Happy Half Birthday to Boo!

Today is Boo's Half Birthday! 6 months ago I was giving birth to the greatest joy in my life.

He slept a little better last night, from 8 pm to 3 am, which is a good stretch. I went to bed around 9:30, so I got a good amount of sleep. Then at 3 am, he wanted to talk... Fun... Then he slept from 4 am till 7 am. I did Tylenol again at bedtime. He didn't have an evening nap, so maybe if I get home earlier and he takes an evening nap, bedtime can be later and maybe he will sleep later. Maybe not.

Nathan is super obsessed with buying a car. I know it's easy to do. You start looking and comparing. There are endless combinations of options. I am thinking that it will be better all around. It just feels strange making such a big purchase when my goal right now is to cut expenses and save money. But this should help. I'm hoping he can test drive all the ones we like, and then when he narrows it down to two or three, me and Boo can come along, and we can actually put his carseat in the car. Right now we are thinking about the Toyota Rav4, Dodge Journey, and the Chevrolet Equinox. They're all in the same price range. I want a smooth ride, lower car payment, roomy enough for the car seat, and quality enough to last for 5 years. Does anyone own any of these? Suggestions?


  1. Holly I would go with the Rav4. Toyota makes great cars that last forever and they hold their value. My dad and taylor both drive toyotas and they both have over 100,000 miles and are running fine. I've never been dissapointed with toyotas.

  2. I can't believe he is 6 months old! Time sure does fly...

    Good luck with the car search. We need a new one too - timing isn't so great though!

  3. Happy 6 mo Birthday Boo! =D

  4. I second the Toyota vote, however, parts are cheaper for Chevys. My DH is a mechanic and he always talks about how many problems Dodge vehicles have so....something to keep in mind!
