Margo Blue // 6 Months: The Teething Blues

  **This post is 3 months late!!! It’s been sitting in my “drafts” box fully written from 3 months ago, but has been without photos. So in an effort to just post it and move on, I gathered these images from my Instagram. Sorry if you’ve already seen these, but hey, it’s been months so you’ve probably forgotten all about them. So basically they’re new.** Margo’s 6th month can be summarized with one word: teething. If you’ve parented a teething {Read More}

Margo Blue // 5 Months: Smiliest baby on the block

Finally, I’m at a place where I want time to slow down. As you know (if you’ve been following the blog or my Instagram), Margo was a pill, a handful, a pain in the butt during her first few months and I wanted nothing more than to “fast forward” months down the road to where she’d be normal! Well I’m thrilled and relieved and thankful to say that we’re there. She’s such a treat! I literally kiss her, squeeze her {Read More}

Margo Blue // 4 months: So much for our groove!

Hey, 4 months! What the heck did I ever do to you?! Man, I was so stoked during our 3rd month over how we had found our groove. Naps were beautiful at 1.5 hours to 3 hours long for the first two naps of the day, and a swift 30 minute nap in the early evening. Night sleep was tolerable, sleeping a solid chunk ranging anywhere from 4-6 hours followed by a feeding, then a smaller chunk of 2-3 hours. {Read More}

Margo Blue // 3 months, we found our groove

*Enter huge sigh of relief, here!* Margo Blue turned 3 months old today and Mama finally got her groove back! Well, that may be a bit of an exaggeration because things aren’t as smooth as ice over here. Maybe a baby’s bottom, though. Baby’s skin is the best, right? But compared to how the first 2 months went for us, things are great! After going through such chaos and screaming and tears and confusion and stress, I really can’t complain {Read More}

Margo Blue // A hopeful 2nd month

(Hat: Pirates and Peonies) We had a hopeful 2nd month with Margo Blue, after having a difficult first month with her. Any improvement, no matter how small, was such a relief. We began to slowly see the chaos settle a bit. Each day, though still with its frustrations, began to gradually get easier. This change came to us immediately after beginning chiropractic care with her. I guess I should begin by saying that I had never heard of chiropractors providing {Read More}

Margo Blue // A difficult first month

(My Oompa-Loompa jaundice baby) What a difficult first month we had with our newest member of the family, Margo Blue. She had her dad and I looking like a couple of chickens running around with our heads cut off (nice visual). You would think we were first time parents with all of the confusion, stress, frustration and concern that we endured. Some of this you may already know about, if you had read my post on my struggle with the {Read More}
