Mom of the Year

Last week Ivy went through a growth spurt.
I know this, because our happy, awesome sleeper was a eating, cranky, non-sleeping machine.
Plus her clothes didn't fit her overnight.

We did a lot of bouncing, singing, swaying, silly faces, talking, laughing, and crying.
I was so tired & used my favorite tools to play mom for me.
One of them is my Ergobaby carrier.
Some days it's the only way I can get anything done, or the only thing that will get her to sleep!
One night after trying to get her to bed for hours, I laid her up in front of a movie in my room, because she loves watching the tv lights. So, I figured she could fall asleep that way so I could fall asleep....
but she looked like this.
I turned the movie off & propped a bottle to get her to eat herself to sleep.
True love and sacrifice right there.
Well, we must have both fallen asleep, because I woke up the next morning.... when I looked over to pull the bottle off her, the bottle was full of dry formula. I fed her the dry bottle of powder instead of the bottle I made.

Where's my MOTY trophy?

  1. Cute story but the thing that really captures my imagination and delight is this absolutely DARLING picture of you, Rachel! You are so photogenic! Cutest picture of you! I love it! Great one of Miss Ivy peering over her carrier, too! Made me smile!
