FYI, the fussiness has been greatly helped by changing from tap water to nursery water in her formula. And this... This lovely, wonderful, magical machine should have been purchased the moment she arrived. The MamaRoo is not a normal bouncer or swing. It has more natural motions and white noise that Eleanor LOVES. It's pricey, but it was 100% worth every penny. I really love holding my baby and I also love wearing her (it's fabulous for our bonding and I wouldn't trade it for anything), but sometimes a momma needs to put the baby down for just a bit.
One of Dad's dogs died last week and that meant that Dash, the dachshund, was left alone. I thought we all agreed that finding him a different home would be best. I took him to the vet on Monday morning, had his eye infection treated, yearly shots, and an otherwise healthy bill of health. I put him on Facebook and tagged my brothers and their wives and by the next morning I had a happy home lined up for him. I went to Grandpa's that morning and this is what I found...
I hosted a dinner party on Tuesday evening for one of Drew's coworkers from Canada and the newest person he's hired to be on his local team (and that man's wife & baby). I felt like quite a woman as I wore my baby and prepared dinner.

The sign of a seasoned daddy... Uncle Kyle can successfully snuggle & comfort Eleanor while still playing video games.
Mac has claimed a perch on the stairs where he can keep an eye on everything. I think it's funny.
And finally, rocking the zebra pajamas
