Alright Mommies, I Need Suggestions!

Remember an older blog post I wrote that was about Alette and her magic tricks, well it's starting to drive me bonkers! Alright, so Alette has a tendency of doing 90 degree turn while she's sleeping. This has only become a problem as of recently because she is now long enough to KICK the rails of her crib when her head is against the other rail. Now, you probably are wondering what the problem is and the problem is this, she wakes herself up (either because it hurts when she kicks the rails or because she makes so much racket how could anyone sleep through it) therefore she wakes us up! I'm not sure what we can do because us going in there to correct her from sleeping that way would wake her up too. SO, does ANYBODY have any suggestions on what we could do? Maybe this is what I will have to live with, but we were so spoiled having a baby that slept through the night and I want it that way again! Below are some pictures incase you don't know what I'm talking about.


This is the way we put her to bed.


This is the way we find her, notice her little feet against the rails.

I decided to put this one because she's so irresistibly adorable!
(I know it's upside down, but that's the charm of it)

Bald is Beautiful

Lately, we have been getting a lot of comments on how cute our baby boy is. Normally, I would feel proud. There is one small problem though, Alette is not a boy! Alette has a little bald head and a black car seat. We got a black car seat hoping it would be unisex enough to where we can use it if we had a boy one day so I can see the confusion. Alette usually wears pink though and has a pink blanket so I still wonder why people think she is a boy. Alette is not ashamed of her baldness though, she told me in a recent conversation of ours that many beautiful women are bald. Have a look at these three beauties...

Granted Sinead O'Conner is a bit nuts a lot of people think she is beautiful. Demi Moore and Natalie Portman sport their scalps well. Even though I think Alette is a bald beauty I really do hope that one day her hair grows in. Not only do I want to learn how to do pig tails and braids, mostly I really just don't want her to end up looking like this...

Four Months and Growing!

My goodness! My little baby almost isn't a little baby! Alette turned 4 months on the 8th. I obviously knew she was going to grow, but I had no idea it would be this quickly and I also didn't think she was going to be so enormous (call me naive, I know Nick and I are slightly above average in height but since she was average when she came out I figured she would keep at that and MAYBE be a little bit above, but o was I wrong).

My Porcelain Doll

New Stats:

Weight: 17lbs
Height: 27"
She currently wears 6-9 month onesies

Alette can/ likes to:

- Roll over! She has rolled over twice just before hitting her 4 month marker (just by a couple days)
- Sit-up, she can't do it all by herself yet but she loves to be upright to see everything.
- Eats rice cereal, she was a little picky at first but she's getting use to it.
- LOVES standing!
- Still LOVES her baths, it's surprising what a little warm water can do to her mood!
- LAUGHS! I absolutely LOVE IT! I love when she does her funny little giggle.
- Lay in bed with her mommy and daddy. In the morning when I'm too lazy to get out of bed for good I go and get Alette when she wakes up and she'll lay beside us and talk up a storm. (She's probably telling us to get our lazy butts out of bed)
- Enjoys playing with her toys, she realized she can grab things!
- Likes it when daddy tosses her in the air.

She's the best thing since sliced bread!
