Proud Mama Monday

Saw this fun blogging link up on a friend’s blog… you can read about her Proud Mama moments on her blog, A Work in Progress!
Anyways, so this past week Boogie has taken off! She’s officially a toddler… which is both exciting and depressing all at the same time! So we celebrated by buying her some new shoes. And no child of mine can go without a pair of chucks!

I also decided to try wrapping again… in the past several months it’s been impossible to wrap Boogie. She stretches her legs and I haven’t been able to get a good seat under her when I back wrap her… but lately she’s let me do it again! I even wrapped her at Target the other day, but after being on my back for about an hour she was over it and wanted to sit in the buggy! But that was better than nothing!

30 Day Photography Challenge: Day 1

Day One: Self-Portrait

I planned to wait until J got home so that I could take a picture of myself dressed, showered, and not looking like… well a stay at home mom I guess lol. I changed my mind though. This is me. At 5:30 in the morning after a LONG night of trying to get Boogie to stay asleep. Hair is messy, no make-up (not that I wear it that often), pj’s on, and easily accessible “boos” for the girl baby. At least I managed to brush my teeth this morning, right? Right?! 


Well, it seems like every other night Boogie has a good night… and then a bad one. Last night wasn’t too bad actually. She went down a little early because she hasn’t been napping well (thanks to our wonderful LOUD neighbors), so she was asleep by 7… woke up twice between then and 10 but J got her back to sleep fairly quickly both times. Then she didn’t wake up until 1:45! And then she woke up at 3:30 and we didn’t get her back to sleep until almost 4:15. J finally got her back to sleep for me and she slept til almost 6. I was too tired to fight with her so we just went and laid on the couch and slept til 8. Overall a good night… especially compared to the night before when she was up every few hours!

Like I mentioned in a previous post, tomorrow is Boogie’s 10 month birthday! I still haven’t completely decided what I want to do for her 10 month photos… obviously some will have something to do with Halloween, but other than that I’m not sure what we’re doing! Anyways… just wanted to update a little on Boogie’s sleep training. 🙂
