The baby list

by Chelsea Myers on September 30, 2012

A lot of things have happened since I started my baby to-do list waaaaayyyy back around 20 weeks.  Lots of things to check off the list… Have 20-week ultrasound and find out gender – Done! Read books about baby care, labor, child development, etc. – In progress Create a will – Still need to think about […]


We made our first gigantic space-eating educational toy purchase today!  A Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumper.   I have a friend whose daughter loved hers, and she passed along an ad on Craigslist when she saw one for sale.  I have to say – it’s pretty impressive.  It was maybe a little dirtier than […]


28 weeks

by Chelsea Myers on September 28, 2012

Welcome to the 3rd trimester!   This week the baby is the size of an eggplant. He can blink his eyes and is adding more neurons and body fat week by week.  He’s supposed to have flipped over so that his head is aimed down now, but I still feel like his kicks are coming […]

If I had a million dollars…

by Chelsea Myers on September 26, 2012

I would spend it on trendy luxury baby furniture. Like this Joya Rocker: So sleek and modern, and I love the white.  At $900, I’m sure that material is washable, right? Or a neon-green designer high chair.  Smashed peas will blend right in. Maybe a sweet orange baby seat that you can buy with a clear […]


Diaper Dilemmas

by Chelsea Myers on September 25, 2012

Sooooooo… I need advice. I want to use cloth diapers* for the baby after he’s born, but I’m torn on whether it makes more sense for us to buy diapers and do the dirty work ourselves or to use a diaper service. Here’s what I see as the pros and cons are for each type: […]


I slept in until thelastpossiblesecond this morning and it’s been busy…  This song should be stuck in everyone’s head at least once today. You’re welcome.  See you tomorrow.


Getting there

by Chelsea Myers on September 23, 2012

We made some major progress getting things unpacked and organized this weekend.  Daniel was actually the super hero who made all of this possible: He got our TV* mounted above the fire place, did some surgery to the back of a bookcase so it could hold all of our electronic gadgetry, and lugged allllll the […]


Let’s Waste Time

by Chelsea Myers on September 22, 2012

So I’ve just spent far far far too much time playing around with this Baby Morpher gizmo that will allow you to mash up two photos to determine what the resulting baby would look like. I quickly realized that Daniel has no good photos of him alone so I decided to go with bad ones of […]


27 weeks

by Chelsea Myers on September 21, 2012

27 weeks down, 13 (or so) to go.  Pregnancy math is total voodoo, but I’m three months out from my due date (12/21) so I can say I’m now officially 6 months along with one week left to go in the second trimester.  I like the way my belly has gotten large enough that it […]
