After baby butterfly got her first set of vaccines, I was able to leave home with her. Again, this month I had a couple of categories where I spent $0. My family continues to visit and bring me takeout every weekend so my food expenses is still low. This month the childcare category went up significantly since we had to buy a few baby gears. We bought everything new due to safety concerns.
