Planning Cooper’s First Bday Party

So far I know I want his baby friends and our adult friends at the same party. There may be beer. There may be grub food. That’s about as much as I’ve come up with.

Need help thinking of ideas! Anyone on Tumblr have any ideas or recommendations they want to share? An acquaintance of mine is having all their guests share a memory of her baby to be turned into a keepsake given to her when she turns 16. Cute, right?

Just waiting to get out of this creative slump I’m in. Brainstorm time! His bday is in February!

Popsicles & lowering crib.

So Coop pulled himself up to standing in his crib. After I sat him back down bc I needed to finish cleaning, he stood right back up and this time thought it’d be a good idea to climb over the crib rail (would be the first time). He got as far as scaring me with his foot off the mattress before he smacked his tooth on the rail… called advice nurse & she recommended a popsicle to reduce swelling… Alright. Pretty sure Coop just figured out how to get sugar from me. Coop is ok. Happy. Sugar. Lowering crib tonight.

Seriously… how much more can this kid pull on my heart strings?

Just overheard Cooper giggling in his sleep. Thought he was awake, but nope. Probably just dreaming about monkeys & how much he’s got me wrapped around his little finger…manipulative lil dude.

Guh. Too cute. I’m in for it.

Late Night Parenting Math

Date night + nursing mom = pumping at 2am

Pumping at 2am + tired mom = spilled milk

Spilled milk + ‘f*ck it, I’m going to bed’ mom = milk stains

Milk stains + ‘oh that’s right time for bed must stop doing stupid math’ = anxious OCD dad

Anxious OCD dad + tired mom = date night

Consider yourself educated. Good night.

Recipe for sweet smelling baby poop

Feed 1/4 cup rice cereal with milk to hungry baby. Puree banana and cinnamon to a smooth consistency. Feed to the still hungry never full piggy-hoggy baby.

Let it sit overnight in Chubalub belly for 12 hours. Change diaper. Voila. Banana bread.
