OH MY GOSH! So naturally, I have already started shopping for Holiday Cards. To be perfectly honest, I feel like I'm behind! I am currently obsessed with Shutterfly, I saw their cards on their site and HOLY MOLY! They have really kicked it up a notch this year! They have all these different kinds, and if you, like me, have kiddo's then I'm sure you'll be interested in all of the photo montage options! There were SO many that I loved that I don't know what I'm going to do yet. But I will DEFINITELY be getting my cards from there again this year. The thing I love about Shutterfly is it's not just a place to get prints, or CHRISTmas cards...they seriously have EVERYTHING. You can personalize t-shirts and sweatshirts, mugs, calendars....pretty much anything for anyone for the Holidays. Although, I'm sure their cards are one of their most popular items. I use Shutterfly for my photo books. I made my nephew one for his first birthday that had photos from his entire first year in it. I am currently working on one for my baby and also my niece, and just started one yesterday for my newest nephew arriving in April. So be sure to check them out if you need any holiday shopping ideas! Throughout the blog are some of my favorites photo cards....to find your own simply try their website http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/christmas-photo-cards

Wow....where has the time gone?!?!?! It is so hard to believe that Summer has come and gone, Fall is almost over, and we're knocking on the door of the Holiday season!! Ben is growing and changing every single day. His smile just absolutely lights up my world. :) He is so into his his fish bouncey chair. He sits there in the mornings sometimes for over an hour. Kicking his feet, talking to his fisheys....but the second I open my mouth and start talking to him he turns to me and gets this HUGE grin on his sweet face. :) I love that I am able to stay home with him. Nothing makes me happier than spending time with my family....now if only we could win the lottery so Geoffy could stay home too. :) ha! We'd drive each other insane I'm sure. LOL!!
Ben had his first ear infection last week. :( We had to take him to the Pediatric Acute Care center on Friday night. He was up all night Thursday night, and by the time Geoff got home on Friday his eye was really gunky and he was SO fussy. So we called the doctors office and they suggested we head on over. He weighs 14lbs 14oz!! My little peanut has doubled in size since being born! Of course as we're sitting in the waiting room he is grinning and just the happiest little clam. I swear...boys....then we get back into the room, the doctor comes in and checks his chest, sounds all clear, checks his left ear, looks great, touches the right ear and Benny starts SCREAMING. Yup...ear infection. Luckily, she said we had caught it early, so just some antibiotics and we were good to go! He is MUCH better this week....and has started a pretty decent sleep schedule....goes down for bed at 7:30, wakes up for a bottle at 3:30, and then up for the day at 8! Pretty fantastic.
Sunday was Ben's first Halloween. He was The Great Pumpkin charlie brown. :) Had we gone to a Halloween Party we were going to be Linus and Sally with the Great Pumpkin. :) haha! But no parties this year...just passing out candy at home.
Well, I guess that's all of an update I have. I'll end with a photo of my sweet boy in his pumpkin costume. He was such a trooper...wore it almost all day! xoxo
