It takes a special person to put up with my shenanigans. Lucky for me, I found and legally bound myself to a person crazy enough to deal with me for the rest of their life. Not only does he deal with me, he also goes along with most of my ridiculous ideas. Like that one time we camped out in Best Buy for three hours to buy a $200 phone.

Yep. Over the weekend I became the proud owner of an iPhone 6. I've had an iPhone since they came out years ago. Although I wasn't overly impressed with this most recent model, I knew I had to have it anyway. Plus, after destroying my iPhone 5 and using John's old 4 for a while, I was in desperate need of a fast phone with a great camera.

So we sat and we waited. And we waited. And waited. And walked around the store for a bit. And waited some more. For three whole hours. And then they finally called me! After a few signatures, a card swipe, and another signature, she was in my hands. My shiny new phone.

There are a few differences that will take some getting used to, like the power button now being located on the side instead of the top, but so far I'm loving my new phone. It is just a tad larger than I would like, but there really isn't much I can do about that. The camera is great and works fantastically for those low-light photos of Juli that I like to take first thing in the morning while she's still sleeping.

Anyone else upgrade over the weekend? Am I crazy for waiting so long?

Thanks bubby for trusting me with a device. I promise never to remove the case again. (:

Juliana - Two Months Old

My sweet baby girl is already two whole months old! While it's exciting that she is finally gaining a personality of her own, I'm constantly reminding myself that she'll never be this little again, and it breaks my heart!

At her two month well-baby check up, everything looked great! They kinda sucked about giving my her measurements, but I did catch that she is now 11 pounds 5 ounces. That's two whole pounds that she's gained in a month.

In the last month, Juli has learned to smile and will smile at us when we speak to her. During tummy time, she uses her arms to push herself up and look around. She's doing great when it comes to sleeping. Most days, I can put her to nap at around 10 am. She'll wake up for lunch and usually fall back asleep until dinner time. At night, she snuggles with me, and manages to sleep for most of the night.

For the next month, I want to try to hopefully get her switched into cloth diapers. I haven't been happy with how they fit up until now, but I think she might finally be big enough for them. I also need to switch out her clothes from the newborn stuff to the 0-3 and 3-6 month stuff. I can't believe my baby is growing so quickly!
