Quick Pics

Just a quick run through some pics and few updates:
-Will has finally started rolling over! Back to front only, can't seem to figure out tummy to back
-Making "g" & "razzing" throaty sounds, so cute!
-Has finally found his feet and his constantly reaching for them
We tried to go swimming with Shad and Haley and found this- Ooooh.. that's never good... yuck
He just loves his bouncer ... jumper... activity center thingy
Giant boy with his wonderful Mimi!
Spending some quality time with his grandparents!

Well, Mom and Dad want to smile anyway even if baby boy doesn't!

So I'm entering to win a giveaway on the following site:

She is giving away a cloth diaper set that I would love to try. I'm very intrigued by the new cloth diaper shells and wonder how much money they really save.. and trash for that matter! To enter I have to blog about the giveaway. So here's my blog. :)

Coupon Lady

So I found some new coupon websites and went yesterday to try out the deals at Target. Let me just say I was so excited! (and if being super excited about coupon savings makes me a total heeb, then so be it!) I used to do the Grocery Game, but got out of the habit when I started working again. Now that I'm staying home I really need to be more "savings savvy".
Notice that I used my debit for .52 cents. I was so shocked at my total that I wasn't thinking clearly!
I got all of this for about 2 quarters! She even gave me a coupon back b/c using it would have made my total under $0! Yay!

So I haven't blogged in a very long time. The more time you let pass, the less you want to because there are just that many more things you have to include. It's like letting laundry pile up, it's much better to do a little at a time than to spend a whole day working on it. Mostly I've just been tired because Will has gone from sleeping most of the night back to hardly sleeping at all! We are at a complete loss and have that exhausted feeling that I had when he was brand new.

Anyway, I'll do a quick catch up with some pictures and a few stats because my boy turned 4 months old! It has passed quickly, but at the same time, it feels like we've had him forever.
He is a giant! He weighs in at 19 lb 13 oz (100th percentile) and 26 1/4 inches (95th). His spitting up is still just as bad as ever and the doctor says he'll probably do it until he's about a year old. The good thing is though that once he's mobile we can always find him by following the trail of spit up! (glass half full!)
Poor little chunky thighs... vaccines - boo!

Such a smiling baby all the time!
.. except when he's surprised!

5 Years!

July 24th was mine and Steven's 5 year anniversary! It's strange because it seems like we just got married, but at the same time it seems like we've been married forever. This post will be short b/c my baby is crying on the monitor, but I didn't want anymore time to pass without bragging on my amazing husband. He made me a beautiful picture frame since the gift for the fifth anniversary is supposed to be wood. He framed an 8x10 picture of us holding Will. The frame itself is is probably 16x20. (It has glass in it, you just can't tell) I just think it's so beautiful and thoughtful. Of course he's very critical of it, but I think he did a great job- especially for his first try at something like this.

Thank you sweetheart! I love you!
