doppleganger?

I was editing little g’s birth story and about meh… and came across this photo.

It’s me and my dad, circa 1985. look familiar?

he really is a chip off the old block…

week one: iphone photos…

trying to get on the photo train… here goes nothin’. oh, and this is yet another post idea I borrowed. I got it from a couple of other fab mommy blogs.

I guess I’m supposed to put what day of the week each picture was taken. pheff, I’m lucky to know when it’s daytime. highly unlikely for me to recall which day each of these were taken… but right now, it’s all bebe… all the time.

diaper duty :)

this shirt is awesome. I found it on etsy. it’s blink baby’s shop. luff her.

am I a terrible mother for thinking this is adorable? I can totally hear him saying, “mama! no photos!” plus, this is an adorable diaper from rumparooz. they have the best prints. not my fav diaper, but awesome prints.

“baxter, you know I don’t speak spanish!” – ron burgandy, anchorman.

this could easily be a bebe picture of me. nuts.

I never mug like this for the camera, but this is too frickin’ cute.

luff my sling. so does he.

sorry my pics are all the same… not getting out much right now. hopefully you mamas understand :)…

cloth diapering…

makes me happy inside… but we already knew that… :)

so, I’ve bought WAY too many diapers… by just about every brand out there. it’s fun! I can’t help it… plus, it’s not like it’s something I won’t use… and the ones I don’t like I’ll just sell on diaperswapper.com… or at least that’s how I’m justifying it. :)

here’s my stash thus far:

(some in the laundry :))

4 sbish fitteds
2 sbish snapless
8 perfect sized fuzzibunz
1 one size fuzzibunz
10 one size bumgenius (even one of the artist series!)
2 bumgenius elementals
3 romparooz
5 grovia (will be adding to this when the new prints debut in Dec)
3 one size kawaii (got them free from kellyscloset.com)
1 thirsties cover
2 thirsties duo diaper
3 proraps covers
2 wool soakers
2 wool longies
2 greenline covers
1 goodmama fitted
7 prefolds (6 indian cotton, 1 thirsties prefold)

I’m sure I’m forgetting one or two here and there, but you get the jist. I went a little shopping nuts. it was fun though. and the cool thing is, I get to keep adding to it! (not at the moment, obviously.) I’m pretty sure my husband would have a heart attack if he saw this list. love you, babes. ;)

my favorites thus far are definitely the sustainablebabyish fitteds. I love the way they fit g. no leaks, tight fit without cutting into his little thighs. also, they plant a tree for every diaper sold. nice touch. not to mention their wool covers! I have a soaker of theirs that is awesome… and some longies in route. plus, the owner, erin… super personable. it’s nice when the company is just as cool as the diapers. so, I would definitely recommend these. I will be buying many more in the future, I’m sure.

the ultimate competition seems to be between bumgenius and fuzzibunz. I bought pocket diapers in both brands. I like them both for sure. I would say if I had to pick a fav I would say I love the bumgenius because they seem to wick away the moisture better than the fuzzibunz… however, the xsmall perfect size fuzzibunz fit my little man like a glove… he’s getting too big for them, which is a bummer… if all fuzzi’s fit like these guys did they might get my vote strictly on that because the inner lining on the fuzzi’s are SUPER soft… so that’s my two cents on that… fav place to buy these are kelly’s closet, jillian’s drawers, and banana peels diapers. I would probably exclusively buy from banana peels because it is run by a mama in her home… but the shipping time seems to be significantly slower than the other two. (which are bigger store/corp. type sites)…

oh, I cannot forget greenline diapers… canadian diaper company I found through etsy (luff etsy!). they have the most adorable prints. I am still waiting for them to arrive, so I can’t comment on durability and fit… but cuteness ratings are through the roof… and the customer service is uhhhhmazing. the owner helped me with paypal difficulties last night over and over… and stayed patient. who does that at 1am?! so, I hope the diaps rock, bc I’d love to buy from them again…

all the rest kind of blend together… the grovia’s and the flips are awesome because they will be my daycare/outing diapers seeing as they have the option of using disposable inserts. hoping my daycare will do the cloth diaper thing. haven’t asked them about it yet. cross yer fingers. :)

well, I’ll stop boring you with my cloth diaper nonsense. if you’re a mommy thinking about cd’ing or preggers and trying to take the leap… check out this blog all about cloth diapers … made me a believer! and I’m so glad it did! (although, nothing against you who use disposables. to each their own…) :)

toodloo…

oh and p.s. slings are amazing! grayson is lying with me right now in his sling and I’m hands free to type this. awesome sauce.

no more cabin fever…

I don’t wanna bug, but today has been a fanfreakingtastic day. so many things happened and they all had me smiling… how often does that happen after one hour, let me repeat that, one hour of schleep…?

well, I suppose I better start at the beginning.

this morning, shortly after john got home, we were sitting in the living room catching up. I like to sit in the recliner indian style with mah bebe in between my legs on my lap. we talked and talked… (he had some drama at work last night…) and boogie butt started to fuss, so I lifted him up to pat him on the back… and then I felt something warm and thick… yep, folks my bebe shat all over me… mind you, I had just showered. all over my legs (3/4 pants, what?), my hands and my shirt… part of me wondered, how long had that been there? I didn’t notice it come out… that’s neither here nor there… I suppose the point of this story is I laughed my frickin’ tail off… it was highly hilarious. gross, yes… but hilarious.

once I was re-showered and dressed, we decided it was time to take little man out for the first (well, sorta. lots of peed visits)… outing. we decided to take him to babies r us to pick up some (gasp!) formuala… it was so fun. he was sleeping the whole time and it was nice to hang out with the hubs away from the house… and all of its distractions… we always have had so much fun together. so his first outing was a success. since he was a preemie, I think he looks days old instead of a almost five weeks. I’m sure peeps were glaring and thinking I was nuts for bringing him out… but we have to start taking him out at some point, right? plus, I’ve never been so happy to push a stroller…

when we returned home, unfortunately it was time for john to hit the hay. so I decided it was time for baxter, grayson, and I to take a walk around the neighborhood. it was the first time we’d gone by ourselves and it was delightful. it was very freeing to put grayson back in his carseat and take him… by myself. plus, it was the first day I realized I don’t need to be locked up in the house all of the time… it’s not good for my psyche… probably not good for anyone… so, I’m happy to have gotten out. now the rain seems to be on its way, so I’m going to try and get out as much as humanly possible. it’s going to be a long winter, I’m sure.

I walked in the house and decided I wanted to cook tonight. one of the biggest issues I had in my pregnancy was puking. I mean 24/7 puking… once on zofran (thankthelordjesus for the person who invented this wonder drug)… I was only puking a couple of times a day and I could function again… but I still couldn’t cook because the smells would get my stomach churning… and touching meat? forget it. disgusting. so of course, the obvious choice of meals was meatloaf. putting my hands in that loaf mixing it up was amazing. starting to feel like pre-pregnancy sara, just with an adorable kiddo in tow. plus, john had been begging for meatloaf for a while… so it seemed only natural. and I hadn’t lost my touch, it was delish.

so all in all, perfect day. I’ve been needing one of these for a while…
