Mid Week Confessions

Happy Wednesday!  Lets confess shall we?

- Sawyer loves electrical cords.  So much, that we have designated an extension cord for him to play with and have even uttered the phrase "here, play with your extension cord, that will make you happy."  We even brought it with us on our trip to the Oregon coast.

*before you go calling CPS on us, the extension cord is not plugged in and he is supervised while playing with it

- We went to Costco on Saturday at what should have been the time when Sawyer ate solids.  His lunch became food samples at Costco including chicken sausage, cheese, yogurt, and chili.  Plus the Cheerios I had brought in my purse.

- At Costco, I found Coach sunglasses for $64.  I totally don't need sunglasses but anything Coach for $64 is a bargain and a half.  Plus they are purple.  And have a cool case.  And they are Coach!

- I was totally convinced that I would get Sawyer to say mama before dada.  I failed.  Sawyer is now saying "da da da da" all day long.  He says it most to Charlie.  So unless he things Charlie is his daddy then I'm pretty sure he's not associating it with Andrew.  So there may still be hope.  If I say "ma ma ma ma" to him he just laughs at me.

- I'm nearing the point of wanting to be done breast feeding.  I'm going to stick it out until he turns a year but I'm pretty excited to get my boobs back...and not feel like a cow attached to a milking machine every time I pump.

That's it for this week.  Don't forget to go visit E, Myself and I and read everyone else's confessions.

Sawyer is 10 months old tomorrow!  I can't believe it.  We are already making plans for his first birthday.  Will hopefully have an update up by the weekend.


  1. I have a 10 1/2 month old who is obsessed with all cords. My mother is so afraid he is somehow going to wrap one around his neck and choke somehow. Being the loving daughter I am, I love to send her pics of him playing with cords :) This will come back to bite me when he tears up one of my chargers!

    I feel you on being done with breastfeeding! I had high hopes of making it to a year, but my supply has dropped so much it's not going to happen. It is such a strange mix of relief and guilt to start the weaning process! Good luck when you do it!

    Keep up the "ma ma" work. My son actually said it before "da da," but he yelled it at me when I took away something he shouldn't have! Makes a mom feel REAL good! :)

    Stopping by from EM&I!

    1. Glad I'm not the only mom who lets their kid play with a cord. I love that you send pictures to your mom!

  2. Oh my gosh, I LOVE that Sawyer has his very own cord... That is too funny!!!

    I also love that I get to keep up with you and your cute family through the blog world... So proud of you and your blogging!

    Good for you on the breastfeeding - I totally know the "cow" feeling. (We actually called it quits at 10 months, so you're already doing better than me.)

  3. found your blog from e,myself and I and I almost spit out my pepsi reading about the extension cord. That is the BEST thing I have read all day! Who would call CPS over that? I'd invite you for a playdate, cord and all :p

    1. Thanks Lauren. Glad I could give you a laugh today. I'm sure that the extension cord will have a name some day...
