Diaper Derby Video from 2012

Hi! Right now, the baby and I are at the Diaper Derby! Let’s hope she’s crawling like the wind, not howling like the wind! 🙂

Also, someone sent me this video from the 2012 Diaper Derby (from a different yet also nearby-ish mall). Check it out, it’s adorable!

And if you don’t want to watch for very long, skip the first 75 seconds, it’s the babies “warming up.”

Enjoy! And I’ll be back next week with the baby’s first race report!

What was your favorite moment from the video? I love the “tough guy” going for the bottle and the girl with the little, top pony tail who scoots.

 

 

How We’re Adapting to the Baby

It sure is interesting to have a brand new human being in the house. T’s gone back to work and I’m still on maternity leave (because my company rocks). And we’re getting used to the middle of the night feedings and the entire afternoon sway fests, but how are the cats dealing with the change? After all, they never asked for this little whiner who takes all of the attention from their people and created chaos in their formerly quiet and mellow house.

Well, our male cat, Chewie is completely unphased, he’s still getting in his cuddles:

2 days after coming home from the hospital (T's actually awake here... I don't know why he pretends to sleep in photos)

Also, he enjoys smelling her and has occasionally licked the top of her head or her feet (he’s named Chewie for a reason! He tastes EVERYTHING!)

But our female cat, Prissy Pants, took a little longer to warm up to the baby. She hid under the dining room table for 2 weeks after we came home from the hospital. But she has warmed up to the baby and will lay next to her and has resumed her typical napping places of next to me on the couch or next to me in bed:

Don't let that face fool you, she was loving those snuggles

Also, she’s claimed all of the baby’s things (except the toys, oddly enough):

I think we’re all starting to get along with the baby!
