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 7 months GB @ohbotherblog So I'm a little late, but on October 23, GB hit the 7 month mark.

Weight: My scale is broken and says I weigh 20 pounds less than I do (I refuse to fix it, of course), so I really don't know. I'm guessing he's close to 17 pounds right now. Just about into size 3 diapers.

Likes: being held, eating, being “hugged” by his sister, flying in the air, being tickled, trying to sit up, belly raspberries, grabbing his feet, "talking," grabbing at everything, trying to steal people's food

Dislikes: Being hangry (hey, I feel you, kid). That's really about it. He is showing some signs of teething but generally doesn't seem to be too upset about it yet.

Eats: This guy eats like a champ. We just moved up to level 2 foods--combination stuff--and there's nothing he really doesn't like. He tries to steal the spoon and feed himself and often beats on his high chair tray in approval.

Sleeps: Like a boss. 8:30 or 9pm to about 7:30am, or whenever his sister runs in his room and wakes him up (argh!)

Accomplishments: He's allllllmost sitting up unassisted. He talks a lot and has kind of said, "Dada" (grrr!). Smiling (a lot!), chuckling, rolling over like crazy, grabbing toys, kicking like a soccer player, putting his Nuk in his mouth. 

He's my sweetheart.
