Too soon?

How early can a child be taught to tell time?

Like 5 months old, right? Please say right.

Pretty please with cherries and sprinkles and hot fudge and hope on top.

I’m not above using a leash…

On overpriced dog toys that is! Have you had the displeasure of meeting Sophie The Giraffe?

She’s a $25 squeaky toy that’s made from the sap of the hevea tree.

And apparently baby crack. Seriously, babies adore this thing!

We love Sophie so much we have three. A teething ring for our house, one for the grandparents, and the large squeaky one.

If you’re really bad at math, or are my husband, especially let’s just say we have a few dollars tied up in doe eyed long neck. So you can understand that I live in a constant state of fear that Sophie will be lost.

The teething rings are awesome because they just hook onto a stroller toy and are free from any pint sized sticky fingers, but the original is a whole other story.

Back up off my Sophie!

Someone from my birth club asked about making a harness for Sophie, and once I looked them up on etsy I realized this was the perfect solution and a super easy craft project! Yay quick and easy!

Gather your supplies:

Expensive dog toy

Ribbon

Velcro

Scissors

Cut the ribbon to size, wrap it like the photos below and viola no grimemeister can take off with your Sophie.

Also your baby can’t make you fetch by throwing Sophie backwards in the middle of the crosswalk when the don’t walk hand is already flashing and your back already kills from lugging her for the preceding eight hours because she refuses to let you put her down for any naps.

Theoretically, of course.

I have a four month old…and a blog?!

I have a blog? Oh, yeah! I remember that thing! I also remember sleep, being able to eat a warm meal, peeing alone and taking showers longer than 4 minutes long.

Totally worth it though! Have you seen this super cutie? Let me brag for a few minutes here.

Really, Mom?

And the best news ever?

Thanks to the handsome man below I’m now a Stay At Home Mom!

Of course my main focus will be Aubrey, but I plan on using the time to cook, clean, craft and learning to be the best mom and wife I can possibly be.

All while living in the greatest city in the world, NYC! I’m loving life!
