Rose is Four Months Old

Rose is a very happy baby, as you can see. She smiles a lot and is very talkative. She is friendly with everyone and is not afraid of people she doesn't know. Life is fun with her because she giggles and kicks and squeals! Rose is quite "grabby". She tries to get ahold of anything within her reach especially if you are holding something.

Current Statistics: 15 pounds 11 ounces, 25 inches long, 17 inch noggin' with a little more fuzz than last month, 0 teeth ;)


This was definitely a "lighter" week for us at CVS. The sales weren't great and there were a few things I wanted to get were out. I was pleased to get 6 toothbrushes, 10 more free prints (with the coupon that prints with the $3 off $15 coupon) and drinks for sharing after Samuel's Wednesday night game. I may make another trip today to get some sort of snack for sharing too. This is another reason I love shopping CVS. It really helps the general grocery budget in so many ways! My CVS managers are SUPER. Their policy is to take any coupon the customer brings in. I have been able to stack multiple coupons and keep my out of pocket totals very low. Not all stores allow this. The manager at my store said his rule came from his boss:0) Thank you CVS!
