Five Favorites

I love me a good link-up! Such a fun way to find and connect with other blogs. Linking up with Hallie at Moxie Wife for Five Favorites this week...

1. Can we just take a minute and talk about how obsessed I am with this song??? Seriously. So good. I'm constantly singing it to myself at work, in the shower, to the baby. My music taste resembles a pre-teen and any song on Top 40 radio ends up being my jam so I was so pumped when I heard this on my fave radio station on the way to work this morning.

2. Avocado, anyone?
Avocado in the eye.
Gracyn tried avocado the other day and despite the pictures, she actually liked it and ended up eating what did not end up in her hair/ear/eye. She was really tired during her evening meal and was half falling asleep while eating. Silly goose.

3. Sophie! My mom brought Gracyn a little somethin'-somethin' this weekend and G is in LOVE. That Sophie will be chewed on until she can be chewed no more. Ma got a two-for-one deal so we have a stuffed version of Sophie too. Baby girl is in heaven...

Hey, girl.

4. I had this brilliant idea to have my mom take some family pictures with her super duper nice camera on Saturday. Justin humored me and we got all dressed up in color-coordinating outfits (duh) and headed to the trail behind our house to take some professional looking photos.

Um, no. No one told me that it was 1000000% humidity outside.

My hair + any humidity whatsoever = one instantaneous hot mess.

We were outside for .2 seconds and I was sweating and regretting this whole cluster. My dad was in charge of getting and keeping the baby's attention and was yelling at my mom to take the picture which ended up just making everyone laugh and this was the best picture we ended up getting...

The Oakley Family
OK, so not TERRIBLE but not great- I'm laughing and my eyes are all squinty. G is just chillin' so that's cool I guess. I cropped my self out of this one:

Um, twins.
Ain't no denying that kid, Justin. She's definitely yours. Smirk and all. Minus G's pants all hiked up into her diaper, this one is my fave...

Blue eyes.
5. I'm going to jinx myself the second I say this.....but....Gracyn slept through the night last night for the first time in about a month. Slept all night - not a peep out of her. Went down at 7:30 pm and was playing quietly in her crib this morning at 7:00 am when I went to get her up.

She was a champion sleeper from 2-4 months. At 4 months she turned into a little monster at night and we had a rough couple of weeks. Then it got better. Then it got worse. Then she started teething. The teething monster is a big fat meanie and makes little baby girls wake up every 1.5 - 2 hours and it is not fun. She has 2 pearly whites to show for it, but it has not been easy. I know we're not done so I'll start mentally preparing myself now.

Any-who, I felt rested and rejuvenated this morning after 8 solid hours of sleep. I'd forgotten what that feels's to hoping and praying we keep up the good work!
