The First Years Bottle Drying Rack

Disclosure: This post includes an Amazon affiliate link.

When we were selecting items for our baby registry, Hubster and I didn’t think that we would need a bottle drying rack.  We thought it would be a waste of counter space.  For the first two months, we used our regular drying rack for all of C’s bottles.  The problem was that there were always bottles occupying the drying rack, which didn’t leave any room for dishes.

5 Things You’ll Love About Pregnancy

1. It’s acceptable to wear stretchy pants on a daily basis.  Who doesn’t love the enveloping comfort of an elastic waistband?

2. You’ll be showered with gifts.  If you’ve been married, you might recall the joy of a gift registry.  You get to do that all over again – except this time you get to pick out all kinds of cute little clothes and accessories.

C is 3 Months Old Today!

My big 3-month-old :)

5 Things You’ll Never Miss About Pregnancy

1. The incessant need to pee.  Seriously, there were some days that I could have camped out in my bathroom.  But our bed didn’t fit.

2. Not being able to see your feet.  I don’t normally look down when I walk, but the ability to see your feet is sometimes very helpful in preventing stubbed toes…or when scaling a flight of stairs.

The Battle of the Nap

Two sides, equally strong-willed and determined, face off in an epic battle of sleep.  A refusal to give into slumber is met with an equal dedication to enforce the rules of nap-dom.  Screaming and a theatric conflict of wills ensue.  There can only be one victor.

Things C Has Learned This Week

1. To scream.  SCREAM.  He’s always been opinionated and gone “from 0 to 60″ in the blink of an eye, but now when he decides he wants something he starts to scream his little head off.  There’s no warning to it.  People who hear him might think he’s being tortured or something.

You May Look, But Don’t Touch!

It amazes me how babies bring out the best in most people.  Hubster and I smile with pride when someone comes up to look at C and comments on how cute he is.  I don’t even mind that it sometimes inconveniences me if I’m in a hurry.  But, today, a young man at Walgreens crossed the line.  He said, “Awww,” then came up and TOUCHED C’s belly.  Um…I don’t know you!  Get the heck away from my child!  My mind started racing as to what kind of disease this man potentially had, since he had a prescription in his hand.  Oy.
