David is around 35 inches tall and 29 pounds, he is growing so big and and has opinions on almost anything LOL.  His speech is improving as we get that bink out of his mouth more and more. We are working on using the big boy potty and love to wear our big boy undies!  His favorite movie is Toy Story (though Daddy and I can no longer stand it)! David loves Pizza and Pancakes as well as ANY fruit. He loves to play outside in the pool and go to to the park.  his favorite pets are his Nana and Haha.  And his favorite toys are anything that makes noise as well as his toy cars!

PIZZA!!!!

David’s favorite food is pizza, daddy makes it for him weekly with a wheat crust and all.  Well tonight David learned that strangers will even bring it in a box to your house LOL.  When I opened up the box to show him what was inside he did a happy dance and ended up eating 2 slices!  as you can see he wasn’t very neat with it.

David, Other Ways to Save

Home Hair Cuts

cork money saving tips

So there are many other ways that you can save some more money…. One way that we do is cutting David’s hair at home.  It also is so much easier than taking him somewhere where we both end up covered in the hair because the only way I can get it done, is to have me sit there and hold him hoping that they get it, because he moves non stop…

Hair cuts for David run $15-$20 every 3 to 4 weeks this means that I save at least $180 per year by daddy or I doing this!

You yourself can get a set real cheap on Amazon!

What are some other things that you do to save money?

Child Life Mommy, David

Beautiful morning becomes … A trip to the …

So we here in Texas have been having some beautiful spring weather!  I had made it up early there want much I needed to do today that could be done with David up so I figured a nice walk to the park would be good.

Our walk was great David jabbered at the birds said dog when the dogs barked and all. He was loving the park and doing great.

So now let me explain a little bit about the type of kid David is before I go on.  David is very active, he walked at 7 months, he climbs anything and everything!  He can even scale the kitchen cabinets with his toes! This is why what follows wouldn’t of worried me in the beginning.
Ok back to the story all was going well he was having a blast, and was loving slides something he normally has avoided at the park.  he climbed up the steps to the big slide, slid on down to mom and ran back to do it again only he changed his mind, I began running over and telling him no no, go down the slide but he wast going to! he decided he was gonna climb down but not the steps…
Now the picture below is one I fond on google so its not identical …

Our park has this large climbing thing in the middle of the structure to climb up and down inside of, its bigger around than this with the rungs evenly spaced.Well you guessed it David was gonna try it out, he made it half way down with me now running around toward it, and then lost his footing, he fell about 4 feet and hit the back of his head on the 2nd to last ring.

He whimpered and cried but didn’t scream as he normally would if he had gotten hurt, all he wanted was to hug on me. I knew this want normal for my kid… so I quickly ran home with David ( I don’t normally run).  I grabbed the diaper bag and my purse and we headed for the ER (making calls as I ran home and once in the car).

Within an hour David was seeing a Doctor at the local children’s Hospital.

And yes I had to be the mean mommy who took his picture when he couldn’t move. David was examined, had a CT, even found their stash of binkies lol.
He has a headache as one would expect , an abrasion where he hit his head and a nice goose egg, but that is it!
we are home now and he is acting like himself again, I hear Dad out there telling him no and get down as I type this.
Now this goes to show how suddenly things can change, I keep our diaper bag with a medical card, and other important documents as well as my purse (currently a tote bag) ready to go. Because when you have an active child you can never be too prepared for the unexpected, things change fast with kids!
For more information on keeping a Go Bag or even a Diaper Bag for emergencies ready to go, check out Child Life Mommy and her post on Go Bag right here!

So, I know that I haven’t posted any updates in a while, but he is so stinkin active it makes it hard to do any posts or couponing! So here it goes, he is over 25 pounds and 32 inches. (Look for another update in a couple of weeks as he will be 18 months) He is talking up a storm (baby talk), running, climbing, and tackling his Nabby!
