New posts!

With two children and back at work full time, I haven't had time to post anything new. So I played catch up today. There are three new posts below!

I have a problem..

I take too many pictures of Ava! Is there a support group for this? When she's this cute and funny, how can I resist?

Just minding his own business....talking to the star when..

Ava decides to take over!

Poor boy can't have any time to himself.. :)

Happy 2 month Sam!!

I can't believe Sam is already 2 mths old. Where has the time gone?!? He is such a precious little boy and so easy. As I'm typing this, he's laying on his playmat talking to the star that plays songs and lights and smiling at it. We thought Ava was pretty laid back as a baby, but Sam puts her to shame. He has the most pleasant personality. If I knew I'd have more babies like him, I'd have 5 more!

Here are his stats from his docs appt:

Weight: 12.5 lbs (65th percentile)
Height: 23 in (48th percentile)

Head Circumference: 16.14 in (72nd percentile)

Happy 2 Month, Sam!!

My precious boy is two months old today! And he decided to celebrate by.......sleeping through the night! Woo hoo! How sweet of him to give his parents a gift :) Sam fell asleep at 10:30 and got up at 5:00. Of course, I still woke up a few times during the night because I'm used to being up around 3. I really don't think I've ever known a more content child than him. He hardly ever cries, is happy wherever you put him or with whomever is holding him. The time is going by too fast-I can't believe it's already been two months!

I had to go back to work this week (tear) and Sam is going to stay with Miss JenJen along with Ava. I think he's really enjoying it there and I hope Miss JenJen loves keeping Sam. Speaking of Ava, she gets funnier and funnier everyday. She is starting to be able to have conversations with Quay and me. A few mornings ago, I got Ava out of bed and brought her in the den. Quay always makes a big deal about seeing Ava (because he's such a wonderful daddy) and said, "Ava!! Where have you been?!?" Ava looked at him kinda funny and said "I go night night." Quay asked her if she had a good time going night night and she said, "I cry. I wah wah" and rubbed her fists at the corners of her eyes like she was crying. It was funny to us because she's never answered that question, and she really did cry when we laid her down. Such a cute kid!

My favorite day is today! Triple coupon at Bloom started today and will go through Sunday. Coupons have become sort of an addiction with the women in my family now. We all cut coupons on Sunday, and we tell each other about the good deals we find. For instance, Kraft salad dressing is on sale at Bloom this weekend, and there's a $1.50 off coupon from last week. It ends up being about 16 cents for a bottle of dressing. I think my mom picked up five bottles a few days ago. Anyway, I'm going this afternoon to use my first 20 coupons at Bloom. You get sort of a high when the cashier rings up your purchases then starts scanning coupons. It's so fun to watch your total go down. I'll let you know how I did later on!!
