The Wonder

Mama & Baby Legs, originally uploaded by hobocampcrafts.

I took the picture yesterday, I was borrowing a pair of my mom's legwarmers and changing the baby. Just the difference in the size of our legs is amazing. Plus her little tiny froggy legs warm my heart.

I've been visiting my parent's house a couple of times a week since my pregnancy. So once H arrived- there was no reason to change this ritual.

Yesterday was no exception- as we picked up a chai (drive-thru) of course and headed North to my parent's. We made perfect time to see Obama's big day. Michelle looked amazing and I just couldn't get over my sense of pride that we elected this man. I remember in college voting and a few of the suitemates had voted for Bush- man did I feel helpless when he won, I am glad things turned out the way they did.

We started using reusable diapers. The Bum Genius 3.0 are wonderful! The inside hardly holds any pee and so I can reuse them shorty after air-drying them for a bit. The Fuzzi Bunz was a little less than wonderful as H used her chance to poop- a very runny-down-her-leg poop, which then stained the outfit she was wearing. The FB diaper did come very clean though lol. I also started using Thirsties covers- which don't leak- but the prefold was sooo soaked!

Friday I have an appointment with a new Gastro doctor. I'm still not back to normal. Some have said- well you have to expect this after having a baby- which is fine- but I've also read that after 2 weeks most are back to normal. Anyone have any stories? I'm wondering if it is just me?!

Our little shop is still puttering- but I aven't had much time to take pictures, sew or add new items. I'm hoping somehow- somewhere I can find a block of time to play.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Thanks for the diaper review! I'm due in 6 weeks and have been wanting to buy some, but nobody I know uses them!
