PC for Kylee!


So I'm in the process of attempting to win a baby friendly PC for Kylee. Why would I want to do such a thing? Well.. probably because our PC and laptop are tired of being beaten up by her precious little fingers, delicate head, and cute feet. They've had their share of abuse and then some! So when I found out that the lovely ladies over at Blogger Mommies was hosting a giveaway for a PC that is BABY FRIENDLY.. I jumped up and down for joy and jumped right on entering. Added bonus that the giveaway ends on November 9th..which is RIGHT before K's birthday, so when I win.. I hope they have quick shipping!


So what exactly makes this PC so baby friendly? Well.. let me tell you! Easy PC allows children to use a computer, safely and easily, with a special keyboard that is designed for their small hands, and special software programs that have phenomenal educational and play value. So not only is it stimulating their minds but it's also saving your wallet! Most PCs these days are $600+ and you have to sell your arm and possibly your leg to get one in this economy. Well.. Easy PC retails for about $70 and comes with the First Steps software so you can play it straight out of the box. So your wallet will get a break as well as your own keyboard.


My daughter loves playing at the computer and I'll let her listen to music on it or bang the crap out of the keys type in a word document or something. My computer would like a break though and I'm hoping this Easy PC will be in our household for Kylee's birthday this year. But..because I have to blog to spread the word.. head on over to Blogger Mommies and enter.. but not too much.. because this win is meant to be ours!

One, Toooo, Teee

So I have discovered that Kylee will count to three if you start by saying "One" and hold up a finger. I used my camera to catch it on video so the quality isn't stellar.. but it sure is darn cute! I say "One" and she says "Tooooo" "Teee" !!! Love it, don't ya? I figured. (Oh and please ignore the fact that I need a manicure something fierce and terrible.)

Wait! What?

Wait! Are you trying to tell me that my baby girl is going to be 11 months old tomorrow? What? Are you positive about that? I'm pretty sure I just gave birth to that big headed and big hearted babe with a big attitude not that long ago.



Wait! So that means I have ONE month to get all of her birthday plans in order. I don't do well under pressure. I never have. What am I going to do? Well.. besides stress until my hair falls out.. I'm going to get my ass in gear and finalize some things and order some things and wipe my tears away while doing it all.



One thing I am mucho excited about is the long awaited day where I didn't have to buy formula anymore. What person in their right mind likes shelling out a kidney and a right arm every month to buy powdered milk in a can? Not I... Not I... and on that note..I wanna throw out a big thanks to my boobs for failing me.. Nice job!



We're going to start using the sippy cup more and slowly taking away the bottle. I'm just waiting for Kylee to realize that a sippy is waaaaa-aaaay cooler than a stinky old bottle. But you know Kylee.. she does what she wants...when she wants..how she wants. But our goal is to cut the bottle shortly after she turns 1.



WAIT! What was the point of this post again? I mean aside from the fact that I've neglected this blog for how many days now.. The point of this blog was to inform you all that my baby girl is going to be 11 months old tomorrow and I'm not ready.




Wait! What's that? Yes.. we already had our first snow. Yes..I went and bought my cutie some winter snow attire that very same day. Yes...it all melted the next day. Nebraska........

Spring, Summer, WINTER?!

Well.. it's not really Winter right now. I was clearly being dramatic and what else is new? Although it's not Winter..these nipple freezing cold temperatures sure could lead someone to believe that Fall has taken to hibernating for the year. We have no snow, but we're waking up to high 30's and lower 40's and crazy strong winds.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons because I love opening the windows and getting the fresh, cool, crisp air moving through my house. Well..in these temperatures if we open the windows not only is it bone chilling air that comes in, but a small tornado starts in my house because the winds are so strong. I also thought I would be able to sit out back and enjoy a few drinks with Tim this time of year without dying of heat stroke or acquiring the ever sexy swamp ass. Alas..that idea is out the window too. You get blown away or frozen to your seat if you sit outside at night now.

So I'm going to go drop an email to Mother Nature real quick and ask her when she's going to stop jerking me around and give me my damn Fall weather. Until she responds though, I will continue to stay cooped up in my house, dressed head to toe (not literally) in anything made of fleece, wool, or heavy cotton and observe "Fall" through the window. Thanks Mother Nature. You suck.
