A little baby fun...

Does anyone else watch 'Wonder Pets'? I highly recommend it. Im watching it as I write this morning. I love the catchy tunes and I find myself singing it to my daughter... She also enjoys her Baby Einstein DVD, especially the baby mozart, because its not too complicated like baby einstein neighborhood animals which seem more advanced. she just likes listening to the music and the sounds and colors. We both try to keep her busy throughout the day when shes not eating, sleeping, or pooping. Yesterday her grandmother took her to get pictures! It made me want to get parent pictures with her. We will plan on that next week. The wife is going back to work tomorrow. Today she had jury duty but it was cancelled so she is staying home! Yeah another paid day and she doesnt have to take leave to be home. Great!

Moneywise, we earned approx. $70 in interest last month. Woohoo! I just transferred the money to our bank account. Thats good for at least a weeks worth of groceries. Im optomistic that with $1000 in the bank for groceries, gas, and other basic living expenses for the month, we are over budgeted and will come out ahead. Time to make some breakfast/lunch...

Baby Einstein DVD, is so cool. I was thinking about getting that for my daughter. She is only 1 so I will wait a while.

How old is your daughter?

I just saw the left side of your blog Feb. 15, 2007. She is very young for DVD, you are starting early.

By the way for a 26 year old. You and your wife are doing very very well financially. Congrats!

She focuses on the tv while sitting in her bouncy seat. She will laugh and coo at the colorful parts. Like I said the baby einstein baby motzart one is the best for her age bc there are hardly any words. We tried baby einstein neighborhood animals taht went way over her head. I appreciate that last comment too!
