Ya know I love putting pics in all of my posts but I don't have one for this one(shocker, I know). Anyways I just wanted to leave a quick note and tell everyone that I'm selling AVON now. I would love to send you a book so just email me (listed on side column) if you would like one. You can also go to avon.com and then tell me what you would like. If you are in my area I can do deliveries, but otherwise it's $3 shipping. Let me be your AVON lady! :)

I cannot cross-stitch to save my life. My Mom on the other hand is very good at it. I just have no patience to do it. I tried it once. I kept messing up so I just got frustrated and quit. Mom loves taking pics with my camera(on the rare occasion that I part with my camera). She took this picture of a door hanging that she made. I had no idea that she had even taken the picture until a little while ago when I uploaded the picture's to the computer. I thought that this one was worth a post of it's own.

Ah yes, baby's first shots. Horrible, horrible experience. I now believe that mother's are the bravest human beings on this planet if they can sit there and watch their baby be in pain without being able to do something about it. He had 3 shots, and then they put really cute bandaids on his boo boo's :) Tonight, at bath time, he literally took one of the bandaid's off himself. I'm saving it for his baby book to show the monumental event. Anyways, I'm getting off topic...oh yeah the doctor's office. Jayden has a rash that goes all the way around his neck. They are not really sure if he's allergic to something or if it's just a yeast rash. I, personally, have really sensitive skin so it could have something to do with sensitivity which goes back to allergies. Doc gave me a prescription for a powder to put on it. He came home and slept for about 6 hours straight without eating, which the doctor said would probably happen. Her words were "fussy babies tend to be sleepier babies when they've had these shots, and the opposite for happy babies". Gee I guess I got lucky to have a fussy baby then. She also scolded us for giving him baby food and cereal. But ya know, you can't go by the book for everything. And I highly doubt our ancestors had books back in the old days to tell them what month to switch to cereal or applesauce. They just did it when it felt right such as when the baby is sleeping through the night and able to hold his head steady. He had this mysterious rash before we started giving him the baby food so I'm pretty sure it's not that. Either way, we'll go by Doc's orders this time. I'll try anything as long as it makes him feel better.

I don't know about the other women out there but my husband is addicted to Halo. He has been waiting 3 years for this new game to come out. Ever since Xbox360 posted the Halo 3 trailer on XboxLive he has watched it more times than I can count. He would have probably been one of the crazy people at GameStop at midnight if he had not had to be at work early this morning. I was surfing the web earlier and I read somewhere(I think it was aol), that Halo 3 is beating Star Wars as far as popularity goes. I'm very sure that this week is going to be a very quiet week for many couples considering the men will be playing this *gasps* amazing game. My husband and I are currently separated but he still calls me every night and today he called me twice, which I think is to make up for the fact he will probably forget to call me tomorrow considering he's cheating on me with this game. Anyways, I was wondering if there was any more women out there who's marriage is being put on hold because of this new guy toy. It feels kinda nasty talking about this macho game after all of my posts on babies, scrapbooking and freebies :)

Jayden is only 2 1/2 months but he's already holding his head up on his own and sitting up with a little help from us, plus he's teething, and he's sleeping through the night, so we decided to try him on a little bit of baby apple sauce just to see what he would do. He loved it as I suspected he would, since he loves Milicon because of its sweetness. I'm going to try giving him a little bit of cereal tonight before bed to see if it helps him sleep better.

My name is Crystal and I am addicted to freebies. There, I said it. I feel so much better now. Some of my friends think I'm kinda dorky for being so wrapped up in this but hey at least I am saving money. I figured that since I love getting freebies so much that I should share my secrets with others so that they can benefit from it as well. Therefore, I have decided to post a regular freebie special on Monday's called "Manic Monday". I really hate Monday's and I'm sure there is other people out there who do to, so I thought it would give us a little something to look forward to after the weekend. I know that there are other blogs out there that also have freebie specials but there might have been some freebies that they missed. For a few months now I have been getting the coolest freebies in the mail. I have not had to buy any toothpaste, deoderant, baby stuff, or items for our wonderful monthly reminder such as pads and tampons. I have saved a lot of money because of this. You, my friend, should too. Afterall, we do pay our taxes; should'nt we get something out of it?
These are the awesome freebies that I received last week.
Here is MaNIc mONdAy!!!
Dove Energy Glow
Olay Total Effects Foundation and Lip Color
Eucerin Redness Relief Cream
Play Pop Culture Challenge and get a $5 Walmart Gift Card
Hamburger Helper Microwave Singles
Dentek Oral Health Samples

Child Safe ID Kit
Plastic Bags (The Tri-Fold Handle bags make great lunch boxes for work)
Beech Nut Baby Food Bowl and Spoon

Have an awesome Monday!

We have a tooth! Baby Jay is teething for the first time. We've noticed he's been drooling a lot, crying for no apparent reason and has been wanting to eat my fingers every chance he gets. Every time we've done a tooth check we have not seen one so we just figured he was having a fussy day. Well now you can finally feel a tooth. You can't see it yet but it's surely there. This would explain why Jayden felt a little warm today and had me up at 2 in the morning. Luckily we bought a teething ring on our previous trip to Wal-Mart. He's only 2 months old so I think this may be a bit early. However, I did read somewhere that if a baby teethes early then the baby will crawl early as well. I always knew he was advanced for his age *grins*.
