Thursday Randoms

  • It has been a long time since I wrote a bulleted post.
  • I kinda miss it.
  • I reminds me of when I used to blog at work.  Good times.
  • Do y'all watch Big Brother?  I'm pretty much obsessed with the show.  I follow some spoiler feeds on Twitter and I try to talk to Matt about it all the time.  He could care less.
  • What kind of toys to you buy for 7 month olds?  I feel like Natalie is still playing with her baby toys and some stuffed animals and she is beyond bored.  
  • I'm borrowing my FIL's car for a while whilst we continue to look for a new car for me.  My Taurus is dying a slow death and is no longer safe.  So now I'm sporting around town in a serious old man car.  With two doors.  Have you ever tried to get an infant carrier out of the middle seat in the back of a two door car?  HELL.
  • Because of this, I think I'm going to switch Natalie to the convertible car seat this weekend.  She's almost to the weight and height limit on her carrier anyways.  Guess this was just the push I needed.
  • I got Natalie her first sippy cup yesterday and she looks so big using it.  But seriously, there are a lot of different sippy cups out there.  How the heck are you supposed to know which one to get?  
  • My new favorite snack is the Fiber One 90 Calorie Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie.  So good and only 2 points!
  • I've lost 35 lbs. since starting WW after Natalie was born.  I'm less than 5 lbs. away from my pre-Natalie weight!  Funny how nothing seems to look the way it did before I got pregnant though.  
  • That really sucks.
  • But everyday I get to spend with my sweet girl makes it totally worth it.  Plus, I'm still working on another 40 lbs. so maybe it will look better when those are gone :)

OH - but a warning for you...even WORSE than a rear-facing snap in seat in the middle of the back of a two door car is a rear-facing convertible. HORRIBLE. You then have to get IN the car with her to strap her in. We have a 2 door civic and are living this nightmare.
