It’s Monday…


It’s another fabulous Monday so I’m linking up with Carissa for Miscellany Monday.

one- It’s after Noon and we’re (E and I) still in our pajamas.  She looks way cuter in hers…

E Week 4 101

two- Our big plans for the day include taking Emerson to get her passport photos made. I guess we’ll have to change out of our pajamas for that…


three-  Jarod and Molly’s party was a blast and it was so awesome to see them. They make the absolute cutest couple and I’m SO happy that they tied the knot. I hope we get to see them again before we make our big move.

E Week 4 020

four- I really need to go to the DMV sometime in the next few days. My NC license expires in December so I’ve decided to get a TX license again and I have to do it before we move. I know the next few weeks will be busy so I need to get it done. I just dread it but at least I don’t have to take a driving test. Smile


five-  We have a bread thief in our house. A few days ago I took Emerson on a walk. I forgot to shut the pantry door before I left and when I came home I found the wrapper to a loaf of French bread on the floor. I figured that the dogs had eaten the whole thing and didn’t think anything of it. A few minutes later I was in my room feeding Emerson when I heard Oscar rooting around in his bed. Next thing I know, he pulls out the whole loaf of bread, gives me a look, and carries it out of the room. It was the funniest thing I have ever seen.

Emerson Week 3 029

six-  I’m completely stressing out. Remember how I mentioned that I bought Emerson the Newborn Rock N’ Play and how much she loves it? Well today I was reading the reviews on Amazon and found out something horrible. Apparently it has caused several babies to develop flat spots on their heads and many of them have ended up having to wear helmets to correct it. It also caused shortened/tight neck muscles in some babies that required physical therapy. I had read some of the review before I bought it but didn’t read the ones with one star so I was really surprised. I’m going to do some more research before I decide what to do but I’m bummed because she loves it so much (and she looks so darn cute in it!)

To avoid the flat spot you just need to make sure she moves her head around and doesn't always lay facing right or left. Also, I bet the flat headed babies were spending a TON of time in there. I already can tell that you hold Em all the time. So I think it's still OK to use. Some babies get flat spots just from napping with their head the same way every single time. So no worries!

AAWW - love the Emerson pics - she is ADORABLE:) And the story and pic of Oscar is HYSTERICAL!!! He looks so proud of his find!!

I think she should be fine just so you make sure she has TONS of tummy time and holding her. I think that those kids with the flat heads probably spent WAY too much time in them and didn't have their parents holding them or letting them get their tummy time in. That also helps with the neck strength too. So don't worry to much if you are giving her lots of tummy and love time! :)

Your day in PJs with your sweet E sound perfect! :) I'm with Rachel--I say you're fine to keep it. (Not that I'm any expert.) But I've read the flat spots happen b/c babies spend too much time in something like a bouncer, etc. I'm sure there were other things like that that came into play with those review. Just my two cents! ;)

Love the bread thief picture. He picked the good stuff, didn't he!? :)
