Bye Bye Baby!

Sir Isaac is growing so fast! I think today will be our official LAST DAY OF NEWBORN CLOTHES! How time flies! The only reason he is still wearing the NB onesie today is because I already had it over his head before I realized it was too small! And it is such torture to change him! He absolutely hates the shirt over-the-head part of the day!
Thanks so much for all the great responses to the last post! I was so relieved to hear that I am not the only one out there with some frustrations! I am glad to hear Isaac is not the only baby to ONLY sleep in the stroller or in the laundry room! Nor am I the only one who fell into the LaLeche trap or victim to the Colic nights! Thanks for the support! I know it will pay off in the long run!
Little man surely gave me a run for the money last night! The crying would not let up! The only thing that would stop him were walks outside - and he is no dummy - my rocking the stroller in the house did not cut it! We had to go OUTSIDE - and keep moving!!! He is cute - but demanding! Then VICTORY!!!! He fell asleep in the stroller for 4 hours!!! It was a like a mini vacation! It is like a crib on wheels!! Jill and Gina suggested Colic Calm Gripe Water to ease the fussiness - I hope it works! If I can find it that is!! Anyone out there try it before?
FINALLY! The weather is starting to let up here - only in the low 90's today! Yeah!! Finally I can take the stroller out in the afternoon! We went out to run some errands yesterday and I could have fried an egg on his carseat when we got back to the car! I am ready for Fall for sure! So are the mutts! They are ready to get out of the house! Now if I can only handle 3 dogs and a baby I will be all set!
More to come! Thanks again for all the support and comments! I appreciate it!


  1. Off to 3mo clothes Hopefully also closer to getting over his colicy behavior. with alittle luck it will only be 2 months. try to keep your sanity It will pass Promise & it will be worth it take it from a 5 time colic Queen I wouldn't trade one of you ..WEll...

  2. Hi mama! Sounds like you are getting the hang of things with your little one - things will settle down - and just when they do something else will happen! You are a great mommy! We miss you out here...send me your address when you can! XOX Jill G

  3. Hi Nikki, hope this goes through, I don't know which coice to make in the "Comment as" section...each choice is unfamiliar to me. Sorry to hear Isaac's been so fussy. I'd offer a suggestion, but (luckily)I have no experience with Colic. I suggested to Jason the other day about taking him outside a bit each day..which I'm glad to hear, may be working a bit for you. Maybe the little prince, just needs a change of scenery now & then. Sounds like you're doing a great job as a new Mommie & a good sign of that is that he's growing like a weed! He is so adorable!...Hang in there, the first 4 months are always the worst. Love, Gramma Roberta
