Monday

Monday, Monday

Guess who had their first taste of solid food this Saturday morning! We had the camera poised and ready to go. Please do focus only on the babe and not on her robe-clad, unshowered mama. But that's just how we roll on the weekends. :)


She took a 1:3 ratio mixture of Earth's Best oatmeal cereal to milk. Loved it! Soon we'll try our hand at purees. I have my baby food maker ready to roll.

Later that afternoon, she attended a friend's first birthday party. Oh my goodness, there was a baby ball pit, and she was in LOVE with it. Hellllooooo, Santa gift! I've already added the inflatable pool and the 100-pack of balls to my Amazon list of Christmas gifts to buy. We aren't buying her a lot of gifts this year, but at $37 for this combo is a pretty good price, and especially since we can get double-duty and use the inflatable pool in the summer.



She ended up starting her afternoon nap earlier than we expected, so we got her home as quickly as we could to try to keep that nap going. 


Later that afternoon, I scooted out for a quick bit to check out the Vintage Charlotte pop-up market at The Fillmore. Ian stayed with Camille, and it was nice to walk around the market for an hour without having to push a bulky stroller around. We hung out with friends that night until it was time to get home and feed the baby and heat up some leftover pizza. Crazy Saturday night :)

Sunday consisted of a lot of laundry! After some quick trips to Homegoods and Michaels, I stayed home with the babe while Ian went to the Panthers game with a buddy. Camille took short naps and I used some of that time to work on her baby album and fold clothes.

The most exciting load of laundry that I did (never let me say that phrase again) was our new flannel sheets. Per Elise's recommendation, I bought us some flannel sheets and could not resist the scottie dog pattern. And you can't beat $24.99 for king-sized sheets. Plus, FREE shipping now! They are now on our bed and our first time sleeping on them will be tonight. I can't wait to call it a night and snuggle up in bed with a book.
Just bought these, king size for $24.99, can't beat it!

That's about all that's going on here. I am excited to share my Christmas wishlist tomorrow and hope you'll link up with us for the My Favorite Things linkup ... if you missed the details, catch 'em here.

  11. Both of my flannel sheet sets are from target and they are the best! I've had mine for several years- they hold up well, are warm, cozy and an unbeatable price. Might have to snag another pattern this year!

  12. Oh my goodness- she did GREAT with that food! Baby ball pit is on our wish list too- we have friends that have one that's kind of meshy and "enclosed" so the kid can go nuts with the balls and it doesn't go flying all ove rthe room!

  21. Camille is so sweet eating her oatmeal! Love it:) I remember when Caleb had oatmeal for the first time, and his reaction was so similar - he loved it, and was trying to eat the spoon as well!

    Definitely going to need an update on those sheets. Just $25 for a king? Amazing. If they are as cozy as they look, I'll be tempted to buy them in every pattern!!! We have one set and LOVE them, but they are getting pretty old and worn out so it may be time to update!

  24. Oh my goodness! She was so ready for that food. :) That is the sweetest little video! Sounds like y'all had a great weekend. Purees are so much fun, too. We used a food processor, and baby girl loved the foods! I also just used an ice tray to portion out the food, too. Easy peasy! She would eat two cubes of whatever we made after each milk session. ;) Happy eating, sweet C!

  26. Aww, yay Camille! That video was just too cute. She did such a great job! It'll be fun with the purees too! Since we started with oatmeal, we tried sweet potatoes and peas. I'm waiting to see that disgusted face.. but she loves everything! She must be her daddy's daughter for sure... haha. :)

  28. I can check if the ornaments are cheaper here for you, if you want... I mean I do live in the land from which they come!

  29. Baby ball pit -- fabulous idea! I just ordered the set you suggested for my granddaughter for Christmas -- it's the perfect gift! I think she'll enjoy it a lot more than the U Fund we're setting up for her...at least for the time being!
