Sooth your colicky baby.

We just bought the Fisher Price Lil lamb sleeper swing and I have to say it has been a life saver!!! My sweet little baby is a bit colicky these days and I thought I was losing my mind. I have been delusional early in the morning after no sleep for over a month and I am getting cranky because of the lack of sleep and "me time" and cuddle time with hubby. I can not get housework done or anything.

My baby loves to be with me and lying on my chest 24/7 and as sweet and precious as that it I do have to do other things sometimes. I love this baby more than m y own life and I love the quality time I spend with him but I do need to put him down once in awhile and that was just not happening. Thus the lack of posts in my blog lately. We bought this cradle swing and has been so wonderful!!!! I wrote a review on it here on Please check it out. I would recommend this swing to anyone with a young baby. The price is well worth your sanity. :)

Fall is around the corner

I love fall. I am from New England and I think New England epitomizes what fall is all about. I get all nostalgic when it comes to fall and fall decorating. I now live in FL where we do not have fall but believe me, when you walk into my house it is New England all over! I love decorating it for the seasons too. It is so much fun.

I was recently given a Yankee Candle that is "flavored like Caramel Pecan. I think it is a very sweet smell. Literally sweet. It makes the whole house smell like candy. I love it. It is my precursor to fall. I usually have apple spice and pumpkin smells in the house for fall.

I lit the candle tonight and now I am enjoying some animal crackers and the smell of sweet caramel and pecan while I am blogging. The baby is stirring a bit and I will have to feed him in about thirty minutes. It is so relaxing to have the house all quiet and smelling delicious and it makes it a pleasing thing to stay up all hours of the night with the baby. I love this time I have with him.

Whoops, off topic a bit there. Sorry the brain thinks baby all the time these days.

Anyway, I have some great finds I will share with everyone soon. I saw some pink and green in Marshall's the other day that I have to share with you all.

Until then...

I am so in love with our new baby!!

I have 2 other kids and love them more than my own life. It is so hard to think sometimes that you could possibly love anyone else. there can not be any more love in me to give. But, when this little baby was born 3 weeks ago, I fell head over heels in love with him. I would die for him and I can not get enough of him. I love the bonding we have at night when I feed him and everyone else in sleeping. I love talking to him and Reading to him. I worry about the swine flu with him and it makes me cry to think about it.

I am 36 years old so my husband said no more babies. It makes me sad but I am soaking in every single moment I can with our new baby. I love with with all my heart. I love all 3 of my kids and God is sooooo good to us for allowing us this privilege for the third time. :)

Swap a dvd!! Cool site

I just came across this neat site SwapaDVD You can take DVD's you do not watch anymore and get something you want to watch! It's great for excerise DVD's as well. I think I will use it for that! I like to switch out my exercise DVD's. It gives me more of a challenge and my nuscles get toned better this way too. I will not have to spend the fortune to buy a new set of exercise DVD's as well. they can get pretty pricey.

It's worth checking out. :) Hey, do me a favor when you sign up. tell them I referred you. Thanks. The nickname to put in the referral box is Kcrew5

Here is something i coppied and pasted form the site that tells about it.

You have original, playable DVDs that you do not want to keep.
You post those DVDs to your "DVD Tower" to offer to other members.
After you have posted the first 10 DVDs to your DVD Tower, you get 1 "gift" credit from SwapaDVD to get you started swapping (limit one per household). After that, you earn credits by sending out DVDs to others.
You may order available DVDs for 1 credit per disc (some DVDs do cost more than 1 credit)

If you want a DVD that is not currently available, you can place it on your Wish List and we will notify you by email when it is available for you to order. You can even have it sent to you automatically when it becomes available, with no email necessary.
When a DVD is requested from you, we notify you by email, provide the address for you to send it out, and even provide a wrapper with postage printed on it if desired!

Wrap and mail your DVD.

When the requestor receives it, you earn 1 credit per disc mailed. Yes, you pay the postage to send out your DVDs, but when you request a DVD, the sender ships it to you and you pay 1 DVD credit (some DVDs do cost more than 1 credit)!
The DVDs you receive from SwapaDVD are yours. We hope that you will repost them to share with other members when you have viewed them, but you can certainly keep them, or give them away. Similarly, the DVDs you send out to others belong to their new owners.
SwapaDVD is a great way to share DVDs with people all over the country!

Baby feet

These are the feet of our precious litle one! he is the newest addition to our family. He was born on 7/17 and we are totally and madly in love with him!!!

Sorry I have not blogged much but I was busy having a baby and then recovering from it all. I have been soaking in everything about this baby and the pregnancy as this will almost definitely be the last. :(

I will start to blog more often now that I seem to have a few minutes of time to do it but I can not guarantee it will be everyday. I will try to make it at least once a week. :)

Ta for now!
