Enfamil Family Beginnings

June 5th, 2010

Free Formula! If you haven’t signed up for Enfamil Family Beginnings, they have even more cool stuff they are sending out now compared to before. Up to $250 in free gifts, 1 week supply of Enfamil, and $60 savings on formula. They weren’t giving the free stuff out at my hospital when I had Dot, but this time there is a spot to actually enter the name and city of the hospital you are delivering. I’m hoping to get some great coupons and goodies this time around! The picture is the link.

ETA: I was already a member of Enfamil’s Site, so when I signed up for this, I skipped the registration step – and it seemed to work just fine. I guess this is a completely new program.

Counting body parts

June 2nd, 2010

This morning, Dot announced that she has three bellybuttons and two bottoms. Not the most awesome thing I would have wanted for her first independent verbal expression, but it will be funny to torture her with it when she gets older.

Potty Animals

May 31st, 2010

Daddy brought Dot’s new potty upstairs today.  We told Dot what it was, and although she wouldn’t sit on it, she put all her little toy animals in it and said, “potty animals”.

Animal Babies

Dot stuffed all of her little toy animals into her onesie and started walking around patting her tummy. Is she trying to look like her Mama?

Household Chores

May 29th, 2010

Dot is VERY helpful, although she doesn’t really do her own chores yet.   She basically works alongside me every morning as we wash and dry a load of laundry and pick up the bedroom.   She helps restock our fridge with water bottles, and helps Grandma put away dishes.  I allow a little bit of extra time for my morning chores since I know it is very important to let her help and encourage the enjoyment of homemaking in her.

In the evening I have an hour housecleaning time and Grandma helps her pick up her toys.  I’m hoping that seeing her things put away every day will develop an appreciation of orderliness.  It seems to be working so far.
