Halloween Deals

It’s the last day of the month of September. Halloween will be coming pretty soon. Hubby and I are planning to get Tyler a Halloween costume. The other week, we were looking for different costumes that would fit Tyler but we couldn’t find one plus they cost a lot. So, I am thinking about shopping online because I know a lot of these online stores will be offering discounts for Halloween costumes and I might be able to find great Halloween deals from among these online stores. There are some websites that offer coupon codes for these online stores where you can get discounts like 10% to 50% off. A great savings to avail for sure.

Three months old

Tyler is now 3 months and 1 week old, I couldn't beleive how fast the day goes by and how fast a baby can grow. My little one has been doing great. At 3 months he can make different sounds now. He goos and gurgles more and more. I have been teaching him to say mama and dada and I have been talking to him. It's really fun when he starts talking back to me even though the words he utters they are not recognizable yet. I loved to tickle him when I change his clothes because he would laugh out loud. I have been teaching him to hold his bottle when I am feeding him. He started holding his bottle although he can't control his hands yet. Last night, while I was feeding him I showed hubby how he held his bottle and he was very surprised at Tyler holding his bottle.

Another car

I’m so excited to start working, I will be driving  17 miles everyday to go to work and get back home. Since my step daughter has been using my car to go to her work, we might be needing another car at some point. She might end up not having any car to if I drove my car or hubby can take me to work to drop me off and pick me up but it’s going to a big hassle for him especially if my schedule will be on the evening or night shift. If we get another car, we would need to get car insurance for it which is another expenses. Hubby is checking for car insurance quotes online to check for the cheapest car insurance we could get then.

I got the job!

Got great news today! I just received a call from Angela who interviewed me the other day for the CNA job I applied for and told me that they already did the background check for me and it was all good. She said I’m ready to go and asked me when I would like to start for my training. I told her, I would like to start on Monday. She said I could start my training on the evening shift from 2 pm til 10 pm and I said that it’s fine with me. She also said I could come in at 1:00 in the afternoon to sign some papers before I begin my training. Geeze! I’m so excited but nervous at the same time. This will be my first job here in the U.S.

It's Friday!

Another Friday and another weekend, days are coming by so fast. Tyler is growing fast too! I could not believe that he will be 3 months old on the 23rd of this month. I have observed a lot of changes on Tyler within the last couple of months. Physically, he is growing up for sure. He's been more alert during the day, he only take short naps and he sleeps more during the night. Last night he slept at around 7 p.m. and woke up at around 4 in the morning. Last night was the longest time he slept. He went back to sleep at 4:45 a.m. after I fed him, then woke up again at 6:15. He always wake up in the morning with a happy mood. He smiles, laughs and coo especially when I start talking to him. He is exploring his voice, he makes sounds as if he wants to talk to me or his dad. Sometimes I would tickle him and he would laugh so loud. Oh, it makes my day when I see him laugh!

Job application

I was checking the internet earlier looking for a job opening here in the valley. I was looking for CNA job since I have my license for a year now and I wanted to have the experience which is really needed for my license to be renewed next year. Luckily, I found one job being posted through our county’s workforce center website. Since, I don’t have my car because my step daughter has been using it I told hubby to take me to the nursing home facility which is about 17 miles from home, so I could apply and fill out the application for the said job. I went there and fill out the application and was interviewed right away. The lady who interviewed me was so nice and I liked the way she interviewed me because it was just a casual conversation which helped me felt at ease. She told me to go ahead and take my urine sample for drug test, I did it right there in the facility. The result was negative then she told me they will do background check. She said when everything is done, they will call me back. I think I got the job, I hope so. I’m excited to start my first job. While I was inside the facility hubby was parked outside waiting for me. I tried to call his phone to tell him that it will take me for awhile to come out from the facility but he didn’t answer. I thought his phone died on him but thought it shouldn’t be because he had his iphone car charger and he can charge it. Then it crossed my mind that he might have forgotten his iphone at home. He always forget his phone that I have to remind him about it every time we go out but forgot to remind him this time.

Hubby has been using his iphone for more than 6 months now and he liked it a lot. I’m thinking of having one in the future when my Nokia celphone won’t function anymore. When he bought his iphone he also bought  an iphone case for it. He asked me if I would want a new celphone during that time but I said no because my celphone is still working good. Hmmm, I was just too shy and was hesitant to tell him I want a new one like his iphone. Ha,ha,…. Well if my celphone die on me and won’t be any good I will tell him I would like an iphone too and would like also to get iphone accessories with it. I already know where to find those iphone accessories and it's at mobilefun.co.uk where everything about mobile phones are found in this place.

Oriental Store

We just got home from the Oriental store and bought the main stuffs I need for cooking like Silver Swan soy sauce, Datu Puti vinegar, and two bags of Mung Beans and red beans. I also bought 2 cans of sardines and wheat noodles (misua). Too bad the Oriental store we have here in Grand Junction is not that big and doesn't carry as much Filipino products. Though we have Filipino store also but it's not as big either and the owner sold the business to another Filipina but until now I haven't gone to where it is located now since the store has moved to another location.

I need new return address labels

My brother’s wife has just delivered her second baby girl last June. Her baby is about Tyler’s age since they are only couple of weeks a part. She said she needs a “snuggly” to use to help her carry her baby while doing chores in the house and since I have two “snuggly” I’m thinking about sending the other one to her. I already packed the stuff and ready to put the address on the package when I remember that I won’t be able to use our return address labels since we have a new home address now. Well, I guess I just have to write down our address on the package for now. I know there is a good place to order those return address labels like 123prints.com where thousands of designs are available to choose from and you can personalize your design too at very affordable price.

Moving with ease

We have finally settled in our new home and have been here for 11 days. It took us about couple of months to find the right place to move. Almost everyday hubby and I go out and drive around the valley to check for houses for rent that is close by the old home we had lived since hubby’s two younger children goes to school near that area. We are so glad that finally we found the right place we were looking for. It’s just approximately 6 miles from where we used to live and we are accessible to everywhere because we are in the downtown area now. Moving is really stressful, I am just happy that we moved close by and we didn’t have to move to another state which we thought we might. It would have been more stressful and more costly for sure. Although moving to another state might still happen in the future if hubby gets a good paying job and be able to buy another house since the house we left was foreclosed. Yes, it was foreclosed because we couldn’t afford to pay the monthly mortgage anymore after hubby’s working hours were cut off in January and eventually lost the job in March. Hubby is one of the million Americans who lost his job and we are one of those families who have lost home because of the recession. Well, that’s life and it’s all good for now. I know there are a lot of people who have moved from another place because of what’s going on with our economy.

Speaking of moving, I know of a site that offers a lot of information and guide when it comes to moving. It’s called moveme.com where you can find a comprehensive information, resources and guide to help you move into your new home with ease. Whether you are selling or buying a house, Move Me will help you get all the necessary information to help you accomplish your task because they provide you with information on how to find a  good Conveyancing Solicitor that would help you know the legal process on buying or selling a property. If you are looking for House Conveyancing or Property Conveyancing services in the UK, Move Me will help you find the leading household companies in the area.  Planning to move soon? Check out moveme.com and make your moving easy and less stressful. It’s absolutely free to sign up!

Colds

I started snezzing and my throat got sore last monday and the next day it got worst. I took some medicine for colds and sore throat and I'm glad that it got better and I didn't get cough. Now, Tyler has the colds and I think he has sore throat too.  He is good at dealing with it too. I thought he will have a hard time last night but he slept good even if has stuffy nose. He was fussy earlier but he finally fall asleep.  It's hard when babies get sick. I start checking the internet about how to treat baby's colds and here's what I found out.

How should you treat baby's cold?

No medicine will make a virus go away faster, but you can help your baby feel better and prevent the infection from getting worse by making sure he gets plenty of rest and liquids. For babies under 4 months, that means breast milk or formula. At 4 months your baby can also have a little water, and at 6 months he can start drinking juices.

Since most children can't master nose blowing until about age 4, here are a few ways to help ease your baby's congestion.

• Tip your baby's head back and squeeze over-the-counter saline (salt water) drops into his nostrils to loosen up the mucus. Then suction out the liquid and mucus a few minutes later with a rubber bulb syringe. If your baby is having trouble nursing with a stuffy nose, try this tactic about 15 minutes before a feeding. He'll then be able to breathe and suck at the same time. Apply petroleum jelly to the outside of your baby's nostrils to reduce irritation. (Don't use nasal sprays on your baby unless his doctor says it's okay. They may work temporarily but can cause a rebound effect in which the congestion gets worse with continued use.)

• Use a humidifier or a cool-mist vaporizer to moisten the air in your baby's room. Or take your baby into the bathroom with you, turn on the hot water, close the door, and sit in the steamy room for about 15 minutes. A warm bath can accomplish the same thing.

• Elevate the head of your baby's mattress by placing a couple of towels between the head of the mattress and the crib springs. Sleeping at a slight incline may help relieve his postnasal drip, but don't overdo it. If your baby is a restless sleeper, he could end up flipping around so his feet are higher than his head, defeating the purpose of the elevation. (Never use pillows to prop up your baby as they could suffocate him. And don't put anything under the legs of the crib because that could make it unstable.) You might even consider letting your baby snooze in his car seat in a semi-upright position.

New place

We have just moved to a new place that's why I haven't updated my blog for several days. We have been busy packing and moving our things since Monday. We like the place we live right now. We are still in the same city and state, we just moved less than 10 miles away from the old place. I'm glad that our internet connection was installed earlier. Things are doing well, though we are still busy unpacking and organizing all of our stuffs in the house.
