Wow! two posts in one day?! I should really pace myself, I might pull something!

In all seriousness though.

I am pretty sure that I want to do cloth diapers. I think Kyle is on board with it too. He has never really dealt with diapers, so I don't think he really knows what to expect either way.

But I don't know what brand/kind/design to go with!

We have this fabulous place practically down the street from us called Tiny Tots, they are a diaper service. They will drop off fresh diapers for you weekly and take away the dirty ones (kind of fabulous if you ask me), my mom had it when my brother was born and it was pretty nice not to have to wash all those diapers. But it is expensive and the diapers are the baby burp cloth style diapers. Not that there is anything wrong with those, because they work just fine! I was just thinking that I wanted to get ones that have an insert or something like that, and that we could wash ourselves, since I really don't think it is going to be that big of a hassle (I don't think).

SO, Tiny Tots also has a boutique where you can go and buy other cloth diaper styles. But I don't know what to get! and that's where you all come in!

For those of you who have looked into cloth diapers, and/or are using them, which brands/styles stood out to you? Why or why not?

Thanks for all of your help ladies! I really appreciate it!

PS. Expect more posts like these as we get closer to D-Day... This having a baby stuff is confusing!

6 months

I am 6 months pregnant today!


It is such a crazy feeling! To know that I have a little baby growing inside of me, and that in 3 months (give or take) she will be here and in my arms!
I know I haven't posted any belly pictures yet, that's because I don't have any! I am planning on taking some this weekend and will hopefully be able to show you my growing belly after that.
Oh! I started feeling her move this last week! That's crazy too! All of a sudden a little touch here, a bump there... Really surreal!

The nursery is starting to come together a bit. We really don't have much yet, but we have cleaned out all of the "extra" stuff that doesn't need to be in there and so that helps. I have also started arranging the furniture that we do have so that it is positioned where I want it. I got the Borsgard cradle from my mom, the one that my siblings and I all slept in when we were first born, and set it up in the nursery. Right now it is where I think the crib will go, when the baby is born the cradle will go in our room, but for now it can be a place holder. ^_^ Besides, it really makes the room look more like a nursery than a spare room!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving my friends and I will hopefully update you again before too long!

Pachabel Rant

If you haven't seen this I highly recommend you watch this! Pachabel Rant by Rob Paravonian. There are a couple of spots that might not be kiddo friendly so, watch it first before you share it with your kids too.

and yes, I walked down the aisle to Pachabel's Cannon in D. I love this piece ^_^

Hi Ladies,

I have a question for you all, I guess guys could answer this too if they read this blog and have input, but it is mostly geared toward women...

Did you use a Doula when you gave birth?

What was your reasoning behind using or not using a Doula?

This is something that I have been pondering lately, and even more recently because I just found out that my sister in law's boyfriend's mom is a doula and in training to become a midwife (but not for another couple years)... So if I had someone that I could easily pick, rather than having to research Doula's in the area, it would be easier, but I really don't know if we need or want one.

So again, the questions are:
Did you use a Doula when you gave birth?
What was your reasoning behind using or not using a Doula?

I have lots of other baby related questions too (mostly surrounding labor and what needs to be done) but those can wait for another day...
