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 one month, GB

Gatsby is one month old @ohbotherblog At 2:31 pm today, Mr. Gatsby will officially be one month old. Here's a snapshot of the little man:

Nicknames: GB (from Holdy), G, Stinky (from me)

Weight: according to my unofficial stand-on-the-scale-without-him-then-stand-on-the-scale-with-him method, he weighs about 10 lbs.

Likes: being held, milk, nipples (mine)

Dislikes: not being held

Tolerates: the swing, the car seat, the Boba carrier, the Moby wrap, his sister's "affection"

Eats: whenever he wants, but generally every 2-3 hours during the day, cluster feeding during his fussy "Witching Hour" from about 6-10 pm, every 2-3 hours at night

Sleeps: he has more alert time now but he generally takes a 1-2 hour nap in the morning, a solid 3-4 hour nap in the afternoon, on-and-off between fussing in the evening, and then in 2-3 hour chunks at night (sometimes he gives me 4 hours, woo hoo!)

Places Visited: Central Market York, Gymboree, CoWork 155, foodstruck, Target, the grocery store

Because I really boned up Holden's monthly photos by not showing her sitting in a chair or something to give perspective, I'm going to try a bit harder this time around. The adorable month tie stickers are from Bump2Baby Stickers on Etsy.
