10 Months + Life Update

next
Eyeliner Basics

October is turning outΒ to be one of the busiest months Justin and I have ever had. And David too but he doesn’t care as long as he has cheddar cheese around.

I traveled a bit, Justin traveled a bit, my kind and generous mom moved down to help for the ENTIRE MONTH I KNOW SHE IS THE BEST, my sister is visiting, we are movingΒ a couple rooms around upstairs to prepare for the unborn to make his/her appearance in February.

We are also van shopping in the midst of all of this because it’s time for me to upgrade. Keyword there is “upgrade”. Many women don’t find a van to be an upgrade but I am seriously excited about it. Hello automatic doors. Hello space and storage for days.

And we are squeezingΒ in some fun stuff too on the weekends. Hashtag Murder Mystery party with our friends. Dream of dreams come true.

Anyway, October is cray.Β 

Also, it’s currently 80 degrees and rainy so that’s an absolute delight if you ask me. Not.

THUS, I’m probably only going to be posting about 4x a week for the next few weeks. I’m trying to create some content for my maternity leave next year as well so I don’t just disappear from this blog.

I’m excited about a series I’ll be starting in November that rhymes with Shmanmade Lifts that will run us right into December. I’ve had to order a lot of questionable materials from Amazon so there’s a good chance I’ll be flagged here in the near future.

“That blonde girl is buying strange chemicals on Amazon again. Keep your eyes out.”

I don’t know.

I’m bored to DEATH with my hair. I’m doing this brand new idea called Ombre, I’m sure you’ve never seen it or heard of it. I think it may start a revolution. Perhaps with all of the women in the world.

Anyway, I’m between stylists here in the ‘ole Raleigh because I’m just too picky and I like to be in control of my own hair destiny, so I’m going to DIY my hair color. No there will not be a tutorial because no one should be as reckless as I am.

In other more interesting and small news, David is officially 10 months old. That’s right, he reached the double digits.

He has also upgraded to big boy pajamas because they don’t make footie sleepers that zip for, ahem, rounder infants.

David

Pardon the nap face. Also the fake smile but he gets it honest so I can’t really fault him for that.

davie3

He weighs in at a whopping 23 pounds, although it feels like he weighs about 50 pounds. You know how some babies clench their legs and sort of hold onto you as you carry them?

Yeah David doesn’t, so it’s just dead weight hanging off of you. My triceps are starting to get seriously toned.

He is army crawling around the house, but hasn’t gotten up to his hands and knees yet! He’ll rock back and forth on them, but he won’t move forward.

He doesn’t like to drink with his meal, but if I offer his sippy cup on a walk, or if we are running errands, he’ll act as if he’s been parched for hours.

He loves bath time, and will crawl from his nursery to the bathroom as soon as he hears the water pouring.

I found the first foreign object in his mouth so I’ve officially passed that parental milestone. If you have children, or have been around them you already know this, but he’ll find the tiniest speck of something in a corner and attempt to eat it. I swiffer/vac as often as I possibly can.

He likes to follow Grits around the house which Grits does not enjoy. However he can still escape to the tops of cabinets so he’s not really in imminent danger.

As far as the next baby goes, everything is going well! I’m in the sweet spot of pregnancy (22 weeks) where I’m sleeping well, feeling good, and finally have a decent enough belly for people to notice instead of wondering if I just hadn’t lost the baby weight from David yet.

My glucose test is coming up in a few weeks, which wasn’t nearly as bad as everyone made it out to be, and then we’ll schedule the delivery day! February is going to be here before I know it. I’m excited and nervous at the same time.

I may never shower or cook a meal again, but we’ll make it through the first couple years.

So that’s the baby and David update for the week. Justin and I are still deciding on what he should be for Halloween, but get ready for those pictures to be overgrammed and overshared here on the blog. We are debating between a tiny Newsie (David has the fake cough mastered) or a shark.

Or a cat because how cute would it be to get David and both cats lined up for a photo?

Hey we just traded up to a mini van and I’m 27 weeks preg. We’re in sync. Let me tell you, I never thought I’d be a MVP (minivan person) but it’s the best. It’s all about the automatic doors, right? Now I’m official ‘That Mom.’ It’s cool, I’ve accepted it. You’re lil’ guy is starting to look like a little boy more than just a little baby. Awww. He’ll be walking before you know it!

I always love following along with your life here! I just wanted to throw my 2 cents in for your stylist… I live in Charlotte and still drive back to Raleigh to see Anna at Aura Salon in Wake Forest…. I’ve followed her from salon to salon… no one in the big city of CLT compares! Love her πŸ™‚

Omg yes a cat & line them all up!! Lol

Could you talk about doing things with friends and baby? We have yet to leave our 12 month old with a non-family member to do bedtime. Closest family is 3 hours away. I would like to get together with our couples friends, but we haven’t yet let a friend/babysitter do bedtime. Is the answer to just get over it?

Reply
Laura says · 10.15.14

Get together with your couples friends at someone’s house and bring your pack’n’play. That’s what we do with our 11-month-old. Put him to sleep at his normal bedtime in a bedroom and you’re good to go to hang out in the living room or kitchen!

And if you don’t want to do that, then yes, get over it. πŸ™‚

I love your blog. I don’t want to tread on unwelcome waters, but I had a C-section with my first baby and am hoping for a VBAC if/when there is a second. It sounds like you might be planning a repeat C-section (scheduling the birth). Forgive me if I’m wrong on that. I just want you to know that as long as you’re healthy and don’t have any underlying medical problems that would prevent it, you can VBAC if you’d like. If you’re interested, start with http://www.ican-online.org/ and http://vbacfacts.com/13-myths-about-vbac/. Find an ICAN chapter in your area if you can and go from there. Again, if you don’t want to VBAC, please forgive my comment. I just want every pregnant mama to make informed choices either way. πŸ™‚

The second kid made me get a mini van too. LOVE it and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I feel bad for my friends who have an SUV with more than one kid. You will be amazed at how much easier it is to click the infant seat in after a c section too! My stomach muscles aches for months and I remember explicitly the pain when lifting the infant seat in my jeep- this time around it wasn’t bad at all because they aren’t as high. No to mention how tricked out those swagger wagons are!

Hair. I’m with you. The very reason I chopped 13 inches off since March and now have cherry colored hair. I know you will do neither but it happens. I was going for copper. Why is red so stinkin’ hard to get right??? Why did God create a color that can’t be replicated? Don’t answer that, I know, because He is God and He creates beauty. Now, why didn’t I appreciate my beautiful red hair in my prime years! Oh, because I felt like a freak. Sigh, I want that red back. The cherry is kinda fun but it’s really dark and I’m not a dark-hair-girl. Rambling.

Kate
I ran into your blog while trying to figure out how and what to do with my hair on my daughters wedding, October 20. You are a blessing to women as we all look great (hopefully) when leaving the salon but so many of us can’t seem to get those looks from home.
I am a (pretty young hip and fun life living) 43 year old with 3 adult kids (23-25) and a two year old granddaughter and grandson on the way. I have just recently come into myself and my own beauty and style, as my youth was (do the math) stolen from motherhood, which was a beautiful gift. Again, thank you for changing my hair life!!!
I have a couple questions, which I haven’t seen blogs about.
My hair is Very thick but Very fine. Hold and styling is tricky. I also have a long face and tall forehead to match my tall semi-slim build. My hair is just above my shoulders.
Do you have any recommendations on specific products? I use Kendra and herbal essence currently but weight and hold is a problem. (Live in southern texas- hot and humid)
Bangs? Do have or not to have?
Been playing with your styles for my up and coming wedding. Any specific recommendations?
Again, you are awesome!!!! Thanks for all you do!!!
Wish I could send you a pic πŸ™‚

I just got a van (Town and Country) and I am IN LOVE with it. I’ve never understood the mini-van hate. We were trying to make a SUV work for our family of 6 but there just wasn’t enough space. I adore my mini-van. I’ve found myself making excuses to drive her.

Have you tried Carter’s sleepers? We buy the zip up footed pjs from there. My 3yr old still wears them since they go up to size 5T at least. I just ordered fleece ones for her and our 1 yr old for this winter.

Jenna says · 10.15.14

Yay on the van! We have one baby and none on the way, and as much as I said I would NEVER drive a van, we’ve been thinking about getting one. You would think you could fit ONE baby and 2 adults in an SUV, but apparently, that is not the case and I’ve been riding around the back seat for the last 7.5 months. By the way, I love these types of posts even more than the hair/make-up ones, so keep ’em coming! πŸ™‚

I hate to break it to you, but my almost 4 year old never clenched his legs around my hips when I was holding him. I’ve had older moms/ grandmas tell me that boy babies generally don’t. My youngest is 12 weeks so I’m waiting to see if he will or not.

You will love a minivan! My kids were 3 and 5 when I finally grew tired of the 3 year old pulling on her brothers ear or nose or whatever she could reach while he was sleeping in the backseat of my Volvo wagon and she was not. We put him in the rear row of the van on the drivers side and put her in the middle row on the passenger side and my life was changed. My van had 3 individual seats in the middle row and we left the one immediately next to my daughter so she could reach toys/books etc but took out the one directly behind me/in front of my son. Gave him more room to get in and gave me more room if I needed to get back there to help with opening a toy from Target. Always keep scissors in the glove box, learned that the hard way also!

He can roll like nobody’s business and he can army crawl faster than the speed of light, but being on his knees? Nope!
We recently got a van too and honestly, I was SO against it. I DID NOT want a van. But, um… don’t tell my husband I said this, but it’s amazing! The extra storage space is fantastic! And yes, automatic sliding doors? Thankyouverymuch.
Good luck on your van search!

I have 3 boys (7 months, 3 & 6 years) and am a huge Carter’s lover. Not only do they fit true to size but are well made and last forever. My 6 year old still wears footed pjs in the winter and my baby is wearing them now. As far as the van, I have seen a few that look super srylish (Sienna and Quest I believe). I have an Enclave which has captain’s chairs then a 3rd row for my oldest. Works great for now but may not in a few years when he’s bigger.

Just love this van and my kids are all teens now. Believe me, you will love having a van even with big boys and girls because then you will have football pads and baseball bags in addition to bigger bodies and nothing beats a van for room and comfort! We almost did the Sequoia to go more the truck route, but the “boot” (trunk) was a deal-breaker for hauling groceries, etc.

Haha, love the above comment about diminished eyesight. I hear ya! Anyway, just chiming in to say mini vans (we have 2013 Odyssey) are the BEST. We have 3 kiddos and tried squeezing them in the back of an SUV for a while and it was possible, but there was no room for any stuff and the baby could pull hair/scratch either sibling as we drove. The van is perfection on wheels, despite the silly stereotypes. And my costume vote is cat, too.
