"Come what may, and love it!......Yet in spite of discouragement and adversity, those who are happiest seem to have a way of learning from difficult times, becoming stronger, wiser, and happier as a result." ~ Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

A busy boy!

So, lately Noah has been busy.  He threw Asher's car seat down the stairs (well, more pushed it down the stairs). He broke the closet door, he put thomas the train sticker on the bouncer, his foot, his face, my back, in the kitchen sink,  on the table, the chairs, in the printer and on the bath tub. He has fallen down our 1/2 flight of stairs at least 3 times sense we moved here and yesterday he was playing outside on the deck and came inside to bring me a bug (a non-threatening sort of bug, still alive). Thursday night he came to me in a shirt and his diaper (he had removed his own shorts) and was trying to take off the diaper. Heath finally figured out that he wanted to sit on the potty. So, we took him to the potty and the little guy did his thing. I thought maybe he'll potty train himself. WRONG-O! I told him to tell me when he needs to go but that hasn't happened yet. That would have been too easy (more like a dream).  I want to wait a little longer anyway for his speech to come a long. They say once you start you can't go back. His speech is improving. Some favorite things he like to say are, "I gotcha", "I got it", "Where'd he go", "ing" (for swing), "ash" (either outside or Asher) and for some reason "no". He signs drink, help, thank you, more and with some encouragement potty. 

So, the other day I had to go get some blood work done and I took Asher with me. They said,"Is it for the baby?". I said,"No, for me this time." They said, "How was your trip?" (referring to the trip to Utah). and "How were the kids on the flight?" I thought to myself...man, I really have got to stop hanging out here. 

So, I'm getting back into using coupons. I mean, I do use a coupon when I can but there is no Albertson's here in PA so I gave up for a while.  But I'm proud to say that I just got 50 FREE 4x6 print pictures from CVS and $15 to a local grocery store called Giant Eagle for watching a short video on line. I know I won't do as well as all you Utah people but I'll get what I can. :) Anyway, if you know of good deals send em my way.
