First Halloween

…and just like that… Noob Baby’s first Halloween is already over. Whew! And what a day it was. Note to self: Don’t schedule baby shots the day before a holiday, particularly ones that require dressing up in anything besides a Onesie; or before a day in which Noob Baby is going to visit Daddy at work and requires Super Baby behavior. Well, to give her credit, she did great today considering she was running a 101 fever pretty much the {Read More}

Dear Hair

Dear Hair, I’m sorry. Please just hear me out. I shouldn’t have taken you for granted. I never thought we’d have any problems with our relationship so soon, I mean, it’s only been 28 years (give or take). But now I see that the baby–the pregnancy–was just too hard on you.

Red Alert – Baby Sleeping on Tummy!

Just when I thought the coast was clear, and I could finally stop neurotically pressing my baby monitor button every 2 minutes…Noob Baby threw down her Miss Unpredictable card again. Similar to many babies, she is not the biggest fan of tummy time. Essentially, it pisses her off to the core. Most of the time, she ends up on her tummy by accident…and she hasn’t quite learned to get herself back on her back. So she’ll be laying there splat {Read More}

What Does All That Crying Mean?

As a noob parent, it is totally confusing trying to figure out what the heck your baby wants when she’s wailing like a little banshee and you’re a mombie. Noob Daddy very proudly (though not productively) solved this problem by giving Noob Baby her bottle every time she squeaked. Problem solved, and now we have the fattest baby west of the Mississippi. I have to admit, Noob Daddy’s solution didn’t sit so well with me. Maybe it was the lack {Read More}
