Playing Catch Up!

I feel like I have been so busy since school ended. Here is a post to play a little catch up.

Eliza has been moving a lot. Her new favorite thing is to find microscopic fuzzies on the carpet. So now I am vacuuming and sweeping everyday. She also enjoys eating paper. Since she started crawling she has been go, go, going! I can't believe how fast she is developing. Where did my baby go? She no longer wants to be contained in any way which makes getting things done rather difficult. Here is my little momma on the move...

The wedding was amazing. We all had an awesome time and I can't believe it is over. The bride and groom are off enjoying their honeymoon. Here are some pics from the night taken by one bridesmaids' fiancee. You can see all of his work from the night here. My hubs took a zillion awesome pics too but he is working on editing them.



Cloth diapering is going well. We have had a couple leaks. I definitely prefer one brand of diapers so far. However, overall I am very impressed by all of the brands. The only problem is that Eliza has been going #2 like five times a day for some reason so I have had a big mess. My MIL suggested dunking the diapers to get the goo off. I would love any suggestions on this nasty duty!

My niece Alli has been with me for a little over a week. We have been keeping very busy. She has been grating old candle and making new candles from the shavings. She has also been melting down old crayons and putting them into candy mold to make new crayons. She did a post on it-but I haven't had time to add pictures.

On the baby wearing front...

I have been working on the hip carry in my Mei Tai and on getting Eliza on my back with no help. Yesterday I received a Gypsy Mama wrap I ordered (after winning some money) so I am stoked to try out some carries with a SPOC!

Great pics, hope you have a great weekend!

So does Eliza still want to be held while she sleeps? Have you tried laying down in bed with her? That way maybe you could both get a nap!

Anyways, the new carriers are beautiful. I would enter your contest, but I am pretty sure that we couldn't use an XS.

For the poopy diapers - we do dunk and soak them in the toilet - totally grossed me out at first, but I got over it. If you plan on sticking with the cloth diapering, they do make a diaper sprayer, like this one-

I have not gotten one yet, but I guess that it hooks up to the back of your toilet and you can just spray the poo right into the toilet without having to dunk. Fun times. :)

I love those babywearing pictures! And for poopy diapers, i rinse them in an old ice cream pail (but I wear rubber gloves!! haha)...it works great. Once they get older and have more solid poops though, you can usually just dump the poop into the toilet...no rinsing required! Good luck.
