I am not paid to say this! At least, not yet. :)

BabySteals is having a birthday bash, and I am giving them a shout out. They run the best deal-a-day baby site on the web, and you should totally check it out. The stuff they sell is actually impossible to come by at a discount anywhere else - it's true. Their shipping is dirt cheap (if you live in Utah you can even pick up!), their service is great and the merchandise is fantastic.

I became attached to their deals with the Aden&Anais blankets. I needed a light muslin blanket for my summer baby, and guess what? They are not cheap. Try $60 for a pack of 3 or 4. Aden and Anais make really gorgeous and high quality blankets, and BabySteals offers them HALF PRICE. I have never found these deals anywhere else! And they also sell Sleep Sacks. Robeez shoes. Teething Bling. All half price or less. Hello.

So go, sign up for their alerts and save some money. Tell your husband it's not impulse purchasing, it's advanced planning! For, you know, the future. Which is coming. And you might as well have an Aden and Anais blanket to wrap yourself, er,your baby into. :)

A new low....err, Milestone.

It's our dinnertime. I'm feeding Elijah baby food: "Pasta Dinner", meaning pasta, tomatoes, carrots, string beans and peas, all pulverized and smashed together. It's like a perfect blend of all things he doesn't like.

(Me) "Baby, have a spoon, here you go."
(Elijah) Takes one taste of the "Pasta Dinner". Makes a grimace that exercises every muscle in his face. Sticks out tongue.
(Me) "One more spoon!"
(Elijah) Professionally ducks the spoon coming at him and starts to rub his eyes. Makes a sleepy cry, pushes away the food and rubs eyes some more. Sniffles. Makes every sign that he is just too sleepy to eat.
(Me) Oh you are sleepy. Poor baby.
(Elijah) Disintegrates further, rubbing eyes and whining, trying to get out of high chair and onto my lap.
(Me) Opening a jar of pear raspberry baby food which he likes
(Elijah) Suddenly no longer sleepy. Opens mouth and starts munching on the tasty food. Following dinner, plays for another 30 minutes without a single sign of sleepiness - that is, until presented with the antibiotics he has to take. Got suddenly sleepy again at that point.

I am very proud. My baby, a manipulator - and only 8 months! Yes! We can truly hope he will go further then we have.... I think I didn't learn to try and screw with people until at least 3. :)
