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 two month birthday, GB

Gatsby is two months old @ohbotherblog At 2:31 pm yesterday, Mr. Gatsby (GB) turned two months old. Here's a snapshot of the little man:

Weight: according to my unofficial stand-on-the-scale-without-him-then-stand-on-the-scale-with-him method, he weighs about 11.5-12 lbs.

Likes: being held, milk, his sister, sitting outside

Dislikes: not being held

Eats: Every 3-4 hours

Sleeps: This past week we ranged between 6-hour chunks of sleep at night to 2-hour chunks of sleep. So, we're still not there yet. During the day, he has more alert time 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.

Places Visited: Turkey Hill Experience, various parks, Second Saturday on the Square

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.
