Do you have a "99 Cents Only" store in your area? If you have one and have never been there, I recommend you stop in and browse for a bit. I don't shop here nearly enough! This store is my go to place when I need gift bags, gift wrap or batteries for Parker's toys. Nothing is over 99 cents throughout the whole store.
Lately, I have been seeing some great things! The most recent visit we purchased a few bibs. They aren't those cheap plastic feeling bibs, but high quality ones.
Some other purchases I have made in the past couple of months:
-Babylegs!! -Snappies -Sunscreen lotion(not some cheap off brand either, I was about to purchase this exact item at my local Fry's store for $8) -Body Wash(large size) -Books -School supplies -Cleaning supplies
I have missed participating in Scavenger Hunt Sunday! I'm happy that I had some extra time to join in this week.
1. Give Me Flowers
This is what is left of the rose I received on Mother's Day. It's pretty much dead, but I keep it around because my kitty loves to eat flower petals when they become crunchy. I was having fun playing around with this window that is in our bathroom, and with the lighting that was coming through.
2. Visual Contrast
I usually don't take photos during this time of the day in Parker's room, normally the shadows are very distracting. Parker was being so funny when he saw his shadow, I couldn't resist taking some photos.
I actually took this photo around Easter, but it was so cute and this photo came to mind immediately when I saw the prompt. I also used the picture in my new blog banner. It is amazing how much these two love each other.
4. Before and After
I was asked to sew up some newborn diapers this past week. I had no idea what I could use for this prompt, so I used a couple of the photos I took of this newborn order I completed. 5. Dark
So I'm a big planner, I like to know what is happening, how it is going to happen and when...and I really don't like surprises. So you could imagine how meticulous everything was planned out when I was pregnant with Parker. Plans of the nursery and birthing plans. Plans for his diapering, sleeping, his immunizations and plans of making my own baby food. I should have known Parker had plans of his own all along. He decided to arrive early, which caused me to throw all my birthing plans out the window and I also never finished everything in his nursery. He won't have anything to do with his crib, no matter what we do, and lastly he wants nothing to do with eating solid foods.
The other day we were at the grocery store and I saw a small package of Gerber graduates in the "impulse buy" section of the store, also know as the checkout aisle. I figured it couldn't hurt to try just one more thing.
I think he might like this...what do you think?
It may not be a lot but it is big progress for him to eat something without gagging all the time or throwing it up.
Don't forget to vote...although I think we are way behind the competition. Oh, well it's fun anyways ;)
This was the first time I had ever seen a baby seat in a bathroom stall. It just struck me as a little funny and I couldn't resist taking some pictures(don't worry I wasn't going to the bathroom.) I went into the stall in search of a diaper changing area, and wouldn't you know, there was none...I had to change Parker on the floor. I never understand when an establishment doesn't provide an area to change a baby, even just a small space on the counter next to the sink would suffice.
My daughter was born on December 8th, 1999. She weighed 7lbs 15oz and was the most beautiful baby girl. She was born with bright blue eyes, a full head of dark brown hair and rosy cheeks and lips. Her birth was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. That day, I became a mother...
On August 31st, 2010 I became a mother for the second time. Parker was the most handsome, beautiful baby boy. He weighed 7 lbs 1 oz. He had big gorgeous dark brown eyes and lots of dark brown hair. I never thought that I would be blessed with another baby.
I'm so thankful to be the mother of two beautiful and wonderful children.
It's days like today that make me love thrift stores. When I was growing up I was a little embarrassed to shop at them, but they were nothing like thrift stores are now. Now there is a possibility of finding designer gowns, purses and shoes. A few weeks ago, I saw a lady purchase a brand new coach purse, tags and all, for $40.00.
Other than the below picture of Parker in his new outfit, we found 1 other pair of shorts, 2 more shirts and another pair of Pedipeds one size larger. I spent just over $10 for all of it.
