I went online to find some ideas and clipart so then I can print them off my printer. This also saves me from going out and spending on wallpaper. Everything is printed, including the photos. So, anther money-saving solution for me. Yay!
Remember the before and after pics when we first moved Brandon's crib in his own room? [LINK]. I took some snapshots to share with you. Here is what it looks like now with decorations:

We started moving furniture from the computer room into our bedroom and moving the crib from our bedroom to the computer room (which is now Brandon's room). We also put in a single bed beside the crib so then I can co-sleep in the same room when he needs me. Later on, that single bed will be for him when he gets older.
Here are some BEFORE pics.
Yes, Brandon gets his own computer. It's old, but it works.

What I really want to share is this new toy I got for Brandon. It's called the Fisher Price Rock, Roll & Ride Trike. What I like about it is that it's got 3 settings: rocking, transforms into a tricycle when he can reach the pedal, and ride it while I push him. He loves it! He was having so much fun. I do hear a lot of reviews from other parents saying that they have difficulty controlling the direction and having to assist their child in steering. Brandon is still too small to pedal on his own, but I will see how it will work for him when he is bigger/older.

I'm using the spray bottle for convenience. I've tried cleaning Brandon's pants, which had pen marks, in the washing machine and still couldn't get it out. Then I used the OxiClean I had and it got rid of the marks almost immediately. This is great. I'd recommend this product to anyone.

It's late at night now, Brandon is asleep and I finally get to write or do my online work. It's kinda like working graveyards for me. I don't have much time to write a lot since Brandon's night awakenings are unpredictable.
Overall for Brandon's birthday party, everyone had a great time and Brandon got lots of gifts. Brandon was really excited for the new toys. I want to express thanks to her friends for coming over. I took some photos and I've uploaded to my online album here:
MyPhotoAlbum. Enjoy (and feel free to commment)! :)

It would be nice to try a different brand to see how it compares. I am still nursing Brandon and currently using the La Leche League brand. I have tried other brands such as Gerber and Lansinoh, but I didn't like it as much because the gel crystals would come out and stick onto my skin or my clothing. Sometimes it would leak if I have too much flowing.
The Evenflo I am trying is actually nice and soft and makes no mess. I really like them. It's just as comfortable as the La Leche League brand.
Hope to win bigger prizes such as a new toy for Brandon to use too.

Since I don't feed him formula, I think it is important for Brandon to continue to get all the nutrients he needs from breastmilk. And if he is ready to wean, I will let him make his decision. I hope I can keep up with my supply for the next few months.
