Sunday Stickies

Things I never thought I'd do with my newborn baby...
{but we all know how this went down and it's been one of the best decisions we've made for our family... and that's all that matters}

{I used to *gasp* at the moms who brought their teeny tiny babies to public places like Target and Wally World, but honestly, when you gotta go, you gotta go. We just made sure to keep our hands clean, and covered her up!}

{Oh, this one. I was TOTALLY against pacifiers before I was pregnant. But let's be real... my girl needs it. There are just times when she needs a soothie. And there are times when mom is falling over starving needs to fix lunch and has a fussy baby who does not want to be put down. The binky fix allows me to do that. She'll usually only suck on it for a few minutes, then spit it out, or we'll take it out after she's calmed down. Blake looked up the medical pro's and con's of pacifiers: 
PROS: soothes a fussy baby, temporary distraction, help baby fall asleep, and may help reduce sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) [source]}
[she still looks cute!]

{I never thought I'd be okay leaving my baby behind, but last night my parents watched Emmy for a few hours while B and I finally went to see Harry Potter. I missed her, but I wasn't a nervous wreck like I thought I'd be! Go me!}

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

  2. OK so as I was reading this I realized I said the exact same things; minus target we didn't have one near by at the time and the pacifier was letting my little man suck his thumb (now we have both)! and yes did the same! You have do what you have to do :)

  4. i was 100% against the pacifier too and I caved in week 8. it was sooooo great for 2 weeks but then my son then decided he hated it. oh well, one less thing to worry about weaning him from.

    and leaving baby to go see harry potter is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! we did that last saturday! :)
