ISO: The Perfect Crib
- Published on Friday, 08 June 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveBaby M has been sleeping in the cradle that was mine as a baby since he was a few weeks old. At first he was in a bassinet in our room and then I put the bassinet inside the cradle when he was 2.5 weeks old; then at 12 weeks we retired our bassinet completely.
In a few short weeks baby M and I will go to my parents'...
Whew, that Feels Good
- Published on Thursday, 07 June 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveI just packaged up the last of the June wedding orders for our sail bags.
This last order was for six bags, which felt like it took forever to complete. Life has certainly changed this year; I just can't pull a couple of all-nighters to sew six bags in one weekend anymore! Someone wakes up at 7:30 in the morning no...
BLW: Baby Led Wednesday - Foods with Handles
- Published on Wednesday, 06 June 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveAfter last week's misadventures with avocado and baby M's inability to actually get any in his mouth, a friend suggested leaving the skin on fruits and veggies to give a bit of a "handle." So this week's focus was on foods with grippy skins.
We tried a banana with a handle first by washing it well and then cutting a...
That Dang Fence
- Published on Tuesday, 05 June 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveWe're closing in on the hot, hot, hot season very quickly here and that dang fence is still un-stained. It's looking increasingly like I'm going to be rolling up my sleeves, donning my overalls and doing this job myself before it gets too hot to be outside.
Problem is, I just can't decide on a stain color! I'm thinking...
BLW: Baby Led Wednesday - Green Beans Avocado
- Published on Wednesday, 30 May 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveWe're in the very early stages of starting baby led weaning with baby M. Baby led weaning isn't really weaning in the U.S. meaning of the word because baby M still gets 99.9% of his nutrition from my milkies, it's a way of introducing solid foods that completely bypasses the mush of purees and cereals. No mush, no...
The Apple v. The Baby
- Published on Friday, 25 May 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveThe fight is on!
There was no clear winner in this battle. Baby M, having no teeth, gave the apple a good, hardcore gumming. The apple, covered in drool slipped out of reach several times. Finally daddy stepped in for a few minutes to give the boy the upper hand.
As bedtime quickly approached and the apple went sliding...
My Mother's Day Closet
- Published on Thursday, 24 May 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveI know Mother's Day was almost two weeks ago now, but I'm just now putting the finishing touches on one of S's Mother's Day gifts!
We usually make wish lists for holidays and Mother's Day was no exception. I asked S for an engraveable bracelet from baby M. Baby M gave it to me and I love it. But, S didn't stop with the...
Baby Bee's Updated Gallery Wall
- Published on Tuesday, 22 May 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveWhat seems like a lifetime ago, we created a gallery wall in the nursery before baby M arrived.
Baby Bee's Budding Book Collection
- Published on Friday, 18 May 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveEveryone I know grew up reading books before bed. When my brother and I were young, my parents read to us all the time. As we got older my mom would read longer novels to us, a few pages of a chapter each night. I don’t think we ever made it through The Yearling, but I know we were in middle school when I became a...
5 Months Today
- Published on Monday, 14 May 2012
Authors: Our Little BeehiveBaby M is 5 months old today. I say it every month, but it really is crazy how quickly time passes. This morning after breakfast M got dressed in his elephant outfit that he wears for all his monthly photos. I pulled out the 6mos size, but then decided to try the 3mos to see if it still fits and it did. Baby M was much...
