My boy and his Jumperoo...

I love this style (Luv U Zoo...Fisher Price) cute and fun!

Family Pic

That giant wet spot, you ask?! DROOL...yup...mommy was attacked by a teething baby boy!

6+ months later....Mamma's favorites!

It's been about 6 1/2 months since my little man came home. It's so hard to believe it's been that long already! It has gone by so fast! I've used a number of different products on him trying to find what works, and what we like...I'm no snob when it comes to store brand, so long as it works (I am on a tight budget, so if I can cut costs, I will) here's what we like/don't like:


Johnson's Honey Apple wash/lotion (oh it smells sooooo good!...and it's gentle)
Aveeno Eczema cream for baby (Jaden has eczema breakouts every so often)
Desitin diaper rash ointment (worked best for him...I also tried buttpaste and aveeno...but desitin worked best)
Huggies Pure and Natural Diapers (I really like the Luv's...they're inexpensive and really do hold the blowouts like they claim...but my boy's hiney is a bit sensitive and when it's hot out he's prone to diaper rash so we had to switch back to the expensive diapers...they're gentle and super soft)
Huggies thick wipes (I love the cucumber and green tea...I think that's the right refreshing...lets face it...when the booty is in a diaper all's necessary!!!)
Little noses saline drops (poor Jaden definitely needed those over the winter months!)
Enfamil Gentlease (after two months of struggling with breastfeeding...Jaden decided he'd had enough. I was sad to give it up...still am, but he got to the point where he refused to try...and I wasn't about to force him. He had some colic issues in the beginning and this formula helped a lot!)
Mum mums (great finger food for little ones who aren't ready for cheerios and such)

Dr. Brown's bottles (plastic ones leak...very badly!!! so very annoying! The glass one's aren't as bad)
Pampers...not a fan
Target brand and walmart brand diapers (you get what you pay for with those...
Parent's choice baby lotion (doesn't hold true to it's claim of comparing to Johnson's)
Target brand baby wash (again...not comparable to Johnson's)
Parent's choice wipes (not terrible, but they won't work with my wipe warmer...I end up fighting to get them through...)

So...there you have it. My two cents ;)

Little Mr. Cool Guy!!

First time in the pool!!

(Yes, I braved the bikini...)

Sitting like a big boy!!!

He may become a musician like his daddy...this boy loves music!!

Mother's Day!!

My baby... 6 months old!?! He's a beautiful, strong-willed, cuddly, feisty, smart, silly little bundle of love!!! He hates to be alone, always wants to be held and played with (which I happen to LOVE). When he's not happy about something he has quite the little "tude"!!!! He loves to eat big boy nummies!!! He's had carrots and sweet potatoes so far and squash is next. He loves to watch and "yell"/ grunt at the kitties...who simply turn toward him as if to say "oh...the pink thing's still here". He loves the color red....cell phones (because of the lights)....his easter bunny and his baby book are his favorite toys right now (well...maybe his toes). He loves music as much as his daddy does...if he's crying and we play familiar music he settles right down.He watches his daddy play guitar intently and smiles. He loves to play rough...yup, he's all boy! (oh boy!!!) He loves when Josh tosses the pillow on top of him...or throws him in the air...or when we play "Jaden on the cobb" where we hold him up in the air and nibble at his sides...he finds it hilarious when i fake cough at him (don't ask...)so much so that he's started mimicking me! (way to go mommy!)Sometimes he says what sounds like mum-mum and dai-dai....oh he's growing up so fast!!!
