Blake has started to get more mobile. He forgets that he can move quite often. If you let him fuss it out he figures out he can do it. His new favorite toy is his wipes. I think it's because it crinkles and slides easily. He started to crawl on Sunday and he was chasing his wipes. He is starting to smile and laugh more. When you smile at him, most of the time he smiles back. He loves it when I give him kisses on the cheek. He thinks it the funniest thing. He has recently started touching Jeremy an I's face an grabbing at it.
This is how he sleeps most nights
Friday after work we went and got Blake and headed to IKEA. We had to return the baskets that we had originally bought for Blake's play room but didn't fit. We got a sweet lamp for the playroom instead. We had dinner at IKEA and then headed to the outlets near a Casino on the east side. I wasn't too impressed. I like our outlets a lot better. They hardly had any stores that we like. They did have a cool baseball store. We almost bought Blake a baby baseball bat an ball but they didn't have a diamondback one. :(
Saturday we went to work. Then, Blake and went shopping. We went to Target and spent the gift card Blake got from Grandma Krass. He picked out some sweet new toys! I also picked out a new outfit! Then we headed to CVS. I have tried to coupon there once a week. I do it totally for fun now but my hobby does save us a lot of money. I don't go for free stuff as much anymore. Most of the things I get we pay something for but we are saving money on things we need. Like diapers, wipes. etc. We haven't bought any wipes since Blake was born because I couponed for them and got them for free before he was born. Anyways Blake decided to have a little tantrum at CVS but I kept going and got everything I planned and we did pretty good. We paid 4 bucks for everything! That's over $50 savings. :)
After we went with Jeremy to a furniture store. We found a radio shack that was going out of business and picked up some ink for 30% off and a portable speaker for Primary. At the furniture store we got a new rug for Blake's room an a side table for the playroom.
We went to a new pizzeria that just opened up by us for an early dinner. It was pretty yummy! Then, we walked around all the stores. Jeremy got stuff at BestBuy and I couldn't help myself at Old Navy! I have been looking for church shoes for Blake and I found them!! So naturally I had to buy a few outfits to go with them. :)
Sunday Blake slept in till 8 which was nice. I didn't but I got to relax. :) We are starting to get the hang of teaching Primary. I plan all the activities the night before and we decided to just invest money into a Primary bag which has all the supplies we need so we don't have to go to the library every week. It makes it a lot less stressful. Blake did really good falling asleep for his nap. He likes to scream when he's happy and I get a lot of looks but I just need to ignore them because I'm not going to yell at a happy baby.
I couldn't decide which one I liked the most. So I will post all of them. They all show a part of his personality!
After church we went to the park and had a picnic. Blake fell asleep on the way so he didn't get to have fun with us. Jeremy took Chloe over to the dog park while I relaxed with Blake. Surprisingly it was really cold but we still had fun.
