Random stuff

-I ordered (or my husband ordered for me) a new Dell laptop. I want something that I can use to edit photos and this way I won't have to fight DH for his computer (which is actually mine that he stole after his broke, but I digress . . .).

-I got a new cell phone so this means, for the first time in 6 years, we have TWO cell phones -- one for each of us. We like Tracfone -- I couldn't pass up the deal Target had -- a slider phone with double minutes for life for $19.99 -- can't beat that! I then went online to purchase a 450 minute card (with 80 bonus minutes) so then I got 980 minutes to add to the 10 that came with it. SCORE!

-I am in a wedding on Saturday and I haven't been in a wedding since I was 5, since I was a flower girl in 2 family weddings. I am heading up to the Cities on Friday for the rehearsal/dinner and the wedding is on Saturday. We are getting our hair did. ;) Andrew will be with my mom from Friday night through Sunday morning because I cannot fathom watching a wild (almost) 3-year-old while I am IN a wedding -- this child runs and runs and never stops. Seriously, he is the kid that you see in group of kids that is the wildest. I am not exaggerating. Anyway, DH can handle the baby just fine and I need her there so she can feed on the tap (she doesn't take bottles) whenever necessary. It should be interesting with the dress, but we'll make it work. The dresses are a really pretty candy apple red with spaghetti straps. While I am welcoming a break from Andrew, I know Mommy Guilt is going to kick in and I hope that he has fun -- I'm sure he will. He loves Grandma, or "Grammon", as he calls her.

-Speaking of Andrew, he turns 3 on Wednesday. We're going to just do a small gathering with my mom and siblings at my mom's house on Thursday. It should be fun.

-Andrew has some "friends" and they are not people, nor are they animals. They are Clementine oranges from the other day. Tonight he set them on his stool in the bathroom before I set him on the toilet and he turned to his "friends" and said, "What think, oranges?" It was so funny!

-I got Elise 2 more diapers -- I had to try the BumGenius 4.0 snap diapers! Now I have 30 diapers total in my stash and I'm done buying.

What do you think of the BG 4.0? I wanted to get one to try out cuz Hunter is DEFINITELY a bigger baby (I guess the 4.0's are supposed to be better fit for bigger babies?) but I've heard some reviews that they aren't much different than 3.0's. Elise has some chunky legs too, right? How do they fit her? Hunter has chunky legs and a pot belly so I want something that wno't make his skin all red!
