My baby will be 9 weeks tomorrow. She was born at home without complication, was placed on my chest right away, nursed within an hour of her birth, is growing/gaining well, and has no medical concerns and has not been vaxed. My question is this; Is it normal for a baby this age NOT to engage people by smiling and cooing? She does smile and coo, but it isn't necesarily at people. She will smile and coo at the candle holder on our wall and at the toy hanging from...

For instance, if I go to the yarn store to buy something with my allowance, and I pick up some mints, it all comes out of my personal money, even though mints are "food" and I share them with my husband. (sometimes ) But if I'm at the grocery store, and buy some mints, they come out of the grocery envelope. And if we are at Menards buying a tool for DH,...

At Target or Costco, I may have non food items, grocery items, clothing items,...
How do you deal with purchases from different categories at the same store? For example: Our local drugstore sells milk cheaper than the grocery store. Sometimes we buy milk and toiletries at the same time, however, we have a "toiletries" envelope and a "grocery" envelope. I am just wondering how other families handle this. If we were only buying milk at the drug store it wouldn't be a big deal to have separate bills, but at a place like Costco, or Walmart...
: Me too! I am in full nesting mode as our 4th is due to arrive in a few weeks. I can't wait to PURGE PURGE and PURGE some more! I think for me, in addition to nesting, fall is usually a time of purging and decluttering. It's just a nice way to get the house nice and cozy for the winter season.:
We just gave two bags of toddler clothes away. I LOVE giving stuff away. We are currently trying to find a home for our love seat.

We do the same thing in our house - we keep Christmas very low key in terms of gifts and focus on the religious meaning of the Holiday. One set of Grandparents is on board - the other not so much. We have learned to live with it, and so far the kids don't seem to think that Christmas is about gifts because of the one set of g-parents. One idea that has worked REALLY well for us is to have all extended family members contribute to a night away. For us it has been to...
