Lesson # 2 - Not all babies need to sleep a lot

Wooohooo! What a morning! Who thought that at 10 months a baby would go to bed at 8 and be getting up at 5:30 am! With only two 45 minute naps all day! Oh, and did I mention she is still getting up at least once a night too! Man, am I sleepy. I think I have been in a daze since she was born.

To update you on my exhaustion, Emelia was a colicky baby. She would start screaming around 10 pm and go until about 4 am...straight. This started the very first night she came home from the hospital and lasted the first two months. We finally figured out a way to sooth her to sleep at around two months old. A HAIR DRYER! That's right, I had a hair dryer with a cold setting, and turning it on low would instantly dry her tears! So I MacGyvered a shoe lace and the hair dryer so it would hang outside the crib and MAGIC! She instantly started sleeping 2-3 hours at a time!

So I then began trying to make up for lost time in the sleep department. Keep in mind she was only taking three 30 minute naps at this point as well. And I want to know who came up with the "sleep while the baby sleeps" things? Easier said than done my friend! Especially being overly tired and having a baby only sleep 30 mintues long.

Fast forward by about 7 months and things are getting better. She is sleeping longer at night, but I had no idea some babies could sleep smaller amounts. I had this image in my head of babies passing out for hours and hours, all day long! I don't know who put it there or why, but it was there. Silly me! Too many baby shows during pregnancy I suppose.

I am sure those extra hours she isn't sleeping helped contribute to her mobility and walking at 8 1/2 months, so I guess it is a blessing in disguise...a baggy eye disguise. I love Emelia to death...she is my world! But I totally wish my world contained more sleep :)

Lesson #1 - Babies should not play with cell phones

Well, my darling Emelia decided to drop my cell phone into the dog's water dish. What to do? Cell phone does not want to turn on and I am feeling completely abandoned by the outside world now. What did we do before cell phones?! I know I didn't have one in high school...only the old school pager for me. So how did I stay in contact with my friends? How did they know what I was doing via facebook via cell phone accessed internet? How the world changes so quickly. Not only with technology, but in life. Thus we come full circle back to can she be turning one next week?!

What is Etsy? Well, if you have never visited this fantastic site for buying and selling handmade goods you should go! Not only is Poopie Pastries on there selling diaper cakes and confections, but so are artists, jewelers, designers, and so many more. I got the most fantastic headbands from BCharmer, found a beautiful necklace at KGarner Designs, some classy clutches at JPatPurses, and an adorable monkey wall graphic for my daughters nursery at EllyNelly. If you have any need for yourself or a gift I highly recommend checking out Etsy!

Not only do they have well-made,boutique quality items, but they are also unique...your recipient will definitely be glad to not be getting three of the same candles and seven of the same lamps at your next party!

What are Diaper Cakes Anyway?

Hmmm...diapers, which aren't very appealing to the tastebuds, and cake, which is absolutely delicious and could be eaten on a daily basis. What are these things?

Well, diaper cakes are an awesome baby gift! They are cakes that are made out of diapers...a lot of diapers. They also have receiving blankets, minky baby blankets, and bath products. Pretty much some of the most important items a new or expecting mother could want in a chic little package.

Why so many diapers you may ask? Why are they one of the most important gifts a mommy or daddy could receive? On average a baby will go through 400-500 diapers in the first six weeks of life! Forget registering for pacifier clips and nursing covers; diapers should be at the top of the list. But who wants to give ugly packs of diapers at a baby shower? No one!

Diaper cakes are fabulous and functional. Check out my shop at for a variety of sizes and colors!
