Now the problems-
- My internet is having some issues, only certain sites come up and others act like they are loading but never open. It's very strange. Anyone smart enough to give me an idea on why this would happen or what to do? I haven't been on myspace in days- (gasp)!!
- Eli has lost all interest in sleep. Naps- maybe a couple 20 mins ALL DAY. Bedtime- sleeping baby goes into the crib and either wakes up immediately or sleeps 20-30mins then wakes up. Repeat!! It is not working for me at all. I can put him in the Mei Tei but there is only so much I can do standing up and walking around for 2 hours- doesn't really work for me! He is finally asleep in the swing after a 30min nap this morning and then crying/fussing in my arms for 30mins from exhaustion- before FINALLY giving in. Of course soon he'll have to be woken up to go get Rowan.
-Rowan gets called a girl WAY too much, it is really starting to bother me. Boys can have curly hair- OK- I don't perm his hair it is just curly
Tip to people who can't tell if the the kid is a boy or girl- (it is usually ok to ask if it's a baby)
instead of asking the parent what is your daughter/son's name or saying is "it" a boy or girl- ask the child "what is your name?" This may help although I understand the child may have a name like Rowan that you have never heard of or maybe you know a girl named that so you are even more confused. So how about you look at their clothes. Now I don't like to do the whole gender thing with clothes, I think boys can wear pink and girls can wear tractor shirts. BUT most of the time boys are dressed like boys and girls are dressed like girls.
I actually like the color purple, but probably will never put it on my boys (in public) because I am so tired of the girl comments.
Sorry for that little ramble there, so anyway I was tired of the comments so what else could I do, but cut his hair!! Yes I cut it myself. I'm actually surprised at how well it turned out, especially since my only experience with hair cutting was when I was 20 and I sat on the floor
in front of my full length mirror and just started cutting- that did not end well- luckily I had some nice friends who fixed me up!I don't think it looks too bad, but I think I need to take a little more off the top. I will try to get some more pics posted, but I almost think the cut itself is kind of "girly"- I know exactly what i was trying to get a way from!
Wanna see why that bear is so close to Rowan's back?
