Baby Einstein Refund

I would like to thank the dumbasses out there that actually believed plopping their offspring in front of a TV could alter their genetic predisposition thereby transforming them into a "Baby Einstein." Because of this ignorance, Disney is giving full refunds for up to 4 Baby Einstein DVDs. At $15.99 a DVD, that is $63.96....and just in time for Christmas!

Please Pray!

Please everyone keep this little fighter in your thoughts and prayers. He is a preemie going for heart surgery tomorrow.

Nurse Humor

Let the Holiday Shopping Commence!

FYI: Toys R Us is having a sale on the Fisher Price toys this week. Buy 2 get 1 free! Here is the loot I got so far.....

Baby Food Recall

It has been 19 months since I became a mother, and I had yet to have a baby product recalled....until now! I have been stocking up on organic baby food for Ashlyn when she starts solids around 6 months. Turns out, Plum Organics has issued a voluntary recall for the pouch of Apple and Carrot baby food with an exp date of May 21, 2010 and UPC of 890180001221. Thankfully, Toys R Us and Babies R Us will be giving full refunds.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Sibling Rivalry?

No way! Braeden has become the most overprotective big brother. We cannot leave a room without him asking for "sissy." Cute, albiet annoying when I end up lugging a napping baby around in her boppy chair throughout the house!

Ashlyn is Absolutely Adorable

I might be biased, but Ashlyn is the cutest little pain in the butt ever! She might be a drama queen...but she is the most amazing little princess ever.

Say Cheese!!

Braeden says "cheese" for pictures now. At lunch at Sticky Lips on Sunday, he was being extra cheesy! Here are some of the cute pics:

Sophie la Girafe

I broke down and bought Sophie the giraffe for Ashlyn. I basically spent $20 on a squeky dog toy....but she loves it!

Pumpkin Patch 2009

On Sunday, my family went to Stokoe Farms Pumpkin Patch and had an afternoon of fun!

4 Freakin' Months Old!!

Are you kidding? Ashlyn is 1/3 of a year old! I cannot believe how fast this year is going by, and how much progress she has made. Her development is great, and she is rolling over consistently now and even trying to sit up on her own!

Since it is officially October now, I decided it was not too early to put her in a Halloween onesie.
Love it! Found this onesie at Babies R Us for only $10! I paired it with some warm tights, and she was good to go! Isn't she the cutest little pumpkin ever?!

Road Trip!

Last week, we took an impromptu drive up to Canada to see the Niagara Falls with the babies. It was our first "day-cation" with the babies, and I must say went quite smoothly!

Chris looks thrilled....

Mommy happy to be getting out of the house on a random Thursday! Braeden kicking daddy in the crotch....
We later switched over to the double stroller for fears of future fertility problems!

Braeden passed out before we got back to the States!

One random story from our trip.....While Braeden was running around the park, Ashlyn got hungry so I started breastfeeding her right in broad daylight. Now, I normally do not breastfeed in public, and when I do I use a nursing cover. However, I didn't have a cover with me, and I felt liberated being in a different country so I went for it. I was not flashing my boobs around...I was being discreet about it. As Ashlyn is eating, three Muslim men walk into the park to do their afternoon prayers. I felt so awkward and worried I was offending them! Luckily, they didn't seem to care or notice. But I have learned a valuable lesson, I am modest and am not the type that is carefree enough to just whip my boob out without warning! Timed perfectly, the very next day, the babysteal of the day was a hooter hider for 50% off....I snagged on without thinking twice!
