This super cute hooded romper is always the first thing I put on Rowan after the wash is done. I just love it. The pattern is so different and unique and the fabric is so soft. Also, I seem to melt when a baby has a hooded anything on. The Romper was a gift from Tea Collection. There is a big sale going on right now over there. I would definitely check it out. This romper is now only $19.50!!
A lot has gone on over the last few weeks. Christmas has already come and gone and we are already into our first week of January. Rowan is growing so fast. It still blows my mind when I look back at pictures of when she was just born. She is rolling over like a champ now. She can roll both to the left and right while she is on her tummy. No back to tummy yet, but we are working on it. Still no giggling too, she does do it in her own way but I don’t think it counts as a real laugh. She has also started making this ridiculous dinosaur/Darth Vador noise. It makes me laugh so hard. I don’t know why she does it, but it is hilarious.
Our days lately have been filled with highs and lows. Rowan is definitely teething, so she will go from being a happy little camper to being very upset very quickly. This morning we were laying in bed and she kept going from toy to toy chewing the crap out of them and just whining this sad, sad little cry. I felt so bad for her. I really don’t know much about teething. Anyone have suggestions for me? What works what doesn’t?
We are getting pretty good with our daily schedule. It takes a while to figure it all out but after a few months you start to know. Rowan usually wakes up around 8am. She eats. We play and then she goes back down for a nap 2 hours later. Somedays she wakes up at different times but I know whenever it is that 2 hours later she will need to go back down for a nap. She sleeps around 2-2.5 hours. She will eat again and then if we have errands, we go out and do them. She will usually take another nap around 3ish for another 2 hours and then she will be up until bedtime which is around 9. I think back to the early newborn days and remember the chaos of it all. There was no schedule and you wonder if you will ever feel normal again. Hang tight ladies! It all works out. Things calm down and you really learn to read your little. That’s how I felt anyways. Everyday that goes by Rowan captures more and more of our hearts. We honestly can’t imagine our life without her now.
