Thank You Mamaroo!
This little contraption by 4Moms is quit possibly the best invention ever! It is responsible for letting mommy sleep for 8 hours last night. Yep, Miss Olivia slept for 8 whole hours last night. I love that the Mamaroo moves like I do when I am walking around with her trying to sooth this little acid reflux princess. it also makes water sounds that trick her into thinking we are standing in the bathroom. Plus i think that Mamaroo is a really cool name for a product.

P.S. My Mamaroo was making funny noises so I called the company up and in a matter of days I had a new one at my doorstep. There arent that many companies with great customer service like that anymore! So needless to say I would recommend this product to any new Mommy!

Sleeping Like A Baby???

OK, everyone knows the saying "Sleep like a baby" Right? It got me thinking......would I really want to sleep like a baby? Would I want to wake up from a sound sleep every 2 to 3 hours absolutly starving and need to eat asap! Would I want to be asleep and have to be moved from car seat to crib and back again? Would I want to only wake up because my pants are soggy? No way! Id rather sleep like a teenager. They can sleep for hours if not an entire day without needing anything! They can sleep through a tornado, earthquake or even little siblings. So would you rather sleep like a baby or soundly like a teenager?

Oh how I love baby feet. I can't seem to get enough of them. As we come into the colder months I only get to see them when they are in the bathtub or when changing into a new outfit. I must confess that sometimes I pull off a sock while she is eating just to kiss those little toes.

Attitude of Gratitude

I tell me kids to have an "attitude of gratitude" all the time. I think it is important for kids to be greatful for things both great and small in their life. As we approach Thanksgiving it always reminds me, as the Mommy, to be thankful as well. So this month I am reminding myself daily of the little moments I am greatful for.

I am greatful that Q has finally decided that Olivia is pretty cool to have around. No more poking and prodding her. No more fits that he doesn't want a baby in this house. No more yelling I'm the baby here!!! Thanks Q, its great to see you love her so much, I always knew you would.
