I finally got around to making birthday invitations for Chloe’s 2nd birthday! (I can’t believe she is already turning 2!!!) I loved them so much I also posted some for sale on etsy!   Her party is going to be fish and aquarium themed.

The sad return to work :( May 11, 2009

Well tommorrow is my first day back to work since having Sammi. I am really not looking forward to it. I have so enjoyed the past three months of Chloe, Sammi, and me spending time together. I can’t believe that Samantha is already going on three months old! I want to cry to think that this special time of just us is over. I am NOT looking forward to having to leave my girls with anyone for 8 hours at a time, even if it is going to be daddy, grandma, or grandpa. I really wish my mom had the energy and willingness to watch the girls cause that would set my mind very much at ease. I wish we could afford for me to stay at home and take care of my girls…maybe sometime soon. At least I got today off (mother’s day) though it is very bitter sweet to spend my last day before I go back to work, which is supposed to be all about being a mother, being sad about having to go back to work and leaving my baby at home. I think it is a lot harder to me this time around because I am successfully breastfeeding her. I think that I have been able to bond with Sammi a lot faster than I got to with Chloe. I think that bonding has also been easier because Sammi has not been colicy like Chloe was and we can actually play with her at this age. I really just want to cry. Also we have gotten Chloe to be not eatting as many junky foods that her grandpa is so fond of feeding her. I am going to revert to lists of what to feed her and when, when grandma and grandpa have to babysit. It is the only way that I can get them to feed her what I want her to eat…aka not cookies.

I just ordered my second order from diapers.com and their prices are just so great, plus delivery right to my front door! I spend 34.99 for 120 size 6 luv’s diapers for Chloe, the same amount of diapers would have cost me 42+tax in the store. I ordered diapers for Sammi at the same time and being that my total was over $49 I got free shipping.

You can get $10 off your first order with my special code ‘easy2009’. This saves you $10 off your first order and gives me $5 credit. We both come out ahead! Such great bargains!

Thats right I made a onesie from a shirt! It is such a fab way of making new clothes for your children having to spend either little or no money. You can also create one of a kind clothes for them that no one else will have. This onesie used to be a womens 2x tank top that never fit me but had a really cute beach theme across the front. I even made a really cute hat to go with it out of the same fabric! The little lady in the picture is my newest addition Samantha aka Sammi. Just for size reference she is a size 0-3 months! This was much easier than I expected but SOOOO cute! There are a lot of step but not that bad and nice feeling since the fabric is more worn in. I just put this up on Etsy! Wish it luck!
