Soy Formula and Mayonnaise

So apparently the sleep fighting was actually an intolerance to milk products. Luckily I had a can of soy formula on hand and all seems to be calming down. Audrey has slept more today than in a really long time, so that's a good sign.

My days are filled with scrapbooking, Internet surfing and laundry - well, that and taking care of an infant. Nothing too exciting going on. With the gas issues we've been having the car seat hasn't been a pleasant place, so we've not ventured out much. However, since things seem to bet getting better, I plan on doing a little bit more this week.  I've actually got a babysitter for tomorrow afternoon and I'm getting out and doing some "mommy" things, i.e. eyebrow wax, grocery shopping and a visit to the vet for the dog. Not sure what the rest of the week will hold, but we'll find something fun to get into!

Well, that's all for now. Except one last thing (just for fun). So, on my Facebook I've started documenting my "new mommy fails." These are things that I've done as an inexperienced new mommy that are embarrassing and/or have quite a humorous tint to them. So far they've included: dropping a pacifier into the toilet, going without deodorant and making "baby noises" at the dog. Today's fail however, took the cake and had me laughing so hard I was crying. I'll let you take a look at it and then I'll explain.

That is mayonnaise on my daughter's head.  Here's the story. My family eats pear halves with mayonnaise (don't knock it till you've tried it) and I just so happened to have some pears in the pantry and decided that today would be the perfect day to enjoy some. So, I got them out and put mayo on them, got my fork and was just about to dig in when I heard rumbling from Audrey's crib. So, being the attentive mommy that I am, I grabbed her pacifier and headed that way. Got to the crib and bent down to put the pacifier in her mouth (totally forgetting that I'm holding a plate)....PLOP...pears and mayonnaise fell into the crib and the above picture shows the results. I still can't think about it without laughing. Ha! She didn't find it quite so funny, but I told her that one day, she will. 


  1. That is so hilarious! I'm glad it wasn't the plate!

  2. Too funny. I can just see it happening. My poor little pie!

    Amen on what your mom said. :)
