This video just shows some typical play time for Ziva. She has lots of fun in her bathroom, exploring and pulling all the towels and washcloths from her little bin. Nothing extraordinary, but it's cute, and make sure you have the volume up so you can hear her talking to herself. She's been a chatterbox today!

I'm still new so I've got a long way to go before I'm making the most of my coupons, but I've made a couple of good deals this week, and the latest one was at Walgreens yesterday. Here's what I got:
1 box each of Honey Nut Cheerios, Golden Grahams, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch
3 bars of Dove soap
2 Dove invisible solid deodorants
1 Dove cream oil body wash
1 box of Kleenex
The total I paid out of pocket, with tax, was $4.15. My total savings was $28.46! And my out of pocket would have been much lower if I hadn't bought the Kleenex, because I didn't really have a good deal for them, but we really needed them. So there you go! We just wanted to share this great resource in case anyone else is up for a fun challenge. I'm looking forward to the summer so I can devote more time to getting better at this!

- Ziva's first birthday is in two weeks, so I need to plan her party AND do her baby scrapbook. I bought a scrapbook last summer, but haven't even touched it since then. It's one of those kits that has everything included, so hopefully that will speed the process along. Right now I'm working on sorting out pictures to decide which ones make it into the album.
- Get organized! We're thinking about downsizing to a 2/1 from a 2/2 when our lease is up in May, and that means it would be smart to clean out any accumulated junk. Our closests really need to be cleaned out, so that's first on the list. Even if we don't downsize, we could still use our closets more efficiently.
Hmm, that's about it. It doesn't look like much in bullet form, but it should keep me busy. Plus the weather is supposed to be in the 70s all week, so I'm sure Ziva and I will spend plenty of time playing outside!

She has also taken to dragging around fabric.....anything that's handy, whether it's a blanket, towel, or laundry (clean or dirty, doesn't matter!) I'm not sure if it's the beginnings of a security blanket need, or just a little phase, but it's pretty cute.

In other news, I'm expecting that after her one year check up in a few weeks, we'll be needing to upgrade to a forward facing car seat. Can anyone who's passed that stage recommend a seat you love? I can spend hours reading recommendations on-line, or trust people I know. Sounds like a no brainer. :)
