Lately.....

Lately....
I have been too busy to blog....and honestly....I have not wanted to blog!!

I was sending pictures to Walgreens a few nights ago to be printed and I thought that I should post a few on my blog....especially for friends and family who don't always get to see the girls!

Preschool will be starting for Kiley in a few weeks and I will get back into the "blogging groove"!

Here is a glimpse of what we have been doing over the last few weeks!!



Lily has become quite the Rockband player!!


Kiley went to swim lessons for two weeks and did WONDERFUL!!


Lily has gotten even better at climbing UP the slide....
still with no success of going down!


Lily has started attending Sunday school at church....
here she is reading her baby Bible!!


Kiley went to Tinlee's awesome birthday party....
complete with pedicures and dress up clothes!!


Kiley played in the rain!!


I had to cut Lily's hair for the first time after Kiley cut a HUGE chunk out of the back!
I was one unhappy mommy!


I put the back of Lily's hair in her first ponytail.....
the night before her sister took the scissors to it:(


I got this GREAT picture of my stubborn, picture taking hating child....
it is now in black and white....hanging in my hallway!


We went to a small water park in a nearby town....
hopefully we will get to go again before the summer is over!

I will try to post again soon....
I might be able to tell you how Feeding Therapy is going for Lily...
and may even have a picture of her cute therapist...Ginger...she is SO sweet!
I might also tell you how cloth diapering is going....
yes, you read that correctly, I am trying cloth diapers!
I might even have a few pics of my cutie pie in the diapers...
I got the cutest colors ever!
I might even find a good giveaway to post...
not that I even win but it is fun to try!
But until then...
I hope you have enjoyed this post!

You are SO NOT bothering me!!

Okay.. so I have a diaper genie.. not condusive to cloth! So I am using that for the wipes. I bought this for when I go out.. (I'm trying to stick to cloth even then..)

I bought this for her nursery to hang off her changing table.

(I haven't received this yet and have been using the travel bag until I get it)

I haven't bought diaper cream but here is one on that same website that is cloth safe.

If I have a rash problem I may put her back in disposables and use what I would normally put on her. I'm just praying I don't have that problem!

A lot of our local baby stores/boutiques carry them and I LOVE them. They are made really well. The tiny ones are about $2.00/bow but worth it. They have EVERY color under the sun as you can probably tell. I would check your local stores first. Here is where I have bought most of mine.. if you can't find it locallly I bet they would mail them to you.

I bought the small planet wise wet/dry bag for my diaper bag and I love it. I bought a blueberry pail liner to hang off her changing table to put her dirty diapers in. I am not using cloth wipes. I don't know if I'll venture down that road or not. I have 3 fuzzi bunz and probably won't buy anymore. I have 2 blueberries (I bought one more in addition to the one I tried out for the same reason.. they are so cute..) and they do fit pretty well. However, the BG are the best for us and I now have a ton of those. The newest blueberry I bought was a minky one and it is really cute! (I probably will buy more down the road). I wish we lived close to get these girls together. I would love to see them interact!

You are NOT bothering me!!! I have 17 now.. I'm sure I bought more than I needed. She goes through 4 - 6 diapers a day. I wanted to be able to go 2 days or so before washing. They have a chart on Kelly's Closet .. I think they say 12 diapers for toddlers.

Shelby said...

hmmm.. they are more like the FB probably because I chose snap and they are pocket only. They do have more of a flap than the FB but not as good as the BG one. You should just do it and try it out! Oh and the insert is different.. it's hemp and a tri-fold. Suppose to absorb more. Which one would you buy? I got a lavendar one and the pink/lavendar minky polka dots...they are really cute! How many did you buy total?? Or have you? Also.. check out http://www.theclothdiaperwhisperer.com/ they are doing a giva-a-way.. it's pretty good info blog!

Hey! You know what.. traveling with cloth was not bad at all! There was a washer and dryer there and I just did one load. My family was pretty impressed with the whole thing! I just wish I already had the cloth swim diaper. I heard they work better. Sounds like you got a great stash! I LOVE my minky blueberry. Let me know what you think??!! You'll have to take some pictures and post on your blog!
