Clara's Animal Sounds

Clara is a funny girl. Here is a video of what sounds she thinks animals make.

What is this?!?!

So apparently my hands just can't get a break. My finger is finally healed up from me cutting a piece of it off back in January, but now I have something new and intriguing. Just take a look at these lovely pictures:

I couldn't sleep, so I had to take pictures by myself so I could write this. Both hands look like this, but seeing as I am not that talented, I couldn't take a picture of both hands at once, and since they both look the same, you guys get to see good old lefty.

I bet you are thinking "wow, what did you do?" and the only answer I have is I HAVE NO IDEA! I woke up with this yesterday morning. It started out as just some redness and swelling at the base of my fingers, and then yesterday afternoon blisters started to form. You can really only see two blisters in the pictures, but I have 4 more on that hand hiding in between my fingers, plus 4 on the other hand. The tips of my fingers are fine- it seems to just be at the base and in between my fingers and a whole lot of swelling in the knuckles. Also, it is only on the dorsal surface, nothing on my palms. It feels like I burned myself, but I haven't. I haven't changed any lotions, soaps or detergents in my house in probably a month. I can't think of anything odd or new that I have come in contact with recently. I called my OB she said it doesn't sound pregnancy related since she has never heard of that before. So I called my general doctor who said that sounded really weird and I needed to come in and have it looked at. My doctor, as well as all her colleagues in her office, were all stumped. None of them could think of any possible reason for this to happen. So now I get to play the waiting game this weekend and see what happens. Weird, huh!

Cheap Diapers

If any of you are looking for cheap diapers out there and have never used, I have a deal for you! You can get $50 of diapers for $25! Here is how:

Go to

Fill your cart with $50 worth of diapers.

Use coupon code CCIN6116 at check out to get $10 off your order of $50. You will automatically get free shipping because the order is over $49. This coupon code only works for NEW customers, so if you already have an account with them, it wont give you the discount.

When you are checking out, look for a banner that looks like this:
Click on it and print out the refund offer. Fill it out and send it in with a copy of your receipt. I believe this refund is also only available to new customers.

With the coupon code and the refund, you get $50 of diapers for $25. For the sizes that I ordered, I got 284 diapers, which comes out to a little over $.08 per diaper. Not bad! I already ordered mine and they came in just a couple of days, so the free shipping is really fast. I submitted for my refund, also. It takes a few weeks to get that back, so I don't have it yet, but that will be a nice surprise in the mail when I do get it! Hope this deal helps some of you out!

UPDATE: I have received an email from parenting magazine and my rebate is on its way!
