Once Again

My computer is back home with me! I spent a couple hours in the Apple store today backing everything up onto my external hard drive and it worked! Thank you God! So now I am home and messing with it and so far everything seems to be working pretty well. *As I knock on wood* And in case you have no idea what I am talking about you can read all about it here and here and here oh and one more right here! *Yeah I really had that many issues...and some...with my dang computer!*


I had a color class today that most of the girls from my salon went to and then afterwards we all went our separate ways. I headed to the mall to go to the Apple store and did my thing there. While waiting for it all to back up I decided to do some retail therapy. The past 10 times or so that I've been there lately *insert sarcasm* I haven't really found anything. I went into Nordstroms where I almost never shop and found I think around 6 tops! It was a little more than I wanted to spend but....I think I deserved it! Plus all my shirts are looking so drab and are all just plain one or two color shirts. These are so darling! They are all floral or have some sort of pattern. And are way different than what I have now! So excited! It's like a whole new wardrobe!


All in all it was a pretty great day! Fingers crossed that tomorrow when I go to turn my computer back on it will work! Now I leave you with a photo of how happy I was tonight! Oh and I have straight hair! Something you will rarely see on me anymore.

Weight Check

Roweyn had her weight check last Friday the 18th to see if she caught back up to where she needs to be on her growing curve and I had them measure her length as well!


Stats:
13.5 Months Old
Weight: 15lbs 13oz
Height: 30in.

So her weight is not quite up to where it needs to be, but we blame that on the other 3/4 of an inch that she grew this past month! Seriously she is like a bean stalk! Her height has shot up so high lately, its crazy! We go into WIC in a couple weeks and the Dr asked me to have her weighed again and call to let him know the results, so it looks like he wants to keep an eye on her weight but I don't think there is really anything to worry about.

Roweyn's Ramblings Wk.3

This has been such a busy week that I'm not even sure if I can remember everything that has happened!

Roweyn has had a bit of a cold, its not a terrible one though, just a runny nose and not feeling completely herself.

She is obsessed with playing with Cyder. They are such best friends and she constantly wants to play tug a war with her! Only bummer about this is that Cyder has accidentally nipped Roweyn's fingers a couple times. Not realizing shes doing it because she is just trying to get the toy from Roweyn.

Roweyn has learned how to climb down our 2 stairs that lead from our entrance into our living room. So great because now we don't have to worry about her falling down them, even though its not a big fall.

She started twirling. So cute, she spins and spins with the most darling smile until she falls over and then she laughs and sits there looking around cause she's dizzy.

She is getting better about keeping hats, headbands and hoods on. So happy about this cause I have so many cute headbands and hats I keep trying to get her to wear!

Roweyn has really been into babbling sentences, especially after she hears the grown ups talking. She likes to join in, its pretty cute.

Her sleeping hasn't been great this past week because of her not feeling good. She won't let me put her down in her crib once she is asleep and same goes for my bed, so I either have to hold her until I want to go to bed, or climb in bed with her and go to sleep. Last night was the first night that she spent half the night in her crib. So hopefully that means she is starting to feel better and will be back to sleeping in her crib in no time.

She decided to wake up at 6:30 this morning! I honestly can't remember the last time she woke up this early! I'm dying today. She went to bed a little after 9 which is later than usual lately, so I have no idea why she was up so early. Let's hope this doesn't happen again!

That's about it for this week! Have a good rest of your week.

M.I.A.

I feel like I have been so M.I.A. lately! And it's all due to the fact that my computer just doesn't want to work! It's broken again, after only working a day...again! It's back at the Apple store and hopefully this means the 3rd times the charm with fixing it!

I'm at work right now and am able to get on the computer and hopefully get a couple posts up and scheduled so that it doesn't look like I've completely abandoned the blog! I'm totally missing not being able to post more.

I do have a computer at home but it's in our office and Roweyn gets bored in there fast! Plus she hasn't been feeling well so bedtime hasn't been easy so I haven't been able to do anything after she's asleep.

I wish I could post photos and videos but they are all on my computer! Fingers crossed that I can get them all backed up next time so I can be worry free if this ever happens again!

Sadly it will probably be another week or two until I get my computer back, which means no Movie Monday until then! :( I will keep up with Roweyn's Ramblings, they just might not be on time. Like last weeks! oops! I will be posting that up today as well!

Thanks for sticking around! And for all of you new followers! Thanks so much for following and I will follow you back as soon as I get a chance!!

Roweyn's Ramblings Wk.2

Roweyn did a lot of fun stuff this past week along with something from last week that I forgot about. So I'll start with last week...

While my mom was watching Roweyn she heard a plunking and splashing noise while she was in her room. So she goes looking for Roweyn to find her with a stuffed Penguin about the same size as her and she is dunking it in the toilet! She has a fascination with the toilet and it's totally gross! We have to keep our bathroom doors closed otherwise she goes straight for the toilet. It's terrible!

This week:

I asked Roweyn on Tuesday if she was thirsty and she repeated me. She said "Thirsty"! I was so surprised as that is definitely not an easy word for a little one to say.

I normally just put Roweyn in the shower with me every day and then we will take a bath together once a week. This week she had a bath in the big bath tub all by herself! She loves to stand in the tub, so I definitely have to work on that with her.

She has started saying "baby" and it sounds so cute because she says like "baybay". She kept saying it to our cat yesterday....no idea why.

Speaking of cat, her name is Vaya and Roweyn said Vaya today! She learns to say so many words so fast!

She has been obsessed with playing tug a war with Cyder. She loves it, even when Cyder pulls her over and she laughs!
Roweyn got another one of her bottom teeth in on Wednesday, on her left, next to her front teeth, she was looking a little uneven having only 3 teeth next to each other so I'm glad this one finally decided to pop through!

My dad works out of town and only comes home every other weekend, so he came home on Thursday. He had only been home for a few minutes when he disappeared into his office and Roweyn decided to go find him, but she didn't know where he went. So I asked her, "Roweyn where is Papa?" She looks around and doesn't see him so she holds her hands, palms up, in that "Where'd he go?" pose and then she started walking around with her arms in that pose stretched behind her, still looking for him. It was darling.

He watched Roweyn for about 5.5 hours yesterday while I was at work and my mom was out of town. She did great and they had lots of fun together! This was their first big day together by themselves, so glad it went so well!

He taught her how to throw the balloon. So cute! She even caught it a couple times!

Something new this week for me....

I started taking clients today at my salon I work at! Just haircuts for now unless I have a friend that wants to come in for a color. I had 3 clients, which was pretty good for my first day! My official day for right now is Saturdays, but if there is time during the week when I am already there then I might take someone here and there. I can't wait to really start building up a clientele. So if you're local and in need of a haircut, let me know! I have really good prices! And you get $10 off your first cut with me!

Well thats about all I can think of right now, my computer is still in the shop, they haven't even gotten the part for it yet. Apparently "priority repair" doesn't mean that much if it's been 4 days and still no part. I'm trying to find a good blogging app on my iPhone so that I can blog from there but so far I haven't really seen anything. So if you know of a good one, send it my way!

Hope you all have a good weekend! I am watching my sister tonight so my parents can go out for an early Valentine's Day Date!

Sooo Guess What?!

My macbook is back in the shop....AGAIN!! All those issues I was having with it Sunday night...yeah...that was because it was on the outs. When I came home Monday from work it wouldn't turn on again. So back to Roseville I went on Tuesday to see what the deal is. Apparently they think it's the same issue. This time they put it on their priority list and are going to keep it an extra couple days to make sure it actually works for more than a day. You would think they would have actually taken the time to test it before saying it was ready to go home. Ugh Frustration at its finest! I'm definitely not excited to be without my computer for another 5+ days.


So sorry to say, the posts are gonna be at their minimum again this week. At least I got a Movie Monday in on Monday. And so sorry to all you new followers, I promise to follow you all back as soon as I get my computer back and catch up on everything!


There was one fantastic part about yesterday though....I got my iPhone!! So freakin excited about it!! BUT since my computer isn't working I couldn't completely program my iPhone which means no music, no contacts and no voicemail. Total pain! So I put in my most important contacts and am just dealing with it until I get my (hopefully totally fixed) computer back!


Happy Hump Day! Hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week!

Movie Monday: Week Fifteen

November was a busy month for us. I was getting situated in a new salon, and my Mom was extremely sick all month. So I guess I didn't pull out the video camera much. But I did get a couple videos in, a few days before Thanksgiving, which puts Roweyn at almost 11 Months!


Up first is Roweyn having some fun with a tennis ball.

And in this one Roweyn shows off her drumming, crawling, listening and talking skills. Towards the end she really starts talking.

It's baaaaack!

So happy to say I have my computer back in my arms! It felt so strange to not have it, even though I had another computer to use it's just not the same. I fell way behind with so much stuff that I normally do, so now I will be playing catch up.


First thing I went to do when I got my computer on was back everything up onto my external hard drive. I realized while my computer was being repaired there was an easier way to back up everything, so as I was planning on doing that tonight,  it somehow got really complicated. I think I did something to it without even knowing, but now my computer won't even recognize when I plug the external hard drive into it, and it's like the actual program has just disappeared off of the computer and I have absolutely no idea how to get it back. I tried upgrading the program but nothing happened. Now I'm re-downloading the whole program from the web site which is taking forever and then I have to do a bunch of other things once it's downloaded, so I have no idea if that will even work. I'm so incredibly frustrated by it! I have always been pretty handy with electronics but for some reason this back up thing totally gets to me every time and just stumps me.


So I just tried it after re-downloading the program but it's still not showing up when plugged in. AHHHHH! Trying so hard not to pull my hair out right now. I was just at the Apple store today! I really don't want to go back so they can help me figure out how to get this to work! I'm not sure if there's anything else I can do though. SO FRUSTRATING! I'm giving up for the night and will try again another day.


But if you have any knowledge about this and can lend me a hand...I would greatly appreciate it!


Thanks for hanging out while I waited to get my computer back! Tomorrow I will have Movie Monday up and going again!!

Roweyn's Ramblings Wk.1

This is the first of hopefully many new weekly posts about the funny, cute, darling etc. things that Roweyn does during the week! I'm still trying to think of a catchy name for it...(Roweyn's Ramblings?, Roweyn's Reactions?) any ideas?

Well, here we go!

Wednesday before dinner, Roweyn got under our dining room table to play with Cyder. When she stood up, she still fit, but she couldn't figure out how to get out from under it because the side of the table was too low and she doesn't know how to duck. It was cute, we have never seen her get stuck before!

After dinner, the dishwasher was open in the kitchen and Roweyn walked over to it and started unloading the dishwasher. She handed all the dishes from the bottom rack to my Mom. She watches EVERYTHING we do!

Tonight she was carrying a bottle around, she set it down at the top of the 2 stairs that we have, she climbed the stairs. Then bit the nipple of the bottle with her mouth so she could still use her hands to stand up and not have to bend back down to pick it up! I don't know where she learned how to do that but it was pretty smart!

She has learned how to back up while walking!

Roweyn's favorite things this week are:

To explore every cabinet and drawer in our house and take out whatever's in them!
Feed and pet Coco, my sister's Chinchila.
Try to carry everyone's shoes around and put them on her feet.

P.S. My computer is fixed and I am picking it up on Sunday! So next week we should be back to having photos in our posts! So happy!

1 Year Blogging Anniversary!

So while I'm still waiting for my computer to be fixed, my 1 Year Blogging Anniversary came and went on the 29th! Can't believe it's been a year! I wish I had something fun for this post but since my computer is still out of commission, there's nothing too exciting to do.

I've definitely learned a lot since I started and am so glad that I decided to record Roweyn's First Year. I do wish I had posted more of some of the little things she did that I now may not remember, so I'm hoping that for this next year I will be better at that. Because afterall, the reason I started this blog was to keep record of all the exciting and sometimes not so exciting things of having a baby. We all know, as much as we would like to remember everything, it's not always possible...especially with the lack of sleep we get!

So that being said, I think what I am going to try to do is a weekly post of all the funny, not so funny and anything in between things that Roweyn did for the week. I think I'm going to post it on Fridays and see how it goes. I'd like to think of a name to call it but at the moment my mind is blank. So if you have any suggestions, preferably one that starts with the letter "F" like "Freaky Friday" but actually has something to do with my idea, then I would love the suggestions! I'm always terrible at this sort of thing!

Tomorrow we might actually get a photo up for "Wordless Wednesday" since I can use the computer at our wonderful work P.Pants Cloth Diapers!
