Cloth Diapers!~!~!~!~

Oh goodness. I sure hope I like them. I've been ordering a couple here and there from ebay, on sale at cd online stores,, amazon, etc. I also want to look into making them. Must-walk-to-sewing-machine-and-take-out-of-box. That's my little garage sale find. cheap little machine. The main reason I want to cloth diaper is saving money. Although saving the earth is nice too. And man.. it's a lot of saved landfill space. I just look back at HOW MUCH MONEY and HOW MANY DIAPERS Noah has gone through. Even still.. we do pull ups at night. So it's still going! ah! It takes a big commitment. But I'm staying home.. so I just have to roll up my sleeves and do it. And they are soo cute. so so cute.

This baby girl in my belly is still not named! Cassidy.. Camelia.. something. we'll figure it out. We went camping this past weekend, and I really thought we'd have some baby name talking time. But.. John got SICK. It was literally freezing outside. The camper turned out to be tiny. too tiny. I actually cried the first night. But that's because we couldn't figure out the heater. The campground had no hookups. Yes.. very basic. Just a parking place and fire pit..haha.. so.. The first night we all cuddled together for warmth. And John was coughing all over us. So.. I'm officially getting an itchy throat. I think Noah is too... :( Oh well. John didn't have a fever so hopefully it will just run its course and be gone. He also got a heck of a sty(sp?) in his eye. Sort of a messy weekend! Anyway.. Not much baby name book reading.

I think I have everything I need for the baby. Except a changing table. We had one with Noah but in the years since it got pretty roughed up..and is no longer with us. So I'm hoping to snag one at an upcoming consignment sale. A small one. Since we have just a small space available for it to reside in. I've been having a few braxton hicks contractions. And this is about the time I started having them with Noah. Ah!!!! I'm 25 weeks today!!! wow.. I'm having a baby. crazy.

oh poo i hate getting sick. I've been terribly lucky though. This is the first time my whole pregnancy.

I did cloth diapers for a few months and didn't find them that bad. The poo diapers were the bad ones, but if you just shake and swirl them in the toilet its not too bad of a clean up! Just make sure you wash them separately from your clothes....obviously:) I remember going camping when I was about 7 months preggo and it was freezing cold...we were in a was the stupidest thing to do in my stage of life. I remember having to pee 50 million times at night and I refused to get out of the tent and have my butt exposed in the 20 degree weather, so I found a gallon ziplock and that was my potty! I know thats disgusting...but what can I worked! Hope you get to feeling better!

That is too funny! We were lucky enough to get to pee in the bathroom at the camper. We just followed with water from a jug. And holy cow, a tent would NOT have happened for sure :) You are very brave!
