Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

happy 8 months GB @ohbotherblog Look at me: I'm actually posting on the date! GB is 8 months today. (and yes, that is a bite mark in his tie sticker. All will be revealed).

Weight: An 16.9-pound turkey, wearing size 3 diapers.

Likes: being held, eating, being “hugged” by his sister, flying in the air, being tickled, belly raspberries, grabbing his feet, "talking," grabbing at everything, trying to steal people's food, "petting" Sally/grabbing at her fur, jumping in his bouncer

Dislikes: GB has been going through another I-want-to-be-held-all-the-time phase. He's recently shown the first signs of being "strange" (what they say around here when a baby cries when someone other than his mom holds him). He's often hangry. I believe he has some teeth pushing through.

Eats: Recently he's been doubling-down on the milk and not wanting to eat solids as much. I can't imaging why because spinach/pea/pear sounds delicious to me.

Sleeps: Like a boss. Rarely any issues in the sleeping department.

Accomplishments: Sitting up by himself... until he falls forward into a full-on Paschimottanasana position (Google it). He's starting to look like he wants to crawl. I swear he can mimic my hands drumming on the table (I'm talking matching rhythm and beats and using both hands). He waves hello and goodbye! I think he miiiiight be signing "milk."

Pretty much he's a genius.

Also, he's super curious and wants to put his hands on everything.

And then put that everything in his mouth.

Also, I love his crazy hair so much.
