Sandy has started a Wednesday blog-hop called 'Home is...' She gives themes each week and this week's theme is aprons. We share a photo and a story about aprons and "home."
Well...by golly, if the apron photo I have hasn't been made possibly by Miss Sandy herself! I won this adorable personalized apron from Reluctant Entertainer in 2007. It's the only one I have but I love it. I'd really like to expand my apron wardrobe - this one is sort of too cute and sentimental to me (my first little blog-friend gift) to use seriously.
But what says "home" more than a mommy in an apron and her baby on her hip? I'd say nothin' at all.

I don't mean to complain...I love my baby with a delicious fierceness. He's perfect. Mostly...just don't call me from 4 pm to 9 pm because:
1- I wouldn't hear the phone.
2 - Even if I heard it and picked up I would probably just whimper in your ear.
Life's rough in the evenings at the B. household.
All this to ask: Have you heard of the Tummy Tub or the Woombie? I've been eyeing them and seeing that they're touted as miracle solutions to the fussy baby problem. I'd love a chance to give them a shot and see if they'd work for the Little Mister.
Leave me a comment if you've heard anything about these products. I'm off to bounce the cutest miniature terror on the block. Bounce, bounce, bounce until my brain comes loose...

Stupid name? Yes. I agree. And I was a little skeptical about getting involved in this whole online phenomenon. Use the swagbucks search engine and win points? Go on little scavenger hunts for swagbucks "codes" and win points? Shopping via the swagbucks store and winning points?
Sounded like it would take too much time/effort and not be worth it.
Actually? It's kinda fun; and really not as excruciating as it sounds. And the payoff? Winning enough "swagbucks" gives opportunities to earn gift cards (the Amazon.com cards are my favorite) and other prizes.
I'm saving up my Amazon gift cards - real money, people! All for doing piddly little internet things - for something fun like one of these.
I'm telling you this so that you can sign up and win prizes too. Doncha wanna?
P.S. If you decide to sign up and become a SwagNerd, click the banner above and use me as a referral. I get swagbucks if you do and that means I'm closer to my fun gadget. :)
Or, you can click HERE.
Now, if we could just figure out a less ridiculous name for this Swagbucks thing...

If you said "no" or even, "eh..." you are a cold-hearted robot. And that's that.
Some of my favorite new baby-isms:
The closed-fist, double arm stretch. We call it "The SuperBaby" at our house.
The arch back stretch that can last for a full minute sometimes. Almost as cute as The SuperBaby.
Mistaking mommy's cheek for mommy's other, more productive body part and trying to latch on. Feels like sweet kisses...so that's what I pretend they are.
Smiles and giggles in his sleep.
The Blissed-Out Milk Coma.
What are your favorite newborn-isms?
My talented Sister In Law, Jamie, took a bunch of sweet photos of Britt. This one in his red pilot cap is one of my favorites.
