1-My little (but taller) than me brother Drake graduated High School. I am so proud of him and all that he has acomplished. He will be going to SUU in August. I envy him. He is doing something I never did, but wish I would have. He is going to do wonders in his life, I have no doubt about that. Iam going to miss Drake like crazy. I am glad that he is not going too far away...yet. Who knows where he will end up once he is done at SUU?? I love you Drake, and we are so proud of you. 1st picture is of all of the graduates, 2nd picture is Brighton trying so hard to stay awake, but it was way past his bedtime, poor little fellow.
2- Went to the pediatrican because Brighton likes to sleep on his right side, which has caused him to have a flat head. Went to see Dr. Church, because I was being a paranoid mother and was unsure of what to do. He told us to let him have lots of tummy time, and get him a Bumbo seat, and let him sleep on his left side at night so that he is off of his right side too see if his head will shape back to normal. Also, if he is favoring one side too much that could also mean that he needs physical therapy, doctor didn't seem to concerned that that is what we need to resort to yet. We have an appointment at the end of this month, if the Doctor feels that it has not improved we will head to Primary Childrens to get him a helmet.
Side note: The American Board of Pediatrics has this "Back to Sleep" campaign that they have been all stoked about, seeing how they feel that babies who sleep on their stomachs have a higher risk of getting SIDs, which is fine, but since they have encouraged this back to sleep campaign thingy more and more babies have had to wear helmets. Who knows if they will ever figure out which is best for babies?? My MIL looked online to read about these helmets which I can't remember the technical name of it, but anyways if Brighton does need a helmet he will have to wear if for 23 hours a day. Only taking it off to bath him, oh boy, this should be fun, if that is what it comes down too. Although, I will have to admit if this is the only tramatic thing I as his mother have to go through right now I will gladly take it because I know there are plenty of babies out there that have worse conditions than our little guy.
3-I'm a clipping coupon guru. I am obsessed!! I seriously dream about coupons, and the amazing deals I can find, it is pathetic. For example just the other day there was a hand mixer for $4(a nice one too). I clearly do not need a hand mixer, but for that price who could resist?? I wanted that hand mixer so bad but I refrained myself. This is what our kitchen table looks like alot of the days, I am a clipping coupon fool. Some of my FAVORITE sites to find awesome deals, and shopping lists are freebies2deals.com and fabulesslyfrugal.com. These webistes rock and will get you some pretty awesome deals. Like today, I bought 502 Pampers Thick wipes (not the cheap kind) for $9.89 shipped from Amazon all because I check the freebies2deals webiste three times a day and that is no joke, I love it!!! Last picture is from my AWESOME deal I got at Wally World the other night ALL because of my coupons. Each wipe container was $1.97 and the razors were $3.97. Before coupons the total was $12.66 which you all might think, well that's not bad, that is 5 items and that is an ok price for those 5 items. Well let me tell ya when you can pay $1.66 for all 5 items because you used coupons you won't go back to paying $12.66 for those 5 items. Coupons seriously rock!!!!
