Bargain shopper??

So today I was a coupon shopper. Heres how it went. I went to CVS Pharmacy.

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 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.)

I just wanted to brag about Jason

Jason is awesome for many reasons but the reason I wanted to highlight today was that he did a 10K in the rain on Saturday. Not only was it rainy but it was a trail run so it was quite muddy too. We had to get up early and drive about an hour to get there. Jason even knew it would be rainy but wanted to run it anyway. And he loved it! I love that Jason loves to do these races rain or shine and I love going with him to watch and support. He just loves life and doesnt make excuses. Thanks for making life so fun. I love you Jas.

Jason and Jordan crossing the finish line. You cant really tell but their legs were all splattered with mud. What troopers! (The picture is a little blurry because they are going so fast!)

The runners and their fans.

How did I not know...

how fun it was to buy something off Craig's list?? Yes, its true, Jason and I have never purchased anything off of Craigs list. But today we did. It was so easy. We looked up the Bumbo chair this morning, found one in Gilroy, and picked it up later today. What great satisfaction is gave us to get this item for only $20. Normally its $35 for the chair and $10 for the tray for a total of $45. Jason said I should've tried to talk her down to $15 but I was happy with my purchase. Thanks Craig!

Jacob is 4 months old

This little guy is so much fun. Sometimes he giggles for no reason at all. I love it when he smiles at me... its the best thing ever!

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.

Point Lobos in Carmel

Jan 30th was Jake's 4 month birthday. We went to Point Lobos in Carmel with the Fangers. It was such a beautiful day!! Here's a few pics of our day.
Is this gorgeous or what??

I think my eyes are open :)
