Cheapest Baby on the Block

selma1In case you missed my announcement on twitter, my wife and I had a baby! I’m hoping that little Selma becomes the cheapest baby on the block. I’m already teaching her about the joys of frugality. I’m pretty sure its sinking in. If you’ve been wondering, where are the awesome money saving posts? Is Joel just getting lazy on me? Well, sort of, but I’ve also been totally consumed and wrapped up in babyland – it’s a real place.

Having this itty bitty munchkin in our lives is cooler than finding a ten dollar bill as you walk a couple of extra blocks to your destination because you avoided paying for parking. She’s awesome. We couldn’t be happier. We also couldn’t be more thankful that both baby and mom are 100% healthy. As we found out in a recent Credit Karma survey, health is more important than money.

So without further adieu, here are a few pics of my beautiful little lady and our growing little family. I can’t stop playing with this cute little bundle but I promise I’ll get back to writing more money-saving advice very soon. In case you are wondering, yes, I’m definitely saving money on baby stuff in awesome ways. I’ll have an article on that soon too.IMAG1028selma2IMG_20130811_085644 IMG_20130724_181826selma3

      Thanks Brian. I kind of think she’s the cutest thing ever.

      One quick tip. Live near family. The free babysitting, although she’s too young for us to really take advantage of yet, is going to be phenomenal.
