We are attempting to make the transition to the crib. We are not co-sleepers, and Sophia does not sleep in our room, but she has been sleeping in her swing or bouncy seat since she was only a few days old. She loves (since the day she was born) to be held, rocked, and to be constantly moving. When I initially put her in her crib, she would move around and not be able to fall asleep, so I bought a bouncy seat - which worked...for some time. After a few weeks, when she was in her seat, she would fuss unless someone (me) was bouncing the seat. So - I caved, and bought a swing, which has been a total life-saver. She loves the swing, and is (most of the time) content when I put her in there. The swinging motion puts her (and keeps her) to sleep very easily - she currently sleeps 6-7 hours/night. Our doctor said it is completely safe to let her sleep in the swing, but I know she is eventually going to outgrow it and HAVE to sleep in her crib, so I am trying to make this transition a bit easier by starting this week. Right now, she is asleep in her crib, and has been for an hour and a half (hoping this works). Has anyone else experienced anything similar? Any tips for us?
I came across a great quote last night; I just love this. We could all use a small reminder now and then, and I felt this was a great way to kick off the week, no?
I made a trip to the nail salon this weekend, and was chatting with the girl who was doing my nails when she asked me my name. When I told her my name was Brooke, she got the most confused look on her face. She said, "Like 'broke'? Why would your father give you a name like that?" LOL. After I tried to explain that it was different, I just shrugged my shoulders and smiled.
I used to be a 'white wine only' type of girl, but have recently taken the plunge into the deliciousness they call red. I found a new favorite this weekend, and would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a sweet & smooth red wine. Bonus - only $14 a bottle!
I had to get a little dessert to go with it.
After church yesterday, the greatest surprise was waiting outside - a line of FOOD TRUCKS! I was so excited, starving, and made my way to the Mexican truck - 'Tamarindo.'
Mexican Coke - my favorite!
I ordered one fish taco, and one veggie taco. Both were delicious, but the veggie taco was out of this world! If you live in Orange County, I would definitely suggest stalking this food truck - the tacos are only $3.50! YUM. Find out more about Tamarindo HERE.
Random Monday thought, but how great do Barbara and Elizabeth look today? You can't see in the photo, but Elizabeth is wearing a great pair of burgundy skinnies with her leather top and dagger necklace, and Barbara is rocking that chevron, sequin sweater. Barbara is my all-time favorite.
Can you believe she is 83?! I hope I look that fab at 83.
