Shopping On-line

So I decided to start price compare everything that I buy.. in store vs online. So far I have found some stuff to be a lot cheaper on line and some to be a lot cheaper in the store. I really want to cut back our grocery bill, especially with adding another mouth to feed and butt to change. Hopefully I can breastfeed as long, if not longer, than I did with August. I just feel like it's going to be hard because August will want to know what the hell is going on with a baby on my boob!
Anyway.. totally off subject but..
I know 10 people pregnant (one not personally, but know of.. and that 10 includes me) 4 of which have found out they are having a girl, 1 a boy, 4 of us haven't found out yet (Rachael on Saturday, I find out on the 9th of March), and 1 is not finding out (Tara).
I heard it is year of GIRLS.. so far it has held true.
And to make things right here...
Yes, I really want a girl.. but I also would LOVE a boy, because I would love for August to have a brother! If the doctor says.. there's a penis, I'm going to be just as excited as if he were to say it's a girl!
All I really care about is having a healthy, happy, baby. A baby like August because he was a good little baby, however, I hope this baby eats better than August! He's currently eating chocolate cheerios.. and will only eat PB&J for lunch AND dinner.
He's a freak.

Mothers or Mothers-to-be.. If your kids are still in diapers.

Ok so I know diapers are freaking expensive! But I have been using Amazon.com subscribe & save, but people kept saying oh well I use Costco, they are the cheapest. YOU ARE WRONG. I did some price comparison tonight since I'm going to be buying MORE diapers real soon...
I found amazon.com to be around .05 cents cheaper per diaper.. yeah .05 cent doesn't sound like a lot, but when it's 216 diapers...that's almost $11! I really think you should look into amazon.com for baby stuff! I just signed up for wipes and I got 4 packs of 180 for around $15...when I went to the store they were on sale for $5.99 or something like that.. ONE PACK.. so I pretty much saved another $9!
I am just trying to help you save money.. so please look into it! It is well worth it!!!!

Going on day 3.

So I haven't been on facebook since late Saturday morning. It is weird. I usually wake up, check the news, then go on facebook...all while still laying in bed. But now I wake up.. and do nothing. I just lay in bed until August forces me out. And during the day I just look at my phone.. and then put it down. It's kind of weird. But I needed to get away from the addiction. I also was getting bored over it, so it was a good time to do it.
So Saturday night I was texting with Danielle and I told her how I just want to cry about being pregnant because this pregnancy has been a rough one for me. She told me things I should change in my diet and then the best thing of all.. MAYBE IT'S THE IRON IN YOUR PRENATAL VITAMINS..so that night, I didn't take one. The next morning I woke up.. no upset stomach.. I could eat anything.. no upset stomach. It was like a miracle I tell you! So I took one of August's flintstones vitamins, it has a lot less iron, and this morning I haven't felt that upset stomach feeling. I am going to call the doctor later and ask him what I should do. My sister in law told me to take half in the morning and half at night. I know I still need a vitamin, but this feeling of not having an upset stomach is amazing.
Although I still don't have much energy, I think it is due to me just being straight up lazy.
We find out hopefully in 2 1/2 weeks what we are having. Of course it is on Wiss' birthday, everything great happens in August or March for us! Dang, I just realized that if our appointment is in 2 1/2 weeks.. on March 9th.. Jackson will be 2 in less than 2 1/2 weeks because his birthday is March 5! Crazy LORI!
I know this is such a random post, but I feel like since I don't post every hour on facebook, I'll be posting a lot more on here!
Also- Augie's birthday. I'm thinking simple.. park with cupcakes and a pinata. The older kids will enjoy that, and the younger kids parents will like the candy! I will probably do Paul Frank themed this year since Target sells everything Paul Frank these days.
Well that's all for now.
I hope everyone has a blessed day!

Damn sick of being sick.

So last Tuesday I could tell August was catching a cold. And then come Wednesday it was full blown cough and fever. Thursday his fever went away and now he just has a cough that I'm sure he will have for a few weeks! Then comes Friday.. I woke up with a sore throat.. I thought maybe it was just that morning sore throat and I'll get better. Well I woke up Saturday.... completely sick with a head cold. My left ear has been hurting since Satuday, my sore throat did go away, but now I just have a stuffy head. I've been sneezing an insane amount. I have snot dripping out of my nose. I feel like my head is going to explode. When I take tylenol.. the only thing I can take, my ear feels better, but the second it wares off.. AHH.
It sucks that I got sick THIS weekend, when we had so much fun things to do: Michelle's birthday dinner & Superbowl Sunday with the Haynies/McDonalds! BUMMER. But I have to make sure I'm better by this next weekend because it is my grandma's 90th birthday party and my parents are coming out. I have to make 48+ cupcakes, pick up a cake, flowers, drive to Lemoore! So much stuff to do. Plus I have to pick up my parents and brother in Santa Barbara!
I am really excited for them to come out, I just really hope I'm better!
