My friend emailed me a $5 off a $20 purchase coupon, (here it is-it expires 2/27/10 so take advantage of it) so I printed it off before I went to the store
Next I filled out their form for extra bucks (which only took about 30 sec, I was surprised). I guess you get points for spending money and free bucks later.
Then I found my items:
**3 boxes of Cheerios, reg price 2.99, on sale for 1.99 and I had $1 off so Cheerios were $1 a box, not bad.
**1 pkg of diapers, reg price 11.99 (for 80 diapers) I had a $1.50 off coupon so Diapers were $10.50 for 80 (about reg price-I think I use my other diaper coupons at Wal-mart).
**vitamins for baby $10
**air freshner $5
** then finally my $5 off $20 purchase.
So I spent $25 out of pocket which I thought wasnt too bad for an amateur. I figured that the vitamins, diapers and air freshner would've been $25, so I got my Cheerios for free :)!!It took some planning and help from my friend Nicky but I'd try it again. Thanks Nicky.
Btw I made a mistake...my diapers were $10.50 for only 40 diapers not 80...oops!! That would've been an awesome deal huh?

Isn't it funny how babies can make super loud screeching sounds, and still be so dang cute!
I mean, if you were at an office party, or friendly neighborhood BBQ, or something, and if while talking to an adult they started laughing/screeching like this, you'd probably think to yourself, "This dude has problems."
But with babies, it's just super cute... Especially when the kid is your own, right parents?
(In all fairness, if I were at an office party, or friendly BBQ, and was trying to get someone to laugh by dropping a pair of pants on them from the top of my head, I'm sure I would be judged as the dude with problems. And rightly so.)
A few minutes later :)

Jake went to the doctor a few days ago for his 4 month check and shots. He did so good. He giggled when we took his clothes off and put him in the scale and then jumped around on the table and made loud happy yells all through his appt. He is such a happy baby. Here are his stats.
Weight: 13.9 lbs, 25th percentile
Height: 24.5 inches, 45th percentile
Head: 41 cm, 45th percentile
Jake loves loves loves to suck on his hands. He would put both hands in his mouth at the same time if he could. He has a cute little patch of hair on top and he's a pretty good sleeper overall. He loves bathtime and taking his vitamins. He does the cutest bicycle kicks when we pick him up. Its like he's trying to run away in mid-air. His favorite toy is either his Curious George doll or his ducky that buzzes when you pull the string. He's also ticklish on his feet and armpits and has the cutest little laugh. Well thats all for now. We feel so blessed to have him in our family.
I think my eyes are open :)
