I am in love with it!
It's my new found best friend. I can do soo much more while carrying Brooklyn because it frees up both my hands! She's totally secure up against my chest and she just snuggles up and falls straight to sleep whenever she's in it. The only draw back is that with the hot weather now she can get rather hot in it so I would only use it where A/C is on! For any other mom's out there I would definately recommend it and check it out! And Bonus....it's a good workout too! I almost feel like I am preggos again because I carry all her weight right up front...that might not seem like such a bonus to some people out there! Now Brooklyn and I are just waiting for Brett to come home from work since he's off early today. I can't wait for him to get home to give me an extra hand with Brooklyn. Our goal lately has been to have her be awake and social as much as she can as is willing during the day so she sleeps well at night....then we sleep well! She'll wake up twice during the night and the only struggle that I have is that she doesn't fall back to sleep right away after she's done eating. And I have to be sneaky about putting her back in the bassinet when I think she has finally fallen asleep. She'll cry if she hasn't quite fallen into deep sleep yet and realizes she isn't being held. Kay, new mom question....Is this a problem?! Am I screwed for the future?!
How can you not want to hold this sweet face?! And when she cries now she gets big girl tears and everything, it's really quite sad to watch her cry like she absolutely miserable....I'm such a sucker!
