Julia Paige!

Well, she's FINALLY here! The doctor's decided I needed to be induced on Friday because baby's heart rate was dropping whenever I would have a contraction. So we went to the hospital and Julia Paige was born on Saturday morning at 10:38 am. She was 6 lbs 12 oz and 19 in long. She is so precious!

The new big sister!
We took that picture of Katey when she was 5 days old. They look identical!

and still waiting...

Yes I know, the ticker up above says I'm 41 days pregnant. No baby yet. Today is officially the latest due date I have gotten. Last Wednesday was the first so that's what I was going by. I guess it was just wishful thinking! Apparently she's not ready to come out yet, though I'm pretty much ready! Pray for me because I'm a little freaked out about the delivery part. Knowing what to expect has made this second one worse than the first! I just can't wait for it to be over and for Julia to be here! I know Jason is really excited and anxious for her to be here too! Hopefully she'll come soon....

a really cool website!

So on Tuesday at MOPS one of the other moms at my table and I were talking about couponing and price matching at Walmart and budgets and all that good stuff. She gave me this website and it is SO cool! If your family has any kind of budget, if you like saving money, this website is totally for you! One part that I'm particularly excited about is CVS. I had no idea CVS could be so cool! She explains all about how to get stuff for free there and I just can't wait! Another way we save money in our family is to shop at Wal-Mart for our groceries (Super Wal-Mart or Neighborhood Markets) because they price match other grocery store's prices. We have saved SO much money by shopping there, mainly on produce and meats! I'm a big fan!
