Parent Confessions!

I usually always hold Adalyn during her naps to extend naptime. I'll fully admit that I love (and NEED) those breaks. Plus it's sweet cuddle time with my little nugget. Win win situation.

My latest guilty pleasure is watching the Kardashians during said nap times. I can't help it. I just can't.

One time last month, I let Adalyn fall out of her swing. I was standing right next to her, literally, and it happened in a flash. She cried for about 20 seconds and then was all smiles. I never told anyone except Mark; I was ashamed.

I use that Munchkin baby masher gadget to occupy Adalyn while I get things done. Today, a chunk of banana in the mesh bag won me 30 minutes to order 292 photos from Shutterfly. Score!

I may or may not often take bites of Adalyn's baby food. Who knew that Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal or Banana Pear Oatmeal could be so good?!

When Adalyn wakes up at the crack of dawn, I sideline nurse her (is that what it's called?) and don't move a muscle in hopes that she falls back asleep for a while. It always works.

I am too attached to my baby to leave her in the church nursery. Sorry, but this deployment has resulted in Adalyn and I forming a tight bond and are very attached. She would do great in there, as she will let anyone hold her. But me? I would be missing her so much that I probably couldn't concentrate on the sermon. Don't judge.

Ahh, now that feels better!

  1. We believe in FIC's and having your babe with you through every aspect of worship. That's why E's first visit to the nursery was at 11.5 months! And it was only because he wants to play during the sermon because he doesn't understand to be quiet yet. :) So don't feel bad about keeping her with you! It's good!!
