Four Months Old and Monday Movie Review

Josie is 4 months old today! This picture was taken by Parker for a friend who wanted to see a facing shot of Josie in the Mei Tai Baby, but she looked so big, I thought I'd share it here. Yes, we still have our Christmas tree up and note the spit up stains on my shirt. Such is life with a four month old.

Monday Movie Review

3:10 To Yuma

I am not a Western gal. I don't really like Western music, I am not big on Western movies, but once in a while a song or a movie surprises me. This old version (the one with Glen Ford) of 3:10 to Yuma surprised me. Rob tells me there is a remake out, but I doubt I'd like it as well. I wasn't super happy to watch it, but at the end, I thought wow, that was good. I like the black and white and the fact that the shooting (three or four people get shot, I believe which is low for most movies these days) was not graphic. Call me old fashioned, but I really like movies where things are left to the imagination. The love scenes are about the eyes meeting, the looks, the touch, the dialog, and not the "action". The "bad guy" was somewhat likeable and the "good guy" was conflicted. I've said this many times before, but I like movies where things are not cut and dried and this movie isn't.

What a beautiful baby girl!

I'm trying to figure out how to get mine on my back in the mei tai! Looks easier than I think it will actually be. Seems like it would take 2 people!

Thanks! It is not hard at all, but I do suggest people having a spotter for the first couple times. I put Josie on my back in a wrap or MT while I cook. I'm in C-U if you would like me to show you some time. I usually tie the bottom around my waist while sitting on the couch and and she is sitting on the MT, then just bring the top straps up and tie and go. For older kids it is easier (if they are up for being on your back) and you can just bend over a bit and put them on. Practice is all it takes. Good luck!

She is getting so big - what a cutie.

Wow - Josie is getting so big! I had to laugh at the spit up comment. Darren was just wondering the other day when he would be able to leave the house with a "clean" shirt on! LOL

Just when I thought I might be able to wear nice clothes again, I got pregnant with Josie. Oh well, it is worth it.
