I don’t have a lot of time to write/blog as you can tell by the length of time between now and my last post. Motherhood is hard (more on that at a later date) and I work my consulting job full-time from home while taking care of Lincoln. But! It is the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done and I’m so thankful to be able to raise him and support my family. With that said, I’m currently stuck under him. Every time I try to move this sleeping baby wiggles and wakes. NOPE! You need to sleep kid, these teeth your brewing are exhausting to all of us. So here I am, stuck under my son in the glider.
(Oh I should mention, Lincoln Michael Graziano was born on August 16, 2016. 8lbs 2oz, 20 inches, giant head. He is the greatest thing to ever happen to us. We are butting up against that year warranty on babies, so, I guess, we’ll keep him.)
I recently saw an article (I’ll link it if I can remember where I saw it) about useless stuff you don’t need when you have a baby. I had over half the items and I completely disagree. Sure, you don’t NEED a wipe warmer, but I also didn’t NEED blood-curdling baby screams at 2 am from cold wipes on his tiny baby booty. Baby got back and that tush likes his wipes warm. What else… oh! Bath thermometer. Ok first, I like a super hot shower. Super hot water isn’t good for bebe. I’m also incapable of feeling if something is too hot- my mom and I have “asbestos hands” we can touch and grab super hot stuff without issue. So the little whale thermometer bobs up and down in the bath so I don’t scald my kid. This seems reasonable to me.
Here are something’s you ABSOLUTELY DO NEED once your squish is out of that blob stage known as the 4th trimester.
