Addicted To Cloth December 22, 2008

I have a serious addiction to cloth diapering. For those of you who do not use cloth diapers, or who do not have a serious shopping addiction, you may not understand this. i’m not sure if my addiction stems from my love of shopping or my need to enjoy something cute and fluffy. Whatever it is, I’m in deep.

When I find a diaper I love, I have to have more of them. Alot more. I have gone through spurts where I have a new favorite diaper every month. As you can imagine, that doesn’t help out my pocket book much. Thankfully, I take good care of my diapers and have been able to  sell them for close to what I paid for them. It has been quite a roller coaster ride though, and luckily I have convinced my husband that it’s ok!

It all started with Bumgenius. I tried them and a few other diapers, and decided that was the diaper – there was nothing better. So I started to grow my stash so I had enough diaper to last a few days and had all Bumgenius. I was quite happy with it like that for a few months. Then I couldn’t resist the urge to try something new. (I think that was about tax refund time) And that was when it was really all over. With a little money to play with, I quickly began changing up my stash, several times. Do you have any idea how many kinds of diapers there are out there? So many….. So I tried a bunch of the popular ones, switched from all pockets to prefolds to fitteds and then to fitteds and pockets. LOL.

I can say that I am mostly over my trying everything out phase. I pretty much have to be with the state of the economy anyway. I have found one type of fitted I love, and one type of pocket I love, and have built a nice stash with them. I am pretty happy. Except when my favorite WAHM puts out a new pretty batch of fluffies that I have to try to resist. Thats when I have to find something to sell so I can buy more!

I mean you should see these diapers! They are adorable! The prints are so cute, the diapers so soft! I love to wrap a new and soft diaper on my baby’s bum and know how nice it must feel against his skin. Such luxury! I wish I could have something so nice. I’m just glad that cloth diapering is something we can both enjoy. I wonder what he’ll think when he gets older and relizes all this?

Sweet Baby Kisses December 7, 2008

Some of the sweetest moments between my baby and I happen in our family bed. I get more kisses and laughs from him than any other time. The new thing he does that I think is just adorable is when he is nursing and then stops so he can give me a kiss. He does this often when I am putting him down for the night. And there is nothing better than waking up to a sweet baby kiss in the morning. It’s hard not to fall in love with him all over again. I think about how I would miss out on the moments if we weren’t sharing a family bed.

More than I love my sweet baby kisses, I love weekend mornings. My husband is home on those mornings, and the three of us sleep in. When my baby wakes up and sees his Daddy there, he immediatly rolls over to give him a kiss. It reminds me of the sweet relationship the two of them share. As much as he loves and needs  his Mommy, he also loves and needs his Daddy. That is a really special thing. I am so glad that we can share these special moments together.
