First 100 Days - week 1

We thought it would be cool to post a pic a day for the first 100 days of G's life. I'm not sure if I will be able to post everyday but after a hundred days there should be 100 pictures on this blog.

Day 1 - Dad cutting the umbilical cord
Day 2 - Snuggling with Mom
Day 3 - "The Claw" his arm had a diaper around it to protect his hep-lock for his IV
Day 4 - We looked over at his crib and saw his staring back at us
Day 5 - First day at home in his own crib. He looks so tiny!
Day 6 - Playing with Dad
Day 7 - Family pic at his meet and greet

How am I going to do ______ with a baby?

This question has been on my mind for a while now. I have not really had a dilemma about how am I going to do things while pregnant although a few things have been obstacles to overcome. A few examples would be bending over to roll up my jeans, preventing 'the belly' from getting burned while cooking something on the stove, and learning how to sleep on my side with 3 pillows. Gladly, I can say I have mastered all these potential issues.

Now comes the question of how am I going to do certain things while having an infant at my side.

Some of the things I question are:

  • How will I take a shower? Do I just leave my little bundle of joy by himself???
  • How will I go to the bathroom at say Target? The cart with the car seat in it will not fit in the stall. How can I leave my baby in the sink area - someone might grab him!
  • How will I do the laundry? In our apartment complex the laundry room is outside and about 2 doors down. This means to do a load of laundry I would have to carry the baby while holding the laundry basket and detergent at the same time or leave the baby in the apartment alone!!??? Yicks!
  • How will I exercise? I can't leave him on the side of the pool in the car seat while I do a few laps. Ugh!
  • How am I going to get him in the sling by myself???
  • What about when I need to run into the bank for just a moment? I have a feeling my life is going to slow down quite a bit.
I know all this may seem crazy to you seasoned moms out there but they truly are concerns I have. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. :)

Baby Boy Playlist

I made a playlist for our little sweet pea. I did quite a bit of research for songs that were really meaningful and good for a baby boy. Here is what I came up with:
  • Godspeed (Sweet Dreams) - Dixie Chicks - Home
  • Anything Like Me - Brad Paisley - American Saturday Night (Bonus Track Version)
  • Beautiful Boy - Ben Harper - Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur
  • Forever Young - Bob Dylan - Planet Waves
  • Ordinary Miracle - Sarah McLachlan - Charlotte's Web (Music from the Motion Picture)
  • Sweet Thing - Van Morrison - Astral Weeks
  • Brahms Lullaby - Lullabies and Children's Songs Canon In D - Lullabies and Children's Songs
  • Amazing Grace - Lullabies and Children's Songs
  • Hush Little Baby / Rock-a-Bye Baby (Instrumental) - Fred Mollin - Disney's Lullaby Album, Vol. 2
  • Somewhere Out There (Instrumental) - Fred Mollin - Disney's Lullaby Album, Vol. 2
If you made a playlist for your baby what songs did or would you include?

2010 Costumes

Brent and I went with the "Bun in the Oven" theme with a little twist. I was a cupcake box, he was the baker and baby was the cupcake. Our bakery was called, "Baby Cakes Bakery!" Cupcakes are all the rage right now so we thought it would be a fun theme.
