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 three month birthday, GB

happy three month birthday, GB

At 2:31 pm today, Mr. Gatsby (GB) will be three months old. Here's a snapshot of the little man: Gatsby is three months old @ohbotherblog

Weight: 12 lbs., 6 oz. The pediatrician called him a "string bean" at last week's appointment. Pretty sure I was never ever considered a string bean.

Likes: being held, milk, his sister, sitting outside, watching the fan, watching mommy, when mommy makes crazy faces and voices, the baby gym

Dislikes: not being held, tummy time, riding in the car without a Nuk, not being paid attention to

Eats: Every 3-4 hours

Sleeps: Alert the media: we've had a few nights of 8 hours of sleep! (11a-6p). Usually it ranges between 6-8 lately. I'll take it!

Accomplishments: Smiling (a lot!), chuckling, rolled over from front to back several times, chewing on his hands, grabbing the rings in his baby gym, kicking like a soccer player.

Places Visited: The Maryland Zoo for Sissy's birthday, The Farm, Redeux Grand Opening

Also, this month's pics may look adorable, but I assure you, nothing in my life goes that smoothly. Here are some outtakes before "the talent" was given some milk from craft services.

Also, go ahead and check out the evidence that 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.
