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

Holy crap, 11 months.

Weight: I honestly have no idea and I'm not about to wake him up to weigh him. Maybe 21 lbs?

Likes: Eating! open mouth kissing (with tongue!), climbing up the steps, pulling himself up on everything, stealing things from his sister

Dislikes: Not being paid attention to, being scolded ("Don't bite" is the magic trigger that makes him cry)

Eats: Everything and a lot of it. At this point it seems like he's over his bottle (thank god for no more formula)--he wants ALLTHEFOOD! I've been trying to nurse first thing in the morning and last thing at night, but he's now disinterested in my boobs :(

Sleeps: A great sleeper--goes down and stays down no problem. Two naps a day.

Teeth: Five

Accomplishments: Climbing! Pulling up on everything, standing, waving, clapping, high fives, mimicking, screeching, "So big!"

He'll be walking before too long!
