Cue sad trombone

by Chelsea Myers on October 27, 2013

Despite great weather and being in solid shape, I didn’t run the Haunted Hustle 1/2 marathon this morning. I felt just fine yesterday but woke up sick in the middle of the night. 1/3 bottle of Gatorade and 1/4 of Packing for Mars later and I’m feeling a bit better, but, although I’m disappointed about […]

Last night Scott figured out that the cup was good for something other than creating a fun splashy water feature on his high chair tray.   He was so proud of himself, and I’m happy for one more step closer to being free of my workday quality time with the electric baby*. *The pump PS – […]


Making his mark

Yesterday Scott commemorated his last full day in the baby room by pooping* on the floor.     *The “diaper leak” kind not the “pop a squat” kind.

To Zzzzzz or not to Zzzzzz

by Chelsea Myers on October 17, 2013

Sleep training.  That is the question. A little background: Scott started sleeping through the night (or at least from about 8pm to 5am) at about 3 months and that continued until he was about 7 months old.  At that time he started waking up more frequently – at least one additional time per night – […]

I took a bunch of clothes to ReThreads downtown and made $64 reselling stuff we haven’t worn in awhile. If you’re in the area and have clothes that are pretty nice but just hang around in your closet, check them out.  I’ve always had good luck with the State St. store.  Goodbye extra-small tops from […]

More fall

by Chelsea Myers on October 14, 2013


Such a fun time of year! We had a visit from Nana and Papa last week and we went over to State St. to watch the parade after dinner with Daniel’s cousin and his wife at Dotty Dumpling’s Dowry. It’s a pretty good hamburger spot by campus with lots of fun UW memorabilia on the […]


10 months old

Smiley Scott 2

As of 4:39 this afternoon (3:39 standard time).  We did a very unofficial weigh in this morning at a wiggly, wet-diapered 22lbs (read: I think an overestimate).  No doctor’s appointment until he turns a year old. Every time I look at the picture above I’m amazed at how much he looks like a little boy […]

Pumpkin patch

by Chelsea Myers on October 7, 2013


One of these pumpkins is not like the others: We still haven’t settled on a Halloween costume for Scott yet. If he’s crawling, I want to dress him in brown and have him wear this (not the dog, just the jousting knight): I wonder how long that would stay on?  Judging from his speed at […]
