Giveaways that need to be screamed out loud

I came across thsi great site this morning they have a huge amount of giveaways. Unfortunatly some of them are coming to an end pretty soon, but I am confident they will have more giveaways soon enough.

Personally I am signing up for them all and will be sitting around with my fingers and arms crossed, hoping that I win something.

I have entered the following contests through by clicking here. . This company is offering some amazingly designed and cordinated patterned slings and pouches. And for anyone living on Roosevelt Island you have seen me carrying Yum on my chest from near birth. And have heard me talk about how easy and comfortable it is. has great prices and even offers organic fabrics. This contest ends April 26th.

The ERGObaby carrier - which I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE, I was lucky enough to have a friend who had several of these and she loaned me one or two when I wanted a change in carrier style. I found that this type of carrier is far more superior compared to other buckle/snap carrier models, I am sure it has to do with the construction and quality of fabric. The ERGObaby carrier in my opinion is an absolute must have on your list of babywearing items.

On April 4th my youngest turned 2 years old. I cannot believe it. After having my oldest son at the young age of 17 and working like a dog to keep us off of public assistance, I never thought I would have more children. Especially as Sporty got older and older, I kind of thought of having another child as a regression rather than a progression.

Anyway after meeting hubby and falling head over heels in love with him, and knowing he wanted children of his own. We planned a child together. Who knew that 2 months later, several days of debating and about 8 home pregnancy tests. I would leave a nervous voicemail message letting him know that he will be a daddy in a few months.

Yum Yum has been nothing but smiles, fun and loving feels from day one. And he continues to be as happy and healthy as he always was. He is one of the most content kids I have ever met. I call him water child not because he loves the bath (which he does) but because he simply goes with the flow.

We planned a large kiddie party in a party place for the week after his actual birthday, but received some backlash from some adults in our families who wanted to celebrate his birthday with him also. So we decided on having a house party - extremely simple- pizza and cupcakes.

Yum received the greatest gift ever - a Diego book bag. It was the first present he opened, when seeing what it was he promptly announced "Okay, no more presents!!!" I nearly peed my pants because he got all red and started shaking with excitement the then ran to his toy shelf and started stuffing all of his little toy figurines into the book bag. It was hysterical to watch.

It turned out great. Enjoy the pics.

Long Month Run Down

The last month has been a complete blur for me. We planned two birthday parties for our littlest one. One for adults who wanted to help him celebrate and the other for the children in the family.

Had lots of family drama ( my family that is)..... I believe that family is amazing and is unconditional. BUT you do not have to like your family as a whole or even in lumps, take each individual as they are.

Then there was Easter Sunday. To be done at my house. The invite when out as following DINNER WILL BE SERVED PROMPTLY AT 6PM....... So please ask me why the in-laws showed up at 8:30pm ON A SUNDAY. Knowing that DH wakes up at 4:30 AM to go to work. Then did not leave until a little after midnight.

I will be posting pics in the next few entries.
