SIDS

Friday is national SIDS awarness day......

I found this list of ways to reduce the risk of SIDS and thought I would share it. I was fortunate enough to go to many classes while I was pregnant and have a family who is very informed about reducing the risk but I know not everyone does so here is the list:

1. Back to sleep- NEVER place a baby in a crib on their stomach!

2.Use a firm sleep surface

3. Keep soft objects and loose bedding out of the crib (blankets, stuffed animals ect..)

4. DO NOT USE BUMPERS (if you choose to do so..use breathable ones only!)

5.
Do not smoke during pregnancy - Do not let your infant be around smoke at all!

6.
A separate but proximate sleeping environment is recommended

7.
Consider offering a pacifier at nap time and bedtime

8.
Avoid overheating- Install a ceiling fan in the babies room. Put it on low.

9.
Encourage “tummy time” when the infant is awake and observed.

SIDS is the #1 cause of death in infants from one month to one year

letter to my sweet baby

pretty sure that weird mouth im making is saying "HELLO" more on the O side


Dear Miss Lane Train,
You are almost TEN months old! Every day you seem more and more grown up. I love the way you talk and the words you say, ah da! ah da! (all done) doh! doh! (dog) and sometimes I swear you are speaking Japanese:)

You keep mommy and daddy on our toes, you are interested in shutting doors right now which is freaking adorable! Except when you shut it and sit right behind it so I cant open it then its scary!

You are the most beautiful  baby girl I have ever laid my eyes on. I love you so much it hurts. I try so hard to absorb every little detail of every day with you because I don't want to forget anything, I don't want to forget how funny it is when dive into my chest letting me know you want to nurse, or the funny way you shift your hips from side to side to crawl, or the sweet way you sleep with your arms straight down at your sides with your palms face up.

Some days I'm tired and some days I may seem distracted, but always know I love you baby
Love,
Mommy

embarassment

Knew********

i cant belive i did that.........

I have to make a conscious  effort to make sure I am using the correct know, now, knew, new, and i didnt preiview before i published

boo

hello again

My daughter is HILARIOUS! This morning she started fake laughing! oh my god I was cracking up! I am not sure how to explain it, it was sort of like 'heh' 'heh' and she was smiling and throwing her head back hahahahaha im not sure if that is an imitation of me or what but it was too damn funny! She also started kissing this week, and a few times this morning she just came up to me and kissed me! Then she does this cute little bashful smile after BAH she melts my heart!

When it is just Lane and I hanging out I put a show on tv from Netflix usually a childrens show but she couldn't care less about whats on she doesn't even glance at it, its more for me to not go insane with the silence. BUT our internet is not working on the PS3 so no Netflix, weeeeeelll I put on the first Harry Potter movie and Lane watched some of it! Not for very long but she occasionally watched it! Oh I am so proud!

She has also outsmarted me. ok not me but my "baby-proofing". I put up a black piece of fabric around the tv stand and  it worked really well.........for a month. Now my curious little George has found out she can just go over to the side and their is an opening!

Yup she outsmarted me. She is the most curious baby I know! I think she has her daddys perfect eyesight becuase she can find everything! The other day she saw a dog across the street and started saying "doh" "doh!" I couldn't believe it! It was really far away and it was a big black dog and she has never seen a big black dog but she sure new what it was!

Well im off to relax during nap time:)
