5 Month Check Up

Well the Cheekers had his 5 month check up.
Good news:
Only gained 9 oz's, putting him at 22lbs, 11oz.
Length: 28.5 inches long

Now that not so good news:
Cheekers has a hernia.
He will have to have surgey to get it fixed, so I will be calling the surgeon in the morning.
I'm upset.
I know he will most likely be ok but still.
Called Bobby.
He told me Cheekers will be ok.
I am hoping Bobby can get home for his surgery.
Don't want to have to go over there alone.
Not that I would be alone but his daddy needs to be there.

That's your update.
Woops out!

Grandpop & The Cheekers

This is layout #2 for the contest over at
We had to do a layout about something funny with multiple colors & shapes. Hope I did it ok.

I have so much scrap stuff but can I stop buying more? Um, nooooooooooooooo! Erin & I hit The Scrapbook Station yesterday & The Happy Scrapper. Spent $$$ at both places! *SIGH*

I am also into thrift stores. So if you know any children's resale shops in South Jersey let me know b/c right now, all I can find is Goodwill. Not a bad thing at all (since I scored there before) but I would like to be able to find goodies all over.

On that note.....

#3 & #4 of 2007

This one was inspired by the infamous Kathy Carr. I saw her layout & her sketch & had to scraplift it! It rocked. I entitled this one "Adored by Women" because as you can plainly see....he is a charmer. The pics are from his 4 month photo shoot. My sister likes to use props & decided she would use my Little Souls doll as his "girlfriend". Hee hee. Anyway I must say...THANK YOU Kathy Carr for such inspiration!

This one was inspired by Elsie Flannigan. It's actually my contest entry for contest, Last Scrapper Standing. We had to do a fun layout without using the word fun. I did a play on the song Fergalicious by obviously doing Megalicious!

Well Wife Swap is on so that means....

Woops out!

Xmas 2005

Gotta love those vintage Daisy D papers. I bought a ton & hope to get to use them this weekend. Figured before I start 2006 photos, I should finish up 2005. Not overly thrilled with this layout but it will do.

Went shopping on my lunch hour for my girlfriend's baby shower gift. I sooooooooooo spaved! Last week I picked up the diaper bag she registered for. Today I went to Tar-jay, coupons in hand. I wanted to spend $20 to fill it up. I did. Well actually that is my sister's contribution but I picked it all up for her. Got her 2 onesies (in pink, it's a girl, they were on clearance), then I got her a bottle of wash & a bottle of shampoo by Johnson & Johnson that were on sale 2/$5. I had a $1 coupon for each, so it came to $1.50 each. Picked up A&D Diaper Ointment. Had a Free up to $3 coupon, so cost me .49 cents. Nuk pacifies, price cut to $2.89 + $1 coupon = $1.89 for 2 binks! 8 washclothes for $4.99 - $1.00 coupon = $3.99. Bows with the elastic thing for the babe's head on clearance for less than $3.00. Duckie gown for less than $5. Pampers Sensitive Wipes on price cut for $2.39 - $1 coupon = 1.39. I think I am missing something but Erin put it together tonight & it looks fabulous!!!!!!!!

On that note...

I Love You Baby!

I have been singing that song all day to the Cheekster. Of course, I don't know all the words, so I just say jibberish & go on with my bad self. He giggles everytime I sing it.

The layout above incorporates 3 challenges. First at it fills their sketch for January challenge. This sketch rocks!!!!! Seriously, I love it. Second, it fills the color challenge for using brown & blue over at . Finally it fills the challenge to use song lyrics as the title for a page that talks about your greastest moment in life over at (I think that's the url, not sure). Anyway it's this cool blog! I chose to do the greatest moment as finding out I was preggers with Cheeks. I used the new textured cardstock my dad got me for Xmas. It's from QVC & while it doesn't give the manuf. name, the cardstock is wonderful!!!! Seriously, it rocks. Comes as 12x12 packaged with 8x8. Oh yes, this is a new fav of mine. I also used the new kick ass primas he got me as well. They always kick ass!!!! To be honest, I am really diggin that layout. I think I might frame it. First time I would ever frame layout.

This weekend I decided I needed to save money on Cheeks clothes b/c well, I am addicted to Gymboree & let's just say, they ain't cheap! The sweater, pants & onesy that Cheeks has on in that photo was $60 & that was after coupons! Anyway I headed on over to Goodwill. My word, they are cheap. I didn't find jeans & you have to sift thru. some pretty icky stuff BUT I found almost brand new Old Navy swishy pants w/ a fleece lining for $1.99. Um, hello! $1.99 PEOPLE! Can't be beat. So I snatched those puppies up. That's all I found but I did find more, he just didn't need what I was finding so I restrained myself.

The Bobster returned to Rochester today. We spent little time together this weekend but I was just happy he was home. He forgives my outbursts of bitchiness a lot & I am grateful for that. Trust me! I was a lil bit of a bitch earlier today. I know, amazing but true.

Well all this talk of scrapping & saving money is giving me the ambition to balance my check book, pay bills & continue to scrap. I even had my sister drop off "The Devil Wears Prada" on DVD before she left to go out, so I will watch that. Already seen it & read it but it's a good chic flick!

Our first time in the high chair (which he absolutely loves!!)

Our first time in the new seat b/c our old one only goes to 25 lbs, so Mommy had to get one that goes to 40lbs! Aunt Erin put it together today. Thank goodness for Aunt Erin. Loves the seat too. He can actually grab the toys on this chair & when he's older it converts to a rocker.

Missing dog!!! Missing dog!!!! My beloved Henry has not been seen since my move.
He has scotch tape on his neck & nose due to some wearing over the last 30+ years.
If you see him, please let me know. Be on the lookout. He is friendly!!!!!
Let me know asap!

Doesn't it look as if he is saying "Who the Hell are you!?". You just have to love the exersaucer. Cheekers does. To the right, where you can't see, if a rubber orange lion that hangs from a green plastic hoop. He sucks the life out of it. It must feel good on his gums. Poor kid!

On another note, my neighbors must go. I don't know what the frig they are doing over there but it must involve burying a body or something. They have been pounding for the last 15 mins on the floor. Earlier I could hear the kids, plain as day, thru the monitor. My favorite of late is that they must have something in the room that backs up against Cheek's b/c I know get a "hummmmmmmmmmmmmm" when I turn on the monitor. I just don't know what I am going to do.

Woops out~!

Duex Teeth

Can you believe it??? This is how I found out:
Erin: Um, did he have 2 teeth when you left for work today?
Me: No.
Erin: He does now.

Yes, yes, the 2nd tooth broke thru & Cheekers now has his 2 bottom teeth.
It is the cutest thing in the entire world!!!!

Let's see...the Bobster has returned to work. Not that he wasn't working when he was here but he went away again. :<(
Last night he took me to Atlantic City to eat in one of the restaurants in the casino's, then we gambled $45 & left. Home by 10pm! I was beat. It was nice tho. & romantic. On Saturday morning, he went to work, but stopped home to give me Hot Chocolate & a muffin b/c he was thinking of me. Now that's romantic!!!!! I eat that stuff up!

I rearranged my storage over the weekend. I know have my scrap supplies in the living in a cabinet. So wish me luck that I will now find time to scrap. BAAHAAHAA! Funny thought, isn't it. BAAHAAAHAA!

Woops out!
