Love, Sleep & Play With Pampers {Giveaway}

(Disclosure: I received a set of coupons for posting this but all thoughts are my own.)

Pampers’ new Love, Sleep & Play campaign pays tribute to the millions of ways babies uniquely experience love, sleep and play.  Starting today through August 6, parents across North America can visit the Pampers Facebook page to submit photos of their babies experiencing love, sleep or play for the opportunity to be part of a massive celebration event this August.

Here is the picture I’d submit of the boys:

This picture is full of brotherly love. Big brother is playing while little brother is trying to sleep which is funny because that is still the situation today at the ages of 5 and 4.

Cafepress $50 Giveaway

My boys are having a firefighter themed party on Saturday and I wanted to find them matching shirts to wear. I turned to CafePress, the online store that has many custom products to choose from. I knew if I didn’t see what I wanted I could create my own personalized shirts. I ended up finding two cute shirts for my boys and I am excited to have them wear them for their joint birthday party.

Here are some other items I liked from CafePress:

Here’s the boys’ newest picture taken at JcPenney Portraits. We moved in November so when we had to switch studios I was disappointed because I loved our photographers. I think the photographer at this new studio did a great job with my two little wiggle worms and actually got shots of them both sitting together so I was very happy! :)

*Please note: This post is NOT sponsored. I just really, really love JcPenney’s studios!*

Love, love, love this picture of Jacob and Lucas!

And notice the hoodies they are wearing? Part of the Splendid Littles For Target collection that I just did a review on. (Becky H. was the winner by the way… if you didn’t win, check or your local Target. I saw a whole endcap featuring the collection while I was shopping at my local Target today!)

Happy Birthday, Uncle Brock!

Today is my little brother’s 19th birthday so I wanted to wish him a very happy day! :)

I just have to brag on my brother for a minute because I am SO proud of him. He is such a bright young man and is at a prestigious university majoring in pre-med and just finished his first year with a 3.8/4.0 grade point average.

He is also a very giving person and in high school volunteered weekly at a hospital. This summer he is planning to go on a trip with a medical brigade and they will be setting up small clinics to diagnose and treat patients at no cost. Each student is expected to raise $1,500 for the trip and I figured his birthday post was a perfect opportunity to ask for your support. A donation to the Global Brigades would be a great birthday gift, don’t you think? :) Also, if you are unable to support him financially, would you please lift his group up in prayer? Here is the link to the website, including a letter from him. Thank you!!

February 15, 2009

I posted before that I was pregnant again and since then we have had the 20 week ultrasound where we found out that we are having another boy. This pregnancy I had hoped for a boy so I was excited when I saw that I was “growing a penis inside of me” (as one of my friends so eloquently put it…) As much as I would love to have a girl I know that financially we really wouldn’t be able to afford one. Having two boys means they can easily share a room, clothes and toys. Not to mention the fact that I hope they will become best friends :)
