What's Happenings

First off, I'm going to kick off this post with this.
My neighbor was giving away some mason jars so I snatched up a few and have been putting some flowers from my garden in them and I'm enjoying it so much! I have a couple of them here and there around my house with some knockout roses, daylilies, crepe mytrles (not from the bushes that were so sadly chopped down to little nubs....still not over that) and other little flowers thrown in. It adds a tiny little something around here. Who says flowers have to be a big bouquet? Teeny tiny flowers in small little mason jars are just as enjoyable to me!
I started leaving Campbell's arms out of the swaddle last night. That's some scary business right there! He woke up around 4:45 which was such a bummer. He's been sleeping through the night for almost 2 weeks now, so the 4:45 wake up call was a rude awakening! I was only up with him for 12 minutes but I was so tired this morning! I used to think getting up once a night was a piece of cake. Now I'm used to my sleep so I had to take a nap today. Other than last night, Campbells sleep schedule has been pretty awesome. He goes down for bed around 7:30. At 10:30 I do a dreamfeed then he doesn't wake up until 7:00 the next day. Yay Campbell!! According to Babywise, I can drop that last feeding any time between 16-24 weeks (Campbell is 16 weeks now). I'm so scared to try it though! I'm not sure he would sleep all night without it. I think I'll keep doing it for another month and just attempt to tackle the no swaddle stuff for now!
A new problem I'm running into is this. Campbell is starting to get too big for his bouncer which is super sad because we love the bouncer. He just kicks and squirms so much and once I set him in it, he's down like this about 30 seconds later. We have the Bumbo but I want something a little more plush and cozy for him to sit in. Any of you Momma's out there have a solution for me? Other than buckling him into the bouncer?? I just don't really want to mess with the buckle.
The weather has been so amazing lately so Grace, Ivy and Madison have basically been spending their entire day, the last few days, playing outside. They're finally tired of it, believe it or not! Turns out they like being indoor pups after all. They got some nice sunshine, a cool breeze and plenty of running this week though. Good for them!


  1. I'm afraid you're just gonna have to deal with the dreaded buckle, friend! He's gonna slide out of everything from here on out.

    1. Aww man. Really? That's annoying! Makes me extra excited for the day he learns to sit up on his own!!
