Howdy blog! If this is a Good Nap Day, I estimate that I have 30 minutes to write this blog entry. Let’s see what happens! Last week I decided the last of the bread left by our houseguests needed to be eaten in the form of a grilled cheese sannie…or three! The ultimate comfort food. Mmmm.
One week ago today. A typical Friday night for new parents. We have a new bedtime routine…ice cream and Sleepytime tea around 8:30 pm, which is when I kick off my three rounds of breastfeeding. We’ve done that for most of this week and he has slept GREAT–now he only wakes up twice, once for a Josh feeding at 2-ish and once for a Liz feeding at 5-6-ish. Then if I’m really lucky, he might let me sleep until 8–but not the last two days.
Still! I’m not complaining! It works out to 8 hours of sleep if you subtract the pee breaks I still have to make. What is THAT all about? Is that just my New Normal? I’ve been using that term a lot since Baby M. has been born.
I continue to be inspired by tattoo art on IG, although I’m over wanting any more for myself. Although at least 3 times a year I think I want to cover up my old sun tattoo. BUT WITH WHAT? The eternal dilemma.
I’m going to slowly post less pictures of my son on my primary IG account, and just post to his private account, so if you want to see more pictures of Baby M. (and I know you in real life), than please visit @babyboyholcomb.
I’d like to eventually make my @artwaif account public again, to help “promote my artwork”. BAH HA HAAAAAA.
Last weekend I went to a consignment shop and bought him 4 shirts, two sweatshirts and a pair of socks for only 24$! I was proud. His feet just keep getting bigger and bigger! So does the rest of him. 2 months old and he’s wearing 3 month clothing.
I wrangled him into the car seat today for another Bob walk. I feel so proud every time I manage to get us all out the door for a walk at the park! Someday it won’t be such a hassle.
Catching some March sun with my son, in fleece jackets. He didn’t fuss as much as I figured he would with the hood on. He seems to enjoy being outside…just like his parents!
Recently discovered designer Ashish and I’m pretty obsessed with everything he does–rainbows! Glitter! Kitsch! Right up my alley.
Two months old, and such a little chunk! He’s pretty happy in the morning. In the evening that “baby witching hour” kicks in from 4-8 and it’s fuss FEED fuss FEED fussss. Poor Josh, he doesn’t get to see all the smiles that I do.
Completed tiny painting for my neighbor’s dollhouse!
I was so inspired I just ordered a dozen tiny canvases (with easels!) to do a series. I already know who my first subject is going to be…Louise Brooks, of course!
I offered to do a free one for Christopher and Jenn for their dollhouses, and the rest I will put up for sale in my Etsy shop. Dollhouse art has its own niche!
Hoping to get through this book in the next…um, year. Heh.
He likes to be held facing away from us, so sometimes I use my camera to see what his face looks like…and sometimes it looks like this! Happy little boy! I’m crazy about this kid.
Well, er…impulse buy at the grocery store led to binge eating led to an inflamed gum around my right lower molar! Coincidence? I think not.
Sometimes Maggie thinks that dropping the tennis ball into the nearest disgusting pool of stagnant water is cute. Not so cute, Maggie.
That’s it? I wrote an entire blog entry during the last leg of a nap? Amazing! Maybe I even have time to start my Louise Brooks painting. Catch yer later!
