Audrey, like her big sister Emma, spends a lot of time in her swing. She loves to look up and “talk” to the little lambs circling above her, she likes the light up stars, and the rocking soothes her to fall asleep on her own – just about the only place, other than the car, that she does that. This swing is the reason I get anything done around the most most days (but don’t tell my husband, because I am still trying to get by with the brand-new baby excuse for the dirty dishes and laundry!).
The weather is warming up (from our frigid winter of 50-60s), and Audrey is rejoicing my showing off her guns and toes. Her sleepers are used mainly for sleeping now, and little miss is rocking real outfits most of the time. She has a handful of dresses I adore (my favorite are the onesies with attached skirts, so much easier for a little baby than a real dress), but most days she is wearing cute onesies and likely a pair of ruffle booty pants.
I talked about this in my Breastfeeding Must-Haves post, but we actually use cloth diaper pre-folds for burp cloths and they are the best ever spit up soaker uppers there ever were. I have these scattered all over my house (though I still end up soaking up spit up with my own clothes at least once a day – sigh).
This is a product I had but hardly used with Emma, and it has been so lovingly used this time around! I actually got a new one from a dear friend Melissa (thank you, friend!), and I am so glad to have had this handy wrap. It takes a little practice to get it tied on you just right, but it is so nice for babywearing tiny babes. I busted out my soft-structured carrier at the end of Month Three, and so prefer the wrap still. This wrap allowed me to go grocery shopping, and to wander around Target for many many hours over the past couple months.
