Woman gives birth to octuplets in SoCal hospital

As if seven babies weren’t enough, the eighth baby came as a BIG surprise to the new mommy to be! She is planning on breast feeding/pumping for all of them! Bless this woman!

She had 6 boys and 2 girls. I'm starting to think this may be a great way to get your family done in 1 shot. something to look into! :)

Did you read the book? I can't wait to see this cast! I hope the movie is just as good. Feb. 6th is the big night!

We threw a Kellogg Kid Party and introduced the Chinese New Year Traditions to the kids. It is the year of the Ox.
Davis is a PIG. I am a monkey.

It is fun to read about yourself and the kid crafts are pretty fun. Get creative!

Track bottle or nursing feeding times with iPhone or ipod.

Smartphones are a mother's best friend. From taking notes on the go, keeping track of appointments, or finding the nearest bathroom, there is little our fancy phones can't do for us.

They can even keep tabs on baby's feeding habits. The
Baby Tracker: Nursing app (available for download on iPhone, iTouch or iPod for $8) tracks nursing sessions so you don't have to carry a pen and paper and worry about frequency.

The app allows you to record the length of your baby's nursing session and side you nursed on to generate a detailed history and log. IF you dont nurse you can also record bottle feedings by time (for example milk or formula) and the amount your hungry infant consumed.

Love the idea of using the iPod for parental support? Download it on itunes.

Anyone up for the JOB? :)L

Pregnancy is exciting for any mama-to-be, but add a friend with a growing belly and it's nine months of fun! Having a partner in crime when it comes to hitting up baby boutiques and deciding on the best stroller can make the expectant stage pure bliss. Were you pregnant at the same time as any of your friends?

All aboard! If you want one toy that will occupy your tot for hours upon hours, invest in a train table and then spruce it up with the Talking Railway Series from Learning Curve. Amazing engine recognition technology brings the world of Thomas to life with personalized greetings from Sir Topham Hatt himself. The Great Discovery Set ($150) includes the Great Waterton Station and Morgan’s Mine, Stanley and Thomas engines, and additional train tracks.
Pretty pricey but you can slowly add on to the set.
Sunkist is giving kids portable stands so they can make charitable lemonade. The citrus giant is making a sweet deal with children aged 7 to 12 — sell juice from a portable stand they ship and then donate the proceeds to a good cause. Their Take a Stand campaign recruited more than 15,000 kids from the United States and Canada in 2008.

The company plans on sending out 20,000 more stands this year. If your youngster wants to be part of this Summer project, fill out an online application. Tips for running a profitable business and thirst quencher recipes can also be found on the site.

Sign up online instead of the mail-in form. You can receive your first 5 movies for 20cents if you order online. So I paid $1 for 5 disney movies. You are committed to buying 4 in the next 2 years. I have my 5 movies and I only paid $1. No shiping charge either!
