We started with this:
It came home from the hosptial with him. He seemed to have a hard time with it, so we switched when he was staying with David and Heather to:
It was a little nicer on the budget (not much, but every little bit helps) but we didn't see much improvement with Bosten. Sometimes it was fine, other times large quantities would come up...even an hour or two later.
I'd looked at it before, but it says all over the can that its for "babies with fussiness or gas". That has never been our issue, so hadn't given it serious consideration. All I can say though is HALLELUJAH! Its a miracle! Seriously. I'm so happy with it. We used to have to burp Bos every ounce (and he still was spitty after all of that). Now, we only do it a couple of times for the whole bottle and it so great. We pretty much wear one outfit per day! I'm not saying he never does it anymore, but it is a thousand percent better. Really.

March Madness is in full swing.
Kaden has been SO FUNNY watching the games with us. He's yelling at guys to "shoot the ball!" or "get the rebound" or lots of other stuff. (Wonder where he learned that?) His bracket is toast though....he picked BYU vs. Syracuse in the finals. Of course, he loves the Cougars (espeically since going to a game this season) and he loves the Orangemen too (for obvious reasons). Kyle and I's brackets are hanging in there. We're not at the bottom of the pack in any of them, so that's good...right?! Yahoo even has a second chance bracket that we're doing, so we'll see if that helps us out any.
On Monday we woke up to SNOW.
He fell asleep in the carseat after SCREAMING most of the way home.

I love the Leapster! Its fun for Kaden and its helping him to practice his numbers, counting, letters, sounds, etc. Definately one of the best toys we've got, and it makes a happy momma to still get an hour to myself!

3 tubs of Huggies wipes
2 pkg. Mott's applesauce
3 pkg. Reach ultra dental floss
1 pkg. headache relief gels
4 Johnson's Buddies Soap
1 Gillette men's body wash
1 Pledge multi surface spray
1 loaf Artisan bread
I SHOULD have paid $34.78 out of pocket for all of this stuff. In REALITY though after coupons, register rewards, overages, etc. they PAID ME 82 cents. Yep, I got it all for FREE plus got 82 cents. Not a bad shopping trip!

Here's some examples:
Super cute, huh?!

We've had more March Madness lately. Kyle's played Church Ball all season. They were undefeated in league play, and have been in the regional tournament the last couple of weekends. Kaden has had a great time hanging with the big boys and shooting some hoops! Actually, he's learned how to dribble the ball (and he's pretty darn good).
Last night was the finals. It was really fun.
So fun. Kyle even had his own cheering section:
Don't the boys look like they're TOTALLY into all the action?
Kyle got in early foul trouble and had to sit more of the game than he would of liked. It came down to the last shot....and we lost 50-47. So close. We went out for ice cream with Ryan, Kerry and the kids afterwards to get over it! :) Way to go Daddy.
He's been so excited since one opened close by, and was thrilled that it was finally time to go.
We went when it opened and had the whole place to ourselves. NICE. We played games until it was time to eat.
After lunch we played more games (now other people had started to come...but still not crowded!) Even Bosten got in on the action...but this one ride was enough fun for him!
Way to go Kaden!

For a couple of seconds they made me sad....that was SUCH a hard time...stressful, didn't really know what the outcome would be, wanted our baby at home....AND YET through all of that I gained a new, really good friend. Again, thanks Heather (David and Holland too!) for taking such good care of Bosten when we couldn't.
Just after his 1st bath

The game goes like this...you pick a card from the stack and then match it on the coordinating cards on the game. You then get to take the key and open the door hoping for a little rubber ball inside, which you get to place in the designated spot. Once you find all the balls, the treasure is unlocked from the treasure box.
So, so fun.
