My cousin Tonia is having a baby girl in January! I just found out and I am so excited! Her name is going to be Alina Elizabeth. Iliana now has a name buddy in our growing family :)

currently reading up on this and sounds pretty good. Anyone try this?

"Quiche and waffles"

That’s right, she’s having a whole
Mini cheese and broccoli quiche and an open waffle sandwich: Ham, salami (2 slices please), and Gouda.

That’s my girl ;)

And to think we had such struggles with food at first. Her pallet is amazing! Lobster ravioli with pesto is one of her favorites, as is falafel, and butter chicken extra spicy!

cloth101 this is where I usually have the snaps which ones do you think I should let out? Just the hip?

I would let out the rise (the snaps in the middle) and see if that helps. If not, then move the thigh snap one. Sunbaby has VERY tight elastics (my son got the same chaffing rash in them) is that a size one or two?

I am reblogging this because I had all sun baby diapers for a while and it left awful marks no matter how loose I did the snaps. They have a size 1 and 2, but I noticed no difference when I switched to size 2.
I will say that sunbaby is a great diaper to start off with, but as baby gets larger and thighs get chubbier they just don’t work out. Such a shame because their prints are so cute, and they are very affordable! Would make an excellent diaper for more petite babies.
I’ve since then swapped my entire sunbaby stash (I had a lot) to an alternative happy flute - it’s lined with charcoal and comes with charcoal inserts, and it’s an open pocket on both ends. They are like the happy flute brand but suped up and modified for better performance. It is mega absorbent and once paired with a prefold, it makes for a great night time diaper.
I would sell the sunbaby stash and get another brand as baby will keep on growing :)
Just throwing in my 2 cents :)

My son is 19 months, 25lbs and fits his sunbaby size 2, perfectly. And happy flute sucks on him. Haha Every baby is different.

Haha! I just read your post about the Happy Flute. That is unfortunate that it did not fit your babe, they are super super absorbent and I love the double gussets, totally helps in the poop department. Wish I didn’t already own that print you are giving away. 
I really wish the Sunbaby diapers worked out for us, but it always left marks  and redness. Once we switched to other brands we saw no more chaffing and marks. Now the non charcoal Happy Flutes, those suck. The lack of hip snaps bugs me big time! My son walks around with them on and the wings just dangle out of the diaper, its so silly. 
I’m glad there are so many options to try though! We just got a Moraki diaper in elephunk print (run about $27 ppd) and it fits SOOOO tight on my son.  I’m gonna fiddle with the settings after I wash it since he already got it dirty and see if it fits better. Makes me sad cos its such a pretty diaper.
It’s a crazy trial and error process, but at least with cloth its fun and pretty :)

What a lovely day today was. I realize I still have friends. I have to do a better job of holding on to these people. 
I’ll write more later, but I wanted to post this photo of Lucas and I at the beach today. I never get to have photos taken of me, so I was quite happy with this one :)

Please, help me! Ahh I am dying :( 

congestion so strong. no will to feed self or the children. 

In need of a nanny for the day so I can curl up in a ball and die quietly. 

EFF the summer sickness I always get this time of year. Without fail its either pre birthday, during birthday, or 2 weeks after, but it always comes! Allergens are afoot and I have no idea what I could be so allergic to :/ 

currently infused in a mist of essential oils to help this congestion move on. Works way faster than drugs. I love being crunchy. And I love my husband for buying me essential oils.
