Bad habits with creative solutions!

So.. as I have talked with my friends I have found that most "first time" moms make the same mistake I am making right now! Holding my baby ALL THE TIME! I'm just so in love with her I can't put her down.. well now I'm getting to the point where I want to get things done and she is used to me holding her. Its time to break the habit! So I started putting her in this sling as I walk around the house to get things done. Well sometimes that's even annoying so I decided to hang it up from the boppy over the recliner to make her "feel" like she is being held!! ha ha. I even got a good laugh outta that one! It worked... she stayed asleep!

Awwww, that's so sweet! Way to go Natalie! She looks so cute all curled up in there.
I miss my kids being young enough for me to pull little sneaky tricks like that and them not catching on. Oh the joys of them getting older.

That is hilarious! Griff never cared if he was held or not, thank goodness. BUT I am sure not all of my babes will be this easy so I am scared! I have gotten so spoiled with him.

I loved looking through your blog! All the photos are just beautiful. We never took professional pictures just because we keep on postponing it. We always say we are going to get done later...now I'm more inspired. Although I don't we are as beautiful as you guys so ours we'll not be so pretty. A super late congratulations on the baby!!!!

Oh what us Mom's won't do for a little sanity. Do what ever you have to, to get things done, and when your done; love on her like there's no tomorrow. Babies are only small and cuddle for such a short time. You NEED to enjoy it while you can, and then when she's old enough to now she's taking advantage of a good situation, stop. But for now, I DO NOT believe you can spoil a baby! She is so sweet!!

Incase Josh is nice enough to work an extra day, I posted the site, for those custom bags, on my blog! It's a fun site. You get to pick your own materials and the bag design you want, they make it, and then ship it right to you. SO FUN!
