So I got really motivated and started recycling this last month. I even went to talk to our apartment managers and ask if they wanted to get the whole complex to start recycing. I basically got a "yeah right, no way" response. That's ok, cause you can only change the world one person at a time starting with yourself (someone once taught me that). So, I went to "cash in" my recycled goods today and it felt great not only to get rid of the three boxes on my deck of cans/cardboard/milk jugs but to 'do my part' to help keep the world a little cleaner and the landfills a little smaller:) I got one cent for every milk jug (I had 11) and about 10 cents for the cans I had. It took all of 2 minutes to drop everything off. And I got a woppin $0.21 cents!! When I first brought my recycling in the guy asked me if I just wanted to drop it off or weigh it. Weighing it means, get paid for what ever it's worth. Of course I wanted to see how much it'd be worth, even though thats not the point or my purpose in recycling. Really twenty one cents doesn't change my life, and I probably won't even cash in next time. I'll just let them keep their twenty one cents and hope that they will pay thier workers more for working in such a stinky place (literally) or put it towards this good cause. So if you don't recycle and want to "go green" in your own way, just put your cans, milk jugs, paper, and cardboard aside instead of throwing them away! Even if your husband doesn't like it, it will feel great! :) Yeah for Recycling!!

Random pictures of Brady lately

Brady is holding onto BOTH remotes for the TV! Ha ha. Don't encourage him Robert!
Hot enough to be naked! he's getting really good with his feet and kicking, but no grabbing quite yet.
One day I put Brady down and realized he was watching the TV!! Aaaaahhhh!!!!
Robert thought this was pretty funny. His glow worm somehow got perfectly wedged between his nose and the edge of his crib; but that didn't phase Brady. Brady is the Cutest.
Waiting patiently for his milk.
Sucking on his fingers always does the trick:)
When Brady first started to suck his thumb. Now it won't do, he has to suck on at least 2-3 fingers at once:)
We discovered this park with a Labrynth! We made it to the middle!
My boys taking a Sunday snooze. Robert loves to nap with Brady. They are both zonked out.
His favorite doggy. It plays music and helps him get to sleep. Baby's best friend. Notice also that Robert put a diaper on the dog too.
Robert likes to take pictures of Brady holding things or in things. Notice it's on his right or 'wrong' hand:) By the way this was at least a month ago.
