Black Friday Shopping....

OK, I'm not one that likes to fight the crowd on "Black Friday" but we needed a new washer and dryer. mom and I decided to go along with the other crazies out there at 5:00 am and see what we could find! Two hours later, we both purchased this.... (dryer also, but this is just the washer!)

We are hoping to have it in our house tomorrow. I can't wait to do my first load of laundry in our new mashines! Honestly, the crowd was not bad at all and it was totally worth it. Benji and I had been talking about getting one for awhile now, so this just got our butts in gear to do it! I have heard nothing but great things about LG washers/dryers! Oh the little things in life that excite doing laundry! :)
Now, today is more my type of shopping day....CYBER Monday! I've already been online seeing what I could buy! Good thing I'm off today!

Los Cabos, Mexico....Matt & Malinda's Wedding

OK, so I finally have the pictures posted from Mexico. These aren't even close to the amount that I took. I just picked out a few of our favorites to post. Overall, the trip was wonderful. We had a few bumps here and there, but what vacation doesn't! First of all, a big thank you to Lauren, my cousin, for going with us and being our "little nanny" for the trip! Lauren, you don't realize how much you helped us! With your help, we got all of our luggage and both kids to the resort! We were able to relax with friends and family when it was naptime, and could enjoy the wedding reception after the kiddos crashed! Thank you so much, you are awesome!

A few funny and memorable things that happened on the trip:

-Max's first airplane ride (he and Laney both did so well with everything!)
-Looking off of our balcony and seeing the beautiful beach with the white sands, blue ocean, and big mountains (sigh!)
-Laney noticing Max's "private" is different than hers (OK, seriously Laney, you're JUST now realizing this??) Gotta tell the story on this one....As I'm changing Max's water-logged diaper:
Laney: Mommy, what IS that?
Mommy: Laney, Max has a dirty diaper. It's poopy, we need to change it.
Laney: No, not that Mommy! What is that RIGHT THERE?
Mommy: Well, that's Max's "pee pee"
Laney: Hmmm....I have a triangle, Max has a circle
Mommy: smiles and nods (what can I say to that?)
-Laney falling asleep on the menu at the rehearsal dinner
-Me (the Matron of Honor), forgetting the ring! (yep, that's me!)
-Spending time with my awesome family and wonderful friends
-Max getting frisked at the airport (haha! Yep, his name was randomly selected to be searched when leaving Mexico and they said, "We need to check Max. Get him out of the stroller." I said, "MY BABY?" That was that...needless to say, I didn't have anything dangerous hiding in my son!
-The BEAUTIFUL Bride & HANDSOME Groom!!!!!!

Enjoy all of the beautiful pictures of the trip....including the see the stunning, new Mrs. Malinda Plumer and handsome Mr Matt Plumer! We love you guys!!

Max-7 Months

Max is such a little ham these days. Just look at the little guy and he flashes his baby blues and that gummy grin! I took him to the Dr for a weight check, but they didn't write it down for me, and of course, I can't remember what the weight was! I do know that he had gained over a lb this month!
I stopped breastfeeding at 6 1/2 months and Max has really adjusted well to it. The last couple of weeks of nursing him, I wasn't feeling like he was satisfied and getting good feedings. After seeing his weight at his 6 month appointment, I thought maybe it was time to switch to formula. The same thing happened to Laney about this point. I guess it's just my body telling me that he is ready for something different.
We had a great time in Mexico last week and have been getting back into our normal routine. I hope to get several pictures from the wedding posted today or tomorrow, so stay tuned!
