The Nursery is a Hoot

Literally too.  I am obsessed with owls.  Lucky for me, so is the rest of the world.  I have had no trouble whatsoever finding anything to do with owls.

James let me decorate the nursery any way that I wanted to, so I had to choose my beloved owls.

I am still in the process getting the nursery completed.  We still have to hang photos and get a bookshelf, etc.  But it has come along nicely I think.  I try to get Sophia excited about owls, but I don't really think she cares much at this point.  She will appreciate it once she gets a little older I'm sure.

For now, she is perfectly content sleeping right next to us in our room or should I say on mom or dad.

Works like a charm baby

Sophia is almost hitting her three week mark in a few days.  She is sweet as can be.  She really doesn't sleep much at all.....I guess I was thinking she would take a few naps during the day but she seems to fight the urge often.

My friend Sarah gave me a tip that she uses with her son, Tennyson.  She told me to wrap Sophia up tight and put her on the counter and run the water in the kitchen sink.  I hadn't tried this approach yet, but today I was all out of ideas to get her to calm down.

Sure enough, not even 5 minutes go by, and here is Sophia -

This may be a saving grace for James and I.....although I'm pretty sure our water bill is going to increase dramatically.
