As you know I am starting cloth diapering this week. In my research on EVERYTHING cloth diapering, I have come up with a list of very helpful resources, which I will share on another post. One thing I will share now that I have come across is a diaper sprayer. As many times as I have read how awesome this is to have when cloth diapering, I think that I am now brainwashed because I MUST HAVE ONE!!!! So I was ridiculously excited when I saw this giveaway over at mynewlifeasmom.

Now that we have a baby one of my goals is to really learn to budget and find ways to save money. I have been researching the art of using coupons (yes, it is an art to me becase it is NOT easy), and well It's time to stock up on a few things. Due to skin allergies on my little one we want to try cloth diapers, and I also need to stock up on pampers sensitive for when he is at grandma's.

Neeless to say, I was excited when I my issue of Parents magazine arrived because they had coupon codes for and!

So I got my 2 little gdiapers gpants and 6 cloth inserts for ONLY $48.09 with parents 10% off code and has FREE shipping! If I paid origial price I would have paid $56.58.

I then researched and came accross this post from Upper Valley moms for my pampers sensitive shipment. I enrolled in Amazon's subscribe & save (which I will actually keep), and added my parents magazine code and I only paid $20.00, saving me 50% AND I also got FREE shipping. So I saved $28.49 and got FREE shipping for both my purchases.

Not bad for a newbie! I must say I'm quite proud.

15 Week Update

Wednesday, August 11, 2010
This week I went back to work. The first day was hard! But after talking to several moms who reassured me that all would be fine in the world, I just stopped stressing and realized I had to do what I had to do. So as the week goes on it's getting a little better each day. However, it's not only missing my baby that I have to adjust to but because I am still breastfeeding I have the joys of pumping at work, exciting eh? (not really!)

Aaron is now 3 months and 3 weeks old (it's crazy that this time last year I was 3 weeks pregnant with him and puking on the metro on my way home- awesome!) and is finding his voice, he likes to talk to us and is getting louder and louder, he even does a girly scream when hes angry and loves grunting, it's just hilarious. He's also learning to graps toys and of ocurse with that comes putting things in his mouth. He's such a happy baby that all he mostly does is smile, laugh and coo, and I am upset I miss this being at work!!!! (ok, so I am still having trouble being away).

Other things: We will start cloth diapering next week. I am brand spanking new to the cloth revolution but will be starting with Gdiapers, so i'll update on that later.

It is now 4:50 and I am dying to go home and snuggle with my gummy bear! Then catch up on True blood, Teen Mom and Kourtney and Khlow! Also, apparently the duggars new season started yesterday so I will try to watch that, I'd like to see how baby Josie is doing.

Going back to work

I will cherish this week! This week is my last week home with my lil man, and then I have to head back to the office. Now I am not worried about the well being of aaron because he will be with my mom, I know I am lucky and extremely grateful! I have already started organizing his things for her, washing everything (again!) and labeling, now the hard part will be for ME to actually put things where they belong. As I was organizing, I was already creating a stack of clothes that no longer fit him!!!!! Not Fair! He is only 3 months! time is just going by too fast!

So I will cherish him! His morning smiles, his soft cheeks, his new giggles that are to die for, the way he can NOT keep his hands out of his mouth now that he's found them, the way he smells, sighs when he falls asleep on me, grunts when he gets impatient, goes nuts when its time to change his diaper, EVERYTHING!!!!!

Everyday Celebrations

Sunday, July 25, 2010
My Saturday started out rough! everything that could go wrong for me that day went wrong! Aaron was spending the day with his grandmother and as soon as I went to pick him up my day just brightened up. It's amazing how happy he makes me! When I am with him nothing else matters! Even though it was a hot one outside, the day was beautiful now that I had my baby boy! I decided to take him to the pool for the first time! he loved it!
