Now that my little girl is getting a little more mobile, I am ready to start blogging again.

First of all, I have ATT Uverse which is vastly better than Comcast was. Nevertheless, my bill has been creeping up and I took some action to reduce my bill. First, I eliminated the sports package and then I cut back on my base package. Saved about $30 per month.

My wife and I just returned from our baby girl's 2nd water babies class. I don't know who invented swim classes for 8 months old. I do know that they were GENIUS. Since she cannot swim by herself, my wife and I got to spend wonderful time playing with a little girl. Last week, I enjoyed it so much that I nearly cried.
Sometimes, spending money is worth it.

My baby girl is growing and her days in the infant carrier are coming to a close. With that in mind, my wife and I decided to buy two convertible car seats for her. Although I am frugal, I am not going to skimp on something as important as my child's safety and the inconvenience a poorly designed seat would cause me. For a that reason, we bought a Britax Marathon for our family vehicle and a Britax Roundabout (smaller and cheaper) for my truck.
Using Amazon: We saved about $75 from what Baby's R Us wanted plus we probably save another $25 in sales taxes.
