My daughter is 11 weeks old, and she pees in a potty. That’s right: my infant pees in a potty. And she poops in one, too. Not all the time, mind you; but these days we catch most of her daytime potty needs. Plus, in the last two weeks, I’ve changed 3 poopy diapers. The other 32 times she’s pooped, our little baby has waited until she had her diaper off and was in a “potty place” in order to go.
Sometimes it’s important to let things lie fallow. To allow inactivity…stillness…to simply be. To be, and to be no more. It’s a hard thing to let yourself do. “Just being” makes many of us insecure. Silence can bother us, weighing on us like an ocean of pressure. Stillness can bother us; it feels better to do something, to get up and wash the dishes, to turn on the TV.
I have been meaning to blog a tour of Phoebe’s nursery for months, and now, at long last, here you have it! The tour of Phoebe’s baby room has arrived!
My favorite thing about summertime food is how easy it is. Everything is fresh and abundant. Flavors abound everywhere. People get excited about real foods, raw foods and local foods in their most natural states.
I blogged previously about baby sleep schedule; first I wrote a rambling introduction, then an explanation of the method that my friend introduced to me. I took a time out to devote an entire post to crying. And now, at long last, I will try to wrap things up and describe to you what our “baby sleep method” has become.
I almost forgot that today was Phoebe’s 2 month “birthday.” What a milestone! It warms my heart to see it. I snapped some pictures of her right before bedtime. She’s wearing some of my favorite PJs; they have hedgehogs on them. And her hair is all mussed and curly from her bath.
It’s almost been a year since I started blogging about eating food from our CSA, and a lot has happened. We bought a house. We got pregnant and had our first baby. I got laid off and my unemployment checks ran out. And now our baby girl is almost 2 months old.
I know, I know, I know. I’ve been promising a post about what adaptations we’ve made to the sleep scheduling method that my friend Corrie told us about, and what kind of success we’re having with it. But, the more I think about it, the more I feel it’s on my heart to take a “time-out” and devote an entire post to the one thing most parents hate the most: crying.
