This morning we got up around 8:00 and had what I called “Productive Pajama Saturday.” We stayed in our pajamas until 11:00 but we were productive in that time!
I unloaded the dishwasher and washed dishes, started a load of cloth diapers and did some straightening around the house! John David pruned our Crape Myrtle which was hitting our window (distracting at night) as well as a vine that was climbing onto the porch and trimmed the dogs nails!
Then we (mainly John David) undertook the big project…cutting Mac’s hair! Mac did not enjoy it too much but everybody involved survived and Mac is ready for summer with his new cooler hairdo! Once he was clipped, John David bathed him while I made lunch (Chicken Salad Sandwhiches!)
Dressed like daddy….button up and jeans!
We left at 12 and went to the church to film video announcements for tomorrow and then John David had to be at the wedding at 1. While he ran sound for the wedding, Paxton and I just hung out in the production booth. After the wedding, John David finished up a few things for Sunday and then we headed home.
Once home, John David left to go to dirt track races with our neighbors and I did some cleaning around the house. Paxton napped all afternoon so I was able to do some cleaning and laundry. Once he woke up I had to take his picture (well, pictures) in his adorable outfit!
Here he is, looking just like daddy:
The signature John David look: Sharpie and Pilot G2 in the pocket (these are the minis!!)
Looking stylish and intelligent! (Dare I say a little geeky…like daddy!)
It’s a Paxton sized iPad! Now he really is just like his daddy!
I think he realizes that it’s not really an iPad (after all, he is John David’s son, he knows his technology!)
After the photo shoot, he had a bath (I love bathing my baby) and then was dressed for bed!
Here he is warming daddy’s side of the bed!
I think he realizes his daddy isn’t home to love on him!
So now baby is sleeping, I’m blogging and daddy is still at the races…
We had a lovely Saturday, it started much earlier than usual, after Paxton woke around 7:00 I stayed up! (gasp!) It was amazing how much longer that made our Saturday and how much I was able to get done before 10:00 (which is when we normally start functioning!
This week we started cloth diapering officially! (I did a test run a few weeks ago!) It’s been really easy and I love the cute cloth diapers (and the fact that we’re saving money!) Dealing with poo in the cloth diapers has not been bad at all and they are so easy to use! (I might have to do a detailed cloth diapering post one of these days!)
Here’s Paxton in one of his Fuzzi Bunz diapers! I had to snap the picture of him in the red one on his farm sheets!!
One of my goals for Saturday was to take some pictures of Paxton since he’s growing so fast! Taking pictures of a 1-month-old is not an easy task!
Here is the process:
I love this one!! (And see the green…that’s his Bum Genius All-in-One diaper, it’s adorable!)
Around 3:00 we left and went to a neighboring town to do a Craigslist transaction (I’ll get back to that!) We stopped at Wal-Mart and brought back some baby items we’d purchased but didn’t need. While we were there I picked up 2 shirts (my maternity clothes are too big and my regular shirts are too small so I had about 5 shirts for summer…now I have 7!) We also picked up a snack: Wheat Thins and Dr. Pepper! Here’s where our frugality comes in, instead of buying a 20 oz for $1.38, we purchased a 2-liter for $.99 and bought a $.22 cup of ice, it cost $.17 less and we had more Dr. Pepper!
Then we went to Goodwill (where I found 2 Bright Baby Books: My Little Counting Book for $2.99 and Animals for $.99!) followed by a stop at Big Lots where I found cereal marked down to $1.15 a box and Wheat Thins and Triscuit for $1 each! (Love these little bargains!)
Then John David made his Craigslist transaction! He purchased an iPad! He’s wanted one ever since they were announced but with our budget he couldn’t go out and purchase one the day they began selling them. However, he had saved some money from doing some odd jobs (technical support) and had a little birthday money and is selling a camera so he had enough to purchase the iPad in cash! Yay!
Holding Paxton and playing on the iPad!
John David plans to use it at work since he typically carries his MacBook, this is more convenient. It’s perfect to have especially on Sunday morning since Planning Center (his service order program) works beautifully on there!
It’s a really amazing device. I didn’t understand what all the hype was about, but after playing with it and reading through some books, I think it’s really awesome! I even used it to do some internet browsing while nursing! I have a feeling it will be used a lot by us both…(I’ll trade baby for iPad when he gets home from work! ha!)
