What a deal! I just a post that Southwest Airlines is doing a getaway sale. http://www.thefrugalgirls.com/2009/10/southwest-airlines-72-hr-sale-25-50-75.html Some great deals! I've been playing around to see where we could go and for what price. Too bad we don't have the money or a trip to use it on. I could get round-trip tickets to Orlando for only $100 a person so just $300 for our whole family. Too bad we can afford a trip to Disney before the trip dates are over. The sale is good till the 29th. You have to travel between Dec 2-16 or Jan 5-Feb 10. So if you need to get away hurry and book your flight. :) Have fun!

A friend of mine Nikki Painter is doing a giveaway on her blog for a free 1 year membership to ClickinMoms.com. Here is the direct link to the blog post.

I would LOVE to win this giveaway. Even though I have a photography business I know I have a lot to learn and would love to surround myself with moms just like me who love photography. I wanted to join the site but just couldn't justify the cost right now when we have other important needs. If you could use the giveaway go sign up to win! Maybe one of us will be blessed.
Finally feeling much better! Still have some sinus drainage and coughing but not as bad as I did. Corgan still has a little bit of a lingering cough....and his eyes are really tired looking but I think he's getting better too. I had a little bout with a blocked milk duct or so this weekend..so I'm working on keeping that clear.

I always thought I'd hate using any formula for Keelan but I'm not totally against it. I'm glad that I'm giving him at least 90% of his food from breastmilk. I've gone longer than I ever did with Corgan. I'm loving every day and every feeding that I'm able to have with him. I'm really going to miss our nursing relationship whenever it ends but I'm hoping it's later than sooner. When asked how long I want to nurse I just say I'm taking it day by day. I want to get to 3 months, 6 months, etc. I don't want to impose goals on myself and then get upset when I don't meet them. So this is my way of attaining my breastfeeding goals. I know in the long run I'd love to make it to 1 year or even 2.

We have found out that Corgan is quite jealous of Keelan. Whenever I am gone and take Keelan with me, Corgan is an angel for Marshall. If I am home or I leave Keelan at home too, Corgan becomes a terror. Not sure what we can do to take care of the situation. Any advice from you been there done that moms?
